It is gentle on the body and goes to the root of the problem, thus reducing weight and offering fast weight loss. This is because calories are burned faster by speeding up the metabolic rate.  There are over 200 homeopathic remedies for obesity. The choice of remedy is based on the medical history of the patient. What’s more, every individual is given customized homeopathic treatment based on their symptoms, body type and medical problem.

However, this medicine is given to obese patients who also have thyroid problems.
  • Nutritional Therapy - Food intake is closely related to obesity and nutritional therapy involves eating differently and not eating less. The calories eaten everyday should mostly comprise of carbohydrates, less than a quarter on fats and the remainder on proteins. Proteins and carbohydrates supply four calories per gram and fat provides nine. Other foods that should be incorporated should include high-fiber, unrefined complex carbohydrates like whole grains, raw fruits and partially cooked vegetables. Refined carbohydrates like white flour and sugar should be avoided. Many natural doctors recommend limiting foods from animal sources to egg whites and non-fat dairy sources.

Home Remedies

The most important step to prevent binging and overeating is to never skip meals, especially breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and helps in providing a steady stream of energy throughout the day. Don’t eat snacks in between meals. Instead of eating 2-3 full meals a days, shift to 4-5 small meals a day. You will start adapting to a reduced diet and also increase the metabolic rate in your body. The other better option is physical exercise. Brisk walking or slow jogging is the best exercise to begin with. You can work out for at least 30mins to an hour every day. Burn up unwanted calories by doing chores around the house.

Do not forget that it is important to consult a professional Homeopathic Practitioner before taking homeopathic medicines of any kind. Only then will you find safe and long lasting cure for a health problem like obesity. There is no miracle cure for obesity as it takes the right kind of holistic treatment over a period of time to overcome the problem.
