Panchakarma is Ayurveda's primary purification and detoxification treatment. Panchakarma means the "five therapies". These 5 therapies are means of eliminating toxins from the body with the application of Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamoskshana. This series of therapies help remove deep rooted stress and illness causing toxins from the body while balancing the doshas.
Panchakarma is a very special Ayurvedic operation requiring proper guidance from a highly trained and skillful Ayurvedic practitioner. One should consult with an Ayurvedic physician, not just someone with a modest amount of training prior to deciding for these cleansing procedures.
Panchakarma is done individually for each person with their specific constitution and specific disorder or need in mind, thus it requires close observation and supervision.
It is recommended for healthy persons also as a preventive treatment to keep physically and mentally fit and energetic. It is also done to best advantage, although not always, at the junction period between two seasons, thus helping a person to prepare their internal environment for the oncoming season.
According to Ayurveda, every human being is a unique phenomenon of cosmic consciousness. The three Dosha (humors) determine every individual's psychosomatic temperament or constitution.
Vata (ether plus air), Pitta (fire plus water) and Kapha (water plus earth) are called the Tridosha, meaning the three Dosha. The internal environment is governed by Vata -Pitta -Kapha (V-P-K), which is constantly reacting to the external environment.
The wrong diet, habits, lifestyle, incompatible food combinations (e.g. milk and fish, melons and grain, yogurt and meat or cooked honey etc.), seasonal changes, repressed emotions and stress factors can all act either together or separately to change the balance of V-P-K.
According to the nature of the cause, Vata, Pitta or Kapha undergo aggravation or derangement that produce Ama (toxins).To stop the further production of Ama, Ayurvedic literature suggests placing the patientÂ on a proper diet together with an appropriate lifestyle, habits and exercise, and administering a proper cleansing program such as Panchakarma.
