Panchakarma therapy.

Introduction:

Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means “five actions” or “five treatments”. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease, poor nutrition and environmental toxins.

Normally the body has the innate ability to efficiently process and remove these waste materials.  However, due to one’s repeated dietary indiscretions, poor exercise patterns, lifestyle, and genetic predisposition, the digestive enzymes, metabolic co-factors, hormones, and agnis which regulate the body’s internal homeostasis become disorganized. This can lead to the accumulation and spread of toxins throughout the physiology resulting in disease.

Panchakarma therapy will remove the excess toxins and correct imbalances in them as well as eliminate toxins from your system through the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc). Panchakarma therapy is a complete cleanses and purifies the tissues at a very deep level.

Panchakarma therapy:

Panchakarma therapy is a very pleasurable experience that is tailored to individual needs and may involve:

  • Daily warm oil massage
  • Herbal steam therapy
  • Lymphatic massage
  • Herbal enemas – Nasal administrations

Ayurvedic physicians recommend Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for maintaining mental and physical hygiene and balance.

Panchakarma is a five-fold therapy; it is highly individualized based on the needs of the individual depending on the Ayurvedic constitutional type, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, immune status, and many other factors. Depending on each individual’s needs, all or only parts of the five therapies are utilized. Specially trained therapists must administer these procedures in an exact sequence for a specified period of time. In Panchakarma therapy there can be periods of discomfort associated with the profound release of toxins, which does occur. It is therefore essential that a knowledgeable expert who can recognize the signs of properly and improperly administered Panchakarma supervise the therapy.

Like all medical procedures, Panchakarma Therapy always must begin with an initial consultation by a qualified Ayurvedic Physician who can determine the individual’s constitutional type, the nature of the health problem if any, and the appropriate degree of intensity of the prescribed therapies.

Conclusion:

Panchakarma treatments have been shown to create measurable brain wave coherence and to lower metabolic activity. They allow the body and mind to drop into a profound level of peacefulness. In this state of relaxation, it is possible to cleanse toxins from tissues as well as to release deep emotional tensions.
