Enema or Colonic Irrigation is mainly for removing Vata associated toxins, but alternative vasti’s can be used to remove Pitta and Kapha toxins, which makes it the mother of all Panchakarma treatments since it cleanses the accumulated toxins from all the 3 doshas, through the colon depending on the medications used for the procedure. Water goes in and cleans the large intestines and is eventually discharged. As a rule, the water that is used for vasti should not be cold or hot but of body temperature, so that the sensitive internal parts, the intestines, do not get a shock, causing the muscles to contract. The practice of Vasti induces a lot of pranic energy. It stimulates the pranic energy and one feels very active and dynamic afterwards. This procedure is usually applied for 8 to 30 days, based on the medical condition of a person. The water absorbs the heat of the body and brings it out when it comes gushing out. This discharge of physical heat cannot be recuperated immediately if the weather is cold, so it is usually done on days with warm weather.
