Causes of Hives

Hives or Urticaria are bumps that form a rash on your skin caused/triggered by:

Hives can be mild-severe normally last up to 48 hours but can last up to several weeks especially if the trigger is not addressed and handled. Be sure to get properly diagnosed.

Ayurvedic treatments for Hives


Ultimate cleanse through a series of five therapies, which is what the word Panchakarma means. These therapies include several methods of purging toxins and impurities from the body.


  • Shamana
  • Purvakarma


  • Vamana
  • Virechana
  • Basti
  • Nasya
  • Rakta Moksha

Once the body is completely cleansed, free of toxins, and balanced hives should not be an issue. Panchkarma is an Ayurvedic cleanse of the:

  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Kidneys
  • Stomach
  • Intestines
  • Blood toxins
  • Colon

For best results, it is suggested to do a Panchkarma cleanse at the changing of the seasons. Women with a menstrual cycle should not do Panchkarma during their period.


Virechana is a treatment that clears the small intestines. Administered only three days after Vamana has been completed (if necessary). Vamana is a process that expels unbalanced doshas through the mouth.

Virechana should also follow Snehana and Svedana. These should not be forgotten as they are one of the most important steps in preparing for Virechana. For anywhere between 3-7 days both internally and externally, herbs, oils, and natural fats are administered to purge unbalanced doshas through the intestines.

Once Vamana, Snehana, and Svedana have been administered and successfully completed, Virechana can be administered to cleanse the various pitta. The word means laxative or purging.

A blend of herbs will be administered during Virechana. This is when the body discharges unnecessary or harmful toxins and this sacred healing therapy can last 3-8 days.
