Panchakarma

 

Ayurveda is a Science of Life which always emphasizes preventative & healing therapies by various methods of Purification & Rejuvenation. One of the many Ayurvedic Therapies is Panchakarma Therapy. Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word which is made up of two words Pancha + Karma. Pancha means Five. Karma means Therapeutic Measure. So Panchakarma means Five types of Therapeutic Measures. People often confuse the term Panchakarma to mean a simple massage therapy. But in actuality, Abhyanga is not a massage. Panchkarma is a method of treatment designed for shodhana (Detoxification) and Removal of disease causing ama (toxins).

Panchkarma is a cleansing process to detoxify the body and to increase the strength of the immune system and to restore the balance and health. Sometimes due to poor dietary habits, no exercises or poor exercise ways,poor lifestyle,hormonal changes or poor digestive system leads to the accumulation of ama (toxins) in the body that causes diseases.
Ama results from improper metabolic functioning causes the system to absorb micro molecules of undigested food.It is greasy and mucous in nature and blocks various tiny body channels(srotas). Its accumulation causes imbalance between the three doshas that leads to various diseases.
