Panchakarma, the five renowned therapeutic measures as a whole is considered as the most meritorious method to be adopted in the field of preventive, curative, and palliative therapy in health and disease. Sage charaka says ' Panchakarma is the wholesome treatment equally beneficial for the upkeep of positive health for the healthy person and cure for the diseased since the process of panchakarma will increase te strength of the body and longevity.

Panchakarma includes five eliminative type of treatment which are Vamana (Emesis) Virechana (Prgative), Vasthi (colonics), Nasya (nasal Administration), and Raktha moksha (Blood letting therapy.)

Panchakarma is not only eliminative but acts also as nutritive and increases body strength. snehana-that is internal and external oleation therapies and swedana-fomentation are the preparative treatment before the main treatment is introduced. Sodhana- is the elimination procedure  which purifies the whole body channels.

Panchakarma purifies the body srota by specific method and makes bod perceptible for new growth and helps to increase immunity by accelerating the nutrition and disallowing the loding of disease agents.

The mode of action of panchakarma in curing disease is: Vamana or emesis eliminates the vitiated kapha and cures the allied disease. Virechana or purgation eliminates the vitiated pitta and cures the diseases caused by it. Vasthi cleans all the vessels of the body and facilitates the smooth function of vata. nasya or errhine therapy cleans the channels in the cranial region and is a specific treatment for the diseases of the head.

The most appreciable merit of the panchakarma treatment is that, when any ailment is cured by this procedd it will not re occur. Sage charaka says ' the doshas alleviated by fasting and digestive drugs , do get aggrevated sometimes. but those cured by elimination therapies do not re occur.
