The 5 Phases of Panchakarma

Purvakarma: Pre-purification preparation

Before commencing the actual detoxification, the body needs to be prepared to release toxins, as per prescribed methods. Two procedures are used for this: Snehana and Swedana.

Is a full-body massage with medicated herbal oils. Oil massage is done in a particular manner in order to move the toxins towards the gastro-intestinal tract. The oil penetrates into the skin, leaving the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, thus helping to remove stress and nourish the nervous system. Snehanais given for 3 to 7 days as indicated.

Is sudation or sweating. It is given every day immediately following Snehana. An herbal concoction may be added to the steam to further loosen the toxins from the body. Swedana liquefies the toxins and facilitates their movement towards the gastro-intestinal tract.

Pradhanakarma – The main Purification process

Vamana- Vomiting Therapy

When there is congestion in the lungs causing repeated bronchitis attacks, colds, cough or asthma, the recommended Ayurvedic treatment is therapeutic vomiting. This eliminates the ‘Kapha’, causing the excess mucus.

Virechana – Purgation Therapy

When excess bile (Pitta) is secreted and accumulated in the gall bladder, liver and small intestine, it tends to result in rashes, skin inflammation, acne, chronic fever, vomiting, nausea and jaundice. For this Ayurveda suggests administration of therapeutic purgation or a therapeutic laxative.

Nasya – Nasal Administration

The nose is the doorway to the brain and also the entry to one’s inner self. The nasal administration of medicated drops is recommended for excess body humorals accumulated in the sinuses, throat, nose or head areas. They are eliminated through the nearest possible opening – the nose.

The predominant location for Vata is the colon. Basti therapy involves the introduction of herbal decoctions and medicated oil preparations into the rectum. It relieves constipation, digestive problems, chronic fever, colds, sexual disorders, kidney stones, heart pains, backache, sciatica and various joint pains. Many other Vata disorders such as arthritis, rheumatism, gout, muscle spasms and headaches can also be treated with Basti.

The above-mentioned treatment plan is the general Panchakarma Detoxification therapy for a normal healthy person. However, our doctors will check your medical history and diagnose your present health condition before deciding the right treatment for you.
