Panchakarma is the classic purification and detoxification treatment in Ayurveda. This therapy is designed to eliminate the toxins accumulated in the body and purify it. Though highly effective and powerful, this exotic therapeutic process is rather simple in its application. This treatment can be administered to both healthy and an ailing person, because it provides both restorative and curative benefits. The Panchakarma treatment procedure speeds up the metabolism, purifies the blood, as well as rejuvenates the body and mind.
