Panchakarma is a five-step method of treatment in Ayurveda for total mind-body rejuvenation. The process removes toxins from the system, rebalance the Doshas, heal numerous ailments and renew a feeling of clarity and inner peace.
An Ayurvedic practitioner determines the type of panchakarma according to the person’s constitution or Prakriti, overall health and the season in which the treatment is done.
The five methods in panchakarma are:
Before the actual panchakarma, there is a process known as purvakarma is done which means the preceding karma. In this stage, your body is being prepared for the panchakarma chikitsa or treatment. The two main practices involved in purvakarma are Snehan and Swedan. It takes around seven days of snehan and swedan to prepare tridoshas receptive to the treatment.
The pachakarma begins after the completion of purvakarma. The panchakarma method is selected according to the physical constitution or prakriti and the disorder or vikriti in the body.
Vaman (vomiting or emesis therapy) is administerd for kapha vikriti like bronchitis, colds, breathlessness, diabetes, chronic asthma, indigestion, etc. These problems occur due to excess mucus. This Panchakarma conduct involves external and internal oleation and fomentation therapies that go on for a few days until the toxins in your body get liquefied and gather up in upper layers. After that, you are given an emetic medication to induce vomiting, to clear out the toxins from your body.
Virechan (purgation therapy) is done to reduce excess Pitta collected in the gall bladder, liver, small intestine, etc. The accumulation of excess toxic materials results in rashes, fever, inflammations, nausea, and jaundice. Here also you’re treated with oleation and fomentation practices and are given herbal laxative that cleanses your bowels of all the toxins.
The Basti treatment or enema therapy is unique to the Ayurveda system and includes administration of medicated materials such as ghee, herbal decoctions, milk or oils into the rectum, for cleaning up your colon.
Nasya therapy is done to get rid of kapha related issues affecting eyes, nose, ear, and throat. Nasal drops are administered which clear up the whole head area, and offer relief from health issues such as migraine, headaches and hair problems. These drops are in fact medicated oil which cleanses the toxins from the neck and head area.
Raktha Moksha is the procedure to get rid of toxic materials accumulated in the bloodstream. It is a practice of purification of blood. It regulates the action of pitta and treats disorders like rashes, itching, and acne, etc.
