- This is a type of Anagni Svedana.
- Upanaaha means poultice. It’s a local type of fomentation.
- Due to Ushn`a and Alpa Teekshn`a properties of this type of fomentation sweating occurs. Amla Rasa and Lavan`a Rasa have Ushn`a and Alpa Teekshn`a properties. So the drugs used for Upanaaha Sveda are always Amla and Lavan`a.
- Snigdha Upanaaha should be used in Apakva Na Ati Vriddha Amarmaga Valmika. (S. Chi. 20/52)
