  2. 2.  Ayurveda treatments have four basic forms of therapies, which are medicine or drug therapy, Panchakarma, Ayurveda diets or nutritional therapies and rejuvenation therapies. In these basic forms, ‘Panchakarma’ is the most important and effective therapy to rebuild the healthy lifestyle.
  3. 3.  Generally, Panchakarma therapies are done in a natural environment under the guidance of good and experienced Ayurveda practitioners. Panchakarma is developed in India and the word stands for five actions. It is a purifying or eliminating therapy to enhance the metabolism of the body and mind.
  4. 4.  Vamana Karma (use of emetics) – Vamana Karma is used for ‘Kapha’ disorders like Asthma, Cold, Bronchitis and sinus. It is a medicated therapy which removes Kapha toxins accumulated in the body and the respiratory tract.
  5. 5.  Virechana (use of laxatives) – Virechana Karma is used to treat pitta disorders like Hyperacidity, skin disorders, Digestive disorders, ulcer, and Constipation. www.ayurvedakerala.biz
  6. 6.  BastiKarma (medicated enema) – Promotes emission in the colon and thus ensures a good health. It is highly beneficial in cleansing and detoxifying the body.
  7. 7.  Nasya Karma (Nasal administration) – Inhalation of herbalized steam through the nose, which clears the nasal passages and lungs. It cures the diseases related to head, eyes, nose, etc. RaktaMokshana (blood letting) – In this treatment impure blood from the body is removed by using surgical instruments.
  8. 8.  The duration of Panchakarma therapy is typically three to seven days. The physical and mental conditions of a person are considered before prescribing this therapy. Panchakarma is a vital Ayurvedic treatment thus it requires proper guidance and administration and it should not be advised to do with information from a book or article.
  9. 9.  Sometimes not everyone requires all five forms of panchakarma. So it is recommended that this therapy should undertake with proper observation and supervision by a trained ayurvedic practitioner.www.ayurvedakerala.biz
