Vamana

Vamana – Emetic Therapy

Vamana is one of the five classical panchakarma therapies of Ayurveda. Vamana means therapeutic vomiting which is a medicated emesis. This treatment is done for the aggravated kapha dosha, which dislodges toxins, mainly from the lungs, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract. Ayurveda believes that different seasons have a great influence in the aggravation of doshas, ex: Kapha in hemant (spring season), pitta in Sharada (winter) season and vata in greeshma (summers) season. Hence one can adopt Vamana therapy in Spring i.e hemant season as a preventive therapy in order to prevent disorders related to kapha.
