Ayurvedic Treatment for Obesity
Obesity has become one of the fastest growing disorder of the decade. From children to adults, one in four individuals is obese. Obesity means that the body mass index (BMI) is more than 27. Excessive accumulation of fat in the body causes obesity. In a day we consume near about 1600-2000 calories and only 1000-1200 calories utilization done by yourself means near about 600-800 calories remain in the body. This leads to excess deposition of fat in the body and causes obesity.
Increased body fat put the person at risk of critical diseases like heart disorders, diabetes, kidney ailments, liver diseases, arthritis and much more.
Ayurvedic View of Obesity
Acharya Charak explained obesity in “Asthnidit Adhaya ”. It is known as Medoroga. It is called by aggravation of Kapha. Kapha is normal state provide nourishment to tissues through various microchannels, but when it is aggravated it leads to the production of toxins in the body. These toxins accumulate in channels and causing obstruction of channels.
In medoroga, the toxins accumulate in medovah strotas and leading to increased production of medadhatu. Hence, if you want to treat obesity its first step is the purification of Kapha dosha and 2nd step is cleansing and medovah strotas (fat channels) through medicines and panchakarmas.
Pacification of Kapha doshas done by “vaman”. Vaman means the elimination of doshas through vomiting. It is done by medicated decoction of madanphala and yastimadhu. After vaman 7 days of “Sansarjana Karma” means diet schedule followed by the patient which leads to the elimination of doshas and ulceration of agni means digestive power. Vaman also helps in cleansing of small channels.
After vaman virechan should be done. It is for pitta dosha but the doshas which remain in body even after vaman should be removed by virechan therapy. It also causes cleansing of medovah stroas.
Panchakarma like vaman-virechana does not help in weight reduction it helps in “Reduction of fat”.
