Obesity is a condition in which an individual is significantly overweight, characterized by excessive storage of fat in the body accumulating under the chin, belly, buttocks, and thighs.  When the body’s calorie intake exceeds the number of calories burned, it leads to the storage of excess calories in the form of body fat. 

            In a society that constantly inundates us with the next best diet, it can be difficult to stay focused and know what’s actually beneficial and effective for healthy weight loss. With a wide range of options and diet Ayurveda offers natural treatment to combat obesity. In Ayurveda, obesity is known as Medarog, which is caused by the aggravation of Kapha. Kapha is Ayurvedic humor which is dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold in nature. In a balanced state, Kapha gives nourishment to tissues through various microchannels. However, when it is aggravated, Kapha leads to the production of toxins in the body. Additionally, hampering or imbalance of digestive fire (Agni) also causes obesity.

            Management of obesity in Ayurveda focuses on the pacification of aggravated Kapha dosha along with food and lifestyle changes. Management of obesity also centers on the cleansing of the channels through detox programs (panchakarma), which is considered the cornerstone in the treatment of obesity. Food & Lifestyle modifications play an important role in the management of obesity.
