AYURVEDA DETOX & PANCHAKARMA
AYURVEDA DETOX STARTS AT 14 DAYS .
THE PANCHAKARMA GHEE DETOX REQUIRES A MINIMUM OF 21 DAYS .
Goals : Detox and cleanse accumulated toxins from the body using classical and traditional Ayurveda procedures. is programme always begins with the Purvakarmas, or the preparatory therapy where the body is prepared for removal of toxins through two methods. Firstly by ‘Snehanam’, where the body is oleated internally by ingesting medicated ghee for the number of nights prescribed by the Vaidya and externally by ‘Swedanam’ where the body is made to undergo therapeutic sweating. Depending on the medical condition and the Doshas, the Vaidya will further determine the course of cleansing processes for each individual.
SwaSwara’s Ayurveda Detox and Panchakarma programme starts from 14 days onwards. Aer a detailed consultation with our Ayurveda doctor and prior to starting the therapeutic external body treatments, this intense, holistic programme begins with the Ayurvedic detox procedure of ingesting medicated ghee for a few nights (Snehapana), followed by a day of purging (Virechana) to cleanse and eliminate the accumulated toxins out of the body.
During this programme each individual is put on a personalised, Dosha-specific diet which will be followed strictly as prescribed by the doctor. On the Ayurveda doctor’s advice, up to two treatments will be oered on a daily basis, supplemented by light yoga and meditation sessions. During their stay, guests are encouraged to use the in-house art & pottery studio and take part in the interactive cooking sessions too to learn Ayurvedic cooking. Due to the intense and curative nature of this programme, all physical and outdoor activities including yoga will be subject to the Ayurveda doctor’s advice & approval only.
‘Panchakarma’ which literally means five-fold method, is essentially about intense purification of the body and requires a minimum stay of 21 days. e Panchakarma is the intensive cleansing treatment which follows the early texts of Ayurveda like Charaka Samhita. The five actions of Panchakarma according to Charaka Samhitha are Vamana (induced vomiting), Virechana (purgation), Kashaya Vasti and Sneha Vasti (two kinds of medicated enemas) and Nasya (nasal medication). It is always preceded by the preparatory process called Purvakarma or Snehapana & Virechana.
The third and final stage of treatment is ‘Samana’ or ‘Paschatkarma’ where the patient undergoes corrective measures through internal medicines, therapeutic body treatments, supplemented by an appropriate Dosha-specific diet and gentle healing activities for the body & mind. On completion of this course of treatment, the imbalances of the Doshas, which lead to diseases in the body, get stabilised and are brought to equilibrium.
