Yes, and very successfully. Obesity is caused mainly due to a imbalance in the Kapha dosha. When Ayurvedic wisdom is applied to the life of an ‘obese person’, they gain insight into why and how they created and hold on to their Kapha imbalance (manifesting as obesity). They now learn about how they can take back control of their increasing Kapha. They learn about Kapha balancing foods, specialized Kapha reducing exercises, essential oils, self massage, gentle detoxification, herbs and colors. The over-expressed Kapha can linger on due to certain ‘heavy’ thought patterns also. Hence a total shift in paradigm is gradually brought about in the living and thinking of an obese person. When the recommendations are followed sincerely, one can expect to lose weight.
