The Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies: Based on the Timeless Wisdom of India's 5,000-Year-Old Medical System by Vasant Lad

According to Ayurveda as practiced in India, the Five Actions are:

1. V
amana (medical vomiting) to remove Kapha Dosha  (No longer practiced, replaced with massage and other therapies)

2. Virechana (medical purgation) for Pitta Dosha*

3. Abhyanga (self-massage)*

4. Basti (herbal enema)*

5. Rakta Moksha (bloodletting) (No longer practiced due to the risk of infection.)

According to Ayurveda, seasonal change is a good time for cleansing/Panchkarma.
If you can't afford to visit a Panchakarma clinic, one can still do it on their own.
If you have never done this before please discuss with your Ayurvedic practitioner or research the literature in books or online for information available on cleansing at home.

Even though our body has the innate ability and intelligence to process and remove accumulated toxins (Ama) and thus align all 3 Doshas (constitution). Unfortunately, our regular repeated violations on our bodies, e.g. irregular eating habits, eating on the run, everyday stress, lack of exercise or over exercise al deplete the body’s natural intelligence, thus aggravating the Doshas. Panchakarma helps restore balance and harmony to our system.

Please start slowly for 1 or 2 days. Do not forget that this is an immersive experience - meditate, rest, eat lightly, light reading, turn off your phone & computer. Plan to get away from distractions and obligations.  According to Dr. Lad, “Panchakarma releases old, unresolved emotions. To cope,” he says “avoid the urge to re-suppress them and practice regular meditation to soothe your heart and soul.” 

To get the most from your Panchakarma cleansing eat only kitchari for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. https://yogainternational.com/article/view/basic-kichari

Swooshing Oil *Virechana 

Oil pulling, also known as "kavala" or "gundusha," is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique that involves swooshing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 20 minutes. This action supposedly draws out toxins in your body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health.
