What Is Vamana in Ayureda : Vamana Karma, also known as medical emesis or medical vomiting, is one of the five Pradhana Karmas of Panchakarma which is used in treating Kaphaj disorders.
Only a limited number of high-quality clinical trials have been conducted to date. Common limitations include low sample size, inadequate descriptions of randomization and blinding protocols, inadequate descriptions of adverse events, and nonstandard outcome measures. In spite of this, preliminary studies support the use of panchakarma and allied therapies and warrant additional large-scale research with rigorously designed trials.
One of the five therapies of Panchakarma in Ayurveda, Vamana treatment is a medicated emesis therapy that removes Kapha toxins accumulated in the body. According to Ayurveda, psoriasis is caused due to the imbalance of Kapha dosha, which makes Vamana therapy as one of the most effective treatment procedures for psoriasis. The treatment is also prescribed to people with bronchial asthma, gastritis, skin disorders, sinusitis, diabetes and neurological ailments related to Kapha dosha.
Generally Vamana treatment is carried-out in the early morning on empty stomach when the Kapha is intense. The night before the therapy, Kapha aggravating foods are provided to the patient. On the day of the treatment, depending on the condition of the patient, heat is applied to the region of chest as well as the back portion to liquefy the Kapha. After the liquefaction of Kapha in the body a special medicated drink is given to the patient that stimulates the emesis. Waste products (vitiated dosha) are eliminated through the upper gastrointestinal tract. After the emesis, the therapy is continued with ghee treatment and a steam bath. Proper rest is advised after undergoing the Vamana therapy.
