Ayurvedic For Allergy- Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Yoga & Diet


1.    What is an allergy?

When your immune system is highly sensitive, it tends to react to even foreign substances that are not harmful to the body. This reaction causes inflammation in the body that results in allergies. Ayurveda perceives allergy as a result of aggravated kapha dosha. The interference in the balance of the three doshas leading to allergy reactions is most commonly due to accumulated ama or toxins in the body. 

2.    What are the symptoms of allergy? 

In ayurvedic symptoms of allergy such as itchy and watery eyes, nose, irritated throat, skin rashes, etc are seen as a result of the imbalance of doshas and disturbed kapha dosha. While these symptoms are not fatal, other reactions such as inflammation leading to contraction of the esophagus and trachea, and other internal organs can be fatal. As Ayurveda is an age-old traditional medical science it looks into the root cause of the symptoms and works in a holistic manner to achieve well-being. Ayurvedic treatment for allergy connects the body, mind, and spirit. 

3.    What are the common types of allergy?

In Ayurveda, allergy is understood as discomfort caused due to the accumulation of ama or toxins in the internal system that leads to the imbalance of the three doshas, namely, vata, pita and kapha. The most common types of allergies include:
-    Food allergy
-    Skin allergy
-    Respiratory allergy 

4.    What is the ayurvedic treatment for skin allergy?

Ayurveda is a school of medical science that views health as a holistic factor and hence rather than focusing on the symptoms tries to treat the root cause. With the increasing environmental pollution, our skin is witnessing stress on a daily basis. But the primary cause of skin allergy is our impaired digestion. Skin reflects our gut health. Hence the ayurvedic treatment for skin allergy targets removing toxins from the digestive system. Herbal teas including neem, tulsi, aloe vera, etc are encouraged as a part of the diet along with multi-herbal kashaya. 

5.    What are the ayurvedic treatments for food allergy?

Food allergy is said to be caused due to the settled ama in the system that brings down the digestive fire. In case of food allergy even a very small portion of the allergy causing food can be fatal. The most common food items seen as allergens are nuts, seeds, shellfish etc.

Ayurvedic treatment for food allergy begins with detox to remove the accumulated toxins in the digestive system. Then it focuses on your diet to eliminate food combinations that are opposite to each other also known as virudh aharaa, for example, a combination of milk with acidic food, milk/curd with fish, etc.
