Panchakarma - The Body Purification and Detoxification program
Panchakarma in Sanskrit means 'five actions' or 'five treatments' that includes the process of cleansing the body of toxins and rejuvenation of the body at a very deep level. Ayurveda highly recommends Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for elimination of factors causing diseases and maintaining an equilibrium of biological energies – Vata, Pita, and Kapha. Panchakarma therapy is a highly complex and sophisticated science of purification of the body-mind channel systems. The detoxification process involves three main stages; a modified diet and lifestyle are to be followed throughout these three stages.
