Ayurveda believes in healing holistically; yes, it benefits each and every part of our body. When we talk about the therapy vasti, it means that the toxins that are there in our body should be eliminated right away. When toxins are released, many ailments are cured. The soul and the senses are rejuvenated and refreshed. When it comes to our body parts, how can we ignore our eyes? They are very precious and beautiful and we simply can’t live without them.
Sometimes, due to lifestyle changes, we tend to ignore our eyes. In such situations, Chandigarh Ayurved Centre recommends Netra vasti i.e. oil bath for eyes. It’s a part of Panchakarma therapy and is highly advantageous for the eyes. In this procedure, medicated ghee or herbal oil is kept in your eyes for a stipulated time frame. This therapy is a special one and in this, oils or medicated decoction is used.
Our therapist will wash your eyes with a medical mixture or herbal eyes, which is why it is termed as oil bath. In this technique of cleansing, our therapist will constantly keep pouring oils in a continuous stream over the eyes and the process continues for over half an hour. You will be given a comfortable position. Eyes are washed with Triphala water. It is said that Triphala water is very beneficial for all kinds of eye problems.
NETRA VASTI PROCEDURE
In Ayurveda, Netra Vasti is counted among the best purification procedures. Also, it rejuvenates the eye in the best possible way. It is rightly said that eyes are the soul’s window, which is why it is very much important in Ayurveda. Also, it is said that eyes are the main site for alochakka Pitta (A pitta dosha).
You can get the procedure done both for curing purposes as well as for preventive purposes. Even though people are healthy, they get this procedure done for protecting eyes against degeneration. With aging, there are eyesight problems and they surely need to improve. Many people get netra vasti done for conditions like dark circles, eye injury, painful eyes, swollen eyes, blurring vision, conjunctivitis, glaucoma, squint, eyelash problems and dry eyes.
Good strength is given to the nerves of the eye as well as ocular muscles; eyes are properly nourished and circulation of blood is enhanced there.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED?
Before you opt for Netra Vasti, you might have to go through procedures like purgation and emesis. You need to lie on your back i.e. in droni position. Our therapist will perfectly massage your face, eyes and head. Then, a tank of flour paste is used for making a proper frame around the eyes. After everything is set up, our therapist will pour in medicated oil or decoction in the tank. You are supposed to close your eyes. After this has been done sufficiently, our therapist will ask you to open your eyes again for just 5 days.
For maximum results, you need to repeat this process for around 7 days.
The duration of the therapy varies from person to person. Ideally, a 15 to 20 minute procedure should work wonders. The best time of doing so is after sunset. The therapist will also suggest you to avoid bright things and sun after the procedure.
Even the medications used in the procedure are very much different from person to person. Commonly, Triphala ghrita or maha triphala ghrita is used.
