"Health" is "a condition of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not just the absence of sickness or disability." In the Ayurveda view, in whom, activity of Dosha (humours) Agni (digestive power) Dhatu (tissues) and Mala (waste products) are normal and sense organs and mind are in pleasant state are considered as healthy person. Imbalance in these factors and accumulation of toxins produce diseases. Various pollutants, contaminated particles, and other dangerous waste elements are constantly depositing in our bodies owing to the worldwide urbanization and globalization, causing a variety of diseases, including mental and bodily imbalance. Panchakarma is a penta bio-purification that includes Vamana, Virechana, Basti, Nasya and Raktamokshana. Panchakarma helps in bringing accumulated toxins into the GI tract and removes from the body through nearest route and help in re-igniting the digestive fire and brings about balance of the Doshas. As a result, disease-causing complexes from the body are eliminated and prevents disease recurrence and development, thus making it possible to achieve public health. People's health concerns can be satisfactorily resolved if Panchakarma is well supported by scientific documentation and confirmation.
