Panchakarma is a detoxification process and includes five karma or processes towards removal of accumulated toxins. These five procedures include the sneha vasti (enema with medicated oils), kashaya vasti (enema with decoctions), nasya (medication through the nose), vamana (cleansing through vomiting) and virechana (cleansing of bowels).

While panchakarma corrects all types of diseases by balancing the 3 doshas in the body, it is most helpful in musculoskeletal disorders, neurological, sinus, respiratory and gynecological problems.

Ayurveda derives medicines from the nature, various medicinal herbs, animal products and minerals are used to prepare drugs. For example amla (Indian gooseberry), neem (margosa), chandan (sandalwood), and metals like gold, silver, iron etc.

Panchakarma is used to treat those diseases, which are chronic, metabolic, degenerative, non-infectious or stress-related in origin. Panchakarma has been used to treat allergies, asthma, arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, high cholesterol, depression, diabetes, digestive disorders, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, chronic inflammation, insomnia, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, chronic ulcers etc.

However, Panchakarma is limited in treating traumatic injuries, infections and conditions which requires immediate surgery or invasive procedures.

Shirodhara purifies the mind, alleviates anxiety, reduces headaches, and expands awareness. Shirodhara can be administered  on its own or as part of a detoxification regime.
