Obesity is a metabolic disorder. These are a direct result of modernization combined with lack of exercise, excessive intake of sugar and incorrect lifestyle. Consequently, over-consumption of calories and low physical activity are the root cause of obesity. Obesity can cause serious health complications. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat accumulates to such an extent that it can have an adverse effect on health, which can reduce life expectancy and or increase health problems.
In Ayurveda, Acharyacharya describes the Ashtninditapurana and elaborates on two formidable conditions called Visatathula and Atikayya. Due to its complex pathogenesis, variable complexity, and treatment, atisthulpurush is the worst among them. Even in Ayurvedic texts, obesity is described as Stahulia or Medoroga. It is described under the caption of SantarpanotthaVikara (disease caused by over-nutrition). Ayurvedic classics pay adequate attention to obesity (Sthaulya or Medoroga) and recommend diet and medicines to control the disease. Non-communicable disease currently accounts for about two-thirds of all deaths worldwide, this is one of those. The basic principles of the treatment of Sthaulya (obesity) described in Ayurvedic classics are used in the management of obesity in diagnostics, atheotherapy and samana and hepatotherapy.
