Obesity / Weight Management :
Obesity has become a major concern for health professionals as it is gaining epidemic proportions throughout the world. The WHO estimates that there are at least 300 million obese people worldwide today and the figure could shoot up to 1billion in the future.
High fat food, sedentary lifestyle, and too much alcohol are some of the causes of obesity resulting in accumulation of excessive fat being deposited in various body channels. Other causes could be genetic lineage, use of Steroidal contraceptives, Hypothyroidism, Cardio Vascular diseases, and so on.
When treating Obesity, it is imperative that the exact cause of the disease be first determined. Hormonal Assay, Lipid Profile and other investigations are necessary for this purpose.
Charaka, the great physician of Ayurveda, termed Obesity as Sthaulya and included it under Asta Nindatiya Purushas (Eight undesirable physiques). Overweight persons ( Athisthula Purushas) are more prone to health risks and diseases of the heart, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoarthritis, diabetes, infertility, skin diseases and certain types of cancer.
Ayurvedic medicines and therapies can be of great benefit in treating obesity without the negative side effects of conventional drugs. Contrary to general belief, diet therapy alone is not enough. Diet can avoid further possibilities of obesity, but the fat within body channels has still to be treated and defective metabolism corrected, which is done by Ayurveda therapies.
A typical treatment for obesity under Ayurveda would comprise medicine, therapies and dietary advice. The medicine prescribed will be dependent upon the results of the investigation to determine the cause of obesity, your body type ( Prakruthi) and BMI ( Body mass index). Appropriate Panchkarma ( Detoxification ) therapies spanning a treatment cycle of 4-5 weeks and a specially designed diet comprising of nourishing but depleting food will help reduce obesity, mobilise the fat, reduce blood cholesterol, impart mobility to joints, strenghthen muscles and refresh the body.
