With lifestyles becoming fast and people having very less time to concentrate on health and fitness, Obesity has become a major health hazard. Obesity is a condition where you have excess fat accumulation in your body, which increase chances of metabolic diseases, cardiac, diabetes and hypertension, arthritis and kidney problems. Most Common Causes of Obesity include intake of excessive carbohydrates, fatty & junk food items, lack of physical exercise, heredity factors, endocrine diseases like hypothyroidism, PCOS, as well as emotional disturbances like stress, lack of sleep and certain medications like antipsychotic drugs or Steroids.
Obesity treatment in Ayurveda: Ayurveda adopts a comprehensive approach to treat obesity where a combination of panchakarma treatments, lifestyles changes, balanced diet, physical activities and ayurvedic medicines are administered under expert supervision for best and long lasting results. Among the many treatments in Ayurveda, Udwarthanam is an important one.
Udwarthanam: Udwarthanam is one of the main treatments for treating obesity. This involves massaging the body with medicated powders, especially over points of excess fat deposits. Powder Massage helps to burn & break down the fat deposited underneath the skin there by aiding in weight loss. Udwarthanam is also accompanied by detoxification that cleanses our colon and removes fat collected as toxins in our body. Purification and detoxification is done through panchakarma procedures.
