Panchakarma is the word for the five different procedures used in Ayurveda which are believed to purify the body. This is
generally done in two ways
  • By pacifying the aggravated doshas by using appropriate diet, natural herbs and minerals.
  • By eliminating the increased Doshas from the body

Panchakarma is a purifying therapy to enhance the metabolic process through food and herbal medicines. It is used in deep rooted chronic disease as well as seasonal imbalance of tri-Doshas. As the wastes are eliminated from the body, the person becomes healthy. So Panchakarma means five types of actions or techniques or treatment. These types of therapeutics are based on elimination therapy. In order to stay fit and healthy one should carry out Panchakarma methods as a way of cleansing and servicing the body. The greatest benefit of this system is preventing possible serious illness due to ‘Srothas Avarodha’ obstruction of channels or ducts.
