Our society is suffering from preventable complex diseases. Despite amazing diagnostic tools and powerful pharmaceuticals, serious neuro-muscular diseases like muscular dystrophies, motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, spondylitis, hypothyroidism, psoriasis, skin-sex and sleep disorders, migraine, epilepsy, hypertension and even diabetes are posing serious health problems to the patients and physicians.

In this context ayurvedic Panchkarma treatments have captured the attention and imagination of modern medical scientists and health professionals. Panch karna are five unique, original, time-tested approaches of human treatment. This ayurvedic speciality is useful for promotion of health, prevention and cure of diseases. Panch karma is also useful in the management and rehabilitation of so-called uncontrolled diseases of modern age.

Ayurveda believes that human diseases are unlimited How many afflictions have been in the past and how many will evolve in the future, there is no definite answer. The number of human diseases may be indefinite, but their treatment can be simple. We can fight and win serious complex diseases by focusing our attention on primary cause of disease.

Disease according to Ayurveda is caused by dysregulation and depletion of vata and agni elements. Our immune system is dependent on integrity of tridoshas viz. vata-pitta-kapha. The body's natural immune system plays a major role in preventing even serious diseases like cancer and AIDS.

The factors that cause the degeneration of immune system are many, a primary one being depletion and dysregulation of vata and agni elements. This basic pathology can be corrected by ayurvedic panchkarma, rasayana, special diet and support of Panch yoga (Yama-Niyama-Asana-Pranayama-Dhyana).

Ayurveda is reborn again in modern time because people are suffering from complex, diseases and are fed up with the side-effects and high cost of modern treatments. Ayurvedic Panchkarma is becoming popular in many countries as a new path of healing and mantra for rejuvenation. The oil therapies of Panchkarma are scientifically verified for their effectiveness in the simple management of serious neurological disorders. The purificatory therapies of Basti, Nasya, Virechana and Vamana have been proved to correct the metabolic disorders. Ayurvedic Panchkarma and rasayana treatment is also effective in the management of genetic degenerative disorders like muscular dystrophies and motor neurone diseases.
