Virechana is also known as medical purgation. It is one of the Panchakarmas. Its clinical trials have been carried out for bronchial asthma,[1] psoriasis,[2][3] diabetes.[4][5] But no conclusive evidence has been found out that it works. According to Ayurvedic claims, Virechana is the best line of management for skin disorders[6]
