Nutrients that can help to support a healthy conception include:

  • Antioxidants “ protect cells from damage by free radicals in environmental and other toxins
  • Coenzyme (Q10) “ an important antioxidant and ˜energy nutrient within every cell
  • Vitamin E “ an antioxidant that may promote circulation to the reproductive system, including to the placenta
  • Vitamin C “ an antioxidant important within the ovary itself. As the developing egg needs vitamin C to mature and ovulate, more vitamin C is used up around the time of ovulation
  • Mixed carotenoids “ Vitamin A (retinoid) is involved in creating DNA. In small amounts it is essential for healthy foetal development, particularly for the immune system and eyes. However, you should avoid taking too much Vitamin A
  • Manganese “ involved in enzyme functions that have antioxidant effects and transfer genetic information
  • Zinc “ one of the most important nutrients for a healthy reproductive system. Involved in sexual development, ovulation and the menstrual cycle
  • Selenium “ an antioxidant that supports normal conception
  • Omega-3 fatty acids “ improving omega-3 fatty acids ensures that a woman’s fat tissue stores retain a reserve of these fatty acids for the developing foetus, a healthy pregnancy and optimally fed newborn
  • B-Vitamins “ Vitamin B12, B6 and folate are three B vitamins significant for the reproductive system

I have been suffering sugar since 5 years then suggest me best medicine for sugar.

I have been suffering sugar since 5 years then suggest me best medicine for sugar.
No details of present medications, test reports etc. You must reduce your weight to about 64 Kg. It is not the best medicine but most appropriate and effective medicine is selected by your treating doctor taking into consideration your sugar levels, average sugar levels, HbA1c, weight and other parameters. Regular follow up, monitoring and review is a must.

DEAR SIR, IS WATER MELON IS GOOD FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES PATIENTS? Thanks in advance for the reply.
Dear Sir , Water melon is good choice of fruit for diabetes because of its GI & GL . GI-Glycemic Index is the effect of carbohydrates on blood glucose & Gl- Glycemic load which which combines both quality & quantity of actual carbohydrates consume. So for for watermelon both comes to low if you considered one cup or one plate of it. For any further clinical assistant kindly revert back to me. Thanking You.

Diabetes and its Ayurvedic Management

Diabetes and its Ayurvedic Management

Diabetes is an abnormal condition where the sugar-levels in humans are higher than usual. Ayurveda can be used efficiently in treating this condition. In Ayurvedic terms, Madhumeha is the allopathic treatment of diabetes. In Indian terms, diabetes is known to the common man as Prameha, which is said to be divided into 3 major types – Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Lack of exercise and intake of food having excess of snigdha, ushna and guru types are said to be the chief cause of prameha.

Along with drugs and medications, Ayurveda stresses on the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. The management modules that can be categorized are:

  1. Vyaayam (Exercise)
  2. Panchakarma (Procedures for Bio-purification)
  3. Pathya (Regulation in diet)
  4. The use of therapy (Medications)

The individual’s constitution highly affects the ayurvedic treatment of prameha. Some of them are:

  1. Obstruction in srothus
  2. Ahara and Vihara
  3. Dosha predominance of disease
  4. Hereditary factors
  5. The prakrithi of the patient
  6. Manasika Prakrithi
  7. Dooshya vitiation

Management of diabetes can be done using a variety of herbs. Some of them are:

  1. Vjaysar
  2. Eugenia jambolana (Jamun beej churna)
  3. Pterocarpus marsupium (Vijaysar churna)
  4. Ficus bengalensis (Nyagrodha twaka churna - banyan tree bark)
  5. Shilajeet
  6. Momordica chirantia Karvellaka (Karella – Bitter Gourd)
  7. Kirat tikata (Chirayata)
  8. Embelica officinalis (Amla)

It is possible that certain patients are unable to respond to insulin or hypoglemic medicines. In this case, an ayurvedic physician may prescribe some ayurvedic drugs such as:

  1. Dhatri Nisha
  2. Chandraprabha vati
  3. Vasant kusumakar rasa

Diabetes is not just a lack of insulin. It is most probable cause is plain poor maintenance of your body. It 's cure will need to include all of these things discussed. By doing all, diet, herbs, exercise and stress management, you can certainly take care of your Diabetes.

As an ancient science based on lifestyle related treatment methods that include herbs, massages and life changing tweaks, Ayurveda also provides various methods of managing this ailment. Here's how!

  1. Bitter Gourd: Known as an ingredient that is rich in antioxidants, this can be consumed to take care of diabetes. You will need to first remove the peel of at least four to five bitter gourds before crushing them to create a paste. This paste has to be put through a sieve so that the juice of the gourds can be extracted. You will then have to drink this juice every morning, on an empty stomach.
  2. Cinnamon: From treating coughs and colds to diabetes and other serious ailments, this is a wonder spice that can be found in most Indian kitchens. You can start by boiling a litre of water and letting it simmer on the gas for about twenty minutes. Thereafter, you can add three teaspoons of cinnamon powder to this simmering water. Strain this mixture and drink the entire batch every day to clear out the toxins.
  3. Fenugreek Seeds: For this, you will need to take about four to five tablespoons of fenugreek seeds. These will have to be soaked in a glass of water or about 250ml of water, overnight. In the morning, the softened seeds will need to be crushed before the mixture is strained. The water that escapes should be collected and ingested every day for a period of two months.
  4. Turmeric: Turmeric is a powerful and well-known ingredient that is used for curing and managing many ailments. You will need to mix about half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of amla powder as well as half a tablespoon of methi seeds or fenugreek seeds powder. This concoction will have to mixed in half a glass of water and taken daily on an empty stomach. This can be used by patients suffering from heart ailments as well.
  5. Diet: Cereals like ragi, corn, kulit, green millet, and barley are known to beneficial for patients suffering from diabetes. Leafy greens are also a must for such patients along with protein-rich foods like soya beans.

Periodical testing of Blood Sugar Fasting , 2 hrs after principal meal and before dinner is necessary. HbA1c now will also help. Avoiding of free sugar, like sugar, jaggery, honey and sweet fruits for about a fortnight maintaining standard Body weight and then consulting a Diabetologist will establish possibility of Gestational Diabetes for which you need an expert advice. Present reading should be OK as of now.

Hello, Diabetes is a metabolic problem which can lead to other minor/major complications. You have not mentioned your cholesterol values so that I can recommend you to visit a physician who can prescribe you cholesterol lowering medicines. Ideally unless the values, are really high it can be really managed well without medications. All you need to correct is your lifestyle and eating habits.

He should have sugar free diet, also avoid honey and jagary (Gur. He should avoid sweets and sweet fruits like grapes, banana,mangoes and cheeku. Other fruits should not be taken in large amount as they will increase glucose as well as potassium level which are not good for a diabetic patient whose kidneys are affected.
