When bodyweight increases

“I just love eating.” “I hardly eat anything, and yet I don’t lose weight.” I feel clumsy and fat.”

This or a similar experience is what overweight people report.

It is not just a question of failing to meet the common standards of ideal beauty. Today we know that being chronically overweight has many consequences, such as adult onset diabetes, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, damage to joints, fatty liver, hormonal disturbances and decreased fertility.

It doesn’t matter whether it is triggered by excessive intake of food, genetic or psychological factors or lack of exercise or sleep.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on being overweight?

Overweight from the Ayurvedic point of view.

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, becoming overweight starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of weight gain, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate throughout the physiology. The metabolism is often disturbed due to many years of wrong eating habits, which makes losing weight by eating less only partially successful. For better results, specific activation of the metabolism is necessary.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s overweight condition varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What can Ayurveda do for you?

In Vedic medicine, overweight is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.

An integrated approach

An increasing number of patients experience that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of excessive weight gain, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing the digestive tract and metabolism can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can reduce weight gain slowly and safely.
