Background: Apeenasa is one of the nasagata rogas according to Ayurvedic classics that be considered as the paranasal sinusitis as per the conventional medicine. Peenasa and apeenasa are used based on the stages and the types of paranasal sinusitis.
Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of nasya karma and vyoshadi vati in shirashoola, gandhagnananasha and shwasagurguratha of patients suffering from apeenasa.
Design: This was a randomized controlled study with thirty patients divided into three groups, 10 in each. In Group A, Nasya karma was given once a day for 7 days and in Group B, Vyoshadi vati was given twice a day for 7 days and in Group C, Nasya karma and Vyoshadi vati was given in combination for 7 days.
Results: Statistically significant results were seen in reduction of shirashoola and shwasagurguratha and improvement in gandhagnananasha of patients suffering from apeenasa with p<0.001.
Conclusions: Group C (Nasya karma with vyoshadi vati) showed statistically significant results compared to Group A (nasya karma) and Group C (Vyoshadi vati) in reduction of shirashoola and shwasagurguratha and improvement in gandhagnananasha of patients suffering from apeenasa.
