Weight Management

– Renovating the mechanics of your metabolism –

Obesity is one of the most common health problems in today’s world and also the source of many other high risk health disorders like angina, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart failure, gout, etc. Extensive research has been made to cure obesity in modern medicine and many medicines have also been invented. But, their results are generally temporary. Even physical workouts and dieting will not help much, if we don’t understand the underlying reason for excessive weight (or low weight).

The genuine reasons

According to Ayurveda, being overweight or underweight is due to an imbalance of 3 Doshas (the bodily humors that make up one’s constitution): Vata, Pitta and Kapha. An imbalance can occur regardless of how much or how little food you eat. Improper digestion or improper metabolism due to excessive Kapha and Ama (waste) is the root of the problem. When Kapha is imbalanced, the heavy characteristics of the Earth and Water elements become exaggerated. However, obesity can also be found among people who have Vata and Pitta dominance. These people will suffer from poor digestion if their digestive fire is too low. As a result, food is not processed properly, which can result in weight gain or obesity. But in general, Vata types are underweight rather than overweight because their bodies have trouble absorbing nutrients. Weight gain results when they attempt to eat more sweet and oily foods to calm their Vata imbalance.

How does it work?

The Ayurvedic approach to achieving your ideal weight is based on taking a realistic look at your body type and restoring the entire digestive and metabolic processes. A low calorie diet and regular yoga is also essential throughout this process.

What can be done?

At JSS Ayurveda, we have a multidimensional approach for weight management. First our doctors will diagnose your Prakriti (body type) and your Dosha imbalances. Then, they will prescribe proper herbs, therapies and massages to reduce fat cells in the body and promote proper metabolism.
