Retrospective observational study on Vasantika Vamana
Background: Panchakarma presents a unique approach of Ayurveda with specially designed five procedures of internal purification of the body through the nearest possible route. Such purification allows the biological system to return to homeostasis & to rejuvenate rapidly & also facilitates the desired pharmaco-therapeutic effects of medicines administered thereafter. Panchakarma has a full therapy role as promotive, preventive & curative procedure. Ayurveda has also explained specific treatment procedures for particular Doshas, for example- Vamana Karma for Kapha Dosha, Virechana for Pitta Dosha and Basti Karma for Vata Dosha is advised. Objectives: To Study the role of Prakriti, Snehana, Kaphotklesha, Naishe Jeerna, and Nishasupti in the outcome of Vamana Karma. Materials and methods: In this study, data was collected from 5 patients who underwent Vamana Karma using standardized assessment formats. Observations: Average first day Sneha dose, last day Sneha dose and total days of Snehapana were 36 ml, 122 ml and 4.6 days respectively. Average quantity of Madanaphala, Ksheera, Yastimadhu Phanta and Lavanodaka were 5.2gms, 1740 ml, 4692ml and 1060ml respectively. Conclusion: It can be concluded that Kaphotklesha grade is directly proportional to the Shuddhi grade and the best Vamana Shuddhi depends mainly upon Vamaka dravya, dose, Sukhavamana, Kaphotklesha, Naishajirna, and Nishasupti factors.
