Diagnosing obesity involves assessing body mass index (BMI), body composition analysis, and understanding the individual’s medical history and lifestyle. Ayurvedic treatment for obesity focuses on holistic approaches to weight management, promoting healthy lifestyle modifications, balanced nutrition, and Ayurvedic therapies.
The treatment plan includes personalized dietary recommendations, emphasizing whole foods, portion control, and avoiding processed and high-calorie foods. Regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, yoga, and strength training exercises, is essential for weight management. Ayurvedic therapies like Udvartana (herbal powder massage), Swedana (herbal steam therapy), and Virechana (therapeutic purgation) may be recommended to support detoxification, stimulate metabolism, and reduce excess body fat.
In addition to lifestyle and dietary changes, stress management techniques, adequate sleep, and psychological support are integrated into the treatment plan. Regular monitoring, follow-up consultations, and individualized support play a crucial role in achieving sustainable weight management and overall well-being.
