Vaman is specifically beneficial in Kapha Dosha and to some extent in Pitta Dosha disorders. It helps to expel the vitiated and aggravated Kapha Dosha through emesis. It helps to improve digestive power and enhance metabolism. It helps to improve strength, nourishment, immunity, and longevity as a long-term benefit.

How it works

The whole process of Vaman helps to remove the vitiated Kapha
dosha and excess Pitta Dosha during the process. The organs
in the upper abdomen and chest are prone to get affected by
Kapha Dosha and hence Vaman acts to expel Kapha Dosha from
this area. It also helps to reduce the toxins and regularize
Kapha Dosha activities.
