In present time, due to modern life style, anxiety, stress etc. reasons, incidence of Vatavyadhi like Pakshaghata, Ardita etc is increasing. Aggravation of Vata is responsible to cause Ardita. On the basis of its origin and symptoms mentioned in Sushruta Samhita, Ardita can be correlated with facial paralysis or Bell«SQ»s palsy caused by involvement of VII cranial nerve. According to Acharya Charaka Nasya Karma (Navana Nasya) is the specific treatment of Ardita Roga. Bearing this idea in mind Nasya karma was selected in present study. The present study, patients, were divided into two groups. In one group, Nasya administered with Anu Taila, was taken as control drug and Mashadi Taila (Sha.S.Utt. 8/35-36) was taken as trial drug in second group. Nasya was administered, in a dose of 6 drops in each nostril for 15 days. Cardinal, Associated signs symptoms and also Doshanubandhita Lakshanas were observed before and after the treatment. To assess the voluntary movement present before and after the treatment as per House classification system of facial paralysis was adopted. If necessary and possible, heamatological and biochemical investigations were carried out before and after the treatment. In the result; both the drugs were found equally affective but Anu Taila was little more effective. In both groups, 50% patients were completely cured.
