Panchkarma has been derived from the Sanskrit word, which means five treatments. The process includes cleansing of the body by eliminating toxic material formed due to illness,poor lifestyle,toxic medicines and poor nutrition. Panchakarma, a therapy for achieving balance in body, mind and consciousness. It removes accumulated waste materials from the body and corrects imbalances of doshas (vata, pitta and kapha).
Your body naturally has the ability to evict waste materials, but an imbalanced diet, lifestyle, lack of exercise and genetic susceptibility disorganizes the digestive system (agni), hormones and metabolic factors which are helpful in regulating the internal homeostasis of the body.
With the help of Panchakarma treatment the cells/tissues of your body are cleansed from within. The process include Vaman, Virechan, Vasti, Nasyam and Raktamokshan. According to Ayurvedic knowledge, Panchakarma should be received as a regular seasonal treatment for maintaining physical and mental health. For any disease, it can be taken as and when required (under the guidance of Ayurvedic doctors)
