Hemadri Ayurveda Centre - Rishikesh

In Ayur-Veda health care, prevention of illness and disease is of primary importance, as in the East - good health and a long life is valued as an important part of life itself. In the West - good health is taken for granted and it is only when illness or medical problems present themselves that the patient will go to a doctor to diagnose the problem and then treat the condition. Consequently in Ayur -Veda treatment takes place much earlier than in the West, even before the symptoms present themselves where diagnosis made by pulse examination.
The Ayur-Vedic focus is on maintaining good health hence preventing illness and early detection of the problems, which left untreated, may present themselves in the form of an illness or disease. Early detection brings great benefits to the severity of the illness and its subsequent cure.

Additional Information

Panchakarma term is made up by two words, Panch means five and karma means procedure or action – so Panchakarma is five different types of procedure/action to clean/detoxify the body or procedure for balancing the five elements which is Aakash, Vayu, Agni, Jala and Prithvi Mahabhuta/tattva is called Panchakarma. The term Panchakarma refers to the five principal practices used to cleanse the body of its excess bodily humours called Doshas. According to Charaka (Maharishi who first recorded and re-evaluated the Ayurvedic texts called Charaka samhita) introduced these cleansing practices as the axis around which all Ayurvedic healing therapies revolve, defining it as the one primary independent discipline to be employed in order to promote health.
Charaka considerd it a requisite procedure before surgical operations or the administration of any of the rejuvenation therapies. Panchakarma benefits both the healthy and the unhealthy and is considered to be most effective therapy for preventing and curing diseases, as well as for revitalizing the entire human organism. According to Sushrut – Maharishi who invented surgery and now who is called father of surgery- recommended Panchakarma before surgery and after surgery to protect health and prevents surgery in future.
Panchakarma is a process for removal of waste products and toxic substances, which are deposited at weak points in the our body on a regular basis due to seasonal changes, air pollution, water pollution, sound pollution, light pollution, food alterations or impurities, over eating and also by the stress and tensions of daily abnormal lifestyle. The system of Medicine that is said to have been revealed to the people by God himself. That is named Ayurveda (the science of life), wherein are laid down the good and bad of life, the happy and unhappy of life and what is wholesome in relation to life,as also the span of life” - Charaka Samhita .
Ayurveda is a holistic, ancient , time tested and traditional system of medicine that is indigeous to and widely practiced in India. The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning “science of life”. Ayu means “life” or “daily living” and the word “veda” is “knowing”. Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas – the ancient texts of the Himalayan sages. The world’s oldest existant literature .
The Ayurvedic healing system has been practiced in daily life in India for more then 5000 years. All Ayurveda literature is based on the Samkhya philosophy of creation. (The root of term Samkhya: Sat, means “true” and khya, means “to know”)The Vedas, made up of the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva Vedas in which the ancient scriptural knowledge is found, have been handed down to us generation by generation over several thousand years of oral tradition, before finally being recorded in written form.
It was not until about 500 B.C. that the sage Adi Sankara culled the end portion of vedas, called vedanta, which reveals the knowledge that the self and the supreme being are one. Sankara recorded this knowledge on palm leaves. Rig veda, the foundation pillar and oldest of the vedas, contains many references to Ayurvedic principles, although Ayurveda itself was primarily developed from the Atherva Veda, the most recent of the Vedas. The mainstay of Ayurvedic knowledge we have today is found in two treatise, Charak Samhita and Sushrut Samhita, each of which first appeared at the turn of the first millenium B.C.
The main objective of Ayurveda is to impart health-full longevity and to relieve human suffering. This is achieved through appropriate regimes of Ahara, Vihara, and Ausadhis and systemic Samshodhana {detoxification} of the body.


VAMAN KARMA (therapeutic vomiting).It is an uniue procedure of eliminating the dosha from the body through oral route, inducing vomiting. It is very effective for Kapha dosha elimination. Forceful expulsion of undigested pitta and kapha through upper (oral) route is known as Vamana. Snehana (oil massage externally and internal – ghee orally), Swedana (heat treatments) fallowed by induction of vomiting and subjected to Sansarjana karma (diet plan); these whole procedure is called Vamana karma. It is not only stomach washing, it is whole body cleansing process and totally different from Kunjal kriya in yoga.
Virechana is most effective therapy of Pitta (fire) related disorders. It is not only intestinal cleansing while it is whole body cleansing by creating medicated diarrhoea. It eliminates all toxins & waste products through anus. The five procedures of panchakarma for balancing the vata, pitta, kapha & five element i.e. space, air, fire, water & earth also. These procedures are Vamana karma, Virechana karma, Basti karma, Nasya karma & Rakta mokshan karma. Continuous pouring of decoction, oil, or other herbal liquid on the forehead and then allowing to it to flow over to scalp, using a special instrument known as Shirah seka, this is popularly known as Shirodhara. Here pouring of oil is not following by any massage. 
Depending upon the Prakruti of a person, when oil is used in Abhayaga, it supports the maintenance of excellence of body tissues. Hence is recommended in normal person for routine practice. Further when the oil is selected according to the illness of diseased, it cures the disease & also a method of drug administration. Induction of sweating for therapeutic purpose is referred by the name of swedana in Ayurveda. This may be used either for promotion of health or for promotion of health or for curing the illness. By definition the procedure that alleviates the stiffness of the body, relieves sense of heaviness, and cures feeling of cold is called Swedana.
These effects are achieved by increasing the natural process of perspiration. Sweat is a form of waste. According to ayurveda,sweat is produced during the metabolism of medas vis-à-vis adipose tissue, and this sweat has considerable role in maintenance of proper balance of body fluids. The process of sweating also involves eliminations of waste and toxins from the body. These natural functions of the sweat are utilized for the therapeutic purpose in the swedana procedure. Swedan is a form of treatment, employed to cure specific disease or to relieve symptoms like pain, stuffiness or contracture that may manifest as a symptom in different diseased conditions. 
The simple procedure of massaging the whole body below the neck with oil or powder of herbs in the direction opposite to the orientation of hairs in the body is called as Udavartana. Unique procedure of application of the sneha (medicated ghee) to the eyes is called Akshi-tarpana. This procedure is usefull in healthy as well as diseased person. In healthy person akshi tapana is carried out to protect the eyes from degeneration due to aging process and to improve the eyesight.
Therapeutic effect is advocated in clients suffering from disease of eye. Eye is considered to be local route of drug administration. Thus Akshi-tarpana gives desired results in clients suffering from eye diseases. The procedure of applying heat to the sacral or lumber region by retaining warm medicated oils, which is in a specially formed on that area, is popularly known by the name KATI BASTI. The term basti here is a misnomer. Basti generally refers to the administration of medicine through the rectal route by using the specially designed basti instrument.
However, the Kati basti does not involve any such procedure rather this is a localized form of swedana procedure. As warm oil is used to apply heat, this is considered as a variety of snigdha sweda . Quite similar to Kati Basti, the procedure of applying heat to the cervical region by retaining warm medicated oil with a specially formed frame on this area known by the name Griva Basti.
