Obesity is a condition where excess fat is accumulated in the body, on the other hand being overweight means a person has too much weight from the bone, muscles, or body water. Obesity in terms of fat accumulation is caused by;
- Consuming too many calories
- Living a sedentary life
- Lack of adequate sleep
- Slow metabolism
The rate of obesity is measured by the Body Mass Index (BMI), a statistical measurement of the height and weight of a person, however, the BMI is not a reliable measure of obesity since the person may be overweight as a result of heavy bones, body water or muscle mass.
Obesity increases the risk of many life-threatening diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart diseases, osteoarthritis and many more.
NATURAL TREATMENT OF OBESITY.
When tackling obesity, the fastest way to lose up to 10kg is by detoxification. This involves the cleansing of many organs such as the liver, stomach, intestines, and the colon. It rids the body of stored undigested food particles, fat, and water. The best herbs for the liver are dandelion, milk thistle, bitter-leaf, aloe vera and lemon.
For the stomach use common plantain, aloes, nettles, cassia, and other simple fruits and vegetables. Herbs for kidney detox are mistletoes, carrots, onions, juniper berries, kidney beans, pineapple, etc. For colon cleansing use parsley, Senna, fennel, psyllium and bitter-leaf.
Apart from weight loss, a 3-days cleansing program will eliminate mucus which is a source of polyps, cysts, tumors, and allergies in the body. After absorption by the liver, toxic materials and other metabolic wastes are excreted through the kidney.
To start a 3-day detox,
- Drink a glass of lemon water first thing in the morning to draw in toxic materials from all parts of the bowel before elimination.
- Take a teaspoon of olive oil 3 times a day to lubricate the bile and liver ducts.
- Drink at least 2 quarts of fruit juice daily during the cleansing program to prevent dehydration. Choose either carrot, tomatoes, orange, grape, or apples, whatever fruit is chosen should be used throughout the 3 days.
During the process, eat nothing for the 3 days except those fruits. Chew thoroughly. Twice a day, take an infusion of any detox teas like parsley, common plantain, aloes, etc to avoid constipation. After 3 days, approximately 3 gallons of toxins will be eliminated from the lymphatic system and replaced by 3 gallons of alkaline juices. And you will lose over 10kg without stress.
