It's good that you have made up your will to lose weight. But you must appreciate the fact that there are no shortcuts for healthy living. So do not worry and just do your best. Do not do any action with an emergency mode of mindset. Please develop a plan which is comfortable for you and not a torture for you. The easiest way to move ahead is to eat in small portions (half of your plate should be fruits and vegetables ). Avoid all junk food, processed food etc. A dietitian can help you to plan different varieties of food which are nutritious and tasty and yet low in calories. Note that the diet should be a balanced diet. Exercise 2-3 times a day rather than once a day. Sleep on time (6-8 hrs sleep). Finally mentally relax by doing something creative. Learn yoga (Including pranayama and meditation) which will help your energy levels to be maintained. Make this transition a pleasant experience. Revert any time for feedback and further guidance.

Bariatric Surgery is only done for people who are extremely fat that is BMI over 40. That too is an avoidable venture because it is playing around with nature. Such radical measures should be avoided. You can bring down your weight through better nutrition and some exercise.

To reduce belly fat you need to be particular about food choices & timings. Eat small & frequent meals. Include high fiber foods in your diet such as whole cereals & whole pulses. Drink plenty of water. Avoid refined foods from your diet such as maida, pasta. Keep check on your food intake.

Controlling appetite is at times very difficult. You may take salads, fruits like apple, papaya, pomegranate etc whenever you feel hungry. You may take lemonade with a spoon of honey in it everyday at morning empty stomach. Indulge yourself in some activities so that you can divert your mind from it.

As you sow, so shall you reap. Even if you eat proper food but calories are not burnt, you are bound to gain weight. So maintain negative caloric intake i. E. If you eat 2000 calories, burn at least 2200- 2500 calories. Do not starve. It will harm you. Yoga, walks, jogs, deep breathing will keep you active. Fibers and traditional snacks like roasted or sprouted grams or lentils will satisfy your itch to eat but won't add weight. If you do sincerely, you will be happier. For hair problem write history, shampoo/ soaps you use, any hereditary, exposure to pollution etc may be informed for specific response.

Obesity - Homeopathic Ways To Shed Those Kilos?

Obesity - Homeopathic Ways To Shed Those Kilos?

If there is an excessive accumulation of fat within the human body than what is actually needed to perform certain functions ( that is more than 30% body fat in females and 25% in males), chances are you might be suffering from a chronic disorder called obesity or excessive weight gain.

Common causes for weight gain

There can be a lot of reasons which may cause you to gain the extra kilos. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, suffer from depression, PCOS (in women), consume fat-rich foods or junk foods excessively, it can also lead to weight gain.

The threat of obesity

Obesity is a major evil in the world today, as it is responsible for the deaths of millions all across the world. If not treated immediately, obesity can lead to further complications like heart disorders or asthma, among a plethora of problems.

Role of homeopathy in treating obesity

Homeopathy can provide an effective cure for obesity. However, you must keep in mind that the dosage should be followed up with the appropriate amount of physical exercises and a balanced diet and should be taken only after consulting with your homeopathic practitioner. The homeopathic preparations help in the stimulation of body metabolism to burn the excessive fat. The most effective homeopathic preparations to cure obesity are as follows:

  1. Antimonium Crudum: This homeopathic preparation is effective in treating obesity in children or teenagers. The symptoms where this medication is prescribed are discolored nails, an abnormal craving for salt and extreme irritation. There can be appearances of thick white layers in the tongue among children suffering from the condition.
  2. Nux Vomica: This homeopathic preparation provides effective cure to obesity caused due to leading a sedentary lifestyle for a long time. If there are symptoms of chronic constipation or sensitivity towards cold weather, this preparation is highly recommended.
  3. Lycopodium: If you are suffering from excessive weight gain in the thigh region or the buttock areas along with the symptoms of constipation, craving for sweet dishes among others, a prescribed dosage of Lycopodium might show marked improvement. Patients suffering from the condition might also show symptoms of irritation and sudden anger.
  4. Ignatia: This homeopathic preparation is particularly useful in treating obesity caused due to depression. In this condition, the patient might also show symptoms of rapid mood changes.
  5. Graphite: This homeopathic preparation is an effective cure for women suffering from obesity due to menopause. The affected woman might show symptoms of chronic constipation and extreme sensitivity towards cold air. From an emotional viewpoint, the woman might show symptoms of recurrent sadness.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
