Aside from the plethora of natural beauty and bounty of beaches, Kerala is also home to authentic ayurvedic therapies. With changes in lifestyles, diet, stress and increasing pollution, it becomes essential to detox once in a while. If the toxins are left in the body, they lead to ill health, pains and a sallow-looking skin. Ayurveda turns around this degenerative process and not only rejuvenates the body, but also adds longevity to your life.
Panchakarma is considered to be the best branch of ayurveda for rejuvenation and detoxification. Its numerous benefits include speeding up metabolism, reducing weight, getting rid of toxins, boosting immunity and relieving stress and rejuvenating tissues. This form of treatment is offered in two ways – the first step is Oleation and the second is Fomentation.
During oleation, oil or ghee infused with organically grown medicinal herbs is massaged externally on the skin and taken internally too, to loosen up toxins and impurities stuck within the cells of the body. The second step is fomentation in special saunas which, is used to generate sweating. The cells and tissues that becomes tender during the oleation process now become even more flexible and aid in flushing toxins out of the body. This results in purging, discharging of toxins and re-establishing the body’s natural healing ability.
Before embarking on Panchakarma therapy, the patient will first be examined by an ayurvedic physician to determine the right type of therapy required. In some cases, aside from the Panchakarma therapy, the patient may also need to go on a special ayurvedic diet supplemented with specific medicinal plants to rejuvenate the liver and digestive system. This is especially useful where the body is unable to pass out saturated fats and cholesterol, leading to blocked arteries and consequent cardiac emergencies.
Panchakarma therapy affects individuals in many ways at the physical, mental and emotional levels. The therapy can take anything from 7 to 21 days depending upon the physician’s opinion. This form of therapy is unique as it includes preventive, curative and promotive actions to keep the body healthy.
