Ayurvedic rules say that a lack of balance in the three biological energies (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) leads to sicknesses. They are caused by a bad diet, sleep disturbances, stress, environmental pollution, and the bio toxins that are accumulating in our bodies.
Panchakarma is a cleansing treatment that removes deeply embedded toxins from our organisms. Panchakarma lasts for a minimum of 7 days (sometimes even 14 days or longer).
Before undergoing a Panchakarma treatment, the Patient has to undergo the Purva Karma procedure. It is conducted to strengthen the patient’s body and make it susceptible to being cleansed.
During this period the patient is given all-rounded care, with a detailed daily itinerary, a diet, and special procedures called Snehana, Svedana, Dipana, and Pachana.
