What is Panchakarma and Why was it Invented

In Ayurveda - the human body is called as 'Sarira'. If you see the root meaning of the word 'Sarira', it goes like "that which keeps dying every moment"  or "that which keeps eliminating waste every moment". By going with this definition, it means  The efficiency of your waste elimination  is the efficiency of your health and your body. If there is a block in the flow of elimination of waste  then there is a block in your energy levels. So Ayurveda says there are two types of diseases. Disease because of Over Nutrition  and disease because of Under Nutrition  And what it says is disease because of  over nutrition is more difficult to treat than the disease of under nutrition, because eliminating waste is more difficult than  giving/providing nutrition to the body. and thats why Ayurveda came up with a  treatment methodology called as Panchakarma  which specailizes in waste elimination intensively from our body  in a cellular level.

How does Panchakarma heal our body?

How does Panchakarma heal our body ? We need to understand the human body that we are living in  is one of the most powerful creations of Mother Nature. It has existed over 2 million years and it has corrected itself over the years Whenever there is something that goes wrong the body knows to correct itself. Whatever medicines that we are buying today from the pharmacy its already there inside us be it a painkiller, be it a pill to sleep or the hormones its already produced in our body. Healing is something that has to happen naturally in our body and what Panchakarma does is it allows the body to heal itself Whatever blocks are there inside the body  that stops from the healing to happen Panchakarma helps to release it. Its like gravity is always free you donʼt have to force or push something to go down. Gravity happens naturally. Same way healing is natural  and effortless just like the way gravity is We just need to allow it and thats how Panchakarma helps it.

Who needs Panchakarma?

Healthy human being wakes up fresh  and energetic in the morning and goes to sleep at night  with a deep need for rest. Whenever there is an imbalance in this natural cycle, thats when our body needs an intense purification Its like in the morning we wake up tired  we feel heavy in the morning or we feel like we need 2 or 3 more coffees to get going in the day. During the day time  we always have a need to take a rest  or to sleep or to take a nap Infact the word stress means lack of energy to face the reality and if you are getting stressed out very easily or your immune systems efficiency is low you are constantly getting into allergies all these are signs our body is heavy and the food you eat instead of making it into energy your body is accumulating it into fat and thats a sign that our body needs a Panchakarma to clean ourself, to purify ourself so that we wake up fresh and energetic in the morning  and goes to sleep naturally

Womenʼs Health and Ayurveda

There is a story in Ancient India which talks about if you want to understand the health and happiness  of a society you need to see how healthy and happy the women in that society is which is a good indicator to see the happiness and health level of a society. Hence Ayurveda gives a lot of importance to the womenʼs health And one of the important aspects of womenʼs health that ayurveda focuses on is the Menstrual Cycle when the Menstrual Cycle is regular her fertility is very good when the menstrual cycle is irregular or painful or scanty this will highly influence her fertility as well. so there are many treatments herbs recommended including lifestyle changes to regulate the menstrual cycle in a woman. and its the same post menopause cases  whether its hot flushes or heat waves or pain in the joints or high inflammation there are many treatment methodologies including Panchakarma to regulate the post menopausal issues in a woman.

Can Panchakarma be done near a beach location?

One of the common questions that we get is is it good to do panchakarma near a beach location? now when you read the text books of Ayurveda  where it explains about how to do Panchakarma  for example like Ashtange Hrdyam,  no where its mentioned that you should not do panchakarma near a beach area or a mountain area what it mentions is exposure to extreme wind, extreme cold, extreme heat is to be strictly avoided during the panchakarma days which means whether you are near the beach or in the mountains or n the heart of a city in the concrete jungle  you should avoid your exposure to these three things. as long as you do that  in a very good way The Panchakarma purification will be at its best

What is special about Sitaram Ayurveda Beach Retreat

My name is Dr Vignesh Devraj. I'm an Ayurvedic Physician i come from a family which has a tradition of  over 90 years in Ayurveda The reason why we found Sitaram Ayurveda Beach Retreat is when I started my practise as an ayurvedic physician  assisting my patients to do Panchakarma I never did it for myself  and the day I did it for myself, I realised  how transformational it is for me  and how it changed my life with my energy levels with my enthusiasm it was like a complete shift in my life and when i did this I realised how important it is to have a good space when you do Panchakarma like connecting with nature, a silence to connect with your inner self and we live at a time when we are highly disconnected and most of our energy is invested to connect with the outside world So we wanted a space where you can connect  with nature and your inner world and thats how we came up with the concept of  Sitaram Ayurveda Beach Retreat where you have a beautiful garden, where you connect with nature  at the same time you have a Panchakarma purification and you go back new fresh energetic confident and enthusiastic to give the best creative output that you can do to a sustainable harmonious society

What are the Contra Indications of Panchakarma

Now if you are below 16 years old or if you are above 70 years old then for this age group panchakarma cannot be done and if you are a women and if you in  your menstruating cycle days on these days panchakarma cannot be done  and for a pregnant women too panchakarma cannot be done another thing with the emotional aspect if you have a weak body and weak mind, then Panchakarma cannot be done Another thing if you have under weight or if you have diseases of under nutrition like Anorexia Bulimia then Panchakarma cannot be done because it has to let the toxins out so if you have to let things out if you have low weight then it is a contra indication. so these are some of the brief aspects  where Panchakarma cannot be done.

How can Panchakarma help in overcoming Burnout?

The word‘ Burnoutʼ or 'Stressed out'  when we hear this what it means is there is low performance or under efficiency This under efficiency in a body means our productivity of a brain has come down Its like the expectation is here but the productive output is here. So this gap is making the body give up  and thats when we have this burnout When it comes to our brain  it is one of the organs that takes a lot of our bodyʼs energy even when you sit idle our brain takes  about 20% of your bodyʼs energy and another organ that determines the  efficiency of the brain is our GUT. Its like the efficiency of your GUT determines the overall health of your body according to Ayurveda. Infact the latest research on Endocrinology states that  he feel good hormone called serotonin  95% is produced in our GUT. and the whole idea of Panchakarma is to reset  the workings of your GUT to enhance the efficiency of your GUT. It means the food you take or the Nutrients that you receive is converted into good energy that our Body can use so the possibility of a burnout or stress level is minimal thats how Panchakarma helps in a situation of burnout or Stress.

Benefits of Panchakarma

What benefits can we expect after doing a proper Panchakarma? The results can vary from person to person depending on their condition the intensity of the treatment and the duration of the treatment. However some of the feedbacks that we get are they feel light in their body Some people say they have weight loss They feel more energy to do the things that they want to do Their sleep is better, their digestion is better Now the complexion of the skin has improved The allergies have gone down Their immune system is much better And in some cases when we check the blood reports before the panchakarma and after the panchakarma The cholesterol levels have come to the normal values Their inflammation markers like  High sensitive Carbohydrate Reactive Protien ( Hs C.R.P) that has come down to the normal value. IIs like a complete new life after Panchakarma Its like they feel like a phoenix, like a break through in their life that they always wanted.
