Panchakarma is an ayurvedic form of therapy that aims at eliminating toxic elements from the body. Let’s break down the word so that it makes more sense. Pancha implies “Five” and “Karma” implies regime in other words: Therapeutic Pentad. The word ‘karma’ in panchakarma denotes “bahu iti kartavyata” (Ch.Su.2/15 Chakrapani) which means multifaceted five therapeutic actions. “Karmasu iti kaushalam” (skillful actions) , Science of Metabolic detoxification (vishaharan) & Art of Biopurification (shuddhikaran) and Rejuvenation (kayakalp).
It’s basically a bio-cleansing regimen, which facilitates the body system for better bio-availability of the pharmacological therapies, besides achieving homeostasis of Doshas.
