Obesity and its subsequent impact is one of the primary health epidemics facing us today. Ayurveda seeks to find and treat the root cause of weight gain to completely re-balance and restore healthy functioning to your body.

Ayurvedic tradition has found that unless weight loss is approached holistically, imbalances will remain within the system making long term, sustained health very difficult. Instead of merely suggesting a ‘one size fits all’ eating plan, Ayurveda takes an individualised approach that takes into account:

  • Your Ayurvedic body type
  • The impact different foods have on your body
  • The role of your current lifestyle and routines on your weight

From here, a treatment plan to help re-balance the system, improve digestion and eliminate toxins and fat can be designed. This treatment plan combines a number of traditional Ayurvedic therapies

To effectively promote weight loss with Ayurveda, you will work closely alongside one of our Ayurvedic doctors or consultants to diagnose exactly what is happening within your body. A variety of tools is utilised to form a thorough diagnosis, which then informs treatment. The treatment protocol will focus on restoring the balance of the body and the normal, healthy functioning of the tissues.

The treatment protocol will focus on:

  • Removing the build up of toxins within the body
  • Improving nutrition and digestive function
  • Lowering stress levels and supporting the nervous system
  • Strengthening the bodies ability to heal

This four-pronged approach works beyond the surface systems to completely overhaul your health and wellbeing at a deeper level and may involve:

  • Lifestyle modification
  • Counselling
  • Prescription of kitchen and medicinal herbal medicines
  • Instruction in gentle yoga postures and breathing exercises
  • Prescription of Ayurvedic rejuvenative massage and detoxing treatments
