Let’s first start with understanding what’s the Detoxification process in Ayurveda.

The principle objectives of Ayurveda include maintenance and promotion of health, prevention of disease and cure of sickness. Principally it comprises of 2 parts – cleansing therapy and pacifying therapy. When the toxins of the body causing diseases are in lesser quantity, pacifying medicines are given both internally and externally. Cleansing therapy which include the PANCHAKARMAS OF AYURVEDA are used when the toxins are in greater quantity, thus draining them out from the body through the natural orifices.Basically, detoxification means cleansing the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin during a body detox.

The second most important thing is to understand HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED TO DO A DETOXIFY BODY CLEANSE ?

Let me summarise few symptoms for you – Unexplained fatigue,Sluggish elimination,Irritated skin, Allergies,Low-grade infection,Puffy eyes or bags under the eyes, Bloating, Menstrual problems , Mental confusion , weight gain ,skin problems etc are some of the signs that shows that your body is asking for help.

Head Massage : Massaging your head with oil has many benefits and for many Ayurveda treatment it is done as a pre-requisite. 


Panchakarma well known as detoxification and rejuvenation therapy, includes specially designed five procedures of internal purification and detoxification of the body through the nearest possible route. Such purification allows the biological system to return to homeostasis and to rejuvenate rapidly and also facilitates the desired pharmaco-therapeutic effects of medicines administered thereafter.

But today, Panchakarma expounded in Ayurveda is perhaps the most misunderstood of all Ayurveda practices. Due to ignorance, it is often perceived as just another system of oil massage.

In today’s busy world, more and more people are becoming victims of the adverse effects of stress and anxiety, which is leading to diseases like gastro-intestinal disorders, lack of sleep, allergies, heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue etc. These diseases caused mainly due to deep seated metabolic toxins. Panchakarma eliminates these metabolic toxins from the body allowing permanent healing of tissues and channels. . Panchakarma has a full therapy role as preventive and curative procedure.
