Basti Recipes: The Ayurvedic Enema

Basti Recipes: The Ayurvedic Enema

In Ayurveda, Basti is an enema consisting of herbal oils or medicated decoctions. There are many different kinds of recipes for this Ayurvedic enema.

Before trying these recipes that I am going to share with you, see to it that you have consulted a medical doctor or a qualified Ayurvedic Physician first if you are suffering from any type of serious health issues.

Each of these recipes provides benefits as well as side effects. They are not intended for healing certain illnesses, but only to help with various nutritional imbalances. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that they are not recommended to be used by old people.

Basti is considered to be the most effective out of the 5 major Panchakarma procedures. It involves administering medicinal herbs in sesame oil by using an enema kit. These herbal enemas produce different healing benefits. In general, they are all effective in promoting the removal of the softened Vata dosha. Vata disorders consist of constipation, colon distention, kidney stones, chronic fever, sexual disorders, hyperacidity, neck pain, back pain, and the common cold.

Because Vata is chiefly found in the colon, the solution is administered rectally. Once administered, Basti assists in rejuvenating the body, providing strength and improving complexion.

Keep in mind that enemas should never be administered to individuals experiencing chronic abdominal pain, severe anemia, shortness of breath, cough, or diarrhea.
