Ayurvedic Treatment Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or copd is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that makes you hard to breathe. It is a progressive and incurable disease, causes due to imbalance airflow from the lungs. Because of copd regular activities such as walking or getting dressed become hard. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer and a variety of other conditions.

It’s estimated that about 30 million people in the United States have COPD. As many as half are unaware that they have it.

Types of COPD


There are two main forms of COPD:

  1.  Emphysema: This occur from damage of the walls of the alveoli (air sacs), located at the end of the bronchial tubes. As The damage walls disappear inside the alveoli, causes them to merge into one giant air sac. These larger sacs are not able to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and the blood. Also the lungs become stretched out and lose their springiness because of damaged alveoli. So, the airways become flabby and air gets trapped in your lungs causing you to feel short of breath.
  2.  Chronic Bronchitis: Chronic Bronchitis results from irritation and swelling of bronchial tubes. This causes coughing and shortness of breath. If mucus comes up with the cough and lasts at least three months for two years in a row, the bronchitis has become chronic bronchitis. There are tiny hair-like fibers lining the bronchial tubes called cilia help to move mucus out. In chronic bronchitis, you lose your cilia. This makes it harder to get rid of mucus, which makes you cough more, which creates more mucus. Mucus can build up in the lungs. This can cause more damage.

Causes of COPD


The two primary causes of COPD are cigarette smoking and alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency. Air pollution and occupational dusts might also contribute to COPD, especially when the person exposed to these substances is a cigarette smoker. Genetic causes other than AAT deficiency are also likely to contribute. COPD often occurs in people exposed to fumes from burning fuel for cooking and heating in poorly ventilated homes.Only about 20 to 30 percent of chronic smokers may develop clinically apparent COPD, although many smokers with long smoking histories may develop reduced lung function. Some smokers develop less common lung conditions. They may be misdiagnosed as having COPD until a more thorough evaluation is performed.
