In Ayurvedic Medicine, Terminalia Chebula (Haritaki) is used to treat chronic cough, asthma, coryza, dyspnea and sore throat.
Terminalia Chebula (Haritaki) has mild effects for lung and airway disorders, such as chronic cough, asthma, dyspnea and coryza. Haritaki sends accumulated vata downwards and helps to clear wheezing, weak voice and asthma.
A mixture of belleric myroblan fruit, salt, long pepper and honey is a home remedy for the treatment of coughs.
Please note, haritaki is primarily used to help regulate bowel movements and treat digestive problems. It is sometimes used to treat coughs and airway disorders, but the effects are mild when compared to some other herbs.
