Yes.. Panchakarma includes many treatment procedures, some of which are indicated for weight loss too.. Depending on your body fat percentage, you may reduce 2 kg to 9 kg weight in 15 days.. Whether you need daily or alternate days panchakarma is decided based on the treatment that is selected for you by your ayurvedic doctor..

Hello, Panchakarma is a classic Ayurveda detoxification treatment and includes five major procedures. It is designed to purify the whole body by eliminating the accumulated toxins from it. The ideal duration for carrying out the Panchakarma is 14 days – 6 days for preparation, 1 day purge and 7 days for the build-up and healthy lifestyle phase. While it is not purely weight reducing treatment it just an adjunct to reduce weight, so it is difficult to tell how much weight reduction it causes. And it is more of rejuvenating or detoxification treatment. Please consult your doctor, there are other methods to lose weight.
