Obesity is one of the nutritional disorders that results in increased body weight and fat deposition, in all age groups. Due to fast food culture and a sedentary lifestyle, excess fat deposition takes place in our bodies due to the dysfunction of medo dhatu agni, resulting in medo dhatu dushti. According to Ayurveda, Sthoulya is Santharpana janya vyadhi (over nourishment of the body). On the long run, it may cause Hypertension, degenerative disorders, diabetes, cardiac issues, acidity, cholesterol, depression, etc.
Ayurvedic treatment aims at correction of dietary patterns in the form of nidanaparivarjana, pathya aharavihara, apatarpana chikitsa, etc., to correct vitiated dosha and agni. Cycling, yoga, and nature walks will help to keep our body and mind active, which is also an important part of the therapy. Ayurvedic panchakarma therapies like vasti,virechana, Udwartana, and choorna panda sweda are really effective in curing this condition.
