Deviated Nasal Septum (DNS)
The thin wall between the nostrils is made of cartilage and bone, and is called the septum. When this is off-center or crooked, it is called a deviated septum.
A deviated septum may be present at birth, may become crooked during growth, or may be caused by injury to the nose and face.
A deviated septum often does not have any symptoms, but some symptoms include; difficulty breathing through the nose, nasal congestion, sinus infections, nosebleeds, nose drips, sleep problems, headaches etc.
Some symptoms of deviated septum may be treated with medication. More severe cases of deviated septum may require surgery to repair the septum;
- Deviated septum surgery (septoplasty) is to correct a deformity in the nasal septum.
- Turbinectomy or turbinoplasty is the surgical reduction or removal of an enlarged turbinate (nasal tissue) inside the nose.
- There are risks and complications for all surgeries; those for deviated septum and turbinate surgeries are infrequent, but include the following:
- nasal obstruction,
- chronic nasal drainage,
- numbness of facial structures,
- septal perforation,
- alteration of sense of smell or taste, and
- failure to resolve any associated nasal or sinus problem
Ayurveda treats Deviated septum through a Panchkarma therapy of 7 days.It is called Nasya that involves Ayurveda face massage, herbal steam and specific Ayurveda oil or herbs or powder into the nostrils.
–Nasal infusion modifies the function of ADNYA CHAKRA (Nerve plexus at the base of the nose between the eye brows, which is connected with the Master gland i.e. Pituitary gland of the body) which controls all most all hormonal secretions in the body ultimately controls whole body physiology.
It kills the receptors, which shows hypersensitivity to dust and other allergens.
-Cleans the blocked sinuses, kills microorganism responsible for sinusitis and reduces the inflammation in the sinuses.
-Surgeries can be avoided for Sinusitis, DNS (Deviated nasal septum) with this simple but very effective therapy.
