Keywords:Vamana, Akanthpana dravya, Ikshurasa, Godugdha, Vyapada, Utkleshana
Before initiating vamana process, it is suggested to serve yavagu at onset followed by various food articles like Ikshurasa (cane sugar juice), mamsarasa (mutton soup), godugdha (cow’s milk) etc for akanthapana (stomach full) in sukumara (tender/delicate) and other durbala patients. Generally godugdha or ikshurasa are used in practice for akanthapana. But does the use of different food articles for akanthpana make any difference in vamana process? To get some idea about the possible changes after using the various food articles for akanthapana, ikshurasa and godugdha were used in 19 patients each during vamana process and the results were analyzed. Utkleshana of kapha and pitta will be more with Godugdha as akanthapanartha dravya. Samyaka yoga was observed more in ikshurasa group. Appearance of various vyapadas was found more in Godugdha group and then along with that other observations also observed.
