Panchakarma is the purification therapy used in Ayurveda as a means of prevention as well as working with a wide variety of health concerns. . Panchakarma translates to the five actions and refers to five procedures intended to both cleanse and restore supporting and bringing balance to the body, mind, and emotions.
Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest healing system in the world, originating in India some 3,000–5000 years ago. With the definition of it’s meaning being the “science of life”, Ayurveda teaches about the world we live in by understanding the elements from a subtle to gorss level and understanding the energetics of nature and how they play upon them in both our body, mind and energy. Panchakarma is based on central concepts of Ayurveda, which state that disease is caused by the build-up of toxic substances in the body and by imbalances in the body and mind. The main tools through its practice are the support of digestive health, the cleansing of toxins, and the balancing of emotions of the mind to create a sustainable life of balance through our intake within the Five Senses.
In Ayurvedic medicine Panchakarma is used to treat a wide array of imbalances, including ones that are chronic, metabolic or stress-related in origin. Panchakarma has been used to support treatment of allergies, asthma , arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome , colitis, high cholesterol, depression , diabetes, digestive disorders, heart disease, hypertension , immune problems, infections , inflammation, insomnia , nervous disorders, obesity , skin problems, and ulcers.
