In Ayurveda, Kshara means a caustic substance obtained from the ashes of medicinal plants. They are alkaline in nature and are used to treat various anorectal conditions. Kshara karma is a milder and superior procedure that replaces all surgical methods and effectively treats the condition affecting the anal area with less chance for reoccurrence. Kshara Karma is a safe established procedure that is minimally invasive without any side effects.
The whole plant of Apamarga is collected, dried up and burnt to obtain ashes that is mixed with 6 times of water and filtered multiple times to attain a clean and clear liquid. The liquid is evaporated to 1/3rd of its original quantity to get a mild concentrate of Kshara. For a moderate Kshara, some grams of limestone is added to the filtrate solution and continuously stirred and evaporated to 1/3rd of its original quantity. For a highly concentrate Kshara, this is further heated up with Chitraka Kalka to attain a thick solution. The kshara is classified upon their concentration level and is used accordingly.
Procedure for Kshara Karma
The patient administered with a dose of local anesthesia to relax the muscles and to put in a sleep like state so that no pain and discomfort is experienced during the procedure. A lubricated slit proctoscope is passed into the anal canal and Kshara is applied over the internal pile mass to turns color and burning of it. Next, the pile mass is washed with lemon juice to neutralize the Kshara and a rectal pack is applied.
This mode of treatment helps for quick healing and reduces the chance of recurrence. The treatment cuts and drains the pus from fistula in ano and fissure in ano or hemorrhoids and also preserves the continence of anal canal.
