Post panchkarma tips

The panchkarma therapy offers excellent rejuvenation to the physical as well as the nervous system. To sustain and maximise the therapeutic results of the therapy, a few follow-up tips and guidelines are strongly recommended after the panchkarma treatment.

  • Rest in a calm and serene environment to clear the mind. Stay away from the television, Internet, and any kind of media or entertainment. Practice silence, and do not talk unnecessarily. Put the mobile phone on voicemail or switch it off completely.
  • Drink 4 to 5 cups of warm water every day.
  • Consume herbal teas (cinnamon, ginger, and saffron) to rehydrate the body.
  • Get adequate rest. Do not sit or stand for long durations.
  • Skip long walks or strenuous exercises for 2 to 3 days. The body needs time to relax after the therapy.
  • Do not get irritated, angry, or anxious.
  • Postpone travel plans. Plan the vacations, sight-seeing or professional visits a little ahead.
  • Practise yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, and other relaxation methods for 3 to 4 hours a day. These techniques will cleanse the thoughts and replenish the brain cells.
  • Try not to sleep or take naps during the day.
  • Sip warm water infused with grated ginger for optimum energy and immunity.

  • Be aware while walking and breathing. Walk barefoot on the grass and feel the touch of feet on the grass. This increases the oneness with the nature and balances the nervous system.
  • Keep the bowel movements regular and on time. Do not hold back on the natural urges. This increases toxins in the body and may result in infections.
  • Incorporate daily self oil massages, preferably with sesame oil for at least two weeks after the panchkarma treatment.
  • Develop a healthy routine after panchkarma therapy. A maintained daily routine improves digestions, increases metabolism and establishes discipline, happiness, peace and longevity.
  • Maintain a follow-up panchkarma treatment schedule as advised by the massage therapist.

Diet tips

  • Do not overeat. It is advisable to follow the panchkarma diet for at least a week before returning to the normal diet schedule.
  • Avoid heavy foods such as junk, spicy, greasy, or fried foods. Avoid meat for some time, especially red meat, as it is tough on the digestive system.
  • Eat freshly cooked meals and avoid reheating the food often.
  • According to Ayurveda, yoghurt and cheese are best consumed at lunch. Night meals should be light and easy on the digestive system.
  • Mung beans are notably recommended in Ayurveda for their immense nutritional benefits. Consume Mung beans stew (khichdi) for a few days to help digestion.
