Under Ayurveda - a 5,000+ year old healing practice from India which the World Health Organization (WHO) considers to be the oldest comprehensive health care system in the world - optimal health is about much more than just looking good or being fit. To be truly healthy, we have to be balanced in body, mind and spirit. This can be challenging in our toxic, high-tech modern world, which is why Ayurvedic doctors recommend regular Panchakarma detoxes, the most effective healing modality in the science of Ayurveda. As the name suggests, Panchakarmas entail a series of five holistic "karma" cleanses designed to eliminate deep-seated toxins and restore balance in body, mind and soul.
