Cure DIABETES through naturopathy

Updated on April 14, 2016

Diabetes, or Diabetes Mellitus to give it its proper medical name, is a disorder of assimilation. When the pancreas becomes inactive or atrophied and ceases to produce insulin, the body is unable to convert the sugar into energy for the muscles. Its chief symptoms are weakness and loss of weight, great thirst and increase in the amount of urine passed there is sometimes voracious appetite but the patient gradually becomes more and more emaciated. Owing to poor vitality of the tissues, various skin eruptions like boils and carbuncles appear. There may be itching in the groins and eczema. a serious complication could be gangrene of the skin of the feet, beginning with the toes. A curious phenomenon is that the younger patient, the more rapid is the course of the disease.

Allopathy depends mostly on administration of insulin to dissolve the sugar in the blood and forbidding starchy and sugary foods to the patients. Modern science has not been able to pinpoint the real cause of the disease :what is available is only generalization such as obese persons are more susceptible to the disease, it attacks males more than females, or it runs in the families, etc. Allopaths while recommending a sugar-free diet to the diabetics prescribe a high protein diet like fish, eggs, meat and lentils leading to an imbalance in his food. Advising patients to take take saccharine instead of sugar, the allopaths expose them to the danger of slow poisoning.

naturopathy cure for diabetes

As in the cases of other diseases, naturopathy recommends a diet and no drugs. The main purpose is to help the body to assimilate the sugar into the system and that can be achieved by a special diet. I would recommend about one kilo of curd made from cow's milk and various types of gourds without salt. The greener the vegetables, the more beneficial would be. Sour fruits like tomatoes, oranges, pineapples, rose apple, solanum could be taken with advantage. The patient can also take one or two chapatis made of flour which has not been passed through sieve. The person suffering from diabetes must take long walks daily. Remember that the disease strikes generally those who lead a sedentary life, and are used to rich diet poor in nutrition.

Cereals, sugar and sugary preparations should be avoided for some time. The other method of treating the disease is by fasting for a couple of days then eating sour fruit only for a week during which green vegetables may also be alternated with the fruits. Curd made from cow's milk must be inevitable part of every meal. If the curd is not available, about 50-gm of germinated gram may be taken with every meal. After about a fortnight of this regimen, the patient can take bread made of whole flour. During the period of fasting, lukewarm enema should be taken every day.

Diabetics must take physical exercise as that helps to utilize the blood sugar. walking, jogging is the best exercise i would recommend. Hip bath is extremely beneficial in this case of diabetes, particularly for patients suffering from constipation. For lathery skin most diabetics develop, the best exercise is vigorous rubbing of the skin with rough towel for fifteen minutes before bath with cold water. A diabetic must also try yoga and must always try to remain cheerful and keep his poise. Recommended yoga are :

  • dhanur-asana
  • Pranayama –There are 8 types of Pranayama mentioned in Hatha Yoga. One of the basic preparations for Pranayama is Nadi Shodhan Pranayama or alternate nostril breathing, this type is found useful in diabetes as Alternate nostril breathing has calming effect on nervous system, which reduces stress levels, helping in diabetes treatment. Also research has shown that Bhramari and Bhasrika Pranayama help in diabetes
  • Cleansing Processes – Master cleansing or Shankha Prakshalana is recommended for diabetes, complete Shankha Prakshalana takes 1 day and is recommended once in 6 months, but smaller version of it can be done 3 times a week. This process cleanses the Gastro Intestinal tract completely. This process is done by drinking 2 glasses of warm, salty water and lemon juice is added to it. Then performing 6 different exercises, this exercises speed up the peristaltic movements and one needs to evacuate bowels. In 2 hours about 7 to 8 bowels are completed till the clear water is evacuated.

    Note- This is a process which is to be practiced only under the expert guidance and under observation of medical professionals.
