The beauty of Ayurvedic treatment for obesity and weight loss is that it produces weight loss without adversely affecting the physiology and does not cause side effects. A special herbal massage called as Udvartana prevents sagging of the skin as it gradually regains its elasticity and adjusts to the weight loss. Whereas, other rapid weight loss programs with severe diet restrictions without adequate exercise programs or special massages have been known to be unsustainable. Most people regain the lost weight very soon and sometimes even gain more weight. Ayurveda specializes in detoxification.
