What Is Panchakarma Detox And How It Is Related To Immunity

Immunity Oct, 2022

Panchakarma, which literally means 'five detox processes' in Sanskrit, is a transformative ayurvedic therapy to remove toxins and to restore the natural constitution of body. 

Every single day, our body accumulates various kinds of toxins from food, drinks, environment. Since it balances the doshas and cleares toxins from the entire system, there are numerous benefits of Panchakarma like providing enhanced immunity to the body and even ensuring a better digestive system. 

This also makes for a good weight-loss program, improves skin lustre and helps in slow aging. The five Panchakarma therapies are Vamana (Emesis), Virechana (Therapeutic purgation), Nasya (Nasal medication), Anuvasana Basti (Medicated oil enema) and Niruha Basti (Herbal decoction enema). 

They help in cleansing the body and have a relaxing effect on the body and mind. Since it balances the doshas and cleares toxins from the entire system, there are numerous benefits of Panchakarma like providing enhanced immunity to the body and even ensuring a better digestive system. 

This also makes for a good weight-loss program, improves skin lustre and helps in slow aging." The general healthy living strategies are the good way to start boosting your immune system. Keeping our immune system and healthy and strong must be your first priority. 

You have a natural way of boosting your immune system with Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, health is defined as three fundamental energies (doshas) – vata (wind), pitta (fire), and kapha (Earth). 

These are the primary forces that are responsible for the balancing the human’s body, mind and emotions. When there is less stress and good flow of energy within the human body is balanced, then natural defense systems will be strong and can easily defend against the disease. For special immune system boosters, Ayurveda recommends a special treatment that is Panchakarma. 

The “beej-bhumi” theory is the theory of immunity in Ayurveda, which means ‘seed’ and ‘land’. Where body is seen as the land.

Which infections ‘bugs’ can grow as seeds. If the body is filled with ‘ama’ which means toxins and lack in ‘ojas’ (balanced digestion), then infection will find it to be fertile land for spreading and growing like seeds in land. 

An Ayurveda recommends you take the highly effective detox and purification treatment that is called as Panchakarma. This therapy is one of the quickest and effective way to remove the toxins from the body. 

The purpose of this treatment is purification. Panchakarma is a process used to cleanse the body of all unwanted toxic materials.

This treatment removes out excess vata, pitta, and kapha from the digestive tract in order to have a complete and balanced digestion. 

This therapy is beneficial as it includes curative and preventive actions for various diseases. Panchakarma treatment cleans toxins from entire system and enhances your immune system.

It heals your digestive system and balances doshas. It decreases stress in your body and gives you deep relaxation. It improves skin luster and anti-aging. 

This therapy also helps for weight-loss if you’re overweight. This Panchakarma is beneficial for everyone because the body is constantly creating toxins and it is important to cleanse and detox the body regularly.

Treating the disease with Panchakarma sodhana(purification) approach is the ultimate way to heal and balance the body and to boost your immune system. 

This is a preparatory procedure required before the main treatment, to soften the tissues so that the lipid-soluble toxins deposited into them are liquefied and flow back into the digestive tract. From here, they can be eliminated. 

This treatment prepares the patient mentally and physically for the main procedure of Panchakarma. It involves three procedures:

• Pachan Karma – improves digestion with herbs and fasting so that the patient can digest the ghee (clarified butter) which is provided to liquefy the fat-soluble toxins.

• Snehan Karma – medicated ghee is given to the patient in increasing doses in order to aggravate and liquefy the fat-soluble toxins deposited in the deep tissues.

• Swedan Karma – a full body steam bath is given to the patient thereby opening up the body channels and allowing the heat to liquefy the toxins further. 

This facilitates their movement from the tissues to the digestive tract. This is the Panchakarma, a five-step procedure which is highly individualized depending on the needs, age, digestive strength, immune system, and other factors. 

This intense Panchakarma procedure can only be done under the guidance of an Ayurvedic practitioner. The five karmas to cleanse the complete body are: Vamanam (therapeutic emesis) – induced vomiting which helps clear the upper GI tract to the duodenum (end of the stomach) and a part of the respiratory tract.

Virechanam (purgation) – induced purgation clears the GI tract from the duodenum to the exit .

Anuvasana (enema using medicated oil) – the oil enema helps lubricate the rectal area andremove the lipid soluble waste out through the anus.

Nasyam – nasal inhalation of medicated substances which help clear the respiratory tract and the para nasal sinuses. 

This is a post-therapy dietary regime to restore the body’s digestive and absorptive capacity to its normal state. It includes rejuvenating treatments, lifestyle management, diet management, and intake of herbal products. 

It includes the following procedures: Sansarjan Karma – food therapy after detoxification, which aims at gradually increasing the patient’s diet from liquids to semi-solids to a normal diet. Rasayan Adi Prayogam – a rejuvenating rasayan therapy which aids in increasing natural immunity and enhancing your general well-being. Shaman Chikitsa – a pacification therapy with herbs and lifestyle management. 

It is important to note that a panchakarma procedure is designed specifically for an individual after a thorough physical examination and pulse diagnosis.
