For example, one of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes. Neuropathy is a disease which affects nerves that carry information from the brain and spinal cord. Instead of using pills or other such medicines, you can opt for an Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes in order to cure neuropathy.
What is Ayurveda and how it helps with diabetes?
Ayurveda is a belief that sugar levels can be controlled by medicines too…but also, a rigorous diet regime. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that is caused by the pancreas unable to produce the required amount of insulin or when the body is designated to not effectively use insulin that is produced.
It seems as if the only treatment is rejuvenating the body entirely to discover a recovery.
In Ayurveda, diabetes is known as Madhumeha (‘Madhu’ meaning honey and ‘Meha’ meaning urine). Madhumeha is categorized as ‘Vataj Meha’ (‘Vata’ being an Ayurvedic humor that symbolizes wind and dryness).
The deterioration of the human body is the indication that the Vata is impaired. Maximum deterioration of ‘dhatus’ (body tissue) occurs in this type of disease. Therefore, this is the reasoning behind why all vital organs are affected by diabetes.
Another fundamental cause of diabetes is complications with digestion, which leads to the accumulation of digestive impurities (known as ‘ama’) and this can cause chaos in the pancreatic cells and eventually impair the production of insulin.
The Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes attempts to proportionate sugar levels and endeavor on the root cause of the disease, restoring the patient’s immunity, reinforce digestion and assisting the patient to live a healthy lifestyle. Alongside medication, lifestyle changes will be able to rejuvenate the body’s cells and tissues, allowing insulin to be formed suitably.
Research suggests that Triphala (a type of Ayurvedic remedy) may play a beneficial role in cancer therapy, heart disease, and weight loss and helps constipation relief as well as diabetes. In this way, the Ayurvedic treatments can offer a variety of cures rather than just the one.
