Dr. Manish Arora*, Dr. Darishisha L. Suting and Dr. R. P. Patwardhan

ABSTRACT

Childhood obesity has emerged as growing epidemic both in developed as well as in developing countries in last few decades, affecting all socio-economic groups, irrespective of age, sex or ethnicity. Globally, an estimated 10 percent children, between 5 to 17 years of age, are overweight or obese. Data from various parts of India reveals that in Delhi and Chandigarh, one in every four teenagers is obese, while a study of school children in Chennai shows 18 percent boys and 16 per cent girls are overweight. Reduced physical activity in young children is one of the important factors in childhood obesity. Moderate intensity regular physical activity is essential for the prevention of overweight and obesity as well as for treatment of the same. Ayurveda explains vyayama (Exercise) as one of the important Dinacharya procedure (daily regimen) to be followed by every healthy individual for maintenance of health and prevention of diseases. Acharya Charaka while explaining treatment of Atisthaulya (obesity) mentioned the use of vyayama in the management of obesity. Acharya Sushruta highlights importance of vyayama as there is nothing equal to vyayama that can reduce bulkiness (plumpness) of the body.

Keywords: Vyayama, Exercise, Childhood obesity, Physical activity.
