  • Vamana: Emesis Therapy (Therapeutic vomiting)

    Hi. So my question is, does anyone know how exactly to do this? Iíve looked all over the internet and no one seems to divulge the exact procedure, claiming that you need to consult a professional. Iíve had a chronic cough with mucus for a few years now(especially after eating), and I donít have the money or means to seek out a professional.

    It honestly sounds very easy to do I just donít know the exact herbs or how much to ingest, or the precise order of steps. I donít think I need a professional at all. Iíve done ayahuasca and am very familiar with vomiting. So if anyone can shed some light on this Iíd greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    Vamana, Treatment in Ayurveda

    Vamana in Ayurveda is one of the five main procedures of Panchakarma. In this process the infected doshas are thrown out of the body by medication of emetics. Ayurveda states that the emesis procedure that is used in Vamana Therapy of Panchakarma is quite painless and smooth, with a very little nausea or discomfort. It is the procedure for discharging excess kaphic aama and kapha. It usually takes place in the upper portion that is the kapha zone of the body and it generally uses the upward movement of the doshas to eliminate aama from the body. If the body is completely prepared and if the treatment is correctly administered then vamana effectively removes the toxins from the kapha zone of the body.

    Procedure of Vamana
    Vamana procedure is mainly recommended in the spring season since there is a natural increase of kapha dosha in this season. In a disease having predominance of Kapha Dosha, Vamana can be administered at any time after performing ĎSnehanaí and ĎSwedanaí. The patient feels better after vomiting for 4 to 8 times. This is followed with the internal administration of ghee and a steam bath. After performing Vamana therapy, the patient should take rest and not consume heavy food. Fasting is highly recommended immediately after Vamana therapy.

    Benefits of Vamana
    Vamana is usually administered particularly for kapha related disorders or aama. These comprise allergies, all lung problems, diabetes mellitus, bronchial asthma, chronic colds, arthritis, chronic skin disorders, rheumatic diseases, acute abdominal diseases and more. It is also beneficial for vital disorders of the body. After vamana, the sinuses are cleared which in turn provides relief from congestion, wheezing and breathlessness.
