The Detoxification procedure in Ayurveda is known as PANCHAKARMA. It has two stages;
Poorva karma is of two types. The first stage is Snehana – the Oleation therapy where medicated ghee is administered internally for a period of 3-7 days depending on the patient’s condition. This is followed by external application of therapeutic oils all over the body by massage. By these procedures toxins that are deeply situated in the tissues gets displaced.
Sudation is the second stage where the body is heated by different methods by which the displaced toxins move through different channels and reaches the alimentary canal. The Detox proper is followed after that and the toxins are removed from body through various outlets.
Panchakarma is the five fold therapeutic cleansing process of eliminating the metabolic wastes accumulated due to our daily wear and tear, both physical and mental. The elimination process is done naturally by preparing the body itself to do the same. The person undergoing these treatments should follow strict dietary and activity regime. After taking specially prepared medicines for 5-7 days followed by sudation for 1-3 days, the Panchakarma is performed. These cleansing techniques are proved to have anti-oxidant properties.
