“Crushing fatigue, severe body and joint ache, chronic headache, anxiety and digestive problems.” recalls Mr. Anush Krishnathray, an IT Engineer in his mid-30s.  “I frequently missed office and even started working from home because I couldn’t last more than a few hours at my work.”

The symptoms sound too familiar? This is just a single case amongst the millions in India suffering from the same symptoms. People rush to Western medicine for aid for short lived effects and long lasting side effects including cardiovascular complications and psychiatric problems. What we fail to see here is that these problems are a cry for help from our bodies to be in sync with the natural cycles back again.

That’s where the ancient Ayurvedic Panchakarma comes in.

What Can Panchakarma Do For You?

Panchakarma meaning ‘five therapies’ is a Ayurvedic whole-being cleansing and rejuvenating therapy focused on the elimination of excess toxins and doshas accumulated in our body due to lifestyle factors, diet and stress. The 5 Panchakarma therapeutic treatments are :

  1. Vamana
  2. Virechana
  3. Nasya
  4. Basti and
  5. Raktamoskshana

In simple terms, Panchakarma is like a reboot button in your computer. You are required to do it every time there is something wrong with your system and otherwise to ensure its proper working.

Here are five signs that an Ayurvedic Panchakarma detoxification might be right for you:

You’re always tired

Panchakarma offers profound emotional, physical and psychological effects increasing mental and physical efficiency and balancing the nervous system. This lethargy can also be linked to digestive ailments. Panchakarma can help to de-stress the body, get rid of fatigue and cure digestive problems.

You’re restless, unable to focus and anxious

Your mind and body are connected to one another. A negative effect on one is bound to affect the other. Panchakarma provides for deep relaxation as well as introspection, removal of accumulated toxins and negative thoughts and fill your mind, body and spirit with renewed, positive energy.

You have digestive issues

You do not eliminate regularly and is constantly constipated? This indicates that the bodily doshas are not in a state of balance. It is important to eliminate stools at least once in a day.

You’re suffering from regular skin ailments

According to Ayurveda medicine, whatever is happening inside your body will only be reflected outside on your skin. Common skin ailments include acne and rashes for which Panchakarma can offer long term relief by detoxifying you internally and externally, and nourishing you with healthy food support.

You’re allergic to specific foods

You might be allergic to specific types of food or lactose intolerant. These indicate weakened Agni and doshic imbalances within the body. Panchakarma can bring back that Agni, proving a permanent solution to the ailment and strengthening your whole body system.

The above mentioned five symptoms indicates that something is not right with your body and mind. Various ayurveda centers provide authentic and invidualised Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments to suit your doshic imbalances, ailment and body type.
