Abstract

ROLE OF AYURVEDIC TREATMENT IN DUSTA PRATISHYAYA (CHRONIC RHINOSINUSITIS) – A CASE STUDY

Dr. Saroj Ahuja* and Dr. Shamsa Fiaz

ABSTRACT

Chronic Sinusitis is one of the more prevalent chronic illnesses in India. It is an inflammatory process that involves the paranasal sinuses and persist for 12 weeks or longer. The literature has supported that chronic sinusitis is almost always accompanied by concurrent nasal airway inflammation and is often preceded by rhinitis symptoms: thus the chronic rhinosinusitis has evolved to more accurately describe this condition. The sinus most commonly involved is Maxillary Sinus followed in turn by ethmoid, frontal and sphenoid. Very often more than one sinus is involved (Multisinusitis). Sometimes all the sinuses are involved resulting in Pansinusitis. Sinusitis may be open or closed depending on whether the inflammatory products of sinus cavity can drain freely into the nasal cavity through natural ostia or not. A closed sinusitis causes more severe symptoms and is also likely to cause complications. Aims and Objectives: The aim of the study was to see the effect of Ayurvedic procedure in the management of Chronic Sinusitis (Dushta Pratishyaya). Methodology: In present case report, 23 year old patient presented with complaint of pain over cheeks and forehead since 5 months and nasal blockage and hyposmia since 1 year. Therefore the patient was treated with principles of Dushta Pratishyaya by Nasya and internal medications. Conclusion: There was significant improvement in all the complaints of patient after one month treatment.

Keywords: Dushta Pratishyaya, Sinusitis, hyposmia, Nasya.
