Ayurveda is an age-old science that uses body intelligence, seasonal wisdom, and nature’s cure by way of Panchakarma to balance and detoxify the body. It is designed to restore the degenerative process of the human body, holding within it the potential of long-lasting wellness.
Panchakarma treatments are designed to work on the body using a combination of treatments like steams, saunas, massages, and specific diets that help the body get rid of ‘ama’ or toxins.
According to Ayurveda, the human body is submerged under a load of improper food, poor lifestyle choices, and immense stress. These issues affect our body both mentally and physically, leading to blockages in the various systems that run the body, ultimately resulting in diseases. Seasonal changes additionally are known to create illnesses in the body aggravating the doshas and throwing them off balance.
Therefore, one needs to cleanse and re-balance the body by way of adopting a lifestyle that encourages the habit of correct eating, regular exercising, and mindful living.
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.

These therapies are customised to the specific needs of the individual, depending on their Ayurvedic constitution, their dosha imbalances, age, digestive strength, immunity status, metabolic disorders, and several other factors. Qualified Ayurvedic doctors will use all or either part of the five therapies to heal a patient. These therapies are known to detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system and restore balance and well-being in an individual.
All the glands in the body get activated in the process of the treatment that can last from a minimum of three days to a maximum of a month. Panchakarma treatments are administered in the clinic of an Ayurvedic practitioner, where a patient can either go for daily treatments or one could even get admitted to an Ayurvedic centre for a 360-degree experience.
Whatever type of treatment the doctor proposes, one must cooperate fully to understand and reap the benefits of this traditional procedure.
