Paschatkarma

The Panchakarma treatment is the post-treatment care, including diet regimen, focused on bringing the patient back into normal diet and lifestyle. The therapy aims at correcting the imbalance of the doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha – and restoring their inherent equilibrium, through five cleansing procedures.

In this stage of Samana, corrective and rejuvenating treatments are given to ensure the lasting beneficial effects of the cleansing procedure for the patient, coupled with the right diet and lifestyle regimen. Reverting to the old ways of life and diet could worsen one’s condition by facilitating faster and easier accumulation of toxins, and hence, following the instructions of the doctor is vital for the healing process. One or more of the therapeutic massage treatments mentioned below form part of this segment of treatment, based on the condition of each individual:

Elakizhi: massage with warm pouches containing different herbs and medicinal leaves to reduce inflammation in the body and to strengthen muscles; Njarangakizhi: with warm pouches containing lemon, leaves, and herbs;

Dhanyakizhi: with pouches made with grains;
