Blood Purification Therapy – Raktamokshana

Raktamokshana
Blood Purification Therapy - Raktamokshana 2

Raktamokshana Definition

Raktamokshana is an effective blood purification therapy, in which carefully controlled removal of small quantities of blood is conducted to neutralise accumulated Pitta toxins of many blood-borne diseases. This is because it decreases the quantum of enhanced Pitta dosha and thus the diseases caused by Pitta are also relieved.

Raktamokshana Benefits

It has been specified in the Ayurvedic text that this Ayurvedic treatment of Panchakarma works both as curative as well as preventive therapy. As in all Ayurvedic medicine, the Basti Karma is regarded as a partial or even a complete treatment method, similarly, in the Ayurveda surgery texts, Raktamokshana is considered as the partial or complete treatment in itself. It is used to treat the following:

Pigmentation, Scars, Wound, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Pericarditis, Gouty arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, Atopic dermatitis, Pain, Uremia Inflammations, Allergies, Skin disorders such as Eczema, Allergic Dermatitis, Tonsillitis, Sciatica, Abscess.

Raktamokshana Usage
Raktamokshana is rarely used in Ayurveda today, although it still exists as one of the five primary treatments that form the basis of Panchakarma.
