In ayurveda the term basti resembles to urinary bladder of animal by which the medicine is inserted in the human body. Basti is the treatment of panchakarma in which medicines are pushed in the human body through anus.
When the medicine is pushed in the urinary tract it is termed as Uttar basti.

Many times basti in ayurveda.As is compared with enemas in modern medicine. But comparison of both won’t be ethical as enemas are only given for evacuation of the rectum so that patient can defecate easily. Enema is given by soap water. But basti is given for multipurpose reasons. It is disorder curative, it can act as rejuvenative, and some basti are also given for bowel evacuation too. Hence bowel evacuation can be one of the purpose for which the basti is given.

Poorvakarma (Pre-Procedure) of Basti
Do thorough examination of the patient before administration of basti. Examination will help to give idea of what kind of oil or decoction should be used to give basti and also to decide the proportion of the medicine to be used. Once the patient is mentally and physically fit to take basti he should be given ext snehan and swedan. Swedan should be given mainly on lower abdomen and waist.

Pradankarma (Main Procedure) of Basti
After completion of snehan and swedan the patient is advised to sleep in left lateral position with left leg extended and right leg flexed close to the abdomen. The head of the patient should rest on his left hand. After giving proper position the oil is applied to the anus of the patient .Then the catheter which is on syringe or enema pot is slowly pushed in the rectum.Then the decoction or oil is slowly allowed to pass in the large intestine. See that the medicine administered in the basti is passing properly through the analcanal.While administering the medicine tell the patient to take deep breath. After completion of the basti administration slowly remove the catheter form the patient’s body. Tell him to remain in the same position for ½ minute. And then slowly tap on the buttocks of the patient. Then tell him to getup. The basti should come out of the patient’s body within the mentioned time.

Paschatkarma (Post Procedure) of Basti
Once the basti is out of the patient’s body he is advised to rest for a while and then given bath with warm water. And then he is given light diet.
