WELCOME TO Jaggottam Ayurved Panchkarma Center
Jaggottam Ayurvedic Super Healthcare Hub is geared to take an aggressive approach to medical treatment. Like allopathic dispensation, pathology is the backbone of treatment at this centre. This is the first ayurvedic centre in Allahabad to do this and that puts Ayurvedic treatment at par with allopathic
treatment. Equipped with such modern amenities, Ayurveda can no longer be relegated to the position of alternative medicine. At this centre, Ayurvedic treatment runs neck to neck with allopathic treatment provided in hospitals. The idea is
to dispel and allay unsubstantiated fears among patients that Ayurvedic treatment calls for prolonged treatment and the Ayurveda shows slow results. At this centre, results of the Ayurvedic treatment would be visible as promptly as any allopathic treatment. This should encourage patients to adopt Ayurvedic treatment as their first line of treatment and not as alternative medical option.
Unlike other lines of medicine, Ayurvedic diagnoses are based on prakriti which implies assessment of the constitution or bio identity of the individual. It is
a personalised form of treatment worked out especially for the individual undergoing treatment in accordance with his constitution for bio identity. Therefore, it is not a generalised treatment for a disease or ailment like other schools of medicine. Add to this, the fact that the doctor diagnosing a patient at Jaggottam Ayurvedic Super Healthcare Hub will be accompanied by a highly
qualified pathologist. That should make the diagnosis so much more trustworthy and build up confidence of the patient. Every patient will undergo a thorough medical check-up not only before the treatment but also after completion of the treatment.
Ayurveda is the oldest surviving medical system in the world. Nearly 5,000 years old the name ‘Ayurveda’ is derived from its Sanskrit roots ‘Ayur’ and ‘Veda’ which means ‘life’ and ‘science’ respectively. In other words, Ayurveda is not merely a treatment for disease but refers to a complete and comprehensive science of life. Ayurveda is a traditional Indian system of medicine based on Hindu system of preventive and curative medicines whose origin can be tracked back to the wisdom of the vedas. Extracted from the eternal wisdom of the four vedas, it would not wrong to say that ayurveda is indeed the fifth veda considering the wisdom contained in ayurveda with regard to health of human beings.
Apart from the vedas, the earliest compilations of ayurvedic treatment are enshrined in charakasamhita sushruta samhita and astangahrudaya. As many as 80 types of vatha diseases, 40 types of pitta diseases and 20 types of kapha disease have been identified in these treatises.
Ayurveda believes that the entire universe is made up of five elements or panchamahabhootas.These are air (vayu), fire (agni), water (jal), earth (prithvi) and Ether (aakaash).These five elements generate three types of of energy in the human body which are called ‘Doshas’.
The three types of energy or tridoshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vatadosha is dominated by air and space elements; Pitta dosha is dominated by the fire element; and kaphadosha is dominated by earth and water elements. Ayurveda work on the principle that so long as these elements are properly balanced our body functions perfectly and we lead a healthy life. Any disturbance in this balance causes illness, disease or ailment. Ayurveda treats these ailments by correcting the imbalance in the doshas to restore the equilbrium of doshas in our body. Kapha is related to cardiovascular ailments; Vatha is
related to the region between the umbilicus and heart which controls movement of the body; and Pitta is related to the metabolic system.
Panchakarma is a therapeutic procedure in Ayurveda involving five processes to eliminate unwanted toxins and waste material that cling to our body. The human body has a natural purging system which expels toxins and waste from our body periodically in order to remain healthy. But, some of the unwanted toxins in our body are not expelled in the natural process. Such clings to our body and disturb the balance of doshas or bio energies of our body resulting in discomfort and disease. Panchkarma detoxifies the body by purifying or eliminating these toxins through the nose, mouth, skin, or the urinary or anal tract to restore the equilibrium of the doshas thereby rejuvenating the body.
Panchakarma therapy is preceded by poorvakarma which is basically prepurification measures intended to prepare the body for Panchkarma. Poorvakarma involves a set of two processes. SnehanaKriya is an oleation process whereby oil is applied to the body externally or administered
internally in such a way that it helps the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract so that they may be expelled. Ghee or some oil may also be administered internally to dilate the blood vessels.This softens tissues, relieves stress and energises the nervous system.
SwedanaKriya means sudation which is steam assisted sweating of formentation often in combination with herbal concoction.This liquefies and loosens the toxins and assists in movement of toxins into the gastro-intestinal tract for expulsion.
Panchakarma or the pradhan karma is a five pronged Ayurvedic detoxification and cleansing procedure to tone up the body and restore vigour and rejuvenate the body.
Vamana (Emesis) karma is a therapeutic vomiting to balance Kaphadosha in the body and the respiratory tract. This is useful in treating ailments such as cough, cold, asthma, hyperacidity, epilepsy, obesity, skin disorders etc. by eliminating toxins accumulated in the stomach and other parts of the body through the mouth.
Virechana (Purgation) Karma facilitates removal of toxins accumulated in the liver, gall bladder and small intestines through the urinary or anal tract using medicated laxative. It balances the Pitta dosha and helps in treating diabetes, digestive disorders, hyperacidity, skin disorders, fever, rheumatic complaints etc.
Vasti (Enema) karma is the mother of all panchkarma therapies as it cleanses the toxins of all three doshas--- Vatha, Pitta and kapha--- andexpels the same though the colon. Ghee, medicated oil or herbal decoction is introduced
into the rectum, female organ or male organ in the form of an enema with the help of an instrument called Vasti Yantra which cause the toxins to be thrown out. For ailments relating to the Pakwashaya or small intestine enema is introduced into the rectrum and the toxins are thrown out of the anal tract by excretion of stool. For Garbashaya or ailments relating to the uterus enema is introduced into the female urinary tract and expelled through urine and for ailments relating to Mutrashayaor bladder, enema is introduced through the male urinary tract and eliminated through urine. Vasti karma is designed to relieve constipation, chronic fever, osteoporosis, avascular neurosis, sexual disorders, kidney stones, headache, backache, sciatica, arthritis, rheumatism, gout, muscle spasms etc.
Nasya (Nasal) karma refers to administration of medicated oil or choorna through the nose to cleanse toxins found in sinus, throat, nose and head in order to balance kaphadosha. Nasyakarma is applied to disease of the upper part of the neck such as memory, eye sight, insomnia, stiffness of the neck, sinusitis, cervical spondylitis, trigeminal neuralgia, pigmentation of face, facial paralysis, premature greying of hair, headaches, neurological dysfunctions etc. It also helps in expelling excess mucus.
Raktamokshana (Bloodletting) karma is considered to be the best treatment for Pitta dosha to cleanse the blood. It can be carried out by pricking or making small cuts with surgical blades or instruments. Leeches or cow’s horn could also be used for bloodletting. Raktamokshana is used for
relieving skin disorders, glandular enlargement, tumours and diseases caused by vitiated or impure blood.
