Panchakarma


The aim of all systems of medicine is restoration of normalcy in an individual. This normalcy should reflect in all spheres of life, physical, mental and spiritual. Ayurveda as a holistic system strives to restore normalcy in the individual and it achieves this by the process of Panchakarma. This word Panchakarma means five actions. It is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind and spirit.

Ayurveda tries to establish the harmony of macrocosm in the microcosm. Everything in nature has its own rhythm. Panchakarma eliminates the harmful substances out of the body which are present in the form of Doshas in an individual's body and thus restores the lost harmony. This unique concept of the doshas and the body relations are interpreted as toxins, viruses, bacteria etc. by the different medical systems.

Doshas get accumulated in one's body due to environmental pollution, improper food intakes and changes in the seasons; anxiety, fear, anger etc. mental factors, stress. The accumulated doshas weaken all the systems and create an ideal setting for development of chronic and degenerative diseases. The individual's health is compromised in the process. When left unattended they develop into serious ailments which destroys one's health and wellness.

Panchakarma is the Ayurvedic way of removing accumulated doshas. By cleansing the body of all accumulated toxins, this process restores the lost vitality and improves bodily function. A subsequent change in lifestyle helps maintain this ideal state of health.
