To route out toxins and diseases out of the body, Ayurveda prophesizes a very specialized therapeutic procedure – PANCHAKARMA.
As a part of "SodhanaChikitsa" or detoxification therapy, Panchakarma pertains to the five fold treatment procedures administered to a person as a remedy against various ailments and also in order to evacuate toxins out of the body.
The three stages of Panchakarma are
Poorva Karma, Pradhana Karma and Paschata Karma
Snahaha Karma and Swedana Karma are stages of Poorva Karma
Vamanam, Virechanam, Vasthi, Nasyam and Raktamokshanaare stages of Pradhana Karma
During Paschata Karma, the restoration of the metabolism into its normal course is done through a carefully designed diet and lifestyle program.
