Panchkarma – Ayurvedic Complete Detoxification and Cleansing Process. Panchkarma is Ayurveda’s primary purification and detoxification Process. Panchkarma is made with two words, i.e., “PANCH” meaning five and “KARMA” meaning steps ( cleansing & procedures). These five procedures of eliminating the toxins from the human body are – Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti, and Raktamokshana. This series of five processes helps to remove deep-rooted toxins from the body so that balancing the doshas of the body (energies that govern all biological functions in the human body).

According to Ayurveda, an individual’s natural state is one of health, happiness, and internal well-being. It means that the body is free from toxins, all organs function usually works, the mind is in harmony and mental state are balanced and positive. Unfortunately, with the stress and pressures of daily life over time, toxins build up in the body causing both physical and mental disorder. Panchakarma can reverse these adverse effects and restore a natural state of health and wellness by cleansing the toxins from the body, restoring balance to the system, and improving bodily function.

Panchkarma therapies have been shown to create measurable brain wave consistency and to lower metabolic action. Panchkarma procedures allow the body and mind to leave into a deep level of calmness. In this state of relaxation, it is feasible to cleanse toxins from tissues as well as to release deeply held sentimental stress. You will experience calmness and clarity looking like the crystal water of a still mountain lake.
