Respiration is a vital and unique process in our daily lifestyle. Eosinophilia consists of two words “eosino” and “philia” in which eosin is the rose-colored stain and “philos” means fond of.
As Per Ayurveda Aspect
According to the Ayurvedic system of medicine, there is a vitiation of Vata and Kapha dosha in the body that result in the imbalance of rasa dhatu (body tissue) along with the involvement of pranavaha srotas (respiratory system) and annavaha srotas (digestive system) in the body. So, according to the symptoms, this disease can be correlated with vataja Kasa that can be with or without asthma.
