The most exploitable branch of Ayurveda is Panchakarma also called as Shodana therapy. The main goal of Ayurveda medication is to cleanse the body of undigested food called ama, which can cause severe ailments. The cleansing process by the distinctive basic activities that control the body namely Vamana (Vomiting), Virechana (Purgation), Nasya, snehavasthi and Kashayavasthi) is called Panchakarma. These actions are performed in three steps: Poorva karma, pradhana karma and paschat karma.

I. Purva karma

Purva karma - preparatory procedures that help the body to discard the toxins present in the stomach and in the tissues. It facilitates the toxins to move to the alimentary canal. This process includes amapacha (balancing digestive fire by medicines, fasting), Snehana (internal oleation by medicated ghee or oils and external oleation by massage) and swedana (sudation by steam bath, pizhichil, dhara etc), dhara, kizhi, avagaha, upanaha, etc

II. Pradhan karma

- main treatment which is designed as per the needs of individual these are Vamana, Virechana, Nasyam, Snehavasthi and Kashayavasthi

Vamana - inducing vomiting specially for kapha related illnesses like asthma, coughs, chronic colds, psoriasis, acne, arthritis, diabetes and other kapha disorders. This is a painless, drug-induced emetic process. (We prescribe vamana treatment, if necessary, as per the condition of the patient)

Virechana - inducing purgation especially for elimination of Pita related toxins from the body. Here, drugs that stimulate bowel movements are induced for the expulsion of excess Pitha.

Nasya - nasal cleansing by the application of medical oils or powders. The nostrils are considered the Doorway to the Brain and nasal application of oils is helpful in conditions like allergic sinusitis, migraines and epilepsy. If the Nasya therapy has been carried out effectively, Kapha related toxins from the paranasal sinuses are eliminated and the region nourished. Due to this, the patient feels great relief in the head and clarity of the sense organs. Breathing becomes completely unobstructed which gives sound sleep at night. Olfactory improvement is also felt. Nasya is excellent for chronic sinusitis, headaches, throat diseases, chronic colds, chest congestion, epilepsy, catarrh, migraine, voice constraint, eye diseases and cervical spondylitis.

Vasthi- medicated enema is particularly good for alleviating excess Vatha. The effects of vasthi are directly felt in the colon, the prime site of the vatha. With the application of a series of purifying and nourishing vasthis, the morbid doshas and other toxins trapped for long in the tissues are eliminated. This restores the equilibrium of the dosha. Vasthi is good for spleen disorders, colic, calculus, kidney stones and many other diseases due to a vatha disorder. It helps in chronic constipation, low back pain, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, sciatica, various neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, dystrophy and atrophy of nerves and muscles.

a)Sneha vasthi - enema using medicated oil which remains in the colon and rectum for a short period of time to absorb the toxins and eliminate them out of the body.

b) Nirooha vasthi- enema using a special combination of herbal decoctions, paste, powders and oils. It has an effect on the nervous system to help eliminate the imbalances in vatha.

III.Paschat karma

Paschat karma - post treatment care includes the diet regimen and the life styles to observe for a better result of the treatments. Massage, Diet & Rest, medicated warm water bath, Herbal Paste application, Medicated smoke, Medicated mouth wash are advised in the step.

Patients are thoroughly diagnosed and cared by our qualified and skilful Ayurveda practitioner before and during the treatment.
