About Nasya Treatment
Nasya treatment refers to an Ayurvedic therapy that includes the instillation of herbal oils, juices, or powders through the nasal route. It works specifically on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat. Nasya is one of the five Panchakarma therapies. It is especially desirable for diseases of parts above the base of the neck; nasal passage being the gateway of the head.
Nasya, an integral practice within Ayurveda, centers on the administration of herbal preparations into the nasal passages. This intricate therapy delves into the realm of the head and neck, seeking to purify, nourish, and rejuvenate this vital region. By fostering equilibrium and prana flow, Nasya is thought to address a spectrum of concerns—from sinus congestion and headaches to allergies and mental clarity. In this holistic approach, the nasal passages become a gateway to harmonizing the doshas and nurturing overall wellness.
Procedure of Nasya Treatment
The medicaments administered through the nostrils pervade into the nervous and venous systems present in and around the nostrils. Then they evacuate the morbidity present or distributed in nearby areas. Thus it relieves the blockage of the channels and the diseases are cured effectively.
The procedure of Nasya can be classified under three divisions:
1. Poorvakarma or pre-purificatory measures
Includes facial oil massage or application of steam to face, forehead, head, ears, and neck. This helps to loosen the adhesive Doshas.
2. Pradhanakarma or main procedure of Nasya
This is the main step of Nasya and includes the instillation of lukewarm medication in both nostrils, alternately, with the help of a proper instrument like a dropper. The sole, shoulder, neck, ear, and palm are gently massaged after the administration of the drug
3. Paschatkarma or post-therapeutic measures
In this procedure patient's mouth is cleaned by giving lukewarm water to gargle and then medicated smoke is given for inhalation.
