Method of Virechana Karma 

Before administration of Go-Ghrita, all the registered patients were given Virechana. For this purpose, patients who met inclusion criteria and gave consent for the Virechana were administered Trikatu Churna for the first 3 days for Deepana and Pachana(stimulation of digestion) in the dose of 2 g twice in a day with lukewarm water after meal. On the 4th day, after assessing the status of the patients, Cow Ghrita[7] in the dose of 40 ml was given in the early morning on empty stomach with lukewarm water. The patients were observed forSneha Jeerna Lakhshana (proper digestion of Ghrita) and accordingly for the next 5–7 days, the dose of Ghrita was given in increasing pattern till the patients achieved proper Snehana (internal oleation) features. After completion of internal Snehana for the next 3 days, whole-body massage with Bala Taila along with Vashpa Swedana was done daily once in the morning.[8] During this period, patients were kept on a normal diet with precautions, to avoid excessive oil, or heavy food items. On the day ofVirechana, after massage and fomentation in the morning, Virechana Yogaof Haritakyadi Yoga was given.

F.), Rajani (Curcuma longa Linn.), Pippali (Piper longumLinn.) and Shunthi (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) was taken. About 2 g ofGuda (jaggery) was added to it. To this half glass of water was added and heated until it was lukewarm. This was given to patients on empty stomach.

Thereafter, according to the type of Shuddhi, at the end of Virechanaprocedure, 3, 5 and 7 days of post-Virechana dietary regimen for revival were advised which included Peya (thin gruel of rice), Vilepi (thick gruel of rice), Akrita Yusha (nonprocessed soup of vegetables/pulses) and KritaYusha (processed with Ghrita, salt and pepper, soup of vegetables/pulses) in a sequential pattern.[10]
