Nattika Beach Resort , Thrissur : Ayurveda - Panchakarma Package
Ayurveda, with its origin traced backed to more than 5000 years ago, is the oldest system of health known to man.
The term Ayurveda is derived from two words ayus meaning life and veda meaning science combined together to mean 'the science of life. Considered as an upaveda (subtext) of atharvaveda (one of the four ancient science texts) Ayurveda is believed to be created by brahma -the Hindu god of creation- not only as a system of medicine and treatment, but also as life style science for maintaining physical and mental health and well-being in the individual and social level.Explained in Ayurveda are the advices for the health and prevent diseases as well as the description about causes, pathology, symptoms, prognosis and treatment of different disease. Also the structure and functions of body, preparation and uses of different medicines etc. are described.
All views and descriptions of Ayurveda are explained rooted on two theories:
1. The panchamahabhootha theory: This theory states that all living and non-living things in the universe is made up of 5 basic elements - Earth,Water,Fire,Air,Space
The different proportions in which these elements combine determine the difference in properties among all substances.
2. Thetri dosha theory: This theory is used to explain the physiological functions of beings. The life activities of all living things are attributed to three doshas (life energies roughly) - the vata,pithaandkapha- which too are made of the mahabhoothas. The balanced and synchronised functioning of the three doshas in physical and mental levels creates health and imbalance causes diseases.
All the 3 doshashas different properties and do related but different functions in body. The decrease or increase of a dosha is understood respectively by the under or over expression of its properties in body or mind.
Concept of prakriti (body nature):
Each individual has his own unique proportion of doshas which he acquires at the time of birth and will prevail till death without much change. This proportion called prakriti determines ones built physical and mental characters, immunity, vulnerability to specific diseases etc.
Concept of treatment:
Considering that diseases are caused by either increase or decrease of doshas, there are only two ways to treat them:
either by increasing doshas: brumhanam- building up,
or by decreasing doshas: lamghanam - breaking down.
Lamghanam could be done in two ways:
1. By suppressing the increased doshas by medicines and regulated diet and activities - shamanam(pacification)
2. By removing the highly excess doshas out of body - shodhanam(cleaning).
The renowned panchakarmatherapies are methods of shodhana(cleaning) of different doshas.
Panchakarma are the five (pancha) therapies used for cleaning the highly increased doshas from the body. Theyare
- Nasyam(nasal purification)
- Vamanam(medicine induced emesis)
- Virechanam(medicine induced purgation)
- Nirooham(decoction enema)
- Anuvasanam(oil enema)
Raktha moksha(bloodletting) is also considered as a main cleaning treatment according to some texts.
The pancha karmas are done only for those with a high imbalance of doshas and one or more therapies from the five will be chosen by doctors only after carefully considering which of the doshas are increased and to which extent.
Ayurvedic treatments are done in different stages.
This cycle may be repeated several times according to the conditions and progress in symptoms.
- The main purification therapies are often preceded by a preparatory phase (poorva karma) which includes administration of medicated ghee and other medicines and different external therapies.
- This is followed by main the cleaning therapy (pradhana karma).
- After the main cleaning therapy there will be an aftercare (paschat karma) which is followed for the gradual buildup of digestive power, energy and restoration of doshas in a balanced state. This includes regulations in diet and activities and medicines.
In Ayurveda diet and activity regulation is considered equally important as medicines and therapies. So the entire treatment is overseen by special diets, yoga and exercises specific to body nature, climate and imbalance.
