Obesity is called as Medarog in Ayurveda, which is caused when the kapha is aggravated. Kapha is an Ayurvedic humor that is heavy, dense, slow, dense, wet, dense and cold in nature. It rules all the lubrication & structures in the mind and body apart from controlling the formation and weight of all the seven tissues which are blood, fat, bones, muscles, marrow, nutritive fluids and reproductive tissues.
The Ayurvedic treatment for Medarog begins with the pacification of Kapha Dosha. This is done by eradicating Kapha-aggravating foods. Next, the treatment focuses on cleansing the channels of Medovahi through cleansing herbs so that the excess weight is reduced.
