Nasya Karma It is one of the panchakarmas mentioned in Ayurveda. It is a process by which drug is administered through the nostrils. If 'Nasyakarma' is done properly and regularly it will keep the person's eye, nose and ear unimpaired. It also prevents the early graying of hair and beard. Nasyakarma will prevent the falling of hair. It will ensure growth of hair and alleviate diseases like cervical spondilitis, headache, facial paralysis, hemiplegia, diseases of nose, frozen shoulder, hemi crania, coryza, sinusitis, mental disorders parkinsonism and skin complaints. Nasyakarma will enhance the activity of sense organs and prevent the diseases of head (urdhwanga). It will prevent the early aging process. Purvakarma (Pre-purification Measures) Prior to nasya karma, sneha and sweda should be done to the patients Face, Forehead, Head, Ears and Neck. This prior snehana (oleation) and swedana (sudation or sweating) will help to loosen the adhesive doshas, thereby facilitating the subsequent elimination. Pradhan karma (Main Procedure of Nasyakarma) After the Purvakarma the patient is asked to lie down in a bed with his hand and legs kept straight. His head is maintained at a lower position by keeping the pillow below the neck. This position will facilitate the direct passage of the drug. Placing the medicine above hot water gently warms it and then it is made to flow in to one nostril, while the other is kept closed the same process is carried out in the other nostril also. For the administration of the drug a pichu (Cotton swab) or nadi(tube) may be used (dropper can be used). The sole, shoulder, neck, ear and palm are gently massaged after the administration of the drug. He must pit out all the impurities and medicine that reach his mouth. The spitting is repeatedly carried out turning to both sides while the patient is lying. Swedakarma (sudation) should be repeated after the nasya treatment. The process of nasya can be repeated twice or thrice if necessary. This process should be repeated for 7 days. Mechanism of Nasyakarma The nasya dravya (medicine) acts by reaching 'Sringataka marma' (a main vital point situated on the surface of the brain corresponding to the nerve centres, which consisting of nerve cells and fibres responsible for the function of speech-Broca's Centre, vision, hearing, taste and smell). From where it spreads into various strotasas (vessels and nerves) and brings out vitiated doshas from the bread. Sringataka is a composite structure consisting of four siras (arteries) in connection with four sense organs-viz, nose, ear, eye and tongue. The composite structure formed by the union of these four arteries is called sringata. As per the ayurveda school of thought for the evolution of a disease the vitiated doshas should be brought to the site from its original seat. This movement will be made through the srotasa (channels) and if there is any disturbance in the integrity of the srotasas it will result in the development of disease. With regards to the Urdhwangarogas (diseases of head) there should be some disturbance in the normal functions of urdwanga srotasas (arteries, veins, nerves in the head). Sringadaka are the most important group of srotasas in the urdhwanga (head) and drugs acting through these srotasas are certain to bring about srotosuddhi (cleaning) in urdhwanga. Action of drugs used in Nasyakarma * By general blood circulation, after absorption through mucous membrane. * Direct pooling into venous sinuses of brain via, inferior ophthalmic veins. * Absorption directly into the cerebrospinal fluid. Many nerve endings which are arranged in the peripheral surface of mucous membrance, olfactory, trigeminal etc will be stimulated by Nasyadravy (the medicine used to give nasya) and impulses are transmitted to the central nervous system. This results in better circulation and nourishment of the organs and the diseases will subside. Most of the drugs described for nasya therapy have got katu (bitter), ushna (hot) and theekshna (sharpness ) properties. These drugs produce draveekaranam (liquifaction) and chhedanam(expulsion) of vitiated doshas. The kashaya rasa (astringent taste) drugs produce astringent effect while madhura rasa (sweat) drugs produce cooling and nourishing effect. In conclusion it may be stated that The nose is the doorway to the brain and it is also the doorway to consciousness. Prana or life energy enters the body through breath taken in through the nose. Nasal administration of medication helps to correct the disorders of prana affecting the higher cerebral, sensory and motor functions.the brief study of the mechanism of nasya can be summed up in a single statement made in the ayurvedic classics, "Nasahi Shirasodwaram" ie., nose is a pharmacological passage into the head. Types of Nasya There are six main types of nasya, as listed below. 1. Pradhamana (virechan) Nasya (cleansing nasya) uses dry powders (rather than oils) that are blown into the nose with a tube. Pradhamana nasya is mainly used for kapha types of diseases involving headaches, heaviness in the head, cold, nasal congestion, sticky eyes, hoarseness of voice due to sticky kapha, sinusitis, cervical lymph adenitis, tumors, worms, some skin diseases, epilepsy, drowsiness, Parkinsonism, inflammation of the nasal mucosa, attachment, greed and lust. Traditionally, powders such as brahmi are used. 2. Bruhana Nasya (nutrition nasya) uses ghee, oils, salt, shatavari ghee, ashwagandha ghee and medicated milk and is used mainly for vata disorders. It is said to benefit conditions resulting from vata imbalances such as vata-type headaches, migraine headache, dryness of voice, dry nose, nervousness, anxiety, fear, dizziness, emptiness, negativity, heaviness of eyelids, bursitis, stiffness in the neck, dry sinuses and loss of sense of smell. 3. Shaman Nasya (sedative nasya) is used according to which dosha is aggravated but mainly for pitta-type disorders such as thinning of hair, conjunctivitis and ringing in the ears. Generally certain herbal medicated decoctions, teas and medicated oils are used. 4. Navana Nasya (decoction nasya) is used in vata-pitta or kapha-pitta disorders and is made from decoctions and oils together. 5. Marshya Nasya (ghee or oil nasya) 6. Pratimarshya (daily oil nasya) is performed by dipping the clean little finger in the ghee or oil and inserting into each nostril, lubricating the nasal passage with gentle massage as described above. This helps to open deep tissues and can be done every day and at any time to release stress. Indications for Nasyakarma: Trigeminal Neuralgia Bel's Palsy To improves memory & eye sight Insomnia Elimination of excess Mucus Hyper pigmentation in the face Pre-mature graying of hair To brings clarity to voice Headaches of various origin Hemiplegia Loss of smell and taste Frozen Shoulder Migraine Stiffness of the neck Nasal Allergies Nasal Polyp Neurological dysfunctions Sinusitis To relive stress and emotional imbalances stiffness in the neck & shoulders dryness of the nose hoarseness of voice convulsions Contra-Indications for Nasya: Nasal medication should not be administered after a bath, food, sex, drinking alcohol, during pregnancy or menstruation. It should not be used below 7 years or over 80 years of age Substances Used in Nasya: brahmi, ginger, ghee, oils, decoctions, Piper longum, black pepper, curry pepper, rose, jasmine, henna etc. Dr. Hemant AdhikariDr. Hemant Adhikari23 Likes17 Answers

A CASE OF SHINGLES/HERPES ZOSTER A patient named PS, 85 YEAR/M presented with redness, inflammation and numbness on the left side of his trunk. As he is an elderly patient, i couldn't meet him in person so diagnosed him on the basis of the photographes sent to me by his family and signs & symptoms narrated by them. DIANOSIS OF THE CASES SHINGLES/HERPES ZOSTER Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Even after the chickenpox infection is over, the virus may live in your nervous system for years before reactivating as shingles. Shingles may also be referred to as herpes zoster. This type of viral infection is characterized by a red skin rash that can cause pain and burning. Shingles usually appears as a stripe of blisters on one side of the body, typically on the torso, neck, or face. SYMPTOMS The first symptoms of shingles are usually pain and burning. The pain is usually on one side of the body and occurs in small patches. A red rash typically follows. Rash characteristics include: red patches fluid-filled blisters that break easily a rash that wraps around from the spine to the torso a rash on the face and ears itching Some people experience symptoms beyond pain and rash with shingles. These symptoms may include: a fever chills a headache fatigue muscle weakness COMPLICATIONS loss of eye sight or hearing on the affected side. Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. Brain Damage. PEOPLE AT RISK Shingles can occur in anyone who has had chickenpox. However, certain factors put people at risk for developing shingles. Risk factors include: being 60 or older having diseases that weaken the immune system, such as HIV, AIDS, or cancer having had chemotherapy or radiation treatment taking drugs that weaken the immune system, such as steroids or medications given after an organ transplant. Shingles is particularly prevalent in older adults and is most common in those who are between 60 and 80 years old. TREATMENT I explained all the symptoms and risk factors and management plan to the family members prior to the prescription and even advised them that they might require strong pain killers and an anti viral course by the general physician if the complications occur. They had a full faith in Homoeopathy. I prescribed homoeopathic remedy VARIOLINUM on 19/8/2016. To my utmost surprise, this has been the MOST successful and beautifully managed case I have ever treated solely by homoeopathy. Throughout the treatment, the patient DIDN'T develope any of the extremely painful symptoms of the herpes. He exhibited all the stages of the disease but each stage was without the extreme burning, excrusiating pains, numbness and other symtoms. He didn't even develope any symptoms of post herpetic neuralgia/5th stage. The patient was absolutely fine on 9/9/2016. I am thankful to the patient and his family for showing trust in Homoeopathy and in me and for keeping me updated with these pictures. These pictures are arranged stage wise. From stage 1 to stage 5 of herpes.Dr. Preeti Gupta8 Likes9 Answers
