Nasya, the nasal therapy, is an Ayurvedic practice part of Dinacharya, the daily routines, connected to the earth element. This self care routine is great to pacify vata and kapha dosha. If you’re seeing symptoms of confusion, stress and anxiety, excessive thoughts or congestion, heaviness, allergies, phlegm and mucous, this practice will surely be helpful in both cases of vata and kapha imbalances. It keeps the nasal passages clear and brings grounding and clarity of mind. Overall, the Ayurvedic nasal therapy is used in removing excess doshas from the chest, nose, nasal passages and the head region.
Ayurveda recognizes the relation of the five elements (space, air, fire, water, earth) in us to the five senses. The five senses allow us to experience the world in our own unique way. The sense organs carry information to the mind as perceived to their best ability. By keeping the sense organs clean, pure, and healthy we can have better perception of life and allow rest to the mind. We overuse our eyes, ears, tongue, touch, nose through the many stimulants around us daily. The Ayurvedic daily routines called Dinacharya, give our senses a break, therefore allowing deep rest and detox on a daily basis, preventing disease and illness.
