, or Varisara, means "conical cleansing" or "gesture of the seashell" because water passes through the digestive canal, like through an empty shell.
The water absorbed by the mouth passes through the stomach, which, by the body's internal movements, passes through the whole intestine, thereby cleansing it from
impurities. The treatment would continue until the water comes out as clear as to when it entered.
Preparation for the cleansing of the entire digestive tract
Heat the saltwater to body temperature with a salt concentration of five to six grams per litre. It is slightly less than the salt level in blood plasma (a small tablespoon per litre of water). The water must be salty, as the absence of salt would allow the mucous
membrane to absorb the water through osmosis, and the body will excrete it as urine and not as intended. If you find the water too salty, you can reduce the salt concentration to make the water more suitable for you.
Performance of Shankh Prakshalana
The procedure for cleansing the entire digestive tract works best during the morning when the stomach is empty. The whole process, as practice shows, takes an hour and a half. However, it may take up to 45-60 minutes as your skills improve.
