Ayurvedic Medicine for Weight Loss

 

As per the figures released by WHO, there are over 300 million obese or overweight adults worldwide. Obesity has become a chronic disease today. Not only this, but the cases of childhood obesity being reported are also increasing at an alarming rate.

 

Cause of Obesity or Weight Gain 

 

The main causes of obesity are the lack of physical activity and the intake of foods rich in saturated fats and sugars. What’s more alarming news for obese people is that they become more susceptible to high blood pressure, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease (heart attacks), cerebrovascular disease (stroke), gout, gallstones, colon cancer, sleep apnea, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, arthritis, anxiety, depression, etc.

 

In Ayurvedic texts, the cause of obesity is attributed to genetic and environmental factors. As far as environmental factors are concerned, diet plays an important role. Medha Dhatu (Fatty Tissue) is an element that causes obesity. When a diet rich in medha dhatu is consumed, it alters the fat metabolism in the body, & causes obesity. Some food items which cause increased production of Medha Dhatu include yoghurt and other milk products, fatty foods, etc.

 

Herbal and Natural Weight Loss Program in Ayurveda

 

The ayurvedic treatment includes Langhana Therapy as the herbal weight loss program in Melbourne, which means the body needs the therapies or herbal powder, which reduces the body mass index. Reducing body mass index and decreasing excess fats from the body is called Langhana Therapy in Ayurveda.

 

It helps include body detoxifications with anti-obesity herbs, improving body fat metabolism using specific ayurvedic medicines, and maintaining the natural mechanism of fat metabolism to prevent weight gain in the future.

 

A research paper presented by C. V. Chandrasekaran et al. mentions that Ayurveda’s priority is preserving and promoting health and treating various diseases. Obesity, or Medoroga, is one of the eight unwanted constitutions in the body. Natural products which are a concoction of herbs like Babbula (Acacia arabica), Guggulu (Commiphora myrrha), Jeeraka (Cumin cyminum), Chitraka (Plumbago europaea), Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) and many others have been used traditionally in Ayurveda for weight management. These products under clinical trials have also shown an effect in weight reduction and lipid levels, decrease in waist and hip circumference and BMI in all tested subjects.

 

Ayurvedic Herbal Remedies and Natural Medicine are used traditionally For Weight Loss

 

Many herbs may help fight obesity along with diet and lifestyle modification. Some of these herbs used since ancient times include Babbula (Acacia catechu), Narikela (Cocos nucifera), Guggulu (Commiphora myrrha), Jeeraka (Cuminum cyminum), Chitraka (Plumbago europaea), black pepper, etc.

 

Babbula (Acacia arabika) :

Babula is used in ayurvedic medicines to reduce kapha humour. Excess kapha is a cause of obesity. Babula has an astringent action and reduces fats, so it is beneficial for lowering body weight.

 

Kadamba (Anthocephalus cadamba) :

Kadam barks are bitter, acrid, astringent and anti-inflammatory. It is used in reducing inflammation, improving digestion, removing gas from the intestines and as a tonic. It also helps to reduce fats and prevents arthritic problems.

 

Guggulu (Commiphora wightii) :

Guggulu is a gum resin of the Commiphora mukul tree. It treats osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia and other inflammatory diseases. It is also helpful in obesity because of the presence of guggulipids. These alkaloids help in reducing body weight and improve metabolism in the body.

 

Jeeraka (Cuminum cyminum) :

Jeeraka improves taste, digestion, body strength and food absorption. It treats diarrhea, indigestion, malabsorption syndrome, fever, acidity, gas, low eyesight, recurrent infections, etc. It also works well in obesity. The main reason behind the beneficial effects of jeeraka in obesity is its property to metabolize and burn fats properly, so it prevents fat accumulation in the body and helps avert regain of body weight.

 

Chitraka (Plumbago zeylanica) :

Chitraka is acrid, hot, anti-cholesterol, appetizer and digestive. Due to these properties, it is useful in malabsorption syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, high cholesterol levels, atherosclerosis, piles, skin diseases and obesity.

 

Black pepper (Piper nigrum) :

 

Black pepper is also used as culinary herbs in Indian kitchens. It has properties such as appetizer, digestive, carminative and anti-obesity. The black pepper helps with respiratory diseases, the common cold, indigestion, muscular strains, diarrhea, constipation and obesity. It helps to burn off the fats from the body. Thus, it helps in shedding off excess fats.

 

Natural Weight Loss or Obesity Remedies in Ayurveda

 

The following Ayurvedic natural therapies are used by Ayurvedic doctors of Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic in Melbourne to help reduce excess weight.

 

Udwartana (Herbal powder Massage) :

Udwartana is also referred to as a herbal powder massage; it helps to burn fat. This full-body massage is performed using a combination of traditional herbal powder and herbal oils. The herbal powder mix has to be deeply massaged into the skin with specific movements to be effective. It aims to reduce cellulite and tone the muscles.

 

Herbal Steam Bath :

 

Herbal steam bath has also been used traditionally as an effective weight loss treatment in Ayurveda. It also helps in balancing the Vata and Kapha Dosha. In this process, the body is enclosed in a chamber and exposed to steam produced from ayurvedic medicinal herbs.

 

Virechana (Medical Purgation) :

 

It is also known as medicated purgation; the individual is fed a concoction of herbal purgatives, which helps clean the body. This therapy is strictly done under the close supervision of an Ayurvedic doctor. Please do not try this without consultation.

 

Basti or Vasthi (Medicated Enema) :

 

It is also known as a medicated enema; this treatment helps clean the lower alimentary canal. It also helps in clearing the ayurvedic brothas and channels in the body, aiming the body to absorb important nutrients properly.

 

 

Yoga For Weight Loss 

 

Yoga helps in obesity by lowering fat deposition and improving metabolism to burn the accumulated fats. In addition, yoga helps reduce emotional eating, stress and anxiety related to obesity by having better control of the senses. Regular practice can also prevent obese people from obesity complications such as heart diseases, joint disorders, elevated lipid profile, etc.

The helpful yoga poses include Tadasana (Triangle Pose), Pawanmuktasana (Wind-Relieving Pose), Uttanpadasana (leg raised posture), Bhujang Asana (Cobra Pose), Sarp Asana (Snake Pose), Shalabh Asana (Grasshopper Pose), Markatasana (Monkey pose) and Vajra Asana (Diamond Pose). 

 

Weight Loss Diet Plan

  • Ayurveda Experts recommend eating only three times a day & snacking should be avoided where possible.
  • A heavy meal should be reserved for lunchtime, while the breakfast and dinner should be light.
  • Eat only when hungry and after the previous meal has been properly digested.
  • A sedentary lifestyle should be avoided. Indulge in physical activities like jogging, swimming, brisk walking, etc., regularly.
  • Emotional eating can be dangerous and harmful.
  • Avoid foods rich in sugar and saturated fats, eventually leading to obesity.
  • Practice yoga and exercise regularly.
  • Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and green vegetables.
  • Follow a diet plan suited to your body type.

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.
