Panchakarma is unique set of procedures beneficial in the elimination of vitiated doshas of the body, due to improper diet and regimens or seasonal and enviormental changes.

Majority of the pediatric diseases are shamanoushada saadhya. Even drugs with mridu and madhyama veerya act very effectively in children. This can be attributed to their mridukaayata and alpaveeryata. Those diseases which persist even after shamanachikitsa have to be treated with sodhana chikitsa.
