Human body is wonderful in its natural healing capability. It continuously keeps rejuvenating itself. But whenever the Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are severely imbalanced and the toxic substances are formed in large amounts, the natural capability of the body to heal itself gets blocked. To correct this situation, Ayurveda offers us the gift of “Panchkarma”, the science of detoxification and rejuvenation.
Panchkarma can be divided into two words: “Pancha” meaning five and “Karma” meaning actions. Hence, when put together the phrase means five actions or steps towards detoxification and rejuvenation. During this process of cleansing, various systems are first freed of all toxins, excess Doshas are eliminated and the body is rejuvenated.
