Panchakarma - a detox

Updated: May 12

Living a modern lifestyle also means living a stressful lifestyle and invariably this stress starts to impact our health negatively. The immune system is at an all time low, coughs, colds headaches come and go, feeling tired, lacking energy...the body is telling you something - detox!

There is alot and I mean alot of information and products out there to help you with the detox process. But of all the Ayurveda format, panchkarma is the most effective and its benefits exceed expectations.

So, what is panchkarma?

Panchakarma ("five actions") is a clensing and rejuvenation programme for the body. Treatments are based on snehana (oleation), use of oils or oily substances to assist in the loosening or melting of toxins at a cell level and swedana (fomentation) are heat treatments that cause the body to "sweat" out the melted toxins.

The benefits of panchkarma are:

  • Eliminate toxins and toxic conditions from your body and mind.

  • Restore your constitutional balance improving health and wellness.

  • Strengthen your immune system and become more resistant to illness.

  • Reverse the negative effects of stress on your body and mind thereby slowing the aging process.

  • Enhance your self-reliance, strength, energy, vitality and mental clarity.

  • Bring about deep relaxation and sense of well-being.

Modern lifestyle is stressful, according to the World Health Organisation, stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century, stress has been shown to be the cause of many chronic diseases....... panchakarma is a good starting point to start dealing with the stress in your life.

As more people learn and discover panchkarma, so there are more and more experts and you have to find the knowledgeable expert to give you the best panchkarma advice...so have a look at these people.
