Ayurveda identifies Sthoulya as a Santarpanottha Vyadhi and Atisthoola is considered as one among the Ashta Ninditha Purushas. Sthoulya is correlated to Obesity which is widely regarded as a pandemic with potentially disastrous consequences on human health. The prevalence of Obesity has increased threefold for the past 20 years and continues to rise and is gaining more and more attention globally. By considering the difficulties in the management of Obesity, it is the need of the hour to develop better treatment protocol to treat this condition. Classics have quoted the use of Rookshana Poorvaka Vamana Karma for the management of Sthoulya. Udwartana is a form of Rukshana which exerts Kaphahara and Medohara effect. Snehapana is the purva karma of Vamana Karma which can be done through Taila since Taila is best for treating Pravruddha Sleshma and Medaska conditions. Vamana Karma is the treatment of choice in Kaphaja Roga and can be adopted in Sthoulya as it is indicated in Medo roga and all Santarpanottha Vyadhi. “Sthoulya‟ is caused by the nidanas like Atibhojana, Satata shleshmala, Madhura ahaara sevana, Avyayama, Divaswapna etc. and etiological factors like intake of high calorie diet, fast food, junk food and sedentary life style. Sthoulya is a disease presenting mainly with Chalatwa of Sphik, Udara, Stana and is being identified with Overweight and Obesity.

Keywords: Sthoulya, Obesity, Vamana Karma, Udwartana, Snehapana.
