Ayurvedic Medicine

Cough is seen as a reflex to expel the residual phlegm. So medicines that reduce the sticky phlegm will help to reduce the cough. Medicated inhalation of smoke using karpoooradi varti and nasyam with Anuthailam will be beneficial.

Package of Ayurvedic medicines for dry cough can be then reviewed.

Include garlic, ginger, turmeric, pepper, coriander and honey. Reduce excess oil, cold refrigerated foods, refined flour, canned foods, salt and sweets. Drinking warm herbal teas like Organic Tulsi Mulethi Tea will be beneficial. Regular exercise and pranayamam will help to improve the function of the lungs and will also reduce the recurrence of cold or cough.

You are suffering from possible throat infections and lower respiratory tract infections which are of chronic type. Since it is long term, there is possible low immunity and that is why you are getting recurrent infections. If you are having cough associated, it has to be ruled out for other serious illnesses like tuberculosis etc.

You can start with the following medicines such as Diva Sanjeevani Vati, Shwasakalp Tablet one-one tablet twice daily after food and Vasavleh one teaspoon twice daily after food and to boost immunity you have Extrammune once daily.

There are few home remedies which you can follow such as preparing Tulasi Decoction by collecting handful Tulasi leaves and boiling it in 200 ml water and add black pepper seeds 8 and dry ginger ½ teaspoon and palm jaggery and reduce it to 100 ml and use it thrice daily in divided doses and even usage of onion slice laced with honey is also good home remedy.

Try to avoid spicy foods which may aggravate phlegm accumulation.

You can practice Matsyendrasana, Pavanamuktasana, Setubandasana, Bhujangasana, Adho Mukha Swanasana, Baddhakonasana, Poorvottanasana, Nadi shodhana Pranayama, Anulomaviloma Pranayama which are helpful in your health condition.

The respiratory symptoms like increased phlegm, cough and dyspnoea are seen due to the increased kapha. When there is redness in the throat with burning pain, it shows the increase of pitta dosha also. So medicines which reduce the pitta, kapha dosha will be beneficial.

Medicines like Baidyanath Kasamrita Herbal Cough Syrup, Divya Sitopaladi churnam and Vasavleh can be taken.

Eat soft cooked food. Reduce excess hot, spicy, oily foods that irritate the throat. Warm salt water gargling will be beneficial. Herbal teas like Tulsi Mulethi tea are beneficial.
