An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! But where can we find that ounce of potion for immortality?
Our goal in life is to be healthy, enjoy life and stay away from pain and suffering. However, in reality many of us are far away from that goal. A vast majority of people suffer from heart problems, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, skin problems such as Psoriasis and Eczema or some other chronic disorder. Our environment has much to do with these problems.
Effect of Toxins- Regardless of our lifestyle, profession, eating habits or geographic location, toxins accumulate in our body everyday because they are present everywhere in our environment. Chemicals in our food and water worsen the problem. They build up over time, like a snowball rolling down a hill. While you cannot make a snowball from a single snowflake, accumulation of snowflakes becomes a snowball and it gets bigger and bigger with each additional snow flake. Same things happens with toxins in our body.
Many of these toxins or chemicals mimic hormones in our body and interfere with our endocrine system. Once absorbed by the body, they attack cells, distort the cell’s proper functioning, and refuse to get out of our system. Recently new methods have been developed to remove these toxins but they in-turn introduce other fat-soluble compounds into the system. Many times, these compounds themselves become toxic or cause serious adverse effects.
Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old practice of health has a rejuvenation procedure - Panchakarma that subtly removes the toxins from the mind and body. These procedures are designed to function synergistically to maximize the removal of toxins while maintaining the harmony of natural body functions. The purifying and eliminating actions of Panchakarma first dislodge the toxins from the cells and then flush them out through the organs of elimination—the sweat glands, colon and urinary tract.
Panchakarma procedures are being used successfully around the world and even show promising results in clinical trials. Many studies show increase in energy, appetite, and mental tranquility and decrease in diastolic blood pressure, blood cholesterol as well as chronic pain and stress.
WHAT IS Panchkarma?– The Detoxification Process in AYURVEDA
The word Panchkarma comes from classical Ayurvedic texts and means literally "five actions". Subtly harmonising purification procedures dissolve metabolic waste products and environmental toxins from the body's tissues in a gentle and effective way and eliminate them from the physiology. These extremely pleasant relaxing treatments enliven the bodies own self-healing powers bringing about a profound and lasting rejuvenation.
Panchkarma can be taken for as few as seven consecutive days to a more common fourteen days treatment and as many as thirty days and more.
“Healthy tissues bestow happiness and vitality.
- The Kashyapa Samhita Classical Ayurveda Text
Ayurveda basically emphasizes two types of therapy i.e.
The five fold purification therapy that seeks to correct the imbalance of the body's doshas or bio-energies (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) in order to maintain their inherent equilibrium. The Panchakarma therapy of Ayurveda comprises of five types of advanced treatment for elimination of vitiated Dosha (toxic materials) from the body.
· Vamana Karma (Emesis Therapy)
· Virechana Karma (Purification Therapy)
· Anuvasana Vasthi (Unctous enema Therapy)
· Nirooha Vasthi (Decoction Enema Therapy)
· Nasya Karma (Errhine Therapy)
Ayurveda is followed in a well-defined therapeutic structure, as preventive and curative methods, in order to deal with various ailments.
Shodanam (elimination)aims to remove excess Dosha (toxins) from the body. Shodanam includes Purvakarma (initial treatment) and Pradhanakarma known as Panchakarma (the main treatment comprising of five distinctive methods) and Paschathkarma (post treatment).
Rasayanam the rejuvenation therapy is aimed to restore the tissues through herbs and minerals. Rasayanam helps restore the vitality and leads to longevity and slowing or stopping of aging process. It compensates for wear and tear due to age and diseases. Rasayana chikitsa follows detoxification of the body through Panchakarma procedures. It presents youthfulness, energy, enhances memory and brilliance, nourishes the senses and ensures longevity.
Panchakarma- Methods and benefits
Vamanam- Emesis (Therapeutic Vomiting). When the congestion in lungs leads to bronchitis or asthma, therapeutic vomiting or Vamanam is administered to eliminate the Kapha causing excess mucus. Once the mucus is released, the congestion, wheezing and breathlessness comes down and the patient becomes comfortable. Vamanam is also suggested in the treatment of chronic asthma, cold, diabetes, congestion, indigestion and oedema.
Virechanam (Therapeutic Purgation) When excess Pitta (bile) is secreted and accumulated in the gal bladder, liver and small intestine, it results in rashes, skin inflammation, acne, and chronic fever, biliary vomiting, nausea and jaundice. Ayurveda suggests administration of therapeutic purgation or therapeutic laxative in such cases.
