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

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.
