   Ayurveda and Weight Loss

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine, nearly 5000 year old. It means the science of life. The remedies of Ayurveda have been successfully used the worldwide for curing many diseases like obesity, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, cancer, jaundice etc.

The total Ayurvedic approach is towards balancing the mind, body and the senses and to achieve perfect health. Ayurveda has its roots in nature. Ayurvedic practices bring you in harmony to nature and are virtually free from side-effects.

Ayurveda uses a three-step process to prevent disease and reverse imbalance. This process has been applied successfully to treat virtually diseases from menopause to weight loss, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive problems, anxiety and insomnia, chronic pain and many others.

These three steps are:

1. A Healthy Lifestyle
Most imbalance and disease result from years of unhealthy lifestyle. Ayurveda guides you adopt a healthy lifestyle so that your personal constitution is in balance with nature.

2. Restores Balance
Ayurveda restores the inner balance of your body and creates harmony amongst the basic bodily functions (digestion, metabolism, circulation, elimination, tissue development, nervous system). The root imbalances causing disorders are gradually reversed.

3. Rejuvenation and Cleansing
Ayurveda cleanses the body of all of toxins, undigested food and metabolic wastes, which cause low energy, accelerate aging and cause many diseases. Ayurveda cleanse and rebalances the body, restores its innate healing ability and removes the debilitating effects of stress.

Ayurveda and Weight Loss: Ayurveda is an alternative therapy for losing weight.Ayurveda believes that you are made up of space, air, water, fire and earth. The whole creation i.e. nature is made up of these five elements. To remain healthy all these five elements must be balanced in the body just like in the nature.

According to Ayurveda there are three types of energy forces or "doshas" that affect us in various ways.

  1. Vata Dosha : This is the first type of force which is a combination of space (ether) and air. Vata is responsible for movement and circulation, respiration and elimination.
  2. Pitta Dosha : This is the second force formed by the combination of fire and water. This force is mainly responsible for Metabolism and Thermogenesis. The main function of this dosha is to convert food into nutrients so that the body can assimilate them easily.
  3. Kapha Dosha : This is the third dosha formed by the combination of water and earth. This dosha is responsible for protection and growth. The function of this dosha is to build the body and protect the various organs by giving protective layers like the stomach lining protects the stomach.

#Step 1: Know your Dosha
If you want to lose weight, then first you should know your dosha. The most common type of weight gain is caused by having a slow metabolism. This is common for a person who is a classic Kapha type.

Ayurveda will recommend a diet based on your constitution because the dietary requirements vary from person to person depending on the dominating force in his system.

# Step 2 : Elimination of Toxins
Toxins are introduced in your body through faulty diet, environmental pollution and stress. These toxins give birth to diseases like diabetes, cardio vascular diseases, colon cancer, and gallbladder diseases etc. which in turn are associated with obesity.

Ayurveda begins the weight loss programme with removal of toxins from your body. 99% of the toxins can be eliminated through simple breathing and cleaning the excretory organs with the help of some herbs recommended by Ayurveda. The toxins in the body damage the various organs responsible for weight loss, thus undermining the body's ability to loose weight. Detoxification helps in improving the functioning of organs and in sustaining the weight loss for along period of time.

# Step 3 Balancing all the three forces
Ayurveda balances the three doshas viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha . It i mproves the functioning of organs with the help of various natural herbs. These herbs heal the various organs responsible for weight loss as well as balance the various forces in your body.

# Step 4: Healthy Diet
Ayurveda recommends a different diet for different people based on their dosha.

In this way Ayurveda helps people maintain a healthy life and to keep off weight gain. Ayurveda recommends a holistic approach to weight management. In Ayurveda, the emphasis is on determining the cause of the individual's health need, and based on that analysis, offering an individualized treatment that includes diet, daily routine and herbal formulas.
