Ancient science, Ayurveda evolved in India with the holistic approach towards many ailments and their treatment. Ayurveda believes, to land up in a disease Pragnaparadha (mistakes done with consciousness) is one of the major cause. Ayurveda deals with all the Urdva jatrugata rogas (diseases above shoulder) with a special Branch of medicine called Shalakya Tantra. Ayurveda says the sthana (place) of Khapha (one of the dosha) is above the shoulder. Kapha dosha is predominanat in early ages of life ie., Childhood.Hence most of the ENT disease occurs in this age group. Most common being Tonsillitis (Tundikeri) , Adenitis, Rhinitis (prathishyaya), Nasal Polyp (nasa arshas) Otitis media (Krimi Karma / Karna shula), Eustachian Catarrh, Dental caries.
Cold, cough, Headache, Heaviness of the forehead and eyes, Sneezing, Watering eyes, itchy nose and eyes, Short breath, Nose Block, Snoring, Ear pain, Pus discharge from nose or ear, Bad breath, Dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing), Red eyes, Nose Bleeding, Tinnitus ( unusual sounds heard) Dryness of mouth, teeth sensitive to hot / cold food,are the most common symptoms of ENT disorders. Hence diagnosing the disease is difficult and but it is very critical and important. Negligence of a symptom will lead to Dreadful disease.
For most of the ENT diseases, Shodhana Chikitsa (panchakarma) is must. One of the Panchakarma (5 set of treatment) is NASYA Karma Ie.., installation of the medicated oil into the nostrils in drops. This brings out the doshas from the shiras (head and face) clears the shrothas (channels / capillaries), helps in good absorption of the medication given in later stages of the treatment. This procedure is also beneficial in NASA ROGAS (diseases of nose). Improves the sense of smell, cures sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, headache, snoring. By this treatment use of inhalers can also be stopped.
Tonsilitis / Adenoids: Tonsillitis is an inflammatory condition of the tonsils caused by bacterial infection. The tonsils – part of the body’s lymphatic system – are situated at the back of the throat. These two balls of tissue help in preventing infection and disease. However, at times, these tonsils get inflamed due to bacterial or viral infection, causing Tonsillitis. This disease is quite common in children and is often accompanied by fever. The most common cause of tonsillitis is bacterial or viral infection. This infection is primarily caused due to excessive intake of fried, greasy foods, chocolates, sweets, spices, white flour products, cold and frozen foods. In Ayurveda, tonsillitis is known as Galaayu, which is mainly caused by poor digestion and accumulation of toxins in the body. Therefore, Ayurvedic treatment aims at treating the entire immune system, aiming to eliminate the risk for long term. Ayurvedic herbs are administered to eliminate inflammation and infection, along with customized diet and lifestyle advice that is based on the patient’s body constitution and medical history.
Sinusitis: Sinusitis is the condition characterized by the inflammation of tissues around the sinuses. Sinuses are the air-filled spaces behind the nasal bone, forehead, cheeks and eyes. When these openings are blocked, they become prone to infections. The condition can be triggered by factors including common cold, pollen allergies. The symptoms of acute sinusitis include facial muscle pain, stuffiness of the nose, running nose, loss of smell, congestion, etc. Ayurveda regards the cause of sinus infections to be an imbalance of PranaVata, a subtype of Vata which governs the brain and head and Shleshaka Kapha which governs moisture and lubrication balance. Imbalances of these Dosha scan block the sinus channels which leads to the imbalance of Pitta that causes sinus inflammation. Ayurvedic treatment of sinusitis involves liquefying and expelling aggravated body energies with the use of certain Ayurvedic herbs and diet as well as nasal therapies and applications. The Panchakarma treatment of Nasya is quite effective in dealing with sinusitis.
