Common cold-Seasonal cold-Rhinitis


Ayurveda advocates Nidana-Parivarjana (Staying away from causative factors) – which is assumed as the foremost strategy to conquer over any disease. Management of Pratishyay calls for calming of the vitiated vata dosha. This is done by shodhana (Expulsive therapy by nasya (nasal drops) and basti therapy (medicated enema)], and following appropriate precautions [in ahar (food) and vihar (lifestyle regimen)] plus symptomatic treatment with herbal medications.1

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Ushnodaka (Warm water) for use, (Triphala churna) for nasya (nasal infusion) or mix with honey to be used in diet.
  • Tea prepared with ginger, honey and lemon may help
  • Factors that are identified to cause symptoms should be avoided.
  • Milk products, fish or sea food, alcohol and virudha ahara (opposing foods) should be avoided.
  • Yogic breathing exercises and saline irrigation through Neti karma may also be beneficial when practiced under proper guidance.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Avoid diwaswap (daytime sleeping), and Atapa sevana (excessive outdoor work).
