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.
