Meghna P P.

Abstract
Vasthi (Rectal/urogenital route of medicine administration) is the most important one among the Panchakarmas (purificatory therapy). Susruthacharya describes Vasthi as effective in disorders due to derangement of Vatha, Pitha, Kapha and Raktha.( Humors of the body-functional adaptation of five great elements) It is called Ardhachikitsa or half of the whole therapeutic measures. Utharavasthi, a division of Vasthi karma is specifically indicated for genitourinary diseases and hence in Sthreeroga chikitsa(Gynecology), it is of utmost importance. Almost all Acharyas have mentioned Utharavasthi among Vasthikarma, but detailed description is not available. There are discrepancies in classical ayurvedic text books regarding the dosage, type and the method of administration of Utharavasthi.This is an attempt to compile the data regarding Utharavasthi scattered in the text books.This paper also tries to compare the Utharavasthi procedure mentioned in the classical texts with the current practice.A literary survey of Utharavasthi was done. The data collected were sorted and arranged under different sub headings.The discrepancies in the samhitas regarding this procedure were identified.Utharavasthi when used appropriately is a solution to many genito urinary problems. This article may help the physicians to acquaint with the procedure of Utharavasthi.

Key words: utharavasthi , vasthi, sthreeroga chikitsa
