How will Ayurveda work?

Unlike traditional medicine, Ayurveda tends to get to the root of the illness. Not only does Ayurveda focus on relieving symptoms and pain but also, and more importantly – on treatment, prevention and building healthy habits for a healthy living while emphasizing the need of each patient to keep an open mind and welcome positive changes.

Ayurveda looks upon each disease as the result of the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) going out of balance.

Each dosha is seen as a unique bio-element that combines energy, information and substance and corresponds to a particular set of features including metabolism, body type, physical and emotional characteristics. The imbalance is caused by poor eating and sleeping habits, stress and fatigue, and is most frequently rooted in an unhealthy metabolic system that fails to properly remove bio-toxins.

It comes as no surprise that Ayurveda stresses the importance of detox procedures which are later followed by a number of pacifying, relaxing and revitalizing therapies, such as massage and scrubbing, acupuncture and herbal baths, compresses (packs) and oiling.

The healing of your body and mind will start with a detox programme called panchakarma (pancha stands for “five”, karma – “procedures” in Sanskrit). Before embarking on a crucial panchakarma journey you will have to keep to a diet, empty your stomach and bowels, have your body oiled and bathed and then take a steam bath to stimulate sweating.

Panchakarma, in its turn, consists of five stages: vamana karma (cleansing of stomach, lungs and sinuses), virechana karma (purgation), basti karma (colonic cleansing with decoctions and oils), nasya karma (injection of oil drops into nostrils) and in some cases raktamokshana karma (skin and blood cleansing and stimulation of blood formation). Each of these procedures is recommended by a doctor who is familiar with the patient’s past medical history, current health issues and needs.

Panchakarma has to be looked upon as a vitally important procedure that demands a fair share of your time and effort. It is also essential to follow your doctor’s prescriptions and keep to a vegetarian diet. Your efforts will be richly rewarded with a healthy weight for your height and age, clear skin, an open mind and a feeling that is hard to describe but so exciting to feel – the incredible lightness of body and mind. With all your senses reactivated and your metabolism improved, you will see the world in a different light and discover a brand new palette of colours, sounds, tastes and impressions.
Panchakarma will be followed by healing, rejuvenating and revitalizing procedures that will boost your productivity and enthusiasm. You may be prescribed herbal decoctions and baths, Ayurvedic head and body massage, acupuncture, oil pouring and other balance-restoring procedures.
