Treatment in our Hospital
 
Panchakarma is a unique therapeutic procedure for purification, detoxification and rejuvenation of the body, mind and consciousness. It is known for its beneficial effects on overall health, wellness and self-healing.
 
Panchakarma literally means "five therapies". These five therapeutic means of eliminating toxins from the body are Vamanam (emesis), Virechanam (purgation), Nasyam (nasal insufflations), Basti (enema) and Raktamokshana (blood-letting by using leech and different instruments). This fivefold therapy is aimed at Shodhana i.e., the eradication of the basic cause of disease and later to achieve Shamana which means the mitigation of the disease and its symptoms.
 
Poorvakarma (pre purification measures)
Before the administration of Panchakarma therapy, the patient is prepared suitably with the administration of fat (herbal oils and clarified butter) i.e. Snehana or oleation therapy and sweating measures i.e. Swedana or sudation therapy as preparatory measures. Panchakarma therapy should not be undertaken without poorva karma otherwise it fails to eliminate the dosha situated in the tissues. The administration of fat therapy renders the body soft and disintegrates the accumulated dosha and sweating therapy melts the dosha stagnated in the subtle channels of circulation. At this stage administration of Panchakarma measures eliminates the dosha out of the body easily and effectively through respective pathways.
 
Pradhana Karma (Main procedures)
After preparing the patient with proper poorva karma he is subjected to the main measures of Panchakarma.
 
1. Vamanam (Emesis therapy):-
Vamanam is the procedure of eliminating waste products of the body through the upper passage by vomiting. Emesis is the therapy of choice in diseases of kapha dosha.

Ulcers, IBS, gastritis, intestinal colic, jaundice, kidney complaints, hypertension, hysteria, asthma, etc. are treated well by Virechanam.
 
3. Basti (Enema):-
Medication administered by the enema to get desired therapeutic effects is known as basti (enema) therapy. According to the Ayurveda Vata is the main morbid factor in the causation of disease pertaining to tissue and organs in the body and basti (enemata) therapy is the best treatment of excessive excited Vata, therefore, Basti karma is considered half the treatment of all the diseases described in Ayurveda. This therapy is also very useful as a health promoting measure. It is beneficial for old as well as for the young and there are no notable hazards in this therapy. Enemata therapy is of two types’ viz. Oily enema (Anuvasana basti) and Decoction enema (Niruha basti).
 
4. Nasyam (Nasal insufflations):-
Nasyam is a process by which drug is administered through the nostrils. It is useful in all the diseases manifesting above the neck (urdhwajatru gata) because it eliminates toxins through the nostril. On the basis of its therapeutic action and the way of administration it is classified in to many types like Virechana nasya (cleansing nasya) , Brahmana nasya (nutritive) Shamana nasya(pacifying) , Navana nasya (decoction nasyaMarsha nasya (ghee or oil), Pratimarshya(daily oil nasya) etc
 
5. Raktamokshana (Bloodletting):-
by application of medicinal leech (Jalaukacharanam) is described in Ayurveda by Sushrutha. Leech application is the safest method of bloodletting. Skin diseases like eczema, psoriasis, leucoderma respond very well to this treatment. It is also used for the treatment of wounds, ulcers and varicose veins for improvement of peripheral blood circulation.
 
Paschath  Karma (Post Panchakarma Procedure Management):
The procedures like internal intake of sneha in high dosage followed by the purificatory therapy is definitely going to create some sort of impairment in function of digestive power temporarily. So, immediately the subject is not allowed to come back to his normal diet patter.  In order to bring back the agni (digestive fire) to normal state some specific diet patterns are followed after the main procedure.  This is known as Samsarjana krama; in which initially easily digestible liquid dominant diet is given with gradual introduction of salt, pepper, mustard, oil etc.
