HOMOEOPATHY FOR OBESITY
Obesity is a complex disorder that involves having too much body fat; it’s not just an aesthetic issue; it also raises your risk of developing diseases and health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease.
Extreme obesity increases your risk of developing weight-related health issues.
The good news is that diet changes, increased physical activity, and behavior changes can all help you lose weight, and even modest weight loss can improve or prevent the health issues linked to obesity.
Causes–Obesity is a condition in which you consume more calories than you burn through exercise and daily activities, leading to the storage of these extra calories as fat, despite the fact that genetic, behavioral, and hormonal factors also play a role in body weight.
Occasionally, medical conditions like Cushing’s syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and other illnesses and conditions can be linked to obesity; however, these conditions are uncommon, and the main factors that contribute to obesity are, in general:
Inactivity.You don’t burn as many calories if you don’t move around a lot, and if you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you can easily consume more calories each day than you expend through exercise and daily activities.
Unhealthy diet and eating habits.Most Americans’ diets are too high in calories and full of fast food and high-calorie beverages, which makes weight gain inevitable if you regularly consume more calories than you burn.
Body mass index (BMI), which is determined by dividing your weight in kilograms (kg) by your height in meters (m) squared, is used to diagnose obesity when it is 30 or higher.
Obese (Class I)
Obese (Class II)
40.0 and higher
Extreme obesity (Class III)
