Nasyam therapy is an Ayurvedic therapy that includes the installation of herbal oils, powers, or juices through the nasal route. This treatment is best for treating disorders of the nose, ear, and throat. With this, Nasya Therapy is among the five Panchakarma therapies and is suitable for diseases that are caused above the base of the neck, nasal passage, etc. As per Ayurveda, the delicate skin of the nasal passage and Eustachian tubes of the ears requires lubrication to stay balanced, healthy, and protected in cold seasons. Earlier, salt water was used for the neti to flush sinuses. Salt quickly dries the skin and dehydrates the nasal mucosa and due to this, neti therapy was not a complete solution for sinuses. On the other hand, Nasya Therapy provides a complete solution and is classified under three headings.
