‘Virechana’ or methodical purgation is one among the Panchakarma, the treatment modalities meant for internal cleansing and rejuvenation in Ayurveda. Virechana is the most efficient way of instantly pacifying aggravated ‘pitta’ in the system. Avipathi choorna is a widely popular virechana drug.
The term ‘Avipathi’ denotes the absolute safety of the drug. It is a powder that causes controlled purgation and is recommended for use even in children and geriatric patients.
