The Importance of a Holistic Approach for Weight Loss

Unlike conventional weight loss methods that often focus solely on calorie restriction and intense exercise, naturopathy takes a holistic approach to weight loss. It recognizes that weight gain is often the result of imbalances in the body, such as hormonal issues, digestive problems, or chronic inflammation. By addressing these underlying imbalances, naturopathy aims to restore the body’s natural equilibrium and promote healthy weight loss.

One of the key principles of naturopathy is the belief in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Instead of relying on external interventions like medications or surgery, naturopathy harnesses the body’s own healing power through natural remedies and lifestyle modifications. This approach not only helps in weight loss but also improves overall health and vitality.

Identify The Root Cause

There are many causes which are contributing in your weight gain. First you have to identify those causes and make a list of them. While making a list make sure you add all the causes.

Here is the list of some causes that are contributing in your weight gain. You can add those causes directly in your list from here. And if you have some other causes also apart from my list then add them as welll.

Here is the List

1. Lowered Vitality : Food is not assimilating and eliminating properly

2. Abnormal Composition of Blood and Lymph : You might have high cholesterol, uric acid, urea, etc

3. Lack of Awareness : You might don’t know excess weight gain is a problem and consider yourself fit and healthy.

4. Sedentary Lifestyle : You don’t do much physical work and most of the time uses technology and machines for doing work. Like washing machine, motor vehicle, etc

5. Diet : You like variety of processed foods and a victim of temptation. You love eating biscuits, chips, chocolates, cakes, ice creams, and softdrinks etc. These food items are high in calories but low in nutrition. Which leads to weight gain.

6. Certain medicines : Like tricyclic antidepressants, anti-diabetics (sulfonylureas), anti-hypertensive (beta blockers), birth control pills, corticosteroids (prednisolone), anti-epileptics (sodium valporate), anti-allergic (fexofenadine), antipsychotics (clozapine)

7. Certain Diseases : Your weight gain might be a symptom of any disorder like hypothyroidism, cushing’s syndrome, depression, PCOS, etc.

8. Lack of Pre and Postnatal care : During and after pregnancy women take more physical rest and consume high calorific foods. It can be prevented by abdominal oil massage and wrapping with towel.

9. Psychological Factors : You might eat more if you are in chronic stress or depression.

10. Genetic factors : Check in your family, if your parents are obese then your chances of being obese is also there.

Check Your Weight and Height

If you have weighing machine at home then measure from home. If you don’t have weighing machine you can buy one it will be helpful for you in regular monitoring of weight during the weight loss journey.

I recommend buying mechanical weighing machine because it is better than digital one.

And if you don’t want to buy then you can visit any shop or clinic where weighing machine is free to use.

Now you know your weight and its time for checking your height

For checking your height you can make markings on wall with the scale or with measuring tape. Our if you can afford can buy height measuring tool for your home.

Important Note : Pay attention to this note, remember weight loss is not a miracle than can happen so quickly. It is a time taking process and need patience, continuity and determination.

It is a step ladder approach – Example if a person is 95 Kg on the first day and reduces 5 kg in a month. Then he or she should maintain that weight for 3 months at least. So that body will convince normal weight is 85 otherwise it will reverse back to 90 kg in no time.
