Understanding Panchakarma!

Pancha Karma is the cornerstone of Ayurvedic management of disease. Pancha Karma is the technique employed to get to the root cause of the problem and restore the essential balance of 'Tridosha' in body. Ayurveda advises undergoing Pancha Karma in conjunction with changes of seasons to clean the body, and to improve the metabolic processes. Pancha Karma is not only good for curing or alleviating disease but is also a useful tool in the ongoing maintenance of excellent health.

Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word that means "five actions" or "five treatments".
