Panchakarma

‘Pancha’ means five and ‘karma’ means treatment

Ayurveda is the oldest surviving holistic medical system in the world.

It offers a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life including Panchakarma (“Pancha” means five and “karma” means treatment) is done to detoxify the body; its origin is in the Vedas which are known to be more than 5000 years old.

Ayurveda describes the Vedic wisdom of how to live a healthy and peaceful life. Together with Yoga, it gives a detailed blueprint for a fulfilled enlightened life. Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements:

Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Ether. These elements are represented in humans by three ‘Doshas’, or Energies:

Three Doshas

Vata, Pitta, and Kapha

When any of the Doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting the right balance of the three Doshas (Tridoshas). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce the excess Dosha.
