Treatments

(Therapies)

Similar to all treatments, in the Panchakarma process there is a need to prepare our body for the main treatment of the actual toxin release and purification process. Success of a prescribed therapy is highly dependent on pre-purification, making preparation the most important step in the whole therapy. In our Ayurveda Detox Center Glavini we mainly use one of three major Ayurvedic detox methods: Basti or enema, Virechan or purgation, and Nasya or elimination of toxins through the nose (nasal administration).

Purvakarma

How to prepare your body for a detox

Two to three days prior to the Panchakarma, make sure you eat light, liquid, well cooked meals such as soups, stocks and stews seasoned with cumin, ginger, curcumin (turmeric), cayenne pepper and black pepper. Avoid red meat and hard to digest food. All kind of fats, oils, hard cheese, butter, milk, wheat, rice, sugar, meat and fish should be consumed in moderation.

Snehapana

Oiling (Oleation)
Snehapana Antiage
Snehapana or oiling is a major preparatory treatment performed before the actual purification process can start. Oiling can be administered internally (as oral consumption of ghee) and externally (as abhyanga massage).

The primary aim of internal oiling is to make sure that once the body is saturated with fat, toxins and heavy metals are “melted” and expelled into digestive system from where all toxins will be flushed out during the cleansing process.

Abhyanga

Massage
Abhyanga Antiage
External oiling works in a similar way but through a relaxing massage called abyhanga. Warm, high quality ayurvedic herbal oil (made up of over 40 different plants) is applied on the entire body, pulling toxins out through the skin and other tissues, reaching lymphatic system and blood stream through the pores, and circulating the body, binding the toxins and placing them into digestive system, from where they will be easily eliminated from the body through cleansing or sweating.

Paschatkarma

Procedures following the Panchakarma – detox (Post cleansing treatments)

Paschatkarma is of utmost importance for the whole detox process. Metabolic fire, GI tract and physical stamina, are very week and slow due to purging process, and therefore require gradual strengthening and recovery. Otherwise, the food will not digest well and toxins could accumulate again, decreasing or canceling any benefits of Panchakarma. You should follow special dietary plan for next two to three days in order to strengthen your metabolic fire and metabolism. You will receive all necessary guidance and tools on what, how and when to eat, based on your unique constitution.
