To achieve a balanced state of body, mind and consciousness, Ayurveda treatments prescribe a cleansing Panchakarma Treatment to eliminate body toxins. The Ayurvedic medicine in India practised Panchakarma treatments since pre-historic times. Panchakarma treatments, which include five major procedures, are meant to purify the whole body by eliminating the accumulated toxins from it. The five major Ayurveda treatment procedures are Vamana (Emesis), Virechana (Purgation), Snehavasthi (Medicated Oil Enema), Kashayavasti (medicated decoction enema) & Nasya (Nasal Administration). These five Panchakarma treatment procedures are undertaken for the purification of the body channels and Ayurveda considers it necessary before the start of any other Ayurveda treatments to get an effective result. This Ayurveda treatment can be administered both to a healthy as well as the diseased person. When a healthy person subjects himself to Panchakarma treatment, it has a preventive, rejuvenative and restorative effect on the body. The Kerala Ayurvedic treatment like pizhichil and shirodhara complements the Panchakarma treatment processes .The practitioners of Ayurveda in Kerala has a long standing expertise in the field of Panchakarma treatment procedures.
