Vasti (Wuh-sthee) enema is the grand finale to the Panchakarma journey but before we ride off into the sunset, some pesky details.
1st day of Vasti : Medicated Oil Enema. Hold it for as long as you can.
2nd day of Vasti : Herbal Decoction Enema, in a large quantity. Go as soon as you have an urge.
3rd day of Vasti : Two Enemas, one medicated oil one in the morning and one in the evening with a large quantity of herbal decoction. Need I say more?
4th day of Vasti : The final oil enema, to end all enemas.
The Enemas at the Retreat are done under a physician’s supervision with two attendants to massage the tummy, back and the nether regions. All equipment is sterilized and precautions taken to make it a pleasant experience.
My experience in retrospect:
Um, I had never done anything like this but I am glad I did. I had a good night’s sleep after a long time of not sleeping. I felt like my old self, singing and dancing with my little girl.
It was time to say good bye to the retreat and all the amazing physicians, management and staff I had gotten to know. It is to give them thanks and to recognize what great work they do, that I have made it my mission to take more of us there and experience the transformation I did.
