Vd. Radhika Taware* and Vd. Y. R. Patil

.

Abstract

Obesity has been mentioned as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that might affect health, which can be compared with Sthaulya mentioned in Ayurvedic classes. Sthaulya has been mentioned by Acharya Charak among Ashtauninditiya Pursha. Obesity has become an epidemic today and it is essential to understand the effect of Obesity sites. Obesity is a common lifestyle / metabolic disorder of males and females both. The prevalence of obesity is higher in urban areas than in rural populations of India, due to the sedentary lifestyle and overeating habit. Sthaulya is a disease afflicting “Medovaha Srotas'' in the form of Ayushohrasa, Javoparodha, Kriccha Vyavaya, Daurbalya, Daurgandhya.[1] It is included in Ashtauninditiya Pursha which is revealed by symptoms of General lassitude, Day time hypersomnalism, Protuberant abdomen, Menstrual disturbance and sterility in fatty female, etc. These features can be correlated closely to Obesity.[1] Udvartan is narrated in many Samhitas as a part of dinacharya (daily regime of personal hygiene) and part of treatment for obesity & emaciation and many dermatological diseases. It is a very significant procedure in panchakarma.
