Vasantik Vaman

Vasantik Vaman

"Prevention is better than cure" 

we all know this, but how many of us follow it seriously.

The two principle objectives of Ayurveda are :

- Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam ( स्वस्थस्य स्वास्थ्यरक्षणं )‘ – To prolong life and promote perfect health (add years to life and life to years )

- Aturasya vikar prashamanamcha ( अतुरस्य विकार प्रशमनाम्चा )‘ – To completely eradicate the disease and dysfunction of the body.

Vasantik Vaman

The first and foremost is to protect the health of a healthy erson and than is to treat the disease. For this purpose, ayurveda suggest Dinacharya (Ideal Daily Routines) & Ritucharya (Regimens as to the seasons). If these are followed properly, you can protect well being & be in the pink f health.

      Now, is the Vasant Ritu ( Spring Season) & it is the best time to do Vamankarma (Emesis). In this Season, there is an increase of conditions like sinesitis ( Running Nose), asthma, URTIs ( Upper Resp Tract Infections), Skin allergies etc.due to the natural tendency of increase in the kapha Dosha (Phlegm) in the body. If not removed this becomes vitiated and can give rise to more serious disese after certain time period fro e.g. Urticaria, Chicken Pox, Asthma, Lung Disease etc.

To do this we do the Vaman karama ( one of the panchakarma) during this season. it is both preventive as well as curative for healthy and diseased person respectively.
