The following things were done-

  • Niruha Basti Chikitsa: for proper nourishment of the Majja Dhatu.
  • Anuvasana Basti: To pacify Vata Dosha.
  • Pizhichil: This is famous oil bath to settle Vata dosha through the largest organ of the body- skin. The process helped with balancing the Dryness of the body.
  • Navara Kizhi: To reduce the spasticity.
