Keywords:Nasanaha, Deviated Nasal Septum, Anutaila, Jalaneti
Nasanaha is one of the sthanika roga of nasa documented in ancient classics of Ayurveda. The pradhana lakshana seen in nasanaha is avarodha that is ‘Nasal Obstruction’. In the present study nasanaha with special reference to Deviated Nasal Septum (DNS) which is an anatomical cause for nasal obstruction is undertaken .The principle treatment modalities adopted in conventional system of medicine includes the use of decongestant nasal drops, analgesics, antihistamines, intranasal steroids and surgical treatment. These medicaments though have effective symptomatic relief, unfortunately have many adverse effects and are temporarily beneficial and also there may be recurrence of symptoms even after surgery. Owing to the above adverse effect in modern medicine, there is always been sincere demand and search for effective, simple, most economical, non- operative mode of management. So the present study was taken up to evaluate the efficacy of Anutaila nasya and Jalaneti in nasanaha. A total of 30 patients having nasanaha were selected and randomly divided into 2 groups with 15 patients each. Group A was treated with Anutaila nasya and Group B was treated with Jalaneti. Subjective parameters were considered and were suitably graded to assess the results based on the clinical observations and statistical tests were applied to analyse the results. In the present study it was observed that the percentage of success of Group A was 80.32% and that of Group B was 57.95%. Group A showed better results compared to Group B.
