Respiratory disease is a chronic condition that affects the organs and the tissues of the respiratory system. It occurs in the respiratory tract that includes alveoli, bronchi, pleura, bronchioles, trachea, pleural cavity, and nerves, and the muscles of the breathing. There are three types of respiratory disease. These are: Airway disease, Lung tissue disease & lung circulation disease. Airways diseases affect the oxygen and other gases carrying tubes into and out of the lungs. It usually results in blocking or narrowing of the passage. Lung tissue diseases affect the structure of the tissue of the lung and result in inflammation of the lung tissue that makes breathing difficult. Lung circulation diseases affect the capability of the lungs to receive oxygen and produce carbon dioxide and affect the functioning of the heart. It occurs when the blood vessels in the lungs become inflamed, clotted, or scarred. Respiratory diseases range from mild to self-limiting such as common cold, pharyngitis, and influenza to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, asthma, lung cancer, and pulmonary embolism, etc. 

 Allergy is a condition caused due to hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. Hay fever, food allergies, allergic asthma, atopic dermatitis, and anaphylaxis, etc are allergic diseases. The symptoms of the allergic disease include an itchy rash, red-eye, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or inflammation. It is considered as a chronic disease that lasts a long time or occurs often. The substances that cause a reaction are known as allergens. When an individual has an allergy, then the immune system of that person makes an antibody called immunoglobulin. These antibodies respond to allergens and the symptoms that result are called allergic condition. The common allergens include certain foods, pollen, metals, latex, medications, insect stings, toxins, genetics, and stress, etc. It can be prevented and managed. The best way to avoid allergic reactions is to avoid the allergens. It sounds easy to avoid but one can’t always avoid them because it is not possible to avoid all the outdoor activities. So, there are steps to reduce the chances such as don’t let allergens interfere with your day-to-day activities at home, work, or school or carry the medicine which may protect from that allergens. 

 Ayurveda and naturopathy treatments for respiratory disease & allergy are the best way to heal the conditions from the root. According to Ayurveda, respiratory disorders are fundamentally caused due to disturbance in the digestive fire, formation of toxin that causes disturbances in the respiratory passages, and vitiation of Kapha and Vata. The aggravated vata enters the respiratory passageway and dislodges the Kapha that leads to vata to constrict the airways and increase the production of Kapha. The management focuses to take out the excess Kapha from the system and to control the over production of Kapha, clearing the toxins, regularizing the flow of Vata, and strengthening the lungs, and correction in diet according to dosha involved. 

 According to Ayurveda, allergy is caused due to disturbance of Vata and Kapha. The management includes immunity building, reduce the vata and the Kapha, and avoid the factors that trigger the allergy. Dietary modification is also done to treat the symptoms from the root. 

 Naturopathy treatments for respiratory diseases & allergic disorders focus on modification in diet, change in lifestyle, and use of ancient and natural therapies. The holistic approach of treatment targets the root cause than treating merely the symptoms. The treatment method lies on the fact to makes the immune system stronger and capable to handle the allergens and provide complete recuperation and comfort.
