Before and after, the amazing result of Claude Chouinards’ Panchakarma
Tired, drained of energy and in great need of transformation is how I felt when I checked in at Oneworld Ayurveda for a fourth Panchakarma (PK). I knew in advance that this was not going to be a beach-style holiday, I also knew that I was going to come out a refreshed man.
It is a real privilege to be able to choose to do a 28-day program. Besides knowing that my doshas were out of whack, I had lower back and left leg pain, my eyes were tired, and I looked like the picture on the left! In the few weeks prior to the PK, I was impatient, lacked sleep, and had too many things on my plate and on the back burner, it’s at this point one has to say ‘ENOUGH is enough’, there is no need to wait for a journey to the hospital because of burnout—be smart and take a break, and this is what I chose to do.
Over the years, I have learned how to do a proper Panchakarma—letting go is certainly a key factor, and turning off the switches is the best way to get top results. During a PK, my twice-daily meditations become deeper, I sleep better and get up early, and I appreciate the yoga sessions and the simple and clean meals that are so well prepared. I look forward to seeing what the doctor/s has in mind for the days to come, what detox I will do, and what medicine I will have to take—which are not always pleasant yet totally fine when you know how you’ll feel the day after a detox. What I truly appreciate is my silent days and the walks in the rice fields.
For, as the Founder of Oneworld Ayurveda, my greatest pleasure is to witness the other guests experiencing their PK at the same time as I do, the participants come from all over the world with different purposes, some arrive in quite a bad shape and leave changed, satisfied with the results and with a beautiful smile. I am also very proud of our team, they have grown to be consummate professionals and love what they do best, which is healing!
I came out revitalized, with 9 kilos (17 pounds) less to carry, no more back or leg pain, my eyesight restored and totally happy, looking like the picture on the right! I have already saved my spot for a PK in February 2019, join me and let’s do it together!
