What is Nasya?
Nasya is another way to detox, used in Ayurvedic medicine. In Ayurveda all detox or cleansing techniques are called Pancha Karma.
In the practise of Nasya, medical oils or other healing liquids are administered through the nostrils. It is known that the nose is the gate to the head, the door to conciousness and the pathway to your inner pharmacy and that is the reason that Nasya is used for disorders of the head, like migraines, chronic colds, sinus problems, blockages due to mucous accumulations.
What are the health benefits of Nasya?
The therapy of Nasya cleanses and opens the channels of the head and this practise improves the oxygen uptake and the air circulation on different levels and it has a direct influence on the functioning of the brain.
It strengthens the sensory perception, the nose, the ears and the eyes and it also slows down the aging process.
Administer Nasya on an empty stomach. Lie down with the head tilted back and put max 5 drops of Nasya in each nostril. Sniff deeply, then remain lying for a minute or so to allow the Nasya to penetrate.
General contra indications for using the Nasya technique are: astma, heart- and lungproblems.
