What is Obesity?

Obesity is a medical condition and refers to excessive body fat. It occurs when the amount of calorie consumption exceeds the amount of calories lost. Obesity is not just a cosmetic concern, but it is a serious condition that is associated with several health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, back pain, bone diseases, etc. Obesity or overweight status is determined on the basis of Body Mass Index (BMI), which is further evaluated in terms of fat distribution.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Weight Loss
  • Detoxification through Ayurveda Therapy Udvartanam: It is a unique whole-body therapy that uses herbal powder mixed with warm oil. The herbal paste is spread in a synchronized way to give a whole-body massage, with special attention to areas of increased fat deposits.

During the treatment, sesame oil is used to create an herbal mixture and the herbal powders used are dry in nature so as to create a mixture hot in potency. It helps in removing fat blockages and stiffness and thus, each massage stroke results in scrapping and liquefaction of excess Kapha (Fats). This herbal paste rub on the body stimulates fat metabolism and facilitates easy transportation of excess fat to the central eliminatory channels. Post the therapy, you are given a steam bath where you lose a lot of excess water in the body by sweating. The result is a reduced cellulite/ subcutaneous fat tissue.

  • Weight-loss treatment through Kashaya Vasti: It (Kashaya Vasti) involves enema using medicated decoction. Kashaya means medicated decoction and Vashti refers to administration of medicines through the rectum (intestinal tract).

Kashaya Vasti is the most effective fast remedy to treat Weight Loss. In this Ayurvedic remedy, heat is directly applied to a specified body area by keeping warm medicated oils for retention. Usually, a herbal dough is prepared and the warm oil is poured into it and allowed to rest on the affected area. It instantly releases pain, stiffness, and tension of muscles. Specifically, for weight loss, it helps in removal of gas that causes pain and also in removing toxins for purpose of body Detoxification. Gastric problems such as constipation and flatulence are treated effectively using Kashaya Vasti. Thus, it helps in easy elimination of excess fats from the body.

How Ayurveda Scores Over Conventional Therapies?

Ayurveda describes obesity as Sthaulya or Medo Roga. Obesity has been described as a disorder in which diminished bio-digestive fire of Meda-dhatu leads to the excess formation of Meda (Fats) in your body. The biggest difference between Weight Loss through Ayurvedic therapies and more conventional Western methods is the focus on burning the digestive-resistant fat depositions by re-igniting the digestive fires.

However, opting for fad diets or trying losing weight quickly can only worsen the condition. To lose weight in a healthy manner, choose Weight Loss with Ayurveda.

In Ayurveda, it is believed that one of the reasons for being overweight is due to the imbalance of the Kapha Dosha. What happens is that the Kapha dosha and obesity share the same qualities, such as, both of them are slow, heavy, dense, etc. Therefore, when you start gaining extra kilos, your kapha becomes aggravated and this leads to even further weight gain.

This treatment will not only cleanse your system but will also boost your immune system, improve your skin health, improve circulation, etc. If you are looking for a detox treatment at home, you can go for a khichdi diet. This is a three-day plan where you consume only khichdi all three times. You can opt for a detox tea or a green tea in between your meals. This cleanse will help you sleep well, improve your health, promote proper elimination of waste, improve metabolism and digestion.

  • Practicing Yoga every morning

15 minutes of yoga every morning can prove to be immensely beneficial. It will not only act as a physical activity but, it will make you flexible and help you relax.

  • Physical activity

Without practicing regular physical activity, you cannot lead a healthy life. You need to pick up an activity of your choice and do it at least for 30 minutes every day. It can be walking, or a sport, anything.

  • Follow a diet to pacify your Kapha

Breakfast – you can opt for a bowl of fresh fruits, fruit juices, smoothies, hot cereal, muesli, toasts, and herbal teas.

Lunch – Lentils, veggies, some ghee, spices such as cumin, coriander, etc., rice, cornbread, rotis.

Dinner – Lentils, a small portion of rice, veggies, soups, toasts or salads.

Ayurveda for Weight Loss tips

  1. Sleep when you are supposed to A proper sleep cycle goes a long way in helping you lose weight. It is believed that one must sleep in between 10 PM to 6 AM. This will not only guarantee an ample amount of rest, but it will also enhance your health.
  1. Sweat it, once you are up One of the important Weight Loss Ayurvedic tips is to exercise as soon as you wake up. Between 6 AM and 10 AM, it is believed that the earth and water elements are high. This leads to the dense, cool, dull, and slow environment. Thus, when you opt for a physical activity once you are up, it breaks the cycle of lethargy.
  1. Don’t snack  When you consume several meals, even healthy ones, your body is supplied with external sources of energy. Therefore, it will not utilize the stored fat, and this decreases your fat burning potential.
