systemic review of Ayurvedic management in different clinical studies with special reference to Tamaka Shwasa

Simmi Rani


A chronic inflammatory condition affecting the airways leads to heightened sensitivity, frequent wheezing
episodes, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, and coughing, especially during the night or early morning hours.
A number of studies on treating Tamaka Shwasa using different shodhan and shamana regimen have been found in
different journals with varying results, but an evidence-based systemic review of them is not available. Hence, for
this total 24 articles were selected from different publication for the review. Out of 24 articles obtained, one study
(n = 24) exclusively focused on Shodhana Karma (Vamana and Virechana), one study (n = 24) focused on Snehana
and Swedana with Shamana Chikitsa, one study (n = 24) focused on Shamans Chikitsa with Pranayama, one study
(n = 24) focused on Shamana Chikitsa with Kunjal Karma, two studies (n = 24) focused on Shamans Chikitsa with
nebulization, one study (n = 24) focused on Ayurvedic formulation as a adjuvants, one study focused on Shamana
and Shodhana Chikitsa, and 16 studies (n = 24) focused only on Shamana Chikitsa. Out of 24 clinical studies,
11 studies showed highly significant result, one study showed comparatively insignificant result, and 12 studies
showed significant result. This systemic review comprises different Ayurvedic management in Tamaka Shwasa
in children under 15 year of age. It is proved to be beneficial the importance of Virechana and Vamana Chikitsa
along with Shamana Chikitsa. To enhance the resultant effect, addition of Kunjal Karma, Pranayam, nebulization,
Snehana, and Swedana can be done.
