Obesity Facts – Regular Treatments (Drugs) Vs Homeopathy (alternative) treatment
Regular anti-obesity drugs operate through one or more of the following mechanisms and the US FDA cautions use of these products as their claims of safety and effectiveness are unsubstantiated.
- The European Medicines Agency in October 2008 recommended the suspension sale of a drug called rimonabant (Acomplia that alters appetite via a specific blockade of the endocannabinoid system) as the risks outweighed the promised benefits
- Sibutramine (Meridia), which acts in the brain to inhibit deactivation of the neurotransmitters, thereby decreasing appetite was withdrawn from the United States and Canadian markets
- Orlistat (also known as Xenical and Alli) was proved to Interfere with the body’s ability to absorb specific nutrients in food. It was being touted as a obesity products for its property to block fat breakdown and thereby prevent fat absorption
- Many OTC weight-loss products that work as a laxative can cause the blood’s potassium level to drop, which may cause heart and/or muscle problems
Homeopathic treatment is largely based on medicinal plants that are known to target five basic bodily mechanisms: managing or controlling appetite, inhibiting pancreatic lipase activity, stimulating thermogenesis and lipid metabolism, preventing adipogenesis, and promoting lipolysis. International Journal of Food Properties of 2015 suggests that consumption of recommended medicinal plants in the one prescribed form, and at an optimized evidence-based dosage, could possibly be part of a safe and effective complementary treatment for obesity
Effective Weight-Loss tips through Homeopathy
Obesity and overweight treatment in Homeopathy is different from other conventional treatments. While others focus on burning your body fat, homeopathy looks at your treatment holistically and primarily acts on body metabolism, thyroid function and hunger pattern. It is now widely regarded that Homeopathy acts effectively in obesity treatment, at multiple levels
- It stimulates the body metabolism to burn more fat, which means your body starts into an auto function mode to keep the house (your system) clean and clutter (excess fat and water content) free.
- It regulate the digestion process which is essential to ensure that the body is properly breaking down food (biological combustion) and not building up fat from behind while you sweat it out in the front
- Obesity and overweight treatment in Homeopathy works on your body as an anorexiant. This is required because more often than not people who go on diet or pound reduction regimen face the wrath of body withdrawal symptoms. This means your body fights back tricking your mind to go on binge eating.
Homeopathic remedies do not dissolve body fat, therefore exercise along with the right low carb (carbohydrate) diet is a must to ensure effective weight-loss. Homeopathic treatment lays emphasis on the patient profile and his pathological condition, so you can expect individualized treatment plan that suits your body profile and not one-plan-fits-all as in other modes of treatment.

How to lose belly fat naturally
Is Belly fat dangerous to your health? Yes because it’s directly connected to three of the biggest killers – heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. In research studies it is known to cause fatigue i.e., a higher waist circumference can zap your energy and health. Excess abdominal fat is linked to increased day time sleepiness and overall fatigue, hormonal imbalances, sleep apnea, sexual dysfunction, fatty liver and premature aging. Another Harvard study has linked the premature death of nearly 50000 women to higher waist circumference. Visceral belly fat (the type that wraps around internal organs including stomach) releases inflammatory molecules called interleukin 6; higher levels of these molecules are connected to increased level of C-reactive protein which in turn is connected chronic inflammation. Even though inflammation starts out as body’s way to protect itself when it becomes chronic causes cellular damage that ages our tissue and organs and can eventually lead to arterial stiffness and heart disease.
Tips for a flatter stomach
- You cant GET FAT OR STAY OVERWEIGHT without insulin. So keep insulin under control, Never overstimulate production of insulin that is known to push fat into body cells. ‘Keep away from food with hidden sweeteners and processed carbohydrates that chronically keep insulin level high and presence of belly fat. Limit you Carbohydrate intake to about 120 grams (6 servings) and sugar to 15 grams. Stick to this belly flattening sugar carb value, and steer clear of food full of sweeteners
- According to American Heart association and national institute of health the Ideal waist size for women should be 35 inches or less and in men it should be 40 inches or less. Specific to height , take your height in inches and divide by two- this will be your ideal waist circumference. For example if you are 5.5 feet in height (average Indian height), which is 66 inches, if you divide by two you get 33 inches – this is your maximum ideal waist circumference
- You don’t have to live the life of an athlete or eat like a bird to loose that belly fat. By choosing the right food and eating healthfully you can achieve a flat stomach without calorie counting and abdominal crunches. Indian food like Green Peas Curry, Marinated Paneer and Capsicum Subzi, Gajar Fansi, Low Soya Methi Masala, Calorie Nawabi Curry are some of the low calorie subzi’s that you can adopt
- All fat is not bad, it is an essential nutrient that enhances the flavor of food and transports minerals and minerals. The key is not to cut out all fats but to cut out bad trans fat and cut down on saturated fats (found in animal products such as meat & butter). Healthy fat improve our heart health and brain function and help us lose belly fat
- Abdominal crunches does not help lose belly fat. Exercise burn calories and speeds up your metablosim but your body does not burn fat from your abs because you are doing crunches. It only helps you lean and tone up your abdominal muscles which are located beneath the fat layer.
