While most people are worried about the ill effects of being overweight, they don’t consider the various risks of having less weight. Normally, an underlying health disease prevents a healthy weight gain diet. People who have less than normal-weight have an increased risk of developing infections, infertility, and osteoporosis. There are various effective homeopathic remedies, which treat the underlying reason for weight loss and help in restoring the optimum body mass index.

The best advantage of going for a homeopathic treatment is that it doesn’t cause any side effects and you would not have to depend on the medicines after you have gained the desired weight. Some of the most useful homeopathic medications that help in gaining the right weight include the following:


  • Ignatia is one of the best homeopathic treatments, which aid in treating these types of disorders. It helps a person regain normal weight by improving his or her emotional health and restoring normal eating habits, required for the proper physiological functioning of the body.
  • Ignatia is also given for the treatment of constipation and loss of appetite.
  • The treatment is mainly dedicated to helping an affected individual overcome the fear of becoming fat if they eat adequately.
  • Unhealthy weight loss is one of the reasons for health disorders like bulimia and anorexia. People suffering from any of these disorders remain obsessed with their weight most of the time. Such people eat very less amount of food, which proves to be inadequate for their physical needs.


  • Lycopodium is recommended for kids as well as adults who do not have the required weight, despite eating adequately.
  • It has been speculated that such people feel full after eating little amounts of food and it prevents them from having the right weight.
  • Lycopodium is helpful in treating flatulence, bloating, and constipation. It also aids in the improvement of one’s overall digestive health.

Alfalfa tonic:

  • Alfalfa is a homeopathic treatment that has been proven to be effective in the improvement of appetite as well as healthy weight gain.
  • The tonic helps to prevent loss of muscle and improve fat production.
  • It is good for restoring the health of people suffering from malnutrition, bulimia, and indigestion.

If you have tried various methods of gaining the right weight, but couldn’t achieve the desired results, then you may consult a homeopathic expert, who can evaluate the underlying cause of the disorder. He would also try to treat it so that the whole problem is uprooted and you can gain the normal body weight.
