ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA CAUSE OF OBESITY:
In Ayurevda, obesity is also known as Medorog. There are three energies in our body vata, pitta and kapha which are important for good health. Obesity is caused by aggravation of kapha dosha. Kapha dosha in a balanced state provides the nutrition to the tissues by several micro ways. But in the imbalanced state, kaphadosha leads to the toxins (ama) production in the body.
These toxins accumulate in the weaker passage of body which leads to their blockage. In case of obese people, toxins accumulation occurs in the medovahisrotas (fat channels) which results in increased production of fat tissues (Medadhatu). So when there is increased production of fat tissues in body, it results in increased weight.
In Ayurveda, there are various herbs which are very helpful to manage the problem of obesity. Herbs have healing properties which encourage our body to increase our basal metabolic rate and help to reduce extra fat from body
