According to Ayurveda, the tendency to put on more weight easily or not gaining enough weight depends on imbalance in five elements of body and constitution of three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Although poor dietary choices and inactivity are said to be the top reasons for obesity, physical workout and diets can do very little to help if the underlying cause in dosha imbalances are not managed at the same time.
Weight Management in Ayurveda deals more with the way our digestive system processes the food and impact of liver in anabolic metabolism, which causes the accumulation of excessive Kapha and Ama (toxins from food and drinks).
An imbalance in Kapha can result in weight gain or obesity, while a build-up of Ama is typical among those who are underweight.
In addition to Ayurveda treatments and medications, healthy diet and lifestyle in mother nature at our ashram, yoga, pranayamas, meditation etc. can be very helpful in maximizing the effect of this ayurvedic therapy for weight loss.
Stress Management Programs
The role of stress in the aetiology of several diseases is well recognized in Ayurvedic science and modern medicine. The stress is known as sahasa in Ayurveda. Sahasa by causing ojahksaya (loss of immunity) increases the susceptibility of the body to various diseases. Avoidance of stress is the best strategy for treatment and where it is not possible, the body should be well protected by taking appropriate care of the diet and sleep, sleep here indicates adequate rest required by the body.
Further, regular intake of several rasayana herbs to increase the coping capacity of the body is advised. Several of these rasayanas have demonstrated significant stress attenuating effects in animal experimentation and scientific efforts are ongoing to logically utilize rasayana herbal formulation in stress management.
