‘SwaSwara’s Ayurveda Detox and Panchakarma’ programme starts at 14 nights only. After a detailed consultation with their Ayurveda doctor and prior to starting the therapeutic external body treatments, this intense, holistic programme begins with the Ayurvedic detox procedure of ingesting medicated ghee for a few nights (Snehapana), followed by a day of purging (Virechana) to cleanse & eliminate the accumulated toxins out of the body.
During this programme each individual is put on a personalised, Dosha-specific diet which will be strictly as prescribed by the doctor. On the Ayurveda doctor’s advice, up to two treatments will be offered on a daily basis, supplemented by light yoga and meditation sessions. During their stay guests are encouraged to use the in house Art & Pottery studio and take part in the interactive cooking sessions too to learn Ayurvedic cooking. Due to the intense & curative nature of this programme, all physical & outdoor activities including Yoga will be subject to the Ayurveda doctor’s advice & approval only.
‘Panchkarma’ which literally means five fold method, is essentially about intense purification of the body and requires a minimum stay of 21 nights. The Panchakarma is the intensive cleansing treatment which follows the early texts of Ayurveda like Charaka Samhita. The five actions of Panchakarma according to Charaka Samhitha are Vamana (induced vomiting), Virechana (purgation), Kashaya Vasti and Sneha Vasti (two kinds of medicated enemas) and Nasya (nasal medication). It is always preceded by the preparatory process called Purvakarma or Snehapana & Virechana.
The third and final stage of treatment is ‘Samana’ or ‘Paschatkarma’ where the patient undergoes corrective measures through internal medicines, therapeutic body treatments, supplemented by an appropriate Dosha specific diet and gentle healing activities for the body & mind. On completion of this course of treatment, the imbalances of the Doshas which is what leads to diseases in the body get stabilised and are brought to equilibrium.
