Abstract

The principle of treatment is three-fold in Ayurveda as Nidana Parivarjana, Apakarshana (Shodhana) and Prakriti Vighata, this treatment given by Charaka in Krimi chapter. This treatment is given on the basis of Rogabala, Rugnabala, Kala, Vayu, Agni, etc. Among the Pancha Shodhana, Vamana, Virechana, Nasya and Raktamokshana are indicated in the Kushtha. Vamana is to be applied in the treatment of Kapha predominant Kushtha, Virechana and Raktamokshana in the treatment of Pitta predominant Kushtha. After Shodhana Shamana Chikitsa is indicated to subside the remaining Doshas.
