Phases of Panchakarma​

Purvakarma-the pre-purification preparation

Before the detoxification programs begin, there is a need to prepare the body in prescribed method to encourage it to release the toxins. These procedures are used for this:

Deepna and Pachana

At first, patient is administered with medicine such as Trikatu Choorna, Chitrakadi Vati etc. for a period of 3 days. This is to boost digestion strength and to relieve Ama (product of indigestion).


Once good digestion strength is established, person is given with ghee/oil etc, fat to drink for 3 to 7 days, based on digestion strength. Snehana/Oleation means, administering a person with any kind of fat – may be herbal ghee, herbal oil or animal fat. Oleation helps to mobilize the Doshas from the disease places in the body. Hence, it is considered as the important preparation step for Panchakarma.


Swedana means sweating or sweating therapy. The patient is made to sweat on purpose. Usually this procedure is done after doing the oleation therapy (Snehakarma)
