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.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • I have had a fantastic experience with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal clinic.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • 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.

  • It was a wonderful experience with u guys.A natural way to fight the disease with no side effects of treatment.


    Harmeet Kaur

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz
