For the event, a huge tent was put up at NIA for these students to receive ‘nasya panchakarma’ treatment simultaneously. In this method of treatment, a patient receives medicines or herbs through the nose.
‘Nasya’ is mainly done for diseases related to the head. It also helps in treating health-related problems of ear, throat and nose, including allergic rhinitis, migraine, pharyngitis and hair fall. It is also beneficial for maintaining healthy eyesight.
