Body Purification Therapy (Shodhan Chikitsa) - 15 Days


The theme of Ayurveda is to prevent health and cure of diseases from men. This process is to purify the whole body to attain proper balance of vatha, pitha and kapha based on the panchkarma and swethakarma treatments.

Panchakarma is the soul of ayurveda As the name suggests, Pancha in Sanskrit stands for Five and Karma are therapeutic measures thereby meaning five ways of body purification. These are undertaken for shodhan chikitsa - the purification of the body and mind, including the ten indriyas (sense and work organs) Ayurveda considers it necessary before the start of any other therapy. It is a 15 days programme comprises body massage, snehapanam, nasyam, virechanam (medicated purgative), snehavasthi, dhara, pizhichil, njavarakizhi, karnapooranam, tharpanam, sirovasthi, steam bath, Herbal drinks and internal herbal medicines.

Purification Therapies :
The panchakarma treatments assists the body to release and eradicate toxins completely and to rebalance the doshas that have gone out of balance due to the accretion of toxins and metabolic wastes.

The detoxification methods in ayurveda are known as 'SHODHANA'. This process comprises of five stages. They are
  • Snehana. (Internal and external administration of medicated fats)
  • Swedana (Perspiration)
  • Vamana (Emesis)
  • Virechana (Purgation)
  • Basthi. (Administration of liquid preparation with the help of a bladder)
Before starting with panchakarma, purvakarma (prekarma) are necessary. These include some medicines, snehana (oils and ghee), swedana (steam), etc. Snehana means the process which imparts softness and removes dryness of the body and is called Snehana. This is the first stage of detoxification. Medicated oils, ghee, animal fats and bone marrow were recommended for Snehana by ancient sages. Snehana is of two types.

  1. BAHYA SNEHANA (External application of oil)
  2. ABHYANTARA SNEHANA (Internal administration).

Importance of Snehana : - VAGHBATA has specified about the importance of Snehana as 'When we try to bend a dry stick, instead of bending it breaks. But when the same dry stick is seasoned with oil it bends easily'. The human body too responds likewise. Due to Snehana the vitiated Doshas, gets loosened and blocks Srotas (channels) and becomes soft and slippery.

Snehana is given to the patient for a period of five to ten days (as per the
person’s constitution and disease) early morning on an empty stomach. In the later part of the day, medicated oil is applied on the body and a proper massage is given. After massage, swedana (steam) of medicinal herbs is applied to the body so that the dosha is removed through the pores of the skin. Swedana means the process which makes the body to sweat is called 'Swedana'. This is the second stage of Panchakarma.

There are two major types of swedana.

1. Saagnisweda (Swedana conducted with the help of Agni or fire). This includes
  • Sankara sweda (Medicinal herbs are tied in a cloth and heated in a liquid medium. This is placed on the patient’s body)
  • Prasthaara sweda (Boiled or heated medicines are spread on a long rectangular stone slab and covered with cloth or big leaves. Patient is made to sleep on the application).
  • Naadi sweda (Helping the process of sweating by directing the vapors of herbal concoction towards a definite part of the body)
  • Baashpa sweda (Steam bath)
  • Parisheka sweda ( It is a thin stream of medicated liquid which is allowed to fall on the patient)
  • Avagaha sweda (Sleeping in a bath tub filled with medicated liquid).
  • Kuti sweda (Making the patient to sleep in a room where the walls are covered with medicinal pastes which are to be vaporized by heat from burning coals.)
2. Anaagni sweda (Swedana conducted without the help of fire).This includes
  • Vyaayaama (Physical Exercise)
  • Ushna sadana(A house in a very hot place)
  • Guru praavarana (Covering body with blankets)
  • Kshudha (Hunger)
  • Bahupaana (Consuming alcohol in excess )
  • Bhaya (Fear)
  • Krodha (Anger)
  • Upanaha (Applying thick medicinal packs )
  • Aahatah (Wrestling)
  • Aatapa (Exposure to early morning sun rays)
Importance of swedana : - The process of sweating removes Srotovarodha (obstructions in channels). Now the soft and loosened (by Snehana) vitiated Doshas move towards Koshta (stomach) through opened slippery channels.
