Other Panchakarma Treatments

What is Virechanam?

Virechanam or ‘Purgation Therapy’ is one of the five Panchakarma therapies in Ayurveda. It is indicated for diseases caused due to vitiated pitta. It is done for chronic conditions like skin diseases, gastritis, obesity, diseases related to the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, duodenum, etc.

What is The Procedure?

Virechanam treatment is carried out in pre-noon on an empty stomach. This time is called as Pitta Kalaa in Ayurveda. In the morning, after full body massage and sudation is over, the purgative medicine chosen by the doctor, according to the ailment, is given to the patient. The purgation happens until the waste products (vitiated pitta) are eliminated through the lower gastrointestinal tract. Proper rest is advised after undergoing the Virechanam therapy.

How does Virechanam work?

Snehana(unction) and Swedana(sudation) are adopted to loosen and mobilize the toxins, in an effort to eliminate toxins from the body. The special medicated drink taken in the morning will pull these toxins out of the body through Virechanam, after being brought to the Gastro-Intestinal Tract.

What Our Patients Say About Us?


Nithya AS

I found to have diabetes just 3 months back. My sugar was around 200+ .I didn’t want to go to any alloathic doctor as they will ask to take medicine life long. I saw Dr Aravind in youtube and was impressed by his speech. I went to him in Jan and he gave me Ayurvedic medicines and diet chart for diabetes reversal. It’s been 3 months now and now all medicines are stopped and as he promised my sugar levels are 105 fasting and 93 post prandial. I was shocked to see the results. All diabetes patients can go to him blindly. Just listen to his instructions. Your diabetes will be reversed.

Myself and my husband tested positive last month, and we came to know about ayurshi ayurveda thru our family member, and we have started taking ayurveda medicines from day one, within 7 days started feeling back to normal, Special thanks to Dr Arvind bharadwaj and team for providing constant support over phone for any kind of clarifications and medicines delivery also on time. Now we both completely recovered. We need to follow strict diet as prescribed by doctor along with medicines and belief.
