Abstract:

Systemic and topical nasal decongestants are often used in otorhinolaryngology and general practice to treat acute rhinosinusitis and as an adjuvant in some types of chronic rhinosinusitis. These treatments can occasionally be purchased over-the-counter and can be the target of misuse, which is challenging to prevent. These medicines are particularly effective at quickly reducing nasal congestion. Herbal extract and isolated plant components play a significant role in preparing a traditional Ayurvedic balm to treat nasal congestion and allergic rhinitis. We focus on the modern science of ayurvedic treatment to respiratory therapy. The innovation was Cow Ghee base balm with herbal phytochemicals to prevent respiratory conditions as mentioned earlier.
