Why Panchakarma ? 

Panchakarma is Ayurveda's one of the ancient and important purification and detoxification treatments.

In Sanskrit, the word 'Panchakarma literally means "five therapies".They are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamoskshana

Although Panchakarma is a highly effective therapy, it can remain ineffective, if the person doesn't follow a special detoxification diet, along with the treatments. In this section, we have provided comprehensive information on Panchakarma therapy and its significance in Ayurveda.

Purification Therapy

Nasya Karma:-, Nasya therapy is a process wherein the herbalized oils and liquid medicines is administered through the nostrils. Since nose is the gateway of the head, the therapy is highly effective in curing a number of diseases pertaining to the head .

Vamana Therapy:- Vamana is therapeutic vomiting, which is a medicated emesis therapy. The kapha toxins accumulated in the body and the respiratory tract are effectively removed by Vamana . People with high imbalance of kapha are given this type of treatment, which loosens and mobilizes the toxins, in an effort to eliminate them from the body.

Virechana :- Virechana is the cleansing of the pitta and the purification of the blood toxins. Virechan can be administered directly.This eliminates the toxic or waste matters from the intestine. It also cures pitta or pitta-dominated diseases.

Basti Karma:-It concentrates on the elimination of the loosened vata dosha out through the rectum. The treatment involves the introduction of medicinal substances, such as, herbal oils and decoctions in a liquid medium, into the rectum of the person. This is because vata is predominantly located in the colon and bones.

Raktamoksha Therapy (Blood Letting) :- Raktamoksha entails the refinement of blood, hence administered to treat disorders pertaining to skin, such as urticaria, rash, eczema, acne, scabies, leucoderma, chronic itching and hives.
