The pandemic changed the way we perceived our health. It forced us to sit up and take measures focusing on the improvement of each organ system. While respiratory tract infections have always been present, they mostly take form during the changing seasons. Agonizing and allergic coughs, runny and itchy nose, difficulty in breathing are all symptomatic of an underlying respiratory issue needing immediate attention.
Butterfly Ayurveda’s Bronchiofly Cough Syrup works comprehensively to take care of your respiratory health!
Understanding our Respiratory System
The lungs are the main respiratory organ that help you breathe in oxygen rich air and breathe out air rich in carbon-dioxide. The respiratory tract can be divided into two- the upper respiratory tract and the lower respiratory tract. The upper respiratory tract includes nostrils, nasal cavity, mouth, pharynx/throat and larynx/sound box.
The lower respiratory tract contains the trachea/ windpipe, bronchioles and the lungs which are protected in the rib cage. These, along with the diaphragm and respiratory muscles facilitate respiration or simply breathing.
Each of the above respiratory organs are susceptible to an array of ailments such as:
- Common cold & cough
- Viral infections
- Bacterial infections of the lung & tracts
- Bronchitis (inflammation of bronchi)
- Laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx)
- Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx)
- Allergic rhinitis
While modern medications might have made it possible to analyze the underlying respiratory concerns, it is always a good idea to undertake practices that have a lasting effect and cures the problem at the grassroot level.
Ayurveda and Respiratory Health
Ayurveda has been at the forefront of devising strategies and principles that help individuals lead a healthy and a disease-free life. To do this our learned ‘Rishis’ used the theory of ‘Panchmahabhoota’ consisting of, Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Space which were further condensed into what we now know as, Vata, Pitta & Kapha dosha.
Each of the above doshas’ are bestowed with specific functions, but when it comes to the respiratory system, ‘Vata’ and ‘Kapha’ are the key doshas responsible. When ‘Vata’ is imbalanced, it shows up in the form of dry cough, pain, cold, breathlessness and sneezing. While ‘Kapha’ imbalance is anything related to mucus such as running nose, wet cough, expectoration, nasal/chest congestion, and sinusitis.
Balancing ‘Vata’ and ‘Kapha’ is important to get rid of respiratory issues. At such a stage, Bronchiofly, a sugar -free Ayurvedic cough syrup bolsters the respiratory system and helps clear the respiratory tract, protecting the lungs and throat against infections.
