Nirūha (निरूह) refers to “purgative”, as mentioned in verse 4.29-31 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] If (a patient) has been debilitated by medicine, strengthening (him) gradually by food such as rice, sixty-day-old rice, wheat, mung-beans, meat, and ghee—(which), in combination with cardiac and stomachic remedies, (is) promotive of appetite and digestion—as well as by inunctions, massages, baths, and purgative and lubricant enemas [viz., nirūha-sneha-basti] (is) wholesome. Thus he recovers comfort, intensity of all the fires, faultlessness of intellect, colour, and senses, potency, (and) longness of life”.
Note: nirūha-sneha-basti (“purgative and lubricant enemas”) (ef. I 19.2) has been paraphrased by drag-po ’jam rtsi mas-btaṅ [v.l. gtoṅ] “enemas (made) of strong (and) mild fluids”.Source: Ancient Science of Life: Yogaśataka of Pandita Vararuci
Nirūha (निरूह) or Nirūhabasti refers to “decoction enema” and represents one of the five topics of the Pañcakarma section, and is dealt with in the 10th century Yogaśataka written by Pandita Vararuci.—It describes Pañcakarma as one separate branch from Kāyacikitsā. This may be the only book which describes Pañcakarma as an independent branch. In Pañcakarma section, there is one stanza and preparation described for each Karma. [...] One yoga for Nirūha Basti is described.
