If you are interested in an Ayurvedic program such as Panchakarma, the surroundings will be a vital factor to your experience of Ayurveda. The home of Ayurveda will forever be India. The exotic environment and history completely compliments Ayurveda and its practices.

SpaDreams believes the surroundings complement the program itself, and being in Ayurveda’s natural beautiful home environment you would benefit greatly. Indeed, there are many forms of Ayurveda treatments and practices, the most comprehensive being Panchakarma.

Panchakarma Program Theory + Practice

FACT: Ayurveda is based on the ancient wisdom principle of a good life. Remedies such as herbs, spices, leaves, and oils, which are all provided by nature are intended to promote and help overall well-being.

Ayurveda is an ancient field of knowledge concerning a long, healthy life. Ayurveda uses natural remedies and treatments to create new energy, regenerate, fully relax and align the body, mind and soul to a more balanced state. Ayurveda promotes good health and well-being through living in harmony with nature.

Your typical day consists of many factors including a toxic and stressful world that eventually weakens our systems as a whole causing more stress both physically and mentally. Our body systems become more prone to symptoms that may develop and evolve into more serious specific diseases. Enter Panchakarma.

Panchakarma ideally helps with circulation, eye and cutaneous conditions, diabetes, respiratory difficulties, nerves and muscular difficulties. It can also help with stress, sleep loss, digestion and high blood pressure.  Panchakarma can help by reversing these negative effects and in contrast help prevent them. As mentioned previously, it will help your natural state of health by cleansing the body of negative toxins.

The Panchakarma process carried out by professionals seems a quite simple application, however it needs to be performed correctly as its effects can be very powerful and effective. With it being a holistic program it will bring life-enhancement to your motivation, energy levels and vitality. However, Panchakarma is not suitable for everyone as in some cases it can and will have a very negative effect. Indications for that would be acute inflammation, malignant growths and tuberculosis.

To finalize the Panchakarma theory, there are 5 therapeutic treatments that are involved: Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamoskshana. These 5 aspects are meant to balance the Doshas (energies seen within the body) and put the body back into its natural state of balance.
