Often when people go for Panch Karma they have been very ill for a very long time, but this needn't be the case. I wanted to share a case study with you by Dr Joshi:
"A man came to me for Panch Karma with no real health problems of any consequence. rather he stated his objective was to raise his level of awareness of the atma within himself. he underwent a six week program of cleansing and rejuvenation with Panch Karma and then I started him on a course of rasayanas.
"He subsequently related to me that about a month after completing the treament., he experienced the dawning of a whole new level of awareness. He noticed his mental clarity and comprehension were much greater than they ever had been in the past. he also said that is sense of humour had grown to "outrageous proportions."
But the most impressive result, he said, was the growth of a sense of lightness, freedom and non attachment. He reported that he felt much more surrended to the experience of the divine within himself, and that much of the "struggle of life" had dropped away.
Such an experience demonstrates that when the false covering of ill health is removed from the mind, sense and body, our true nature or prakruti shines through and is intimately connected to the universal prakruti."
The lesson? If it ain't broken-fix it anyway!
