Adults 15 to 25 ml and children 5 to 15 ml or as prescribed by an Ayurvedic physician. Self-medication is not advised.
As per Ayurveda, the primary cause of rhinitis is the accumulation of Ama.
Ayurveda states that the digestive and metabolic process in the body has to be efficient in order to be healthy. This is dependent on the Agni or digestive fire. When the digestive process is not proper there is an accumulation of a metabolic waste called Ama. When Ama builds up over time it becomes the highly toxic Amavisha that causes a lot of health issues. When it affects the Rasa and Rakhta Dhatus it causes allergic rhinitis.
To avoid Ama buildup we need to ensure that the digestive fire is at its optimum and that the food intake is fresh and unprocessed.
Allergic rhinitis is referred to as Vata-Kaphaja Pratishaya. It is caused by Ama (toxins), Virudh Adhaar and Asatmya (foreign bodies).
Virudh Adhaar is the wrong intake of the wrong combinations of food. It can also refer to eating the wrong thing at the wrong time of day. Some examples are fish and milk, ice cream at night etc.
Ayurvedic rhinitis treatment involves the relieving of ama and the balancing of the three Doshas. Medication is given and also supported with other Panchakarma treatments if needed. Dietary recommendations should also be followed.
Lifestyle changes include eating the right foods and being aware of what food one should not eat at night. If there are particular triggers for rhinitis, they should be avoided. Being active, getting plenty of exercise and fresh air is good. One should avoid sleeping in the day and soon after dinner.
Vata type of rhinitis has symptoms of headache and sleeplessness. Pitta type may be accompanied by fever and yellow nasal discharge. Kapha has heavy white mucus and may have a congestion of the sinuses.
Rhinitis is the inflammation of the inner lining of the nose. When it lasts for a shorter time it is called acute rhinitis and long term problems are called chronic rhinitis. Chronic rhinitis is usually allergic in nature. Chronic rhinitis is also hay fever and can be caused by allergens, irritants, pregnancy, medications and smoking. Patients suffering from asthma and chronic sinusitis also have a tendency to have chronic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is caused when the body has an extreme immune response to an allergen. This does not happen when the person is first exposed to the allergen. It happens when the person gets exposed enough to cause the production of antibodies against it. This is called sensitisation. The histamine that is released by the body to defend against the allergen causes the symptoms. This is why allergic rhinitis medication includes antihistamines. Common allergens are dust, pollen, spores, animals and other things such as wood or rubber. Allergens can also be work-related. Having allergic reactions tends to be hereditary or common in children who have been exposed to allergens at a young age. Non-allergic rhinitis is caused when the blood vessels in the nose expand. The symptoms are similar to allergic rhinitis but the occurrence is round the year. This type could be caused by medication, weather and some kinds of food.
