Abstract

Panchakarma plays an important role in Ayurveda, which does the function of cleansing the body from Doshas. Among them, Nasya is mainly indicated for Urdhwajatrugata Vikaras, in which Doshas are eliminated by means of the nearest possible opening, the nose. Netra, being considered as the important Indriya among others, should be protected with utmost care. Considering Ama-Nirama concept of Netra, treatment of Netra Roga is decided in which Sthanika Dosha Shodhana is very essential. For that, Nasya Karma is considered as an option among other Shodhana Karmas. A proper Shodhana at proper stage of a disease can avoid unnecessary surgeries even. Benefits of Nasya Karma in Netra Rogas are already proved through various previous studies.

This article is an attempt to conceptually analyze the role of Nasya Karma in Netra Rogas through various literature sources of Ayurveda and contemporary science.
