The human body’s ability to manage the fats consumed and the way the liver functions to handle this in the overall metabolism setting are dependent on choline. Choline, which is present mostly in the form of Vitamin B12, is available in plenty in most of the foods consumed by people regularly. The issue arises when the body system fails to absorb choline nutrient from the food consumed. There are also cases where the dietary intake does not possess adequate choline in it.
Natural Difficulty in Absorbing Choline
There are certain conditions in which the system finds it difficult to absorb choline though the diet may contain the nutrient. People who have just undergone a by-pass surgery or those who have had a kidney transplant done or if there is already a liver problem like cirrhosis face this issue. There are other reasons also which can lead to choline deficiency, such as the prolonged intake of anti-convulsant drugs and so on.
How to Detect or What are the Symptoms?
Some apparent symptoms can lead the GP to ask for more tests to establish that the person does have choline deficiency. In normal person, even high blood pressure could be caused due to choline deficiency. Then in many cases, a blood test for any other condition might reveal very low levels of VLDL (Very Low-Density Lipoprotein). This substance in the blood is used by the liver to transport fats and naturally, if VLDL is below a certain threshold the person is bound to be suffering from choline deficiency. High level of cholesterol is another symptom. It has to be understood that choline is also essential for the human brain to be functioning at its active best. Deficiency of choline can lead to an early setting in of dementia. Of course, any patient with liver and kidney related condition reaching the doctor will be checked for choline deficiency since these are closely related.
Where to Get Choline from?
The next obvious question is which foods can get you choline easily and you won’t suffer from a deficiency. As mentioned there are plenty of food items of daily consumption which have choline in them. The most frequently recommended are the yolk of the egg. Pastured eggs are recommended and though even one egg can give some 115mgms of choline, you can make a couple of eggs a part of your daily breakfast menu. The other suggestion is raw liver as in beef liver which is quite rich in choline. Those who consume only vegetarian foods can always eat a lot of green vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage and also nuts and legumes (soaked) and milk and yoghurt are all good for choline intake.
Choline is an essential nutrient in the human body and is critical to the growth and development of cognitive functions and its deficiency can lead to many serious conditions, including liver impairment and brain disorders. There are plenty of foods rich in choline and should be consumed regularly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Many people tend to gain weight and it accumulates on your hips resulting in a boarder rear. The buttocks comprise of three muscles known as gluteus minimus, gluteus medius and the gluteus maximus. Out of these, the maximum muscle is responsible for giving shape to the butt. To get an A shaped butt is the dream of many, but very few people have it. This being said, there are many workout options which can tone down the fat at the lower portion of the body and present a person with a perfect butt.
- Squats: Squats are the most popular exercise when it comes down to trim the fat at the lower portion of the body. It reduces fat of the thighs, buttocks and lower muscles. No equipment is required to perform this exercise. Squats should be performed in 2 sets with 20 repetitions. One legged squat can be performed to get fast results.
- Standing lunges: This is a simple exercise where the feet and the hip are kept at a wide angle with the toe pointing forward. The hand is kept on the hips and then the one step is taken forward, the knee is then slowly bent and both the legs should be kept at right angles. This position should be held for a couple of seconds only to repeat the same with the other feet. 2 sets of 20 repetitions should be performed on a daily basis. Apart from standing lunges, some other exercises that help to tone down the fat of the lower body include lateral lunges, forward lunges, multi-directional lunges etc.
- Butt lift: This is a training that involves strength training. It helps to tone the muscles of the buttocks and the lower back. The procedure is simple. It involves lying flat down with both knees bent and both the hands by the side. Both the foot should have a distance of around 1 meter. Then the hips should be slowly raised by keeping the back straight. Breathe out while raising the hips and breath in, while lying flat again. 2 sets of 10 repetitions should be performed in each exercise session.
- Stability Ball: This is a very effective exercise when it comes to reducing the size of the hamstring and the gluteus muscles. Apart from the, it pays rich dividends to the abdomen, lower back, and buttocks. It is a simple exercise which should be started by lying flat with an exercise ball under the heel. The hip should be slowly pulled up by bending the knees. The heel should be dug and the ball should be dragged towards the body till the knee finally bends. It should be done in 2 sets of 8-10 repetitions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

Obesity is a condition associated with having too much fat or adipose tissue in the body. A person having a Body Mass Index of 30 or more is called obese.
If not treated in time, obesity can put you at risk for over 40 chronic medical conditions including, but not limited to High cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, Heart disease, Gallstones, Hypertension, Sleep apnoea (shallow breathing when you sleep), Osteoarthritis, Respiratory problems, Certain cancers (colon, breast and endometrial).
Primary Causes of Obesity
When it comes to causes, there are several that directly or indirectly give rise to this health condition. Some of them are lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating habits and poor diet, family history, lack of sleep, use of certain medications.
Role of Homeopathy in Obesity Treatment
Homeopathy treats obesity with remedies for the different aspects of the condition prescribed on the basis of the causes, symptoms of obesity and patient’s disposition. Before arriving at the right remedies, a homeopath goes through your case history to ascertain whether you’re predisposed to this health condition. Factors like lifestyle and eating habits, along with other health conditions, are also taken into account for coming up with the right treatment plan.
How Does it Work?
The remedies that are prescribed to treat the condition work by regulating your body’s metabolic processes, and improving your digestive system. More specifically, while lowering your food intake they act on your digestion and absorption powers, so that there’s less fat build-up. At the same time, these remedies also help in reducing the effects that low food consumption may cause namely, fatigue and hyperacidity. Again, in contrast to conventional medicines that operate by inducing a feeling of full stomach or limit the absorption of nutrients, homeopathy remedies work by treating the symptoms responsible for weight gain by working on improving your metabolism.
What are the remedies offered by homeopathy?
For this health condition, homeopathy offers about 189 remedies that are tailor-made to suit your specific condition. A remedy for an obese child would be different from the one that has been prescribed for a menopausal woman. Likewise, there are specific homoeopathic remedies for obesity caused by hypothyroidism. A homeopath is the best person to guide you on the appropriate remedies specific to your case.
Homeopathy, as an alternative branch of medicine, provides you with a safe and holistic solution for removing excess fat from your body, consequently leading weight loss.
