Getting my nose pierced is something I have thought about for a while but never got around to actually doing. That is until recently a thought popped into mind about how nose piercing is quite common amongst Indian women, which I always thought was solely due to tradition, but what if there is some Ayurvedic significance?
So after doing some research I found that there is a node or marma in the left nostril that is associated with the female reproductive organs and a piercing at this point can help reduce pain during periods and childbirth. Fascinating! That sold the deal for me so I finally got my nose pierced and I love it! I thought it would take some getting used to but when I took a peek in the mirror after the piercing it looked and felt so natural.
