Environmental toxicant induces respiratory disease has been increased day by day in all over world including India. The toxicant emitted from air pollution has been affected to human being and causes health hazards. The air pollutant like DDT, TCDD, Atrazine, Benzoperylene and Carbofuran causes severe consequences of health hazards in human beings including chronic bronchitis, emphysema. Ayurveda is an ancient medical science and mentioned air pollutant like raja- dhooma as causative factors of respiratory disease including allergic bronchitis (shawas), allergic rhinitis (Pratishyaya), cough (kasa) and hiccough (hikka). The prevention and management of disease is the basic principle of Ayurveda for any disease. Ayurveda suggested the nidan parivarjan for the prevention of disease. The prevention of environmental toxicant can be achieved by social preventative methods like Containment, replacement, Dilution, Legislation, International action, balcony gardens and personal preventative methods like air filter mask. The induced emesis should be done by using Lagenaria siceraria to excrete out the vitiated kapha from the body. After completion of sansarjan karma sitopalaadi, yastimadhu, tankan bhasma should be given along with laxmi vilas rasa and shwas kuthar rasa in allergic bronchitis and allergic rhinitis respectively. Chitrak haritaki and vasa aveleha should be given along with haridra khsirpaka to calm down the srotodusti of pranvaha srotas. Nasya therapy should be given by shadbindu oil. Thus social and personal preventive methods, induced emesis, either laxmivilas rasa or shwaskuthar rasa, chitrak haritaki avaleha , vasa avaleha and nasya therapy will be helpful to prevent and cure of environmental toxicant induces respiratory disease.
