We live in a world where we are in constant contact with harmful pollutants. They are present in the air we breathe, in the food we eat and in the water we drink. Over time, these pollutants build up as toxins in our body and become the source of various health issues. Fortunately for us, our bodies have an in-built detoxification system to deal with these dangers. However, as we age, our bodies aren’t able to get rid of the toxins as efficiently as they used to. By making use of various detoxification methods, we can help our body perform its natural function effectively and expel the accumulated toxins to initiate the process of renewal and healing.
Ayurveda, the ancient holistic healing system recommends regular detoxification of the body for restoring inner balance and maintaining its well-being. By undergoing Panchakarma, an ayurvedic detoxification treatment, the body is cleansed of all toxic substances resulting in enhanced health, vitality and vigor.
Panchakarma, the ayurvedic way to detoxify your body
Panchakarma is the primary method of detoxification in Ayurveda. Through this therapeutic method, the body is cleansed of toxins that have accumulated over time as a result of poor nutrition and unhealthy lifestyles.
Panchakarma consists of five procedures carried out in a specific order to promote the removal of toxins out of the body through the nearest possible route of elimination. Preparatory treatments to Panchakarma include light fasting, steam therapy, herbal oil massages, and the intake of herbal decoctions depending on the physiology of the individual.
The main five therapies in Panchakarma include:
- Vamana – therapeutic vomiting induced by using herb emetics
- Virechana – herb-induced purgation
- Basti – herbal enema
- Nasya – nasal administration of herbal medication
- Raktamokshan – blood letting
Panchakarma treatments are tailored to meet the particular requirements of an individual as determined by the ayurvedic practitioner. Depending on the individual’s condition, doshic imbalances, age, prakirti (constitution) and many other factors, all five or only parts of the therapeutic methods are used.
