Panchakarma In Los Angeles

Our Toxic Overload

In 2018, we dumped 70 million tons of toxins into the atmosphere. That doesn’t include the pollutants in our food, soil and water or the toxic sludge that is accumulated from improperly digested food.  Your body has its detoxification pathways.  But when these pathways aren’t working properly, toxins build up and potentially trigger symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, rashes, and many different types of digestive disorders.  These initial symptoms may evolve into more serious illnesses.  Thus, detoxification therapies such as Panchakarma can be one of the most powerful tools for healing.   

Ayo Ayurveda has been offering Panchakarma in Los Angeles, California for many years. Rita Burgos,  Doctor of Ayurveda and Panchakarma Specialist,  will be there with you every step of the way.  Let us guide you through the process of healing and recovery. 

What is Panchakarma?  


Thousands of years ago,  Ayurvedic sages developed a system of gentle detoxification and cleansing that continues to be effective for our modern world. This detoxification system is called Panchakarma..  In Ayurveda, the word for toxins is ama. These toxins (ama) are peeled away through the multi-step process of Panchakarma, allowing your body to reset and connect with its innate capacity to maintain balance. Panchakarma is one of the most powerful therapeutic tools in Ayurveda, both as a preventative tool and as a therapeutic tool to support the healing from disease and imbalances.  


Panchakarma is a process that can go from 7-28 days. This is why we primarily offer Panchakarma in the Los Angeles California region, so we can be there with you every step of the way.  Some Panchakarma programs can go longer, but most programs fall within this time frame.  There are 3 parts of the Panchakarma process:


  • Preparatory process to dislodge and move toxins to prepare them for elimination 

  • Techniques to remove toxins from the body

  • Rejuvenation and rebuilding digestive and lymphatic pathways


Some Information on the Process

Part of this process is done by you in your home and another part of the process is done at the center.  Each plan is designed individually for each client.  It starts with a comprehensive evaluation.  From there, a step-by-step daily plan will be created for you.  The plan involves a daily calendar of meal plans, internal and external therapeutic use of oil and ghee, massage, heat therapies, purgative herbs to move the accumulation out of the body and colon treatments.  In addition, great emphasis is placed on integrating meditation and stress reduction practices during this period.  



Rose Panchakarma - The Rose Panchakarma Program is especially beneficial for individuals who are experiencing Panchakarma for the first time.  It involves a 4 day preparation process that is done at home, followed by 2-5 days of Ayurvedic therapies. 

Sage Panchakarma - The Sage Panchakarma Program is an individualized level with the preparation process going for 7, 14 or 21 days.  We design the days and number of therapies uniquely to your needs.

Whatever program you choose, all Panchakarma programs are individualized so you are matched with the ideal  custom blend of digestive teas, herbal oils and ghee.  


The Panchakarma process starts with a consultation so we can design your program uniquely to your needs.  For new clients, the Panchakarma consultation is $260.  After the Panchakarma consultation, we'll design your program and determine the total cost.  After the Panchakarma consultation, the additional cost ranges from $950 to $3500.  We work with you to design a program that is consistent with your needs, but also has an understanding of your budget.
