Obesity

Vasudeva Ayurvedic Health Resort is one of the well-known ayurvedic centers in India that provides very effective traditional ayurvedic treatments for obesity.

Obesity is a condition of the body, characterized by over accumulation of fat under the skin and around certain internal organs. It is often referred to as Medoroga, (Meda means fat) as fat is the main cause of this condition. Obesity is the most common nutritional disorder among the affluent in all over the world. About 40 percent of women and 20 percent of men report that they are trying to reduce their weight.

According to Ayurveda, there are seven basic elements in the human body known as the seven dhatus. They are Rasa (lymph), Rakta (blood), Maans (muscle), Meda (fat), Asthi (bones), Majja (nervous system) and Shukra (reproductive system). These are present in human body in particular proportions and any change in their equilibrium leads to diseases. Ayurvedic physicians are of the opinion that overweight and underweight are indications that the vata, kapha and pitta in the body are out of balance. In obese persons, meda is nourished excessively, while other dhatus get malnourished and kapha is accumulated. Lack of physical exercise, sleeping during daytime, consuming fatty and sweetened food items and the wrong diet and lifestyles, which increase Kapha are the common causes of obesity.

Obesity adversely affects the normal functioning of the liver, heart and kidneys.Obese persons are susceptible to chronic diseases like stroke, heart diseases, high blood pressure, liver diseases and diabetes. Obesity hinders normal life activity of an individual. Reduction of longevity, premature ageing, low sex drive, poor sexual performance, unpleasant body odor, excessive thirst, difficulty in walking, tiredness, general disability, loss of vitality and mental problems are other adverse effects.

The most common type of obesity is alimentary in origin. The person eats too much or does not exercise regularly. Often the real cause of obesity is wrong eating habits and laziness, initiated in early life, at home. The excess amount of calories is stored as fat in the body. There is also a natural tendency to increase weight during the middle age, but this would be slight and gradual. Certain medicines like steroids and antidepressants may also cause weight gain.

Panchakarma, diet control and regular exercises like yoga, jogging, swimming, cycling can help in weight loss. Ayurvedic medicines can be of great help in reducing the accumulated fat without any side effects. Ayurvedic treatments for obesity concentrate in resetting the mind-body's ability to normalize itself by enhancing digestive fires and regulating the storage of energy and fat.
