The ancient practice (its Sanskrit name translates to "five actions") works to clear toxins from the body and build agni, or digestive fire, through special foods and teas, self-massage, and intensive purgation therapies, including enema treatments, the clearing of nasal passages, and, in some cases, even therapeutic vomiting and bloodletting.
