As people age, they often accumulate excess body fat. Weight gain not only creates cosmetic problems, but it also contributes to disorders such as Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cartilage breakdown, sexual dysfunction and even cancer. Typical approaches to conventional weight loss have a high failure rate. However, the scientific literature provides data indicating that sustained weight management is attainable.

Carrying extra pounds has a profound impact on our health and well-being. Perhaps the most devastating emotional impact of being overweight comes from the frustration of continued dieting without success or ending up heavier than ever after following a diet.

Many physicians fail to realize that no single fat reduction protocol will work for everyone. That is why overweight people must follow a custom-tailored program to modulate factors in their body that result in excess fat build-up. There are several common culprits that cause aging people to add body fat and to also prevent them from losing it. These missing links are often overlooked, and the result is that most weight loss programs fail.

Definition


Obesity is defined as an excess accumulation of body fat associated with increased fat cell size and number. The term overweight denotes excessive body weight relative to height.

The most common medical assessment of obesity is "body mass index". Body mass index (BMI) is calculated based on body weight (measured in kilograms) divided by height (measured in meters squared). A person is considered overweight if they have a BMI of 25-29.9. A person with a BMI greater than 30 is classified as being "obese"

The Dangers of Obesity


It is clear that excess weight has a dramatic impact on one's health. Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths (tobacco being first). Overweight and obesity are known risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and some forms of cancer (uterine, breast, colorectal, kidney, prostate, pancreatic, and gallbladder).

Obesity is associated with stress, incontinence, complications of pregnancy, menstrual irregularities, excess facial hair, increased surgical risk, and psychological disorders such as depression. Epidemiological evidence supports popular belief that the BMI associated with the lowest mortality falls within the range of 18.5-24.9, i.e., thinner people live much longer.

In Ayurved Shastra, Sthaulya is the condition which is comparable to obesity. Interestingly, Ayurved has described Sthaulya as Meda dhatu vikruti and sagging of breasts, stomach and buttocks is the classical sign of it. It does not mention weight as the factor. This is why precisely, the treatment of obesity is tailor made and designed to have fat loss as well as inch loss.

This is what is exactly achieved here at Uranus Health Home. Obesity and its related hazards like infertility, menstrual problems, hyperlipidemia, breathlessness, cancer, sleep disorders,atherosclerosis, hypertension, varicose veins, heart diseases, diabetes, mental stress, fatigue, weakness, osteoarthritis and gall bladder stones etc are treated using Medicines, Panchkarma and Yoga.

Weight management is certainly a priding factor of this institution and constant endeavour is taken to work towards its eradication in the most scientific way.
