In Ayurveda, health is a state of spiritual and physical attainment. It is a medical, metaphysical healing life science – the mother of all healing arts. The practice of Ayurveda is designed to promote human happiness, health and creative growth. It is the science of daily living and this system of knowledge evolved from the ancient sages’ practical, philosophical and religious illumination which was rooted in their understanding of the creation. Ayurveda helps the healthy person to maintain health and the diseased person to regain health. ‘Ayur’ means ‘Life’ and ‘Veda’ means ‘Science’. Thus Ayurveda is the ‘Science of Life’.

Panchakarma is a treatment to completely rid the body of the harmful effect and manifestation of the presence of toxins.  Prior to panchakarma treatment external oileation is administered by rubbing oil on the skin.(i.e. simply a Massage). Panchakarma is set of five procedures:

  • nasya therapy(nasal cleansing)
  • vamana karma(vomiting)
  • virechana karma(purgation)
  • vasthi karma(enema therapy)
  • Rakthamokshana (blood letting)
