As more and more people are affected by stress, either environmental, mental, or physical stress, there are more complaints of diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer. All these diseases are complex disorders that accumulate over a lifetime.
The most deeply seated toxins that cause disease are heavy and sticky and they easily lodge into the tissue layers. Panchakarma eliminates these toxins from the body, allowing the permanent healing of tissues, channels, digestion, and mental functions.
Panchakarma is a combination of five therapeutic actions and they are classified as follows: Vaman, Virechana, Nasya, Sneha Vasti, and Kashaya Vasti.
