Optimal Weight & Measurements (Weight Management, Anti Cellulite Purpose & Metabolism Repair)

 
Introduction: Obesity is one of today’s most blatantly visible – yet most neglected – public health problems. An escalating global epidemic of overweight and obesity – “globesity” – is taking over many parts of the world. If immediate action is not taken, millions will suffer from an array of serious health disorders.

Obesity is the leading cause of preventable illnesses and death. Generally, although men may have higher rates of overweight, women have higher rates of obesity. For both, obesity poses a major risk for serious noncommunicable diseases. Factors such as over eating, under exercising, genetics, environment, behavioral and social in nature causes imbalance in body constitution which leads to obesity. Health consequences range from increased risk of premature death to serious chronic conditions that reduce the overall quality of life.

According to Ayurveda, when the three Doshas (Vata, Pitt and Kapha which together make the body constitution) in ones Prakriti (body constitution as per Ayurveda) are imbalanced it leads to weight gain or loss). An imbalance can occur regardless of how much or how little food you eat. Inadequate digestion and non-optimal metabolism due to excessive Kapha and Ama (waste & toxins) are at the root of the problem. When Kapha is imbalanced, the heavy characteristics of the Earth and Water elements become hyperbolic. However, obesity can also be found in Vata and Pitta dominant people, if their digestive fire is low it indicates poor digestion. As a result, food is not processed properly, which can result in weight gain or obesity. But in general, Vata types are underweight rather than overweight because their bodies have trouble absorbing nutrients. Weight gain only results when they attempt to eat more sweet and oily foods to calm their Vata imbalance.

Indications: People suffering from the following problems or illnesses like breathing disorders (sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease etc…), certain types of cancers (prostate and bowel cancer in men, breast and uterine cancer in women), coronary artery (heart) disease, depression, diabetes, gallbladder or liver diseases, gastroesophageal reflux disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis (joint pains or back pains), stroke etc…fall under this category. Simple method of BMI (Body Mass Index) can help you access the health risk associated with being obese. BMI is calculated using weight in kilograms and height in meters. The undermentioned index (as provided by WHO) can guide you to the associated risks of developing health problems:
BMI Value Classifications Health Risk
Less than 18.5 Underweight Increased
18.5 to 24.9 Normal Weight Least
25.0 to 29.9 Overweight Increased
30.0 to 34.9 Obese Class I High
35.0 to 39.9 Obese Class II Very High
40.0 and greater Obese Class III Extremely High

At Anammyaa Wellness we use the above classifications along with, body measurements, nadhi parikshan, Dosha analysis and (if required) additional tests to evaluate health risks associated with excess body & abdominal fat.

Therapies & Treatments: An appropriate weight management program usually combines physical activity, healthy diet, and change in daily habits. Other programs may also involve psychological counselling and, in some cases, drug therapy. Losing weight and keeping it off is very challenging because lifestyle and behavioral changes are required. People who are medically obese should consult a doctor for a safe and personalized weight-loss program.
