Diabetes is one disease that affects you physically as well as mentally. The moment you do a random sugar test and find blood sugar levels in excess of 300, you start to panic. This panic causes a lot of stress thereby increasing blood glucose levels further. But, you should take heart from the fact that diabetes is a livable disease. There are people in this world surviving with diabetes mellitus for decades.

Ayurveda and Diabetes:

How do they manage to do that? Is it not painful to have insulin infusions frequently? Yes, it can be, but there are alternate ways to stimulate our body to produce natural insulin. This is where Ayurveda comes in. Ayurveda believes in going to the root cause of the disease and addressing it. The main cause of diabetes according to Ayurveda is the imbalance in the three Doshas. This causes your digestive fires to function abnormally thereby causing ailments like diabetes. This three-pronged solution formulated by Ayurveda can help in bringing relief to diabetic patients.

Ahar – Diet

The most important ingredient of this Ayurvedic Trishul (trident) is the diet. Reduce your intake of sugar and carbohydrates by having the right kind of food having a low glycaemic index. Fibrous foods are always better as they help in the easy digestion. Avoid foods like pasta, rice, and caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea, etc. It is also best to avoid consuming aerated beverages like colas, etc. Have whole nuts, olives, and cereals in your diet. Space your meals properly and avoid overeating. Having broken wheat is the best substitute for rice. Include a lot of fibrous fruits in your diet.

Chikitsa – Medication

Ayurveda does not believe in the external invasion. They have methods whereby they use the immune system of our body to produce antibodies to take care of the imbalance of the Doshas. Insulin is an important ingredient in any diabetic treatment procedure. Diabetes believes in stimulating our pancreas into producing natural insulin. There are Ayurvedic medicinal herbs like Gurmar, cinnamon, Fenugreek seeds, and others that help in controlling blood glucose levels. These herbs have proved extremely effective in treating Type 1 diabetes as well as Type 2 diabetes.

Vyayam – Exercise

One of the main reasons for diabetes is obesity. Controlling your weight is very important. Simple exercises like walking and jogging can keep your weight under control. Yoga is a great way to reduce stress and stimulate the body into producing natural insulin. Your lifestyle is very important. Reduce your intake of alcohol and cigarettes. They can bring you more harm than good.
