1.What is Panchakarma? How can I avail Panchkarma therapy for myself?
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means “five treatments”. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Panchakarma will remove the excess doshas and correct imbalances in them as well as eliminate the harmful ama out of your system through the body’s own organs and channels of elimination (colon, sweat glands, lungs, bladder, urinary tract, stomach, intestines, etc). Panchakarma purifies the tissues at a very deep level. It involves daily massages and oil baths, herbal enemas, nasal administrations. Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for maintaining mental and physical hygiene and balance.
