Ayurvedic Management of Dustapratishyaya


Akhilesh Kumar Verma


The nose, regarded as the gateway to the head according to Ayurveda, plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of structures above the neck. However, its exposure to environmental factors makes it susceptible to various infectious and allergic manifestations, with Rhinitis or Pratishyaya being a common concern in today's era of global warming, industrialization, and urbanization.Rhinitis, particularly Dustapratishyaya, is categorized by Ayurveda under Nasagata Rogas, comprising five types. If left untreated in its early stages and combined with improper Ahara Vihara (diet and lifestyle), Dustapratishyaya progresses to a more complicated phase known as Rhinosinusitis or chronic Dustapratishyaya. Such conditions, often characterized by repeated attacks and antibiotic resistance, pose significant challenges in management.
Ayurvedic treatment modalities, notably Nasya Karma and localized therapies, have shown efficacy in addressing Dustapratishyaya. A case study of a patient presenting with severe nasal discharge, sneezing, allergic manifestations, and sinusitis recurrent over six years, highlights the successful outcome of Ayurvedic intervention.
This abstract underscores the importance of Ayurvedic approaches in managing Dustapratishyaya and related conditions, offering promising insights into effective and holistic treatment strategies for Rhinosinusitis and allergic rhinitis.
