After detailed examination, based on the imbalances in humors and analising other physical conditions of the patient, Vaidya(doctor) will decide which are the most suitable therapies out of these five for a person. It is difficult to do all these five methods of treatment at a stretch for a person. Therefore, out of these five, doctors always choose the most suitable method for an individual to detox his body.
It is very important that one should follow strict diet and regimen while undergoing Panchakarma treatments to attain maximum benefit and to avoid any adverse effect. Diet and regimen will be recommended by the doctor based on the Prakrthi (body-type) and other conditions of the patient.
Prior to the Panchakarma(main procedures) one should undergoPurva karma(preparatory treatments/measures). With these treatments deep rooted toxins in the body get mobilized and various channels in the body become smoothened. This makes the actions of Panchakarma therapy more easy and less stressful on the tissues.
Preparatory treatments are as follows
Pachana- Digestive& Appetizing Medicines
Snehanam- Oleation- Internal and External
Snehapanam - This the specific method of internal oleation. For this purpose, ghee(clarified butter) is commonly used, depending up on the condition things like sesame oil, animal fat or marrow also recommended. This is the important stage of preparation of a person for an intensive detoxification which help to dissolve the deep rooted toxins or vitiated humors and drive it towards intestine. A prescribed dose of medicated ghee is given in morning empty stomach. Patient is allowed to eat (specific diet) only when he start to feel proper hunger. The dose of the ghee is increased day by day depending on the response to the prior dose. This will continue maximum for seven days or until the appearance of saturation symptoms.
This will be followed by therapies in Panchakarma. Special dietary recommendations will be followed on these days. It is usual that one become tired or low on these days.
SamsarjanaKrama - After the main procedures, SamsarjanaKrama (a special diet& regimen) is advocated as post-operative measures. Also include medicines for rejuvenation and the particular diseases. This stage is as equal as the stage of main procedures. These recommendations are meant to restore the bodily functions in a proper way and to rejuvenate the body. It is told that the effect and actions of treatments will keep on going in the body for same number of days of treatments. As far as we could keep our body and mind away from other disturbance and distraction will enhance the results of the treatments.
Naturopathy treatment is based on the universal fact that various functions of our body are guided by five primary forces of nature. They are: Jal or water, Vayu or air, Agni or fire, Akash or sky and Prithvi or earth. The ailments occur due to imbalance of these natural forces in our body. Naturopathic cures restore the balance of these natural forces and are seen as facilitators which help our body heal itself through the powers of nature. The system of Naturopathy is guided by certain principles such as:
The available modalities of Naturopathy in Purnagram are-

This stimulation also helps regain some degree of muscle strength after procedures like knee surgery. Muscles are shortened through electrical stimulation via electrodes placed strategically on the surface of the skin.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)is an electrical stimulation by low currents transmitted through the electrodes placed on the skin surface using small battery-powered devices. Unlike normal electrical stimulation TENS does not result in muscle contraction and hence is ideal for temporary relief from pain.
