Panchakarma Complete & Seasonal Detox
Panchakarma is the profound mind-body healing experience for detoxifying the body, strengthening the immune system, and restoring balance and well-being. It is one the most effective healing modality in Ayurveda. It promotes Detoxification and Rejuvenation. It is recommended on a seasonal basis (seasonal Detox) , as well as when an individual feels out of balance or is experiencing illness (Complete Detox).
Panchkarma means "Five actions/ therapies".These therapies are used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Normally the body has the innate ability to efficiently process and remove these waste materials. However due to one’s wrong dietary habits , poor exercise patterns, lifestyle, and genetic predisposition the digestive enzymes, metabolism and hormones which regulate the body’s internal health become disorganized. This can lead to the accumulation and spread of toxins throughout the body resulting in disease. This waste matter is called ama in Ayurveda. Ama is a foul-smelling, sticky, harmful substance that needs to be completely evacuated from the body.
Panchakarma will remove the excess doshas and balance them and also eliminate the toxic ama out of body through the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc). Panchakarma purifies the tissues at a very deep level. It involves daily massages and oil baths, herbal enemas, nasal administrations. It is a very blissful experience. Ayurveda recommendsPanchakarma as a seasonal treatment for maintaining mental and physical health.
Panchakarma is an individual approach based on the body constitution, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, physical strength, immunity, and many other factors. Depending on each individual’s needs one or two therapies are selected. Panchakarma Therapies always must begin with an initial consultation by a qualified Ayurvedic Vaidya who can determine the individual’s body constitution (Prakruti), altered state of prakruti (Vikruti), and then appropriate therapies will be rec-commanded.
