It starts by following a special diet for a week before treatments. Then you’ll receive a week of massage and ayurvedic treatments to prepare your body for an at-home cleansing technique. The third week is dedicated to resting and easing back into eating foods which are appropriate to your constitution.
All Panchakarma candidates follow the Atma Ayurveda Annual Pass so that you can maintain the results you get from the cleanse. This is structured out of experience: I have seen many, many people finish panchakarma in India, then leave the treatment center, travel around or travel back home and have serious setbacks or even worse.
If you are new to panchakarma, it is is only natural that you underestimate to protect the time needed after. We are all out of touch with what I call “bio time” – allowing the body the time it needs, rather that what fits into out busy schedules. Where there’s a every human on the planet will get to the end and stop, then go back to ‘real life’.
After panchakarma, the mind becomes very clear,
but the body remains delicate at first, for about a month. It is enters a longer phase where it is rewiring itself around how it can function in this new, clean reality with higher functioning cells and tissues, and upregulating those functions.
This is a process of your biological body and needs to follow ‘ “bio time”. I personally have seen panchakarma’s effects extending into 3 months, which is fantastic!! But it also gives the obvious challenge: you’ve already taken precious time out of your schedule to interrupt disease progress, how are you going to continue to support that AND go back to full time work, play and social life?
So to allow the maximum extension of the effects, and protect the process, there needs to be a structured support in place to help the individual continue the results & avoid going straight back into damaging eating, lifestyle or stress patterns.
