Vamana, an integral part of Panchakarma – Ayurveda therapeutic modalities, is a potent cleansing and detoxification procedure. Vamana facilitates the expulsion of accumulated toxins, restoring Dosha equilibrium and vitality.

Vamana therapy is used in the treatment of respiratory conditions like allergies, sinusitis, and metabolic conditions such as obesity. During the therapy, patients undergo preparatory measures or Purvakarma, followed by the ingestion of medicated herbal decoctions to induce vomiting. The process is supervised by trained Ayurveda doctors to ensure safety and efficacy. After the therapy, patients experience improved digestion, respiratory function, and overall well-being along with symptom alleviation. 

Apollo AyurVAID's Procedure Of Vamana

Our Vamana program involves a series of therapeutic sessions conducted under the guidance of our experienced Ayurveda physicians. It begins with a comprehensive consultation to assess the individual’s health status and customize the treatment plan. 

Duration: Typically lasts 7-14 days, depending on individual needs. It involves the following:

  1. Purvakarma (Preparatory Procedure) – The process of Vamana begins with Snehapana where the patient receives medicated Ghee in customized doses, followed by Abhyangam and Swedana (body massage with medicated oil and herbal steam). Before the procedure, the patient is advised to consume foods that increase Kapha, such as heavy meals, sweets, and oily substances, the day before.
  2. Pradhan Karma (Main Therapy of Vamana) – On Vamana day, patients receive an Abhyanga and Swedana, and Vamana-specific medications to induce vomiting. Physicians closely monitor the patient for discomfort or complications to ensure safety and effectiveness. 
  3. Pashchat Karma (Post Treatment and Recovery) – After the expulsion of toxins, the patient undergoes a period of rest and recuperation. Post-treatment care includes specific dietary recommendations, herbal supplements, and lifestyle modifications to maintain the benefits of the therapy.
