Dr. Nidhi Puniya*, Prof. (Dr.) Girish Narain Rai, Dr. Suranyashu Sharma, Dr. Gauri Shankar Yadav

Abstract

In Ayurveda, Ayu is defined as the conjunction of body, soul, mind, and senses. Each has been given due importance in the maintenance of health, prevention, and cure of disease. The importance of Ayurveda in the global scenario is because of its holistic approach toward a positive lifestyle. Pratishyaya is always been a challenging disease in the context of Nasagata Roga which can be deciphered from the importance it has been given in Samhitas. A separate chapter has been attributed to this disease in Uttartantra of Sushruta Samhita after explaining Nasagata Roga and its management. Acharya Sushruta has also described the Nasa roga in a very systematic manner. In the Uttara tantram, Sushruta recites an elaborated classification of nose disease complete with signs, symptoms, prognosis, and medically surgical interventions. Pratishyaya is well explained in all ayurvedic classics, in a modern perspective it is considered Chronic Rhinosinusitis. Chronic Rhino-sinusitis is a sequel of acute infection of nasal sinuses and is characterized by pooling of secretions in Para-nasal sinuses. In this article, we are intended to make a correlation between pratishyaya with a modern perspective to have a clearer view of the pratishyaya. For which the basic materials have been collected from the ayurvedic classics with the available commentaries, as well as textbooks of contemporary modern medical science have been referred for a better understanding of the concept and its comparison with contemporary science.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Chronic Rhino-sinusitis, Nasagata Roga, Dushta pratishyaya.
