“Blossom with Beauty, Not Allergies.”
20%-30% of the Indian population suffers from respiratory allergies.Respiratory allergies can significantly impact one’s quality of life.Common allergy triggers are airborne allergens, such as pollen, animal dander, dust mites and mold.Respiratory allergies result from an overreaction of the immune system to allergens. In individuals with respiratory allergies, the immune system mistakenly identifies these substances as threats and triggers an inflammatory response in the respiratory tract.. Over time, repeated exposure may sensitize the immune system further, exacerbating allergic reactions.
Respiratory allergies are caused by proteins in the air that are inhaled and trigger airway inflammation. They may be due to specific allergic reactions, or more general reactions to irritants such as smoke and fumes in the indoor and outdoor environment that can aggravate allergy symptoms.
Respiratory allergies affect the respiratory system. Allergic asthma and allergic rhinitis are the two types of respiratory allergies. Allergic rhinitis (also called hay fever) results in nasal symptoms and itchy, watery eyes, while allergic asthma results in airway constriction.If these allergies are untreated it leads to acute or chronic sinusitis.
Common allergy symptoms include:
Runny or Stuffy Nose
Itchy or Watery Eyes
Wheezing and Shortness of Breath
AYURVEDIC ASPECT ON ALLERGIES
“Ayurvedic Insights: Harmonizing the Causes of Allergic Imbalances.”
1) IMBALANCE OF DOSHAS
In Ayurveda, allergies are believed to occur due to an imbalance in the body’s doshas, with a particular focus on the vitiation of the Vata dosha and Kapha dosha.When Kapha gets out of balance, it can cause your body to make more mucus and weaken your immune system. This makes you more likely to have allergic reactions.
Think of Vata as the boss of movement and air in your body. When it’s out of balance, you might become overly sensitive or jittery. Kapha is like the manager of mucus in your body. If it’s not in check, you could end up with too much mucus, causing congestion and that heavy feeling.
When your stomach and gut don’t work well,when the digestive system is not functioning properly, , it can lead to the formation of ama in your body, which can then trigger allergic responses. When your immune system is not working well, and your digestion is weak, it can make you more likely to have allergies.
3) UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE
If you don’t eat well, don’t exercise, and sleep irregularly, your body’s balance can get messed up, and your immune system can become weak. This can make you more likely to have allergies.Consuming foods that are considered to be “Vata-aggravating” or “Kapha-aggravating” can exacerbate the dosha imbalances. For example, excessive consumption of cold, raw, and processed foods may aggravate Vata, while heavy, sweet, and dairy-based foods can aggravate Kapha.
“Ayurvedic wisdom for winter health: Nourish with warm, spiced foods and balance your doshas to ease allergies and thrive”
Ayurveda, an ancient system of natural healing, offers some Ayurvedic approaches to managing allergies and staying healthy during the winter season :
1) Ayurvedic practitioners will check if your body’s doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) are in balance or if there is an imbalance. If there’s an imbalance, they’ll suggest treatments to bring your doshas back into harmony. This can help with conditions like allergies.
2) Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine, says that your body type, or “dosha,” affects what you should eat.
If you have too much “Pitta” (heat and fire) in your body, you should stay away from spicy foods that make you feel even hotter.
If you have too much “Kapha” (heaviness and cold) in your body, it’s a good idea to cut down on dairy and foods that make you feel too full or cold.
