Nasal cleaning: Ayurvedic Therapy to Detoxify the Head
Nasya is one of the 5 panchakarma (Ayurvedic detoxification therapies) techniques. It is the application of herbal substances into the nose. The nose is the gateway into the head, the sinuses, and deeper into the lungs. The most common Nasya treatment includes the application of Ghee or Oil, sometimes with additional powdered herbs.
When Nasya is performed correctly it enhances mental and sensory acuity, promotes mental clarity and emotional happiness, clears the nose and sinuses of obstruction, promotes cleansing and flow of lymphatic fluid, bestows a clear voice, promotes lightness of the body, soothes dryness in the nose, and eliminates the symptoms of disease.
