Vamana is one among the panchakarma treatment aimed to expel increased kapha dosha out of the body. When kapha dosha gets increased, it causes certain types of diseases- such as cold, cough etc,. But if it has increased to large extent it can’t be controlled by internal medicines itself, and if it has moved from its natural place to other places, then it needs be expelled out of the body. To expel it out, first the kapha dosha needs to be forcefully brought from the extremities and different organs into the stomach and then vomiting is induced.
