Ayurvedic Outlook

Obesity is known as Sthaulya Or Meda rog in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, there are three main energies in the body- vata, pitta and kapha which are responsible for good health. Imbalance of any three energies results in any health complications. The main cause of obesity as per Ayurveda is aggravation of kapha. Kapha is one of the doshas in the body which is dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold in nature. It is responsible for structure and lubrication of all body parts. Apart from this, it is responsible for controlling weight and formation of main dhatus like rasa (lymph), Mansa (muscles), Meda (fat), Majja (nervous system) and Shukra (reproductive system). In obesity, meda is excessively nourished. When kapha is balanced, it provides nutrition to the different tissues. When kapha is imbalanced, toxins are produced in the body. These toxins get accumulated in the weaker part of body and cause blockage. In obesity, these toxins gets accumulated in the Medovahi Srotas (fat passage) that leads to increase in the production of medha dahtus (fat tissues) which directly increases the body weight.
