I prefer combination of :
1. Tab Trishun - 1 tid

3. Tab. Flurin - 1 tid
I assure my patient to take this max 3 - 5 days. I do ask them to stop all modern medicine. and it works....steam inhalation and home remedies like turmeric + milk, gargle with turmeric water etc. do support.
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni: According to Vaidya Panchanan Gune Shastri , Tribhuvankeerti should NOT be given in the Sama awastha of Pratishyay , which generally lasts for 4 days. Otherwise , patient gets headache. I have experienced this. So , I start treatment with Sookshma Triphala , amruta , Shringa bhasma etc. After 4 days , Tribhuvankeerti gives result in literally start dose.Taking steam is mandatory.

Dr. Jyoti Ashok: One of the main reason for jeerna pratishyaya is adhyashana. Restrict to 3 meals a day. Nothing in best except liquids. Another reason is excess consumption of water. Restrict that. For allergic causes increase the immunity. I usually first give proper or mridu virechana . Then start with agastya rasayana / chyavanprash/ bhavana jeeraka rasayana/ ashwagandha rasayana etc acc. to patients. Followed by Grita brashta haridra in hot milk. Anu taila nasya. 2 drops in each nostrils once or twice a day.

Drinking Ushano odak made with sunthi And applying hot sunthi on scalp when there is severe attack of rhinitis especially in rainy season , in Mumbai rainy season is very bad for these or Other medicine that gives good results are Histantin tablets (Kerala Ayurved pharmacy), Haridra khanda, Nasya with anu tail(nasya is not always beneficial we have to differentiate well as saam or niraam avast ha, when to advice nasya and especially in Mumbai bcoz there is lots of humidity, )
Vd. Kirti: Pratishyay- Unnecessary water intake should be avoid.

Ayulink: we will continue with pratishyay - acute or chronic, with any etiology or pathology. Also please discuss pratishyay (symptom) as side effect of any medicine/ process or disease.
For example: I have observed many time pratishyay can be there as side effect of shirodhara - if done with oils like chandanadi, chandanabakadi or shit virya herbs in cold climate. Such conditions are not easy to control. Also please discuss pratishyay as a symptom of any other disease.
Dr.Priyanka Sampat : Gen in such conditions local swedan, pradhaman nasya with plain vacha, pachan dravya shankh vati if headache severe then sut shekhar, if req mukh lepam with shunthi and vacha. That’s the main reason pt she be asked to go covered with a jacket nd cotton ear plugs. Also kerala padhati uses rasnadi choornam rubbing on scalp for shirodara it helps to take care if vitiation of vata.
Vd. Gurumahantesh: Pratishyaya will be a symptom in patients usually suffering from constipation.
Dr. Rinku Shah: How it is used? Means how we can administrted it..like pradhaman nasya?
Dr. Suyog Kulkarni: No. I rub tablet Tribhuvankeerti on the stone with is used to paste sandalwood (in marathi it is called सहाण ). In short , make thin paste & use it as regular nasya liquid . It does give lot of burning to begin with , but very good results.
Dr.Priyanka Sampat: Teekshna nasya type Shodhan

Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: What cn we do for nasal blockages? In adults as well as children.
Vd. Rahul Botadara: nasya with Anutail
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Is Anutail opens blockage? I saw many pt with blockage increases in the evening. As vaat kaf anubandh is there. I am helpless at that time.
Vd. Rahul Botadara: yes After 30 minit
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Also I hv one pt with pratishyay since 10 yrs. Loss sensation of smell. In such cases what can we do? If I can give her Upshay that will be great achievement for me as she is suffering since 10 yrs. Can ahe regain her sense of smelling?
Ayulink: In a similar patient, I advised for shadbindu oil for one month. Patient experienced somewhat improvement in smelling sense. And pratishyay was completely disappeared.
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: Timing
Ayulink: Once a day in morning. Does - six drops in each nostril.
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: 6 6 drpos daily?
Ayulink: Yes. The name of the formula indicates the same. Shad = six, and bindu = drops.
Dr Sandeep Mishra: Shadbindu taila is good for migraine also ?
Vd. Prakash Trivedi: Sometimes pt. Complaints heaviness of head and severe head after the instillation of Shadbindu oil in each nostrils, so what can I advise to the pt.?Headache.
Ayulink: In both cases - pratishyay or shirahshul, shadbindu oil may produce side effects or complications, if not done properly. This is my practical observation. Basically for pratishyay (acute or chronic); I don't go with shadbindu oil directly. But somebody asked or smell sense disturbance due to cold, in that matter we r discussing abt this nasya.
In general acute condition of pratishyay (or similar conditions like sinusitis, rhinitis or coryza or hey fever - my choice is laxmivilas ras, tribhuvankirti ras - 1 tid and if needed nag gutika - 1 bid gives very fast result (response time is about 1 hour). I don't need to go for nasya. I can ask my patient to stop anti allergic, antihistamine, antipyretic, decongestant etc and totally with Ayurveda medi we can provide the same result, faster or sometimes cheaper then modern medicine
Vd. Pritam Bharat Veer: What do u do in Jirn pratisyay?
Vd. Yashpalsinh Jadeja: Improperly taking churna also cause pratisyay...!!!!it was happened with some students ! काल is also very imp in pratisyay, kas, swas. मुहुर्मुहू aplicacion of medicine is very imp.. i always prescribes sitopaladi or talisadi every 1-2 hr with madhu ghit. it gives very gd results
Dr. Renu Agarwal: Sir in what dose?
Vd. Yashpalsinh Jadeja: acc to dosh nd rogi condition. sometimes 2-3 gm nd sometimes 5 grm.
Ayulink: Proper nasya karma for 8-10 days.
Slovania Kaja Kastner: What some simple remedies, if we don't get all ayurvedic medicines?
Tilak Raj Gujrani: To clear blocked nostrils, nasya of crushed Swas kuthar ras is very effective. It melts the phlegm in sinusitis and clear discharges by nose. In chronic cases, Chitrak haritki and haridra khand 100 gm each. Mix together. Take 5 gm bd with Luke warm water. Sitopladi churan 100 gm + abhrak bhasm 10 gm + ras sindur 5 gm. Mix. Take 2.5 gm bd with honey. Laxmi vilas ras naardiya + Tab. Septilin , both 1 tab each. BD. Keep your body well hydrated. Get very good results and patient cured in 2-3 weeks.
Dr. Santosh Mali: One of t different thinking related to pratishya. By Vd.Jamdagni sir also m using in my practise.
Considering pratishya as nasa atisar....use of sanjivani vati kutajaridhta...n other drugs from atisar are very effective in acute as well as chronic pratishya. Also using panchbahutik sidanata....in pratishya aap mahabuta in sharir increases so to compenset aap mahabhuta use of drug having prutvi guna......gairik rajani
Vd. Krutika Suhas Chaudhary: dhanyak him n avipattikar churn cn b the cause. Jirn / recurruntpratishyay is one of the cause of hairfall and dandruff. And also pratishyaya kasa kshaya. In vatik if its anaha then sweet soup of bajra flourmade with jaggery and ghee is the best remedy. It should be used frequently. Also sweden/steam with ajmoda fant and vicks works miraculously.
Dr. P. A. Deshpande: I have three types of treatment by alternative therapy 1). Electro magnetic therapy. On scalp around eyes. And throat. 2). Cupping. Therapy. 3). Ozone plus oxygen bt bagging system. Give treatment at each points for 3 to 5 minutes. Cronic cold is cured in a week or two. No side effects. Can be taken along with medication also. Fir non recurrance change life style etc. The magnetic waives kills bacterias .Directly . For draining debris and mucas use cupping therapy on same points as above. Images given below of electro magnetic machine demo and cupping. Treatment by OZONE plus OXYGEN mixture bagging for chronic cold in this method mixture of ozone and oxygen is used.A outlet is inserted in plastic bag of size 14 X 18 inches. The tube is set at the level of nose. After starting mixture flow the bag is tightly closed by elastic strip. The bag inflates with gas pressure and excess pressure is discharge from the closed side since not air tight but retains pressure . Deep continuous breathing is done. The treatment is given for 20 minutes.The mixture jill bacteria . Two weeks treatment is enough without side effects. Ozone output at 5 mcg and oxygen flow @ 25 litres per minute is maintained. These treatments are developed by me with very low profile investment giving highest good and without any side effects results.1). Electro magnetic therapy- The two way instrument is better to use. It has two conductors. Two controls are provided for adjustment of frequency and cycle adjust them according to tolerance . Points of application.1 ) above eyebrows . 2) below eyes 3) both side of nose 4) centre between eyebrows n centre between eye and ear 5) same way other side 5) both sides of throat.
Vd. Prakash Trivedi: It's good for sinusitis. Most likely this is the point of sinuses.
