Know The Benefits Of Panchakarma Treatment?

Panchakarma Treatment

Panchakarma Treatment in Ayurveda defines health as a condition where the body is clear of toxins and organs are functioning normally, the mind is at peace and emotions are calm and happy. In a stressful and toxic environment, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration in functioning of body-mind complex which opens the door for chronic, degenerative and non-specific diseases to develop. These can evolve into serious specific diseases, ultimately damaging an individual’s health and wellness.

Panchakarma is the ultimate Ayurvedic detoxification of body and mind. It also strengthens the immune system to restore health and well-being. It is a compendium of therapies that are highly individualized based on the Ayurvedic constitution type (Prakruty), imbalances (if any), digestive fire, age, immune status, health conditions & many other factors. Depending on an individual’s needs all or part of five therapies are utilized. Panchakarma programme starts with the initial consultation by our physician to determine the individual’s Body-Mind constitution, health condition(s) and appropriate degree of intensity of detoxification required.  Based on the initial consultation, one, two or more therapies are prescribed for the day. These therapies are conducted using the constitution specific Ayurveda oils and/or medicines. 

Below is the description of variety of therapies used in a Panchakarma programme :

  • Vamana, induced emesis using Ayurveda medicine or SNEHAPANA, internal oleation therapy
  • Virechana, purgation induced by Ayurveda medicines
  • Nasya, Detoxification of upper respiratory tract by administration of Ayurveda drugs in nasal cavity
  • Basti, Ayurvedic herbal enema to cleanse out toxins from lower colon
  • Swedana, herbalized individual steam bath

With an Ayurvedic prescribed diet and yoga regimen, Panchakarma reverses the degenerative process and its effects are often profound and long-lasting. With the systematic means of detoxification through ‘Panchakarma‘, it helps in detoxification and rejuvenation, removes impurities, stress and toxins and cleanses the body filled with harmful chemicals and residues. Since it balances the doshas and clears toxins from the entire system, there are numerous benefits of Panchakarma

A strict diet and lifestyle is to be followed throughout various stages of treatment. This is to bring back the AGNI (Digestive fire) to its normal levels of functioning. Ayurvedic herbal based medicines are administered to rejuvenate the body or to treat the diseases, if any. During different phases of Panchakarma Treatment, these restrictions are to be observed:

  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, both internally and externally.

Protect Agni (metabolic fire) with post Panchakarma dietary recommendation (Samsarjana krama), which avoids the formation of Ama (toxins) in the body. Maintaining a healthy daily routine with regular dietary patterns, exercise, sleep and sexual pattern is important to maintain the benefits of the procedure.

Panchakarma Treatment procedures do not produce any serious complications. One may however come across symptoms like headache, body ache, nausea, constipation, bloating, loose motions and emotional imbalance if the guidelines are not followed.

There are certain precautions to be taken during each phase of Panchakarma Treatment procedures by all individuals. One mustn’t practice strenuous activities like travelling, exercising and sexual activities. Avoid intoxicants like tobacco and alcohol, avoid sleeping in the daytime to ensure one sleeps before 10 pm. Food should only be consumed when really hungry and to not fill the stomach completely.  Ayurveda may be very complex in character but the effect it has on the human body is incredible.
