Vasti is an important Panchakarma technique in which medicinal decoctions and oils are instilled through rectal route into the colon. There are two types of vastis given alternatively for 8 or 16 days depending upon grade and severity of endometriosis.
First type of vasti is Niruha vasti prepared with decoction, oil and herbs with the emulsification process and second type is Anuvasan Vasti prepared with Ayurvedic oils.
How Vasti works in Endometriosis?
Out of the various functions of Vata in our body, one important function is to maintain proper blood
flow in periods without any pain or discomfort and to maintain optimal fertility. Dysfunction or
imbalance of vata in the body can lead to pain in periods, irregular flow and infertility which are the
commonest symptoms of endometriosis. Colon or large intestine is considered to be the seat of Vata from where it controls various bodily functions and therefore vasti which directly acts on the colon is done to balance vata.
WhyVasti is important in Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is considered as Vata dominant disease and along with Ayurvedic medicines which treats the root cause of endometriosis, vasti treatment is equally important. At SKK AYURVEDA, after years of research and observations, we have come out with specific herbs and oils for vasti treatment in endometriosis.
