In Ayurveda, Panchakarma is considered "non-surgical surgery" where cellular metabolic toxicity, developed from emotional and biological accumulations, is safely and specifically removed from the body layer by layer. Panchakarma (five cleansing actions) involves an intense process where a specific protocol is designed to meet your individual needs and supports your health from the inside out.
According to Ayurveda "Panchakarma adds 15 years to a persons life." Panchakarma begins with a consultation to determine where you are with health and in reference to where the toxins are. Daily treatments are implemented, along with herbs so that the body is ready to eliminate these toxins via certain routes of the gastrointestinal tract, then any one or more of the five cleansing-actions involved in panchakarma is provided and supervised.
The process of Panchakarma takes detoxification to a whole other level that other detoxification programs/protocols do not. Panchakarma is done on a case by case basis and not all who inquire are eligible. "It is strongly suggested to have PK done seasonally or at least once a year."
The whole process will consist of the preparatory diet designed for the protocol, and the oleative therapies (such as abhyanga-svedhana-shirodhara), known as Purva Karma, preparing the body for a deeper release of toxins. Then Pradhana Karma, which is actually what people understand Panchakarma to be, consists of the primary cleansing practices of Ayurveda that involve either specialized enemas, purging, and sinus treatments. Prashat Karma is the post diet and lifestyle recommendations to slowly build up the overall strength of digestion and body as a whole before returning to a regular diet.
