Panchakarma Detoxification Treatment
In this fast - paced stressful lifestyle, our body accumulates toxins that cause deterioration in our natural state of health. These toxins gradually weaken our organs and slow down the normal functioning of the body. Studies show that these toxins have been associated with hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer and other disorders such as allergies.
There are two basic things that the body needs in order to heal itself. One is nutrients and the other is detoxification. Detoxification is the removal of toxic materials that have accumulated in the body. These materials are called toxic because they interfere with the activity of the cells. However, one can reverse the negative effects of a stressful and toxic world following a detox regimen based on the principles of Ayurvedic Panchakarma Therapy.
