Panchkarm denotes five (panch) remedial therapies (karm) for the treatment of body from inside of any person , wheather he is healthy or unhealthy. This is a curative method for all diseases.
The three main biological components of the body are Vat, Kaff and Pitta according to Ayurved. Any imbalance in any of these components causes disorder in the body and man becomes ill. By applying Panchkarm therapy, the unwanted doshas are expelled from the body and the body gets purified.
Ayurveda: The name "Ayurveda" is made up of two words, ayur and veda referring to life and knowledge respectively. Together they mean "the science of life and longevity". Ayurveda deals with the mental, spiritual and physical body complex. More than the specific sickness it is the patient who is sought to be treated. Ayurveda is based on scientific principles of diagnosis and treatment. It differs from conventional medicine in the basic principles of investigation and assigning causes to processes rather than specific areas of physiology.
