Side Effects of being obese

Not looking good, heavy and flabby body and low self esteem- these are told to be the side effects of the obesity and you would have been asked to shed some extra pounds for these only. But things are not that simple. Things are really complicated.

Let’s have a look on Ayurvedic approach on Obesity. According to Ayurveda body has different levels of nutrition and nourishment and these steps follow one by another. All this happens in a series and whenever and wherever this chain is discontinued it results in the failure of the next steps of the body. This particular series is-

Rasa (Plasma), Rakta (Blood), Mamsa (Muscles), Medas (Fatty Tissue), Asthi (Bony tissue), Majja (Marrow) and Shukr (The fertility capability)!

Here it is clear that Medas, the fatty tissue is half the way, three before and three after this are there. According to principles of Ayurveda once there is some problem with a level, nutrition and nourishment won’t reach the next level properly so there will be abundance on the precursor levels and scarcity on the following levels. So the theorem should be like this.

  • Rasa, Rakta and Mamsa – these three will be increased above level/
  • Medas- Increased and blocking the nutrition to the next levels.
  • Asthi, Majja and Shukr- decreased due to lack of nutrition.

Rasa, resembles to the plasma or fluids of the body and this is very common to know about that in obesity there will be a lot of water retention. This all water retention is all due to the abundance of the nutrients on one side and lack of possibilities to cross these nutrients from one end to another. This imbalance creates the problems with the buffer system of the body and leaves body overloaded with the fluids.

Rakta and Mamsa: There are certain chances of a person of being anemic but never deprive of the muscles in anyway. The muscular percent will be low in comparison to the fats in the body but there won’t be any deprivation of the muscles in the body. The level of blood is directly proportionate to the level of plasma so it increases. Secondly when we are talking about increase- this is volumetric increase not really the quality wise and same will be applicable with the rest of the Dhatus on other side of the equation.

Asthi: This is the next to fatty tissues according to Ayurveda and this is commonly seen that obese people visits hospitals primarily for the condition of osteoporosis. This is really common to see the disabilities of bones in obese people. Reason is very simple as per Ayurveda that bones never get proper attention in terms of nutrition and it causes problems with the body.

Majja: This is considered as a space occupying material inside the bones. This is white and red bone marrow on one side and on other hand it also represents the brain. When we discussed the Rakta it was cleared that quality of blood won’t be that high and here is the reason. RBCs and WBCs are made by red and white bone marrows respectively and when production houses are not in good conditions how can be products.

When we say brain and spinal cord- it is now evident to some percentile that Brain shrinking is common with the people who are obese.

Shukr: Infertility is the commonest issue associated with the obesity. The graph of infertility is directly proportionate to the graph of obesity. When we wish to clear the things as per modern medical sciences we can find there are many hormones which are responsible for this kind of complications.

Here it is clear that obesity is too much dangerous for the body and it impacts quality of the life on a whole and this is the simplest reason that you should shed some extra kilos soon. Cosmetics cannot be the primary reason for doing all this and when someone does it for cosmetic reasons it brings a lot of complications in life.
