Panchakarma Retreat Program is a deep ayurvedic purification of the body for balance and harmony. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Panchakarma means (five actions) is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind, and consciousness. It’s known as a deep purification process for health and wellness!
Every human consists of 5 elements (air, water, space, fire, earth). These 5 elements create our body constitution. According to it, every person can be Vata, Pitta or Kapha. Vata means air, pitta – fire, Kapha – mucus. Vata is responsible for the process of movement in our body (passage of meal), pitta responsible for transformation (metabolism), Kapha for oleation. Ayurveda identifies humans as healthy when all 3 doshas (Vata, pitta & Kapha) are in balance.
The aim of Panchakarma – bring all 3 Doshas in harmony.
Panchakarma starts with the consultation of the high qualified ayurvedic physicians (BMS). A doctor will determine body constitution, disease structure, health state, pulse, tongue, eyes, hands diagnostic and suitable method of detox therapy. Every day you will get particular ayurvedic treatment.
