If you have been struggling with losing weight and would like to go for a simple and effective approach, then Ayurveda can help you. Managing a healthy weight is not only essential for your overall fitness, but it also helps in decreasing your susceptibility to various diseases. Being overweight or obese means a higher risk for many medical conditions such as cardiac vascular disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, etc. Moreover, the physical appearance of being obese often affects mental health. No matter whether you have a little or a lot of weight to lose, it would be a long and challenging process. But with the right treatment and lifestyle modifications, you can have a slimmer and healthy body.

According to Ayurveda, being overweight or obese is correlated to ‘Sthaulya’, a metabolic disorder caused by the dysfunction of Meda dhatvagni – the factor responsible for the nourishment and metabolism of fat tissues. Weightloss therapy in Ayurveda focuses on strengthening the digestive fire to improve your gut health, burn stubborn fat and expel toxins from the body. After a detailed initial consultation, Ayurveda practitioners would recommend the right therapies, lifestyle modifications, and herbal remedies for weight loss.

In addition to recommending Ayurveda practitioners also formulate the right slimming treatment tailored for each person. Some of the common treatments include Udwartanam, Choorna Swedam, DhanyamlaDhara, Virechana, Medicated steam baths, and more.

Udwartanam: It is a deep tissue massage therapy using herbal powders and medicated oils to improve the body’s blood circulation and exfoliate dead cells. This Ayurvedic massage therapy involves vigorous upward strokes, which help to remove toxins from the skin and burn accumulated fat under the body’s skin.
