Lungs breathe air from the atmosphere into the body and keep the organs in the body enriched with oxygen. But if any pathogen or microorganism enters the body through the airways, they irritate the lungs and cause infections or lung diseases. We are surrounded by toxins because they are an integral part of the environment surrounding us. Harmful microorganisms, Cigarette and factory smoke, air pollution because of vehicles, toxins and ignited fires all contribute to the list of harmful substances that enter our body when we inhale. It is essential to keep the lungs protected, healthy and free from any kind of infection.
Lungs have an amazing capability of self-cleaning and they can start their “health march” the moment the exposure to pollutants stops. The congested and mucus filled lungs make a person feel uncomfortable and heavy thus the irritants and mucus need to be cleared to make a person feel better and active.
When the smoking stops, recovery begins in almost no time. This is the reason why a smoker can recover from an inflamed, full and congested chest after he quits his cigarette urge! Timely intervention is a must and the best way to do it is take a free consultation from an Ayurvedic specialist at Divya Upchar clinics or www.shuddhi.com.
You may not believe it but air pollution is responsible for killing almost 4.2 million people all over the world. Nearly one person out of five people, end up dying because of smoke inhaled due to cigarettes, pipes, and cigars. Passive smoking is as dangerous as active smoking so you need to cleanse your lungs and keep them free from the attack of any kind of infectious substance.
Infections in the lungs cause the airways or air sacs to get choked with stringy mucus. The airways build up fluid, pus and get inflamed because of a viral, fungal or bacterial infection. Breathing can become painful and laborious. The mucus that collects in the air sacs attracts pathogens and microbes. These harmful organisms enter lungs, set base in the stringy mucus and start to reproduce and inflame the lungs, with their infection causing capacity. Lung infections in people are caused by bacteria, fungi, virus and parasitic infestations, they are like:
Pneumonia: Have you heard about pneumonia? In this the smaller air sacs get infected by communicable and infectious bacteria or viral strains. This spreads through sneezing or touch or droplet infection. To keep the lungs healthy it is essential that you take timely preventive action and resort to the effective and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatment for lungs infection.
Bronchitis: One of the most common infections seen in people is infection of the bronchial tubes in the lungs which are responsible for transference of air into the lungs and back out. Bronchitis is mostly caused by a virus which attacks the trachea and bronchial tubes and results in the collection of mucus and inflammation of bronchia. The air passages get swollen and the chest region hurts when breathing. In severe cases this can cause breathlessness and grave discomfort.
Bronchiolitis: This infection is mostly seen in little children and this happens when the bronchioles get affected by a microbial infection
Sometimes lung infections may be because of a fungal infection, and this, most of the times is seen in people who have an immunosuppressed body. People who take immunosuppressive medications or those who suffer from HIV or cancer catch these fungal infections very quickly. Lung infections may be communicable and may be a result of a recent travel tryst, exposure to certain animals or an occupational hazard.
The inflammation in the lungs and air sacs that are a result of the high pollution and smoke levels and infectious microbes need proper treatment. There are other specific techniques that are used to keep the lungs healthy and free from mucus but along with this preventive, and curative action needs precedence. Chest congestion and irritants in the atmosphere can be kept at bay with the help of Ayurvedic treatments. These natural treatments need to be started after consultation and can help improve the lung capacity dramatically dilating the airways.
The health condition, immunity and age all contribute to the symptoms of lung infection. The symptoms caused by a virus, fungus or bacteria and other pathogens are similar but it’s the severity of the infection and time taken to recover that differs from person to person.
The symptoms can be detected by a stethoscope, chest X ray, CT scan, spirometry, pulse oximetry, mucus swab, throat swab, blood culture, Complete blood count, or MRI.
During a lung infection the throat feels soothed with lots of water, hot tea with ginger honey, and loads of rest, but it is better to ask your physician for his advice because that is what will help you the most.
Do not neglect your lung infection specially if the cough worsens or there is any alteration noticed in the existing cough. Check out for acute pain in the back, chest or shoulder region that becomes worse with deep breathing or coughing. Get your detailed checkups done. Shortness of breath for long periods of time on a regular basis need to be checked out for lung cancer, schedule an appointment with the specialist and start the Ayurvedic treatment for lungs cancer.
