Vomiting is normally the last resort of the stomach to throw out impure, excessively rich or heavy food. It is a natural physical process but only as a last resort. To purposely vomit is in a sense unnatural but we have found from experience, as did the ancient yogis who originated the technique, that it can do much to improve the functioning of the stomach and in turn the whole physical body. If we treated the stomach with more care then it would not be necessary to do kunjal kriya, but most of us sadly mistreat our stomachs. It is under these circumstances that intentional vomiting becomes most useful as a means of removing the impurities that contaminate the body.
