There are different health risks associated with being overweight e.g. type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, osteoarthritis etc. Ayurveda gives 4 ways to help shed those extra kilos.

1. Detox: Virechana is a panchakarma procedure used to detox your body. In the process, body also sheds extra kilos. Being sincere with the treatment is the key here.

2. Powder massage: Udwarthana is special therapeutic deep tissue massage using herbal powders. The friction of the paste on the skin during the massage opens the pores, removes blockages in the blood vessels, increases the heat in the tissues, and stimulates fat metabolism.

3. Diet and lifestyle changes: You are what you eat. So choosing right food is very important. Timely food, going early to bed are simplest ways to remain healthy.

4. Yoga and pranayama: Yoga and pranayama energize the system, this way body is not just dependent on food to remain energized. Yoga and pranayama help to bring control over your cravings.
