Nasya Therapy (Nasal Medication)
Nasya (Nasal Drops Or Nasal Medication)
That procedure by which medicines are introduced into the head by the nasal passages is called Nasya.
Nashya is very important treatment in Ayurveda. It comes under the Panchkarma treatment.
In Pancha Karma Nasya is also called Shirovirechana – shiro (head) + virechana (purgation).
Nasya also known as head, neck and sinus therapy
Mechanism of Nasya karma
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 Head.
Sringataka marma is a composite structure consisting of four siras (arteries) in connection with four sense organs: Nose, Ear, Eye and Tongue.
The composite structure formed by the union of these four arteries is called sringata.
As per the ayurveda literature 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 srotasas (channels) and if there is any disturbance in the integrity of the srotasas, it will result in the development of disease.
Action of drugs used in Nasya karma
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 Nasyadravya (the medicine used to give nasya)
Impulses are transmitted to the central nervous system. This results in better circulation and nourishment of the organs and the diseases will subside
