Infographic on Homeopathy for Weight Loss

Obesity is one big health issue that is a reason for distress for people of all age groups. If the popularity of slimming centers and continued patronage of weight loss pills and diet plans is any indication, then obesity is a huge problem. There is no miracle treatment for obesity, though homeopathy has been successfully employed as a mode of treatment for many years now in Europe and South Asia. The homeopathic treatment for losing weight is constitutional. It requires a detailed case history of the patient and its evaluation for selecting a suitable constitutional remedy. The main causes for weight gain include hypothyroidism, depression, slow activity of intestines, and sedentary life style. Women with polycystic ovarian disease and those around menopausal age are prone to weight gain. In this article various homeopathic medicines to loose weight are mentioned, but again the selection depends solely upon the constitution of the patient. There are no such things as homeopathic supplements for weight loss , neither is there any homeopathic diet for weight loss .

Do I need to Exercise and Control My Diet while using Homeopathic Medicines for Weight Loss ?

Exercise is very essential for weight loss . Homeopathic medicines for weight loss are no substitute for exercise. In Fact exercise along with homeopathic medicine can accentuate the weight loss. controlling diet is also must while using homeopathic medicines for weight loss. Low Carb diet is suggested with homeopathic medicines . Please note that homeopathic medicines are not ” fat dissolving ” by nature . They work by stimulating your body’s metabolism to burn more  fat.

Top 5 Homeopathic Medicines to Lose Weight

1. Homeopathic medicine Calcarea Carbonica for weight loss- This natural homeopathic medicine tops the list of homeopathic weight loss medicines. This medicine is mainly given when there is excess fat in the abdomen and the metabolism is working at a very low pace, resulting in obesity and weight gain. A patient requiring this medicine is fatty and flabby. In order to be eligible to use this medicine to lose weight, the constitutional symptoms shown by the patient are given utmost importance. For instance, the patients who require this medicine usually have a tendency to perspire profusely, especially on head. These patients cannot tolerate cold air. Certain peculiar eating habits are also found in these patients. The eating habits include craving for boiled eggs, and strange things like chalk, clay, pencils, lime etc. Due to a sluggish metabolic activity, the patients are almost always constipated. This medicine can also be considered if the excess weight gain is due to thyroid problems.

2. Natrum Mur: Homeopathic medicine Natrum Mur is also a significant remedy that is employed to lose weight. This medicine is recommended when there is an excess of fat mainly in the thighs and buttocks as compared to other parts of the body. This medicine gives wonderful results if the person has gained excess weight due to long continued stress or depression. The constitutional symptoms are always considered in case of this medicine as well. The important constitutional symptoms include excessive heat in the patient’s body and intolerance towards the heat of the sun. The patients who require this medicine usually suffer from anemia. Another important symptom seen in patients suited to this medicine is the craving for extra salts in diet. In essence, a person eligible for this medicine comes across as a person with weeping tendencies, especially when alone, worsens when someone consoles him / her and reserved nature.
3. Lycopodium: It is one of the most useful homeopathic remedies for fat loss . This is also used mainly when the thighs and buttock areas have excess fat, just like the above mentioned medicine Natrum Mur. But again the constitutional symptoms that are unique to using Lycopodium differentiate between these two. The patients who require Lycopodium are chronic sufferers of gastric troubles like flatulence and constipation. They have a tendency to crave for sweet foods. They also indulge in hot drinks and hot food. They show a tendency to eat far beyond their capacity with resulting bloated abdomen and weight gain. Mentally, the person requiring this medicine is very irritable and easily roused to anger, especially on being contradicted.
4. Nux Vomica: Homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica is recommended for persons who have gained excess weight due to sedentary habits. The first important symptom in persons requiring this medicine is that they are chronic sufferers of the most obstinate constipation. Such a person has a continuous urge to pass stool, but only a little stool is ejected at a time. The second symptom is intolerance to cold air. The third most important symptom is the eating habit – a person in need of Nux Vomica homeopathic medicine for losing weight likes spicy food, fatty food and stimulants like coffee or alcoholic drinks. Mentally, the person is extremely sensitive to external impressions and gets angry to an extreme degree too.
5. Antimonium Crudum: This is mainly a homeopathic medicine prescribed for obese children in order to help them lose weight. A suitable candidate for this medicine is a child who possesses extreme irritability, very cross nature, and an aversion to be touched or be looked at. These children also have a marked aversion to cold bathing. The significant indicator for using this medicine to lose weight is a craving for acidic things like pickles in the child. The child’s tongue in this case is usually thickly white coated and the stomach is deranged with alternate diarrhea and constipation due to a habit of over eating.

 Ignatia and Natrum Mur – Homeopathic Remedies for losing weight when depression has lead to obesity and excess weight gain.

Ignatia works effectively to decrease the weight in an overweight person when depression is the cause of weight gain. The persons requiring Ignatia usually eat to a great extent due to sadness, and consequently gain weight. They have very fickle mood that changes from sadness to happiness and from laughter to tears. Natrum Mur is prescribed to those overweight patients who weep a lot in depression and have an increased appetite.

Natural homeopathic medicines Calcarea Carb and Lycopodium for weight loss in persons who have gained excessive weight due hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism refers to a condition in which the thyroid gland of body that controls the metabolism becomes under-active. As a result, various problems arise in the body owing to a sluggish metabolism; weight gain is a major health concern out of these problems. Weight loss in persons with hypothyroid through homeopathy depends on the basic constitution. The above mentioned medicines can be of great help in reducing weight. The constitution of persons requiring Calcarea Carb is fatty and flabby. Such persons are sensitive to cold and have profuse sweating, especially on head. The patients requiring Lycopodium, on the other hand, have weight problems along with gastric troubles. The gastric troubles may include constipation or excessive flatulence in the abdomen. Such patients may also show a strong craving for sweets and hot drinks.

 Alumina and Nux Vomica- Homeopathic Remedies for Obesity  when Intestinal Functioning could be the Reason

In this case, all the medicines mentioned above efficiently aid weight loss but the selection of the proper medicine depends upon the individual symptoms presented by the patient. The persons requiring Alumina have constipation and they go many days without passing stool. In fact, they do not have an urge to pass stool for many days. This is because their intestines work at a slower pace. The second homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica suits those over weight persons who are constipated but the urge to pass stool is very frequent. The stool passed out of the body is insufficient and unsatisfactory.

 Graphites and Sepia- Homeopathic Remedies for weight loss in women who have gained excess weight around menopause.

Menopause is a stage where the monthly cycles end in a woman; this period basically marks a cessation of reproductive ability in women. The Hormonal changes that take place at this stage are responsible for weight gain in menopausal women. The women experience bulkiness and heaviness in their body. Graphites and Sepia are both natural homeopathic medicines that help menopausal women lose weight without any side effects. Graphites for weight loss -Graphites mainly suits women who remain sad, cannot tolerate cold air and suffer from chronic constipation. Sepia suits women who are irritable and indifferent in behavior towards their family. These women may also complain of hot flushes. A prominent feature that serves as a clear indicator that Sepia is required for treatment is a bearing down sensations in pelvic organs of the woman.

Homeopathic medicines Calcarea Carb, Natrum Mur, Pulsatilla and Sepia for weight loss in obese women who suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Women suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Disease mainly face problems such as suppression of the periods and weight gain. Calcarea carb, Natrum Mur, Pulsatilla and Sepia can all be used as natural homeopathic medicines for weight loss in this case. The medicine is selected after proper evaluation of the case history provided by the patient.

 Natrum Mur and Lycopodium- Homeopathic Remedies for weight loss in overweight persons having excess fat in thigh and buttock area

Both Natrum Mur and Lycopodium are natural homeopathic medicines for weight loss that help overweight persons with excess fat deposits in thigh and buttocks. The constitution of the patient suggests the selection of the medicine out of these two. Some important features that stand prominent to select Natrum Mur are excess heated sensation, craving for salted food and reserved nature. For the selection of Lycopodium, the few guiding symptoms are excessive flatulence in abdomen, craving for sweets and hot drinks, and irritable nature.

Homeopathic medicines Ammonium Carb and Antimonium Crudum for weight loss in overweight persons having excess fat in the upper body as compared to legs that are usually thin.

Homeopathic medicine Ammonium Carb works well for obese persons who are sluggish and always feel tired and weak. These people usually have a sedentary life style. They also show marked sensitivity to cold air. The homeopathic medicine Antimonium Crudum suits people with a habit of eating far beyond their capacity. They usual suffer from gastric troubles. Alternate loose stool and constipated stool are often their common complains. Thickly white coated tongue is a prominent symptom in persons requiring this medicine.

Antimonium Crudum, Baryta Carb and Calcarea Carb- Homeopathic Medicines for weight loss in obese children

To select the suitable medicine out of above mentioned medicines for overweight children, the entire constitution of child is taken into consideration. Homeopathic medicine Antimonium Crudum suits those obese children who are very irritable and cross. Such children are in a habit of over eating and generally crave pickles in diet. The next medicine, Baryta Carb, suits those obese children who are timid and dull. They are mentally and physically dwarfish, and also have tendency to catch cold easily and suffer from recurrent throat infections. The last homeopathic medicine, Calcarea carb, is mainly given to fatty and flabby children. The constitutional symptoms indicating its use are sensitivity to cold environment and excessive perspiration on head. Another prominent guiding feature indicating the need of this medicine is a craving for boiled eggs and indigestible things like chalk and pencils.

    I am 56 years old, with moderately active lifestyle. I do play badminton for about an hour in the morning thereafter my work requires long sitting. Am a vegetarian, non smoker and a teetotaler . Apart from flabby with low strength in muscles I have always been on the weaker side in libido with shriveled penis and urination stream being on the weaker side too. Am though having two sons and these I am quoting just as indicative symptoms to you. From the above selection I think Calc. Carb & Lyco are better suited than others. What potency should I use them in and for what duration? Also would adding Acid Phos give any better result ?
