# Does Ayurveda Really Help With Weight Loss?

Without a doubt or question, it does help with weight loss, or dealing with any other health problem for that matter. Besides, Ayurveda also deals with identifying and treating the root cause of the problem, resulting in a permanent solution.

Ayurveda has fundamental principles for every problem, with all the diseases being classified under different body types. There’s no global solution in Ayurveda and the medicines are suggested based on one’s body type, problems, symptoms and various other factors. There are numerous Ayurvedic medicines for weight loss, which you can try. It is important to understand it is not a quick fire solution, rather, effective and comprehensive weight loss aids that offer definitive benefits slowly but steadily. The best part is that, the weight lost using Ayurvedic methods are permanent and they have no side effect, as long as you adhere to the suggestions.

# Tips To Follow During Weight Loss With Ayurveda:

 #  Early To Bed And Early To Rise:

The principal tip is to sleep early and rise early. The best time to hit the bed is 10 PM, at most 11PM, and rising at 5 AM or by 6 AM is a must. Our body functions in a systematic way in line with nature and adhering to the natural cycle, works the best. Our body functions active during the day and rests at night. When we follow this daily routine, many health problems, including obesity is tackled naturally.

 #  Three Meals:

Eating three meals is optimal, unless you have low blood sugar levels. Having multiple meals is not advised in Ayurveda, unlike what many health care professionals claim today. Instead, a healthy breakfast, delicious lunch and a light dinner are recommended. Our liver is at its best during noon, so your heavy meal should be at noon. This way, the body assimilates what is ingested. Also, for healthy and natural detoxification, our liver should have enough rest at night (to detoxify the body), a reason why dinner should be light.

 #  Go Natural:

Nature has everything we need, though we hardly comprehend it. Seasonal fruits and veggies are for a reason. Our body needs food according to the different seasons and that’s why, our body craves seasonal foods during those seasons. Besides staples like rice, wheat and many other fruits and veggies, seasonal fruits and veggies should be part of our diet during their respective seasons.

 #  Water:

Firstly, drinking water soon after or before a meal is not advisable. While water is consider good for overall health and weight loss, consuming it with food dilutes stomach acids that aid with digestion. This is the reason many people are obese, since food is not broken down or assimilated properly. Built-up toxins, hormonal imbalance, improper digestion, etc. are just a few contributing factors of weight gain and obesity. On the other side, sipping water throughout the day, in particular, warm water is ideal and aids with digestion and detoxification.

Ayurvedic Medicines For Weight Loss:

There are many alternatives when it comes to the weight loss in Ayurveda. Here, we would come across the common medicines for all body types, irrespective of the body type. Since we can’t figure our body type at home and need help, which is not possible, we are going to cover medicines that are suitable for everyone.

1. Lemon & Honey:

The most common remedy is lemon with honey. Every morning, the first thing you intake right after brushing should be warm water with lemon juice and honey. This is a delicious drink too! This effective combo reduces appetite, detoxifies the body and aids with weight loss without affecting your health. Many fear lemons, due to cold. If you fear so, you can use it with hot water to combat it.

2. Digestive Aids:

Weight gain is usually due to improper digestion, or lack of digestion fire according to Ayurveda. Foods that boost digestion and improve your digestive fire include ginger, papaya, bitter gourd, garlic, chilli, etc.

3. Get Rid Of Ama:

Ama is the term used to denote the byproduct of incomplete digestion in Ayurveda. Accumulated ama clogs lymph channels and triggers weight gain, besides leaving an individual tired. Without getting rid of it, it’s difficult to deal with weight gain. Hence, consuming foods that aid with elimination of ama is important. Turmeric, Triphala (a dynamic combination of amalaki, haritaki and bibbitaki), trikatu (a potent combination of ginger, Indian long pepper and ginger in equal proportion), Barberry and Guggulu, all help in eliminating ama. You get these in capsule form, and you can also use powders.

4. Fasting:

Fasting once a week is urged in Ayurveda for detoxification and efficient functioning of digestive system. You can have water, green tea (ginger tea, tulsi tea, mint tea, etc) and clear vegetable soups..

5. Concoction:

Mix Kutki (Scrophulariaceae), chitrak (Plumbago zeylonica) and trikatu in equal proportions. Mix well and have about ½ spoon of this mixture with warm water. You need to swish this mixture once and then swallow. Having it once a day willl help in loosing weight and having twice will help in fighting with obesity.

6. Herbs:

Other common herbs suggested in Ayurveda for weight loss include Haritaki, Bibhitaki, Amalaki, Licorice, Tulsi, Aloe Vera, Vrikshamla, etc. Most of these herbs are now available in capsule or tablet form for ease of use.

7. Ginger:

Consuming fresh ginger, with or without honey is also advised to burn fat in Ayurveda. You could have this in the morning, since it increases body heat which plays a main role burning fat.

8. Horse Gram:

Many Ayurvedic experts recommend for horse gram when you want to lose weight. You have to soak a cup of horse gram overnight, and boil it around morning. Once cooked, add chopped onions and rock salt for further taste. Take this for 45 days, without skipping even a single day! Follow this with a glass of buttermilk and see how fat is burned steadily.

9. Aloe Punch:

Another way is to prepare a drink with Aloe juice, turmeric powder, cumin powder, Tinospora cordifolia Powder and Terminalia Chebula Powder, in a glass of water. You can use warm water, as well. Add a spoon of honey to taste and drink it to see the further result. Wait for at least one hour, before eating anything. You can continue this drink till you lose an adequate weight.

10. Digestive Tea:

Take an equal amount of cumin seeds, coriander seeds and fennel seeds. About ½ spoon should do for one person. Now, add this to a bowl of water and bring it to boil. Close the lid and boil it for about five minutes. Transfer it into a flask and keep sipping it during the day. This tea will benefit with digestion and weight loss. Ayurveda advocates almost a vegan diet for staying fit and healthy. While they don’t advocate skipping meat altogether, consumption is considerably less. Besides, all processed foods and overcooked or fried foods are to be avoided. So start skipping refined salt and sugar and find natural and healthy substitutes like rock salt, honey, licorice extract, etc. When you follow these tips religiously, besides adopting the above given remedies that are available, weight management will become a reality.
