Shreshtha Ayurveda | Panchakarma treatments

What is Panchakarma?

Panchakarma is Ayurvedic therapeutic and curative treatment method. This treatment protocol is useful for detoxification and correction which helps to address the disease condition from the root.

This comprises of 5 kinds of treatment, Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya and Raktamokshan.


Panchakarma is extremely beneficial in chronic ailments and immunity related disorders. These therapies target toxins that cause deep-seated illness, while balancing the Tridoshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha).

The Panchakarma therapies are scientifically proven to eliminate several dangerous toxins.

It has been scientifically proven that natural purification treatments can successfully eliminate environmentally toxic substances such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB's) and pesticides from our body, without damaging it or causing side effects.

A study at the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa in collaboration with a special laboratory at Colorado University demonstrated that classical Panchakarma Treatment eliminated up to 50% of the detectable toxins in the blood.
