Dr. Ehsan Rauf*, Dr. Maqbool Ahmad Khan, Dr. Z. H. Siddiqui, Dr. Jamal Akhtar, Dr. Mohd Tarique

ABSTRACT

Obesity is a state of excess adipose tissue mass. Although often viewed as equivalent to increased body weight, this need not be the case—lean but very muscular individuals may be overweight by numerical standards without having increased adiposity. Body weights are distributed continuously in populations, so that choice of a medically meaningful distinction between lean and obese is somewhat arbitrary. Obesity is therefore more effectively defined by assessing its linkage to morbidity or mortality. The high intake of calories is the most important factor responsible for obesity. The body needs a good number of calories to fulfill the need of the body. It is achieved from food we take. In some condition the intake is higher than consumption which results accumulation of excess fat/fluids/humors inside the body. In Unani system of Medicine obesity has been defined as Siman Mufrit. The excess calories are burnt through exercise otherwise the excess material is deposited in form of different shapes and the person faces various diseases. In Unani System of Medicine, various single and compound drugs are prescribed for obesity. A part from single and compound Unani drugs a Unique therapy in Unani Medcine, Ilaj bit Tadbeer (Regimenal Therapy) is beneficial especially Riyazat (Exercise), Dalk (Massage), Fasd (Venesection).

Keywords: Siman Mufrit, Riyazat, Ilaj bit Tadbeer.
