In modern science, Bronchial Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of airway. In modern medicine there is no cure for Asthma, symptoms can typically be improved. In Ayurveda, Asthma can be effectively and safely manage without inducing any drug dependency where Pachakarma procedures and use of internal medication detoxifies the body, provides nutrition and increases the elasticity of lung tissue, it also develops natural immunity of the body thus decreasing episodic recurrence of the disease. The present study is a review on the management of Tamaka-Shwasa through Ayurvedic approach that includes a Shodhana and Shamana chikitsa, use of herbel, herbo-mineral drugs, Yoga and lifestyle management.
