This is a type of Anagni Svedana.
Upanaaha means poultice. Its 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)
