Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that literally means “five actions” or “five treatments”. It is a means of flushing ama or toxins out of the body, thereby cleansing and rejuvenating the body and mind. It uses five methods or therapies that are guaranteed to detoxify the body.
- Vamana: Ideal for people who have a kapha dominant body and are suffering from asthma, obesity, or anxiety.
- Virechana: Best suited for people with pitta dosha, who are suffering from skin and digestive disorders, jaundice, and acidity.
- Nasya: Helps to clear the head region of the body and is treated through massages with herbs and oils on the head and shoulders, giving instant relief.
- Basti: Often recommended for complex and chronic diseases, basti is a therapy that uses enema of herbal oils or decoctions to heal the body. It is one of the five pradhana karmas of Panchakarma, and is used to treat vata disorders.
- Raktamokshana: This procedure is used to cure diseases that are caused due to impure blood. The name is derived from two words ‘rakt’, which means blood, and ‘mokshana’, which means to leave.
Panchakarma treatment is unique in the sense that it includes preventive, curative and promotive actions for various diseases.
