Detoxification Plan For Dysentery (Panchkarma)

Panchkarma permanently dispenses with these toxins (ama) from the body that cause illness are weighty and sticky, dwelling in the deepest tissue layers, permitting healing and rebuilding of the tissues, channels, assimilation, and mental capabilities.


The name Panchkarma signifies “Five Actions” , which is appropriate given that this technique depends upon five basic activities that control the body: Vamana, Virechan, Basti, Nasyam and Raktamokshana.

Virechan is the sedated purgation treatment that scrubs the body from the Pitta Dosha and eliminates toxins from the gastrointestinal tract, liver, and nerve bladder. 


Sneha Basti(Anuvasan) and Niruha Basti (Aasthaapana Basti) are useful for many disorders, including chronic constipation, dysentery, sciatica, lower back pain, arthritis, gout, and rheumatism. 


Ayushakti’s detoxification Panchkarma treatments are highly focused on relieving the root cause of any chronic problem by cleansing, repairing and rejuvenating the deeper tissues and cells in your body.  Click here to check out our Panchkarma Detoxification Plan
