This cleanse would have been much harder had I not had the support, encouragement, and camaraderie of my four classmates who were also practicing panchakarma. How helpful it was to get texts from each other reminding us of our purpose or simply lamenting together about the infamous ghee burps! As part of my job as a wellness clinician, I coach individuals in quitting tobacco. While I’ve always understood the research to indicate that social support is important with behavior changes, I now have a deeper understanding for how truly vital having several people rooting and empathizing with you can be. I’m grateful that I was able to practice panchakarma with a group of intentional women within the yogic community.
