Raktamokshana Ayurvedic Treatment

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine that has been around for thousands of years. Its benefits are not just limited to healing but also focus on purifying the body. Ayurvedic treatments for purifying blood have been used for centuries to cleanse the blood and remove toxins from the body. It was initially used as a part of the daily routine, but now one can do it at home.

Raktamokshana treatment in Pune is one of Pachakarma’s five purifying procedures. It eliminates toxic blood from the body. Thus, Raktamokshan treatment purges the body of vitiated blood.

This therapy treats diseases such as hypertension, skin disease, gout, acne, obesity, and heart disease well. It is a unique treatment in traditional ayurvedic medicine. It is a detoxifying therapy that preserves health and treats specific disorders. The treatment entails expelling contaminated blood. Consequently, the method purifies Raktadhatu.

These elements contribute to or cause the presence of toxins in the blood.

Excessive intake of salt or sour, consumption of alcohol, unctuous and heavy foods, consumption of stale food, overeating, sleeping directly after a meal, exposure to excessive heat/sun, and stress are all risk factors for peptic ulcer disease. In addition, rakta is naturally vitiated in the Sharad (fall) ritu.

Unclean Rakta induces numerous ailments. Among them are akshiraga (redness of eyes), vatashonita (Gouty arthritis), asyagandhika (bad odour from mouth), gulma (tumour), raktapitta (epistaxis), vaivarnya (skin discolouration), visarpa (herpes zoster), mukhapaka (oral ulcers), daha (burning sensation), etc. 


Raktamokshana is one treatment in which vitiated blood is expelled from the body, which aids in curing the illness.

Raktamokshana Ayurvedic Treatment.

Raktamokshana ayurvedic treatment is crucial to Panchakarma’s clinical therapeutic use in treating many significant diseases. It is an efficient blood purification technique in which small quantities of contaminated blood is removed in a regulated manner to neutralise accumulated poisons. Raktamokshan comes to the rescue when there is severe rakta and pitta toxicity with herbs or other methods.

Although Raktamokshana is the most limited of the five primary procedures, it enables a speedy and often dramatic relief of symptoms in some acute diseases where there is no time for the other phases of Panchakarma, such as Purvakarma, etc. Raktamokshana can be helpful.

Raktamokshana treatment in Pune helps treat allergies, sciatica, gout, tonsillitis, migraine, eczema, psoriasis, acne, Lyme disease, glaucoma, liver & spleen disorders, osteoarthritis, filariasis, frozen shoulder, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic wounds, varicose veins, and non-healing ulcers.


Based on various circumstances, blood is drawn through the following techniques.

Anushastra Visravana is the first type and contains three methods: when blood is vitiated by Vata dosha, shring (horn) is used for bloodletting; when blood is vitiated by Pitta dosha, jalauka (leeches) is employed; and when Kapha dosha is present, experts utilise alabu (gourd).

Shringa: The horn, or Shringa of a cow, is used in vata dosha vitiation, as the classics describe the properties of a cow’s horn as hot, sweet, and viscous. These characteristics oppose the Vata quality. Shringa, when used for raktamokshana, can draw blood from a ten-angula radius (1 angula is equal to the widest part of the thumb).

Leeches: The source of life for ‘Leech’ is water; as their habitat is Jal or water, ‘Leech’ is referred to as ‘Jaloka’. Jalauka is utilised in pitta dosha because its qualities are antithetical to pitta, being chilly, sweet, and viscous. Jalauka can draw blood from a single hasta (palm). Two types of Jalokas are most prevalent.

Alabu: Alabu is pungent, harsh, and sharp and is used to treat Kapha dosha imbalance. With alabu, it utilises twelve anguli for bloodletting (1 finger breadth).

When there is vitiation by two or all three doshas, the second method, Shastra Visravana, employs either Pracchanna (scarification) or Siravyadha (vein puncture) to allow the blood to escape. Siravyadha (venous/vein puncture) can purify the full body, whereas Pracchanna is used to expel blood from a region of one anguli through many incisions.

Due to their simplicity and accessibility, jaloukavacharana (leech therapy) and siravyadha (venous puncture) are the most prevalent raktamokshana techniques. In many ways, these are helpful based on the predominant dosha and the area and site of vitiation. Practitioners suggest Jalauka (leech application) for deep-seated pathology; we also recommend Siravyadha for generalised rakta vitiation, and Shringa (horn) and Alabu -if the pathology is superficial.

Raktamokshana ayurvedic treatment is a part of the Panchakarma procedure, a unique and potent procedure requiring the supervision of a medically educated team. It is performed uniquely for each individual, considering their constitution and medical condition. It would necessitate vigilant monitoring at every interval; thus, we offer one of the best.
