Ayurvedic treatments are broadly classified into Sodhana (purification) and Samana (pacification). Sodhana is the process of detoxification of the body, commonly coming under the treatment group – Panchakarmas. It is a purification therapy comprising of five treatment modalities intended to correct the Tridoshas (Vata, Pitha, Kapha) and maintain an equilibrium of the functional factors of the human body. It essentially assists in removing the root causes of numerous diseases from our bodies.
We employ these procedures for prevention as well as cure. It comprises of Vamana (Emesis), Virechana (Purgation), Asthapana (Enema with medicinal decoctions), Anuvasanam (enema with medicated oil) and Nasyam (administration of medicines through nostrils.)
Oleation (snehanam) and fomentation (swedanam) are among the preparatory steps (poorvakarma) of Panchakarma treatment. The preparatory process enhances the physical and mental well-being eradicating disease whilst purifying the blood and prepares the body to reap the benefits of Panchakarmas therapy.
