Best Homeopathic Medicines for Obesity or Weight LossObesity or excess of fat is a worldwide epidemic that is increasing day by day. It is much more prevalent in US, Canada and other parts of the western world. This does not in any way mean that it is absent in Asia or Africa. The percentages might be a little lower but the trend is upwards only.

Understanding Obesity (मोटापा किसे कहते हैं ?)

Obesity is a state or a medical condition in which so much fat has accumulated that it becomes a health problem. This should not be seen just from a cosmetic point of view. While most of the persons may be concerned about their looks if they are overweight, the detrimental effects are not confined to spoiling one’s looks. It predisposes one to a variety of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure, spinal problems, arthritis, varicose veins and so on. A lot of these problems are related to high mortality rates. Therefore, one can easily say that obesity can directly or indirectly cause one’s lifespan to decrease.

The normal way to measure obesity is to calculate one’s Body Mass Index or BMI. It is calculated as follows-

BMI-Formula-1 (1)


e.g if one’s body weight is 75 kg and his height is 1.6m, his BMI will be 75/1.6×1.6 =29.29. So the BMI comes out to be 29.29.

Given below are the figures to see the normal BMI and what constitutes obesity. A BMI between 18.5 and 25 is considered normal. Between 25 and 30, one is considered overweight and anything above that is obese.

BMI-1 (1)


Causes of Obesity or being overweight (मोटापे या बढ़े हुए वज़न के कारण )

There may be a lot of medical conditions that can cause one to gain weight or become obese. Some of the common conditions that cause obesity are Hypothyroidism or Polycystic Ovaries in the case of females. In such cases, it is important to treat the underlying cause to treat obesity and control or lose weight. In other cases, where there is no medical condition that has led to obesity, the causes are more related to one’s lifestyle. The modern lifestyle is to blame for this. There is hardly any physical activity in today’s urban life. One tends to have a completely sedentary lifestyle. The diet is full of calories. This may be due to an increase of junk food or due to packaged food. Today’s diet is far removed from nature. Fruits and vegetables are consumed in much lesser quantities than they should be.

Role of diet and exercise for weight loss or reducing obesity (मोटापे में खाने की भूमिका )

Diet and lack of exercise are the two most important factors that contribute to obesity. While the modern day diet is becoming more and more full of fats, sweets and empty calories, it is becoming devoid of nutritious vitamins and minerals. The fibre content is also decreasing. One tends to stack up on junk food in an effort to take a quick bite while on the go. At the same time, physical activity is on the decline. One has increased access to vehicles and the need to walk or cycle is almost not present. Even for commuting short distances, one uses cars or two wheelers. All these things are readily contributing to this epidemic of obesity.

When it comes to getting rid of the excess fat, one needs to work conscientiously and consistently on both the counts mentioned above. One’s diet has to be altered so as to include more and more natural fruits and vegetables. Processed food and junk food should be cut down to the minimum. A daily exercise regimen needs to be adopted. Exercising for 30-40 minutes for a minimum of 5 days a week is necessary.

Homeopathy for Weight Loss or Obesity (वज़न या मोटापा घटाने में होमियोपैथी कैसे सहायक है)

Talking of Homeopathic treatment for weight loss or to cure obesity, Homeopathy does not offer any wonder cure for this problem. Homeopathy helps by regulating the metabolic system of the individual. There are more than 100 medicines listed in the Homeopathic literature for obesity. It is a tough job selecting the right medicine for a particular patient. One needs to take into account a lot of things before selecting the right course of treatment. These things relate to other symptoms or conditions that may be present or the person may be suffering from. A lot of importance is given to the reason, if any can be found that stimulated weight gain. This reason could be a particular illness or an event or some psychological setback in life. The general reaction of the person to extremes of temperature, his or heating habits also need to be taken into account.

There may be flushing of the face despite being anemic. The hands and feet remain cold. The muscles are flabby and relaxed. The patient is so weak that walking or talking can be difficult. There may be palpitation of the heart that is worse by any and every movement.
