Panchakarma literally means "five types of bio- cleansing therapies". They are vamana (therapeutic induction of vomiting), virechana (therapeutic induction of purgation), nasya (nasal instillations), nirooha basti (therapeutic enema predominantly with medicated decoctions) and anuvasana basti (therapeutic enema with medicated oils) according to Atreya school and considering both types of basti as one, Dhanvantari school of thought mentions raktamokshana (bloodletting) as a procedure. This five fold therapy is aimed at eradication of the basic cause of disease to achieve mitigation of the disease.
Panchakarma is essentially applicable in a wide range of preventive, curative and promotive conditions. These therapies are advocated even in a healthy person to combat seasonal imbalance of dosha. These measures are preceded by snehana (internal or external administration of medicated oils or fats), svedana (induction of sweating) and followed by samsarjana karma (restorative regimen).
