Keywords:Immunity, Kaumarbhritya, Mustakadi Avaleha, Nasaroga, Shiro roga, Rhinitis
Background: In Ayurveda, Pratishyaya (~Recurrent Rhinitis) is described in Shiro-roga (Head disease).Pratishyaya (~Recurrent Rhinitis) is a common disease of childhood and it is well known for its recurrence. Immature Dhatu (tissues) state in children makes them more susceptible to recurrent infections. Clinical features of Pratishyaya (~Recurrent Rhinitis) can be correlated with rhinitis. Aim & Objective: To study the effect of vachadi avaleha and mustakadi avaleha in management of pratishyaya (~recurrent rhinitis). To study comparative efficacy of vachadi avaleha and mustakadi avaleha in management of pratishyaya(~recurrent rhinitis). Material & Method: Study comprises total 60 patients of Pratishyaya (~recurrent rhinitis) randomly divided into two equal groups. Group A (Experimental group) was treated with Vachadi avaleha two times a day after meal with honey and Group B (Control group) was treated with Mustakadi Avaleha administered two times a day after meal for 90 days. Patients were assessed for subjective parameters like rhinorrhoea, sneezing, nasal congestion, recurrence of rhinitis, duration of rhinitis per episode. Patients were assessed on every 30th day till completion of study period. Result- The effect of Mustakadi Avaleha (Group B) is significant at p<0.05 for subjective criteria such as nasastrava (rhinorrhoea), kshavathu (sneezing), and nasavarodha (nasal congestion) of pratishyaya (~Recurrent Rhinitis). Conclusion: Vachadi Avaleha is not as significant as Mustakadi avaleha in Pratishyaya (~Recurrent Rhinitis).
