Ayurvedic Treatment

  • This happens when the Kapha dosha is aggravated. With an improper diet, the Kapha dosha aggravates and the toxins accumulate in weaker channels causing a blockage. They scatter in the fat channels (Medovahi Strotas) and leads to the increase of fat tissue (Meda Dhatu).
  • Ayurveda aims at pacifying the Kapha dosha that leads to obesity. Kapha dosha aggravating food can be removed from the diet. The body is then cleansed from Medovahi channels with the help of cleansing herbs. This removes the excess fat.
  • Few important herbs for weight management are Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Bibhitaka (Terminalia belericia), Guggul, Vrikshamala (Garcinia Indica) etc.
