ABSTRACT

Background: Tamak Shawas is a type of Shwasa Roga associated with difficulty in breathing. Movement of air through the Pranavaha Sarotas is hampered in this disease resulting in the cry of the organ heading towards complete failure for want of air. Tamak Shawas is well known for its episodic and chronic course. It is analogous to Bronchial Asthma in contemporary medicine. The global prevalence of asthma is approximately 4.5 % and 334 million people in the world are suffering from asthma. About 250,000 to 345,000 deaths annually occur due to asthma world-wide.[1] There are many drugs available in contemporary medicine at present day but, none of the available treatments are found to be effective to provide a complete cure of this disease without having adverse effects. The need of some safe and potential ideal anti asthmatic drug is always felt by medical fraternity. So the present study has been planned to assess the anti-asthmatic effect of trial drugs. Methods: 30 patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria of Bronchial Asthma were randomly selected and divided into two groups, Group-I and Group-II comprising of 15 patients each. Data was collected and recorded in detail in a clinical proforma. The obtained data was analyzed statistically. Overall percentage improvement in each patient was calculated. Results: Analysis revealed that Group-I patients treated with Cap. Shwasi showed promising results in bronchial asthma while, Group-II patients managed with Capsule Shwasi along with Syrup Shwasi showed marginally better improvement in various subjective as well as objective parameters. Interpretation and Conclusion: Thus, Capsule and Syrup Shwasi proved to be safe and effective remedy in managing Bronchial Asthma. The present study provided a lead for the further study.

Keywords: Tamak Shwasa, Bronchial Asthma, Ayurveda.
