Natural Weight Loss Remedies – Ayurveda. Being overweight or even morbidly obese seems to be quite a common problem worldwide. Ayurveda, perhaps more a methodology, is considered a good natural way to lose weight. It breaks human bodies into two categories – the very thin and the very fat. Fat bodies struggle with more diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and gall bladder problems.
The main philosophy behind Ayurveda is the belief that being over-weight is due mainly to overeating, irregular eating habits and not properly balancing meals. To that end, they highly recommend natural weight loss home remedies – a diet you can easily follow at home. Please remember, even this approach recommends exercising regularly.
Ayurveda promotes using more fruits and green veggies, avoid too much salt, and avoid fat rich dairy products, meat and non-vegetarian foods. Use dry ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper (fat burners). Avoid rice and potatoes, but go with a wheat based cereal. Eat bitter gourd, and take honey as it mobilizes fat deposits (10 gms daily in hot water with 1 tsp of lemon juice). Try a lime/honey fast to keep energy levels up. Juice of half a lime, 1 tsp fresh honey in lukewarm water at regular intervals. Cabbage is touted for inhibiting the conversion of sugar and other carbs into fat. Eat raw or cooked. And, make your portions smaller.
Supplements are also suggested like Ezi Slim, Medohar Vidangadi Lauh, Punarnavadi Guggul and Neemguard. Evidently Neemguard ( Neem, Giloy and Triphala)is considered safe for increasing the metabolism to reduce your weight and the Indian herb guggulu (a gum resin obtained from the plant of Balsamo-dendron mukul) is the drug of choice for treating obesity.
Many of the herbs used in other countries, while likely effective, may be of questionable use to you if you are not sure just what they are, and what they do. Although the Ayurveda supplements are herbal and natural, you might want to check with your Doctor before embarking on a weight loss program like this.
