ABSTRACT:
Vasti Chikitsa [medicated enema treatment] is considered as Ardha Chikitsa [half of the entire treatments] in Ayurveda. There is a description of different variants of Vasti for different ailments in Ayurvedic classics. Vaitarana Vasti is such a kind of Vasti which has a unique formulation and specific indications. The etymology of Vaitarani in Vaitarani Mahatmya, where it is defined as Vai (truly) tarini (saving) which implies that the timely administration of this Vasti restores the health of the person from the hell of rogas. Vaitarana Vasti is practiced now a day’s extensively with excellent results in diseases like Amavata, Katisoola, Gridhrasi, Klaibya, Vishamajwara etc. The classical references of Vaitarana Vasti are available in different textbooks like Chakradutta, Vrindhamadhava, and Vangasena Samhita etc. There are some differences seen in the formulations mentioned by each Acharya. In clinical practice, it is also seen that the ingredients are changed according to the disease conditions. In Brihat Trayee there is no description of Vaitarana Vasti. In clinical practice there is difference opinion in determining the quantity of ingredients, determining the Drava Dravya etc. Most of the studies related Vaitarana Vasti focus on Amavata. More studies are to be done on rest of the indications like Klaibya. More researches and studies are needed to standardise the quantity of ingredients, selection of ingredients in different diseases conditions and to establish the mode of action of Vaitarana Vasti in different diseases.
