Snehapanam Ayurvedic Treatments
The Process: Sneha is the Sanskrit word for Ghee and Panam means to drink. The process literally translates to mean oral intake of ghee or oil. The process involves an intake of medicated oils and ghee in gradually increasing quantities. This Process is a prerequisite to the Panchkarma therapy and aims at purifying the internals of the body.
Depending on the intensity of the ailment the process is carried out once daily on an empty stomach. During the entire duration of the treatment no other medicines are to be ingested. A strict diet too needs to be followed which is decided by the experts.
Snehapanam ayurvedic treatment is done in the morning after attending to the calls of nature, on an empty stomach. The dosage will depend on the health, age, diagnosed illness and digestive capacity of the patients.
The treatment lasts between eight to twelve days depending on the condition of the patient and the illness being treated. It is helpful in cleaning the intestine to remove amas and also beneficial for expelling of Amas-toxic materials from patient’s body through urine and stool.
