Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma to facilitate deep cleansing and healing of the body and mind. The initial stage of Panchakarma therapy is called Purvakarma
Ayurveda believes that the causes of chronic disease are deep-rooted imbalances in the dosha (basic body elements)-dhatu (body tissues)-mala (waste products). The following information will be beneficial in understanding the preparation phase of purvakarma.
It has now been scientifically proven that a natural purification treatment can successfully eliminate environmentally toxic substances such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB's) and pesticides from the body, without any negative side effects. A laboratory study at the Colorado University demonstrated that classical Panchakarma treatment eliminated up to 50% of the detectable toxins in the blood.
Purvakarma is the preparation for panchakarma that helps to mobilize and liquefy waste products (ama) from the tissues and to move it out towards the intestines, which then allows Panchakarma to flush them out. 

Panch means 5 and karma are the actions of this removal process that is tailored towards each individual.

Purvakarma is recommended for the full success of Panchakarma, though there can be benefits attained without it as well. 
The program includes eating Ayurveda's signature healing dish called kitchari, a delicious rice, bean and vegetable meal that balances the doshas and starts the process of detoxification.
Before the actual operation of purification begins, there is a need to prepare the body with prescribed methods to encourage it to let go of the toxins. These two procedures are snehan and swedana.
Snehan means “love” in Sanskrit, which is referred to as “internal and external oleation”. The internal oleation is accomplished by consuming prescribed quantities of ghee (clarified butter) and specified herbs along with external oleation consisting of Ayurvedic massage and body treatments.
Snehan reduces the dryness of body tissues (dhatu) and body passages (srotamsi). This ultimately helps in driving impurities out of the body during Panchakarma. Snehan mobilizes unwanted matter lodged in the body and adds to the results of Panchakarma. Daily Snehan profoundly relaxes the body and mind and improves the flow of energy by opening the channels of circulation. In addition Snehan prepares the body and mind to flush excess toxins and doshas from the system.
Swedhana is sweating induced by steam and is given immediately following the snehan to liquefy the toxins and increase the movement of toxins into the gastrointestinal tract to be removed.
