Method of Preparation and Dose:
Mix the above ingredients in equal proportion in dry form. Prepare a coarse powder by adequate grinding. Keep the powder in an airtight container. As an average dose for an adult, every day, fresh decoction prepared with five teaspoons (about 15gm) of this herbal powder in half-liter water should be used. Soak 15gm of the powder in half a liter of water at night. Boil it the next day morning. The flame of the burner or stove should be kept mild. It should also be stirred in between to avoid burning. Boiling should continue till the solution reduces to its one-fourth. When it cools down to normal (room) temperature, it should be filtered using a fine, clean piece of cloth. Half of this filtered solution, mixed with about a teaspoon of honey should be drunk empty stomach in the morning between 8 am and 10am and remaining half should be taken with one teaspoon of honey between 4 pm and 6 pm the same day. Fresh decoction should be prepared for every day. The honey should be pure; otherwise the decoction should be taken without it, as the sugar mixed, adulterated honey is not good for health. Likewise several other Ayurvedic medicines and the diet norms as recommended by the doctor should also be taken and observed for best results. In general, as it is well known in the case of obesity, fried and oily food, use of cream, cheese and lavish desserts and dry fruits should be strictly avoided. Fresh, green leafy vegetables and fibrous food should be taken instead. The morning dose of the above decoction should be taken empty stomach and nothing should be drunk at least for half-an-hour after taking this dose; nothing should be eaten until an hour after this dose. The duration between eating or drinking something (other than water) and taking the second (i.e. the afternoon) dose, should be at least an hour before and after taking this dose.
If this medication is continued with diet and exercise norms as given below, the positive results begin to show fast. Within a month a fat chap would see significant reduction in his fat and body-weight and would feel fit, energetic and active.
The following 'anti-corpulence' herbal medicine restrains the production of fat, helps decomposition of hydrocarbons and production of useful proteins and easily removable juices without disturbing the healthy metabolism. It can be taken with or without taking the decoction. This together with the decoction is usually advised for those who cannot do sufficient physical exercise or cannot be regular in it because of acute obesity or some other constraints.
