Panchakarma therapy designed to facilitate the removal of deep rooted stresses and impurities in the physiology. It is recommended on a seasonal basis to maintain and promote well-being in healthy people, and when needed, to restore balance in those suffering from illness.
Our bodies are governed by their own unique rhythms and the rhythms of the environment such as weather patterns and seasonal changes. They also respond to what we put into them, and the situations and circumstances in which we live and work. Toxicity can come from our food, our relationships, our environment, even from our own thought patterns. Over time, possibly several years, unless we consciously work to lessen those experiences there is a buildup of toxicity at all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Panchakarma is the process by which we can purify and lessen the degenerating influences of those experiences and toxic materials. It has to be said though that receiving or undergoing those therapies or treatments will be more successful and effective if consideration and thought is given to one’s life style generally. Our bodies have natural ways for removing toxins and Panchakarma treatments enhance their ability to do so.
Some of the toxins accumulated in the body are water soluble and lot of water intake is advisable to keep cells hydrated and provide the medium (water) for easy removal of water soluble toxins via kidneys (urine) and skin (perspiration). However, some toxins need an oil based medium to break them down to move to the gastrointestinal tract and the skin to be eliminated. Panchakarma works to provide this by using oils to suit a specific body type.
By removing those toxins, it allows the body to come into balance thus encouraging the body’s own rejuvenating and healing ability to do the rest. Panchakarma therapies consist of a variety of soothing and nourishing procedures aimed at restoring balance and harmony in the body.
Panchakarma means five actions. Traditionally, a few days of Panchakarma and Ayurvedic therapies are recommended at the change of every season. This helps to eliminate the accumulation of a specific dosha. Panchakarma is a purification therapy used in Ayurved. The word Panchakarma means five actions and refers to five procedures intended to intensively cleanse and restore balance in the body, mind, and emotions. Panchakarma is used by Ayurvedic physicians as a treatment for a wide variety of health conditions and also as a preventative measure.
