Cold, dry air increases risk of respiratory tract infections and even worsen during the winter. As winter weather rolls in, so do Cold, Sinusitis, Asthma and flu. For many people, Asthma attacks, cold, cough, sinusitis may happen more often in the winter .Many diseases in Ayurveda can be correlated with modern terminologies like cough-kasa, cold-pratisyaya, Bronchial Asthma-Tamaka swasa, Dyspnoea-swasa, Chronic Rhinitis-Pinasa,Dhusta pratisyaya-Sinusitis.
