Five Bio-Detoxification Purificator Therapy
The five bio-detoxification Purification therapies are Vamana (Emetic therapy), Virechana (Purgation therapy), Asthapana Basti (Decotion Enema Therapy), Anuvasana (Oily enema therapy) and Nasya (Errhine therapy).
Prior to performing the bio-detoxification Pacificator therapy is important to make body biologically ready to expel the accumulated morbid toxins and also to give some strength so that the main major process like emesis or purification can be done without any discomfort or complication to patient and to achieve best results. This process is called as Purva Karma (Preparatory measures). Three measures are taken in this proces: Snehana (Oleation Therapy), Swedana (Sudation Therapy) and “Agni Vardhaka Aushadhi Sevana” (Digestive fire enhancing parameters).
After detailed study of the Panchakarma process and understanding the requirement of people, Dr. Tanmay Goswami reclassified the Panchakarma treatment in five categories:
- Preventive Pancha Karma
- Pampering Pancha Karma
- Rejuvenating Pancha Karma
- Remedial Pancha Karma
- Emergency Pancha Karma
Preventive Pancha Karma
Ayurveda’s first aim is prevention of disease and to maintain the health in a healthy person. Pancha karma also helps significantly in prevention of disease and in providing high energy and strength. For instance, if emesis therapy is performed just before beginning of spring season, then the occurance of kaphaja disorders like mucous born diseases can be controlled well.
Another major disease is Obesity. A mild purgation for many days followed with alkline based Enema therapies is performed to check fat growth in improper body parts. Just this process can check fatal risk factors such as cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes.
Pampering Pancha Karma
Usually, Pampering Panchakarma is either required for children or to psychologically depressed patients. According to W.H.O., the biggest danger to the world is not by Cancer or AIDS, it is from Depressive Mood Disorder. Surprisingly, there are no cures to this diseases. Ayurveda looked at this with great interest and is the only science that has provided solution to Depressive Mood Disorder. Dr. Tanmay Goswami found that by purifying the body and giving a best relaxing therapies by using various tranquilizing oils and Nasya (Errhine Therapy), the mind can be relaxed. Nasal passage (Nasa hi Shiraso Dwaram) is gateway to brain, and herbs administered through nostrils reaches and gets absorbed by the brain and heart faster. Thus the effect of herbs reach to each and every cell of the human body faster. By using various herbal techniques such as Shiro Pichu, Shiro dhara, Shiro Basti, Virechana and Mind strengthen Bastis, patients can be pampered and relaxed mentally.
Rejuvenating Pancha Karma
The only Medical science in the world that has given an opportunity to man kind to live life without aging. Ancient Indian seers lived in nature-culture of Himalayan valley. After meditating on the technique of how to check old age, they developed a science under ayurveda, the Rejuvenation.
The basic process is to clean the body and administer the body with herbs that can check oxidation and replace old fragile cells to new fresh strengthen cells. Oxidation and decay of body cells is very common and obvious due to environmental stress and in present life style. The degeneration and destruction of body cells has become faster due to modern living style therefore, this branch of ayurveda has come up as a big boon to the human society.
One of the main aim of ayurveda is to promote health. Rasayana is a branch of ayurveda which exclusively deals with promotion of health. Rasayana is a health promoting measure. To administer such medicines it is important to purify the body by Pancha karma. Rasayana techniques help to:

It also helps to strenghten mental balance, enhance memory power, voice and sensory. This is the best way to remove chronic fatigue, allergy, general weakness, flabby muscles. It also helps in digestion and metabolism
Remedial Pancha Karma
|Panch karma is primarily a treatment of degenerative and chronic disorders caused by excessive vitiation of doshas (the energies in the body) due to accumulation of toxins in the body. This is a complete treatment as it eliminates all excessive vitiated substances from the body and sets the balance in the bodily energies. By this technique all toxins are removed from the body, and therefore, minimizes the reoccurrences of the diseases. This is the way to eradicate the disorder from its root. |
When the body is purified by removal of the excessive toxins, the immune system of the body gets relaxed too. The this is also the best reply for Autoimmune disorders. According to Ayurveda the Vamana ( Emetic therapy ) is not just a gastric levage, it works on system level of the body.
