General principal of treatment for Kaphaja diseases:
They (diseases due to vitiated Kapha) should be treated with Katu Tikta Kashaya – herbs having pungent, bitter, astringent taste, Teekshna Ushna Rooksha – treatments and medicines having sharp, hot and dryness qualities Sveda – fomentation, sweating Vamana – emesis, vomiting therapy, Shiro Virechana – elimination of Doshas from the head by Nasya procedure, Vyayama – exercise etc, which should all contain materials having Anti- Slaismika properties. This is of course to be done with due regard to the dosage and season. Of all the devices stated above, emetic therapy is the treatment par excellence for the cure of diseases due to Kapha because immediately after entering the Amashaya – stomach, it strikes at the very root cause of the vitiation of Kapha and when it is overcome in the stomach, even the entire vitiated Kapha dwelling in other parts of the body is automatically alleviated. This can be likened to the withering away of paddy, barley, etc. for want of barrier of the cornfield (full of water) being broken.
