Ayurvedic Vamana: The Ultimate Purification Therapy for Vital Health

At Ayusanjivani Ayurveda Clinic in Kharadi, Pune, we offer Vamana, one of the five main therapeutic procedures of Panchakarma in Ayurveda. Vamana is a specialized form of induced emesis or controlled vomiting aimed at eliminating excess Kapha dosha and toxins from the upper gastrointestinal tract and respiratory system. This powerful Ayurvedic treatment is recommended for individuals with an aggravated Kapha dosha and various respiratory, digestive, and metabolic disorders. Our skilled Ayurvedic practitioners at Ayusanjivani Ayurveda Clinic in Kharadi, Pune, administer Vamana with precision and care to ensure a safe and effective detoxification process. Experience the transformative benefits of Vamana at Ayusanjivani Ayurveda Clinic as we restore balance to your doshas and promote overall well-being.

The Vamana procedure typically involves the following steps

Purvakarma (Preparation Phase):

Before the Vamana procedure, the individual undergoes a preparatory phase to loosen and liquefy the toxins and excess Kapha in the body. This phase includes specific dietary changes and internal administration of medicated ghee or oils.

Snehapana (Internal Oleation):

The person is given medicated ghee or oils to ingest over several days, which helps to lubricate the body tissues and draw out the impurities from the deep tissues to the digestive tract.

Svedana (External Fomentation):

After Snehapana, external fomentation, such as steam therapy or warm water baths, is administered to further soften and loosen the toxins in the body.

Vamana (Emesis Therapy):

Once the toxins and Kapha have been adequately mobilized, the individual is given a specific herbal decoction to induce vomiting. This process helps to expel the accumulated toxins and Kapha from the stomach and upper respiratory tract.

Paschatkarma (Post-Procedural Care):

After Vamana, the person is given a specific post-procedural diet and lifestyle guidelines to aid in recovery and restore balance in the body. This phase is crucial for rejuvenation and promoting overall health.
