Pancha Karma in Ayurvedic medicine means ' Five Therapies', which may be used individually or in varying sequences and modifications as per the medical requirements of each patient. These five Cleansing Therapies have been used for thousands of years to cleanse and rejuvenate the body and all of its systems at the deepest level, thus fighting disease, facilitating longevity. These extraordinary therapies increase the andorphin level which releases the neuro muscular tension.
The Five Therapies, or procedures, of Pancha Karma are such as:
Vamana: Therapeutic Vomiting
Virecana: Purgation Therapy
Basti: Enema Therapy
Anuvasana Basti: Lubricating/
Nasya: Nasal Therapy
While these are the main procedures which give Pancha Karma its name, each of these is accompanied by numerous preparatory and concluding therapies such as Abhyanga (Oil Massage), Svedana (Steam Therapies), Pinda Sveda (Herbal Poultices) and many more.
Prior to any major cleansing therapy such as Vamana or Virecana, the body is prepared through the observance of a very specified diet determined individual to individual, internal herbal protocols, medicated oil massage and various forms of steam baths. The combination of all these therapies, rejuvenates the digestive system, muscular and skeletal system.
After cleansing therapies (or as the main treatment for elderly people, young people and those who have debilitating diseases), satiating and tonifying therapies are employed to rejuvenate the body and optimize all of its physiological systems. These treatments may include external and internal oleation therapies utilized specially medicated oil, rejuvenating 'Rasayana' herbal compounds (tonic) and specific tonifying and relaxing treatments for the sense organs.
It is important to note that the depth and benefits of both the cleansing and rejuvenating and therapeutic aspects of Pancha Karma procedures are greatly contingent upon the time that can be given to the overall program. Ayurveda can not legally claim to 'treat' or 'cure' any diseases or pathologies in the United States. However, Ayurveda and Pancha Karma therapies can offer qualitative improvement and support the overall health and life style.
