Abstract

AYURVEDIC PAIN MANAGEMENT BY NASYA KARMA W.S.R TO MIGRAINE

*Dr. Pallavi Tamgade and Dr. Kavita Daulatkar

ABSTRACT

Nasya which means medication through nostrils is one among the five procedures mentioned in Ayurveda for eradication of diseases. The word Nasya is derived from "Nasa" Dhatu, which conveys meaning of 'Gati'. Here the Gati is towards the internal structures mainly to head through nose. It is also called as Shirovirechana that implies removal of toxins from the head region. Unlike the other detoxification therapies which are focusing on the pacification of particular Doshas, this therapy is quite unique as it aims at pacification of any disorder in the head and neck region. Migraine headache is one of most sever type of headaches. Ayurveda treats the root cause of imbalances by addressing each patient’s unique constitution. Migraine is mostly a vata-pitta dosha, tridoshic condition but it also be triggered by any one of the individual doshas. Therefore, treatments focus on balancing vitiated doshas in nervous system by avoiding triggers and prescribing doshic-specific diet, stress management, panchakarma. In Ayurveda Nasya is effective karma to treat migraine. In nasya karma head is kept in lower position for retention of medicine in nasopharynx and providing sufficient time for local drug absorption. When the nasya dravya administered through the nasal cavity, the drug gets absorbed by passive process across the cell wall directly through the cell membrane. Then its carried through capillaries and veins which stimulates Olfactory nerve which connected with the higher centers of the brain like Limbic, Basic ganglia, Hypothalamus which inturn stimulates endocrine and nervous system. Impulse are transmited to the CNS this result in screping ofmorbid doshas of head ad extracts them out, normalized the tridoshas, diminishes the PAIN.

Keywords: Migraine, Nasya, Tridoshas.
