The official name for what we are talking about here is Anuvasana Basti. Which simply means enemas with medicated oils, tonics and/or herbal milks, and they work a treat!
What are Enemas?
In our modern world of fast ‘food’ and imbalanced diets, is it any wonder that the use of enemas is on the rise? Basically, an enema is the insertion of liquid into the lower bowel via the rectum, in an effort to dislodge all the faeces that doesn’t want to exit of its’ own accord. Hold the liquid for as long as you can (up to half an hour) then expel. Don’t worry if you can’t hold for that long because even a few minutes on the first time gets things going. Then follow up with another with the aim of holding it longer.
Enemas are one of the classical detoxification (Panchakarma) therapies and indicated for use in all Ayurvedic vata disorders.
Enemas are best performed when a person is not suffering from things like breathing trouble or coughing and you must not have any complications of a gastrointestinal-type. Enemas are NOT recommended after the 7th month of pregnancy either.
When Asthapana Basti is given to those who are physically weak or debilitated, or in the presence of hunger, thirst or fatigue, the vasti remedies will produce further irritation and may even be deadly.
I recommend always having a support person nearby while having an enema, especially the first few times. The effect is usually sudden, very effective and can cause you to become faint.
People NOT Suited To Having Enemas
Each person’s physical situation is different and those that are unsuited to having an enema would be:
– Pandu – anemia,
– Kamala – jaundice
– Meha – diabetes, urinary tract disorders
– Peenasa – rhinitis
– Niranna – on empty stomach

In addition, those that are suffering from artificial poison, goiter, filariasis or scrofula should also avoid having an enema. REF – ‘Niruha basti Panchakarma method, benefits, side effects, management’
