Ayurvedic medicine is one of the oldest healing systems in the world, originating in the ancient civilizations of India documented over 5000 years ago. Ayurveda in Sanskrit means "Knowledge of Life". Panchkarma is based on the central concept of ayurveda that a disease is caused by the build-up of toxins that cause imbalances in the three doshas in the mind- body complex.
Panchkarma- Complete Ayurvedic Detoxification and Cleansing Programme:
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 procedure). These five procedures of eliminating toxins from the body are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana. These five procedures help remove deep rooted toxins from the body thereby balancing the doshas(energies that govern all biological functions).
According to ayurveda, a person's natural state is one of health, happiness, and inner well-being. This means that the body is free of toxins, the organs function normally, the mind is at peace and the emotions are balanced and positive. Unfortunately, with the pressures of daily life, toxins build up in the body over time, 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.
Panchkarma treatments have been shown to create measurable brain wave coherence and lower metabolic activity. They allow the body and mind to drop into a profound level of peacefulness. During this state of relaxation, it is possible to cleanse toxins from the tissues as well as release deeply held emotional tension. You will experience calmness and clarity that resembles the crystal water of a still mountain lake.
Panchkarma is deeply relaxing and soothing. It cleanses the body of accumulated toxins, helps promote longevity, releases the negative effects of stress and tension and restores your body's natural balance.
Panchkarma is an overall rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit.
