VIRECHANA: COMPLETE PURGATION OF BODY TOXINS
The process in which unwanted tissues are untied from the body through controlled purgation is called Virechana. Pitta rests in the naval region of our body. Virechana is said to be the best treatment to defeat the accumulation of Pitta. If we don’t overcome this accumulation of Pitta, it might lead us to liver disorders, diabetes, gastritis, etc. One of the Panchkarma therapies, which is made to eliminate the Pitta dosha, also bids an adieu to Kapha dosha. if Doshas are highly aggravated, then Shodhana (Detoxification) is required.
Virechana has to begin with an initial consultation of an Ayurvedic doctor, who has to determine the individual’s body constitution, the nature of the health problem, level of metabolism and the toxin accumulation and medicines are hence given on the person’s doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and a lot of other factors. The treatment lasts for 10 – 15 days.
1) Poorvakarma (preparative procedure), the preparatory procedure; is to be performed before the main therapy, which is includes Deepan-Pachan followed by Snehapan for 3-7 days as per the nature of bowel of the patient until achieving features of adequate oleation. This is followed by Abhyang(massage) and Swedana (sudation) for next 3 days.
