What is Panchkarma
Protection of the body from diseases is the main theme of Ayurveda, then comes curative aspect on illness, if any. The Panchkarma method of prevention and cure adopted should fit into the Maharishi’s definition- “expression of the nature of consciousness operating in a lively way of physiological harmony of mind, body and spirit.”
This can be achieved through Intra Corporeal Depuration to cleanse the body by flushing out morbid matter and balancing 3 humors, the tridosha.
Panchkarma measures of prevention increase bio capacity realization of body and mind to postpone premature ageing. All the channels minute and gross are cleansed from the tiny DNA levels to cellular levels then to tissue and then to whole body levels. The detoxification of the poisons inhaled, ingested and also those that enter the body through the nasal, optic, aural, urino-genital, rectal and through innumerable pores of skin are all flushed out from the body by Panchkarma cleansing methods. To increase the resistance capacity of the body further to adopt Rasayana and rejuvenation methods and to promote immunity of the body to gift up longevity of life, Panchkarma is required.
Benefits of Panchkarma
Human body is always surmounted by the atmospheric toxins and harmful chemicals of radiations from green house effect, ozone, gases like methane, carbon dioxide, x-rays, petrochemicals and fertilizers etc., which pollute the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Industrial wastes and carbon monoxide further add to pollution. In the past 8000000 years ice core data shows that more and more carbon dioxide produced by fossil fuel burning, carbon dioxide concentration has increased from 313 ppm in 1960 to 389 ppm in 2010. As a result 63000 premature deaths every year in African city of Dar alone have been reported. It is due to toxic discharge from transport vehicles, trucks, motor cycles, motor cars etc. The artificial polluting substances registered as 100000 are industrial wastes that cause interference in health as allergens, immuno-suppressants, causing hepatic and dermal diseases even cancer. These toxins have to be expelled to de-toxicate the body. Panchkarma detoxification procedures help to remove these toxins, has been proved scientifically on research line in USA.
30% of Germans suffer from pollutant lipophil poisons, discharged from atmosphere and enter the human body fatty cells and tissue that lie at the deeper levels from tiny tissue level to gross body levels.
Food toxins: Coal tar dyes in all artificial flavor, soft drinks, cosmetics and even many medicines cause cancer. Food additives like MSG, VHT, VHA, DES have labels displayed as SAFE but actually they are not, but only toxic poisons.
DES (Diethylstilbestrol) causes cancer of uterus, breast etc.
Nitrosomines cause cancer of liver, Stomach, brain, gall bladder, kidney etc. Dr. William Lijinsky of Nebraska University has observed this.
