A Case Study on Nasa Arsha
Arsha is an old mankind being an abnormal to routine life. Arsha does not cause any threat to life but troubles a lot, so it is included in one of the Astha Maharogas by Sushruta. Nasal polyp is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the nasal cavity and the paranasal sinuses. It is a relatively common disease occurring in 1% - 4% of the general population, but it is also seen in the pediatric population. Children present with nasal polyps are also known to have other underlying systemic diseases, mainly cystic fibrosis and bronchial asthma. Nasal polyp is common in the pediatric population especially in teenage, and is found usually bilateral. In Samhita we don’t get detail explanation of Nasa Arsha Nidana Samprapti, Lakshana and Chikitsa. It can be correlated with nasal polyp. It is affecting upto 4% population. We can treat a disease more easily, successfully and cost effectively by Ayurvedic treatment.
