Panchakarma - Treatment, Procedure And Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Derived from the Sanskrit word Panchakarma means the “five actions” or “five treatments”. This is one of the critical processes in Ayurveda that is used to clean the body of toxic materials. Thanks to the lifestyle we follow our body finds it difficult to get rid of the harmful toxins naturally. Panchakarma treatment does this effectively. An individual’s poor dietary habits, no exercise patterns, lifestyle have changed a lot, and as a result, the hormones and agents which regulate the body’s inherent richness have become redundant. This can lead to the spread of toxins throughout the body resulting in various diseases. The waste matter is known as “ama” in Ayurveda. Ama is a foul-smelling, sticky, harmful fluid that needs to be completely removed from the body. Panchakarma aims to do that and correct the imbalances by eliminating the adverse amas out of your system. The treatment basically involves daily massages and oil baths, herbal enemas, nasal administrations. It is a very pleasurable and rejuvenating experience for both the body and the soul. Ayurveda would recommend Panchakarma as a traditional treatment for maintaining a good physical hygiene and mental balance. Many of the ayurvedic treatments channel panchakarma and form the base in all its therapy methods. Due to this nature, the treatments are widely popular all over the globe.

How is the treatment done?

Panchakarma is often called a five-fold therapy. It is customized to suit every individual, based on the needs of the person. It varies a lot and depends on the Ayurvedic constitutional type, the individual’s doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength and immune strength. Depending on the needs, all or only parts of the five therapies are utilized. Sometimes two or three of the therapies are linked together to form the basis of the treatment. Some of the treatments can include “Abhyanga”. This is an individually prepared herbal-oil massage designed to deeply penetrate deep into the skin and relax the mind and body. They also help in the breakup of the impurities and vastly help in the removal of the stagnant waste from the body. Shirodhara is a treatment where warm herbalized oil is poured over the forehead systematically and methodically. They are beneficial in synchronizing the brain waves and have a calming effect on the body as a whole. Garshana treatments consist of dry skin brushing with either soft wool or a silk glove. The purpose of this treatment is to enhance blood circulation and clean the skin of impurities. Swedana is an herbalized steam bath, during which the head and the heart are kept cool while the body is heated systematically to remove the physical toxins accumulated deep within the tissues. Pizichili is the most famous forms and involves a continuous stream of warm herbalized oil poured over the body and massaged in perfect unison. The warmth of the oil penetrates deep into the tissues and rejuvenates the entire body.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Ayurvedic treatments have been tested and perfected across centuries. They are extremely safe, and the treatments can be taken up by anyone irrespective of the age. Middle aged people are better candidates for such treatments as they are more prone to the physical strains of their day to day life.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

Pregnant women and people who are older than 75 can avoid these treatments as some of the herbal remedies might not suit them. On the whole, Ayurveda is one of the safest forms of treatment and can be undertaken by anyone.

Are there any side effects?

No, there are no side effects. Initially, after the treatment, your body might experience a temperature rise and sudden fever. But this is a natural phenomenon as this is your body’s way of getting rid of the toxins. Few individuals can experience cold for few days as the herbs, and the oil use can cool your body. But these symptoms are very much temporary and should heal within a few days.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

You might be asked to take herbal tonics or herbal syrups for a few days after the treatment. You might be asked to change your diet patterns so that the herbal remedies work effectively. Apart from these, there are no specific guidelines to follow. Your Ayurvedic doctor would be the best person to suggest on this based on your body pattern.

How long does it take to recover?

No, there is no recovery period involved, and you can get back to your regular duties immediately post the treatment. Usually, these types of remedies are done in sessions. Hence make sure that you follow these sessions religiously as a break in the pattern cannot get the results that you desire.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The treatment plans can consist of multiple sessions, and these can range between 1,200 INR to 1,500 INR per day. Also, ensure that these treatments and therapies are done at professional ayurvedic centers and which has been existence for a long time. These can make all the difference in getting your body supple and free of toxins.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

No, the results of the treatment are not permanent. It depends on a lot of factors like your lifestyle, work nature, your diet, etc. It is best recommended to have these types of treatments once or twice a year for better benefits. The success of the therapies depends on how much you change your lifestyle and your dietary habits.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

There are many alternatives to these treatments, but most of them do follow the same baseline of the Panchakarma therapies. Most of them are massage based, and you can opt for an ayurvedic massage which is similar to them.

Detoxing Your Body - Ayurvedic Approach Can Be Of Help!

Detoxing Your Body - Ayurvedic Approach Can Be Of Help!

It is necessary that you detoxify your body after regular intervals because with detoxification, you do not just remove the dangerous toxins from your body but also increase the vitality of your body.

In Ayurveda, all natural ingredients are used for detoxification. Ayurveda works wonders in cleansing the blood by removing impurities and toxins, accumulated in various organs of the body such as the liver, intestines, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs and skin. It is equally effective in case of both healthy and unhealthy individuals. While the unhealthy person gets rid of the chronic diseases, the healthy person becomes fit enough to prevent diseases and stay physically and mentally fit.

  1. Panchakarma: Panchakarma is Ayurveda's primary purification and detoxification treatment. Panchakarma means "five therapies". These 5 therapeutic treatments eliminate toxins from the body, they are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamoskshana. The series of these five therapies help remove deep rooted stress and illness-causing toxins from the body while balancing the doshas (energies that govern all biological functions). 
  2. Nasya: Nasya or nasal administration is a procedure of cleaning the accumulated Kapha from the head and neck region. At first, the face, head and chest is massaged thoroughly using certain herbal oil which promotes perspiration. The excess mucus accumulated in the throat, sinus and head is drained out through the nearest opening- the nose. This treatment helps in treating sinusitisheadachesmigraineRhinitis, facial palsy, paralysisinsomniafrozen shoulder and neurological dysfunctions. It is also effective in improving eyesight and memory.
  3. Abhyanga: It is a combination of long strokes and synchronized soothing that helps in restoring balance, harmony and composure in the body. Your body is massaged with oil in seven different positions and the type of oil is chosen based on the body equilibrium. It stimulates healing at a micro-cellular level as the oils get absorbed in the intra-follicular and intra-dermal layers of the skin. It helps you to steer clear of tiredness and enhances immunity and sleep. It cures psychological imbalances and fosters flexibility in the joints and muscles, thus rendering softness to the skin glands.
  4. Shirodhara: In this therapy, warm medicated oil is continuously poured on your forehead for about 30 to 45 minutes followed by a 15 to 20 minutes Abhyanga massage. Depending on your body type, milk, oil, buttermilk or herbal decoctions are used to boost up the therapeutic effect of the treatment. It provides deep relaxation to your central nervous system and rejuvenates it. Shirodhara oil regulates the functioning of your hormonal system too, eliminating ailments such as high blood pressure, migraine, anxiety and headaches. Medicated buttermilk massage treatment helps treat diabetes while medicated milk serves as a good remedy for insomnia as well.
  5. Kati Vasti: This is a form of sedation therapy (procedure to induce sweat without the use of heat) that helps to ease lower back pain caused due to inter-vertebral inflammation. Vasti is two types Niruha vast that is vasti with medicated decoction and other is Anuvasana vasti that is vasti with medicated oil. Like other therapy, vasti has also pre-therapeutic and post-therapeutic techniques. Pre-therapeutic includes snehana lubrication internally and externally and also swedana sweat therapy. These poorvakarma help in loosening and liquefying the toxins accumulated in cells and get collected in the colon. After the application of herbal medicines, this toxin collected in colon is eliminated out.
  6. Basti (Enema or Colonic Irrigation): The term 'Basti' stands for a pouch or bag. The procedure involves introducing ayurvedic liquid and herbal concoctions made of oils and milk through the perineum or anus or the vaginal opening in women in order to cleanse and heal the lower part of the body and remove the toxins accumulated in this part through the colon and urinary tract. Basti is considered as the mother of all Panchakarma treatments. It cleanses the accumulated toxins from all the 3 doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, through the colon. Basti is also highly beneficial as a rejuvenating treatment. Medicated oil or ghee and a herbal decoction are given an enema to clean the colon and increase the muscle tone. This treatment is provided for several days, based on the medical condition of a person. It provides treatment for: For Hemiplegia, Paraplegia, Colitis, Convalescence, Cervical SpondylosisIrritable Bowel SyndromeConstipationDigestive disorders, Backache & Sciatica, Hepatomegaly & Splenomegaly, Obesity, Piles, Sexual Debility & Infertility

It is always better to practice these under the advice of an expert Ayurveda practitioner.

Panchakarma - Your Go-To Treatment For Female Infertility!

B.A.M.S, M.D In Ayurvedic Medicine

Panchakarma - Your Go-To Treatment For Female Infertility!

Ayurveda is one of the oldest medicinal schools in the world, accessed by Indians far before the advent of allopathic medicines. One of the leading Ayurvedic treatment procedures is Panchakarma. It involves 5 stages of treatment – emesis, purgation, decoction enema, insertion of medicine through nostrils, and oil enema. But did you know the lesser known fact? Panchakarma can be highly beneficial for the treatment of female infertility as well.

1.) It helps in increasing both physical and mental fitness.
Panchakarma is a part of Ayurveda – which means it has to include holistic fitness therapies like yoga. Now, yoga has a number of proven health benefits, one of which is stress removal and mental rejuvenation. Stress, being, one of the greatest killers of the 21st century and a major cause of female infertility, Panchakarma ensures your condition does not relapse. In addition, with the diet charts that generally accompany a treatment cycle, acid reflux and toxins in your diets are also done away with.

2.) Reduced danger of side-effects
Side-effects have been a major con of medicine throughout the ages. Panchakarma works with holistic and non-chemical treatments like yoga, massages and oil treatment, and not with pills, drugs and surgery that can potentially turn invasive. As a result, harmful foreign substances do not enter and fester in your body. In the long run, this reduces the risk of a lot of chronic and acute diseases.

3.) Slows down fast ageing due to lifestyle-related causes of infertility.
Factors such as stress, emotional trauma, and addictions are root causes of female infertility. They also are direct triggers for accelerated aging, leading to further physical, mental and fiscal problems. Panchakarma helps to check these tendencies of your body by including diets and workouts that rid your bodies of toxins (AMAs) and rekindles your metabolic fire (AGNI).

Female infertility is a disappointing condition, and easy to treat with medications that further harm your body. A one-stop solution is the Ayurvedic process of Panchakarma, which provides umpteen benefits without the side effects.

Piles - How Panchkarma Therapy Can Help?

Piles - How Panchkarma Therapy Can Help?

Piles, a condition wherein the veins in the anal canal are swollen and obstruct the normal function of defecation, starts to bleed and cause pain prolapse or produces a discharge. There are two types in it

  1. Internal: Seen inside rectum; generally does not show any symptoms, but sometime there may be protrusion causing bleeding.
  2. External: Seen under the skin around the anus.


  1. Low fiber diet
  2. Obesity
  3. Pregnancy
  4. Inadequate fluid intake
  5. Straining on the toilet
  6. Hard stools

The symptoms are-

  1. Pain with skin irritation
  2. Bleeding with stool.
  3. Swelling around the anus

Complications are anaemia and strangulated hemorrhoids where the blood supply to internal hemorrhoids being cut n causes strangulations, causing extreme pain. Thus, when we do Panchakarma treatment the bowel system is strengthened and on consuming high fibre rich food, drinking more water, eating more fruits can prevent from the piles. Let us now see on the panchakarma treatment.

Ayurvedic Remedies for piles
External treatments

  1. Sesame seed paste: Sesame or “til” is a good treatment for bleeding piles when applied externally to the affected area.
  2. Muli or radish paste: Again, a fine paste made from this vegetable is useful in the case of painful piles which are not bleeding.
  3. Ayurvedic oils and creams: There are multiple ayurvedic oils and creams which can be very effective in curing or at least controlling piles. However, it is best to go to your nearest ayurvedic doctor for proper steps.

Treatment of piles by the Ayurvedic treatment of Panchakarma
Panchakarma is a formidable Ayurvedic treatment known for the purification of the body, mind and soul. It rejuvenates and detoxifies the body by removing accumulated toxins, thus improving metabolism by balancing the doshas.

It is usually a three-stage process.

  1. Purva (pre-operative)
  2. Pradhana (operative)
  3. Paschat (post operative)

Panchakarama covers a five step treatment out of which Virechan and Basti effectively helps in the treatment of piles.

1. Virechan- It removes pitta toxins such as herpes, zoster, jaundice, colitis and other infections. It clears bowel movement by cleaning the gall bladder and the liver.

Procedure: Concerned with the alimentary canal, it cures piles by a purgation process. Here the doshas are balanced in the form of waste excretion via faeces through the rectum. The heat produced from purgation medicines like Laxatives, Simple purgatives, Drastic purgatives, Hydragogues purgatives eradicates impurities from gall-bladder, liver and gastro-intestinal tract.

2. Basti- It treats vata dominated conditions and helps treat chronic diseases like constipation.

Procedure: It actively eliminates impurities through feces, urine and other excreta. Vata is located in the large intestine, which is why the medication directly affects ‘asthi dhatu’. Thus any medicines, when applied rectally, go into deeper bone tissues and cures vata disorders. It also gives relief from constipation.

If you are suffering from piles, consult a certified ayurvedic practitioner for treatment.

Panchakarma Treatment And Its Benefits!

Panchakarma Treatment And Its Benefits!

Panchakarma is the Sanskrit word for five actions. It is an Ayurvedic mode of treatment where a five-stage therapy is used to rid the body of toxins. The treatment takes advantage of the self-healing property of the body. It just helps the body get into the mode of detoxification and self-healing.

Ayurveda considers that the human body has its own healing power. However, our food habits and lifestyle choices make the process of healing fast or slow. Panchakarma is an effective way of rejuvenating the body and helping it to remove the toxins and cleanse the body. It makes use of five therapeutic measures to do this.

The five stages of Panchakarma are:

  1. Vamana
  2. Virechana
  3. Nasya
  4. Basti
  5. Swedana

All of these stages have a common goal and that is to restore the natural balance of body, mind and spirit, the basic tenet of healthy life.

Panchakarma Treatment

During Panchakarma, the body is massaged with oil. This massage triggers the detoxifying process and removes the harmful toxins from the circulatory system, digestive system and nervous system. This helps to restore the physiological equilibrium of the body. On further massaging, the fat deposit in the body also comes down. You can have a glowing skin and improved mental faculties. You can also get rid of anxiety, insomnia, etc.

Pulse Analysis
According to Ayurveda, diseases are result of an imbalance in the three doshas: Kapha dosha, Pitta dosha and Vata dosha.

Ayurvedic practitioners resort to pulse diagnosis to get an insight into the cause of this imbalance. With the help of Pulse information, they can keep track of key health parameters and devise the Panchakarma treatment accordingly.

Benefits of Panchakarma-

  1. Slows Down Aging: It slows down the process of aging and helps the body to detoxify itself by clearing the blocked channels for eliminating the toxins from the body. This naturally slows down the aging process.
  2. Improves Digestive Capacity: Yoga and meditation can help to improve digestion of food. It enhances digestive strength by abating the digestive juices and this improves the overall health
  3. Improves Sleep Pattern: Sleep disturbance is one of the significant causes of imbalance between the three doshas. Since the innate purpose of treatment in Ayurveda is restoring the normal balance between the doshas, Panchakarma treatment helps to improve the sleep cycle.

Panchakarma treatment is a combination of a variety of massages with a variety of herbs and oil, relaxation techniques, yoga and meditation. All these are geared towards restoring the natural sleep cycle and removing the toxins accumulated in the body.

So before going into details it will be good if you get an idea about the basics some of the Ayurveda basics concepts. Mainly the Tridosha Siddhanta. So you all have might heard about the tridosha vata pitta and kapha. So these three doshas along with its subdivisions carry out the entire functions of the human body like three pillars. So I will again explain about the vata, pitta and kapha a little more. Tridosha is basically based on the theory of panj mahauttar i.e. the theory about five elements principles of five elements i.e. air, space, fire, water and earth. So as far as this principles everything in universe is composed of these five elements, everything means we can see the presence of these five elements even (inaudible 1:30) so this is a basic concept of this Tridosha. So vatta dosha is air and space dominant energy factor which governs the principles of movements in our body. Pitta similarly is fire dominant energy factor which performs the functions of transformation in our body. There are many chemical biological transformation happening in our body which govern by pitta dosha. Similarly kapha dosha is an earth water dominant energy factor which governs the functions like lubrication, immunity, stability, growth etc. so this is our concept of tridosha. So these 3 dosha will carry on all the functions of our body like the 3 pillars. So if there is any imbalance so it will be ease by these 3 doshas and they overcome the disease.

So how ayurveda will manage to treat health problem? It is just balance the imbalances doshas. So how ayurveda will treat this imbalance? There are 2 types of treatments in Ayurveda one is Shamana chikitsa and the other is sodhana chikitsa. Shamana means pacifying the dosha the imbalance doshas within the body by giving some internal medicines with some external treatments. Secondly what makes Ayurveda unique comparing to other system of medicines? It s glimpsing treatment i.e. sodhana chikitsa i.e. the panchakarma treatment. So in panchakarma, there is 5 treatment moralities that we use. Vamana that is therapeutically induced control vomiting. And virechana i.e. cleansing of the bowel with administering some with the help of some preventive tips. Third one nasya administering some nasal medicines as nasal drops and fourth one i.e. medicated adenema treatment in which we administer kind of medicines through the angular tract and the last one is (inaudible 3:31) i.e. we use bloodletting to take out the blood from the body. So in each of the therapies have unique properties. So these are the panchakarma detoxifying procedure of Ayurveda which makes Ayurveda unique and if you want to know more about panchakarma therapy and how effective these therapies are and can be utilize for your health problems.

For gradually consuming such things from childhood to the adulthood, we are facing many problems like skin allergies, gaestrological discomfort, indigestion, constipation etc. When these problems regularly occur, then the major problem arises. So, the root cause is the depletion of metabolism. So, with the help of Panchakarma, we can cure any kind of ailments in our body like skin problems. FRom skin problems to different kinds of cancer including chronic ailments like joint problems and all, we can achieve very good results with the help of Panchakarma.

Vamanam therapy is used to detox the upper stomach and the cough dooshan in the body.

Vierechanam is the therapeutic Purgation, without any complication we can detox our body.

Nasyam is the nasal administration. It is very useful in migraine or ENT kind of any problem, then Nasyam is very good for that.

Rakta moksham are different kind of and so many kind of blood impurities can be detox by this therapy.

Last is the Vasti. Vasti is an overall chikitsa in Ayurveda. This is the major treatment in Ayurveda. From the joint pain to the paralysis, we can have very good results. There are different kinds of Vasti. FRom the detox to the nutrition purpose and different ailmensts we need to check in the body. Vasti is very usefull in such conditions.

So, this is the briefing about Panchakarma. This is very useful in balancing the body, mind and soul.
