Tharpanam

This one is advised to those suffering from problems of the eyes. Ghee medicated with Ayurvedic ingredients is kept on the eyes from 15 to 30 minutes. To ensure that the ghee doesn’t spill to the other parts of the face or body, a paste of ayurvedic leaves is used to create a boundary. It strengthens the optic tissue in addition to relieving stress, puffiness and cures corneal problems.

Lepanam

Lepanam cures the pain that is caused due to inflammation in the body. ‘Lepam’ is a paste that is created by mixing medicines along with herbal liquids that are then applied to the affected parts of the body. The paste is used as a scrub to smoothen the skin, restore blood circulation, treat skin disorders, pain management and relieve aches. The treatment basically facilitates the body’s abilities to heal itself, which is essential with inflammatory disease.

In some cases, medical oils are poured through the nasal nostrils to treat nasal problems, which are divided into three types:

  1. Virechana Nasyam – use of strong medicines to clear the sinuses and head region by expelling the accumulated waste
