What is Panchakarma?

After the 2022 NFL Superbowl, we all might have seen how some athletes prepared nutritionally; one athlete followed a diet/cleanse called Panchakarma. What is Panchakarma you may ask? Well, to be simple, it is a type of holistic health practice.

Panchakarma was founded by the traditional medicine system of India, Ayurveda. Ayurveda is a system that follows a holistic approach of treatment, which involves the body, mind, and spirit.1 In this practice, Panchakarma is believed to rid the body of toxins and impurities that lead to disease by using cleanses.1
