Panchakarma

The Ultimate in Mind-Body Healing & Detoxification

Rejuvenation therapy

Panchakarma is not only for detoxifying the body, but also for rejuvenation, the ultimate mind-body healing experience by strengthening the immune system, and restoring balance and well-being. It is one of the most effective Ayurveda treatment for health and healing.

Normally the body has the innate ability to efficiently process and remove these waste materials. However, due to one’s repeated dietary imprudence, poor exercise patterns, lifestyle, and genetic inclination, the digestive enzymes, metabolic co-factors and hormones which regulate the body’s internal stability become chaotic. Thus, this leads to the accumulation and spread of toxins throughout the body  resulting in disease.

Panchakarma will remove the toxins and correct imbalances in the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc). Panchakarma purifies the tissues at a very deep level.

The Panchakarma Treatment has three stages:

Purva karma

(Preparatory stage)

At the beginning the body is prepared for the actual process of elimination. This is done by the following processes, administered for the first 4 -5 days.

Pradhana karma

(Main Therapy)

This is the main part of the Panchkarma ritual, which may last for 5 – 10  days or more, depending on treatment prescribed by the doctor.

Paschat karma

(Rejuvenation).

This post cleansing period (Paschat means after) is extremely important . It is when the cleansed body is slowly brought back to normal life.

The panchakarma is tailored to individual needs and
may involve the five basic cleansing methods

Vamana

Therapeutic vomiting.

Virechan

Purgation

Basti

Enema

Nasya

Elimination of toxins

Rakta Moksha

Detoxification of the blood

“Because we cannot scrub our inner body we need to learn a few skills to help cleanse our tissues, organs, and mind. This is the art of Ayurveda.”
