Udvartana

udvartanaUdvartana – ubtan, a treatment explained in Ayurvedic treatises is an ultimate remedy for many metabolic and lifestyle disorders.
We are all very well used to the sophistication of modern day life and food, we are in fact trapped in its fantasies and illusions, so much and so deep that we are held at the point of no return. We have deviated from the ethics and moralities of a holistic way of life.

We are consciously doing many mistakes which Ayurvedic people call Prajnaparadha. As a result we have become victims to many lifestyle and metabolic disorders which have become a challenge to the medical world. Obesity, Diabetes, High cholesterol, High blood pressure (Hypertension) are some of the modern day diseases which we have given origin to and they in return are haunting and hunting down the humanity.

 

Udvartana has been practised to perfection by Ayurvedic doctors for ages. It is an important therapy and mandatory inclusion in Ayurvedic obesity and slimming clinics and weight reduction programs. Udvartana is not limited just to treat obesity or address overweight issues; it is a remedy for wide array of problems. Udvartana has been included as a part of Dinacharya (daily healthy regimen) and can be done daily.
