Sneezing and runny nose with itchy nostrils. Avil helpful? Yoga?

Hello Dr, Daily early mornings i get itching in the nostril and starts runny nose after that. This happens when is sleep only. I wake up once i get the itchy feelfing. The day becomes a worst day of sneezing .There will be 10 sneezings per day and becoming tired. I am not happy with Alerid-D which was prescribed by my X doctor as it could not stop the runny nose but stops the Sneezing. I tried Avil as per a physicians advice it worked. I dont have any troubles for that 2 days with a tablet. Please let me know if there will be any side effects of that and also please advice will there a remedy for this problem by physical excercise or yoga . Thanks&Regards Siva

1. Is it seasonal or perennial Allergy.
2. Ayurveda believes Ama (Toxins) and Low Immunity level to be the prime cause of allergies.
3. elevate the head at night time to prevent nasal congestion.
4. Avoid: dairy products,foods which are difficult to digest,cold stuff.
5. In yoga you can go for breathing Exercises like : Anulom-Vilom Pranayam, and after few weeks start practicing Kapalbhati.
6. Practice nasal cleaning with water (Jal Neti) whose effects are encouraging in relieving symptoms.

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

Side effects of Avil are minimal, the main side effect being sedation. So do not drive/operate heavy machinery while on medication.

Yoga will definitely be of great help to you. So , sign up for yoga classes. The effects of yoga are not immediate, and it will take a while to see the results.

Drink warm water at regular intervals.

Hope this helps.

Vyakradi Kashaya: Take 20 ml Kashaya (4 teaspoon) + 40 ml light Hot water and take it at 6.00 am and 5.00 pm in empty stomach. Take food only 1 hour minimum after taking kashaya.

Talisapatradi choornam (intermittently):Take these choorna(medicinal coarse powder) intermittently as 5 times a day and don't exceed it consumption beyond 15 gm a day took it 3 gm(after breakfast), 3gm(at 11.00 am),3gm (after lunch),3 gm (at 5 p.m) and 3 gm(after supper)

The ideal food you can have while using Ayurvedic medicine is non-spicy, non-oily, vegetarian diet.

Hi Siva
The symptoms you have mentioned are mostly due to allergy and anti allergic medicines do good to check acute episodes. In herbal medicines we use immunoboosters and kaphghan medicines which ensure cure of recurreent episodes. As a home remedy turmeric in hot milk and black pepper with tulsi leaves do good.
