Neurological issues can creep into our life due to various reasons. It can be a side effect of degenerative diseases, birth defects, accidents, genetic inclination, and other health issues. This issue stems from the non-functional cells in the brain as well as the loss of protective myelin sheath. This sheath acts as a barrier between outside trauma and the neurons while the nerve signal transfer is being completed. Although these losses at times can be irreparable, Panchakarma can avoid further degeneration while bringing back the lost nerve sensation.
Important Panchakarma Facts
Panchakarma comes with the prime objective to detoxify our body with use of a 5 fold technique which starts with Virechanam, followed by Vamanam, Sneha Vasti, Nasyam, and lastly Kashaya Vasti.
What is Poorvakarma?
Panchakarma believes in slow and steady relief to the body. Today, the modern medicines surely act fast to relieve the pain, but it does just that, nothing more. On the other hand, Panchakarma heals the body from inside while uprooting the cause in a steady fashion. Poorvakarma is essentially the preparation of the body for the treatment. Our neurological system is a sensitive engine that requires care and caution before opting for any treatment. Panchakarma acts as a holistic form of treatment free of any issues, degeneration, or side effects.
- Poorvakarma is generally followed by the massage or Abhyangam session that enhances the blood circulation to various parts of the body including the brain which helps mend any broken ends in the neurological chain system.
- Elakizhi is the next step to the Panchakarma therapy that is essentially a massage therapy for the body with an herbal paste that comes with healing properties.
- The next process of Podikizhi/steam bath helps the body absorb the healing effects of all the treatments provided above.
