Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
there are also a few yoga postures which help one to put on weight as well. Yoga can help with weight gain treatment as the poses help to build up stamina and increase the appetite in the person performing it. An increased appetite makes a person hungrier and this he/she tends to eat will, which leads to weight gain. Yoga helps a person to gain weight proportionately and there is no abnormal weight gain either. One such yoga pose which helps a person gain weight is Shavasana (Dead Body Pose) as this pose involves lying on the ground and easy breathing. This posture helps to rejuvenate the body as well.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Certainly Sanjay,ayurvedic medicines are the best in such types of symptoms.
1)take maximum nidra (sleep) and after that take a glass of milk+ghee+keshar.
2)Mental relaxation is very much important;don't bother about any thing.
3)The non veg soup prepared in ghee is essential.
4)Application of warm bala tailam/shkir bala tailam/mashadi tailam/musalyadi tailam at night is necessary.
5)Take maximum sweet food with ginger+pudina chutani also jeevaniya gana diet important.
6)Tapyadi loha/amrutprasha ghritam/sheelajatu vatakam/chavanprash/brahm rasayana/kalyanaka ghritam/mahakalyanaka ghritam/kutipraveshik rasayana/vrushya yoga/shatavari kalpa are some of the medicines that we vaidyas use in our practice.
At least no physical exercise including yoga is required at this stage for permanent cure.Have a healthy and strong life ahead.Be in touch of expert vaidya.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum

Please mention your age , sex, and any symptoms you have. What kind of weakness you feel? Is it realted to your stamina, sexual weakness, mental lethargy?

Yog is helpful or overall fitness,but you need to do it under guidance of any expert. Yog and pranayaam are not like skipping or playing badmintion , that you can do by urself . They hav to be done in a proper way.

Diet plays a big role in keeping body and mind fit. Healthy , balanced diet, taken on right time. Sound sleep for 6-8 hrs each day. Keeping stress away and having a positive attitude towards life is also important.
