Ayurveda believes that we ingest toxins on daily basis through food, water, air or our day-to-day mental and emotional activities. The toxicity level in the body is further intensified by unhealthy lifestyle, stressful relationships and lack of spiritual orientation.
All these factors lead to the formation of ‘Ama’ in the body that can be classified into toxins, undigested food products and blemishes, which further can cause various ailments related to stomach, kidney, intestine, etc. This Ama is removed from the body with the help of an effective ayurvedic treatment known as Panchakarma.
What Is Panchakarma?
Panchakarma is a unique set of procedures that is used to cleanse and rejuvenate the body by clearing out all the toxins from body, mind and consciousness.
It is a personalized form of detoxification combining five procedures of purification and thus is named panchakarma. It is especially formulated to heal the body, detoxify it and restore its natural balance. Removing toxins from the body tissues opens the body channels, brings about energy in the body and increases inner peace, vitality and confidence. This procedure simply aims at the overall well-being of the person.
Lifestyle changes, lack of sleep, chronic fatigue, improper diet and bad food habits can lead to weakening of the digestive fire or ‘Agni’. Other factors that lead to the weakening of Agni and accumulation of Ama are emotional distress, fear, anxiety and anger.
When the Agni is weak, the body becomes unable to digest and metabolize food, emotions and experiences. As a result, the physical and emotional Ama built up in the body blocks the flow of energy causing several ailments. Panchkarma, thus, is a natural, holistic and unique therapeutic treatment that cleanses the toxins from the deep body tissues and increases vitality, inner peace and confidence.
The process starts with inquiring about the individual’s health and lifestyle to understand his vulnerability to diseases. Based on this information, a proper therapy plan is conceptualized including pre-therapy supplements, diet, exercises and other activities.
There are five therapies of Panchakarma used for cleaning and rejuvenation of body: Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya, Rakta Moksa. However, it is not necessary that all the therapies are used on one individual. The therapies can be tailored according to the doshic imbalances of the individual. So let us get familiar with these therapies in detail below:
