Reviving of a Fainted Individual

If an individual has fainted due to varmam attack, he or she first should be diagnosed by a Varmaani (Varmam Doctor / Varmam Master / Varmam Asan). Varmaani should start the diagnostics by observing the color of cornea and the color of the teeth of the patient. Then varmaani checks the flow in Vata, Pita, and Kapha nadis. If he is satisfied with the flows in these nadis, varmaani should proceed to the next step in the treatment. Now, varmaani should apply the Kavzhi Adangal ( Adangal - technique in which pressure points are tuned in specific pattern) to regulate blood flow, temperature and pranic flow in the patient's body. Then varmaani should apply Puzhimuthu Adangal to stimulate the Kalai Nerves (major nerves through which pranic energy flow in the body). At this point, varmaani can notice the patient starting to regain the consciousness and tiredness being reduced. Then on applying Nasiyam in patient's nose or using blowing techniques in patient's nose or ears, the patient will completely regain consciousness. Then Thiravukozh (method to open varmam) should be applied to release the affected varmams.

Once the patient has attainted stable condition, varmaani should either enquire the patient about the accident to know the area in which patient was hit or should analyze the flow of nadis to locate the affected region. Then, varmaani should apply the proper Thadavazh Murai (massaging techniques).

Based on the area in the body that was affected, the varmaani should know the diseases that might arise in the future. According both internal medication and external medication should be prescribed. Such treatment should consider the varmams located in nerves, muscles and bones.

Dealing with Fractures

Varmaani should have knowledge about bone structure and joints. When a patient with bone fracture approaches him, first he should stop the wastage of blood by blocking the required nerves. He should then use the necessary pads to fix veins and arteries and should put a proper dressing using cloths. The technique in which the dressing is done varies depending up on the location on the fracture. To heal the fracture, the dressing should allow path for proper air circulation and also should have provision to administer herbal oils to cure the wounds. The dressing should be removed and redone for seven times and each time the dressing should be done based on the current condition of the bones. In addition, internal medicines should also be prescribed to the patient.
