After the main procedure of pancha karma is done, Ayurveda recommends to slowly ease back to normal lifestyle by taking the same number of the days so that body rest and get time allow time to absorb the benefits of Pancha karma. After Pancha karma body can be at ease with slow digestion. So a person is recommended to follow an easy and clean diet and lifestyle according to the principles of Ayurveda to bring the best out of Pancha karma. This is called samsarjana kriya (diet after Panchakarma).
In samsarjana kriya, the aim is to gradually alter the diet from lighter to heavier foods. It is recommended begin with warm liquid meals to solid foods. This is also known as peyadikrama in Ayurveda.
After pancha karma, it is time to nourish tissues. Rasayana is the 7thanga (limb) of Ayurveda, that explains ways to improve wellness, immunity, strength and youthfulness. Rasa means the juice and ayana means the rituals, so this limb of Ayurveda explains how we can maintain ourself juicy (as we age, we shrink) and vibrant, both physically and mentally. Ayurveda recommends diet, lifestyle, herbal jams, specific rejuvenating herbs and massage therapies (like shashtika shali pindasweda, pizhichil, etc please tag them here) for rasayana. It is important to cleanse the body before doing rasayana so that body can process rasayana better. As rasayana is heavy in nature, the rasayana medications can make the body sluggish. This affects digestion and metabolism and increases toxin accumulation in the body. At Liv Ayurveda, our experienced Ayurveda practitioners guide you through Rasayana/ rejuvenation as part of your panchakarma plan or an individual rejuvenation plan as needed.
Sukra, the reproductive tissues are considered as the seventh and deepest of all tissues in human body. So when the body is accumulated with toxins, they are the most affected tissues reducing virility and fertility and causing hormonal, sexual health and fertility problems. Vajikarana, the eighth limb of Ayurveda explains specific care and therapies to improve sexual health. After pancha karma, vajikarana is recommended along with rasayana therapies for rejuvenation and improved sexual health and fertility. Vajikarana involves herbal formulations, massage therapies and diet. At Liv Ayurveda, our experienced Ayurveda practitioners guide you through Vajikarana as part of your panchakarma plan or will provide an individual vajikarana plan as required.
