Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly known as diabetes, is one of the most common health conditions faced by millions of people across the globe. It is a condition that stops the body’s ability to react to insulin, leading to abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, which in turn, increases blood sugar levels.
The common symptoms of diabetes mellitus are frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased appetite. If diabetes is not treated on time, it can lead to serious long-term complications like foot ulcers, chronic kidney disease, blindness, cardiovascular disease and stroke, leading to death.
Ayurvedic way to manage diabetes
While there are many ways to manage and control diabetes, Ayurveda is a good solution as it has many tips that would help you control the disease. In Ayurveda, diabetes is known as Madhumeha. According to Ayurveda, diabetes is related to diseases like obesity, pre-diabetes, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome.
According to Ayurveda, a perfect balance between the three fundamental doshas—Vata, Pitta and Kapha lead to good health. Ayurvedic experts explain that diabetes develops as a result of diminished functioning of Agni (digestive fire), which may trigger high blood sugar levels.
Ayurveda suggests increasing the intake of turmeric in our diet to manage diabetes. Drinking water from a copper vessel is also good to prevent complicating disease. Copper prevents fluctuation of blood sugar levels. The water stored in a copper vessel is called Tamra Jal and it helps in balancing all three doshas. According to Ayurvedic experts, diabetic people should consume methi dana sprouts or drink fenugreek water on an empty stomach in the morning. In addition, bitter things like hemp seeds, bitter gourd, amla and aloe vera have been found to be effective in controlling diabetes.
Ayurveda explains that all diseases are due to some imbalance in a person’s doshas. Type 1 diabetes is due to an imbalance of the Vata (air and wind) dosha. Type 2 is caused due to an excess of the Kapha (water and earth) dosha.
Ayurveda also suggests a diabetic person avoid intake of sweets and carbohydrates. It is advisable to include more green and leafy vegetables. Besides all these simple solutions, Ayurvedic medicines like Mehari Churna work wonders on diabetes.
Mehari Churna is an anti-diabetic and anti-hyperglycemic medicine used in Ayurveda. It is a powder of herbs useful in treating pre-diabetes and diabetes mellitus. These herbs are Curcuma Longa (Haridra, turmeric), Emblica Officinalis (amalaki), and Syzygium Cumini (jamun).
Curcuma Longa or turmeric is extracted from the ground roots of the turmeric plant. Ayurveda has recognised the medicinal properties of Curcuma Longa and has used it in many medicines. It works effectively in medicines for diabetes. Studies have suggested that turmeric can decrease the level of glucose in the blood, as well as other diabetes-related complications.
Studies have shown that the Emblica Officinalis or Indian gooseberry or amla consists of important constituents like gallic acid, ellagic acid and corilagin. These consist of antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties, which have anti-diabetic effects. A study also shows amla’s anti-diabetic effects.
Syzygium cumini or jamun are fruits of a medicinal plant recommended as adjuvant therapy in type 2 diabetes. The plant has been extensively studied and some studies have shown its success in reducing type 2 diabetes symptoms.
