  4. 4. Rectal Administration• The rectal route often is useful when oral ingestion is precluded because the patient is unconscious or when vomiting is present - a situation particularly relevant to young children.• Approximately 50% of the drug that is absorbed from the rectum will bypass the liver; the potential for hepatic first-pass metabolism thus is less than that for an oral dose.• However, rectal absorption often is irregular and incomplete, and many drugs can cause irritation of the rectal mucosa. 4
  5. 5. Practice • Ayurveda suggests many methods of disease and healthy managements from ages, using the naturally available adopted • It offers Oral route, Trans dermal route, Trans Rectal route, etc • One has to practice for perfection understanding methods properly • Does Ayurveda requires any adoptions and updates in the systems according to the present technology or not is a debate • Change is Unavoidable under any circumstances 5
  6. 6. Tunes of Trans Rectal route Vasti or Basti• The pronunciation of the Technical term itself is first problem• Many times not undergone the concepts• Following colloquially• Not having touch with Instruments / Mechanism /Drug qualities /etc 6
  7. 7. 7 steps to success1. Prepare patient (Physically / Mentally)2. Follow indications3. Check the Ingredients (Contents)4. Prepare medicine methodically5. Find proper Instruments6. Standardize the entire situation7. Administration (Time /Procedure) 7

  9. 9. • Enema = An injection of a liquid through the anus to stimulate evacuation; sometimes used for diagnostic purposes• Many varieties of nomenclature based upon the site of administration – Shirovasti, Urovasti, Kativasti, Uttaravasti, Vasti = Niruha, Anuvasana 9
  10. 10. Preparation & Understanding patient (Physically / Mentally) Pareekshya Bhava (C.Su.15/5; C.Ni.3/6; Su.Chi.38/91-92)1. The patient subjected for examination for assessment of Kaala, Bala, Dosha and Disease in detail.2. Later looking at the Vasti Dravya Bala the quantity and time of administration is decided. 10
  11. 11. • In this course of preparation – – In Kaala - Rutu kaala, Vayo kaala, Vyadhi Kriyakaala, Ahara kaala – In Bala – Rogi bala (Physical /psychological), Roga Bala, Aushadha Bala – In Dosha - sansargatwam – Vruddhi, Ksheena, Urdhwa /Adho gati, etc – In Vyadhi - Rogamarga - Shakha /Kosta/Marma, Swatantra / Paratantra, Vata vyadhi, Vata sthaana janya vyadhi, Shakha /Kosta janya vyadhi, Pureeshaadhana / srotas janya vyadhi, Shodhanaarha vyadhi, Brumhanadi kramoyogam 11
  12. 12. • Based upon the site/ Organ Vasti – Pakwashaya, Mootrashaya, garbhashaya• Based upon the Drug content / material – Nirooha, Anuvasana• Based upon the Quantity of the material – Sneha, Anuvasana, Matravasti• Based upon the function – Shodhana, Shamana• Based upon the number of administrations – Karma, Kala, Yoga• Based upon the utility – Yapana, Siddha, Piccha, Rakta, Prasruta Yogiki, etc• Based upon the Karmukata (purpose /intentions) – Vajikarana, Brumhana, Lekhana, Vandhtwahara, Teekshna, Mrudu, Krimighna, Chakshushya, Malabhedana, etc Vasti classification 12

  20. 20. Sequence Importance• The salt is granular needs grinding• Honey is monosaccharide adds with salt to become amalgam• The amalgam facilitates bonding with – alkaloid bounded lipoproteins of Sneha (Oil /Ghee, etc) to become free ionized negatively charged lipoproteins• These free lipid soluble alkaloid added amalgam freely mixed to become an isotonic solution which is a mucosal barrier 20
  21. 21. Vasti quantity?• Vasti quantity has to fixed not just by the age factor as told in Samhita but require karshya /Sthoulya, Shareera Dairghya / Pramana, Kosta krura/ Mardavatwa, Aushadha Mardava / Teekshnatwa and Ushna /Sheeta guna along with Aushadha Dravya veerya / Bhajasa Guna samparka• The quantity 1200 ml told for a Purusha of Susruta told 84 Angula = 7 feet – i.e. each Inch of height requires 14.28 ml – According to the height of patient one has to decide the dose of vasti. – i.e. 5 feet 6 inches patient requires 66 x 14.28 = 942.48 ml 21
  22. 22. Shape of abdomen for Vasti quantity fixation Apple Vs Pear shape Apart from this another point of interest is theshape of the abdomen in patient also requires for the assessment of Vasti quantity• Colonic flexures in Apple are wide open and facilitates easy movements and rapid evacuation• Pear colonic flexures are acute angled requires full pressure and that restricts the evacuation 22

  25. 25. • Unctuous rectum (Tailakta gatram) facilitates the insertion of nozzle• 3” nozzle is administered inside anus• A regulated forceful squeeze of Putaka helps the Vasti Dravya to reach high colon• An anti clock wise massage on abdomen facilitate the reverse peristalsis for – Na Ati Bhukta patient• Wait for the muhurtha (48 minutes) for evacuation• An clock wise massage on abdomen facilitate the active peristalsis• If not evacuated after 2 muhurtha, forcible evacuation required• If Vata increases – Anuvasana is required or Sneha orally also administered Vasti Adana 25
