Abstract

Ayurveda is very well known science in this global scenario because of its holistic approach towards positive lifestyle. In Ayurveda for treating any disorder it has two ways to deal with it i.e. Shodhana and Shamana Chikitsa. Out of this Niruha Basti Chikitsa is considered as one of the Shodhana Chikitsa. The word Basti (medicated enema) means bladder. In ancient times bladder of animal is used to conduct this procedure. Hence the procedure is named as Basti Karma. Different types of Niruha Basti are mentioned in Samhitas by using different permutations and combinations of herbs as per the need of action. Due to some traditional mindsets these Niruha Yogas were not widely practiced now a day. So this article aims to review the different combinations of Niruha Basti as told in Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita in order to explore the scientific approach for the benefit of mankind.
