Panchakarma is a five-fold therapy.
Panchakarma is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind and consciousness. It is known for its beneficial effects on overall health, wellness and self-healing.
Below define five therapy of panchkarma :
Vamanam (Emesis Therapy or vomiting): This process is well supervised at The Ayurvedic Healing Village, by highly trained therapists at our certified Panchakarma hospital. Vamanam is induced to eliminate Kapha, which causes the excess mucus. Congestion in the lungs causes repeated attacks of bronchitis, cold and cough. Vamanam is the best treatment for Kapha-related diseases, as well as chronic skin disease such as psoriasis.
Virechanam (Purgation): The elimination of toxic matter from the intestines by administering therapeutic purgation or a therapeutic laxative, Virechanam is an especially effective cure in cases of jaundice and hemorrhoids.
Aasthaapana/Niruham: An enema using quath or Kashaya Vasti and combating vata dominant disease, (Vata is dominant in the colon). Vasti involves the introduction of a herbal concoction into the rectum, relieving constipation, kidney stones, backaches, sciatica and other types of joint pain.
Anuvaasan (Oil enema): This is given to patients suffering from diabetes, anemia and obesity. All Vata aggravated diseases, such as joint disorders, paralysis, constipation, arthritis, urinary and reproductive disorders benefit from the practice of Anuvaasan.
Nasyam: The inhalation of medicated oil through the nostrils, eliminating any excess of humours accumulated in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas. The patient’s body is massaged from the shoulders upwards, causing it to perspire. An exact dose of the herbal medicine is poured into the nostrils as the patient inhales. During the process, the area around the nose, neck, shoulders, palm and feet are rubbed. This is highly beneficial in conditions such as sinusitis, migraine, chronic cold and chest congestion. In case of hemiplegia and facial paralysis, nasyam is very effective.
