Overweight and Curing Obesity – Synthesis Medicine
In 2007, a medical journal: “Effects of poor treatment for obesity and overweight” regarding treatments currently available for being overweight. There are currently three categories of anti-obesity drugs: “Sibutramine,” “Orlistat” and “Rimonabant.”
All research carried out on these molecules has been subsidized by the pharmaceutical industry, including studies that prove effectiveness and investigations that study the dangers it causes.
“Sibutramine” to reduce dehydration and improve thermogenesis. The association recommends a maximum of one year of therapy due to drug side effects (high blood pressure and heart rate).
Orlistat (Xenical ®) acts by reducing digestion and absorption of intestinal fat. According to published studies, it takes at least two years of treatment for weight loss that can be measured statistically. Because fat is not digested, they are found in feces causing mildly unpleasant fat diarrhea.
Rimonabant (Acomplia ®) acts by blocking selective neurological receptors (cannabinoids), thereby disrupting the regulation of absorption and metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates. Again, it takes at least two years of treatment for effective results. Side effects of this drug are not well known.

The liver is a gland that is very important in regulating glucose and blood lipid metabolism. People who are overweight or obese often have a functional disorder or fatigue. Thus, liver and biliary excretion must be stimulated to follow a slimming diet.
Treatment of Obesity Complications by Medicinal Plants: Plants and Diabetes, Plants and Cholesterol Disorders
The metabolic syndrome linked to being overweight or obese is almost always accompanied by type 2 diabetes with pancreatic fatigue often associated with progressive insulin inefficiency. This syndrome is most often illustrated by disorders of blood lipids (increased blood cholesterol, triglycerides, an abnormal ratio of cholesterol carriers (lipoproteins).
When being overweight is associated with this type of metabolic disorder, it is important to associate an herbal diet that is adapted to a hypo-calorie (slimming) diet. Some herbal examples are: Guggul, Commiphora Mukul, garlic, Allium sativum, artichoke, Cynara scolymus, dandelion, Taraxacum officinalis, rosemary, Rosmarinus officinalis, turmeric, Curcuma longa; ginseng, Panax ginseng, olive tree, Olea Europea; walnut, Juglans regia; thorn bush, Rubus fructicosus; raspberry, Rubus hideous; strawberries, Fragaria vesca; mulberry, Morus nigra, blueberry, Vaccinium myrtillus, green tea, Camellia sinensis
One can add to the herbs mentioned above Lagerstroemia Speciosa (Banaba). The Lagerstroemia Speciosa (Banaba in the Philippines) is a medium-sized tree from Southeast Asia. It has been used for a long time, in this part of the world to cure the symptoms of diabetes and urinary disorders. Several in vitro studies and animals have agreed to the interest of Banaba leaves as an antidiabetic adjuvant and diet. It seems that tannins are an active part. This herb does not appear to show any toxicity. Therefore, it is quite interesting to treat the complications of obesity and mild diabetes in Southeast Asia, where the epidemic is widespread and where drugs are often fake.
