What is panchakarma?
Panchakarma is an ancient method of Ayurvedic rejuvenation aimed at getting rid of stress and defect of physiology. It relaxes the mind and body, cleanses of toxins and toxins. It restores the functioning of the immune system, improves the activity of the cardiovascular and lymphatic apparatus. Allows you to take extra care of your body and think about life.
"Pancha" translates as "five", and "karma" refers to "activity", which means five treatment directions. It is a component of Ayurvedic medicine, balances bioenergy.
According to Ayurveda, a person is born with an ideal genetic structure called "prakriti".Incorrect way of life, work that takes a lot of time, stresses and other factors cause an imbalance of bioenergy and lead to the emergence of various diseases.
Panchakarma evokes the body's ability to excrete toxins. Some of them are removed from the body by a large amount of water, as these substances completely dissolve in the liquid and exit through the kidneys and skin. There are toxins that can be removed only by oil-containing fluids and they go through the gastrointestinal tract and skin. It is for this purpose that panchakarma at home offers the use of oils for different types of body. This, according to the Ayurvedic system, brings the mind and body to equilibrium, rejuvenates the body and saturates it with nutrients.
Phases of medical purification
Panchakarma at home is divided into three stages, it is:
- preparatory stage - purvakarma;
- therapeutic stage - passchat-karma;
- support procedures.
Duration of cleaning at home - 10-14 days, under the supervision of a specialist, it lasts 21 days.
The first stage of
Panchakarma at home begins with internal oiling. This stage lasts three days. Throughout these days, on an empty stomach, 50 grams of liquid pre-heated ghee( this melted butter) are consumed, washed with hot water. According to the constitution type in ghee, other substances are added:
- cotton - a little salt;
- pitta - accept oil without additives;
- Kapha is a mixture of ginger, black and red peppers.
After receiving the melted butter, you can after 30 minutes. This is due to the fact that before food enters the body ghee must be absorbed in the stomach and intestines. If it's difficult to immediately drink 50 grams of melted butter, then you can take ghee two tablespoons fifteen minutes before the meal.
According to ayurveda, ghee helps to carry out internal oiling, which facilitates the withdrawal of ama( toxins and wastes) into the gastrointestinal tract.
With increased triglycerides, high cholesterol or sugar, ghee is replaced with linseed oil. This product contains fatty acids and helps reduce cholesterol. It should be consumed for three days, two spoons, fifteen minutes before meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Ayurvedic medicine recommends a purification procedure on a growing moon. After all, it is the moon that affects all processes occurring in the body.
To prepare ghee, take a good quality butter( 82.5%) and heat it. Then remove the white foam and sediment.
The second stage of
After carrying out the internal oiling, it is necessary to proceed to the external one. It is possible not to wait for the internal oiling to end, but at the same time begin to do the external oiling.
For these purposes, select the oil for massage. Which is better to choose? This product is used, based on the type of constitution of the body. For cotton wool, sesame will suit, for pita - sunflower, and for kapha - corn or mustard.
If a person has a mixed personality type, then the oils mix together. If an imbalance is disturbed in one of the doshas, you should take more oil for it. During the week, preferably in the evening, two hours after a meal, about 200-250 warmed oiled unrefined products are applied to the body. Oil for massage( which is better to choose, advise experts on Ayurveda) rub about 15-20 minutes. Apply it in the direction from the head to the toes.
In a room where self-massage is done, it should be warm. The body after the treatment with oil should not cool down. After rubbing the oil in the skin, take a shower or bath with hot water, without detergent. If a little oil remains on the surface of the skin, then it should not be removed. It is necessary for effective oiling and must be absorbed deep into the dermis.
For seven days( this is how much external oiling lasts) and two hours after the evening meal, you need to take two teaspoons of trifal churna. This Ayurvedic drug can be purchased in esoteric online stores.
The dosage of trifal churna is selected independently. Stool after taking the drug looks softened or slightly liquid. Feces should not be completely liquid. If there is no desire to go "big" in the morning, then after eating breakfast, another portion of trifal chupna is drunk. Beforehand, the product is poured into a glass of boiling water, everything is mixed well and drunk without neglecting the precipitate. Trifal churna is a gentle laxative product. It tones up the body and stimulates the activity of internal organs.
The third stage of
Ayurvedic medicine, the third stage of pancakarma, is assigned to purgative enemas. They are doing the last three days together with external oilings, after taking a shower or bath.
For an enema, an Ayurvedic collection called dashmoula is taken. One spoonful of the vegetable mixture is poured with half a liter of boiling water and subjected to a boiling process for five minutes. The broth is cooled to 36 - 37 ºС, filtered and used for enema.
With a cotton constitution, the broth of dashmools is mixed with sesame warm oil( 150 ml).Instead of dashmoula, you can use a composition of fennel, aira and ginger, taken in the same amount. The broth should be in the intestinal environment as long as possible, preferably at least twenty minutes. The liquid may not go out or enter the intestinal tract. More often this picture is observed in people of cotton wool type, having a large intestine, which is often dry and dehydrated.
