Using short, delightful Balinese ceremonies and recitations when opening and closing daily treatments has a wonderful uplifting, evolutionary and spiritual efect-in addition to the health benefit of Panchakarma. I arrived with underactive thyroid, arthritis, water retention, IBS, chronic constipation, high blood pressure, menopausal hot flushes and was overweight. Within 3 days my blocked bowel problem and high blood pressure become normal (apart from a few isolated occasions). After 4 weeks of Panchakarma my joints are far less painful , I’ve regained the suppleness I had 6 years ago, shed the water retention, lost weight without effort, have no more hot flushes, my cracked tongue has healed and I feel like a newborn foal. Plus it’s been a great meeting so many interesting people.
