If your weight is lower than what is considered as healthy according to your height, then you are underweight, which is a serious health problem. Anyone can be underweight, whether it is male, female or children. Generally, people are more concerned about losing weight but in reality, being underweight is a much more serious problem than being overweight. In this article, I will discuss the causes and risks associated with being underweight and how you can use Alfalfa tonic for weight gain.

You can find whether you are underweight or not by calculating your Body Mass Index (BMI) with this BMI Formula:

BMI = kg/m2

Note: Here Kg is your weight in kg and m2 is your height in meters squared

Compare your BMI with the Body Mass Index Chart given below.

Risk Factors of Being Underweight

There are several health risks for being underweight such as –

  • Osteoporosis

If you are underweight, the risk of osteoporosis, a bone disease in which bones become thin and weak, is high, especially in women. In Osteoporosis, a person’s new bone creation doesn’t match up with the old bone removal. The probability of bone fracturing (hip fractures mostly) increases during injuries/accidents.

It is best to Check Your Vitamin D Levels in the body to take timely actions. The 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Blood Test is the most accurate way to measure the level of Vitamin D in your body. A range of 20 ng/ml to 50 ng/ml is considered healthy. Below 20 ng/ml indicates in deficiency in Vitamin D.

If you are Vitamin D deficient, no need to panic. The main source of Vitamin D is direct sunlight and you can get most of the Vitamin D by sun exposure. If you don’t have time to get the direct sunlight, you can fulfil your Vitamin D requirement by including mushrooms in your diet. You can also go for Calcirol Sachet once in a week or as advised by your doctor.

  • Dry Skin

Maintaining a healthy weight is very important for your skin. Being underweight can lead to dry skin and even develop an orange tinge.

  • Hair Loss

Being underweight is a sign of lack of nutrition in the food intake. If the body doesn’t get enough nutrients from the diet, it may lead to hair loss.

  • Tooth Problems

Some research reports have shown that underweight children are prone to severe dental decay.

  • Irregular Periods

Underweight women may experience irregularity in their menstrual cycle and it may also cause infertility among them.

  • Anaemia

Significant weight loss often leads to anaemia. More than 50% of Indian women are anemic and being underweight is one of the common reasons for it. You should go for a Complete Blood Count to check whether you are anemic or not.

  • Low Immunity

Being underweight is not good as it weakens your immunity and your body gets prone to various infections.

Chubby people envy their skinny colleagues and rant about them having no worries with weight. However, society needs to understand that being too skinny is a problem in itself. No one wishes to look malnourished and being called a ‘stick’ all throughout. Everyone wishes for that perfect body figure; that perfect balance between the skinny and the chubby side. What if I told you Homeopath has some wonders in its store for the skinny counterparts. Alfalfa Tonic is one such drug that can be used for weight gain in such cases. Let us have a close look at this homeopathic medicine- Alfalfa tonic for weight gain and its wide benefits.

What is Alfalfa Tonic?

Homoeopathic Medicine is the science of medicine that embraces a holistic and natural approach to the treatment. A lot of people tend to prefer homeopathy over allopathy for all its safe reasons. It is known for a long and lasting cure with fewer side effects.

Get more information on the Differences between Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda, in this article.

Alfalfa Tonic is one such miracle from the world of Homeopathy. Alfalfa is an Arabic word meaning Father of all foods and was widely used by Arabs as food for both themselves and their horses. Alfa alfa sprouts and alfa alfa tonics are being used in traditional Chinese medicine too.

Alfalfa (Medicago Satvia) is an Arabic term which is known as the “father of all foods” and there is a reason for it. For many centuries Arabs have used Alfalfa as food not only for themselves but also for their horses.

According to them, consuming alfalfa or drinking its extract as tonic makes them and their animals stronger and full of energy. Adding to this, seeds and leaves of Alfalfa have medicinal properties and have been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurveda & Homeopathy for treating several disorders and ailments including arthritis, kidney stones and gastrointestinal disorders.

Alfalfa Tonic For Weight Gain

Alfalfa Tonic is a more concentrated form of nutrients compared to raw alfalfa sprouts and leaves. Being in a liquid form, it is digested and absorbed more easily. Alfalfa tonic combined with Ginseng is a well-proven drug of homeopathic therapeutics.

The main ingredient of Alfalfa Tonic is alfalfa which is known to improve appetite and gain weight. It is rich in amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients which help restore physical as well as mental well-being. It also increases your bone density which helps in increasing the overall body weight.

No wonder alfalfa is being increasingly used for improving the health of people who are suffering from malnutrition, nervous indigestion, and bulimia. It also takes care of the debility caused by diseases like Tuberculosis, Typhoid, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Malignancies and Diabetes mellitus which cause a state of ‘wasting’ or cachexia. Alfalfa tonic is also recommended during pregnancy and lactation.

How Does Alfalfa Tonic Work?

Following are the useful facts highlighting the functioning of the weight gain tonic:

Stimulate Appetite

Combining Alfalfa tonic with fruits and vegetables can have a synergistic or boosting effect as it enhances the assimilation of plant-based vitamins. It’s energy promoting properties often stimulate appetite and helps in gaining weight.

Energy Booster

It contains a variety of nutrients which are needed for energy production and physical activities including the Vitamin B group, eight essential amino acids and the highest chlorophyll of any plant. The vitamin B group, especially B6 and B12, is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. Amino Acids are needed to build protein and can be metabolized to produce energy. Chlorophyll stimulates the production of red blood cells, which carries oxygen to the tissues.

Aids in Digestion

It also mitigates heartburn, indigestion, some forms of stomach upset and generally enhances digestion.

Good Source of Iron

Iron is required to produce haemoglobin, a lack of which causes anaemia leading to fatigue, pale skin, dizziness and reduced surface body temperature.

Fights Against Infections

Alfalfa provides essential minerals and vitamins whereas Ginseng builds resistance against diseases and infections. Ginseng also works as a revitalizing agent by removing physical and mental disability and helps in faster recovery.
