In Ayurveda, all bodily processes are said to be governed by a balance of three elements or the doshas- Vata (air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water).The dosha that appears to dominate a person’s behavior and physique is considered his constitution type. Each constitution type has particular strengths and susceptibilities. Vata governs all movement in the mind and body and must be kept in good balance. Pitta governs all heat, metabolism and transformation in the mind and body. Kapha maintains body resistance and lubricates the joints.

Pre Purification (Poorvakarma) Measures
Before the actual process of purification begins, there is a need to prepare the body in prescribed methods and encourage the body to let go of the toxins. The two procedures are ‘Snehanam’ and ‘Swedanam’. Snehanam means oleating the body, helping the toxins to move towards the gastrointestinal tract. Swedanam means ‘sudation’ or sweating, which is followed by snehanam. Panchakarma is then given according to the individual’s constitution and disorder.
Post Purification (Paschatkarma) Measures
It is important to follow a diet and lifestyle in order to rebuild the damaged tissues and to give a new level of strength and energy.
Yoga and Pranayama
There are different forms of Yoga, the one that’s most widely practiced is ‘Hatha Yoga’, a system of ‘Asanas’ (postures) meant to perfect and discipline the body, and breath exercises, called ‘Pranayama’.
