Research on Detoxification Effects of Maharishi Panchakarma Treatment

A study published in the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine found that Maharishi Panchakarma, offered at The Raj in Fairfield, Iowa, reduced fat-soluble toxicants such as DDE (a by-product of DDT) and PCBs by about 50 percent. Such toxins tend to remain in the body for a very long time (up to 40 years). To date there is no other proven means of eliminating this class of disruptive chemicals from the physiology. These chemicals have been linked to many chronic disorders, including hormone disruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several types of cancer and allergies.

Without this detoxification program, the expected drop in chemical levels over two months would be only a fraction of one percent.

“Our findings were quite striking, given that the half-lives of these toxicants are all several years in duration, and that this comprehensive detoxification procedure removed them in just a few days,” noted Dr. Herron.
