What is the Ayurvedic treatment known as Panchakarma?
In a new video about the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in Bad Ems, Germany, Dr. phil. Karin Pirc explains why Panchakarma, one of the central therapies of Maharishi Ayurveda* health care, is an effective treatment for detoxification and rejuvenation and why over 20,000 patients have enjoyed its benefits at her clinic alone.
Lothar Pirc, co-founder and managing director of the Bad Ems health centre, explained that Panchakarma is able to release toxins from the body in a permanent way, even stubborn toxins like free radicals.
Dr Karin Pirc spoke about how Panchakarma works. She said, 'If we want to explain it very simply, then the effectiveness of Panchakarma lies in a three-step process. . . . The first step involves loosening up the environmental toxins, metabolic residues, which have lodged themselves especially in the fat tissue. This is done by means of massages and through herbs and oils taken internally so that these toxins can be dislodged from the cells.'
The second step, Dr Pirc continued, involves moving these toxins which have now been loosened and transporting them through the body to be eliminated, through heat, steam baths, and warm local applications. The third step involves eliminating them from the body 'in a truly lasting way so the purification that has taken place is still noticeable even after many months'.
She added that Panchakarma depends on the self-healing power of the body and assists in restoring balance. Because the treatment is particularly effective at purifying and removing toxins, it is well suited to more modern health disorders caused by poor diet, environmental pollutants, and high stress.
In addition, the treatment plan is not 'one size fits all'. Instead it is tailored for each guest and their particular requirements and goals.
