WHAT IS EPISTAXIS?
Epistaxis is the medical name for a nosebleed, which is the loss of blood from the tissue lining the nose. Typically, only one nostril is impacted. There are several microscopic blood arteries in the nose, which are located near the inner surface and can become dry and irritated when air flows through the nose. This make them particularly vulnerable to damage or breaking, which might result in a nosebleed.
CAUSES OF EPISTAXIS :
- Dry air
- Nose picking
- Facial trauma
- Anatomical irregularities
- Cold and Sinustis episodes
- Allergic and Non0allergic rhinitis
HOW AYURVEDA HELPS?
It is comparable to Urdhvagata Raktapitta in Ayurveda. Pitta dosha can become vitiated as a result of Nidan sevan, such as poor food and stressful lifestyle. Due to its heated and liquid potency, exacerbated Pitta clogs the Rakta vaha channels and increases the body’s blood volume. As the volume increases, it flows higher and begins to exit trough nasal passages.
Ayurvedic measures are helpful in managing Epistaxis because in Ayurveda there is elimination of the root cause of disease by using several ayurvedic herbs and also balance out the vitiated Doshas.
