Treatment protocol aims at:
- Reducing the overproduction of mucus, controlling inflammation and lowering cough.
- Prevent recurrence by balancing the immune response.
- Long term relief and rejuvenating the body.
The first line of treatment should always be avoiding the causative factors. If the problem persists then consider the following treatment protocol.
In response to viral, bacterial or allergies,, the bronchial mucous membrane becomes inflamed and starts to produce too much mucus and the self-clearing mechanism of the airways also gets diminished. It narrows the airways making it clogged by debris and this further increases the irritation producing the characteristic cough of bronchitis with phlegm/mucus. Sometimes blood vessels around it ruptured and produced coughs with a streak of blood.
Narrow airway causes wheezing , breathlessness, and chest tightness. Body raises its temperature to combat infection and makes you feel weak and tired with head and body aches. Guduchi, Surasa, Swaskutar rasa, Kantakari, Vasa, increases the airway lumen, drains and clear mucus. Sudarshan churna is very effective in controlling the excess cough production. These all are very effective for inflammatory conditions and help to boost the immunity in the body.
