Preventing Respiratory Illness & Breathing Problems This Diwali

Diwali, the festival of lights will soon be upon us. It is a time for joyous celebration, bonding with near and dear ones and lovely ideas to deck up the home. However, during Diwali, the level of air pollution in most cities reaches an all-time high, due to fireworks. The paints used when redoing the house also contain chemicals that can irritate the respiratory tract. This can cause a lot of breathing problems especially for those with asthma, allergies or other respiratory disorders. Here are a few natural tips to prevent respiratory illnesses this Diwali:

  1. Stay away from the house when it is being whitewashed as far as possible. Chemicals found in the household paints can bring on coughing, asthma attacks and other breathing problems. In addition, pregnant women should not be exposed to these chemicals as inhaling them can cause harm to both the mother and the child.
  2. Restrict the usage of crackers as far as possible – bombs, flower pots and wheels produce a lot of smoke with chemicals like potassium, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide which can set off wheezing or coughing, especially in those prone to allergic infections. If you must, light a few sparklers or coloured matches at the most.
  3. A weak immune system is more susceptible to respiratory problems. Take a natural preparation like Pankajakasthuri Breathe Eazy Cough Syrup or granules on a regular basis. This 100% herbal medication soothes your respiratory tract, and its unique formulation helps strengthen your immunity over time. This is a proven effective remedy to all kinds of breathing problems without any side effects. Buy here.
  4. A few natural ways to prevent coughing or respiratory illnesses are to avoid pouring very hot or cold water on your head. Take lots of Vitamin C and D in your diet and inhale hot steam whenever you feel like your nasal passages are blocked. Black pepper with ghee is an excellent remedy for both wet and dry cough, as is onion juice mixed with jiggery.
  5. There are some ways to avoid getting exposed to allergens – keep the house as clean as possible and avoid the accumulation of dust and dust mites. When you get your house cleaned for Diwali, ensure that you stay away during the process to avoid the clouds of dust. Moisture in the atmosphere on your room walls should also be avoided.
  6. It is better to stay indoors during the peak hours of Diwali to avoid fumes from crackers being burst by others in the vicinity. Invite friends and family over, prepare delicious food and enjoy lighting diyas and making a beautiful rangoli. Diwali can be a beautiful celebration even without bursting fireworks, and it is the best way to avoid health hazards.

These are some of the useful tips and natural ways to prevent respiratory illnesses this Diwali. We at Pankajakasthuri wish all our followers a Diwali that is bright, colourful, healthy and prosperous with a wonderful rest of the year to come.
