LOSE WEIGHT WITH AYURVEDA
 
Obesity is defined as an excess of body fat, and is different to  being overweight which may be relate to muscle, bone or body water.  In North America, obesity is unfortunately a very common and growing concern, now with the world's highest ratio of child obesity. 
 
Obesity is cause by an imbalance 'Vata' which goes into the medovaha' strotas (energy channels) and obstruct them.  According to Ayurveda, people with a Kapha constitution are more likely to gain weight through excess fat than pitta or vata (least likely) people.  Kapha people have to take more care to avoid putting on those unwanted pounds. 
 
EE treatment consists of: 
 
Basti (Lekahn Basti)
Udwartana & Swedana - To reduce the meda lipids
Abhyanga Mardana & Swedana with Vata pacifying oils
Herbal supplements and Teas
Diet control
Yoga / Exercise program
Seminars / Lectures  Meditation 
 
People who have excess fat almost certainly have excess ama (toxins) in their bodies.  Getting rid of this ama is a pivotal primary strategy of weight loss.  This is achieved through Panchakarma (7 - 28 program, see below).  The Panchakarma program will be modified slightly to reflect your goals (eg. More udwartana and Swedana treatments), and the basti program is most often recommended.
 
This program, besides the immediate weight loss, will clean out the toxins from your body and prepare it for efficient functionality, removing the blockages which were in part responsible for the weight gain.  The lectures and constitutional analysis will give you the understanding of your body to know what it needs, the commitment to your body to follow through with your goals, and the respect for your body to enjoy every moment of being a part of it.
 
Below you may read more about Panchakarma, and the three panchakarma packages as offered at Elemental Embrace.  These do give a fair example of the treatments and program cost, but it does vary from person to person  Please get in touch with us, and we will give you more of a custom program to suit your lifestyle and goals. 
 
Panchakarma Detoxification Programs : 7 – 28 nights

Detoxification through panchakarma is the core focus of Elemental Embrace. As our world becomes more chemically enhanced and genetically modified with increasing levels of air pollution, we push ourselves harder and faster through this technological revolution. We only stop briefly to take a pill when our bodies try to slow us down.

Fortunately, ‘western spa’ has created a culture of mini spa vacations to getaway from the pressures of this fast paced lifestyle, offering physical relaxation, mental tranquility and time to ourselves. It is clear to us that we are now searching for more of a mental and physical ‘wellness’ component through detoxification and rejuvenation from these mini vacations, without sacrificing any of the pampering of ‘spa’.

Detoxification at Elemental Embrace, the wellness spa retreat, offers just that and more.

Our detoxification programs involve an initial at home cleanse and preparation, followed by Purvakarma, Swedana and Panchakarma at the retreat.

Panchakarma is the elemental purification and healing modality of the Ayurvedic Medical Science, and offers balancing rejuvenation for mind, body, and consciousness.

Your 7 - 28 program at Elemental Embrace

At Elemental Embrace, we offer an authentic, herbs and herbal oils imported from India, administered by our resident Ayurvedic doctors (Vaidyas). They each hold graduate degrees from the most respectable Ayurvedic universities in India and many years of experience.

As our Vaidyas live at the retreat, and we only accommodate a very small group of clients at one time (up to 18), we are able to begin your package on any day of the week, at your convenience.

Panchakarma detoxification and rejuvenation programs are available between 7 and 28 night stays. Once you have decided to experience a program at Elemental Embrace, call to register for a panchakarma program (minimum 7 nights).

We will then send you a personal lifestyle and health questionnaire which we will need you to fill and return to us. One of our resident Ayurvedic Vadiyas will then advise upon which form of Panchakarma will best suit you, and any present condition.

Following are details of each of the 7 night panchakarma detoxification programs offered at EE, of which one (or two) will be suggested for you.  You will also find here the details of how these individual panchakarma programs become 14, 21 and 28 night programs:
