Panchakarma treatment

Panchakarma treatment in Kerala is an important treatment of all Ayurvedic practices.

Cleaning and renewal process is one of the initial learnings in Ayurveda. Panchakarma is the detoxification procedure that does effective cleaning from inside by eliminating the accumulated toxins. In Panchakarma, the body, mind, and senses are rejuvenated and there is sustainable improvement through lifestyle changes. Panchakarma not only cures bodily disorders, but also eliminates stress, leading to complete detoxification.

If Panchakarma therapy is performed regularly, toxins would not accumulate at high levels, and imbalances can be detected early on.

The Process of Panchakarma

Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word, which means, 'five processes'. A qualified Ayurvedic physician devises a customized treatment and duration based on your dosha imbalances, body constitution, age, immunity, metabolism, digestive strength etc.

The Panchakarma treatment includes three phases;

Poorva Karma - This step is very crucial to eradicate the imbalances in your body. Activities that trigger the release of toxins are included in this step. It starts with Snehana or Oleation in which herbal oils are applied to your body. Oil and ghee when ingested provide internal lubrication.

After oiling and massages, tissues become tender. Swedana or fomentation therapy is performed to make them more supple. Both these therapies help in washing out the toxins easily..

Pradhana Karma (Primary Procedures) - In this main phase, five therapies are performed.

Nasyam - Nasal passages, forehead and temples are cleansed and detoxified by instilling herbal oils or herbal remedies through the nostrils. The cerebral area is relaxed.

Vamana - This is a process of controlled vomiting or purging, called medicated emesis in which herbal medicines are given. It removes the toxins accumulated in the upper body parts like the diaphragm and respiratory tract.

Virechanam - Through medically induced purgation, the lower part of the gut is cleansed from excessive toxic and metabolic waste(pitta) using natural laxatives. The toxins are purged out from our bowels.

Vasthi - Warm Ayurvedic herbal oils or decoctions made with natural ingredients like ghee, milk etc are administered to induce enema, for the elimination of toxins accumulated in the intestines and colon. Constipation, piles, and arthritis are treated by this method.

Rakta mokshana - Toxic blood is the major reason for several ailments. Blood is detoxified effectively by this treatment. Impure blood is removed from the bloodstream by the process of bloodletting. Psoriasis, pigmentation, dermatitis etc can be treated by this method.

Pashchath Karma (Post therapy activities) - This is the renewal phase, where emphasis is on the maintenance of good health. This is done through activities like Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and consumption of dosha-specific diet and rasayanas.


Panchakarma treatment is decided for an individual after thorough physical examination and pulse diagnosis. Therefore, there is no universal package for everyone. It may take a minimum of seven days and may last as long as 21 days.
