To assess the efficacy of Madhoodak & Gomutra Arka in the management of Sthaulya & compare their effect. In present clinical trial 40 patient aged between 20 to 45 years, reporting BMI in between 25 to 40 kg/m2, having clinical signs and symptoms of Sthaulya were selected from O.P.D. & I.P.D. & Yoga Unit of NIA Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, and registered following written consent. Registered patients were randomly divided into two groups. Group A has been administered with Gomutra Arka & Group M has been administered with Madhoodak , once in a day.  Follow up has been recorded after every fortnight for the duration of 3 month.
