Chikitsaa Prakaara: Anagni Sveda Bahupaana

Prakaara Paribhaashaa:

  • This is a type of Anagni Svedana.
  • Bahupaana means drinking alcohol in a large quantity.

Chikitsaa Karma:

  • When alcohol is consumed in a large quantity i.e. more than advisable, the Drava Gun`a (liquidity) inside the body increases. Due to Vyavaayee and Vikaasee properties of Madya it expels Jaat`haraagnee out of the body and hence fomentation occurs.

  • Due to Madya intake, Pitta Dosha aggravates and this also results in sweating.
  • Madya has affinity for Meda DhaatuSveda is a Dhaatu Mala of Meda Dhaatu. Excessive Madya consumption leads to loosening of Meda Dhaatu and generation of Sveda from the liberated Drava / Kleda through the skin.
