Symptoms of Obesity

The symptoms of obesity are an increase in weight, elevated BMI level, increase in abdominal girth, disproportionate physical features, and secondary medical complications.

Natural Cures

The only real and long-lasting way to cure obesity is through regular exercise and eating a well-balanced and healthy diet. However, medical intervention is needed in some extreme cases, and morbidly obese individuals must be put on medication or undergo an operation to remove their excess body fat.

It is best to prevent obesity. Try some of the following preventive measures:

Add more fruits, vegetables, and legumes to your daily diet. Reduce the intake of fatty foods, sugars, and processed foods. Avoid overeating and eat only when hungry.
Avoid creamy salad dressings, rich condiments on sandwiches, and extra cheese in your food.
Do any form of physical activity. Walking, jogging, swimming, or even playing with your children are ways to be physically active.
Be a sensible eater. Train your mind to resist temptation when you are trying to lose weight and consider counseling or therapy if necessary.
Listen to your body. Are you really hungry or you are eating just because you have nothing better to do? Reach out for that tall drink of water next time you feel a hunger pang because you may not even be hungry. Many people wrongly mistake thirst for a hunger pang and eat when the body is actually thirsty. Drink water or other healthy beverages like broths and soups and avoid sugary drinks, carbonated beverages, and creamy milk shakes.
Snack on carrot sticks and celery instead of potato chips. Keep almonds and walnuts in a close vicinity so that next time you feel like snacking, you can reach out for a handful of heart-healthy nuts instead of candies.
Grill, roast, bake, or steam your food instead of frying or cooking it with oil or butter.
Educate yourself. Learn as much as you can about eating healthy and living well.

Herbal Cures

Try some of the following herbal remedies to control your hunger pangs and eventually treat obesity. However, remember not to exclusively depend on these herbal cures. The only real way to cure obesity is through lifestyle changes and healthy living habits.


Dandelion is renowned for its diuretic and laxative properties and helps the kidneys eliminate toxins. It is rich in potassium and can aid in lowering high blood pressure. It also helps to aid in digestion and improve blood circulation. For weight loss, infuse four to ten grams of dried dandelion leaf in water and consume it twice each day. Fresh leaves can be eaten raw in salads.

Green Tea

Antioxidant-rich green tea helps to lower the levels of glucose (sugars), lipids (fats), and cholesterol in the blood. It also helps to improve the metabolism of glucose and lipids and aids in weight loss. This herbal remedy can be taken in the form of capsules (supplements) or brewed and consumed instead of regular tea or coffee.


Fennel seeds are rich in fiber and can be used for treating obesity. Fennel acts as an appetite suppressant and aids in regularizing bowel movements. It can also be used to treat digestive disorders such as indigestion and flatulence. Steep fennel seeds in hot water to make a soothing tea and sip it throughout the day. Chewing a few fennel seeds after meals is also a good strategy.
