Abstract

Introduction: Deepana and Pachana (appetizer-digestives) have equal significance in both Shodhana (bioPurification) and Shamana treatment (Pacification Treatment) modalities of Ayurveda. Deepana and Pachana Karma play an important role as Purvakarma of Shodhana (bio-purification) procedures. Purvakarma (preoperative procedure) refers to the preparation of body for the Panchakarma therapies and it is crucial for the body to achieve the complete benefits of therapies.

Objective: To understand the importance of proper Deepana and Pachana therapy(appetizer-digestives) in
Panchakarma.

Review Method: For this review article, various Ayurvedic texts- Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Astang Haridayam with Chakrapani and Arundatta Teeka are studied. Peer-reviewed clinical studies, review articles, various websites etc. are considered.

Discussion and conclusion: Deepana Pachana (appetizer-digestives) can complete in one day or over many days, till Nirama Awastha (without ama condition) occurs.
