The Ashtanga Hrdayam suggests that in the cases of atisara and grahani that the patient begins with a cleaning process to remove toxins. Therapy for atisara includes vomiting and purgation which may be helpful in removing the substance or bacteria that is obstructing the proper flow of the digestive tract. As the patient is weak, appetite needs to be built. Fasting or eating lightly for a few days is helpful for both Atisara and Grahani. To reduce further vata imbalances. Fasting should include oleation with vata reducing medicated oils The fasting and cleansing period should last no longer than seven to ten days depending on the patients’ strength.
Medicines are prescribed by the doctor after a thorough examination of the patient. Treatments must be done under the supervision or advice of a certified Ayurvedic Doctor and not based on self-judgment.
