Panchakarma Therapies

Panchakarma Therapies

The term ‘Panchakarma Therapies’ is derived from the two words “Pancha” (five) and “Karma” (actions). Literally in ayurveda it means five detox procedures or actions. All of these make sure that the pathogens and toxins are eliminated from the body using the panchakarma therapies or treatments that are focussed on preventive, curative and rejuvenation actions.

The panchakarma treatment in Bangalore which is provided at the Rajeshwari Ayurdhama is fundamentally different for each individual, because the treatments vary according to individual constitution i.e., depending on the doshas, age, disease, season, digestive strength, immune system, and other factors.

Stages of Panchakarma

An Ayurvedic treatment basically consists of two parts namely, ‘Samshodhana Chikitsa’ which is the bio-cleansing therapy and ‘Samshaman Chikitsa’ which means the pacifying therapy. Panchakarma treatment in Bangalore falls under the Samshodhana Chikitsa because it is a dynamic procedure to help cleanse the body from the inside out called the “Ama”. 

The toxins are accumulated due to improper diet, lifestyle and lack of spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If we are overburdened with the ‘Ama’ or toxic substances, they will begin to accumulate with a detrimental impact on your health and overall well-being. That is why, cleansing treatment is provided by the best ayurvedic doctor in Bangalore. 

There are three phases or stages of panchakarma that  include: Poorva karma, padhan karma and pachat karma.
