The general approach for treatment of obesity is to suggest a low calorie diet and increased physical activity. There are many weight loss programmes available on the market but an Ayurvedic approach for the obesity (or to loss weight) is completely different and much more result oriented. The main benefit of an Ayurvedic treatment is that there are no side effects.
According to Ayurveda, Obesity is recognized as a disease called “Medoroga”. ‘Meda’ means fat and it is one of the seven Dhatu’s (seven tissues – Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Meda, Asthi, Majja, and Shukra) that are sequentially produced from food in the human body. Obesity is considered as a nutritional disorder produced, mainly, due to sedentary life-style.
