Diabetes is one of the most common diseases, with multiple people in a single family being barred from having anything sweet. In fact, it runs in families. While everyone seeks a system of medicine to keep the sugar levels in check, there is the approach of ayurveda that seeks to catch the root cause and deal with the overall effects of diabetes.
According to ayurveda, diabetes is known as Madhumeha and it develops in either of the two ways; one is due to aggravation of vata dosha because of tissue depletion, and the other is due to the obstruction or blockage of the channels by Kapha dosha and fatty tissue. Both the causes increase vata dosha in the body and over time, manifests as diabetes. Another prime cause of diabetes is impaired digestion, that leads to accumulation of specific digestive impurities called ama. Ama accumulates in the pancreatic cells and impairs the production of insulin, causing diabetes.
Neglecting diabetes can lead to complications like eye problems, joint pains, Impotency, kidney failure, sexual and urologic problems, etc. It should be noted that diabetes cannot be merely treated by controlling sugar levels because it is a metabolic disorder that cause tissue damage. Which is why even if the blood sugar levels are kept under control with medication, there is a high risk of damage to your eyes, kidneys or other vital organs later on.
Ayurvedic approach to treat diabetes is not a single medication solution, but a combination of personalized medication, dietary changes and lifestyle recommendations to not just bring the sugar levels under control, but to Rejuvenate you boody and purify it from all the Vata, kapha and ama. Ayurveda aims at identifying the root cause of your diabetes and providing customized treatment according to your condition. We first work on reducing your current medication dosage and then help you to manage diabetes through ayurveda.
