Abstract

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health. Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnoea, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and depression. Obesity is one of the most common yet most neglected public health problems in developed and developing countries, obesity is more common among the highly educated. Globally one in six adults are obese and nearly 2.8 million individuals die each year due to overweight or obesity. In classics Sthoulya is mentioned under Santarpanjanya Vikara. This is a single case study on the effective management of Vamana karma in Atisthoulya. Our classics have contraindicated Vamana karma in Atishoulya but according to the conditions even the contraindicated procedures can be done under favorable circumstances. Treatment was planned with Deepana-Pachana, Shodhananga Snehapana with Varunadi Ghrita, and Vamana Karma with Madanphaladi Yoga. After completion of Panchakarma treatment, there was a significant reduction in signs and symptoms of Atisthoulya and a reduction in weight up to 7 kgs. On the basis of results obtained it can be concluded that Vamana karma can be considered as an effective treatment in the management of Atisthoulya.
