Chikitsaa Prakaara: Anagni Sveda – Upanaaha

Prakaara Paribhaashaa:

  • This is a type of Anagni Svedana.
  • Upanaaha means poultice. It’s a local type of fomentation.

Chikitsaa Karma:

  • 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.

Other Description:

  • Snigdha Upanaaha should be used in Apakva Na Ati Vriddha Amarmaga Valmika. (S. Chi. 20/52)
