This is a condition where a group of diseases are seen in a single person. When three among the five, abdominal obesity, diabetes, hypertension, high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol, are seen in a person, he is termed as a person suffering from metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a critical reason and major disposing factor for heart attacks and brain stroke.

Hereditary, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, lack ofexercise and stress are the reasons for developing metabolic syndrome.

The statement of “Prevention is better than cure” is extremely valid in this case. Healthy eating habits, regular exercise, remaining active and reasonable management of stress can prevent develop metabolic syndrome.

If they are already suffering, the treatment will not only help in effective management with minimum allopathic medicines, but also prevent the condition deteriorating to other serious health issues.

A two weeks tailor made Panchakarma program, once a year will be beneficial. The program can be divided into two types. One is preventive and the other is to manage the complicationsof the body.
