Losing weight becomes more and more difficult as our age advances. Almost every individual with weigh issues knows this fact. All of them have at one point or the other, experienced a stunted or extremely slow graph of weight loss at a particular age. No this age may be different for different people, but it tends to be at around the same period. In our teens, we gain and lose weight, in and out, and we don’t need to focus much on food and exercise. However, this lack of focus continues on to the later years, despite knowing that our body has undergone some changes and can’t keep up like it used to.
Now, ayurvedic treatment for obesity may involve potent Ayurvedic medications, changes in lifestyle, and sometimes, massages to relax the body. Why are so many things required for weight loss. Well, as mentioned above, losing weight isn’t an easy task as the body is already occupied with detoxifying and keeping it free from illnesses and other foreign particles. This doesn’t mean that losing weight is arduous either. One just needs to inculcate a decent amount of discipline and dedication into their lives, to get it done. Also beneficial would be to get treated from a certified Ayurvedic centre.
According to Ayurveda, obesity usually suggests an imbalance in the three doshas; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. A fact to be noted, is that these three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, are independent of how much more or how much less food, we eat. Yes, the ideal recipe for weight loss is to eat less. But eating less food might cause nutritional deficiencies. Nutritional deficiencies may further cause the doshas to go out of balance. As the balance of doshas keeps decreasing, the problem of obesity in the body becomes more difficult to cure.
Ayurvedic treatment for obesity applies to obesity .i.e. excess weight on the body. In comparison, it is much easier to treat a person who is underweight. This is because once the body gains weight, it treats the excess weight as a component of itself and hence, losing weight becomes difficult. Increasing the weight of an underweight person becomes much easier, as the body will naturally take in all the food and nutrition it gets. Also, controlling weight isn’t just dependent on food intake as factors such as digestion and metabolism will play a huge role. In the end, your body gains and loses weight, based on a number of different processes and mechanisms.
There is a misconception in the minds of people. A lot of people believe that Ayurveda only treats diseases. However, there can be nothing further from the truth. Ayurveda can be technically broken down into two words, ‘Ayur’ and ‘Veda’. Ayur roughly translates into Life and Veda contends to science. Therefore Ayurveda truly means, the ‘Science of Life’. It deals with each and every disease and condition that plagues the human body. Obesity is no different. There are several ayurvedic techniques that can assist weight loss and can help you restore your natural metabolism rate.
Ayurvedic treatment for obesity is a good option because Ayurveda heals the body naturally, and with care. Fat in the body is nothing but an excess of energy that is stored in the body’s tissues. Unfortunately, all this excessive fat acts like an extra baggage for the body. It tends to put a load on the body’s processes and can compromise its ability to keep the body safe from unhealthy conditions. Usually, excess weight is calculated using the Body Mass Index (BMI) factor. The fat in the body can also be calculated using the Body Fat percentage factor.
Another point to be noted, is that Ayurveda does not make absurd claims like “Lose 10 kilos in 2 weeks with our easy-to-follow programs”. Ayurveda doesn’t play that way. It focuses on helping the body achieve natural weight loss results via healthy eating habits and delicate constitution balancing. With Ayurveda, you will learn how to keep realistic goals and achieve them with time-tested tips and techniques. This is how excess weight should be lost. This is how you should change your life. Through Ayurveda, through nature, through the science of life.
