In Ayurveda there are mainly two types of treatment, namely, Shodhana or purification and Shamana or medicinal treatment. Shodhana plays an important role in making the body purified for the normal organic process to restore and medicinal treatment when required to take its course without any obstacle in the organic process. Ayurveda strongly believes in restoration of the organic process of the body in its original state and thereby using body's own vital force or energy in treating any alien harmful diseases rather than making the body a battleground between diseases and medicines. Thus Shodhana plays an important role by making the body free of toxic substances so that through various circulatory channels organic flow of various kinds can work for the nutrition and betterment of body parts unhindered. For instance for healthy hair blood circulation in the scalp and consequent nutrition of the hair follicle is the first criterion and when through Ayurvedic Shodhana like Panchakarma treatment work toward that it actually guarantees nutrition for the scalp.
Panchakarma is the holistic purification for a complete and sustaining treatment to take effect and this purification process in the tradition of Ayurveda for lustrous healthy hair is worldwide recommended as a harmless procedure that not only can result in hair regrowth in bald patches on your head but can guarantee a health condition that cannot make your scalp vulnerable to premature baldness or graying of hair. Panchakarma is not an Ayurvedic medicinal treatment; rather it is the treatment to open up the healing possibilities of your own body. Just think Hair follicles and roots on the scalp just like skin are connected to circulatory channels or Shrotas in the body carrying sweat which is called Sweda Vaha. Without clearing these clogging channels or Shrotas called Sweda Vahas how can you expect that on the reverse movement the oil massage would take the nutrition deep under the scalp in the hair follicles? In the same manner sufficient blood circulation in the scalp roots actually assures better nutrition of the hair follicles and consequent hair growth or regrowth. Now when Panchakarma through detoxification process aims to make the blood circulation better, isn't it highly beneficial for providing rejuvenation and nutrition to the hair follicles as well? Thus Panchakarma actually relieves all obstacles for an all round betterment of hair and scalp condition.
Ayurveda for lustrous healthy hair cannot be considered in its lasting benefits without Panchakarma. Panchakarma is comprised of lot of hot oil massages or hot medicated oil retention processes called Shirobasti and oil flow treatment on the head called Shirodhara that apart from great array of health benefits for rest of the organs can be hugely beneficial for scalp condition or rejuvenation of dry follicles. Nasya is regarded to have the greatest outward and immediate effect on the scalp and hair conditions among the Panchakarma treatments. Through Nasya an Ayurvedic medicated oil formulation is given in the nasal path to reach it in the membrane in the entrance of the brain from where all nerves relating to sensory organs like ear, nose, and throat are connected to brain. Remember from this point the nerves are attached to the scalp surface also gets alert by the Nasya induced medicated oil. This oil likewise treating vision or hearing impairment or slackness of hearing or absence of smell perception also rejuvenates the dried and would-be-died follicles and helps regrowth of hair.
