If wrong food is ingested; food is not being digested properly; juices are not being formed; food absorption has gone bad; large amounts of food are taken; properly balanced diet is not taken and all the other things that signify the bad diet practices lead to disease in some part of the body.

Hence, all the Ayurvedic treatments for Diabetes begin with the changes in Diet Plans. The Ayurvedic Practitioner will analyse the body pulses; determine the body prakriti, identify the pain areas and will go deep into the root of the problem.

This step ensures that the auto-antibodies are suppressed. The most common practices involve herbal massages, fasting, herbal steam sauna and herbal powders for cleansing the liver, pancreas and spleen. Finally, the colon therapy is done to completely get rid of the toxic materials from the body and make the whole digestive tract as fresh and as good as new.

The author has diognised rightly that the diabetes is the metabolic disorder and aggravation of Doshas such as Vata, Pitta and Cough worsens the disease. Hence diabetes can be distinguished as Vata, Pitta or Cough type disorder unlike in the allopathy symptoms where the status of HB1 AC is the dominant factor in deciding a medicine by an Endocronoligist.

The specialist in Allopathy may change medicines depending upon HB1 AC, elevation of fasting blood sugar and postprandial sugar. With the progress of time, the severity of disease multiplies and then the doses of the medicines are to be stepped up or the specialist would work out some combination of medicines. The last resort would be to administer Insulin.

In Ayurveda, however, the practitioner would decide the Prakriti of the affected man apart from the sugar level in the blood. The herbs or medicine will vary from man to man. Here stress is given on the enhancement immunity symptoms apart from toning up the digestion. With the right administration of such as Tinospora Cardifolia, Gymnema Sylvestre, Amlaki, Shilajeet etc, the severity of the disease can be checked. But we need to take all such herbs of medications under the supervision of experts. There are possibilities of elimination of this disease with suitable diets, exercise and close follow up.

Ayurveda is a lifestyle science and simply taking the Ayurvedic potions may not help in real life until unless a person modifies his ways of life thoroughly in accordance with the principles of Ayurveda.

That is the reason why some people are not comfortable with Ayurvedic treatments and run to the modern medical sciences for quick relief.

Ayurveda believes in the cleansing of body and eradicating the ailments through a series of measures ranging from proper food intake to Yoga and exercising. This continuous regime of actions leads to a healthy life through the removal of Doshas from the human body and increasing the immune system to fight against the outside attacks.

The efficacy of Ayurvedic and natural remedies is being accepted worldwide now and there are a large number of people following these methods of treatment and getting relieved of their chronic ailments.

Ayurvedic treatment require a lot of patience and control on one's habits and life style. It many times happens that the person under the Ayurvedic treatment loses his patience and discontinues the treatment in between and goes for modern medication and remains there as he gets an instant relief by the modern medicines but he forgets that these modern medicines come with a risk of so many side effects.

So it is a pre-requisite to have patience and long time adherence if one is serious about Ayurvedic remedies.

It is true that Ayurvedic treatment can effectively cure many diseases if all the instructions of the Vaid, the Ayurveda practitioner, are followed correctly. According to modern science, diabetes is a lifestyle disorder which is rising at an alarming rate due to different factors. While anxiety is one of the prominent factors, there are other reasons too that contribute to aggravate the problem. The most important thing is to change the lifestyle and since Ayurveda treats the body to cure the complete system rather than working only on the particular disorder, many things have to be followed to get the effective result.

As mentioned in this article, there are few steps to control diabetes that starts from diet modification. Till now it is found that Ayurveda has no side effects, but it may be difficult at times to find the right Ayurveda practitioner. There are so many products available in the market labeled as Ayurveda formulations and people have a craze to purchase those.

The Ayurveda is the ancient form of treatment and to promote its effectiveness the government has established a new Ministry to look after it. The drawbacks of Allopathic medicine is that they have side affects and may cause further complications if taken for a really long time. Since Ayurvedic treatment has no side effects, people should think of this option to get cured though it may take a lot of time.

#Bitter Gourd juice is the best to use. A person may drink 30ml of it on empty stomach in the morning.

#Neem, Tulsi, Belpatras(Bengal quince) - take 10 leaves of each and extract juice from them and drink it with water on empty stomach in the morning.

#Methi seeds are helpful. Keep them dipped in a bowl at night and eat them in the morning and also drink the water.

#Jamun (blackberry) is very helpful for controlling diabetes. One can chew 4-5 leaves of it in the morning or its seeds can be ground and 1 tsp of the powder can be taken 2 times with lukewarm water. It will help in controlling blood sugar.

Green vegetables should be included as much as in the diet. One should not eat potatoes, sweet potatoes, grapes, mangoes etc. Eat garlic and onions as much as you can. Do little exercise daily and go for brisk walks in the morning as well as in the evening. Yoga is useful and so one should do it regularly.
