I am going to give you the exact list, well the actual list of ayurvedic medicines that will do the trick for you.
Before I could do that let’s understand the existence of Ayurvedic medicine and how it works.
The existence of ayurvedic medicines for treating multiple ailment dates back to ancient times, way before our modern Allopathy and homeopathy existed.
Ayurveda is the oldest form of treatment used in India. In fact it’s so much into our culture that subconsciously we tend to use it every now and then.
Have you ever wondered why your grandmother used to give Ajwain water when you got stomach ache. Do you remember the Cloves your mom gave when you suffered from Tooth Ache’s?
These remedies are simple but if you try to trace its root, it dates back to our forefather’s era when they used to use Ayurveda as a primary source of medication.
In today’s age Ayurvedic medicines are used as a supplement OR it plays a supporting role when used together with allopathy medicines.
In the olden days Ayurvedic herbs and foods were the primary source of curing many diseases. Guess what, our ancestors made the most out of it, it worked better than any other medicines known and the best part is without any side effects or limited side effects.
Before we go deep into Ayurvedic medicines for burning fat lets understand how Ayurveda works and how it is beneficial for you.
How Does Ayurvedic medicines work?
When you opt for Ayurvedic treatment for weight loss three elements are highlighted i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha. So anytime you go for a treatment/cure, that particular medicine focuses on correcting any of the 3 elements mentioned.
Ideally a person may gain weight when any of the three Doshas are imbalanced. There are many causes of Obesity such as Thyroid, Poor lifestyle, Over Consumption of junk foods, Oily foods, Lack of exercise, Poor metabolism, Hyper acidity, Poor digestive system, Diabetes, Influence of Allopathic medicines like Atenolol and other High blood pressure medications.
When you consume Modern drugs for a prolonged period of time there are high chances that any of the three Doshas are already disturbed. Therefore it’s important to identify which Dosha is affected and what medication can be used to treat the disorder.
In Ayurveda when a particular medicine is used to treat an individual, it does not necessarily means that medicine will give equal benefits to you. As I said you need to identify where the actual problem is and which Dosha needs to be corrected.
If confused, its best to consult an Ayurvedic expert or consume Ayurvedic herbs or medication that works on correcting all the three Doshas.
Why Ayurvedic foods and medicine are best for obesity ?
One of the major benefits of Ayurveda is that it has limited or no side effects. A perfect example of Bad side effects can be Allopathy medication. I have seen many patients who become obese upon taking Blood pressure medications, Diabetes medicines, medicines for thyroid and more.
The Only Advantage of Allopathy :
The only advantage of Allopathy medicine over Ayurvedic medicine is that these modern drugs work instantly to reduce the symptoms. In long run these modern drugs have real adverse effects on your body which leads to Kidney failure, Liver Cancer, Poor Colon function and many more.
When we talk about treatment or cure through Ayurveda, nothing is instant. On the contrary the ayurvedic medicine works by correcting the Doshas which are imbalanced.
No technology, Drugs or herbs can cure the years of damage you did to yourself by consuming alcohol, drugs, smoking and bad habits.
You need to be patient with Ayurvedic approach. In fact some treatments can go for more than 6 months.
How to get rid of Obesity through Ayurveda?
The answer is simple, analyze yourself and get rid of poor lifestyle at the first place. If you are on drugs then Obesity may just be a side effect. So how do you get rid of drugs? Think twice.
Are you taking drugs for High blood pressure and heart problems since you were infant? The answer is no.
The reason you are taking drugs is because of your poor habits. Get rid of poor habits and you will see drugs moving out of your life. Therefore Ayurveda focuses on holistic living to cure any health problems.
Having said that, if you are on any modern medication it’s not advisable to get rid of it instantly as your body is now dependent on it for your survival.
The simple way to get rid of any drugs would be to adopt Ayurvedic formula of Zero Oil healthy Ayurvedic Diet + 2 Hrs. Yoga + 30 Mins. walk and 8 hours sleep.

- The medicines listed below are considered to be safe and known to work on balancing the Doshas.
16 Ultimate Ayurvedic medicines for weight loss without side effects
I have divided the Ayurvedic medicines into three Sections i.e. Pure Medicines, Juices that have medicinal properties and Foods that act like medicines. Mixture of all three categories makes a powerful tool to combat Excess fat in your system. Let’s get started with Number one…
First on our list of Ayurvedic Medicine for Weight Loss is Guggul. This is an ancient herb and is commonly found in India. Guggul is a Gum like substance found from Guggul plant. This wonderful herb is prescribed by Veds (Ayurvedic Doctors) in India since centuries to treat Obesity and high Cholesterol.
Multiple research on this herb has found that Guggul contains key element called guggulsterone E and guggulsterone Z that contributes to weight loss and improves the Lipid Profile.
Guggul is also being studied for its positive effects on Arthritis, acne and triglyceride lowering ability and many more. While Guggul is relatively safe to be consumed, Overdose can be potentially harmful. Therefore it’s advisable to buy Guggul supplements that has dosage prescribed on it.
Research on Guggul:
Multiple research have been conducted since the year 2003 on Guggul and the results are neutral.
More research needs to be conducted on Guggul for Acne, Arthritis, Asthma and Diabetes. Having said that results were positive on Cholesterol reduction, triglyceride reduction and weight reduction.
There are still lack of evidence on the research and results part as more research is still needed, at this point only thing that we can trust is knowledge of Ayurveda and as per Ayurveda Guggul is best for treating cholesterol, triglycerides and Obesity.
Possible Side effects of Guggul if Overdosed :
Some of the known side effects of Guggul are Vomiting, Feeling Nauseatic, Rashes on your Skin, Allergies reaction and belching.
Having said that no fatalities has been reported so far. These side effects generally happen when you consume exponentially high amount of Guggul. Not only Guggul if you consume any food or medicine in high amount reaction is eminent.
So to stay safe make sure you do not over consume any medication. On the other hand when you take Modern drugs for prolonged period it can be life threatening.
Guggul with Modern drugs:
it’s not advisable to take Guggul along with drugs such as statins or Sugar lowering drugs as combination of both can reduce your Cholesterol and sugar levels exponentially.
Avoid Guggul if:
1.) If you are Pregnant
2.) If you are Lactating Mother
3.) Suffering from severe hypertension (Consult doctor before taking this)
5.) You have Diabetes (Especially Low sugar levels.)
Safe Dosage: About 250 – 350 mg.
Here is to use Guggul for effective weight loss
- Once you have your Lunch its safe and effective to consume Guggul after an hour.
- Have Guggul an hour or two before Consuming Dinner.
- Guggul is best when consumed in pill form. There are many reputed and safe companies who make make Guggul Pill one of them is Himalaya. So you can use Guggul from Himalaya. Guggul is one of the top selling Product of Himalaya.
2.) Garcinia Cambogia
Second on our list of Ayurvedic medicine for weight loss is Garcinia Cambogia. This amazing supplement works on your Kapha and tries to balance it by blocking the Fat producing capacity of your body.
Garcinia is a Sub Tropical fruit found in Southwest India and is Native to Countries such as Indonesia and Myanmar. It’s also known as Malabar tamarind and is popularly known due to fat burning properties.
It contains hydroxycitric acid and this is the main ingredient that boosts your metabolism and aids weight loss process.
Garcinia is most commonly known for reducing stress, boosting metabolism, regulating blood sugar levels and balancing the lipids.
Research on Garcinia:
Research on this supplement on its Anti-Obesity properties has produced mixed results. More clinical trial needs to be conducted on Anti-Obesity and Lipid controlling properties.
The reason this supplement makes to number 2 on our list is because there are hundreds of testimonies (Legit and Non-Legit) claiming to have benefited from Garcinia. Even if 1/4 of the claim is proved to be correct then it far exceeds its counter parts. In fact, there are many websites and companies offering schemes such as money back guarantee if no results.
So based on the results this medicine produces it has forced me to put it to number 2 slot.
I personally believe that there are no magic supplement or Ayurvedic medicine that can burn fat at exponential rate. If anyone claims to do so it’s surely a false claim.
In order to burn fat you need to follow disciplined diet and lead an active lifestyle. Having said that in my view Garcinia’s metabolism boosting ability is what makes it so special therefore its more a metabolism boosting medicine and not a direct fat burner and there is a reason to it.
The reason its not a direct fat burning supplement is because this herb won’t work if you are suffering from Obesity due to medical condition like Thyroid or suffering form side effects of Blood pressure medication.
What would work is:
2 hours of Yoga + Healthy Non-Carcinogenic diet + Holistic Living+ 30 Mins walk = Disease free life.
The way garcinia works is my correcting your metabolism and reducing the hunger pranks.
Is Garcinia Safe?
This Ancient Ayurvedic medicine is relatively safe to be consumed and no fatalities have been reported so far. Nevertheless, anything good or bad if over consumed can lead to fatal consequences. Therefore, it’s recommended to have Garcinia extracts as per the dosage prescribed in the bottle.
Possible Side Effects if Over Consumed :
While this medicine does not have any side effects if consumed in appropriate quantity, possible side effects when over-consumed are Headache, Vomiting, Rashes, and mouth Ulcers (All are for generally short duration.)
What are safe Dosage?
Safe dosage should ideally range from 100 mg to 300 mg.
Verdict: Garcinia can be good way to shed pounds if you are suffering from poor metabolism and this is safe to be consumed.
Triphala literally means combination of three fruits. The three fruits include Bibitaki, Haritaki and Amalaki.
This amazing Ayurvedic Supplement is one of those medicine that works on all the three Doshas unlike its counterpart that generally focuses on any one or two Doshas.

This concludes our list of pure Ayurvedic medicines for weight loss, let’s learn how to make weight loss medicines using Ayurvedic juices and Veggies…
Use these 5 Excellent Ayurvedic Juices for weight loss.
1.) Lauki Juice
This is the Ultimate therapy that you should switch to if you are serious about weight loss. This is one type of juice that has been studied a lot for its weight loss properties and arteries cleaning ability.
When it comes to clinical evidence this juice far exceeds the expectations. Thanks to Baba Ramdev from Patanjali to revolutionize the treatment of heart disease and Obesity through Lauki therapy.
There are tons of case studies at Patanjali ashram that has cured serious heart blockages including third degree block and these are not false claims. Results are well documented at the Patanjali Ashram.
But you need to remember that Lauki alone cannot cure obesity or heart problems, you need to support this therapy through Yoga as well.
One Pranayama that compliments this therapy best is Anulom Vilom Pranayam.
How to use Lauki Juice for quick weight loss?
Step 1: Peel of the Lauki (Bottle Gourd) and cut it into pieces
Step 2: Put it in the mixture, add some mint leaves, add little water and grind it.
Step 3: Take a fine cloth and extract the juices
Have this first thing in the morning in an empty stomach, My personal recommendation is to go with this therapy for first two months and if not results only then switch to other means.
You will be surprised how beneficial it will be for you. Check you ECG after 2 – 3 months of this therapy. The results will be mind boggling as I have seen the results. Guys this is for real, couldn’t emphasize more try to believe it.
If you don’t like the taste of lauki juice then you can use it in combination with other fat burning veggies, I have listed multiple combination of lauki juice here.
2.) Wheat Grass – Potent Ayurvedic medicine for weight loss
After Lauki this is the best recommended therapy. You can use combination of Lauki therapy and Wheat Grass Juice together to get the optimum results and that too 100% safe.
This Juice does not have any restrictions and can be used by any one.
This juice is being used since ancient time to heal human body. It has properties that can regenerate dead cells. No other juice or medicine in the world can regenerate your dead cells. And its scientifically proved too.
If doctor has told you for bypass then worry not, try this therapy for 4-6 months. You should see collaterals opening or growing soon. As I said it has Cell regeneration ability.
This potent juice contains all the Minerals known to mankind. With the help of potent nutrition and vital minerals repairing the damage is almost guaranteed if you are not suffering from life threatening ailments like cancer or total liver or kidney failure.
Here is how you can use Wheat grass Juice for weight loss
It’s best to grow wheat grass and then make the juice and have it.
Follow these 8 simple steps to make wheat grass juice. Take a 7 small Pot and put the seeds. Do it the way outlined below:
- On Monday, in a pot sow some wheat seeds
- The next day i.e. Tuesday, in a pot sow some wheat seeds
- On Wednesday, in a pot sow some wheat seeds
- Keep doing this until Sunday.
- By the time you reach Monday you will have the First Pot ready.
- Pluck the wheat grass from the first Pot and juice it and Have it.
- Likewise on Tuesday you will have another pot ready, do that same.
- You may repeat the whole process for a month and then take a ECG Test or measure your Weight.
Alternatively you can take readymade wheat grass juice from the store (Which I don’t recommend as it contains Class II preservatives).
Class II preservatives are relatively safe to be consumed but I prefer to stay away as I have a choice to make Organic wheatgrass.
This is how you consume:
- 1.) Make sure you have 50 – 150 Gms of Pure juice.
- 2.) Have it 2 hours after having Lauki Juice.
- 3.) Have it at around 6.30 PM to 7:00 PM next.
- 4.) Repeat the process for a month or so.

Whenever the topic of Amla is discussed experts relate it to Vitamin C potency. While it’s very high in Vitamins C it has some serious health benefits.
Benefits include Boosting metabolism, Immunity, treating viral infection, Cough and Cold.
Along with its general traditional benefits this Juice becomes a potent weight loss medicine when mixed with Aloe Vera.
While Aloe Vera Takes care of all your Stomach related Ailments including controlling the Inflammation, Amla works on Endothelial level by flushing out toxins and fighting free radicals.
This process does not allow you to accumulate on your body.

Extracting Aloe Vera Gel can be a challenge as you don’t know how that Aloe Vera is grown and how much gel needs to be extracted. Some Aloe Vera Gel can be poisonous too.
3.) Beet and Mint Juice – An Ayurvedic detoxifying medicine.
The reason why I included Beet and Mint Juice is because when you are fighting Obesity we forget the detoxification process.
You should have this juice at least 3 – 4 times a week just for detoxification. The fat cells in your body becomes inflamed if the toxic substances are not eliminated from your body.
Apart from detoxification this juice is loaded with Vitamin C, Folate, Potassium and tons of Anti-Oxidants. While Beet Juice has tons of benefits when mixed with Mint leaves juice it becomes a potent Ayurvedic medicine for quick weight loss.

It’s a beautiful cycle that starts when your body becomes used to this juice.
Here is how to make this juice…

5.) Orange Juice for weight loss
Is Orange really a medicine?
Well Yes and no.
Orange juice is more of a health Juice or supplement. This same orange becomes an Ayurvedic herb when the Peel is used in a dry form.
Orange juice is from Citrus family and its juice is amazingly beneficial for heart, kidneys and Lungs.
While orange is good for health people suffering from high sugar generally avoid this due to its high Sugar levels. So how do you use Orange to get real benefits and how to do you make this Fruit turn into medicine that can burn fat at a quick rate?
Here is how you do it…

While Orange is sweet in taste, the Peel is bitter and not so palatable. This is a sign that the peel is loaded with tons of anti-oxidants. The positive side effects of Orange peel is Controlled blood pressure and reduced heart palpation.
Apart from the benefits above, Orange Peel is best when used for weight loss.

The usage of these drugs over a prolonged period of time can lead to fatalities such as Diabetes, Heart Attack, Cardiomegaly, Thyroid and other hormonal disorders.
