Lack of weight is the common metabolic disorder in Sri Lanka. The aim of this study
was to evaluate the effect of Acupuncture treatment for weight gain. Fifty (50)
patients have been subjected in this survey which was conducted in Acupuncture clinic
at the National Ayurvedic Teaching Hospital, Colombo, Sri Lanka. Patients of either
sex aged between 18-50 years, who have been diagnoses to get short height, hair loss,
irregular menses, body weakness and memory loss condition were selected in this study.
Especially considered healthy nutritional diet, they have taken in six months duration
before the treatment. The result highlighted the maximum number had weight between
45-49.9 kg in 26.3% and BMI 18.5-22.9 was increased 63%. The study proved increased
body weight by kidney tonification point of Acupuncture. All types of food ingested under
goes Jatharagni paka at the outset. The function digestion and absorption both have been
attributed to Jatharagni paka (Ca/Chi/15/9-11). Anna rasa absorbed from the Mahasrothasa
goes in circulation. The circulating rasa is made available to different tissues for nutrition.
The nutrients reaching the different tissues are acted upon by Dhatwagni. The function
of Dhatwagni is to participate in the process of metabolism. There is breakdown of the
nutrition and this causes low production of energy (Ch/Su/27/337). Acupuncture improves
digestion by improving motility, the production of digestive enzymes and the absorption
of nutritional substances. Lack of weight is the common metabolic disorder seen in the
clinical practice and how to manage it through Acupuncture therapy is more practical,
because Acupuncture treatment is quick in effect by short treatment and shows large effect
by small expense. Therefore, this study will give awareness to build up health.
