Abstract

Vataja kasa is one of the most important and very common respiratory disease well described in Ayurveda. It has an increasing prevalence overtime due to the external influences such as environmental pollution, population explosion, industrialization and urbanization. Though it is not life threating disease, it troubles the diseased person in day to day activities. Western medicine has limited options of managing this disease and many people demands for alternative for it. Hence an attempt is made to review it. Classical texts of Ayurveda have enough described the causative factors, premonitory signs, symptoms, pathogenesis, do's and don’t's along with proper stage wise line of management of Vataja kasa. Changed lifestyle is responsible for different respiratory disorders. The prominent causes of Vataja kasa mentioned in Ayurvedic classical texts are polluted air due to dust (raja) and smoke (dhuma), which starts the pathological process by making abnormal the Pranavaha srotasa (respiratory system). The management is well explained by classical texts as per the stage and severity of the disease. If the Vataja kasa is not treated properly then it may cause other numerous diseases like haemothorax or pulmonary tuberculosis (kshataj kasa or kshaya); hence this disease must be addressed immediately.
