Panchakarma is one of the signature techniques of Ayurveda, the 5000 year old Indian science which emphasizes the importance of living a healthy and positive life, and helps prevent diseases as well as cure them. Ayurveda Panchakarma is a detoxification of the whole body, resulting in total rejuvenation. It clears ama (toxins) out of your body and balances the doshas. It can be especially helpful for those suffering from chronic diseases where allopatic medicine has not been able to make the condition better. The word panchakarma actually means “five treatments”, and these five therapeutic procedures are called Vamana, Virechan, Basti, Nasya and Rakta Mokshan (You can read about these treatments in detail here). Each person undergoing panchakarma will get a uniquely designed treatment based on these five procedures, depending on his or hers state of health, constitution, and special complaints.
Who Can Do Panchakarma ?
Anyone who is looking for maintaining a positive health, free of disease. Whether you are young or old, whether you have any specific health issues or you just want to stay healthy: panchakarma can help. If you are suffering from a chronic disease or autoimmune disorder, panchakarma has proved to be helpful on conditions where allopathic medicine has failed to help.
How Long is the Panchakarma Treatment ?
Ideally panchakarma should be done for 21 days. But knowing that people have very demanding lives, we have created three different panchakarma packages, consisting of minimum 2 weeks and maximum 4 weeks.
What to expect as a result of Panchakarma ?
If you have undergone a full 4 week panchakarma program, you definitely will start to see clear improvement in your health conditions. Sometimes total reversal of disease is possible, depending on how severe the condition was to begin with. Even with the 2 week panchakarma package you will feel totally relaxed and rejuvenated.
Ayurveda panchakarma is a serious therapy, and should be approached with the idea to surrender to the procedures. The result depends on both the person undergoing the treatments as well as the people who are providing it; the work is a collaboration between patient and doctor.
