Hello doctor,

What is the treatment for weight loss in panchakarma?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

The panchakarma procedure to lose weight is Vaman therapy and Virechan therapy. Panchkarma is a detoxification therapy that will help to detoxify your body. Your BMI is in the obese category so you should definitely go for panchakarma therapy. But you can not perform it on your own because before panchakarma therapy there is oleation therapy and you have to follow a special lifestyle and after panchakarma therapy, you have to follow a special diet. So you can go to a nearby panchakarma center and ask your doctor for proper treatment. I hope you are satisfied with my answer. For more queries, you can consult me.

Thank you.

Regarding follow up:

Follow-up after four weeks.
