Elimination of Stress through Self-Rejuvenation
We have all heard that “prevention is better than cure”. This is especially true when it comes to prevention of stress. Stress can have a detrimental effect on our health. It can manifest itself in a variety of ways, such as anxiety, depression, irritability, and insomnia. There are several things we can do to eliminate stress from our lives. One of the most effective methods is to rejuvenate ourselves, both physically and mentally. This can be done through activities such as exercise, meditation, and yoga. Exercise releases endorphins, which have a positive effect on our mood. Meditation helps clear and calm our minds and allows us to focus on the present moment. Yoga helps to improve our flexibility and strength, and also has a calming effect on our mind.

By taking some time out for ourselves to rejuvenate, we can effectively reduce the amount of stress in our lives. This will lead to improved mind and body health and give you a sense of overall well-being. Stress has been linked to various health problems, including heart disease, and high blood pressure. Ayurvedic treatment is a form of alternative medicine that is based on the principle of balance in the body, and helps manage stress and has incredible benefits on overall health.
What is Panchakarma?
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit word, meaning “five actions” or “five treatments“. It is a comprehensive Ayurvedic medicine system used to cleanse the body and mind of toxins. The five treatments are Abhyanga (oil massage), Swedana (steam therapy), Shirodhara (oil pouring), Nasya (nasal therapy), and Basti (herbal therapy).
The first step involves the intake of a herbal decoction. The herbs used for this process are Triphala, Amlavetasa, Punarnava, Vacha, and Manohara. The second step involves the application of medicated oil on the forehead and back. The third step is a process that uses ghee. Ghee is heated and rubbed onto the lash line of the eyes and the chest. This helps in strengthening the immunity of the body. The fourth step involves a process where the intake of another special herbal decoction helps to eliminate ‘ama’ from the body. The fifth step uses yet another special decoction to wash the stomach and intestines out. This process is called the Panchakarma Virechana.
Panchakarma is said to be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, chronic fatigue, depression, digestive disorders, headaches, insomnia, and stress. It is also said to boost immunity, improve circulation, and promote detoxification and rejuvenation.
