What is Panchakarma and why is Detoxification Important?
PanchaKarma is an ancient system of healing with Ayurvedic detoxification and rejuvenation therapies that facilitate the removal of deep rooted toxins and emotions in the body and mind.
When our agni (digestive fire) is strong, our body digests the food properly, creates healthy tissues and eliminates waste products efficiently. But when your agni is weak (due to weather changes, improper diet and lifestyle habits), digestion is incomplete and creates toxins that get accumulated in the body. This toxic accumulation is known as ama.
Accumulation of Ama in the body blocks the information, flow of energy and nourishment in the body. As per Ayurveda, this accumulation of ama (toxins) is the root cause of all diseases.
Similar to strong agni digesting the food, when your emotional agni is strong, your mind and heart will be able digest whatever energy and information is nourishing and eliminate the rest. When emotions are not metabolized properly, mental toxins are produced.
Strong digestive fire, elimination of toxins from the body are crucial to maintain optimal health. And Panchakarma cleansing is very beneficial in removing the toxins from the body and mind. Panchakarma is recommended when an individual health goes out of balance or on a seasonal basis
