Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to make proper use of glucose resulting in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (sugar in urine).
According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes (Prameha): 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (Prameha) is mainly kapha doshaja disease.
All forms of diabetes not treated to eventually develop into Madhumeha (Diabetes Melitus).
Diabetes is termed as SILENT KILLER and recently evidence of cases of “Insulin resistance” and the occurrence of side effects from prolonged administration of conventional drugs have triggered the search for safe and effective alternatives.
Yashcha kinchith vidhiranyepi sleshma medho moothra samjananam sa sarva: nidana vishesha:
The main cause of prameha (diabetes) is lack of exercise and consumption of excess food having ushna, snigdha and gurunature. Foods that increase kapha, medhas and mootra are the major factors for prameha.
If not treated diabetes can lead to glaucoma, cataract and retinopathy. Since healing does not take place quickly there is a risk of gangrene and foot problems. Skin is more susceptible to infection and heart function is also affected leading to cardiovascular complications. Kidneys are affected; stomach functions reduce, nerve damage can happen. The risk of stroke is present and men may become impotent.
There is no permanent cure for diabetes in allopathy and one has to take medications to keep condition stable and dosage of such medication may rise over time. Such medications may have adverse effect on heart, liver and kidneys when consumed for a long time.
According to Ayurveda the line of treatment of prameha is strictly on individual’s constitution.
Multi channel approach is the norm in ayurveda for treatment of diabetes. It includes, aahar or diet, vihar or lifestyle and aushadhi or medicine.
Natural treatments need discipline on the part of patients. For instance, they may be advised to avoid spices, sugar and salt and try to consume higher amount of only fresh fruits and vegetables or boiled foods. It is a contradiction but those with diabetes sometimes have higher cracing for spicy foods and sweets so maintaining control is important. Some have reported natural cures only by consuming amla and turmeric powder in the morning and consuming boiled foods.
