Obesity is regarded today as a major public health problem in developed as well as developing countries. Obesity may be defined as abnormal growth of adipose tissue due to an enlargement of fat cell size (hypertrophic obesity) or increase in fat cell number (hyperplasic obesity) or a combination of both. It is generally associated with CHD, Diabetes, HTN, Arthritis, Infertility, physical inactivity etc and it leads to higher mortality rate. According to Hippocratic doctrine, “sudden death is more common in those who are naturally fat than in the lean.” International obesity task force (IOTF) analysis estimates that approx one billion adults are currently overweight and a future 475 millions are obese. The WHO now describes global obesity, or “globesity” as one of the top ten risks to human health. Unani system of medicine provides a holistic approach to combat against this global monster.
