“VASTI – Enema Detox for Men & Women Offered at Om Vedic”

Vasti or Basti Karma or Enema Therapy is the most important Panchakarma in Ayurveda healing. This therapy helps in balancing the vitiated Vata dosha or the Air body humor, which alone is responsible for 80 types of diseases & disorders.

What is a Vasti?

In the right understanding of the word, Vasti means ‘to stay’. Vasti is also regarded as the urinary bladder. In earlier times, the bladder of goat was used to give enemas, thus its name. Today disposable plastic enemas & syringes are used to push medicated decoctions viz. medicated oil enemas & cleansing enemas into the intestines of the patient.

Vasti Karma – Enema Therapy

Considered as the mother of all treatments, Vasti cleanses the accumulated toxins from all the three doshas, Vata, Pitta & Kapha, especially the Vata toxins, through the colon. The importance of Vasti Karma is that other than providing thorough detox, this procedure effectively balances the Vata dosha. This is much needed because not only does the Vata dosha cause majority of diseases in the human body, yet due to its mobile & erratic nature, the Vata dosha moves the other two doshas viz. Kapha & Pitta from one part of the body to another & thus aids in their disturbance & implementing symptoms in the form of an ailment.

Procedure of Vasti Karma:

Medicated oil or ghee & herbal decoction is given as enema to clean the colon & increase the muscle tone.

Two Main Types of Vasti:

Asthapan Vasti:

Asthapan Vasti or the enema therapy is also called as Niruhana Vasti. This vasti helps in removing the doshas (stuck inside the body tissues) in the form of faeces. Depending upon diseases, patient’s condition,the herbal decoction will be prescribed by the doctors. More often Aasthapan Vasti is given in the disease of the large intestine & the digestive tract. It also purifies all body pores.

Anuvasan Vasti:

In this method of treatment, medicated oils are given in enemas that lubricate the body tissues. It works by purifying & nourishing the seven dhatus (body tissues) inside the body viz. Rasa, Rakta, Maans, Medha, Asthi, Majjha and Shukra (Juice, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow & semen) dhatus or the body tissues. Furthermore it helps in holistic healing & thus enhancing the total health of the individual.
