Diabetes - 6 Effective Ayurvedic Remedies for Treating it!

The instance of diabetes are rising day by day. Being a silent killer, it is attacking the young generation secretly and two common impacts of taking modern medicines for diabetes are insulin resistance and various side effects. This eventually has led to a search for alternative methods, which can address the problem of diabetes. Ayurveda plays a vital role in curbing diabetes, if you use it the right way, it can address the root cause of diabetes through proper application of diet, drugs, panchakarma and yoga.

Simple ways to cure diabetes through Ayurveda

  1. Bitter gourd juice: You can take up 30 ml of bitter melon juice every morning on an empty stomach. If you are unable to consume it raw, then you may prepare simple oil-free recipes with it. It is one of the best remedies of diabetes and you can see a lowered diabetes level with consistent consumption of bitter gourd juice.
  2. Ground bay leaf and aloe vera: The mixture of half teaspoon of ground bay leaf, half teaspoon of turmeric and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel can be taken before lunch every day to control blood sugar level.
  3. Fenugreek seeds: Commonly called the Methi seeds, this ingredient can be mixed with a little amount of turmeric along with a glassful of warm milk twice daily to reduce blood sugar problems. You can soak some fenugreek seeds in warm water overnight and chew it on an empty stomach in the morning.
  4. Jamun seeds: The seed powder of Eugenia jambolina, commonly called the Jamun, is very helpful in reducing the blood sugar level. You can have one teaspoon of jamun seed powder followed by a glass of warm water or chew Jamun leaves to prevent the conversion of starch into sugar.
  5. Indian gooseberry: This fruit enriched with high amounts of Vitamin C is commonly called Amla. Having 20 ml Amla juice every day can be prescribed for a diabetic patient. You can also take the amla fruit powder every day to get similar results.
  6. Bark of the banyan tree: If you are suffering from increased levels of blood sugar, then you may consume the decoction of banyan tree bark twice regularly. You will have to take 20 grams of the bark and boil it in 4 glasses of water. When this mixture is reduced to approximately 1 glass, you can consume it after it cools down.

The level and symptoms of diabetes vary among different individuals. Therefore, before you jump on to trying any of these methods, it is recommended to consult an expert who can help you select the most suitable Ayurvedic solution for increased sugar levels.

How to reduce the level of thyroid I am 30 yes and suffering from hypo thyroid from last 6 years and I am taking thyronorm 150mcg?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sameenaji, Taking Thyroxine tablets in the recommended dosage is only method of controlling hypothyroidism. You should check TSH levels periodically (once in 6 months) to see if the dosage of thyroxine tablet is adequate or needs any change. Plus you should avoid soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee.\Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day to maintain weight.

The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Your sexual problem is because of diabetic neuropathy and irrational combination of antihypertensive drugs.Usually these drugs are not combined n propranolol is contraindicated in diabetes because it disturbs lipid profile and masks symptoms of hypoglycaemia.Consult your treating doctor n get modified your antihypertensive drugs.

Hello , pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.

If you are on all those medications listed, I strongly recommend that you do all the 3 tests, preferably on the same day. Also do your hba1c levels, once in 6 months. It gives more information than fbs & post breakfast ppbs. But usually, we advice only fbs & 2 hour ppbs in the morning and this is the bare minimum. The choice is yours.

My self rajesh how I can control my sugar level currently my sugar is around 160.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Check your blood sugar both in fasting and 2 hours after meal.

Diabetes and high blood pressure suggest you need a good cardiologist and diabetologist advise. But you want to control everything by food. A very risky and a life threatening decision. At 63 yrs of age it's not advisable. But if you must and you really want to take risk, then find a holistic medicine expert who offers natural and herbal remedies. I practice exactly the same and my motto is to cure without chemicals. But I am in Pune. Think of online consultation.

The benefits of regular physical activity are: Lower blood glucose levels Better response to insulin Strengthened heart activity Improved blood circulation Lowered cholesterol Improved physical fitness Feeling better People of all ages should include a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity of moderate intensity on most, if not all, days of the week. A regimen of physical activity must be planned judiciously when diabetes complications are present. How to get started Look for an activity that you enjoy. Make sure it's right for your current level of fitness. Walking may be a good way to get started. It is convenient and low in cost. All you need to get started are cotton socks and a pair of supportive shoes that fit well. What will a complete exercise plan look like Flexibility - stretch before you exercise. Resistance Training - this includes lifting light weights to build calorie-burning muscle mass. Aerobic activity - walking, dancing, swimming or biking to burn calories and reduce heart risk. How to keep going Make walking or your other exercise activities part of your daily routine. Finding someone to walk or exercise with can help make your workout more enjoyable. When exercise is enjoyable and social, it is its own reward. This may help you stay motivated. Know that everyone's exercise plans lapse occasionally. Instead of being discouraged, use this time as an opportunity of review your goals. Try to recommit as soon as possible to an enjoyable and healthy level of activity. Calories Burned During Common Activies Activity Cal/Min Cal/Hr Housecleaning, Child care, Bowling, Walking {<3 mph} 3-4 180-240 Walking {4mph}, Golf {pulling cart}, Cycling {6mph}, dancing {general}, Table Tennis 4-5 240-300 Cycling {8mph}, Tennis {doulbes}, Golf {carring clubs}, Aerobics {lowimpact}, Badminton {general}, Gardening 5-6 300-360 Cycling {10mph}, Dancing {fast}, Swimming {light}, Basketball {general} 6-7 360-420 Cycling {11mph}, Water Skiing, Tennis {singles}, Basketball {general} 7-8 420-480 Jogging {5mph}, Cycling {12mph}, Aerobics {high impact}, Football {general}, Walking {upstairs}, Swimming {moderate} 8-10 480-600 Running {5 1/2mph}, Cycling {13mph}, Rope jumping 10-11 600-660 Running {6mph}, Karate, Judo, Swimming {vigorous} 11 or more 660 or more Remember to check with your healthcare team before beginning an exercise routine, {1 mile=1.60934 km} Staying safe Check with your doctor before beginning to exercise. Start slowly. Five or ten minutes a day is a good beginning if you have been very inactive. Wear comfortable, supportive shoes and cotton socks. Check your feet after exercise for any signs of poor fit or injury. Carry a diabetes identification card. Check your blood sugar before and after exercise. This is especially important for anyone who takes insulin, a sulfonylurea or a meglitinide. These medicines may create risk for low blood sugar. Carry something to eat that contains glucose. Use it to prevent or treat low blood sugar if needed. Stretch and warm up at the beginning of your activity. This helps prevent injuries. Drink more liquids that contain no calories, like water, when exercising. If you have leg or chest pains during exercise, stop exercising and call your doctor. Avoid exercising if your fasting blood sugar is above 300 mg/dL (16.7 mmol/L) or under 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L).

Mr Mukund, Primary thing is blood sugars should be in excellent control like fasting close to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<7. Then you may think of taking certain drugs like PDE-5 inhibitors.

Please get a diabetic profile, lipid profile as well as cbc. Look at hba1c%. If that is high and if lipid profile also shows abnormalities then treatment needs to be upgraded. Plus his bmi is 27.85kg/m2, which suggests he is overweight. Hence needs to control weight through exercise and restricted diet. His ideal body weight should be about 61 kgs. So diet has to be planned at this weight and also dependinhg on his daily physical activity. Present dosage of anti diabetic treatment is too less.
