Sthoulya (Obesity) is an increasing and worrisome problem in present population of age group 20-40 years as its complications are contributing to hazardous diseases like diabetes, heart disorders, etc. The reason behind this is altered life style of the population. Those who want to reduce the weight, find it difficult as the exercises, gym practices and dietary restrictions are difficult to follow regularly. Ayurveda has described Sthoulya in “Ashta Ninditiya” (eight unappreciated) conditions as Ati Sthoolata is not a symptom of Swasthya. Further, to overcome this condition, Ayurveda has mentioned various treatment modalities like Vaman (Vomiting), Virechan (Purgation), Vasti (Enema), Abhyang (Massage), Swedan (Fomentation), Udvartana (Rubbing), Yogasanas (Postural exercises), Pranayam (Breathing exercises), dietary regimen etc. trying to perform Apunarbhava Chikitsa (Treatment without complications) according to the Prakriti (Constitution) of the patient. When Shigru Taila Lekhan Vasti was given to a patient of Sthoulya, his weight was reduced by 4.5kg in 45 days without any exercise and dieting. This case study explains the role of Shigru Tail Vasti in Sthoulya.
