Ayurveda has given the world a lot of things. These things have changed the way humans live and they have made the transition from a world riddled with diseases to the world perfectly healthy feasible. The importance of Ayurveda is immense and it is the undoubtedly the leading practice when it comes to alternate forms of medicine. The incredible potency of Ayurveda can be attributed to its multifaceted nature as well as to its branches that have facilitated the use of medicines according to the maladies present thus eradicating the root of any disease from the body entirely.
Arguably the most renowned of these branches is Panchkarma techniques of Ayurveda. The name Panchkarma literally means "Five Actions" which is apt given the fact that this technique depends on five different elemental actions that control the body namely Vomiting, Purgation, Niruham, Anuvaasan, and Nasyam. In a way, this Panchkarma healing technique is the pillar upon which a majority of Ayurvedic techniques stand. All of the styles and methods that Ayurveda has, they all have been inspired or derived somehow from these elemental actions.
Panchkarma works best with the use of medicated oils that are used to purge the human body of any impurities that it might be harbouring inadvertently. Due to its enormous potency and instantaneous effects that last longer, this method has been deemed incredibly effective in fighting off against afflictions. Panchkarma is the true embodiment of Ayurvedic values and it lives up to its reputation.
