In western medical practice, enemas are mostly used to help in cases of chronic constipation and are especially useful when a patient has to spend a lot of time in bed. But in Ayurveda, they are used to fully expel toxins that have gathered within the colon as a result of Abhangya and Swedana treatments

After Vasti treatment it is time to rest and allow your body to regain its strength and balance.
