Panchakarma Right for You?
come to Panchakarma for a variety of reasons,
but with a shared desire to increase health,
vitality and energy. To experience a calm mind
and balanced nervous system and to have an inner
sense of well being, that feeling of being truly
comfortable in our own body.
is appropriate for almost everyone except young
children and those of advanced years. There
are specific contraindications for Panchakarma.
are very careful at Living Ayurveda to insure
that Panchakarma is an appropriate treatment
for you and your present level of health.
people are basically healthy, yet have a specific
health concern. It may be as simple as the need
to pause and renew due to a hectic life. It may
be the desire to insure that a genetic family
health trait is kept in check so as not to develop.
Perhaps there have been issues and challenges
around pregnancy. Panchakarma is an opportunity
to unwind and release long held toxins, worries
and memories. It is a time for you to create
optimal good health in all areas. A time to reflect
on life and determine if the life you are living
is truly good for you, and if it is not, a time
to change your direction to one more positive.
come to Panchakarma as the result of chronic
disease and seek to stop the downward spiral
of health. Addressing chronic or vague health
issues or those difficult to diagnosis is one
of Ayurveda’s strong suites. At some point
people recognize that there are consequences
to a lifetime of choices that are cumulatively
creating a negative impact to their health. Poor
diet, over exertion, smoking, drugs, alcohol
and unhealthy relationships take a toll on our
health. Panchakarma is a powerful yet kind and
gentle way to remove these toxic accumulations
and to begin to regain your health, your prosperity
and your life.
physical, mental and emotional environments have
changed dramatically in the past 70 years,
more change has occurred on the planet in this
time than the total change in all of time before.
The introduction of new synthetic chemicals and
electromagnetic influences from the impressive
array of communication technologies are only
two examples of recently invented outside influences.
These outside influences combined with the pace
at which we live, and the not so positive lifestyle
choices we sometimes make, have created an unprecedented
burden on the body. The human body is an amazing,
evolving organism, but it simply does not have
the capacity to adequately adapt to maintain
in the face of these radical environmental changes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
and the World Health Organization, both very conservative
health agencies, report that 85% of all diseases
are the result of environmental exposure. More
than 86,000 new chemical compounds are been created
since Word War II. Less than 1% have been tested
for impact to human safety. These chemical assaults
are in our food, water and air. They are in our
clothes, our homes and workplace.
It is mind boggling to realize that the very first
television broadcast originated from Nazi Germany
only 70 years ago. Today we are bombarded continuously
with multiple forms of electromagnetic communication
signals; cell phones, radio, microwaves and more.
hard to believe, given the pace that we now live,
but the concept of “being on time” did
not exist 80 years ago prior to the industrial
revolution and modern manufacturing coming into
being. We are pushed everyday to make every minute
count. Consultants charge for the services by the
minute, we pay for parking by the minute, and even
our news is “up to the minute”. It
is little wonder that we collapse into bed at night.
there is the impact of our personal choices.
The small choices that we make everyday in regards
to diet, nutrition, exercise and even relationships,
make a big impact on determining our level of health
and disease. As a society we are living longer,
yet very few of us reach our senior years disease
free. There are a number of diseases and disease
processes with non-specific causes; cancer, chronic
fatigue, arthritis, osteoporosis, essential tremor,
various auto-immune diseases and the list continues
to grow. What is the value in living longer if
to only suffer poor health? And to be a burden?
These small choices we make everyday are similar
to a snowball rolling down hill picking up “flakes” of
Education is a central component of care at Living
Ayurveda. By being actively involved with every
aspect of your care, we are able to spend more
time with you, learn more about you, your life,
and how you live. We can then provide education
that is in alignment with your life and your constitution,
to help you make better day-to-day choices. You
begin to understand how you can exchange foods,
activities and ways of thinking that do not match
who you are for ones that truly support you and
begin to stop the formation of this toxic snowball.
The good news, Panchakarma is as effective today
as it was 5000 years ago. Panchakarma can counter
these many challenges and be an invaluable aid
in keeping us strong, vital and healthy. Panchakarma
offers a systemic treatment that cleans and balances
every cell in our bodies. Given the proper nutrition
and removal of blockages and toxins, the human
body will right itself and steer a course to good
