Abstract

Panchakarma, a treasure of our ancient medicinal system, effectively removes toxins from our body that are considered a source of many illnesses. Panchakarma is an Ayurvedic way of purifying our bodies through the detoxification process. The toxins are generally eliminated by the five therapies, namely Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya, and Rakthamoksha along with the Panchakarma regime. Detoxification helps strengthen our immune system and rejuvenate our body. Panchakarma helps in balancing the Tridoshas. In a nutshell, this facilitates achieving overall well-being of mind, body, and soul. While panchakarma is typically performed at an ayurvedic center by a skilled and trained ayurvedic doctor, it can also be carried out at home to accommodate factors like time and logistical limitations. Panchakarma is done at home by consuming a few simple home remedies and following an Ayurvedic regime. A few Panchkarma procedures can be done at home, but first we have to decide the type of procedure that could be useful for an individual. So, it's necessary to consult with the physician about Poorvakarma, Paschatkarma and suitable procedures according to Ritu, Roga and the individual's Prakriti.
