‘Panchakarmas’ literally means ‘Five Methods of Body Purification’, which are employed in healthy person to prevent diseases and improve immunity as also in the sick to treat number of diseases.

There are certain preparatory methods to be done before the actual Panchakarmas performed. They are called as ‘Poorvakarma’ in Ayurveda and involve internal administration of medicated oil or ghee etc. (Abhyantara Snehana), external application of oils (Bahya Snehana) and fomentation (Swedana).[1]
