Whenever a child is born everyone is anxious to know its weight. At that time if its more everyone is happy but that’s not the case when we get older. Too much weight is not good for anyone whether it’s a child or an adult.The disorder “Obesity” is globally recognised as the most common problem today. Firstly, it is necessary to believe that obesity is indeed a disorder, it sure a’int good to be too fat. There are many who toil with various exercises, gym and dieting to get rid of their excess weight. There are still others who get fed up of their excessive weight and go for extreme steps like going under the knife. There are some extreme surgical processes to reduce weight like liposuction and the like.
However, Nature can come to your rescue when you are fed up with carrying extra baggage all the while. According to Naturopathy, obesity can be reduced with some very simple lifestyle changes. Walk as much as possible whether it is to a neighbourhood shop or just like that whenever you feel like it. You should remember never to take rest soon after having a meal. Especially after dinner, make sure you hit the bed only after two hours. Another extremely easy to follow and simple method is to completely avoid sitting down half an hour after your meal. Such simple procedures work wonders on your body which will be visible soon after implementation unlike other methods of reducing weight.
Exercise and yoga are great healers too. You will be surprised to know that once the body gets used to exercise, the hunger pangs you experience automatically reduce to a great extent. You can expect to eat only to meet your body’s actual need rather than a superficial need for food.
Once you decide to reduce weight, the first step is to ensure that the weight stops increasing, only then can you think of loosing weight. Look at obesity as a monster that invites unnecessary troubles like diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases to name a few. One has to take up the fight against obesity on a war-footing so as to remove its traces from your life!!!Your life is in your hands and no one can know that better than you yourself!!!
Let us narrate the case of Ms Rupal Dave, who came to our naturopathy centre in January, 2007. She had come to attend her daughter’s engagement ceremony. Her weight was 75 kilos/165 lbs. She was facing a number of problems including knee pain and nerve disorders, constipation and thyroid among others. She was under medical treatment for blood pressure and other health problems causing a lot of unwanted stress. After she turned to naturopathy, she was taught simple exercises and a few dietary changes. Soon, she completely got rid of knee pain and nerve disorders. After a while even her doctor stopped prescribing blood pressure medicines. Of course, her weight reduced considerably to 60 kgs and of 2012, she was taking only tablets for thyroid. She is still fit and lives life with a new zest.
There is also a case of Mr Umang who is a the director of a well-known educational institute. It wasd during a trekking trip that he experienced a lot of difficulty in breathing and realised he was overweight. He joined the naturopathy programme for 10 days which helped him lose weight gradually without any tough exercises or diet programmes. Using some easy weight loss techniques and regular walks combined with self-control, he lost 25kgs in 6 months. All this without any side-effects or weakness. On the other hand, Mr Umang’s weight loss helped him get rid of back-pain and of course breathing troubles. He now lives his life with a renewed energy and wants to lose more weight.
