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.
