Panchakarma was not as hard as I expected
I got my period soon after I completed panchakarma, and it was lighter and much easier than I had experienced before. It lasted for just four days, much shorter than in the past.
I was nervous to go back to work after the program ended. My job can be very hectic, but even with the constant pace of telephone calls and emails, I felt a sense of peace on that first day back. The things that used to make me tense didn’t bother me so much anymore. My coworkers noticed too. A few of them said I looked like a completely different person. That reflected to me how imbalanced I had been before, and how the unity I had experienced during my meditation was showing on the outside too.
Doing Panchakarma Home Therapy was very good for my health and life overall. My periods have continued with more regularity, and the peace of mind, which was something I had not expected to come out of the program, stayed as well. I’ve kept up with many of the practices I learned, such as tongue scraping and neti and nasya. And now that I know how how easy it is to cook kitchadi, I love making it as a regular meal.
I am very pleased with the results overall. Completing Panchakarma Home Therapy gave me much more than a regular menstrual cycle with few PMS symptoms. It reminded me of how my body is supposed to work, and created a sense of calm that has benefited all other areas of my life.
