There are two major treatment processes in Ayurveda— The Science of Life. One, which is basically a bio-cleansing regimen, intended to eliminate the toxic elements and the causative factors of the diseases from the patient’s body. In simple term, this is known as detoxification. Ayurveda describes this as a Samshodhana Chikitsa and it is considered superior to the second as the chances for recurrences of the disease becomes remote. Second is a pacifying therapy Samshamana Chikitsa, in which medicine is prescribed by doctors to subsidize, to neutralize and pacify the toxic elements (doshas) inside the body.
