Ayurveda gives a fivefold holistic approach to lose weight. i.e. of diet, lifestyle recommendations, internal herbal remedies, external massage based treatments and detoxification procedures called as ‘Panchakarma’.
According to Ayurveda, good health and maintaining weight are dependent upon our capability to fully metabolize the nutritional, emotional and sensory information that we ingest. When our digestive power, known as Agni (fire), is robust, we create healthy tissue, eliminate waste products efficiently and have a good sleep. If our Agni is weakened, digestion is incomplete leading to undigested food lying and then absorbed into the system from the gastrointestinal tract. The accumulation of toxic residue is collectively known as Ama.
The accumulation of toxins, or Ama, in the system leads to obstructions in the flow of energy, information, and nourishment and is the basis of illness, including deposition of adipose tissue leading to obesity again.
Panchakarma therapy is used to remove Ama and other elemental impurities from our system entirely. Panchakarma constitutes the foremost purification and rejuvenation therapy as it reverses the mechanism that carries toxic waste products from the digestive tract into all the other tissues of the body. In other words, it reverses the movement of Ama, bringing it back to the digestive tract, and then gently expels it from the body.
Udvartana is an ayurvedic cellulite busting therapy. Udvartana improves the complexion and exfoliation of the skin.
