The toxins in our body are either water-soluble or fat-soluble. The water-soluble toxins are generally flushed out of our system via the blood and kidneys. Fat-soluble toxins are harder to expel because they are stored. It takes more effort by our body to release and expel them.
Heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, food additives, pollutants, and environmental chemicals can all end up stored in our fat where they can stay for
years and lead to physical and mental chronic ailments. Authentic ayurvedic detox, or panchakarma, is an ancient technique of cellular cleansing. Developed over centuries by traditional ayurvedic doctors, its tried and tested combination of treatments, medication and lifestyle, is a proven method for releasing toxins and cleansing the body. It reaches those hard-to-access fat-soluble toxins and moves them out so your body feels lighter and brighter.
Panchakarma is a holistic treatment for not just the body but also the mind, senses, emotions and spirit. The preparatory stage of ayurvedic detox is called oleation, which refers to the use of oil internally and externally. To start your detox, you drink medicated ghee. It flushes the bile, starts to release the toxins from fat cells, liver and brain, and resets digestion and elimination.
You also receive therapeutic massage using medicated oils. While the massage may be relaxing, it also stimulates the tissues to release the toxins. Healing Body, Mind, Heart and Spirit
