About Ayurveda

What is Panchakarma

Ayurveda treatments consist of five natural methods or “Panchakarma” as follows

1. Nasya
2. Vaman
3. Virechana
4. Vasthi and
5. Raktha Moksha

The treatment methods aim to eliminate all the toxic elements from the body and mind. This medical system emphasizes the holistic approach where the whole person body, mind and soul should be considered and not just the affected part.

Ayurveda is based on “Panchabhutha” and “Tridosha” theories. This unique living system considers that a human being is a balanced composition of body, mind and soul. Life styles which are based on the true principles of Ayurveda will resist diseases, arrest premature ageing and retain youthfulness for a long time.

The Uniqueness in Ayurveda Treatment

Ayurvedic treatment is unique in its approach to health and disease. Instead of suppressing the main symptoms, the root cause is eliminated and thus gives permanent relief. The treatment is mainly carried out using powders, tablets, decoctions, medicated oils etc. prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals, massages and enemas etc.
