Weight loss is the global need now a days. owing to increased food intake and lack of exercise, change in diet habits are cause for the obesity. Increased economy in middle class families  in developing countries  is also one of the major factor which lead into consumption of fatty food substances ultimately lead into weight gain. This article is aimed in providing information on weight loss and best Natural Homeopathic remedies which help in treating weight loss.

Obesity is almost invariable in developing countries and almost all people accumulate some fat as they get older. The World Health Organization also acknowledges that obesity (body mass index > 30 kg/m2) is a world-wide problem which also affects many developing countries. Obesity implies an excess storage of fat, and this can most easily be detected by looking at the undressed patient.

Obesity Causes and Risks

Obesity is widely regarded as a pandemic with potentially disastrous consequences for human health. More than 20% of adults in the UK, and more than 30% in USA, are obese (i.e. body mass index, BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2, ). The prevalence of obesity has increased ∼threefold within the last 20 years and continues to rise. In developing countries, average national rates of obesity are not nearly so high, but these figures disguise alarmingly high rates of obesity in many urban communities.

Causes for Obesity:
Accumulation of fat results from a discrepancy between energy consumption and expenditure over and above that which can be compensated for by hypothalamic regulation of basal metabolic rate (BMR). A small daily excess consumption of only 0.2-0.8 MJ (50-200 kcal; 10% of intake) can lead to a weight gain of 2-20 kg over a period of 4-10 years. Given the cumulative effects of subtle energy excess, body fat content shows ‘tracking’ with age, such that individuals are likely to maintain their rank in the age-adjusted population distribution throughout their lives. Thus obese children are very likely to become obese adults. Weight tends to increase throughout adult life, as BMR and physical activity decrease

Conditions in which obesity is an associated feature: 

  •  Genetic syndromes associated with hypogonadism (e.g. Prader-Willi syndrome, Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome) 
  •  Hypothyroidism 
  •  Cushing’s syndrome 
  •  Stein-Leventhal syndrome 
  •  Drug-induced (e.g. corticosteroids) 
  •  Hypothalamic damage (e.g. due to trauma, tumour) 
SOME REASONS FOR THE INCREASING PREVALENCE OF OBESITY-THE ‘OBESOGENIC’ ENVIRONMENT 
 Increasing energy intake 
 ↑ Portion sizes 
 ↑ Snacking and loss of regular meals 
 ↑ Energy-dense food (mainly fat) 
 ↑ Affluence 
 Decreasing energy expenditure 
 ↑ Car ownership 
 ↓ Walking to school/work 
 ↑ Automation; ↓ manual labour 
 ↓ Sports in schools 
 ↑ Time spent on video games and watching TV 
 ↑ Central heating

Weight loss Treatment : 
Dietary control : 
This largely depends on a reduction in calorie intake.  
The most common diets allow a daily intake of approximately 4200 kJ (1000 kcal), although this may need to be nearer 6300 kJ (1500 kcal) for someone engaged in physical work. Very low calorie diets are also advocated by some, usually over shorter periods of time, but unless they are accompanied by changes in lifestyle, weight regain is likely. Patients must realize that prolonged dieting is necessary for large amounts of fat to be lost. Furthermore, a permanent change in eating habits is required to maintain the new low weight. It is relatively easy for most people to lose the first few kilograms, but long-term success in moderate obesity is poor, with an overall success rate of no more than 10%.  
Many dietary regimens aim to produce a weight loss of approximately 1 kg per week. Weight loss will be greater initially owing to accompanying protein and glycogen breakdown and consequent water loss. After 3-4 weeks, incremental weight loss may be very small because only adipose tissue is broken down and there is less accompanying water loss.  
Drug therapy for Weight loss:
Drugs can be used in the short term (up to 3 months) as an adjunct to the dietary regimen, but they do not substitute for strict dieting.  
Centrally acting drugs:  
Drugs acting on the noradrenergic pathways do suppress appetite but all have been withdrawn in the UK because of cardiovascular side-effects.
Drugs acting on both serotoninergic and noradrenergic pathways, e.g. sibutramine. 
Peripherally acting drugs for Weight loss:  
Orlistat is an inhibitor of pancreatic and gastric lipases. It reduces dietary fat absorption and aids weight loss. Weight regain occurs after the drug is stopped. It has been used continuously in a large-scale trial for up to 2 years. The patients may complain of diarrhoea during treatment and to avoid this take a low-fat diet resulting in weight loss.  
A recent systematic review on long-term pharmacotherapy concluded that there was a paucity of long-term studies with antiobesity agents, and that in weight loss trials of 1-year duration, orlistat and sibutramine appear to be only modestly effective in promoting weight loss (2.7 and 4.3 kg greater weight loss respectively than the control group).  

Homeopathic Natural Remedies for Weight loss:
Graphites is the Natural Homeopathic Remedy for weight loss both in women and men:
      A physician, name forgotten, once said that whenever a woman was fat and rather coarse in skin and physical characteristics, Graphites 3x was one of the remedies she surely needed, and one that would help her condition, though it might not reduce her weight. Possibly the same remedy applies to men. Two doses. 5 tablets, a day, for a week or two. Pokeberries Years ago a physician in Western Pennsylvania wrote several letters to a medical journal strongly advocating the use of the frosted pockeberry Phytolacca berry as the best means of reducing fat with no injury to the health. The poke root from which the Phytolacca tincture is derived is poisonous, but the frosted berries do not possess any deleterious qualities. Birds feed on them and are healthy, but never fat when these berries are their food. This was the basis of his treatment, which is also said to be useful in cases of fat oppression and of the rheumatism that some times affects the overly obese. Some persons say that this treatment has cured their dyspepsia. Some pharmacists have this juice in tablet form, each tablet representing 1 drop of the juice.

Kali Carb is a Natural Homeopathic Remedy for Weight loss when obesity associated with Nose and Throat Symptoms:
      It is indicated in Coryza, with hoarseness or loss of voice. The patient catches cold art every little exposure to the fresh air- a very strong symptom. Associated with these, there are often a sensation in the throat, as though there were a lump there, which must be swallowed. Stinging pains in the throat when swallowing [Apis]. The patient has a tendency to obesity and is rather weak in muscular development. It is also indicated in a more chronic form, when the nasal passages are obstructed, and the patient can only breathe with mouth open. The obstruction is in open air, but returns as soon as the patient enters a warm room. The discharge is either foetid green mucus or in the morning the nose is swollen and red, and there is a bloody discharge. There is a sticking sensation in the pharynx, as from a fish -bone lodged there, whenever the patient is cold-a good symptom for Kali Carb.

Asafoetida is a Natural Homeopathic Remedy for Weight loss when Bone disease are present.
      Inflammation and caries of the bones, involving the soft parts, with ulcers with hardened edges; softening of the bones with easy bleeding; skin adheres to the bones: ULCERS INTOLERABLY SENSITIVE TO TOUCH AROUND EDGES and easily bleeding;pus thin, foetid and offensive, curvature of bones, drawing pains in jaws and copious salivation after abuse of mercury; neuralgia of the stump after amputation (Cepa); obesity, suits heavy, bloated people with bone diseases.

      Palpitation of debility, obesity or fatty heart; nervous palpitations in hysterical people; heartbeat feeble or imperceptible; PERNICIOUS ANAEMIA; haemorrhagic diathesis.

Weight loss Natural Homeopathic tips from Dr.John H.Clarke.
      With some persons the increase of fatty tissue becomes so great as to amount to positive disease. This may be combated in various ways.
      General Treatment.-Open-air exercise should be taken regularly. The freest ventilation should be secured in the house. Meals should be taken regularly, three times a day, and foods rich in fat, starch, or sugar should be avoided or taken sparingly. An exclusive raw-fruit diet will rapidly decrease weight. For example-Breakfast; oranges and bananas. Lunch: apples and tomatoes. Tea: oranges. Dinner: apples, bananas, melons. Almonds may be added. No drink of any kind to be taken.
      Medicines.-The medicine most commonly useful in this condition is
      Phosphorus 3. 
      After a course of this, Calc. carb. 6 should be tried. After this Arsen. 3.
