Welcome to Shreeji Ayurved Panchakarma and Homeopathy hospital _ Research center


literally means vomiting. It is ayurvedic method of getting rid of kapha and disorders that are a result of aggrevated kapha dosha.


When there is congestion in the lungs causing repeated attacks of bronchitis, colds, cough or asthma, the Ayurvedic treatment is therapeutic vomiting i.e Vaman.
This to eliminst the kapha that causes excess mucus.


Vaman is advised in case of : 

Loss of appetite
Heaviness of body, laziness, lack of interest in work, dullness
Cold, coryza, increased phlegm

Therapeutic vomiting is also indicated in chronic asthma, diabetes, chronic cold, lymphatic congestion, chronic indigestion and edema. 


First, after the snehan and swedan, three to four glasses of licorice or salt water is administered, then vomiting is stimulated by rubbing the tongue which triggers the vomiting center through the gag reflex. (Many times this also releases repressed emotions which have been held in the kapha areas of the lungs and stomach along with the accumulated dosha) One may alternatively take two to three glasses of salt water which will also aggravate kapha and then rub the tongue to induce vomiting. Once the mucus is released the patient will feel instantly relieved. It is likely that congestion, wheezing and breathlessness will disappear and that the sinuses will become clear. 

Before Vaman is administered, oil massage and fomentation are recommended on the night before 5 to 7 days of Vaman. 5 to 7 days prior to Vaman, the person should drink one cup of recommended oil at early in the morning empty stomach day until the stool becomes oily, or until he or she feels nauseated. The person should also eat a kaphagenic diet to that is cured udiddal, fermented food to aggravate kapha in the system. Vaman should be given early in the morning (kapha time). The person should eat basmati rice and yogurt with much salt early in the morning, which will further aggravate kapha in the stomach. The application of heat to the chest and back will liquefy the kapha. The person should sit calmly on a knee-high chair and drink the decoction of licorice and honey, or salt water. This emesis preparation is measured and recorded before being drunk, so that at a later time the amount of vomitus from the decoction can be determined. After drinking the decoction the person should feel nauseated. He should then rub the tongue to induce vomiting, continuing until bile comes out in the vomitus. The degree of success in this treatment is determined by:

  • The number of vomitings (8 is maximum, 6 medium, 4 minimum)
  • The quantity of vomitus (1 quart maximum, 1 1/2 pints medium, 1 pint minimum).
