Although much progress has been made in our understanding of Bronchial Asthma over the past decades, asthma remains frequently encountered condition challenging to physicians. The burden of this disease to the government’s healthcare systems, families and patients is increasing worldwide. The etiology of asthma is complex and multi factorial which involves the interaction between genetic factors and environmental stimuli.
Three Studies with Unani drug combinations were taken to compare their efficacy in the management of this disorder. Though all the drug combinations were proven to be effective individually but their comparative study showed the better choice to improve the clinical parameters of bronchial asthma was the Gul-e- Zoofa, Berg-e-Aroosa & Aslus-Soos.
