Ayurveda - Why It Is Best For Treating Diabetes?

With the increasing number of the diabetes patients in India, our country is moving towards the title of world diabetes capital. Due to a change in lifestyle and food habits health of the people are deteriorating day by day. The unhealthy body reduces the lifespan as well. Ayurvedic treatment is the amazing solution of the cure of this life threatening disease.

Diabetes is a health issue which is caused due to the increased level of blood sugar level in the body. The digestive system of the body breaks food we eat into sugar which is called glucose and sent to all the cells throughout the body. The cells convert the glucose into energy with the help of a special hormone known as Insulin. When body reduces the capacity to maintain the blood sugar level due to lack of insulin in the body then this condition is called diabetes.

The simple Ayurvedic remedies for diabetes which show amazing results in the treatment of the disease.

  1. Bitter goard: This is considered as the most effective remedy in the treatment of diabetes. Consuming bitter gourd juice in empty stomach every morning reduces blood sugar level of the body.
  2. Jamun seeds: The powder of Jamun seed of the leaves of Jamun tree both is used as remedies for diabetes. Chewing Jamun leaves prevents the production of sugar and keeps sugar level of the body maintained.
  3. Cinnamon powder: Cinnamon is also one of the best remedies for diabetes. It improves the functioning of the pancreas and this would increase the production of insulin in the body.
  4. Triphala: This is the mixture of three different herbs, this ingredients are useful for the decrease of the sugar level in the blood. Some of the drug formations used to cure diabetes are :
    1. Asanad tablets
    2. Chadrabrabha
    3. Vasantkusumakar
    4. Shilajitvaji

Diabetes is just not caused due to the lowering of insulin. It is mostly caused due to the lack of proper maintenance of the body. Sufferers should take care of their health by following the healthy lifestyle with the balanced diet, stress management and exercise with the natural herbs prescribed by some expert Ayurveda physicians.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Yes, sugar free tablets are quite safe in limited quantities. You may add them in your coffee/tea/prepared beverages. However, cooking after adding them is NOT always safe... especially, baking. Some of these artficial sweeteners are unstable at high temperatures. Beware.

For complete diet plan you need to consult a dietitian. In fruits you can have apple, orange, kiwi, guava, pears, peaches, cherries and berries. You should avoid mango, banana, chikoo, grapes and custard apple. In diabetes portion size matters so small frequent meals are good. All those fruits you can have daily. Fruits occupy space gives satity and have less calories.

Hereditary factors also play role in causing diabetes.
