Today, patients are seeking alternatives and options to traditional care. Other forms of medicine, including Chinese holistic health practices like acupuncture and acupressure are blending with traditional Indian medical treatment methodologies like Ayurveda, to offer patients a whole-body approach to health and wellness. For example, you not only treat the pain in your shoulder, but your entire body, your mental and emotional health at the same time.
A cleansing and detoxification treatment known as Ayurvedic Panchakarma works to get rid of harmful toxins that cause an imbalance between the mind, body and spirit. Ayurvedic Panchakarma most commonly takes place in a relaxing, retreat-like environment and usually lasts about 5 to 8 days. During this time period, specialists will work with an individual to restore the body’s balance to its natural state.
Patients who undergo an Ayurvedic treatment benefit from both internal cleansing and relaxation techniques that promote health, well-being and an increase of energy. Internal cleansing also helps the organs to work to their fullest capacity, reducing sluggishness and toxin buildup.
Panchakarma costs in the U.S. range about $1,350 for a three-day stay within a retreat facility. Costs include rooms, food and treatments, but prices increase depending on the length of stay. However, medical travelers to India may benefit from lower costs; approximately $395 for a 4-day retreat. Check out facilities like the Indus Valley Ayurveda Center in Mysore, India, or Ahalia Ayurvedic Hospital in Kerala or a true getaway at Athreya Ayurvedic Resorts at Kottayam.
