Chronic rhinitis When the nasal mucosa causes problems
“I have scabs in my nose all the time,” “My nose always feels dry,” “Actually, my nose is always running.”
This or something similar is how people with chronic rhinitis experience their disease.
The inflammation of the nasal mucosa can take very different forms. It can be too dry and form irritating bark, or too moist, so that the nose constantly runs. The nasal mucosa can begin to proliferate and form polyps that make breathing through the nose difficult. Or it may regress, leaving it defenseless against bacterial colonization. Even the sense of smell can be lost.
So this is not something that sufferers should take lightly.
How does Vedic medicine view chronic rhinitis?
Chronic rhinitis from the Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, chronic rhinitis starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of chronic rhinitis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the upper respiratory tract and especially the nose. Each rhinitis patient knows that that the symptoms fluctuate and the cause is often unclear.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s rhinitis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, chronic rhinitis is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They realize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. Mostly, the focus is on the elimination of toxins from the digestive tract and the head area directly through the nose. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help with a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can tackle chronic rhinitis from the root.
