What is Pneumonia Ayurvedic treatment


Pneumonia is an infection that causes inflammation (swelling) in the air carrying tissues (air sacs) in either one or both the lungs. Due to the inflammation, the air sacs may be filled with fluid or pus that leads to symptoms like cough with phlegm or pus, fever, chills, and breathing difficult. Pneumonia is caused by a variety of organisms that include bacteria, viruses and fungi. 1

Pneumonia can be found in form of mild to life-threatening. It is considered very serious in infants and young children, people older than age 65, and people with health problems or weakened immune systems.1

Ayurveda describes types of fevers which resemble the symptoms of pneumonia. Pneumonia can be co-related with Shwasanaka Jwara (fever causing breathing problems). Similar to the samprapti (causes) of other jwaras (fevers), this condition is a resultant of multiple dosha dushya samoorchana (multi factorial). It is a dukh sadhya vyadhi (difficult to treat).2
