Respiratory disease is the leading global cause of disability and death.

Respiratory health: An Ayurvedic perspective

Respiratory disease affects one in five people and is the third largest cause of death in England. (1)

Hospital admissions for lung disease have risen over the past seven years at three times the rate of all admissions generally. (1)

Most hospital respiratory admissions are emergencies which double during the winter months. (1)

Many herbs are suitable for self-care. However if a health condition does not resolve with home remedies we recommend using the information in Herbal Reality along with your health advisors, especially herbal practitioners from the professional associations listed in our Resources page (‘If you want to find a herbalist”). When buying any herbal products, you should choose responsible manufacturers with independently assured quality standards and sustainability practices. Check the label carefully for the appropriate safety and sustainability information.
