Other Panchakarma Treatments

Nasyam(Nasal medication) is one of the five Panchakarma therapies in Ayurveda. It’s a very effective Ayurvedic treatment used to eliminate doshas in the head region and also for diseases in parts above the base of the neck with the nasal passage being the gateway of the head. The medicine is in the form of medicated herbal oils, herbal juices, ghee or powders which is administered through the nasal route.

Nasyam Treatment: What is The Procedure?

The procedure of Nasya can be classified under three headings,
1. Poorvakarma or pre purificatory measures
This includes facial oil massage or application of steam to face, forehead, head, ears, and neck. This helps to loosen the adhesive doshas.
2. Pradhanakarma or main procedure of Nasya
This is the main step of Nasyam and includes installation of lukewarm medicine in both the nostrils, alternately, with the help of conch or dropper. The sole, shoulder, neck, ear and palm are gently massaged after the administration of the medicine.
3. Paschatkarma or post-therapeutic measures
In this procedure, patients are given lukewarm water to gargle. Then Dhoomapana(medicated smoke), if indicated for the ailment, is given for inhalation.

How Does Nasya Treatment Work?

The medications administered through the nostrils pervade into the nervous (brain) and venous system (blood circulation) present in and around the nostrils. Then they evacuated the morbidity present or distributed in the nearby area. Thus it relieves the blockage of the channels and the diseases are cured effectively. Medicated oils/ juices/powders stimulate the vital centers of the brain to overcome specific diseases. Nasya treatment does not cause any serious side effects when performed by an experienced therapist.

What Our Patients Say About Us?


Nithya AS

I found to have diabetes just 3 months back. My sugar was around 200+ .I didn’t want to go to any alloathic doctor as they will ask to take medicine life long. I saw Dr Aravind in youtube and was impressed by his speech. I went to him in Jan and he gave me Ayurvedic medicines and diet chart for diabetes reversal. It’s been 3 months now and now all medicines are stopped and as he promised my sugar levels are 105 fasting and 93 post prandial. I was shocked to see the results. All diabetes patients can go to him blindly. Just listen to his instructions. Your diabetes will be reversed.

Myself and my husband tested positive last month, and we came to know about ayurshi ayurveda thru our family member, and we have started taking ayurveda medicines from day one, within 7 days started feeling back to normal, Special thanks to Dr Arvind bharadwaj and team for providing constant support over phone for any kind of clarifications and medicines delivery also on time. Now we both completely recovered. We need to follow strict diet as prescribed by doctor along with medicines and belief.
