Stage 3: Paschatkarma at Home

7 Days back at Home

During the rejuvenation phase, a person returns to the simple diet of the preparation phase. It is important to do this gradually, by slowly introducing solid foods.

Many people find that the most profound healing occurs during the rejuvenation phase. Physical, emotional and spiritual changes may be experienced in the days and weeks to come. Sometimes issues that have been suppressed will surface.


Panchakarma Diet

imagePanchakarma is ineffective if special detoxification diet is not given along with the treatments. At Auromesa we are very aware of this and every individual undergoing Panchakarma receives a special diet of Organic Kichari and fresh non-GMO, organic vegetables with herbal & therapeutic teas.
