A PRECISE KNOWLEDGE SHARED BY Dr. Mukesh Bhatia about undedrweight

Underweight can also be disease, though in our culture it is not always recognized as such. Lack of body weight can cause poor resistance, low vitality, nervousness, irritability. There will be lack of appetite (desire to eat food), depression, malaise (feeling of general discomfort or uneasiness) and psychological instability.

There may be wasting away of tissues including loss of hair, falling of teeth, weakness of bones and lack of sexual vitality as well as other signs of premature aging.

Underweight Treatment in Ayurveda 
Causes are frequently constitutional. Undue(excessive) suppression of the digestive  fire –too much fasting, dieting, or too much eating of light , cold or raw food, irregular eating habits, etc.   –can contribute.

Other factors include overwork, too much exercise and excessive sexual activity. Psychological factors are worry and grief (often following loss of a loved one), excessive study and too much mental activity.

Low weight may also be involved in convalescence from a severe disease that has depleted the body tissues. It may occur more commonly in the elderly or in the children. Treatment involves an increasing or tonification therapy. Heavy rich nutritive diet is taken along with tonic, building herbs.

Underweight is a usually a vata condition, as air type tend towards lightness. Vata individuals often forget to eat or their irregular eating habits cause long term suppression of the digestive fire. Use of stimulant drug such as amphetamines can bring about the same condition.

Treatment for Underweight

An anti vata diet is usually the best. Meat and fish are helpful or other heavy food like root vegetables, whole grains, nuts, dairy, oils and sugar.

Spices are indicated but not necessarily in the beginning treatment. The hotter spices in particular may cause further depletion of vital fluids by their drying nature and overstimulate what is usually already a hyper metabolism.

Tonic herbs are essential: ashwagandha, shatavari, bala, licorice prepared in milk.
 Ayurveda formulas are:
  • Ashwagandha compound
  • Shatawari compound
  • Dhatupustik compound
  • Chyvanprash
Additional western herbs include comfrey root, slippery elm, marshmallow and saw palmetto. Chinese herbs are ginseng, astragalus , dang gui and rehmannia; formulas include Ten Major Tonic.
