All the learned scholars of Ayurveda since beginning of the present era have highly appreciated the importance and therapeutic efficacy of Panchakarma therapy. The description of Panchakarma is found to be popular in Ayurvedic classics viz Charak Samhita, Sushrut Samhita, Ashtang Hridayam, Ashtang Sangraha, Sharangdhara and Vangsena etc. Some important data collected from vari-ous senior experts and specialist of Panchakarma during organizing Continues Medical Education (CME) for Teachers on Panchakarma Teachers at Raipur and New Delhi and reoriented training program for Ayurvedic Medical Officers on Panchakarma at Raipur whom experienced and standard practice of Panchakarma. Classical Panchakarma includes Vamana, Virechana, Anuvasan Basti, Niruh Basti, Nasya and Raktamokshana, which require more attention and care from the physician. The procedures are also time taking. Due to these facts some of the physicians developed easier techniques with better therapeutic effects. These procedures are popular in India but now they are becoming popular all over world.

It can also use as standard operative procedure for the practice of Panchakarma in the health care centers or hospitals.

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian System of Medicine has been in vogue from times immemorial to impart natural healing for various ailments. The system was nurtured by ancient scholars on the basis of sound underlying philosophy, oriental methodology and practices prevalent in that era. This system is believed to be quite safe and free from side effects as it is more close to nature.

Ayurveda has its primary objective in emphasizing upon the prevention and pro-motion of positive physical, mental, social and spiritual health and treatment of disease is secondary task. Ayurveda is the base of all medical sciences. History of medicines reveals the fact that Ayurveda has made enormous contribution to the mankind.

The Ayurvedic approach to the Treatment of disease consists of two major procedures-

1. Samsodhana Chikitsa (Purificatory/Biocleansing Therapy).

2. Samshamana Chikitsa (Pacificatory Therapy).

Samshodhana Chikitsa envisages Panchakarma treatment which is basically a Bio-cleansing regimen intended. To eliminate the toxic elements from the body and thereby enhances the immunity of the body. Samshaman Chikitsa consists of conservative treatment like Langhana, Pachana and Drug Administration etc. Samshodhana Chikitsa is considered superior to Samshamana Chikitsa as the chances for recurrence of the disease so treated are remote.

Pancakarma increases the acceptability of body to various therapeutic regimens like Rasayanan (Rejuvenation) and Vajikarana (Aphrodisiac). Thus, Panchakarma therapy is believed to impart radical elimination of disease causing factors and maintain the equilibrium of Doshas. Fivefold measure (Sh.U8/70) comprehended as Pancakarma are:

1. Vamana (Therapeutic Emesis)

2. Virechana (Therapeutic Purgation)

3. Anuvasana (Medicated Oil Enema)

4. Asthapana (Medicated Decoction Enema)

5. Nasya (Nasal administration of Medicaments)
