Obese people spend their entire lives in a desperate attempt to lose weight. The problem however is in a deep emotional disorder masquerading as an exaggerated need to eat. Consciousness of the body, having a strong fear of lack of love in the future, store and convert each gram of fat in food, because it is the way in which a body ensures the existence of reserves.

When overweight people comply with a strict diet, they become so dissatisfied after several weeks of heroic efforts during fasting that having lost five or ten pounds they begin to gain weight and recover the original in a few months or even more quickly.

In this case, homeopathy can do a very good job as it carefully and gently works on different aspects of problems, including overeating and excess weight.
Individually chosen homeopathic remedies help to normalize the psyche and relieve bouts of hunger, improve your mood and to increase the overall energy of the body.

As a homeopath I treat as important not only the symptoms but also the feelings and thoughts of a patient, his or her dreams, preferences and eating habits.
From a huge arsenal of homeopathic remedies often used for increased appetite and obesity, I prescribe the ones that are most appropriate for a person at this stage of life.

For example, when a person is irresistibly drawn to sweets, you may need to apply one drug, but if a stressed patient always wants salt (the excessive salt intake is also responsible for the retention of liquids and cellulite) the other remedy is prescribed, when dealing with a headache, which goes away only after an intake of food, a third type of remedy can help.

Often one is faced with headaches, which go away only after a food intake – in such a case a third type of medicine can help.
There are some homeopathic remedies prescribed for a hunger after heavy menses, when faced with obesity with decreased thyroid function and others for instances of an increased appetite during stress.
Even with a moderate appetite a body size may increase if there is a tendency to be overweight. If a woman is gaining weight she often feels cold, sluggish and slow, and gets tired easily. In such a case correctly selected homeopathic remedies successfully help normalize metabolism, will add vigor and strength.

Pharmacies usually sell complex homeopathic remedies, with many components in them. They are safer than many chemical medicines, but are designed for the mass market, so it is not advisable to use them without first seeing a specialist.

Homeopath can assign a strictly individualized, effective homeopathic treatment, as well as select the best concentration and intake schedule.

Author's Bio: 

As a Doctor of Naturopathy, I believe that optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness to one of achieving wellness. Achieving wellness requires balancing of the various controllable aspects of the whole person. These aspects are physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The broader holistic approach to health involves the integration of all of these aspects and is an ongoing process.
I try to analyze each individual's health, behavioral and attitudinal profile to help achieve optimal wellness by referring each client to scientific, historical and anecdotal healing principles.
I'm performing wellness consultations regarding diet, homeopathy, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, exercise; mind/body imbalances, alternative healing and can refer to other healthcare professionals when appropriate.
The original meaning of the word "doctor" is teacher. A principle objective of naturopathic medicine is to educate the patient and emphasize self-responsibility for health.
