Panchakarma Ayurvedic treatments of Basti and Vamana and external Ayurvedic therapies like Udvartana and Swedana provide immediate weight-loss and cleanses out toxins from your body. Obesity is managed based on the Ayurvedic principle of “Gu­ru Cha Atarpanam” which means the foods and medicines should be non-nourishing and provide satiety.

Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma treatment  as an ayurvedic detox program  for obesity and weight loss. It is believed that in case of obesity or weight gain, fat accumulates as Ama in the body. These purification and detox procedures of Panchakarma therapy help to remove this excess toxin (Ama) from the body. These are gentle treatments and easily manage the weight loss. The beauty of Ayurvedic treatment for obesity and weight loss is that it produces weight loss without adversely affecting the physiology and does not cause side effects.

Effective Ayurvedic Detox Program For Obesity And Weight Loss

The Ayurvedic weight loss detox program including Panchakarma treatments of Basti and Vamana and external Ayurvedic therapies like Udvartana and Swedana, besides providing immediate weight-loss, cleanses out toxins from your body and allows it to function more efficiently promoting an overall feeling of health and wellness. A special herbal massage called as Udvartana prevents sagging of the skin as it gradually regains its elasticity and adjusts to the weight loss. Whereas, other rapid weight loss programs with severe diet restrictions without adequate exercise programs and special massages have been known to be unsustainable. Most people regain the lost weight very soon and sometimes even gain more weight. Ayurveda specializes in detoxification. Some of the detoxification treatments involve a mild sweating action to help open the physical channels of the body and help to push out the toxins. The type of therapy that may be recommended varies.

Reviving The Gut Bacteria Helps In Obesity?

According to a leading researcher, junk food kills vital bacteria that help us stay thin. Professor Spector of King’s College London, who specializes in genetic epidemiology, says one reason that obesity levels have increased is because the range of bacteria in our guts has reduced. This is owing to eating of more processed food and fast foods. Although most of the weight-loss plans mainly focus on reduction in both calories and the amount of fat that is eaten, the researcher Professor Spector says that it is actually the junk food that kills vital bacteria that help us to stay thin.
