Panchakarma is an intensive cleansing treatment that follows the samhitas of Ayurveda like Charaka Samhita , Vagbhat etc. Panchakarma therapy is both preventive for healthy people to maintain and improve excellent cellular function, and curative for those experiencing disease. It is a complex and sophisticated science of purification of the body/mind channel systems, and is therefore best supervised/performed by an Ayurvedic physician. The medical scriptures of Ayurveda give the example of a diseased person’s body as a soiled cloth, unable to accurately render the dye colors . To succeed in assimilating the true color, the cloth must first become clean.

Panchakarma, which literally means five actions, is essentially about purification of the body along with many other other benefits.The five actions of Panchakarma according to Charaka Samhitha are Vamana (therapeutic emesis), Verechana (therapeutic purgation), Kashaya Vasti and Sneha Vasti (two kinds of medicated enemas) and Nasya ( nasal medication )where as Acharya sushruta have mention Raktamokshan as fifthe karma.

It is preceded by a preparatory process called Poorvakarma. At this stage the body is prepared for removing “toxins” first through Snehanam which makes the body uncyuous or oily internally and externally , and second through Swedanam which means therapeutic sweating , Deepan and pachan which means improving metabolism . Once the preparatory stage is completed, the doctor will prescribe appropriate karma among Panchakarma procedures depending on each individuals conditions. The third and final stage of treatment is Samana or Paschatkarma where the patient undergoes corrective measures through medicines, moderate therapeutic treatments, appropriate diet and activities for the body and mind. On completion of the Panchakarma treatment, the imbalances that lead to diseases in the individual is stabilized and brought to equilibrium.
