Introduction: Normal pitta maintains normal hepatic metabolism. Serum bilirubin and calcium levels are associated with hepatic function. Vamanam and Sweda Karma increase agni, which in turn affects the liver metabolism. The raised agni after sweda and vamanam increase the metabolic activity of the body. Today's quality of food and dietary habits, lifestyle, and changes in seasons are often the cause of saturation of toxins in the body, which according to Ayurveda are malas and aam, and these are also the cause for vitiation of the doshas. When the body becomes free from this malas, aam (toxic materials), and vitiated doshas, a state of good health can be achieved. Ayurveda has the best therapies in the form of Panchakarma to make the body free from these disease-causing factors. Aim: Is to study on the role of vamanam on serum bilirubin and calcium levels.
