Akshi Tarpan Or Netra Tarpan - Ayurveda Eye Care

The eye is a critical sense organ of our body that allows us to see our surroundings. Any acute or chronic disorder affecting the eyes can affect the vision. 

 

Ayurveda, the Indian system of medicine, offers natural eye health care therapy called Akshitarpan or Netratarpan that helps to improve vision and relieve the symptoms of some eye diseases.

 

What is Akshitarpan or Netra Tarpan?

 

Akshi-tarpan, or Netra-tarpan, is an ayurvedic procedure in which a medicated ghee is retained over the eyes for a specified duration. Once the eyes are covered with the medicated ghee, the patient is asked to gently open and close the eyes several times before the ghee is removed. The ghee is considered to strengthen and nourish the eyes and helps to improve vision. The therapy also involves gently massage the structures surrounding the eyes, such as the head and the face, before the ghee is removed. The procedure of Akshitarpan is described beneath:

 

The Procedure Of Akshitarpan

 

Akshitarpan involves three stages: Purva Karma (Pre-treatment procedure), Pradhana Karma (Main Treatment) and Paschata Karma (Post-treatment procedure). 

 

1. Purva Karma (Pre-treatment procedure) 

The pre-treatment involves the preparation of the patient for the therapy. During Purva Karma, the patient is examined to understand his or her Prakriti (the basic constitution) and the Vikriti (morbidity or the disease state). The eyes are examined to evaluate the vision and the signs of disease. This helps to decide the treatment line-up and the materials and medications that may be needed for the therapy. The patient's eligibility for the Akshitarpan treatment is also assessed during Purva Karma.

 

Preparation for the treatment:

 

The materials and medications needed for the treatment are collected prior to the procedure. They include the medicated ghee or supernatant layer of medicated ghee, depending on the disorder to be treated.

 

Immediate Purva Karma:

 

The immediate Purva karma is a part of the pre-treatment for Akshitarpan that is carried out just before the therapy if a person has gone through the whole Panchakarma Detox, which involves:

 

  • Kaya Shuddhi: detoxifying the body through therapeutic emesis and purgation
  • Shiro-Shuddhi is a head-cleansing measure for purifying sense organs and the head.
  • Preparing the medicated ghee: The ghee used for Akshitarpan is in a liquid form and lukewarm. The ghee is heated in a bowl, which is later kept inside a big vessel with hot water. The ghee can be removed once it is heated to the required temperature.
  • Fomentation: before the treatment, a gentle fomentation of the eyes is performed using a cloth dipped in warm water.

 

2. Pradhana Karma (Main Treatment):

The Akshitarpan treatment is preferably done in a season that is neither too hot nor too cold. The treatment is conducted in the morning or evening. 

 

The treatment begins by allowing the patient to lie down on the back with proper neck support. Then, an Akshitarpan cabinet or ring is constructed around the eye by placing the rings of flour over the eye sockets. The place where the rings meet the eye sockets must be sealed with wet flour to prevent the ghee from leaking or escaping during the process.

 

The Akshitarpan ring is filled with lukewarm medicated ghee. The ayurvedic therapist constantly manages the temperature of the ghee so it is not too hot or cold. The patient is instructed to keep their eyes closed while the ghee is poured into the ring. Later, the patient is advised to open and close the eyes repeatedly. This allows the inner parts of the eyes to come in contact with the ghee.

 

The medicament is left in place for a specified duration, depending on the disorder to be treated. For example, according to Ayureda texts, it is kept in place for about 30 seconds for treating the diseases affecting the eyelids and for about 3 minutes for treating the diseases affecting the sclera.

 

3. Paschata Karma (Post-treatment procedure)

After retaining the ghee for the stipulated period, it is drained out by making a hole or a small opening at the bottom of the ring. Then, the eye is rinsed thoroughly with lukewarm water. Following the procedure, the patient is advised to avoid exposure to strong winds, bright lights, mirrors, and other luminous objects.

 

 

How does Akshitarpan or Netratarpan work?

 

The medicated ghee used in Akshitarpan is believed to have the ability to penetrate through the body's channels. Hence, when applied to the eyes, it aims to reach deeper layers and cleanse the external and deeper ophthalmic structures. 

 

The medicated ghee possesses lipophilic properties, facilitating the transportation of the medication into the cells as the cell membranes comprise lipids. Hence, the therapeutic action of this procedure occurs at the cellular level.

 

This phospholipid nature of the ghee also allows for the entry of the medication into the eyes through the cornea. The corneal epithelial layer is permeable to the lipid-soluble substances; hence, it allows the lipid-soluble ghee to cross the corneal epithelium to reach the inner layers of the eyes.

 

This enhances the action of ghee by allowing better absorption of the medication through the corneal surface.

 

 

Traditional Benefits of Akshitarpan or Netratarpan:

 

After the Akshitarpan procedure, the patient may experience an improvement in vision and relief from the ophthalmic symptoms, which may be traditionally assessed through the following signs:

 

  • Clarity of vision
  • Improved tolerance to light
  • The feeling of lightness in the eyes
  • Better sleep
  • Feeling refreshed upon awakening
  • Restoration of the normal colours of different parts of the eye, such as a clear, white colour of the sclera and a light pink colour of the conjunctiva
  • Improved perception of the colours
  • Ease in making eye movements, including blinking.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.
