Procedure of Panchakarma
There are a two procedures that needs to be taken care of before Panchakarma therapy.

  • Oleation: It is the process where you apply oil to your body. Applying oils of various ingredients and formulas to your body helps to carry all the medicinal properties throughout your body.
  • Fomentation: Oleation makes the toxins loosen up in your body and fomentation sweats it out. So, it is a cleansing process.

The five types of Panchakarma therapies that can be helpful are:
1. Vamana: This is the vomiting process. After the therapy and medication, you will vomit out all the toxins present in your body.
2. Virechana: This is the excretion process. This clears the toxins in your bowels.
