The five procedures which are predominantly used for the detoxification are collectively called as Panchkarma.
Panchkarma = Panch (Five) + Karma(Proceure)
We can treat almost all diseases with the help of Panchkarma but Panchkarma can also help us to prevent diseases by detoxifying our body with maintaining ‘samyak doshasthiti.’ This miraculous characteristic feature makes Panchkarma a most unique, reliable & effective treatment procedure. Even each and every person who is healthy or ill should undergo Panchkarma treatment every year as per the appropriate season and with the doctors advice to maintain his mental and physical health. Details of Panchkarma are as follows.
It is the science which explains about life. It is not just a medical science but a science of life. It is a Devine science which explains how to live and enjoy healthy life.

Our organ-system is govern and maintained by these tridoshas when they are in a sound condition but when these doshas get disturbed then we fall ill. As for each and every disease through which we suffer doshas are responsible. It is necessary to maintain the definite concentration & position of doshas.
