Panchakarma is a combination of five purificatory procedures designed to purify the body at cellular level. Ayurveda believes that human body accumulates toxins because of our odd eating habits, stress and other disturbances in our life style. Panchakarma is permanent removal of these toxins from the body and hence the disease is eradicated permanently. Vamana, Virechana, Anuvasan Vasti, Asthapan Vasti and Nasya are the main Panchakarma procedures. There are many pre operative and post operative procedures like body massage, steam bath, potali patra sweda, shirovasti and many others which are done along with main panchakarma. This is a very powerful way of treatment and it has the potential to treat many of the dreadful diseases of modern life like rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, migraine, slip disc, skin diseases like psoriasis and leucoderma, obesity and menstrual problems.
It is arguably termed as the mother of all the treatment processes and involves the application of the medicated oil. The main area of operation for this treatment is associated with the large intestine. It plays a very pivotal role in the eradication of the disorders like slip disc, nervous diseases, rheumatism, piles, obesity, abnormal enlargement of the spleen, kidney stones, obstruction in the menstrual flow, etc.
It is a process of cleansing the path meant for bowel movement with the help of a laxative mixed either with warm water or milk. It is an excellent natural medical procedure to clean the alimentary canal. The process is truly effective for the patients suffering from skin diseases, anemia, diabetes, gynecological disorders, heartburn, jaundice, anemia, urinary disorder, etc.
The treatment process induces vomiting with the help of oral drugs and removes all the toxins from the body as well as clears the path of respiratory system.
