Focus vesiculosus is seaweed, native of North America, Europe, north of the Mediterranean and Manora rocks in Indian Ocean. Its fronds are fan-shapped, having a prominent midrib of light yellow or brownish-green. It attaches to rocks by branched, root-like discoid woody extremities developed from the base of the stalk. Its homoeopathic tincture is made from the whole plant. It is covered by Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India. It was introduced by Dr. Ducheshe.

Overweight and obesity

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height. Obesity occurs over time when a person eats more calories than s/he uses. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might tip the balance include genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods and not being physically active.

Health consequences of being overweight

Being overweight or obese can have a serious impact on health. Carrying extra fat leads to serious health consequences such as cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke), type 2 diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders like osteoarthritis, and some cancers (endometrial, breast and colon). These conditions cause premature death and substantial disability.

Measuring overweight and obesity

Body mass index (BMI) is used to measure the overweight and obesity. BMI is calculated on the height and weight of an individual. BMI is the result of a person’s weight in kilogram divided by meter square (body weight in kilogram/meter2). In India, people more than BMI 23 are considered overweight, people more than BMI 25 are considered moderately obese and people more than BMI 32.5 are considered grossly obese, against the global standards of 25, 30 and 35 respectively. Experts say that Indians have a very different body, genetic and metabolic composition than the people of other parts of the world.

Managing overweight

The good news is that overweight and obesity are largely preventable. The key to success is to achieve an energy balance between calories consumed on one hand, and calories used on the other hand. To reach this goal, people can limit energy intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from saturated fats to unsaturated fats; increase consumption of fruit and vegetables, as well as legumes, whole grains and nuts; and limit their intake of sugars. And to increase calories used, people can boost their levels of physical activity - to at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate-intensity activity on most days. Herbs like Fucuss vesiculosus and Phytolacca berry help to combat overweight and obesity.

Overweight and obesity due to thyroid disorders

Many patients with thyroid problems tend to gain weight. It is known particularly that hypothyroidism or higher thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is linked with higher BMI. It is mainly because of involvement of thyroid hormones in the regulation of basal metabolism and thermogenesis, playing an important role in lipid and glucose metabolism, food intake and fat oxidation.

Role of Fucus vesiculosus in overweight and obesity

It is remedy for obesity associated thyroid dysfunctions. Digestion is regulated and flatulence diminished. Obstinate constipation.

Thyroid stimulation is linked to iodine in the plant extract.i In a study published in CCRH’s research journal IJRH, Fucus vesiculosus treatment prevented the rats from becoming obese and the biochemical and physical parameters were maintained to normal levels.ii Its weight reduction activity is by enhancing thermogenesis.iii
