Mode of Action of Virechana Karma

Virechana drugs carry out therapeutic purgation due to their prabhava (potency). As these drugs are having Jala and Prithvi Mahabhuta dominancy, they have a natural tendency to go down, and thus they can help in the induction of purgation.

It has already been described that the waste products wherever present in the body, in extracellular, intracellular, or in plasma, can be brought into the intestine to maintain the homogeneity from where it can be eliminated from the body by the action of the intestine, which is induced by Virechana drug.

The active ingredients of the given medicine will stimulate the mucosal membrane and changes the normal permeability of the mucosal lining temporarily, due to which exudation of morbid impurities which were transferred from cellular level to gut level with the help of snehana and swedana karma is expelled out through anal route.
