Ayurveda and Panchakarma

Ayurveda – the science of life! Unlike the common healthcare disciplines, Ayurveda believes in the direct relationship between Universe and the human body, mind, and spirit. Health and life are not separate but are intertwined. The environment around us is connected with our body, and a balance exists between both. Ayurveda represents the knowledge of life and is a balanced combination of the art of healthy living and modern science.

Ayurveda is a traditional health care system that uses comprehensive natural healing practices that work on ailments and enhance the overall wellness of the human mind and body. It doesn’t only focus on the physiological aspects of the diseases but also analyses the psychological elements. In this way, it aims to eliminate the root cause of health problems.

Ayurveda believes that one can achieve and maintain good health and have a healthy life by focusing on re-balancing emotions, practicing yoga and pranayam, controlling diet, and making lifestyle adjustments. Like other traditional medicine, Ayurveda too believes in the five elements of nature. They are – water, earth, fire, space, and air.

These elements combine in the body and govern the three life forces, or energy, called Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Anyone can enjoy a blissfully happy life with perfectly balanced doshas. But when they suffer imbalance, the person is propelled into a “vikruti” – an imbalanced state of mind and body. Stress, anxiety, dehydration, low energy, or excessive exertion are some of the forces that may disturb balance.

Ayurveda offers extensive therapies and remedies for the young, old, sick, healthy, and everyone in between. People for generations have trusted Ayurveda for its holistic approach. It’s also garnering western civilizations’ attention for being a traditional medical system focused on cure and prevention. Ayurvedic therapies enhance well-being, revitalize the body and soul, and restore lost body strength.

Ayurveda and  Panchakarma Treatment

Ayurveda emphasizes that health is not only about not having the disease but also the state of balance between Dathu, Dosha, Malakriya, and Agni. It includes Indriya (sense organs), Manas (mind), and Prasanna Atma (soul). Three doshas in our body- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha- represent our nervous system, the metabolic system, and the nutritive system, which maintains the body’s balance. A disturbance in the balance between these doshas can lead to disease manifestation. Ayurvedic treatment aims to revive the original condition of calmness between the doshas. There are specific recommended regimens and treatments to acquire the same, such as Rutucharya, Dinacharya, Rasayana–Vajikarana, Vega Adharana, and Panchakarma.

What is Panchakarma?

Panchakarma is derived from a mixture of two words: Pancha, meaning five, and Karma, meaning procedures. Panchakarma combines methods for lubricating and cleansing the body of all unwanted waste. It contains five types of therapies that are internal cleansing and nourishing processes. These therapies may benefit the management of musculoskeletal conditions and auto-immune psychiatric and neurological disorders.

However, the therapies are personalized based on age, medical condition, sex, constitution, dosha vitiated, etc.
