Background: In Ayurveda Shwasa is a disease of Pranvha srotasa which is explained by all the Acharya in
detail. The disease, Tamaka Shwasa in the contemporary system of medicine resembles the clinical features
of Bronchial Asthma such as dyspnea, cough and chest discomfort. The etiological factors like exposure
to smoke, dust, seasonal variation and exposure to cold are also similar in both the condition. A rough
estimation in India shows 10-15% of Bronchial Asthma in the age group of 5-11 year old children.

management of Tamaka Shwasa. Material & Methods: The present study was designed as the comparative

were assigned to the two observational groups. Each interventional group participants were administered
with Abhaya sunthi churna for 14 days in both the groups A and B. Also in Group A there were additional
Snehana and Swedana procedures for 7 days and in Group B consist of Churna with Conventional therapy.
Results: In comparison significant results were seen only in Kasa in group A whereas other parameters
showed insignificant difference between the groups. The parameters such as Peenasa, Ghurghurkatwa,
Kaphanishtivana, Asinolabhatesaukhyam and Shwasakrichrrata showed reduction individually. The
comparative result of both the groups on Adventitious Sound, Significant result was noted on the 14th day
in group A who received Abhaya Shunthi Churna with Snehan Swedana after treatment in comparison with
