Nasya – the tamer of the nasal tracks
Can you believe that the nose is the starting point of some paramount pathways? True, the nasal orifice to be precise, is the entrance to the strong sense organs located in the head- the eyes, ears, nose, and throat; the parts that man vision, hearing, gustation, and voice production. Whatever goes in through the nostrils fills the whole head including the sinuses, throat, and blood vessels. This is the basis of Nasya, the Ayurvedic panchakarma procedure of administering nasal drops. Ayurveda considers Nasya as a complete solution for the diseases above the neck.
Nasal drops can be in the form of oils, decoctions, or herbal extracts, and have to be selected according to the doshik levels and the strength of the person. It can be employed in both preventive and curative aspects- which means you can do it regularly without fearing any side effects.
