Is Panchakarma safe for 11 year old boy
Hi, my son is 11 years old and autistic. He is under Ayurvedic treatment for past 3 months. Doctor is now suggesting to go for Panchakarma treatment which includes abhyangana and shirodhara, nasya, basti, takradhara etc, for around 40 days. Are all these (especially basti and may be vamana and virechana as well not sure) safe for 11 year old boy? Will it not be very painful for him? I am worried because he may not be able to communicate properly if something happens to him. Asking this question to get second opinion. Thanks in advance.

Hello, don't worry, all the procedures are very useful to your child. And there will be no pain while doing procedures except during vamana and virechana. These are also not painful but some children may can't tolerate.

Vaman and Virechan should be ideally avoided. Rest treatments you mentioned would be safe for him and properly administered Basti (matra basti) would be extremely beneficial.
