  • Langhana

The word Langhana literally means ‘fasting’. It does not mean starving, but it means consuming light foods. The goal of the Langhana therapy is to lighten the body to bring balance to the health of the body. If the consumption of glucose is decreased, the glycogen, then fat, and in the last stage, protein is broken down for the supply of glucose to the tissue, which is similar to the view of Ayurveda. It is a successful treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis.

  • Choorna Kizhi

Choorna Kizhi is a sweat-inducing Ayurvedic therapy. This treatment involves making Ayurvedic herb powders into a potali and applying them to the body until the person sweats a lot. It helps in cleansing of body from toxins. A one-degree increase in temperature induces sweating which is ten times the basal rate of body heat generation. During swedana karma, the body temperature rises by more than 2-3 degrees Celsius. The above-mentioned mechanism causes greater perspiration. It causes more vitiated materials to be excreted through skin pores. It is a type of thermotherapy in which heat is applied for the purpose of increasing vasodilation, decreasing viscosity, changing nerve conduction, increasing metabolic rate

  • Choorna vasti

Vasti is the administration of medicine through the anal route. choorna vasti contains vaiswanara choorna and water. Because of their huge volume, vasti dravya may stimulate peristalsis or promote osmotic retention of water in the colon.Rectal veins empty the lower rectum and enter the inferior vena cava before bypassing the liver and joining the systemic circulation.The bioavailability of a medicine is also affected by rapid breakdown by the liver during the first pass or by the gut wall.As a result, even if a medicine is effectively absorbed when administered orally, it may be inefficient due to significant first-pass metabolism. When first-pass metabolism is reduced, medication bioavailability increases. Absorption can be increased by increasing vascularity.

Rheumatoid arthritis

This can cause degeneration in the joint leading to a loss of joint shape and alignment.
