Diabetes According to Ayurveda
Diabetes mellitus, also known as Diabetes is a metabolic disease which causes elevation in blood glucose levels. The hormone insulin transfers sugar from the blood to the cells, which is stored and used for energy supply.
Ayurveda classifies Diabetes as one of the Prameha diseases. Prameha means excessive secretion of diseased urine. It can be divided into two types:
Sahaja Prameha/Beeja dosha- This includes, patients with prameha since birth or who are born to parents suffering from this ailment.
Apathya nimitaja prameha/doshaj- This type of prameha is manifested in patients with bad eating habits and an unhealthy lifestyle leading to aggravated doshas.
The name comes from the fact that diabetic urine tastes and smells like honey. Each individual is described by Ayurveda as a unique blend of Doshas. There are three Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The doshas Vata and Pitta are dry and airy, while Kapha is cold, heavy, and slimy.
According to Ayurveda, the treatment of prameha is also dependent on the individual’s body constitution i.e. prakriti. It is a requirement in today’s era to switch over to a healthy lifestyle along with a suitable diet and right treatment for the specific body type. Studies and research have shown that polyherbal formulations tend to have a good effect on all body types.
