Ayurvedic Panchakarma




The traditional science of Ayurvedic Panchakarma offers the most natural and complete cleanse. It is the ideal method of detoxifying and rejuvenating the body and mind and healing from within.

The Panchakarma programme is for 21 nights and follows 3 distinct stages.

The first stage is Purvakarma or pre-purification measures. 

Before purification begins, there is a need to prepare the body to aid toxin removal. The programme starts with improving digestion both at the cellular and gastrointestinal level through digestive juice stimulants (dipana), and digestants (pachana). 

This is followed by Snehapana or escalating consumption of medicated ghee for three to seven days, depending on the strength and nature of an individual. Next is Snehana which is the application of oil to the entire body with a massage technique that helps toxins move towards the gastrointestinal tract. Alongside Svedana or therapeutic sweating and is given every day immediately following the Snehana. 

The second stage consists of main panchakarma cleansing therapies which include Vamana (emesis), Virechana (Purgation), Kashaya basti (Decoction enema), Sneha basti (medicated oil enema) and Nasyam (elimination of toxins through the nasal passages and para-nasal sinuses. 

The third stage is Paschatkarma( post-purification) which focuses on special diets to rest and rejuvenate the cleansed system, along with natural herbal remedies to replenish the digestive enzymes and immune system.
