Method: A 45 year old lady with presenting complaints of facial pain with nasal blockage, Congestion, thick nasal discharge from seven days with recurrent attack of such symptoms since 25 years was examined in the O.P.D of Dept. of ENT, Govt. Ayurved college & Hospital Nagpur. Diagnosis by X- ray (PNS) revealed that the patient was suffering from chronic Sinusitis. Depending upon the clinical and radiological examinations, patient was advised to practice 1 week Yogic kriya-Jalaneti with saindhavJala(hypertonic lukewarm saline water) of 200 ml at one time wash. The procedure was carried out for consecutive seven days in the O.P.D of E.N.T Department without any conventional medications.
Results: Clinical and Radiological status of the patient was compared before and after the therapy which showed a gradual decline in the classical symptoms of sinusitis
