The seventh day is dedicated to eliminating the toxins from the body. In Panchakarma, there are five ways to filter the : taking medicine by mouth (Vamana), colon cleansing (Vicherana), enema (Vasti), nasal procedures (Nasya), and blood cleansing (Raktamokshana), which is rarely used. Most likely, Vasti and Vamana would be enough. The final choice is up to Shailesh.
But don't think that Panchakarma is a detox treatment. In fact, this is more about rejuvenating the body at the cellular level. Shailesh explains: Detox is a trendy word. Panchakarma aims at solving an extended range of issues, not limited to the pulling the toxins out of the body. It's about preventive medicine, and the main goal is to avoid sickness. Yet in practice, we first need to fix the organs that are most vulnerable. The begins by bringing the body to balance. In Ayurveda, which is older than 4,000 years, there are two types of therapy: Shodhana and Shamana. Shamana aims at solving an existent problem, stabilizing and controlling the situation.
And Shodhana addresses the root cause of the problem. It allows one to forget about diseases. To do that, you would need to rejuvenate the physical and mental body with the help of Ayurveda, and then undergo the supporting course once a year. If a person is healthy, we show the path to self-development.However, if health conditions are present, we attend to that first, says Dr. Shailesh. He adds: the minimum duration of the course is 14 days, and you can engage in self-improvement program for as long as three weeks. Shailesh decides the duration. One month ago, a woman decided to dedicate 21 days to a thorough cleanup. The remaining time you should devote to enjoying the sun and the sea.
It also matters how you finish the program. The central rule: after the course is completed, you should stick to the moderately strict regimen for the duration of the program. Two weeks of the course would mean that you should stay vegan for another two weeks. Again, no one will watch you, but it's only in your interest to maintain the positive effect of the program. You don't need to run towards a coffee machine for a powerful ristretto. The body will not approve. You will not long for a coffee after the course anyway. — ELITE
