Allergic rhinitis is one of the most common and most prevalent ailment, familiar to all with an equal distribution more or less through out the world, rather without any exception to the developed and under developed countries. Bronchial asthma is the main complication of allergic rhinitis because patients of nasal allergy have four times more risk of developing bronchial asthma. In modern medical system a wide range of antibiotics and decongestants is available, but these drugs give only symptomatic relief. So it is need of hour to develop a treatment protocol, which helps the patients to overcome this pathetic condition hence this problem was selected for the study taking all these points into consideration. In this present study Pippalyadi taila for Nasya therapy and Haridra khanda as oral drug was selected. Total 32 patients were registered and randomly divided into two groups. In group A Haridra khanda and in group B Pippalyadi taila Nasya along with Haridra khanda were given for 2 months. The effect of therapy in both groups was assessed by a specially prepared proforma. In both the groups an apparent difference in all the signs and symptoms was observed. In oral group and combined group maximum number of patients i.e., 45.45% and 53.33% respectively showed marked improvement.
