Who Needs Panchakarma?
Practically everyone can benefit from a panchakarma procedure because the body is constantly creating toxins. That is why it is important to cleanse and detox the body regularly. These are the signs to know if you need a detox:
- A thick layer of coating on the tongue
- Feeling tired throughout the day, especially after meals
- Body aches and pains
- Uncontrollable cravings
- Foggy mind
- Bad breath, body odor, or flatulence
- Constipation or diarrheaThe purpose of Panchakarma is sodhana (purification). If a disease is treated with the sodhana approach, it does not recur. Thus, the panchakarma sodhana is the ultimate way to heal and re-balance the body.
The complete process of Panchakarma involves the following three steps:
This is a preparatory procedure required before the main treatment, to soften the tissues so that the lipid-soluble toxins deposited into them are liquefied and flow back into the digestive tract. From here, they can be eliminated. This treatment prepares the patient mentally and physically for the main procedure of Panchakarma.
It involves three procedures:
Pachan Karma – improves digestion with herbs and fasting so that the patient can digest the ghee (clarified butter) which is provided to liquefy the fat-soluble toxins.
- Snehan Karma – medicated ghee is given to the patient in increasing doses in order to aggravate and liquefy the fat-soluble toxins deposited in the deep tissues.
- Swedan Karma – a full body steam bath is given to the patient thereby opening up the body channels and allowing the heat to liquefy the toxins further. This facilitates their movement from the tissues to the digestive tract.
2. Pradhan Karma
This is the Panchakarma, a five-step procedure which is highly individualized depending on the needs, age, digestive strength, immune system, and other factors. This intense Panchakarma procedure can only be done under the guidance of an Ayurvedic practitioner.
The five karmas to cleanse the complete body are:
- Vamanam (therapeutic emesis) – induced vomiting which helps clear the upper GI tract to the duodenum (end of the stomach) and a part of the respiratory tract.
- Virechanam (purgation) – induced purgation clears the GI tract from the duodenum to the exit.
- Anuvasana (enema using medicated oil) – the oil enema helps lubricate the rectal area and remove the lipid soluble waste out through the anus.
- Nasyam – nasal inhalation of medicated substances which help clear the respiratory tract and the para nasal sinuses.
3. Paschaat Karma
This is a post-therapy dietary regime to restore the body’s digestive and absorptive capacity to its normal state. It includes rejuvenating treatments, lifestyle management, diet management, and intake of herbal supplements.
It includes the following procedures:
- Sansarjan Karma – food therapy after detoxification, which aims at gradually increasing the patient’s diet from liquids to semi-solids to a normal diet.
- Rasayan Adi Prayogam – a rejuvenating rasayan therapy which aids in increasing natural immunity and enhancing your general well-being.
- Shaman Chikitsa – a pacification therapy with herbs and lifestyle management.
It is important to note that a panchakarma procedure is designed specifically for an individual after a thorough physical examination and pulse diagnosis.
Hence, there is no universal package for everybody. These treatments can take a minimum of 7 days and may last as long as 21 days.
