Ayurvedic Treatment in Sydney for Respiratory Diseases

Breathe Easily

In our daily life, we often forget the most important factor of life is BREATH, life starts with the breath, and can’t survive for a minute without air.

According to many studies, it shows that more people die every year from respiratory issues than from car accidents. Air pollution affects our general health, especially in children, elderly people, and those with respiratory-related diseases.

What are the major causes of Respiratory disease?

◦ Air pollution

◦ Smoking tobacco

◦ Breathing in secondhand tobacco smoke

◦ Infection

◦ Radon,

◦ Asbestos, or other forms of air pollution.

 

Breathing polluted air will cause pollutants to get into our respiratory system and it will enter into our bloodstream and be carried to all of our internal organs including the brain. This will cause severe health-related issues such as Emphysema, Cardiovascular diseases, Chronic Bronchitis, more frequent or more severe asthma attacks, wheezing, coughing, and bronchial contraction, and even lung cancer and reduces the quality of life and lifespan. To increase the optimum level of energy received by nature, Proper breathing is very important, Also healthy breathing will also improve our blood circulation, immunity, and overall physical health.

How to Improve Breathing Air Quality in Indoors?

The air pollution indoors can be harmful as well. It could come from many sources. Passive cigarette smoke contains microparticles that can harm your lungs. Cooking gas ranges and other appliances also can cause harmful gases.

Pests and pets (such as cats, dogs, cockroaches, and mice) can shed substances, called allergens, that cause allergies. Dust and mold and dust mites also produce allergens. Even cleaning products like bleach, detergents, and other cleaning sprays can also cause harmful emulsions into the indoor air.

Over the last few years, researchers have found a lot about how our exposure to indoor air pollutants can contribute to many diseases. What precautions can we take? What prevention steps can help to reduce these exposures?

Many researchers are trying different ways to reduce harm from indoor air pollution. Use of air cleaners/air purifiers to improve the air quality especially for older people with conditions such as COPD. COPD is a condition that makes it hard to breathe and increases the risk of dangerous lung infections, like pneumonia. Much research has proven that improving air quality in indoor/home could also improve the health of kids with lung conditions.

The Outside Air

What we are gasping from the air is not in our control anymore. Today’s world’s atmospheric air is polluted with harmful gases like carbon monoxide (CO) from automobile emissions, fires, industrial processes, dust, and other impurities. Air pollution is one of the main causes of heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and acute respiratory infections in children. The respiratory system is mainly associated with the lungs, trachea, and nose. This is the organ for respiration. Respiration is gasping oxygenated air inside and exhaling carbonated air in the atmosphere. Oxygenated air mixed-up with blood and carried to each cell of our body.

Ayurvedic view of managing Respiratory diseases

According to Ayurveda, there are five elements that pervade the entire cosmos, the same with our bodies too. The elements are air, space, earth, water, and fire. Together they promote health and maintain the healthy balance of three doshas (Bodily Humor).

When these three doshas, turnout imbalance will result in many illnesses.

The Three Doshas in Ayurveda are-

• Vata (air and space)

• Pitta (fire and water)

• Kapha (earth and water)

Each body has a prime dosha, which is stronger than the other two. Individuals with strong pitta dosha have higher chances to get respiratory-related issues.

According to the Ayurvedic concept, treating respiratory disorders is focused on balancing doshas which includes daily exercises, following proper diet and lifestyle, Ayurvedic healing herbs, Panchakarma detox, and practicing yoga are also beneficial. Ayurveda has many safe medicines for long-term management of respiratory ailments and they are the first choice of management.

Ayurvedic Treatment Sydney

ayurveda-australia

“This holistic system of healing is very safe because it uses natural herbal ingredients and as a result, it is totally harmless and at the same time highly beneficial, effective, and curative.”

WHAT IS AYURVEDIC MEDICINE?

The ancient Indian medical system, also known as Ayurveda, is based on ancient writings that rely on a “natural” and holistic approach to physical and mental health. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems and remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. The ayurvedic treatment combines herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.

WHY CHOOSE AYURVEDA TREATMENT?

To make a diagnosis, the Ayurvedic practitioner at Ayur Healthcare will do disease analysis with a deep and detailed examination of each individual. This examination helps the Ayurvedic practitioner not only to diagnose the disorder but also to decide customized treatments for each patient.

At Ayur Healthcare the Ayurvedic practitioner will not just focus on treatment or medicine to heal the illness but also concentrates on the techniques that will strengthen the healthy elements inherent in the body, which will in turn help the individual to prevent diseases and to recover. Treatments and medicines are a vital part of this process, and it supports the body’s self-reparation.

According to Ayurveda, diseases are due to an imbalance of Vata, pitta, and Kapha dosha. Determining the individual’s predominant or aggravated dosha, and then identifying the root cause of a disease or imbalance of dosha, requires precise training. At Ayur Healthcare highly knowledgeable and well experienced Ayurvedic doctors will provide authentic Ayurveda treatment in Sydney.

TREATMENT PRINCIPLES IN AYUREVDA

Herbs and herbal formulas

This ancient practice is key to Ayurvedic medicine, which explains that the mode of action and effectiveness of every herb is determined by its virya (active principles), ras (taste), and vipak (post-digestive effect on the body). Thus the Ayurvedic administration of herbs is considered a precise science, requiring deep knowledge of plants and their effect on human physiology, biochemistry, and psychology.

Panchakarma detox at Ayur Healthcare

This complete detoxification regimen is thought to remove ama (toxin). The regimen includes massage, steam treatment, Vamana (induced vomiting), virechana (use of prescribed herbal and oil-based laxatives), and Basti (medicated enema), and Nasya (a nasal treatment). These treatments are followed by a strict dietary and herbal regimen, a rejuvenating therapy, and recommendations for daily routines.

Note: This invasive therapeutic procedure requires the supervision of a well-trained Ayurvedic practitioner.

AYURVEDA DIET AND NUTRITION

How does it work?

The Ayurvedic diet sets guidelines for when, how, and what you should eat based on your predominant dosha, or body constitution type.

According to this diet, your dosha determines which foods you should eat to get the inner balance of dosha. And this also involves eating or restricting certain foods based on your dosha, or body type.

For example, the pitta dosha focuses on cooling, energizing foods, and limits spices, hot and fermented food, nuts, and seeds.

Meanwhile, the Vata dosha favors Lukewarm, moist, nourishing, and grounding foods while restricting dried fruits, bitter herbs, and raw veggies.

The Kapha dosha limits heavy and cold foods like nuts, seeds, and oils in favor of light and easy fruits, veggies, and legumes.

Red meat, artificial sweeteners, fermented food, preservatives, and processed food items are limited or restricted for all three doshas.

The Ayurvedic diet is an eating pattern focused on promoting balance within your body by following guidelines for your specific dosha, or body type.

Ayurvedic diet and nutrition practices are vital to healthy living and are important components of treatment, recovery, and disease management. Dietary practices are customized to each individual’s constitution, with six primary “tastes” forming the basis for Ayurveda doctor’s recommendations:

Sweet: promotes strength and nourishes all tissues

Sour: stimulates digestive power

Salty: maintains water-electrolyte balance

Pungent: improves digestion and absorption

Bitter: stimulates all other tastes

Astringent: helps in absorption

The Ayurvedic diet has specific guidelines for each dosha, but in general, Ayurveda encourages eating whole foods like grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and legumes.

Ayurveda also recommends minimizes processed foods, which is unhealthy and often lack important vitamins, fibers, and minerals.

Eating higher amounts of processed foods may be associated with a higher risk of heart disease and cancer.

Thus, the Ayurvedic diet helps to prevent chronic disease and promote better health.

The Ayurvedic diet is a meal plan based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, a form of traditional medicine dating back thousands of years.

Ayurveda in Sydney

India’s traditional kind of medicine, Ayurveda is one in all the oldest healing systems on earth, with its adherents claiming that it provides the key to maintaining health and happiness throughout life. Meaning ‘life knowledge’, Ayurveda is mentioned in Hindu texts dating back over 5000 years and, like yoga and meditation, is very popular around the world.

Ayurveda in Sydney

Ayurveda considers the human body is made up of nature’s five basic elements i.e Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Each cell and molecule within the body have the composition formed out of those five basic elements. ‘Ayurveda is a holistic system that encompasses all aspects of the health of body, mind, and happiness.’ Ayurveda treats the root causative factors behind disease and imbalance of dosha and helps the body to heal itself.

According to Ayurvedic traditions, every human body has a unique combination of ‘doshas’ referred to as ‘Vata’, ‘pita’ and ‘Kapha’. These three functional energies help in designing the body frameworks both physically and mentally, saying that each individual is special in their own way. Your dosha corresponds to your physical and personality traits, but it’s not a case of “one size fits all”. Everyone encompasses a different combination of all three doshas, and customarily one or two are dominant.

Ayurveda in Sydney
Each dosha plays a very important role in our body’s physiology and it controls how our body works and eating right to maintain a healthy state of your dosha is very important.

Please remember as you are new to Ayurveda, you may find some of the recommendations difficult and not working as expected. Please feel free to ask us anything regarding your condition, treatment modalities, or doubts with relevant herbs. We are here to assist you. Finally, Ayurveda, the profound system of healthcare could be a wonderful journey to follow if you’re kind to yourself and provide enough time to regulate new routines.

Ayurveda Panchakarma in Sydney

Relaxation Massage Ayurveda

 

Panchkarma is the purification therapies of Ayurveda. ‘Panchkarma’ is derived from two words ‘Panch’ meaning ‘five’ and ‘karma’ meaning ‘actions’ so literally translated, as a set of five systematic actions for purification of the body. It brings the aggravated doshas into balance and thus flushes out the accumulated ama (toxins) from the body. It uses normal modes of elimination like intestines, sweat glands, and the urinary tract.

 

Why shall I do Panchakarma?

Elimination is a natural instinct of the human body but over a period of time, with our sedentary lifestyle the dosha gets imbalanced and wastes are not effectively eliminated from the body. Wastes thus tend to stick to the minute channels of the body known as the ‘srotas’ which produce disease. Panchkarma is one of the most radical ways to cleanse the body and eliminate the disease-causing amas (toxins).

 

Panchkarma is one of the cornerstones in Ayurvedic management of the disease. Panchkarma gets into the root cause of the problem and thus corrects the Tridoshic imbalance in the body. Panchkarma not only helps in alleviating disease and also a very useful tool in maintaining excellent health. Ayurveda is advised to undergo regular Panchkarma treatment according to seasonal changes to clean the body thus improving the digestion leading to improvement in metabolic processes.

Panchakarma Treatment

The age-old science consists of basically two main types of treatment which are as follows:

Shaman Chikitsa (treatment), subdue the vitiated Doshas, because of which ailments may be produced. It is administered by using various herbs or herbo-mineral medicinal preparation.

 

However, if Doshas vitiate or reach beyond a particular level, leading to various endotoxins, which have a tendency to accumulate in a minute to minute channels of the body. These are beyond the scope of pacification and thus have to be eliminated or thrown out from the body. In such cases, the second type of treatment, Shodhan Chikitsa/ cleansing therapy, is very beneficial. It consists of the five main types of therapies, so-known as Panchkarma Chikitsa. Panchkarma has a special place in all the ancient Ayurvedic texts.

Body Massage

Our body has its own wisdom for cleaning out the impurities, which are produced by physiological functions. However, there are some situations when this wisdom becomes impaired and does not perform its function properly, physicians have to help to re-establish this natural mechanism. Otherwise, all the impurities start to accumulate in the body, which damages the functions of srotas, which is the first stage of the disease, and finally, the whole system becomes susceptible to severe illness. Panchkarma helps in eliminating all impurities from the body and thus cleaning srotas, to prevent forthcoming disease.

 

It is obvious that the natural instinct for elimination is not only in human beings but also in all living creatures. For example, a dog when restless from indigestion goes to a special type of grass plant and eats it. It produces vomiting and gets rid of his indigestion. There is a type of seabird who has a long beak and takes water from the ocean in his mouth and pushes into his rectum, which acts as a saltwater enema. An historical bronze statue of such a bird taking an enema with his long beak can be seen putting their tongues up their nose, which is a cleansing program like a Sneha nasya because the ptyalin in the mouth is equal substance to Sneha (oily substance).

 

Body cells, which are functioning for twenty-four hours to produce energy, naturally know to clean their waste products. But the blocked srotas are not able to send off the waste materials.

 

Doshas – Vata, pitta, and Kapha always tend to travel from their basic location in the intestine to the tissues and get stuck there when channels are blocked. Panchkarma eliminates the doshas, cleans the blockage and improves transportation by which dosha comes back to their original places to perform normal functions

Body Massage in Parramatta

THE THREE STAGES OF PANCHAKARMA THERAPY

In Panchkarma The shodhana therapy is performed stages wise starting from -Purvakarma (pre-treatment), Pradhan Karma (primary treatment), and Paschatkarma (post-treatment). The patient who intends to undergo all three stages.

 

Snehana (oleation/oil therapy) and Swedana (sudation) are the two Purvakarma procedures. Snehana (internal oleation and external oleation) loosens the ama (toxins) stuck in various sites of the body and Swedana dilates the channels to facilitate its movement towards the alimentary canal. The ama (toxins) that reaches the alimentary canal is eliminated during the Panchkarma (primary treatment).

 

Diet regimens, restricted daily bodily exertion, and consumption of health-promoting drugs, etc. come under the Paschat Karma (post-treatment).

 

THESE SPECIALIZED PANCHAKARMA PROCEDURES CONSIST OF THE FOLLOWING:

Vaman (Emesis)

It is a process of elimination of toxins or wastes matters from the stomach and thoracic cavity or also called therapeutic vomiting is useful in Kapha dominant diseases like skin diseases (psoriasis, urticaria); bronchial asthma, etc.

 

Virechan (Purgation)

This eliminates the toxic or wastes matters from the stomach through the intestine. It also cures pitta or pitta-dominated diseases.

 

Basti (Enema)

The process of Basti which is therapeutic enema eliminates toxins from the colon, and also strengthens the tissues. Two kinds of Bastis are as follows: Sneha Basti is the Basti where medicated oils are used. Kashaya Basti includes honey, rock salt, Sneha (oils), and paste of medicines which are mixed one by one in the above order. This concoction is taken in an empty stomach. Medicines are selected as per disease and stage.

The Ayurveda approach to the changing seasons: Embrace the Flow with Ayurveda

Body Massage

As the season changes, there are plenty of things that changes accordingly, which show a high impact on human health. Understanding the qualities of each of these seasons can help you reduce any adverse effects. Remember that your predominant dosha increases during the season it governs, it is important to follow the body’s natural inclination to respond to the seasons by adapting our diet and activities. Depending on the immunity power an individual has, seasonal care is critical to avoid any health problems. The Vata season begins in autumn and continues until early winter and The Kapha season begins in late winter and continues until early spring and the pitta season is from late spring until the end of summer.

Importance of Ayurveda for Health care

Ayurveda is an age-old procedure of curing many health problems and is proven as one of the best holistic approaches to health care. Since Ayurvedic medicine involves only natural therapies, the majority of people are responding to it positively. Ayurveda focuses mainly on annual cyclic self-care and provides the best suitable therapies and medicine accordingly. And today, with continued development in treatments, Ayurveda is challenging modern science.

Green Leafy Vegetables

Today, the consciousness towards health care is making people focus more on seasonal Ayurvedic care to maintain a healthy life with assured and straightforward treatment in a natural way. Ayurveda helps us in making simple changes in daily food intake and activities that best suit the present season.

AYURVEDIC DOSHAS AND THE SEASONS

We generally think of the seasons as spring, summer, fall, and winter, however, Ayurveda teaches us that it’s not the calendar but Nature that determines which dosha will be influenced:

 Vata season is fall/autumn and early winter

 Pitta season is summer

 Kapha season is late winter and spring

Due to the changes in the seasons, the doshas go through the cycle of accumulation, aggravation, and pacification and this can have a big impact on our body and mind due to the Ayurvedic principle of ‘like increases like and opposites balance’.

Therefore, each person needs to be aware of which season has the same qualities as their predominant dosha. For example, a person who has a high Vata constitution will have a tendency to go out of balance in the Vata season of fall and early winter. During this time, this individual needs to be focused and disciplined in their nutrition and lifestyle in order to stay in balance.

How Ayurveda works

HOW THE LIFESTYLE MUST BE MODIFIED ACCORDING TO THE SEASONS IS EXPLAINED AS BELOW:

VATA SEASON

The Vata season is considered to fall during what most of us would know as Autumn and early Winter. When the weather is getting dryer, colder, windy, and harsh. The Vata season does tend to bring around changes to our health. The skin will start to feel tight and dry. Since this season is associated with wind practice of Agni Sara every day is the important Ayurvedic Vata seasonal care. Oiling the body with warm sesame oil is the best Ayurvedic practice to stay healthy and balanced in the Vata season. Apart from this, there are many vata-specifying diet and lifestyle changes that one needs to follow.

 Eat at regular intervals and don’t over-eat or forget to eat. Relax and spend time with your food.

 Practice daily relaxation methods such as yoga and mindfulness. Yoga postures that are particularly suited to Vata types are those which are more grounding and strengthening such as the corpse and lotus pose. Just remember to keep yourself wrapped up and warm!

 Keep yourself moisturized with warming, unctuous oils such as sesame, emphasize foods that are warm, soupy, heavy, and oily and increase your intake of natural oils. This can be in the form of oils used in cooking, but also oils found in nut milk for example.

 Favor foods that are sweet, sour, or salty as these will help increase heat and moisture.

 Reduce foods that are characteristically cold and dry, but also foods that are very spicy as the extreme heat can often upset the sensitive Vata digestion.

 Avoid refined foods, stimulants, and processed foods as these take more energy to break down, using precious heat reserves.

 The sudden change into long hours of darkness can also affect a vata’s already delicate sleeping patterns. Making a glass of hot, spicy milk with herbs such as cinnamon and nutmeg in the evenings can help to relax the mind before bed.

ayurvedic herbs

PITTA SEASON

Pitta is the season of hot summer composed of the fire element. It is said that when Pitta is balanced, one can stay energetic and joyful. So, to stay balanced with Pitta, it is always advisable in Ayurveda to Avoid foods that generate heat such as spicy, salty, and sour foods rather prefer foods with a sweet, bitter, and drying taste which are generally considered to be more cooling in their nature. In particular, the cooling qualities of cardamom, cilantro, coriander, fennel, and mint help to calm pitta’s heat.

MAKE TIME TO PRACTICE

Pitta types can become myopic and intense, so add a cooling breathing practice like sheetali pranayama to balance things out. Doing yoga poses like paschimotanasana and utthita parshvakonasana will dissipate the internal heat.

KAPHA SEASON

This season starts from the coldest part of winter into spring, and this season is dominated by earth and water elements. Kapha doshas control weight, growth, joints, and muscle strength. So, one needs to be very careful in maintaining Kapha because if it is imbalanced, then there are many health issues that one needs to suffer with.

Below are some general principles – aimed at reducing Kapha tendencies:

 Minimize cold, sweet, sour, salty or oily foods, and avoid cold drinks. Look for warm foods and drinks that are spicy, such as ginger, garlic, and onions; astringent, such as pulses and certain vegetables; and bitter, such as the dark leafy greens like kale and spinach. Try to minimize consumption of wheat and substitute with lighter grains such as quinoa, millet, and barley which are all Kapha reducing.

 Don’t sleep in too late (aim to be up before 7 am), and minimize daytime sleep which slows down metabolism, increasing Kapha.

 Exercise regularly to promote the movement of lymph, stimulate digestion, and enhance waste elimination. Exercising outdoors helps to reconnect with nature and promotes a healthy mind.

 Practice self-massage daily. In Ayurveda, a self-massage ritual known as ‘abhyanga’ can be performed every morning using warmed sesame oil, or our beautifully nourishing organic Sesame Oil. Abhyanga is a healing, soothing practice that nourishes your skin and stimulates waste elimination.

Building a Healthy Immune System with Ayurveda

Immunity

 

The holistic science Ayurveda for more than 5000 years has been helping people of all ages to overcome their illnesses. If you want to boost your immune system in a natural way, then Ayurveda is the right path for you.

 

According to Ayurveda, strong immunity is a product of good digestion, balanced Agni, quality liver functioning and a balanced endocrine system. In Ayurveda, the immune system is correlated to a vital substance called Ojas. Agni, the universal principle of transformation that manifests as the digestive fire, transforming food into bodily tissue and waste. Ayurveda kindles the Agni of the body to digest toxins (ama) which have manifested due to internal or external stresses. Ama, the digestive impurities caused by eating hard-to-digest foods or by following unhealthy eating habits, compromises immunity, and health.

Fruits

When the health of a man gets weaker, this is a sign that the Ojas energy in the body has decreased. When the Ojas level is low, people are vulnerable to various infections and illnesses. Having a wholesome diet and lifestyle that brings balance to individual needs can lead to a long and happy life. Ayurveda is not meant to be a rigid practice, but a foundation of healthy habits and practices that the mind and body can count on.

 

To understand the Ayurvedic approach to bolster the immune system we need to understand

What is Ojas?

Ojas is the positive subtle essence of Kapha dosha – which gives the body strength, vigor, vitality, and immunity. It is the superfine essence of all of the bodily tissues and the end product of perfect digestion, it is a direct reflection of the quality of Agni; strong Agni yields healthy Ojas, while impaired Agni hinders the quality of Ojas. It influences everything from our immunity, digestion, physical strength, and the health of our skin to our spiritual inclination, sleep, and mood.

Protection

Excellent ojas comes from a consistent seasonal practice that honors the Ayurvedic principles of good health and longevity. It comes from a commitment to consciousness, the right choices, and a balanced healthy lifestyle. We build our ojas by mindfully observing these practices.

Most of the people who come to Ayur Healthcare with mobility issues seek help for their joints. The issues can vary from rheumatoid arthritis to plain joint sprain from lifting heavy stuff. But when it is a senior person who comes to us with joint pains, we check to see if it is arthritis.

 

Arthritis involves inflammation and so it has to be determined. The proper diagnosis of joint pain is important. It is also necessary to understand which type of arthritis is that the patient has so that the treatment and course can be arrived at. Sometimes it can be hereditary arthritis or it can be the most common kind of arthritis – Osteoarthritis. It signifies degeneration of cartilages that form the covering of bones leading to painful rubbing of bones. It leads to swelling, pain, and immobility. Sometimes nerves are trapped between the joints and the pain can be severe.

 

Usually, this happens when one leg or arm is overused or if there is a previous history of injury that has been either treated or ignored. So, in such cases, this is not an issue that can be witnessed in other joints too. In elderly persons, especially if they are overweight, it is caused by giving preference to one or the other knees. It can also happen to professionals who spend a long time standing up and unknowingly support the weight of their body on one leg mostly.

 

In the case of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), the cases can be because of heredity. It is progressive and the individual will suffer on one or many joints as the body’s auto-immune leads it to attack the joints. It can involve swelling, redness, pain, and difficulty of movement as the pain can shift from one joint to another. 

Homeopathy

Fortunately, there are many treatments in Homeopathy that can be helpful. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent prolonged incapacity and many of the medicines available in Homeopathy can be exceptionally helpful.

Ayurvedic Concept with Management

Ayurveda is an ancient healing system based on wisdom tradition which originated in India over 5,000 years ago and focused on the balance of Body, Mind, and Consciousness. Ayurveda does not any identification anymore because it is rapidly spreading throughout the USA and European and Western Countries, the traditional western approach has generally prescribed substitution for the Hormone utilizing Hormone Replacement Therapy or Surgery. Since the approach has risks associated with the treatment plan itself, western medicine is looking to Ayurveda in Sydney and other natural systems with new hopes.

Ayurveda’s comprehensive understanding of Endocrinology applies a natural and holistic approach that may significantly help prevent and reduce hormonal challenges.
Its foundation is a ‘Tri-Dosha’ theory which views the individual’s constitution as a mixture of ‘Vata,’ ‘Pitta,’ and ‘Kapha,’ which are three distinct combinations of the universal five elements of wind, space, fire, water, and earth. A person’s unique combination of these elements and the effects of past lifestyle and dietary choices are considered when developing a personalized care program. However, since Ayurveda is a science of body, mind, and consciousness, it is not enough to merely focus on just physical symptoms and imbalances, mind and consciousness also play a major role, especially in endocrinology. Therefore, the Ayurvedic perspective is to explore and offer support for the healing of ‘Stuck Emotions,’ which directly and deeply impact on an individual’s overall health. In this way, Ayurveda goes well beyond the physical level when addressing hormonal imbalances.

‘PanchaKarma’ A gentle but deep Ayurvedic Cleansing Programme is the best treatment. PanchaKarama in Parramatta is an ancient Indian healing modality involving the successive application of medicated oils to the entire body for the purpose of penetrating the skin and removal of soluble toxins at the cellular levels. This treatment is generally is done on a daily basis for a period of 7 to 21 days, depending on the severity of the imbalance and whether it’s been a chronic condition. After the cleanse, since the cells are no longer coated with toxins, the cellular ‘fire’ and intelligence is improved and healthy functioning is restored at the deepest level. Treatment is done under careful supervision by our Ayurvedic Practitioner (Called Vaidya) in our Ayur health care.

As per our Ayurvedic Physicians, Shirodhara is another ancient tradition whereby warm oil is poured on the forehead area known as the ‘Third Eye,’ which is associated with the Pituitary and Pineal glands. It is a highly recommended treatment that is generally done as part of Panchakarma since it directly targets the central nervous system and associated Pineal and Pituitary glands.
