Nasya is used classically for allergies, snoring, sinusitis, tinnitus, sleep apnea and headaches. It is a valuable aid for increasing mental focus.
- What is Panchakarma
- Pancha Karma (Panchakarma) is the Ayurvedic art of detoxification, purification, and rejuvenation.It is a powerful way to address the root cause of disease and has been used for thousands of years as a method for staying healthy, young, and vital.
Panchakarma is the single most powerful healing process utilized in Ayurvedic medicine. It is utilized for the purpose of eliminating ama (toxins) and excess doshas (vital energies) from the body and mind in order to prevent and reverse disease. Ama and excess dosha can lead to disease, and by their removal, health is optimized. The strength of the body and mind is then gently restored to prevent future states of imbalance. Therapies range from 3 to 30 days.
A complete evaluation is prerequisite to panchakarma. After a complete evaluation, a personalized treatment plan is designed to address your unique constitution and imbalances. You and your practitioner will discuss if panchakarma is indicated and if it is, how many days of treatment would be most appropriate for you.
