Busy professional lives suggest that people balance their weight by first determining their Ayurvedic mind-body constitution and existing imbalances.
In this condition, two weight management systems offered by Ayurveda:
Kapha-Related Weight Imbalance
"The first type of overweight imbalance is due to a lack of digestive fire (low agni) and lack of metabolism. These individuals, even though they may eat very small amounts of food, tend to gain weight. This type of person seems to gain weight just by being around food. Two things are occurring with this type of imbalance: digestive impurities are being created, and fat tissue is accumulating in the body. Also, the formation of bone tissue is slowed down due to increase of fat tissue. This is a very common weight problem, and the solution is to follow an ama-burning program," says The Council.
Exercise along with diet that reduces Kapha, featuring astringent, bitter, and pungent tastes and reducing salty, sweet, and sour foods is recommended. A morning massage called garshana can be done with silk gloves to help stimulate digestion, or agni, and increase circulation. A gentle laxative therapy can also be provided via a Herbal Cleanse, which helps to further eliminate toxins.
Pitta-Related Weight Imbalance
The second type of overweight imbalance occurs when a person has long-term ama build-up and the channels around the stomach area have been clogged, creating too much heat in the body. Here, the appetite may be very high and the individual may experience a lot of thirst. The person may also experience heartburn or other Pitta-aggravated imbalances, such as irritability and impatience.
At Pranava, our physicians have devised a programme that advocates several treatments, the an example that includes moderate exercise about 30 minutes 3-4 times a week. It is recommended that this type of person choose his or her exercise from the following: brisk walking, yoga, swimming, and light weight training. Eat lots of sweet juicy fruits. These individuals should be on a Pitta-pacifying diet, and include squash, warm milk, and homemade buttermilk in their diet. Stewed prunes and figs can be eaten on the weekends to provide a gentle laxative therapy without disturbing Pitta.
Beating Back Stress
Common to both imbalances is overeating due to emotional stress. This can manifest as eating when you are not hungry, or looking for something sweet to pacify a bad mood. Our Physicians also recommend avoiding commercial protein powder drinks and instead highly recommend eating live protein filled with the intelligence of nature from almonds, walnuts, legumes, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and milk products.
Further and an in-depth analysis and diet can be provided once a thorough consultation has taken place, so please don’t lose any more time wondering what can be done to improve your condition, simply come to our centre and find what solution tailored to your specific characteristics will be the best for you.
