Ayurvedic view of Treatment

In Ayurveda, all three doshas, vata, pitta kapha play roles in causing parshwashool.When Vayu gets aggaraved and collects from the body into the lungs. This kapha is thick. Hot Pitta liquefies kapha and converts it into watery fluid. As a result, there is accumulation of watery liquid in lungs. This aggravation of kapha can extinguish the gastric fire and hamper the digestion. Effective treatment is available in Ayurveda for parshwashool which includes certain Ayurvedic therapies, herbs and diet changes.
