AYURVEDIC MEDICINE FOR DIABETES & HEART HEALTH

As opposed to modern medicine, Ayurvedic medicines that help control diabetes work on completely rejuvenating the body instead of focusing on balancing the sugar levels only. Ayurveda aims at targeting the root cause of the disease while strengthening the body’s immunity and digestion.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest holistic healing systems of the world that originated in India and can be an effective means of treating diabetes. Formed from two Sanskrit words – Ayur (life) and Veda (knowledge) – Ayurveda means “the science of life”. The treatment methodologies and medicines in Ayurveda are based on the belief that all living beings are governed by the five elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. Besides, all human beings have a specific constitution that is determined by three fundamental bodily energies or doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Any imbalance in these energies leads to diseases.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a group of related diseases that affect the body’s natural ability to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood. Glucose is the primary source of energy for our cells and the source of fuel for our brain.

Blood glucose levels in healthy individuals are regulated by several hormones, including insulin, allowing glucose to be used for fuel. But in the case of individuals with diabetes, the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin (called type 1 diabetes) or isn’t capable of using it well (called type 2 diabetes). In some cases of diabetes, both conditions can occur. As glucose is not efficiently incorporated into the cells, it stays in the blood resulting in serious problems.

The Ayurvedic View

As the sugar levels increase in the blood, its presence can be detected in the urine as well. That is why diabetes is referred to as Madhumeha in Ayurveda, where “Madhu” means honey and “Meha” is to urinate. Ayurveda understands that diabetes is caused by multiple factors, including the tendencies inherited at birth and the imbalance of all the three doshas. However, diabetes is majorly categorised as Vataj Meha – a condition resulting from the aggravation of Vata. Diabetes affects all the vital organs of the body and deteriorates the “dhatus” or body tissues. These symptoms are also associated with the impairment of Vata.

Ayurvedic management of diabetes involves medications as well as dietary and lifestyle changes to help the patient lead an overall healthy life. The below-mentioned tips, if followed, can bring immense benefits to manage and control diabetes.

Get up early

Getting up early in the morning will help to take some time out for exercise. A good brisk walk in the morning is the best form of exercise for people with diabetes. They can also try yoga and meditation to relieve stress and clear their mind. Jogging, cycling, and swimming can be done according to health conditions.

A glass of lukewarm water with two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice is a great way to start the day as well.

Breakfast

Eating a breakfast with high fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrates can help to reduce fasting blood sugar, A1c and weight. Diabetics can include eggs, unsweetened oatmeal, whole-grain bread, cottage cheese, fruits, and nuts in their breakfast.

Lunch

Lightly cooked green vegetables like cabbage, spinach, asparagus, mushrooms, turnips, etc. can be eaten for lunch. In addition, whole wheat bread, sprouts, salad, boiled rice, lentils are good options for lunch as well.

Healthy snacks

As people with diabetes shouldn’t remain empty stomachs for long, they must carry filling snacks with them all the time. They can choose a handful of nuts and seeds over cheese, chips or crackers

in the evening, they can have a glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice.
