Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, made up of the words “ayus” and “veda”. “Ayus” means life and “Veda” means knowledge or science. The term “ayurveda” thus means the “knowledge of life” or “the science of life”. According to the ancient Ayurvedic scholar Charaka, “ayu” comprises the mind, body, senses and the soul. The aim of this system is to prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life.

Panchakarma

Panchakarma is a sanskrit word that means “Five actions” or “Five treatments”. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Ayurveda says that imblanced doshas create waste matter. This waste matter is called Ama in Ayurveda. Ama is a foul smelling, sticky, noxious substance that needs to be evacuated from the body as throughly as possible. Panchakarma permanently eliminates these toxins from the body, allowing healing and restoration of the tissues, channels, digestion and mental functions. It involves daily massages and oil baths and is extremely pleasant experience. Ayurvedic recommends Panchakarma as seasonal treatment for toning mind and body system.
