SPECIAL PROCEDURES IN AYURVEDIC PANCHAKARMA THERAPY

Panchakarma is an ancient method of purification therapy in Ayurveda, it is a fivefold cleansing & curative management process for the human body & to the deep-rooted dreaded ailments. It is to bring the aggravated dosha's into balance by eliminating the accumulated ‘ama’ (toxins) from the body through the normal modes of the excretory system as well as by emesis. Prior to the Panchakarma treatments, there is a set of preliminary (detoxification) treatments called ‘poorvakarma’. It is to bring the accumulated toxins from the tissues and cells to outside for an easy evacuation through orifices. The ‘poorvakarma’ is done in two ways that are by oleation and sudation. Those process would be done/administered for a period of 7 to 21 days according to the acute & chronic condition of the ailment.
