The Panchakarma is the most significant treatment for purification and detoxification in Ayurveda. Panchakarma encompasses five therapies: the Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Vasti, Raktha and the Mokshana. These five therapies collectively help remove deep routed stress and illness causing toxins from the body while balancing the three Doshas (energies that govern all biological functions). The treatment involves daily massages and oil baths, herbal enemas and nasal administrations. Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for maintaining mental and physical hygiene and balance.
The Snehapanam (internal oleation) is a preparatory procedure for Panchkarma therapies. The effectiveness of the Panchkarma or the purification therapies depends upon the proper mobilization of humors (Doshas) from the periphery (Śākhā) which is to be achieved through this treatment. The therapy involves oral intake of medicated or non-medicated 'Sneha' or oil. Our experts use clarified butter (obtained from cow's milk) mixed /infused with medicinal herbs. Snehapanam is done in the morning after attending to the calls of nature, on an empty stomach. The dosage will depend on the health, age, diagnosed illness and digestive capacity of the patient. The treatment lasts between five and seven days depending on the condition of the patient and the illness being treated.
It is believed that the effects of Abhyangam are similar to those received when one is saturated with love. Abhyanga is infusing the body with 'prana' or vital life force. When we infuse all our cells with love, they are revitalised and energised. It involves massaging of the body with warm oil infused with healing herbs and balancing essential oils. Abhyangam moves ‘Prana’ (vital life force energy) within the body thereby nourishing and revitalizing all body organs. It aids the removal of toxins and stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation. It boosts the ability of nutrients to reach starved cells and allows for the removal of stagnant waste.
Virechanam cleanses the Pitta and purifies blood by clearing the toxins from the body. The treatment concentrates on the toxins that are accumulated in the liver and gall bladder and the gastro-intestinal tract. In Virechanam, the vitiated Doshas are eliminated through the rectum. The treatment is given in the morning after the person is given the "Snehapanam" and "Swedanam" for internal lubrication. The person is then given a certain prescribed dose of herbal medicines on an empty stomach. Within 1 to 2 hours, the bowels are emptied expelling all accumulated toxins with it. Virechanam is an excellent rejuvenating detox treatment. Virechanam is used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, skin ailments, gout, splenic disorders, ulcers, IBS, gastritis, intestinal colic, headaches, asthma, indigestion, gynecological disorders, hypertension and stress related ailments.
Snehavasti is one among the five classical detoxification programme (Panchakarma) and specially recommended for Vata disorders. Medicated oils or ghritams are used to administer an oil enema, which nourishes and lubricates the body. The main seat of Vata dosha is the Pakwashaya (large intestine); therefore Vasti, the medicated oil enema, is the main therapy for all Vata disorders such as constipation, neurological ailments, paralysis, flatulence, lower backache, gout, and rheumatism. Sneha Vasti results in nourished and rebuilt Dhatus (body tissues); it strengthens their activities, restores and strengthens the body’s immunity. It is particularly helpful in curing gastric and neurological disorders, acidity, acute and chronic aches, headache and other degenerative disorders.
In Kashayavasti, a herbal decoction made of honey, rock salt, medicated oil and herbs is administered through the anal route. A massage with warm herbal oils is given before the treatment. The treatment is administered as per prescribed dosage under supervision. The body dispels all toxins with the faecal matter. This treatment is particularly helpful in curing gastric and neurological disorders, acidity, acute and chronic aches, headaches, migraines and other degenerative disorders. It is a very effective detox and weight loss procedure.
Hydrotherapy is a time-honored technique that uses water by varying temperature and pressure to stimulate healing and to cleanse toxins. There are many different types of hydrotherapies practiced at Carnoustie including saunas, colonics and simple hot and cold showers. Hydrotherapy increases the circulation of blood and lymph, which increases waste elimination and replenishment of nutrients. It helps in flushing out the toxins and increasing oxygen in the body. Alternating temperatures for example, using the cold plunge after the sauna or steam room mechanically squeezes the toxins out of the body, bringing in vital nutrients and oxygen. Using hydrotherapy in a number of ways can increase the circulation and clearance of our main organs of detoxification: the skin, kidneys, colon, lymphatic system and liver.
Acupressure is based on the concept that life energy flows through ‘meridians’ in the body and that clearing blockages in these meridians with physical pressure can help clear the accumulated toxins from the body and restore the ability of our organs to function optimally. Acupressure is a good supplementary treatment to regulate and tone the liver and the kidneys (major detoxifying organs). It stimulates elimination and release of toxins through the bowels, improves the digestive system, relieves general fatigue and confusion and helps fortify the immune system.
Pranic healing is a simple yet powerful and effective system of ‘no-touch’ energy healing. Pranic healing focuses on cleansing and energizing. Cleansing means removal of the diseased energy from the health aura and energizing means adding ‘prana’ or life energy to the affected area. It is based on the fundamental principles that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the ability to heal itself and that the healing process is accelerated by increasing this life force that is readily available from the sun, air and ground within the recipient's body to address physical and emotional imbalances. Experts focus on cleansing the Aura to achieve inner stillness and calm in those who are suffering from acute mental stress and depression.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. One of the greatest healing health benefits of this therapy is stress reduction and relaxation. The process aids in the repair of body tissues, removes toxins and impurities and restores balance and health by cleansing the body. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy process in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a limitless source (God Force) to the patient via the Reiki practitioner. It is extremely powerful, wherein energy can be channeled by intention alone. Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind.
'Marma' is a Sanskrit word meaning hidden or secret. A Marma point is defined as an anatomical site where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet. In Ayurveda Marma points are treated as points of vital life force. When imbalances block the movement of free-flowing energy in the body, the resulting stagnation leads to physical and mental discomfort and disease. A professional therapist isolates the Marma points and cleans them out by increasing the blood flow to the affected part of the neuro-muscular junction stimulating the body’s biochemistry to produce neurochemicals and hormones that heal. Marma massage involves a full body massage with warm medicated oil, stimulating or massaging the Marma points on the body. It nourishes and revitalizes internal organs, strengthens muscles and bones, helps remove toxins, balances the Doshas and encourages good sleep.
Reflexology, or zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb and finger.
Thalam is one of the oldest and most popular Ayurvedic treatments for mental abnormalities and neurotic disorders. In this treatment a mixture of medicated oils and herbs is poured into a sealed funneled cap like mechanism and allowed to hold for a specific period of time (20-40 mins) to allow the mixture to be partially absorbed by the scalp. The treatment is known to nourish and rejuvenate the scalp and the brain cells and prevents and cures brain damage. This treatment soothes the ear, nose and throat passages as well as combats mental tension and headaches. It is very effective in curing anxiety disorder, insomnia, migraine, chronic depression and mental stress. It improves memory and concentration.
Udwarthanam is a special dry therapeutic deep tissue massage using herbal powders. The massage uses vigorous upward strokes rubbing the herbal powders on the body with bearable force. The procedure is performed in seven postures. The massage exfoliates the skin, breaks up fatty deposits and energises blood circulation. After completion the person is advised to take rest for 30 minutes, followed by a shower with warm water. The treatment reduces the excess fat accumulated in the subcutaneous tissues, strengthens and tones up the muscles, improves circulation, opens up the body channels (srotus) and releases the toxins. Its principal objective is to increase the metabolic rate, remove cellulite and help in weight reduction.
Gharshana literally means ‘to rub’. Udgarshanam is a dry brushing massage using raw silk gloves that shrinks fat cells, increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage. It is a traditional Ayurvedic dry massage that refreshes and stimulates the skin and lymphatic system, enhancing blood circulation and the release of accumulated toxins. The massage ends with a few cycles of alternative showers with hot and cold water. This further stimulates the blood circulation and rejuvenates the skin. It enhances vitality through improved metabolism. This treatment is specifically designed for weight loss, cellulite and water retention.
The word Sweda is derived from Sanskrit swid, meaning 'to sweat or to perspire'. Swedana is a practice of inducing sweat with the help of steam generated from medicated herbal decoctions. The fomentation is done by making the person to sit in a chamber or wooden box where steam emanates from boiling herbal decoction. Sweating opens the pores and rids the body of all impurities through the sweat glands. It thaws the doshas and clears the obstruction of channels of circulation, thus facilitating easy expulsion of faulty doshas. Ayurvedic fomentation is usually given after an oil massage. The treatment balances Vata and Kapha humors in the body, improves digestion, acts on fat deposits, relaxes sore muscles and relieves stress.
'Dhara' means a continuous and constant stream of liquid. Dhanyamla is a special type of treatment, derived from the word meaning cereal (dhanya) and vinegar (amla). Dhanyamla is a specially fermented medicinal mixture of oryza sativa, citrus rotundus, flattend oryza sativa, zingerver officianalis among other special ingredients. This warm mixture is poured over the body in a continuous strain. Dhanyamla is kept lukewarm during the full course of the treatment procedure.

This creates a favorable ground for growth of infecting organisms in the bronchial area. Stress, poor lifestyle, bad circulation, and lack of rejuvenative measures can deteriorate the body’s immune response to invading organisms in the bronchial area. The Ayurvedic treatment of Bronchitis is aimed at simultaneously correcting lung and stomach functions. Herbs are given to ease troubled breathing and expel phlegm.

Panchakarma is unlike any other detoxification program; it is fundamentally designed to remove a different form of toxin. While many toxins exist in our environment which accumulate and harm our bodies, Ayurvedic Panchakarma addresses a special toxin called ama which is formed within our own bodies. Ama is the by-product of inadequate digestion. It has the qualities of stickiness and heaviness. In our bodies it clogs our systems and damages our tissues. It is among the most damaging of forces in our bodies and contributes to disease.
Ayurveda Treatment for Nervous Disability
Ayurveda can prove to be a very curative approach in Neurological disorders as it helps in maintaining a healthy balance for the brain.

Ayurveda Treatment for Cervical Spondyliosis
In Ayurveda, this condition is known as Griva Sandhigata Vata. As the name suggests, the problem is caused by the vitiation of Vata dosha (biohumor associated with Air and Ether). When Vata gets aggravated it causes the depletion of the body’s tissues. The cold and drying qualities of Vata dosha lead to the decrease of the cushioning fluid and connective tissue between the joints that are ruled by Kapha dosha (biohumor associated with Earth and Water). In time, it leads to disc degeneration and eventually brings about spondylosis. Any external massage is not of much use. Violent massage with deep pressure is very harmful for the patient. Only gentle massage over the muscles of the neck and shoulder joints should be applied and for this purpose Mahanarayana taila is best suited. This gentle massage can be given 2-3 times a day. In winter season; this medicated oil should be gently warmed before application.
Ayurveda Treatment for Arthritis
Healthy, flexible joints rely on strong digestion and metabolism. Poor eating habits, weak digestion and stress can allow impurities to accumulate, and build up in the joints. This inhibits joint function, mobility, and comfort. Deep cleansing of the joints and tissues helps relieve immediate symptoms of arthritis. The key to preventing a future build-up of impurities is to create a healthier metabolic system — one that can easily and efficiently eliminate harmful toxins from the body. The raw material for building healthy joints and bones is nutrient plasma. Plasma flows throughout the body — like the sap in a tree — delivering vital nutrients to cells. The body uses these nutrients to build tissues, including joint tissue.
Ayurveda Treatment for Slip Disc
Ayurveda categorized Slip disc as one of diseases caused by vitiation Vata (one of the principle dosha in the body, responsible for the movement and functionality of the body). Treatment in Ayurveda is aimed at restoring the equilibrium through correction of the underlying functional in-equilibrium. Ayurvedic treatments for Slip disc concentrate on bringing back the aggravated vata to the state of equilibrium and thereby to the state of health. The therapies like Abyanga swedam, Nasyam, Pathrapotala swedam, Choornapinda swedam, Pizhichil, Shirodhara, Kadeevasthy, Greevavasthy, Navarakizhi, Vasti etc. are done as per the necessity and condition. These therapies are directed towards relieving the inflammatory changes, releasing the spasms and nerve compressions in the affected area, strengthening the supportive tissues holding the spine, nourishing the joints through improving the circulation. Usually the treatment period is 4 – 5 weeks according to the severity of the disease.
Ayurveda Treatment for Various Skin Diseases
According to Ayurveda, the skin has six layers, found externally as well as stretching out to the more profound levels of the body. A skin disease is established profoundly into different tissues, such as fat, muscles, blood and so forth. Ayurveda dependably tries to find the disease by treating it, particularly as indicated by its cause. The disease being deep seated, it is hard to alter the issue rapidly. Ayurvedic skin treatments may take a couple of weeks to remove the indications.
Ayurveda Treatment for Chronic Back Pain
Balancing vitiated Vata is the best way to treat chronic backache. One of the best Ayurvedic treatments for back pain is Kati Basti (Back oil dough therapy). It is a form of external oleation (Snehana) therapy in Ayurveda. For this ayurveda spine treatment, the patient is made to lie face down. A “dam” made with gram flour dough of four to five inches in diameter is created on the patient’s back (lumbar-sacral area). Medicated oil is poured into this dough ring. When cool, the oil is soaked up using cotton gauze and the process is repeated several times.

Shodhana chikitsa (Detoxification) done through Panchakarma therapies like Vamana, Virechana, Rakta mokshna etc & an exclusive therapy called Thakra dhara.
Ayurveda Treatment for Facial Paralysis

Special tablets, choornas and ghee preparations are used to purify blood and to enhance the functioning of brain and augmenting reformation.There would be other restoration and rehabilitation therapies as part of the treatment, which will be looked upon after the consultation by Ayurvedic experts.
Ayurveda Treatment for Diabetes
Ayurveda does not regard Diabetes as a disease that can be treated by mere medicine or by a dietary regimen. Madhumeha is classified as a Maha Rog (Major Disease) because, if not treated in time, it can lead to several complications in the body, including eye problems, joint pains, impotency, kidney failure, sexual and urologic problems, and more.
