Ayurvedic Treatment & Obesity
Ayurvedic & Obesity
An interesting study was carried out at the Interdisciplinary School of Ayurvedic Medicine, University of Poona, India investigating the effects of an Ayurvedic herbal preparation for obesity.
Seventy obese patients were randomly allocated into one of four groups. In three groups various Ayurvedic drug treatments were given for a period of three months while one group received a placebo. Physical, clinical and pathological investigations were carried out at regular intervals.
A significant weight loss was observed in the Ayurvedic treatment groups when compared with the placebo.
Body measurements such as skin fold thickness and hip and waist circumferences were also significantly decreased. Decreases in serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels were observed. No side effects of any kind were observed during the treatment period.
Weight Loss Advice
No matter how much excess weight or fat you have, if you want to lose weight permanently, your diet program should be directed toward a slow, steady weight loss. According to official government dietary guidelines, unless your doctor feels your particular health condition would benefit from more rapid weight loss, you should expect to lose no more than 2 pounds of fat a week, although initial loss (mainly water) may be greater. Losing more weight is no guarantee that weight loss is likely to be permanent.
