Dhanyamla Dhara is a special type of Dhara treatment with an infusion prepared from some cereals (Dhanya) and vinegar (Amla) obtained from citrus fruits. Navara rice, horse gram, millet, sliced citrus fruits and dried ginger are bundled separately in pieces of linen and then immersed in a large pot of water. The water is then boiled for a specific period during which the extracts from the bundles leach into the pot to make vinegar. Dhara therapy with this liquid is called Dhanyamladhara.
As in any other Dhara, this liquid too is poured in a continual stream over the patient’s body in a rhythmic way through a special vessel for 1 hour daily for 7 to 14 days. It is a remedy for hemiplegia paralysis rheumatic complaints and vata predominant diseases etc.
