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.

    Shitanshu Thakur

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • 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

    Harmeet Kaur

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.

  • I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. I saw Dr Gurnam for 6 months because of increased long term insomnia. The holistic approach offered definately was a huge help. I am able to sleep so much better and my general mental health has dramatically improved. Please consider the ancient practice of Ayurvedic Medicine for any aspect of your health. Dr Gurnam really cares and wants to work with you to give you the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
