Elaborated methods of purification are used to release stress, which prepares the body tissues to accept the maximum benefits of food, nutrition and exercise. Panchkarma treatment is a three stage process—purva (pre-operative), pradhana (operative) and paschat (post-operative) measures. Ayurveda advises to practice Purvakarma because of the deep rooted imbalances in the body, which needs to be flushed out in the right way by Purvakarma and then by Panchakarma. To undergo a purification therapy it is highly important for the body to be prepared for the rigorous process to encourage the body to let go of the toxins. Treatments like Abhyangam, Shirodhara and Elakizhi are included to soften the tissues where the oil is applied to the entire body with a particular type of massage which helps the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract. Thereafter, therapies like Vamana, Virechana, Vasti, Nasya, Raktamoksha are used as per the body constitution (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) to complete the detoxifying process.
Vaman, therapeutic vomiting or emesis therapy, solves the purpose of eliminating Kapha toxins from the body and the respiratory tract for people suffering from Kapha imbalance. The therapy helps in mobilization of the otherwise static toxins for their elimination. Virechana, a purgation therapy, is helpful in expulsion of toxins stuck in the liver and gallbladder and aids complete cleansing of gastro-intestinal tract while Vasti (Enema), rejuvenating treatment, aids in eradication of toxins from all the doshas— Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Medicated oil or ghee and herbal decoction is given as enema to clean the colon and enhance the muscle tone. Nasya can be defined as a process where the medicated oil is administered through the nose to remove Kapha toxins from the head and neck region. Rakta Mokshana (Bloodletting), Rakta is removed to eliminate the Dosha and thus establishing normalcy.
The treatment is carried out after the close examination by the doctors at Kairali, who will provide you with the diet chart to be strictly adhered to.
