Dhauti means washing or cleansing, and refers to a process that purifies the entire alimentary canal, including the mouth, the food pipe, the stomach, the intestines, and the rectum.
There are different Dhauti techniques, here we will be discussing Kunjal Kriya.
It is the process of washing the food pipe and cleansing the stomach. Even after we have digested the food some small particles of food might still be sticking to the lining of the stomach. This is called Ama in ayurveda. Kunjal kriya helps us to remove these toxins from the stomach and the food pipe. It is practiced in the morning on an empty stomach.
Before You Start
*If you drink water on an empty stomach, it will pass into the duodenum and on into the upper intestinal tract quite rapidly; in a matter of minutes, so it is recommended to drink the water very fast without any break in between and then vomit it out, hence not letting the salty water to pass through the stomach and have a diarrhea effect. (if there is more food in the stomach along with water then it take more time for the water to pass through)
