Keeping Your Respiratory System Healthy is Easy, Just Follow These Steps

Deaths caused by lungs cancer is on the rise. Other than smoking cigarettes, use of cooking coal, air pollution in cities, asbestos, construction work and radon gas are all causes of cancer, bronchitis and other serious respiratory disorders. Here are 5 simple Ayurvedic tips to keep your respiratory system healthy.

Kavala (oil pulling):

Kavala or Gandusha is a process of gargling with oil. Usually, sesame oil is used for the process. This cleanses the throat of phlegm, clears the sinuses and reduces risk of allergic reaction in the respiratory system. Take a little sip of any edible oil, sesame or sunflower, and swish around your mouth for a few minutes and spit out. Repeat this process for a few times every morning after brushing your teeth.

Apply Nasya Oil:

Apply Nasya oil in both nostrils help in keeping the inner lining of your nose healthy and enhances its capacity to prevent pollutants from entering the nose. Take a few drops of herbal Nasya oil in a dropper and drip gently inside your nostril.

Take a spoon of Chyawanprasha:

Chyawanprasha is an Ayurvedic jam which contains multiple herbs mixed together with the aim of safeguarding the respiratory system against diseases by toning the mucous membranes in the nose and throat. It also improves your overall immunity.

Vasp Swedana (inhaling steam):

Mucosal secretions produced in the nose and throat expel pollutants, smoke and dirt particles that are inhaled on a daily basis. Vasp Swedana is an Ayurvedic process that keeps the mucosal layer healthy. You can do the process at home by putting a few drops of mint or eucalyptus oil in a large bowl of hot water and inhaling the steam.


Pranayama helps to increase the capacity of the lungs and boosts your immunity to fight lung diseases. Practising Kapalbhati relieves congestion, shortness of breath and clears mucus in the air passage. Ujjayi, Shitali and Anulom Vilom are some other Pranayama techniques that will keep your lungs healthy.
