Obesity occurs when the body collects a substantial amount of excess fat, which is then spread across different parts of the body. A persona is typically considered obese when their body fat is 30% higher than that of the optimal fat level for their weight and age.

With obesity becoming an increasing issue within North America, Homeopaths combat this condition by partnering homeopathic remedies with dietary disciplines, as a means of dealing with obesity at its root. Homeopathy works to tackle the reasons that led up to why an individual became obese—whether the reason is genetic, or due to poor lifestyle choices.
