In Pratishyaya (Rhinitis), Vata is the main Dosha (humors) associated with Kapha, Pitta and Rakta (Blood) in its manifestation. Its improper management leads to Dushta Pratishyaya and further may cause complications like Badhirya (Hearing loss), Andhatwa (Blindness), Aghranatwam (Anosmia). Vataja Pratishyaya may be correlated with Allergic Rhinitis which is the commonest disease affecting more than 30% to 40% of all allergies in India. This study is aimed to understand the efficacy of Rasanjanadi Taila Nasya (Instillation of medicated oil in nostrils) and Gudardraka internally in Vataja Partishaya (Allergic Rhinitis).
