Therapy @ Samhita for Obesity
- Obesity, mentioned as "Adi Stula-Rogam" in Siddha literature, is due to excess of Kapha dosha.
Suggestions from Dr. J
- A decoction made from the coarse powder of Salacia oblonga ( Ponkoranti ) is taken internally for balancing the excess Kapha.
- Podithimirdhal ( Physical Manipulation Therapy ) followed by Steam bath opens the pores in the skin & stimulates fat metabolism.
- Dynamic Suryanamaskar, considered to be "the crest jewel of exercises" keeps the body strong, supple, agile & healthy.
