Amenorrhea is a condition in which a female is unable to get her menstrual cycle, even when she should be getting them as per her age and other factors.
If a female has attained puberty, is not pregnant and has not reached the menopause stage, then it is expected that she will get her menstrual cycle on time. Women who are breastfeeding also face the issue of missing their periods, which is common. Amenorrhea is different than having irregular periods because, in case of irregular periods, they do not come on time or come when they are not expected or maybe they would last for an unusual number of days. Whereas in amenorrhea, the female body does not get the periods at all. This is not considered a disease, but there are chances that it could be an abnormal condition which should be reported to the doctor for further diagnosis. The doctor can advise whether the condition is fine for that woman or if it should be treated.
There are essentially two kinds of amenorrhea: Primary and secondary. Primary amenorrhea occurs in young females when they do not get their periods even by the age of 16. Secondary amenorrhea is when a woman who used to have regular or normal periods, stop getting them for three or more than three months in a row. For some, this number could be six instead of three. The existence of primary amenorrhea is not as common as secondary amenorrhea.
The most apparent symptom of this condition is the absence of periods for a few months. After that, it depends on the reason why a woman is facing this issue. Based on the causes, there could be a presence of other symptoms as well, some of which are given below:
3.Changes in the eyesight/vision.
4.More hairs on the face than usual.
5.Milky discharge from the nipples.
6.Pain in the pelvic area
Causes of Amenorrhea:
The causes of primary amenorrhea are different from that of secondary amenorrhea. It is more difficult to diagnose the cause of primary amenorrhea, but some of the reasons could be as follows:
2. Some issue in the nervous system which comprises of the spinal cord and brain.
3. Problems with the pituitary gland which is responsible for generating that hormone which plays a role in the menstruation.
4. Problem with the reproductive organs.
In the case of secondary amenorrhea, the list of causes is huge. Apart from normal causes like pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause, there are many causes which might or might not be considered as normal. For example, a side-effect of some medicine might cause this problem. Below is the list of causes and how they affect the menstruation cycle:
1. Use of contraceptives, in general, can sometimes negatively affect the menstruation of the female body. Taking birth control pills might as well stop the menstrual flow. If the contraceptives are used orally, injected or even implanted, the effect can appear. This also applies to intrauterine devices. It is also noted that when a female stops taking these contraceptives, then also it may take time for their menstrual periods to come back again.
2. There are certain classes of medications which causes amenorrhea. These could be anti-depressants, blood pressure related drugs, any medicines taken to cure allergies, chemotherapy to treat cancer and antipsychotics.
3. Many times lifestyle habits make a difference and can cause amenorrhea. Following factors related to the lifestyle of the woman can cause the problem:
a) Very low body weight- When the body weight is too low, the hormonal system might not function properly. Especially those women who have eating disorders like bulimia or anorexia are prone to an imbalance in their hormonal system.
b) Some women who are involved in excessive physical training or workout face this problem. For example, athletes who do physical exercises every day for a few hours can face this issue. This is because in such cases, stress levels can rise, and the body consumption of energy is also very high. The body weight could also be lower than required.
c) Mental stress: Having mental stress can have a big impact on that part of the brain which is responsible for managing those hormones which control the menstrual cycle. That part of the brain is known as the hypothalamus. Stress can cause amenorrhea or irregular periods as well. When women come out of stress, their periods generally get normal again.
4. In general, hormonal imbalance is one of the biggest factors behind amenorrhea. There are lots of reasons why this imbalance happens:
a) Most popular reasons for hormonal imbalance in today’s time is PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome). This causes the levels of hormones to be higher and maintained. This is not the case for normal menstruation. In normal menstruation cycle, the levels of hormones do fluctuate and vary.
b) When the thyroid gland does not function properly, it can lead to a hormonal imbalance. When the gland is overactive, that condition is known as hyperthyroidism and when those glands are underactive, it is called as hypothyroidism. Both these conditions can not only cause irregular periods but can also cause amenorrhea.
c) There could be a presence of a non-cancerous tumour in the pituitary gland which can disturb the hormonal balance.
d) Premature menopause: The normal age of menopause is around 50. But some women can reach the menopause stage after 40. The eggs might not produce after that age, which causes amenorrhea.
5. Issues with reproductive and sexual organs can also cause irregular period and even amenorrhea. There are varied types of problems that can happen in the reproductive organs. Some of them are:
a) Abnormality of the vagina: There could be some issue with the structure of the vagina, like the presence of an obstruction which can prevent the blood flow from the uterus and cervix towards the outside.
b) Asherman’s syndrome: In this syndrome, the lining of the uterus builds up a scar tissue. This can happen after dilation and curettage (D&C), a treatment of uterine fibroids or event after caesarean section. This tissue build-up can prevent the normal levels of build-up and shedding.
c) The absence of reproductive organs: This problem is usually by birth where the foetus does not develop part of the reproductive system completely. For example, it could be the absence of the cervix or uterus. These kinds of cases will cause primary amenorrhea because it is scientifically impossible for them to have periods if a vital reproductive organ is missing.
The diagnosis of amenorrhea is straight-forward. If a female, who used to have periods before are not having periods for more than 3 months in a row, then they should visit the doctor. For girls who have reached the age of 15 and still did not get their first period, this could be a sign that something might be abnormal and visit a doctor is advised. The doctor would check the weight and ask questions about the female like their medical history and other things like:
1. The starting age of the menstruation.
2. If the female is sexually active- which can lead to pregnancy.
3. If there have been any weight fluctuations or a recent change in lifestyle.
4. What kind of physical regime do they follow or if there has been a change in it recently?
5. Questions about the menstrual cycle like a number of days of the cycle, about the amount of flow (whether it is heavy or light) and for how long they last.
Based on that, he may prescribe some tests which can help in finding the cause of missing periods. With the help of the results, the doctor can make out whether it is amenorrhea or something else.
There are various kinds of tests to check for this problem, but it depends on the cause that the doctor has suspected. For example, Ultra-sound of lower abdomen checks the ovaries and their condition. There are also thyroid tests and hormones tests which help in finding out the true picture of the condition of the hormonal system.
Preventing amenorrhea is not completely in the hands of the female. There could be some reasons which cannot be helped, but if they maintain a healthy lifestyle, then chances of getting amenorrhea are reduced.
1. Maintaining body weight, taking a healthy diet and not stressing out are some things they can do.
2. It is also important to keep a check of the cycle and report to the doctor on time without waiting for more months.
3. Smoking and alcohol consumption should be checked because it can have a very negative impact on the reproductive system of the female body.
4. If the female is taking some medications which are related to the hormones, like birth control pills or drugs to maintain hormonal levels, then those medications should strictly be taken as prescribed by the doctor. Some of the drugs are to be started from the certain day of the month and these kinds of medications should not be skipped unless specified by the doctor.
5. Stress is a very harmful condition, not just for the reproductive system, but also for the digestive system. Stress should be avoided and things like meditation, yoga or simple morning or evening walk among nature can help in relaxing and relieving stress. If the conditions are worse, then a counselling session can be very helpful. Those sessions are good as a guide on how to handle difficult situations. Everyone has their own way to feel relaxed and those should not be avoided because of the daily routine.
Treatment of Amenorrhea :
The treatment of this problem is dependent on the cause. Doctors treat the exact cause of this issue. For example, if there is something wrong with the lifestyle of the female, then the doctors will advise changing it and then see the effect on the body. If the female is going through rigorous exercises, then a change of diet plan might be required so that the body can cope up with that level of physical workout. When women have mental stress, the doctors advise them to go for psychological therapy.
Some women lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time by following rigorous physical regime or change in diet plans. These things should not be done without any professional advice. Consultation with a doctor or a dietician or a certified trainer is highly suggested.
If there is something wrong with the thyroid glands, then doctors prescribe medicines for it.
Many women who have PCOS suffer from irregular periods or amenorrhea. In such cases, losing weight is the most important thing. These days, because of the sedentary lifestyle, this issue has become very common and for its treatment, it is required to get involved in exercises and reduce the fat around the waist and hip area of the body.
Some women also might have to go for hormone replacement therapy, if advised by the doctor.
In case the female body has incomplete or abnormal reproductive organs, then a surgery might help but even the surgery cannot guarantee that they can have normal menstrual periods.
In case the female is near about 40-50 age and even after all the treatments the periods don’t come back, then it might mean that they have reached menopause.
Complications of Amenorrhea :
Women who face the issue of amenorrhea, also face the following complications:
1. Infertility: When there are no menstrual periods, it becomes impossible to get pregnant.
2. Osteoporosis: In case the female body has attained menopause, the chances of getting osteoporosis increases. The chances of this also increase when the estrogen levels are low. In osteoporosis, the bones get weak. Taking calcium supplements might help in this case.
Myths about Amenorrhea:
Myth #1: When women talk about amenorrhea, they think that only those women who are overweight are prone to this problem. This is not completely true. Over-weight women are prone, but so are underweight women as well as those who have a hormonal imbalance due to any other reason. Also, it is believed that once a female recovers from amenorrhea, they will not be able to get pregnant which is false as well. If the periods are normal after recovery, chances of being pregnant are normal as well.
Myth #2 : Most women face issues with their periods at least once in their lifetime. However, if the issues that you face are serious, such as missing periods for 3 or more months then you must consult your gynaecologist and get a diagnosis done for Amenorrhea.
Gluten is a common thing found in many foods and some people are allergic to this food. When the immune system of the body overreacts to the gluten in food items, it leads to a condition called Celiac disease. Most often, the immune system overreacts to foods like wheat and barley. This can affect the ability of the small intestine to absorb vitamins and minerals and lead to various health complications. While the symptoms are obvious in most cases, it can also be hidden in some people. There is no treatment available for this condition and staying away from gluten food forever is the most suitable remedy.
Types of Celiac Disease
- Classic Celiac Disease: The most common symptoms of this condition are diarrhoea, lack of absorption, steatorrhea, bloating of the abdominal area and loss of weight. It generally affects adults and even children can also get affected in some cases. In children, the bones tend to get weaker and they do not have much energy due to this reason. Also, the appetite will get affected leading to weight loss.
- Atypical Celiac Disease: In this condition, people do not experience the regular symptoms and they usually experience mild discomfort with digestion and lack of energy. This is due to iron deficiency and also leads to a chronic fatigue condition. Some people also experience tingling of the feet and hands or numbness in the region. In severe cases, it can also lead to infertility and depression.
- Asymptomatic Celiac Disease: This is also called silent celiac disease as there are no regular symptoms of the disease. On the other hand, they experience other issues like joint pain and loss of bone density. In some cases, there can be excess fluids in the tissues leading to Edema.
Symptoms of Celiac Disease
The symptoms vary slightly for children and adult patients.
General symptoms for children
- Diarrhoea: If you notice this condition frequently, it is time to approach your doctor as it can be the clear symptom of celiac disease. It happens due to the lack of digestion ability in the body.
- Constipation: While some children tend to develop diarrhoea, some others have constipation problems due to the same condition. The food does not get processed properly in the intestine and it leads to constipation in the long run.
- Bloating of the stomach region: This is a common condition and many children have such symptoms. They tend to get full even after eating a small meal and this reduces the food intake by a huge margin in some cases. All these conditions can later lead to weight loss.
- Loss of weight: This is a clear sign of Celiac disease and you should immediately approach your doctor. After careful examination, they will determine the cause and provide proper suggestions to handle the situation. When children are suffering from this condition, the body does not digest food properly and it reduces the intake of food due to bloating of the stomach. In the long run, this leads to weight loss and general anaemia.
General symptoms for adults
- Pain in the abdominal region: This is usually the result of gas formation in the body and bloating of the stomach. It can cause a lot of pain regularly and you should never neglect this symptom.
- Anaemia: When you are suffering from Celiac disease, the ability of the body to absorb minerals and vitamins reduces drastically and this leads to general anaemia. The blood cells will not be able to carry enough oxygen due to lack of iron. The blood flow to the vital organs gets reduced leading to restlessness and general weakness.
- Rashes: This symptom is usually a result of general weakness and having celiac disease adds to this problem.
- Migraine: When the blood is not able to carry enough oxygen to the brain, it leads to migraine and you should take iron supplements to counter the situation.
- Mouth Ulcers and heartburn: Many people face such problems due to the lack of essential vitamins and minerals in the body. The small intestine loses its ability to completely absorb nutrients and this leads to such problems.
- Loss of weight: As the stomach gets bloated even after eating small quantities of food due to the formation of gas in the body, it gives a fuller feeling and people generally tend to eat less in this situation. Along with that, the lack of nutrients can lead to weight loss for many people.
Causes of Celiac Disease
- The exact cause for Celiac Disease is not known and it is usually due to a combination of different factors.
- When you eat gluten foods, your body does not take it easily and it tends to react by giving some symptoms.
- Even general infections of the gastrointestinal tract can lead to this condition.
- Due to the overreaction of the body to gluten, the small intestine gets damaged and loses its ability to absorb minerals and vitamins from the food. The villi in the small intestine usually get affected after eating gluten food and this weakens the small intestine.
- You will be surprised to know that Celiac disease is very common and it affects about 1 person in every hundred in most western countries.
- It is more common among people suffering from type 1 diabetes and who have autoimmune thyroid disease.
Diagnosis of Celiac Disease
- Begin with a gluten diet for detection: Many people have a general understanding about the Celiac disease and generally stay away from gluten foods to avoid such problems. If you are on a gluten-free diet, you need to get off the routine for some time during the diagnosis phase. Your doctor will introduce slight amounts of gluten to your diet to monitor the reaction of the body and this will be the first method used by them to test for Celiac disease. However, this should be clearly avoided during pregnancy as it can lead to other complications.
- Blood Test: the most common method used is the Serology test that detects the antibodies in the blood. When there is a drastic increase in the level, it indicates some adverse reaction to gluten food.
- HLA Genetic Test: This is usually done after the blood test and it tests for human leukocyte antigens in the body.
- Endoscopy: Finally, few people may be advised to undergo endoscopy to determine the overall condition of the intestine. The biopsy is conducted carefully to assess the villi damage and this determines the stage of the disease.
Prevention of Celiac Disease
Unfortunately, there is no way in which you can prevent this disease. However, when you have this disease, you can take care of and prevent the symptoms by indulging in a gluten-free diet. It is a good idea to eat more fruits and vegetables along with seafood and meat. It is also important to note that Rice is gluten-free and you can freely include it in your everyday diet.
Treatment for Celiac Disease
- Eating a gluten-free diet: This is probably the only thing you can do when it comes to treating Celiac disease. Remember that there is no foolproof treatment available for this condition and you should take care of your eating habits throughout your life. This needs lifelong care about your diet and always make sure that you read the labels for gluten content. It is very easy to manage a good nutritional gluten-free diet after consulting your doctor. They may even refer you to a dietician and you can follow the guidelines given by them and get some relief for your health problems.
- Nutritional supplements: It is important to get a regular dose of vitamins and minerals so that your body can function to the optimum level. Make sure that you include calcium and iron supplements along with Vitamins K, D and B12 as they enhance the overall functioning of your body and you can cope up with the symptoms in a better way. Your doctor will be the best person to prescribe the suitable vitamin supplement needed for your body after careful examination.
- The decrease in bone density: This happens due to lack of calcium in the body. With celiac disease limiting the efficiency of the intestine, it will not be able to absorb enough calcium through food source and the bones become weaker in the long run. This leads to osteoporosis in some cases due to a decrease in bone density.
- Lactose intolerance: In normal condition, the lactose is digested by the small intestine. When you are suffering from Celiac Disease, the intestine will not be able to digest the lactose and you become intolerant to lactose. This means that drinking milk and other substances containing lactose can affect your health condition.
- Malnutrition: As the ability of the small intestine to absorb vitamins and minerals from the food decreases, people tend to become nutrient deficient and this leads to malnutrition. In general, you will notice lack of calcium, iron, zinc and other essential vitamins in people suffering from this condition. This condition affects both children as well as adults.
- Infertility: This condition affects women more than men and they find it difficult to get pregnant. Even when they manage to get pregnant, the chances of miscarriage increases a lot with such condition. Not having enough nutrition can also increase the chances of getting a miscarriage when you are suffering from celiac disease.
- Cancer: In some cases, having celiac disease can lead to Lymphoma where the immunity is damaged very badly and cancer cells begin to thrive in the body. However, not every person suffering from Celiac disease will develop cancer and it happens only in a few cases.
Myths about Celiac Disease
Myth #1: Rice contains gluten:
This is completely false and you can include rice in your regular diet. This is a good alternative to other foods like wheat and barley and it is very safe for people suffering from Celiac Disease. Always read the food labels to know if it contains any gluten and you can easily avoid such foods in this manner.
Myth #2: Low amounts of gluten are alright:
If you are suffering from Celiac Disease, you should be very strict with your food habits and always avoid gluten at any cost. Remember that even low amounts of gluten in the food can affect your health. In some cases, even when you eat food that is contaminated with other gluten foods, the symptoms can trigger immediately and spoil your health.
Myth #3: Celiac problem is generic food allergy:
This is not a food allergy and it is an autoimmune disease. If proper care is not taken about this condition, it can severely affect the health condition in the long run. Medical examination and guidance are necessary to handle the problem. The working of the small intestine can get affected due to this condition and this leads to malnutrition and overall weakness in the long run.
Myth #4: Celiac disease is a genetic problem:
This is not true and people with a family history of celiac disease need not always get this autoimmune disease. However, the chances of getting this disease increases when it is combined with other factors.
When you are diagnosed with Celiac disease, there is no need to panic as it can be managed effectively when you have a strict gluten-free diet. Always take the help of your dietician to manage your everyday diet and this will help you to avoid gluten foods. When you stay away from gluten foods for a few months, you can notice a significant improvement in the overall health condition. In some cases, when the damage to the intestine is too much, doctors can even suggest some medications to control the damage. With proper care, it becomes easy to manage the condition. However, you must remember that the fight must continue for the rest of your life and you should get adjusted to a gluten-free diet so that your immune system does not get agitated in any manner in future.
Kapha is essentially composed out of earth and water components. It is heavy, slow, cool, sleek, smooth, delicate, thick, stable, gross, and cloudy. Kapha provides structure and robustness to all things; it gives the cohesiveness needed to maintain a particular form. Kapha additionally hydrates all cells and frameworks, lubricates the joints, saturates the skin, maintains immunity and safeguards the tissues. Kapha is often associated with water energy, and with love and compassion.
The kapha body is physically solid, compact and wide with extensive thighs, hips, bums, and chest and has a tendency to be perpetually overweight. Kapha types ordinarily have large, appealing eyes that are blue or dark in color. Their skin is fair, cool and always glowing. Kapha hair is thick, extravagant, and abundant, typically blond or dark, and wavy. Kapha individuals tend to over-produce mucus and other milky secretions, and their voices are delicate, regularly obstructed by excess mucus. Kapha types are extremely elegant, have a natural, erotic sensuality about them, and are generally very fertile.
Kapha individuals love heat and they suffer in cold, damp climates. Kapha types emanate strength and balance, to such an extent that vata and pitta types are frequently replenished by simply being in their essence. Kapha types are dedicated however they generally prefer to lay low, even to the point of lethargy. Due to their inclination towards laziness, kapha types do best to focus on a non-sedantory life, following a strict schedule that keeps them moving. Among all the doshas, kapha types can persist and advantage from the most intense forms of exercise. Ideally, a kapha type would rise before 6 a.m., take a bath and perform a solid workout before breakfast.
Diet to be consumed-
- Consume low fat milk. Always boil milk before drinking it which makes it easy to digest, try adding turmeric or ginger to the milk before boiling it in order to diminish any Kapha-increasing qualities in the milk.
- Eat lighter fruits like apples and pears. Avoid heavy and sour fruits like oranges, banana, dates, figs, pineapples, coconuts, melons and avocados. These fruits can increase Kapha in the body.
- Reduce consuming sugar products since they aggravate kapha in the body. However, honey can be consumed, it is excellent in balancing kapha.
- Beans can be taken except tofu
- Avoid eating nuts
- Grains can be taken especially barley and millet. Avoid consuming too much wheat and rice because it increases kapha
- All spices can be taken except for salt
- Avoid tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, sweet potatoes as they increase kapha
How to consume the diet
With regard to pacifying Kapha, how we eat can profoundly affect our level of progress. Kapha does well to stick to three meals each day, and sometimes only two meals are adequate. It's likewise best to eat your meals at consistent times from one day to the next. You can additionally kindle a sluggish digestive fire around 30 minutes before lunch and dinner by chewing a piece of fresh ginger with a pinch of sea salt, a couple of drops of lime juice, and about ¼ teaspoon nectar. This readies the digestive framework to get the food and to process it viably. Amid meals, it is essential to eat in a quiet and peaceful domain and to give your complete attention to the process of being nourished so that your body shows satisfaction. This will help lessen overeating and emotional eating, which frequently torments kapha. Fast foods, desserts and exorbitant amount of bread and other comfort foods can be particularly kapha provoking. However, it might be difficult to stay away from all kapha-exasperating nourishments. Though, the impeding capability of these nourishments can be limited by ensuring that they are served warm, with the help of heating medicinal plants, and taken in small quantities as recommend by Ayurveda. Lastly, because kapha digestion is generally slow and has a tendency to manage vitality with or without food, occasional fasts or cleanses can be exceptionally useful. A fruit or juice (think apple or pomegranate), or a more extended mono eating routine of kitchari can be exceptionally supportive.
Kapha sleep and energy cycles
Kapha individuals can sleep for long durations, for the most part on their stomachs or in the fetal position. They commonly sleep for eight to twelve hours for every night and can indulge on more sleep than they truly require. Ideally, kapha types require to sleep for around seven hours each night. If a kapha individual sleeps past 6 a.m. when kapha becomes dominating in the environment they may find it quiet hard to get up from the bed, and may encounter an enduring feeling of heaviness and laziness throughout the day. Thus, kapha individuals do really great when they wake up before 6 a.m. Read more on how to remove kapha from body.

One should eat very light dinner that consists of soups and salads and sit quietly for at least five minutes for food to settle in the body. Thereafter, again take a slow, leisurely walk for five to 15 minutes to help aid digestion and be relaxed and calm. Like mentioned earlier, always avoid heavy exercising after the sunset and instead indulge in reading inspirational books. You can also enjoy a relaxing or warm bath before going to bed by adding few drops of aromatic oils like rose, lavender etc. For the pitta dosha individuals, it is always better to sleep early before 10 pm.
For those individuals with aggravated pitta, they must always indulge in abhyanga or self-oil massage. It not only helps in keeping the mind and nerves calm and peaceful, but also relieves the body of dryness. A soft and supple skin is always happy. According to ayurveda, skin is said to be the primary seat of pitta dosha and hence it is very important to keep it healthy and glowing. As part of the pitta daily routine, one must always cleanse, moisturize and scrub the skin regularly and also use skin massage oils to keep the blood circulation also proper.

A large number of patients encounter a "recuperating emergency." This is a very natural part of the healing procedure, and might be viewed as a beneficial step towards the ideal wellbeing.
Panchakarma Treatment Purifies the Body and Mind
According to Ayurveda, great wellbeing relies on our ability to completely process all parts of life, absorbing what supports and disposing of the rest. When we can't properly digest our food, experiences, and feelings, toxins aggregate in our bodily tissues, causing imbalance and eventually making you sick. Panchakarma is an exquisite purging procedure that discharges stored toxins and reestablishes the body's natural healing ability.
At the point when our digestion power or energies, known as Agni (fire), are strong, we make strong and healthy tissues, wipe out waste items effectively, and deliver an inconspicuous embodiment called Ojas. Ojas, which might be imagined as the deepest sap of our psychophysiology, is the reason for clarity of perception, physical strength and immunity. On the other side, if our Agni is debilitated, digestion is deficient and makes toxins that get sorted in the body. This toxic deposit is known as Ama.
The foundation of Health and Well-being
At the point when ama accumulates in the body, it hinders the flow of vitality, information, and nourishment throughout the framework. Ayurveda considers this accumulation of toxins as the basic cause for all diseases. A typical case of this is the collection of saturated fat and cholesterol that is past the body's ability to process. After some time, this prompts the blockage of the blood vessels and arteries and, also leads to cardiac arrest.
While it's easy to understand agni and ama in terms of food, it's critical to recollect that your brain and heart are persistently digesting energy and information, At present your digestive powers are working to separate these thoughts into segments that your intellect can absorb. Likewise, your emotional agni is in charge of processing your feelings and emotions, including the grin of a loved one, startling feedback at work, or the excitement of a new relationship.
Restoring the body’s innate balance
When your emotional agni is efficient, you can withdraw anything that is nourishing and eliminate the rest. The inability to metabolize feelings creates the same amount of toxic residue as undigested nourishment. Truth be told, repressed outrage, long-held misery, and lingering guilt are more disturbing for many people than issues with physical assimilation.
In order to experience optimal health, it is essential to maintain a strong digestive fire and dispose toxins from the body. Panchakarma is a natural treatment that detoxifies and reinstates the body’s inner balance and energy.
