Treating for Sinusitis

The Royal way of treating Sinusitis: Mrunalini

The name “Mrunalini” was given to our medicine for sinusitis, to honour Dr. Mrs. Mrunalini Devi Puar, the Late Chancellor of The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. She was the first person who experimented with this medicine to alleviate her sinus problems. It was way back in 1999, when she came to visit our exhibition in ‘Medicinal Plants’ in Department of Botany, I had shown her two herbs “Parpataka” (Oldenlandia corymbosa) and “Sahadevi” (Vernonia cinerea) which I used for treating sinus troubles of my daughter sheba (Dr. Elizabeth Robin, Asst.
