OBESITY – Weight Loss

Who doesn’t want to be in shape?

Obesity can be related with disorder called as ‘Sthoulya’ or ‘Medoroga’ according to Ayurveda. In this disorder due to excessive deposition of fat, there is obstruction of Vata dosha. This Vata dosha remains in the GI tract and results in increasing the digestion power of the body. Hence the person starts eating more & more.
