IV Drug Therapy, Weight Loss

How Does IV Drug Therapy Work?

IV drug therapy is based on the concept that your body needs an adequate quantity of vitamins and minerals to be able to have good metabolism which in turn is responsible for weight loss. Secondly, it helps with the process of hydration and can be customised according to your body’s needs. IV therapy is something that will help you start with the process of weight loss but the tricky part is to maintain it. That is where Ayurveda comes in! Holistic approach of Ayurveda not only helps you initiate the process but also helps you maintain it in the long term.

Ayurveda's Role In Weight Loss!

Ayurvedic View On Obesity

Obesity or as Ayurveda likes to call it, ‘Sthoulya’ is a problem that is caused at the root level of Dhatus (tissues). Ayurveda mentions seven Dhatus (tissues) namely

  • Rasa Dhatu: Plasma/lymph fluid
  • Rakta Dhatu: Blood
  • Mamsa Dhatu: Muscles
  • Meda Dhatu: Fat
  • Asthi Dhatu: Bone
  • Majja Dhatu: Bone marrow
  • Shukra Dhatu: Reproductive fluid

One tissue promotes the growth of the next one and in obesity the production and further transition of Meda Dhatu gets hampered. This disruption in the process leads to the imbalance of Doshas and eventually causes impaired agni or as we call it as disturbed digestive fire in Ayurveda.

  • If Agni is vitiated with Vata, it leads to Vishmaagni (Irregular Digestive fire)- This results in irregular eating patterns.
  • If Agni is vitiated with Pitta Dosha, it leads to Tikshaagni (Increased Digestive fire)- This results in increased eating habits.
  • If Agni is vitiated with Kapha Dosha, it leads to Mandagni (Slow Digestive fire)- This results in decreased eating habits.

Whatever the vitiation is it affects your digestion, leads to disruption in metabolism and eventually makes you gain kilos.

Ayurveda Treatment

Weight loss is a comprehensive process. There is no use of jumping to extreme fad diets. Low carb, low fat, keto etc are diets very common these days yet serve no purpose In the longer run. The correct balance of diet correction, lifestyle correction and Ayurveda herbs can lead to a healthy and consistent weight loss.
