Obesity (Medoroga) is the medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it creates a negative effect on the body. Obesity is no longer a rare disease and the prevalence is increasing at an alarming rate. Obese patients are more vulnerable to heart diseases, strokes and depression.

Yoga is an Ayurvedic technique mostly recommended for treating obesity. The Ayurvedic approach to drugs is thoroughly different from the other treatments we have been used to. Herbal supplements can be an effective treatment for treating obesity without the negative effects of conventional drugs. A strict diet can avoid the obesity problems to a certain extent, but the fat has to be treated and the defective metabolism must be corrected, which is done by Ayurvedic medicines. The Ayurvedic medication can improve fat metabolism in an obese patient. At one time person’s metabolism is correct, it is comfortable for him to hold his weight.
