Inducing Qai (emesis) is one of the modes of treatment (part of regimental therapy). Ancient Unani physicians used it extensively as a means of expulsion of excess or morbid humors through oral route. It removes excess morbid matter from the body. In addistion to cleansing the stomach qai also removes or mobilizes the morbid material in the distant viscera. It is said to be the best method for excretion of Balghami and Safravi wastes, especially from the liver and stomach. It is also used for making temperament of stomach and neighboring as well as distant viscera equable by refreshing them with new energy after induction of emesis. A new energy is received by all organs for performing their functions more effectively as evacuation of morbid matter is done with therapeutic emesis.
