Ayurvedic food

The Ayurveda diet originates in India and aims to promote longevity, vitality, physical, mental and emotional health. As part of the diagnostic consultation, foods to avoid and consume are defined.

AYURVEDA DETOX TREATMENT

Ayurveda presents ancient practices of Indian medicine for a life with more  health and well-being. After all, it focuses on the search for balance between body, soul and spirit. Among the Ayurvedic procedures is Panchakarma – a process that helps detoxify and purge the body of toxins and align the aggravated doshas.
This procedure aims to restore the normal functioning of the doshas, the organism and the mind and agni, and, for that, it uses adequate nutritional and therapeutic resources.
Before starting and proceeding, a detailed analysis and examination of the patient will be carried out, always with the follow-up and help of an Ayurvedic doctor or qualified senior therapist.

WHO CAN ENJOY PANCHAKARMA

Given the hustle and bustle in which we all live, the accumulation of toxins is not only present on a physical level but also on an emotional level. It is necessary to take this aspect into account because a healthy body only proliferates through a healthy mind.

Practically everyone can benefit from a panchakarma – detox procedure, because the body is constantly producing toxins, hence it is extremely important to cleanse and detoxify the body regularly.

 

Here are the signs to know if you need a detox:

  • Aggravated signs of stress;

  • Anxiety;

  • Insomnia;

  • A thick layer of coating on the tongue; 

  • Feeling tired throughout the day, especially after meals; 

  • Body aches and pains; 

  • Uncontrollable cravings; 

  • Cloudy mind; 

  • Bad breath, body odor or flatulence; 

  • Oconstipation or diarrhea.


The purpose of Panchakarma is sodhana (purification). If an illness is treated with the sodhana approach, it does not recur. So panchakarma sodhana is the best way to heal and rebalance the body.

PRECAUTIONS

Certain Panchakarma procedures are not suitable for certain health conditions and some procedures should not be performed on children, pregnant women and the elderly.
However, if this procedure is not possible, an adequate program of rejuvenation - Rasayana, smoother and less profound, may take place, depending on the patient's condition.
Panchakarma treatments should only be performed by qualified and experienced Ayurvedic practitioners.

SIDE EFFECTS OF PANCHAKARMA

HOW IS IT PROCESSED

Common side effects of Panchakarma include fatigue, malaise, headaches, congestion and general illness. An initial increase in symptoms can also occur as a side effect.
Treatment should be carried out at a time of less activity, whether physical or mental.
It is also important to note that as Panchakarma seeks to release stored emotional issues, some patients may experience emotional disturbances during treatment.

The three phases of Panchakarma:


1- Purvakarma
It involves oiling and sweating. At this stage, a dietetic and phytotherapic preparation is made using herbs and the proper diet. In addition to the consumption of ghee butter and other recommended oils. Finally, sweating consists of an application of steam for external heat, after receiving a massage with oils.

 

2- The application of Panchakarma
Five techniques make up this phase: emesis, purging, enema, intranasal applications of herbs and oils, and blood purification. Always accompanied by an Ayurvedic doctor, it involves the elimination of existing aggravated doshas in the channels or tissues. This treatment aims to purify the body and mind, through a set of five detoxification techniques. Each procedure is suited to a specific imbalance of each dosha and the Ama (toxins) resulting from that imbalance.


Vamana– or therapeutic vomiting technique, indicated to eliminate excess Kapha, which favors the accumulation of mucus in the body (stomach and lungs), in order to eliminate allergies, asthma, bronchitis, thyroid problems, obesity, cholesterol, among others;


Virechana– or therapeutic diarrhea technique, indicated to eliminate excess Pitta in the body, namely, in the liver, spleen, pancreas, small intestine and kidneys in order to eliminate pathologies such as skin problems, fevers, diabetes, anemia, headaches, migraines , chronic liver diseases among others;


Basti– or enemas, aims to remove excess Vata from the body that normally accumulates in the colon causing imbalances such as constipation, infertility, arthritis, Parkinson's disease, tremors, among others;


Nasya– or nasal cleansing, which aims to eliminate excess doshas accumulated in the sinuses, nose, throat and head;


Rakta Moksha– or blood cleansing, a technique not normally used during the detoxification process, however in very specific cases it can happen.


3- Paschatakarma
This is the last phase and involves the progressive return of the organism after Panchakarma. Intense purification requires care for the food introduction again, which includes a light menu with rice and consists of 6 phases of feeding: rice water, thin rice soup, thick rice soup, cooked rice, light soup and rice mixture with other grains.
Gradually, the routine is resumed and the individual will be able to continue normally maintaining the necessary care.

APPLIED THERAPIES

SNEHAPANAM, or also known as Ghee Therapy This is a 3-5 day preparatory regimen done before the main cleanse begins. 
On these days, medicated ghee (clarified butter) or sesame oil will be administered in doses, until the body is completely saturated by the applied fat. As this is an intense detoxification phase during which metabolic toxins are dissolved, most of the body's energy is used for this 
process. Therefore, for an effective detox, it is essential to rest as much as possible and allow the body to work on itself.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FOOD

Ayurveda believes that when the diet is wrong, no medicine can help. And when the is correct, there will be no need for medicine.
Diet is a powerful distraction for humans. It takes on the role of a non-prescriptive medication, especially for those suffering from anxiety and depression. When you're stressed, your instinct is to seek out fried or sweet foods that give us a false sense of comfort and a mental rush. Just like 
cigarettes and alcohol, eating and drinking emotionally is also a strong addictive behavior.

 

Food is an integral part of treatment in Ayurveda. Food is considered the main medicine and the daily intake of adequate food reduces the need for medication.
At Villa Prana Yoga and Ayurveda Center, we serve with love and care – the most suitable food for you.

 

All ingredients used are organic and mostly organic, without the use of any artificial ingredients, refined flour, refined sugar and preservatives are strictly avoided.
