Procedure of Panchkarma

PANCHKARMA

Panchkarma is a basically a cleansing process that not only treat the disease from root cause but also improves longevity and rejuvenation. It has two poorav karma like Snehan (oilification) and Swedan (fomentation).

FIVE PROCEDURE OF PANCHKARMA

Snehan

Snehan

External Oilification :In this medicated oils are vigorously massaged into the body. Sesame oil is the primarily vegetable oil used for external application. Internal Oilification : In this medicated oil are ingested. Herbalized ghee (clarified butter) is the main substance used for internal Oilification.

2) Swedan :

swedan

swedan

In swedan body is made to undergo sudation or sweating by exposure to steam. With herbs added steam the body is made to perspire to loosen and excrete the toxins. Swedan is done locally or full body. a). Forced vomiting (Vaman) :

Vomiting (Vaman) is intended to the removal of “Kapha dosha“. It is not to be adopted for ‘Kapha’s only but necessarily in case of ‘kapha’s” conjunction with one or both ‘Doshas’s. Vaman is essential for in the case of food poisoning or other type of poisoning. Vaman employs certain emetic drugs that induce a severe spell of vomiting to clean the upper gut. Bronchial astma is prevented by periodically inducing ‘Vaman’.

b). Purging (Virechan) :

Purging is a purifactory treatment as important as emisis or vomiting. ‘Virachan’ concentrates on the lower part of the gut and uses purgatives to clean the bowel. This procedure helps get rid of all three Doshas, though Pitta and Kapha benefit the most. To cure piles, boils, discolouration of face, jaundice, chronic fever, spleen enlargement cataract, intenstinal disorders, ailments of the womb, arthritis, haemothermia, constipation, diabetes, skin diseases, tumors, asthma cough, ailments in the head and many other diseases in the Ayurvedic way, purging is essential.

c). Medical enema (Vasti) :

The classical Text ‘Ashtanga Hridaya’ says, “A purge properly carried out leads to clarity of intellect, power to the organs, elemental stability and glow to digestive fire and it delays aging”. Medical enema ‘Vasti’ predominates in the five course of treatment (Panchakrama). This is prescribed for ‘Vata’ dominated patients and helps to overcome all diseases, revives vital force, and rejuvanates body. The rectal lining is very permeable and the drug reaches the circulation directly without passing through liver. Ayurveda offers ‘Vasti’ as a therapy for several indications. These are digestive, evacuative, rejuvanative and health promotive ‘Vastis’. In general ‘Vastis’ tackle ‘Vata dosha’ the best way. The fluid for ‘Vasti’ is either medicinal decoction or herbal oil to suit the ailment. ‘Vasthi’ for the head gives extra ordinary relief for all ailments connected with ‘Vata’ in the head, ear ache, humming in the year, deafness, numbness of the head and all ailments based on the cranical nerves. This procedure is usually done for 7 days.

d). Nasal administration of substances (Nasya) :

NasyaNasya’ (Nasal administration of substances) is essential for more or less all the ailments above the neck. This is effective for many diseases like facial paralysis. ‘Nasya’ is of three types, purgative, nourishing and palliative. For each ailment a substance that gives desirable result is selected. By this procedure shoulders, neck and face will become dense and firm, the skin soft. All organs become firm and hair will not gray. e). Shirodhara: Shirodhara Shir means Head, and Dhara means to pour. That means to pour something on head especially on the third eye. It may be anything liquid as described in our old Ayurvedic texts. So Shirodhara means a purifying and detoxification technique used to manage physical and mental exertion and fatigue. Shirodhara is a unique form of ancient therapy of pouring oil on the forehead from a specific height and for a specific period continuously and rythmatically allowing the oil to run through the scalp and into the hair.

INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION TO PANCHKARMA

INTRODUCTION TO PANCHKARMA

INTRODUCTION TO PANCHKARMA

The pre-procedures are called “Poorva Krama” and consists of digestion (Pachana), oleation (Senehan), fomentation (Swedan). Basic objective of “Panchkarma” (Five internal detoxification procedures) is to remove the excessive accumulated toxins, which causes the vitiation of “Dosha” (fault). If any “dosha” is imbalanced, either due to environment or dietary factors it is often difficult to be normalized with diet and drugs alone. Actual “Panchakrama” procedures are always preceded and succeeded with specialized procedures. If used as therapeutic measure they can be done at any time of the year, i.e., at the time the disease occurs. If one uses it as a preventive measure, it should be used at the appropriate time for each “Dosha”
