ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA CAUSE OF OBESITY

  • In Ayurevda, obesity is known as Medorog and Sthaulya. There are three energies vata, pitta and kapha which are essential to maintain a healthy body. Obesity occurs due to the aggravated kapha dosha. Kapha dosha in responsible to maintain the body weight by building up nutritive fluids, blood, fats and bone marrow.
  • In the balanced state of kapha dosha, it provides the nutrition to the tissues by several micro channels. But in the imbalanced state, kapha dosha results in toxin (ama) production in the body. Accumulation of these toxins occurs in the weaker passage of body which leads to blockage. In obesity, toxin gets deposited in the medovahi srotas (fat passage) and there is an increased production of fat tissues (Medha dhatu).

The body parts of lean person like – neck, abdomen are emaciated and veins are prominent underneath the skin. The joints are prominently seen and the man appears to have bone and skin only.

Digestion Strength according to Ayurveda

Weight gain largely depends upon the digestion fire of an individual. If an individual is taking so much nutritious diet but his/her digestion strength is weak, then intake of nutritious diet is of no use. So, strengthening the digestive fire is of utmost importance in order to gain weight. Ayurveda is based on the concept of Tridoshas -Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Like Tridosha control all parts of the body, they also control Agni – the digestive fire. Food provides nourishment to body and tissues and it is the reason for Ojas, complexion and strength. But it is the Agni that plays a vital role in this connection because tissue elements like – Ras etc. cannot even be formed by undigested food particles if Agni (digestive fire) is not present and extinction of Agni leads to death. It’s proper maintenance that helps an individual to live longer and its impairment give rise to diseases. Therefore, Jatharagni is considered to be the root or the most sustaining factor of living beings.

Management of leanness according to Ayurveda

By proper sleep – Like the night of destructions, ultimately and excessive sleep and prolonged vigil (waking up at night), take away both happiness and longevity but the sleep which is properly enjoyed brings about happiness and longevity in human beings.

  • By avoiding tension/stress in day today’s life and by being joyful.
  • By improving the Jatharagni (digestive fire)
  • By the gain of qualities like – contentment/tranquillity of mind/ absence of anxiety in one’s life.
  • Regular oil massage with plain sesame oil. It helps to improve muscle strength, relaxes the body and relieves stress.
  • Intake of curd, cow’s ghee, milk, sugarcane, rice, black gram etc.
  • Use of Soy bean in diet.
  • Regular use of little quantities of spices such as- garlic, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove and black pepper in diet as it helps in improving appetite.
  • Clearing the intestine from worms.
  • Avoid excess physical exercises. Limit your exercise schedule to 15 minutes only.
  • By the elimination of Doshas in time and administration of rejuvenating and aphrodisiac drugs remove emaciation bring out nourishment in the body.
  • Freedom from anxiety about any work, intake of nourishing diet and adequate sleep makes the person fatty like a boar.

By this, the equilibrium of Dhatus ad strength are maintained and the Kapha nourishes the organs and ensures longevity.
