Alternative Treatment For Deviated Nasal Septum(DNS)


A Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS] occurs when the nasal septum (thin wall of cartilage and bony composition, between right and left nostrils) is displaced from its normal position. Normally the nasal septum is straight leaving proper space for air passage in both nostrils to allow normal breathing. Obstruction can be seen in one nostril or both nostrils, depending upon the type of Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS]. We will have a look at various causes, symptoms, complications, and ayurvedic management for Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS].


When the nasal septum deviates more to one or the other side making the nostrils passage smaller, that condition is termed a Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS]. It may obstruct airflow and make it difficult to breathe. This is a common disorder of the nasal septum. The nasal septum consists of bone posteriorly and the cartilage hyaline cartilage) anteriorly. Sometimes Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS] can be due to genetic connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome. Nasal obstruction can be partial or complete and unilateral or bilateral, depending on the type of Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS].

deviated nasal septum

It is of many types

  • Anterior dislocation
  • C shaped deflection
  • S-shaped deflection
  • Nasal spur
  • Thickening of the nasal septum

The severity of septum deviation is graded from mild to severe based on the extent of narrowing of nostrils and passage least for air passage.

Ayurvedic Aspect

We can correlate this Deviated Nasal Septum [DNS] condition with ‘Nasanah‘ in Ayurveda. Due to Kapha dosha aavrit Udan Vayu, the nasal passage is blocked and no passage of air or sneezing is allowed through that narrow passage. Basically, Vata dosha along with kapha dosha is responsible for Nasanah. The symptoms of nasanah are the same as those of Deviated Nasal Septum. For the management of Nasanah – snehpan, dhoopan (intake of herbs fumes), shirobasti, nasya (introducing medicated herbal oils in the nostrils), and dietary methods are practiced in Ayurveda. Medications used orally are described further in the article.
