Diabetes & Ayurveda Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic insufficiencies in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar) for a considerable period either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond to the available insulin adequately, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience A) Frequent Urination (Poly-uria) B) Increased Thirst (Poly-Dipsia) C) Increased Hunger (Poly-Phagia) Diabetes in general term is referred as “Prameha” in Ayurveda. However Ayurveda further elaborates Prameha based on 3 main types and 20 Sub types. Chronic Diabetes Mellitus can be broadly referred as Madhumeha based on the presenting symptoms and associated complications. According to Ayurveda the following are the causes of Prameha. • Lack of Exercise • Sedentary lifestyle • Excessive intake of Milk and Milk products like Paneer, Cheese , Curd etc • Excessive intake of Meat, Fish etc Prameha is mainly caused due to vitiation of Kapha dosha (from above reasons) leading to derangement of Pitta and Vata as well. Also increase in Kapha dosha causes increase in Kleda (Aqueous) and Meda (Fat) in our body. Due to which there is increase in frequency of urination (kleda is excreted out by urine) and obesity (Meda). Symptoms of Diabetes: ● Blurry Vision ● Skin Infections ● Burning of palms and soles ● Increased hunger ● Excessive Thirst ● Sweet taste to mouth etc. ● Wounds that take time to heal ● Unexplained extreme fatigue ● Excessive urine formation and frequent urination Treatment: Ayurvedic line of treatment iscustom-made based on individual’s constitution and considering the Prakriti of patient with Dosha predominance. Other factors like hereditary, food habits etc. are also considered to prepare a specific line of treatment. Usually, Type1 Diabetes patients or Insulin dependent Diabetes is advised “Bruhana”(Body building)medication and diet to increase dhatus in body. Panchakarma is not advised to such patients. Diet is also considered as a kind of medicine in Ayurveda as each food has certain qualities to affect the doshas in certain ways. In Type 2 Diabetes, Purification of body or Shodhana is advised by Panchakarma method depending on predominance of doshas. E.g. patients with Kapha dosha are advised Vamana(emetics) and patients with Pitta dosha are advised Virechana (purgation) Panchakarma treatment and those with Vata predominace are advises Basti (Enema). Internal medicines also play an integral part. Ayurvedic medicines not only lower down the blood glucose level but also improve our metabolism making muscles more receptive towards glucose. These medicines if taken regularly lower down the doses of Allopathic medicines to a greater extent thereby reducing side effects of those medicines. However proper thought and in-depth analysis of the patient’s body constitution has to be analyzed before deciding upon the treatment regimen. Dietary changes are advised according to the prakriti of the patient. Exercises are a must for the patients of diabetes as exercising improves absorption of glucose by muscles. External therapies like Udwartanam, Abhyangam, Pinda sweda are carried out in various complications of diabetes.

ACNE /PIMPLES Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules are all types of acne. Causes: Your skin has tiny holes called pores which can become blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and dirt. When this occurs, you may develop a pimple or “zit.” If your skin is repeatedly affected by this condition, you may have acne. However there are many causes of getting acne like, • Pollution • Stress • Faulty lifestyle like late night sleeping or night shifts, excessive use of cosmetics etc • Faulty Dietary habits like excessive intake of fatty foodstuffs like chocolates, cakes etc • Hormonal changes • Certain medication like steroids, birth control pills etc Ayurvedic view: Ayurveda refers acne as “Yuvanpidaka”. Yuvan means adolescents and pidaka means pustules or papules. The primary cause is impairment of all the three doshas, predominantly the pitta and kapha dosha, which further vitiates the rakta and meda dhatus (blood and fat tissues). According to predominance of doshas acne are classifies as Vataj, Pittaj & Kaphaj types. Small blackish acne are of Vataj types. Big, red swllen papules are of pittaj type. Big, pus filled acne are of Kaphaj type. Symptoms: • Whiteheads • Blackheads • Pimples Treatment: Allopathic treatment includes anti-inflammatory medicines, vitamin A derivatives, Antibiotics and local antiseptic creams. However ayurvedic treatment is holistic. Because acne is deep-rooted, use of local creams, antibiotics and lotions only masks the symptoms. Ayurvedic treatment includes: 1. Detoxification or Panchakarma treatment. Vaman or therapeutic Vomitting is induced to get rid of excessive Kapha dosha. Virechana or therapeutic purgation (loose motions) is given to remove excessive pitta dosha from the body. 2. Internal medicines to remove rakta dushti.(blood purification). 3. Local lepa application to prevent scarring and black marks. 4. Dietary changes 5. Lifestyle changes. All the treatments should be carried under strict medical supervision only.

Hypothyroidism : Hypothyroidism is a clinical condition which results due to inadequate production of thyroid hormones for prolonged periods or resistance of the peripheral (body) tissues to the effects of thyroid hormones. According to Ayurveda, Thyroid gland is primarily under activity of Agni ( Bio-Digestive fire) of our body. Agni at cellular level is inhibited by multiple reasons leading to diminished metabolism in the body leading to Hypothyroidism. As multiple systems are involved in the impairment related organs also show diminished functions in this condition. A subdued Kapha under the influence of vitiated vata is primarily responsible for impaired body functions. Common Symptoms :  Fatigue  Weakness  Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight  Coarse, dry hair  Dry, rough pale skin  Hair loss  Cold intolerance (you can't tolerate cold temperatures like those around you)  Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches  Constipation  Depression  Irritability  Memory loss  Abnormal menstrual cycles  Decreased libido Treatment: Ayurveda provides a holistic approach in treating Hypothyroidism. Ayurveda aims at detoxifying the body at the tissue level in the form of Shodhana which is done through Panchakarma. Following Panchakarma procedures are carried out in Hypothyroid Patients. 1. Vaman: A therapeutically induced vomiting capable to clear all blocked body channel which is primarily indicated for diseases especially in the Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) region. The subdued Kapha dosha is responsible for slowing down of the metabolic activity in the body. Vaman removes the excess Kapha from the body thereby clearing the obstructed hormonal axis. Also Thyroid gland is located in the neck, which is the prime site for Kapha dosha. 2. Virechan: In this loose motions are induced to clear all the blocked channels. However Virechan is more helpful in fluffiness of the body which is developed by the vitiated Vata and Kapha. 3. Nasya: Nasya is instillation of specifically prepared herbal oils in the nostrils in specific quantities. It helps clear the excess kapha accumulated along the hypothalamus pituitary Thyroid axis as it is mentioned in Ayurveda – “Nasa (Nose) is the entrance for head”. Any disease related to upper part of chest can be effectively managed with the help of Nasya. External therapies like Shirodhara, Takradhara, Udwartanam, Shiro Lepam, are also carried out according to the symptoms of Patient. Along with the detoxification procedures internal medicines are also given to rectify the vitiated Vata and Kapha. The medicines are in the form of Herbal Decoctions (KADHA), tablets, and some tried and tested churnaas (fine powders). Dietary advice to regulate the bodily doshas is also an essential part of treatment. Request you to consult the ayurveda physician for an in-depth body (Prakriti) analysis and precautions to be undertaken.
