Respected Vaidyas, An important aspect of "Dinacharya" I.e. PRATIMARSHA NASYAM is very useful for all of us to keep away from " Supraclavicular diseases" ( URDHAJATRU GATA VIKARAS ). Let us discuss about its practical aspects briefly. 1. It is one type of Snehan Nasya ( use of Chatu Sneha I.e. Ghrita, Tailam, Vasa, Majja ) 2. The dose of Sneha is minimal I.e. 2 drops in each Nostril. ( Dwi Vinduka - A.H. Su 20 / 29 ) 3. It can be used daily that's why naming is as such I.e. PRATI - Daily. 4. Kala ( Time of Administration ) ( A.H. Su 20/ 28 - 29 ) 15 times are described- Nisha Anta - Early morning ( Brahma Muhurta ) Aha Anta - End of Day ( Evening ) Bhukta - After taking food Banta -- After Vamana Karma Aha Swapna ( Divaswapna ) - After day sleep Adhwa - After long walking Shrama - After doing hard physical or mental work Retasam - After Copulation Shirobhyanga - After head massaage .Gandusha - After Oil pulling treatments in mouth Prasrava - After Urination Anjana - After application. of Kajjala ( Collyrium) Varchasam - After defecation of stool Danta Kasthasya - After Danta Dhabana ( Brushing ) Hasa Sya - After Laugh 5.

N.B. - A huge no. of patient's with eye sight problems came near to us, so we can prescribe them with Pratimarsha Nasya by Anu Tailam during the Times described in point - C above. 6.

Amongst 4 types of Sneha dravyas( Oil, Ghee, Fat, Marrow ), Oil ( Tailam ) is the most preferable due to more actions over Kapha Dosha ( as " Shirasah Shlesma Dhama " ) 9. Best medicated Oil used for Nasyam - ANU TAILAM 10. Pratimarsha Nasyam is the most safest form of Nasya Therapy and continued for life long. Hope , this article is useful for all and the procedure is practised and advised by all due to numerous benefits.



OK.I' all try..As I'm only having OP now,prathimarsha is usually prescribed.. in needed cases..But even then it is found to b very useful.. Anuthaila is usually prescribed as sirashodhana drug...We can adopt dhanwantharam 101 avarthy in kevalavathika cases and ksheerabala 101 avarthy is preferred in vatapitta vyadhis The exact dosage for prathimarsha is usually 2 drops on both nostrils but some variants are also heard .. I usually prefer early morning just after brushing for kaphotklishta cases.For vata predominant cases evening time is preferred.
Nice Experience Ma'am.
Nicely elaborated Sir, it may be useful even in khalitya and palitya also, in dental caries, increasing refractive error. There may be different medicines used for nasya for different diseases e.g. yastimadhu taila or shatavari ghrut for Hairfall. I think one more article for medicine and their indications regarding nasya needed.
Obviously Sir accepting your invitation for another article regarding Different Nasya medicines and their indications. I have emphasized here what classics say..and It's importance in Dinacharya @Dr. Abhijeet Raut Sir.

@Dr.A.K.Srivastava. Nice and informative post.
Prathimarsha is a noteworthy topic and of course very trustworthy in clinical aspect.Its easy application and effective nature makes it popular like nithyabhyanga.Further its indications and ' Ajanmamarana sastha' team makes it quite effective tool too. In my personal experience it is quite effective in dushtapratisyaya ,poothinasya, kaphaja sirashoola,chronic sinusitis etc.Further in apabahuka, also prathimarsa nasya is found to b very effective. For shodhana purpose anuthailam,is mostly used..We can change the drug according to our yukthy.
It will be really helpful if you share your clinical experience of nasya in different vyadhi (oil or ghrut, administration time, indications),Thanks.

ऊधर्रवगत रोगों में नस्य चिकित्सा दृवारा योगों का सुन्दर चिकित्सा वरणन है। सारा जीवन नस्य दव्वारा ही प्राण शक्ति ( आक्सिजन ) ग्रहण की जाती है।ईशवर कि रचना देखें तो शुधि के लिऐ नाक में बालों की ऊत्पती की है। फिर भी दोष काल से बनी व्याधि के लिऐ वरणीत योग ही समर्मथ है।शेयर करने का अति धन्यवाद @डा.निरंजन राम जी।
