Diabetes is generally referred to as a silent killer medical condition that also has a psychological effect on the affected individual. Diabetes can be managed by allopathic medications, but the side effects of these medications can have a detrimental effect on the human body. The amalgamation of alternative treatments with the ongoing allopathic medications for diabetes can be very helpful in managing the diabetic condition. Although there are mixed opinions on alternative treatments, most diabetic patients have found considerable relief in alternative treatments such as Ayurveda. There is surely an ayurvedic cure for diabetes, but it is important to follow the guidelines that are laid down by the treatment. Before the treatment of diabetes, it is important that you understand the types of diabetes and the treatment options that you have for this medical condition. There are two main types of diabetes—type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is generally found in children (between ages 9 and 15). The exact cause of type 1 diabetes is still unknown, but most researchers point towards auto immune disorder as the main reason for this kind of diabetes. The type 2 diabetes is acquired after puberty due to lack of exercise, intake of more sugar, sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, increased stress, etc. If you are not suffering from diabetes, you can prevent it by: changing your lifestyle, reducing carbohydrate in your diet, daily exercises, reducing weight, etc. Before you try diabetes medicines in Ayurveda, you can try out some home remedies. For example, you can soak 100 grams of fenugreek seeds in one glass of water and in the morning, you can consume this water. You can also mash the fenugreek seeds, filter the water and then drink it. Some of the most common allopathic drugs used for the ayurvedic cure for diabetes are Insulin, Acarbose, Biguanidine, Sulphonylureas etc. If you have been recommended any of these drugs, then you will have to make sure that you consult your doctor before you take any ayurvedic medication. These days, diabetes is rampant amongst the urban people mainly because of the lifestyle. Making changes to the lifestyle can be very beneficial to the urban people, but most of them prefer bizarre life styles. It is commonly said, “Prevention is better than cure”, but alas, there are very few people who are taking diabetes very seriously. Diabetes is a long lasting medical condition, which the body cannot fight well. Therefore, you will have to rely on external medications and lifestyle changes to control this disease. If you do not control diabetes at the right time, it can damage your internal organs and also cause a stroke. Most diabetes medicines in Ayurveda will help remove all toxins from the body, purify the blood, and reduce blood sugar levels. In addition to Ayurvedic medications, you can also try meditation and exercises. In addition, you can also follow a healthy diet regime that will increase the intake of anti-diabetic food stuffs. Diabetes is a killer disease and you should be fully determined to defeat it.
