VASTI - COLONIC IRRIGATION
Vasti is the primordial treatment of Vata dosha and also one of the panchakarma procedure.
Indication of vasti
Lowbackache of various etiology
Kashaya Vasti (decauction enema)
The classical reference of vasti is first said on the context of Jwara chikitsa(can be considerd as the different pathogenic conditions of fever and it's the broad spectrum attributes) ,where tridosha vitiation is at the colon.To eliminate this, Nirooha vasthi(~decauction enema) is administerd.
Before considering to continue with the procedure of vasthi, one should be sure about the the dosha status, more in detail with dominance of dosha and their associated toxicity (~āma).
The basic area of action of vasthi is at the pakwasaya(~more on the areas of small intestine).Where it's used to eliminate the vitiated-accumulated dosha after snehana in the area of colon.
The therapy has 3 different attributes in action,.utkleshana, doshaharana, samana.That is increasing the mala aspect of dosha, removing it from the body, getting back to the harmonious status.These are basically the prepratory, principal and after modalities of purification therapy.
The importance of after modalities of treatments help to the balance of fire element (agni)along with restoring the regenerative aspects.
