Ayurveda has given the world a considerable measure of things. These things have changed the way individuals live and they have made the progress from a world loaded with ailments to the world perfectly fit and healthy. The significance of Ayurveda is tremendous and it is without a doubt the main practice with regards to alternate forms of medicine.
Ostensibly the most eminent branch of Ayurveda is Panchakarma. The name Panchakarma literally means ``Five Actions`` which is well-suited given the fact that this technique relies upon five distinctive basic activities that control the body namely Vomiting, Purgation, Niruham, Anuvaasan, and Nasyam. In other words, Panchakarma healing technique is a pillar on which majority of Ayurvedic techniques stand.
Panchakarma works best with the utilization of medicated oils that helps in eliminating the impurities from the human body. Panchakarma is the true manifestation of the Ayurvedic values and it lives up to its reputation.
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 is a very pleasurable experience that is tailored to individual needs and may involve:
- Daily warm oil massage (abhyanga)
- Herbal steam therapy (swedana)
- Lymphatic massage
- Herbal enemas (basti)
- Nasal administrations (nasya)
- Other special treatments (see treatments below)
Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for maintaining mental and physical hygiene and balance.
