Oleation leads and decides total outcome of The Bio purification therapy; Hence in this study standard guidelines are applied for performing internal oleation in an effective manner to avoid Ayoga (insufficient use) and Atiyoga (excessive use) of Snehana. For that we start and increased dose of lipids in an appropriate manner considering Agni (power of digestion) and Koshtha (nature of bowels) of patients.
