Panchkarma is Ayurveda’s primary purification and detoxification treatment. Panchkarma is derived from two words i.e. PANCH meaning five ?and KARMA meaning steps ( cleansing procedures). These five procedures ?of eliminating toxins from the body are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana. This series of five procedure helps remove deep rooted toxins from the body thereby balancing the doshas (energies that govern all biological functions).
According to Ayurvedic medicine, a person’s natural state is one of health, happiness, and inner well-being. This means that the body is free of toxins; organs function normally; the mind is at peace and emotions are balanced and positive. Unfortunately, with the pressures of daily life over time, toxins build up in the body causing both physical and mental ailments. Panchkarma can reverse these negative effects and restore a natural state of health and wellness by cleansing the body of toxins, restoring balance to the system, and improving bodily function.
