Our indulgence in harmful and unhealthy lifestyle, mental stress and lack of exercise is fast becoming a road to diseases. This leads to diminished agni, dosha imbalance and subsequently accumulation of ama (toxins) in the body which is becoming the main cause of lifestyle disorders like obesity, hypertension, malignancy, and heart diseases among others. and 21-day Panchakarma Treatment is all you need to get a deep rejuvenation.
Ayurveda aims to maintain the health of the one who is healthy and to treat the one who is diseased. Two main pathways of treatment are done at the Wellness Resort in Cuba- shamana (to pacify) and shodhana (to purify). Panchakarma is advised when the Dosha imbalance is deep-rooted.
“Pancha-karma” means a set of 5 procedures namely-
Vamana (Therapeutic emesis)- Prescribed for kapha imbalance in the body, by inducing vomiting in a controlled manner under a doctor’s supervision. People with chronic and allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, asthma, chronic urticaria, acne, psoriasis, obesity etc. benefit from Vamana.
Virechana (Therapeutic purgation)- Advised for pitta disorders. This is done by controlled and supervised induction of purgation in anemia, liver disorders, skin conditions, gout, and gut health issues. It restores the gut microbiome and maintains the agni.
Anuvasana basti (medicated oil enema)- Basti is considered the best treatment for most vata disorders. Here either medicated oil or medicated decoction of vata controlling herbs is administered through the rectal route. Oil enema is indicated in joint pains, mental stress, paralysis, facial palsy, urogenital disorders etc.
Niruha basti (medicated kashaya/decoction enema)- Vata pacifying herbs are used to make decoction and administered through the rectal route. It is indicated in vata disorders and to strengthen the nervous system.
Nasya (medicated nasal oil instillation)- Medicated oils are instilled in the nose to cure premature greying of hair, migraine, headaches, neck stiffness etc.
Therapies are advised based on initial assessment of your health and the ritu (season). Season change brings substantial shifts in the doshas for the body to need a reboot and function well.
