Panckarma

What is Panchkarma?

The word Ayurveda is derived from two words Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning science or knowledge. Ayurveda means the science of life. It has originated and practiced in India for more than 5000 years. Ayurveda is considered as a part of Atharvaveda. It describes the way of life for a good health as a preventive method and also as curative system. For the four goals of life which are Dharma Artha kama and Moksha a person should be in a state of good mental and physical health which can be attained by following the way of life mentioned according to Ayurveda and helps to remain disease free.

All the matter in the universe is created from five elements or mahabhutas prithvi(earth), Jala(water), Vayu(air), Agni(fire) and Akasha(space). Man is a part of the universe and so is panchbhutatmak in nature. In man there are three doshas namely vata(air), pitta (fire) and kapha(water) and seven dhatus Rasa(the fluid circulating in the body), Rakta( blood), Mamsa(the muscle), Meda(the fats), Asthi(bones), Majja(bone marrow) Shukra(semen). The malas include Mutra(urine), Purisha(stool) and Sweda(sweat). The human body is a congregation of dosha dhatu and mala. The mental state is governed by the gunas  satwa, rajas and tamas. When the doshas dhatus are in a state of equilibrium then the health is maintained and if the equilibrium is disturbed then disease is caused. The trayaupstambha are Ahara, Nidra and Brahmcharya.

About Panchkarma

Panchakarma means five therapies which  includes Vamana(emesis) Virechana(purgation) Nasya(Instilling medicine through nose) Basti(Medicinal Enema) and Raktmokshana( blood letting). These are used for both purification of the body(shodhana) and rejuvenation.

Purva karma

Before performing the major panchakarma procedures the body has to be prepared with the purva karmas. They help to make the doshas in proper state to be eliminated. The purvakarmas help to mobilize the doshas in the body

 

Deepana and Pachana

According to Ayurveda most of the diseases are caused by the accumulation of Ama(undigested particles correlated with free radicals) in the body. The major reason for its formation is the decrease in the Agni (the digestive fire at the level of stomach) and the dhatvagni ( at the level of various dhatus in the body). Diseases are caused by the vitiation of Agni and once the agni is balanced health is regained. To carry out various panchakarma procedures firstly the agni has to be revived and the Ama condition has to be corrected.

Dipana and pachana are to done before going for panchakarma therapies. Dipana drugs increase the agni but do not digest the Ama whereas the Pachana drugs digest the ama but do not increase the agni. Deepana drugs are Agnimahabhoot pradhana and pachana drugs are Agni and Vayu mahabhoot pradhana.

NADI (PULSE)
Nadi is one of the significant diagnostic tools in Ayurveda. Many vaidyas can diagnose only by examining the pulse of the patient. Index, middle, and ring fingers are placed over the root of the thumb to assess the rate, rhythm, speed, and quality of the Nadi. In Ayurveda, the movement of the pulse is compared to the movements of different animals. Vata pulse is compared to the motion of a leech or snake. Pitta pulse resembles the movement of a sparrow, crow, or frog. Kapha pulse is like that of a swan or pigeon.
MALA (STOOL)
Amount, colour, smell, and consistency of the stool are some of the parameters to assess the doshik predominance. Vata aggravated conditions cause stool to become dry, hard, and blackish in colour. Pitta dominance causes loose or liquid, greenish or yellowish in colour and foul-smelling stools. Kapha in excess causes stool to become bulky, slimy, or with mucus and excess in amount.

Kapha dominance causes watery, very white urine. Rakta vitiated urine is presented with blood and is hot.
SHABDA (VOICE)
