How I have personally benefited from a Panchakarma
Lost 10 pounds and keeping it off, it has been a month.
Lost an inch off my body overall
No more driving-related and social anxieties
Calm and centered, sometimes even during great stress
Look much younger
Skin is clear
Eat more fruit, more vegetables, fewer carbs, and almost no meat
Completely avoid certain foods that I was addicted to before
Cook simple meals every day, rarely eat out
Continue my daily yoga and meditation
Great sleep quality
Energized with purpose on most days, even when unwell
Sing and dance more often
don’t feel down as before, when things don’t go my way
enjoy solitude and study, very much like how I used to be as a child
