Obesity or Overweight
Obesity is a condition characterized by excessive fat storage in the body. When the calorie intake of the body exceeds the amount of calories burned, it causes the storage of extra calories in the form of body fat. Increasing body fat puts a person at risk for many critical conditions, such as heart disease, liver damage, diabetes, arthritis, and kidney problems.
Causes of obesity and overweight
Excessive weight gain occurs when people consume more calories than the body needs, which often happens because of a diet that is high in fat and calories to be sedentary, or both. However, this imbalance between calories burned and calories consumed can also be caused by some factors related to obesity, such as genetic, hormonal, behavioral, environmental and, to some extent, cultural factors. Many other factors cause obesity, such as pregnancy, tumors, and endocrine disorders, and medications that contain psychotic drugs, estrogens, corticosteroids, and insulin.

Excessive sweating with a bad smell
Ayurveda approach towards Obesity and Overweight
In Ayurveda, obesity is known as Medarog, which is caused by the aggravation of Kapha. Kapha is a dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold ayurvedic mood in nature. It regulates the overall structure and lubrication of the mind and body as well as the control of the weight and formation of the seven tissues: nutrients, blood, fat, muscle, bone, marrow, and reproductive tissues.
In a balanced state, Kapha feeds these tissues through multiple microchannels. However, when things get worse, Kapha leads to the production of toxins in the body. These toxins are dense and heavy and accumulate in the weakest channels of the body, causing their blockage. In the case of an obsessed person, toxins in Medovahi accumulate srotas (fat tubes), leading to an increase in adipose tissue production (Meda Dhatu). When the body produces more fatty tissue, it causes weight gain.
The Ayurvedic treatment line for obesity begins with the pacification of Kapha Dosha. This can be achieved by eliminating foods that aggravate Kapha’s diet. Then, the treatment also focuses on cleaning the Medovahi channels by cleansing herbs to help reduce excess weight.
Diet and lifestyle tips
Avoid high carbohydrates like polished rice and potatoes.
Avoid fatty and fried foods, processed foods, fatty foods such as butter, purified butter, cheese, whole milk yogurt, cream, chocolate, etc.
Have more bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and bitter pounding variety.
Replace refined flour with whole wheat flour and rice with brown rice or parboiled rice.
Increase the consumption of fruits, salads, and vegetables.
