Nasyam -Nasal passages are cleansed and rejuvenated by administering herbal oils or herbal remedies through the nostrils.

Vamana - This is a process of controlled vomiting or purging, called medicated emesis in which herbal medicines are given. This treatment removes the toxins accumulated in the upper body parts like the diaphragm and respiratory tract.

Virechanam - Through medically induced purgation, the lower part of the gut is cleansed from excessive toxic and metabolic waste(pitta) using laxative medicines.

Vasthi - Warm Ayurvedic herbal oils or decoctions are administered to induce enema, for the elimination of toxins accumulated in the intestines and colon.
