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.

In Ayurveda, Ahara (diet), Nidra (sleep) and Brahmacarya (abstinence) are recognized as the three Upasthambhas (sub pillars) essential for the smooth running of life. Aahar is considered as one of the major contributors in longetivity of life. Majority of diseases are caused due to lack of proper knowledge about the proper food intake. Let us see how the food we eat can be a reason of our sufferings. Our nature is made up of Panchamahabhoot i.e Aakash (Space), Vayu(Air), Teja(fire), Jala(Water) & Prithvi(Earth). These elements are also present in our body in the form of Tridoshas – Vata, Pitta & Kapha. Or in other words we can say these tridoshas are the biological derivatives of these Panchamahabhoots. All the dietary articles present around us are composed of Panchamahabhootas and hence affect the tridoshas in our body. A balanced diet in Ayurveda is planned in relation to the known Panchabhautic composition and Tridoshic impacts in the living body. Food (Ahara) and lifestyle (Vihara) significantly affect one’s overall health and the increase of metabolic and degenerative diseases are the result of adaptation of modern life style without taking in to consideration the Prakriti (body constitution), age, surrounding area, methods of cooking, season etc. Like for instance, “Curd shouldn’t be taken at night.”.... But this fact is conveniently neglected by many people and they tend to suffer from digestion issues like acidity, constipation etc. There are many rules related to Aahar mentioned in classic ayurvedic texts which are called as AAHAR VIDHI. They are as follows- • Food should be warm and freshly prepared while consuming (Frozen food is a fashion these days) • It should be Snigdha or unctuous as it facilitates digestion. (As Per American Heart Association also, Fats help your body absorb some nutrients and produce important hormones, too) • Eat in appropriate quantity. (Overeating causes increase in weight, and digestion related issues) • Eat after digestion of previous food. The important sign of digestion of previous meals is you feel hungry again. Sense of fullness indicates your digestion is slow. • Eat that food which is not antagonist in potency. These are called as viruddha ahar. For ex- Milk along with citrus fruits (Milkshakes, icecreams), fish along with milk, Milk with salty biscuits, curd rice with pickels and many more. Intake of incompatable diet is responsible for the causation of blindness, Ascites, fistula in ano, abdominal distention, stiffness, varieties of anaemia, indigestions, various skin diseases, diseases of intestines, swelling, gastritis, fever, rhinitis, and infertility. • Eating in a place with pleasant and calm environment, with a proper concentration on eating only.(These days television is our best buddy to enjoy food with.) • Eat peacefully. Haste is Waste. Eating hurriedly causes many diseases like gastritis, constipation.(Getting up 10 minutes early in the morning will help you eat peacefully without missing you local train or an important meeting.) • Do not eat too leisurely as that food would become cold and there will be irregularity in digestion • Don’t talk or laugh while eating. (Discussion during lunch or dinner is a corporate norm these days. Kindly avoid) • Eat rightly, considering your constitution. (Consult a ayurvedic doctor for advice on your body constitution). We at VED CLINIC, analyze your body constitution and calorie requirement according to your body type, age, BMI, nature of work like sedentary or strenuous, diseases you are suffering from and CUSTOMIZE your AYURVEDIC DIET PLAN accordingly. Because, “When Diet is wrong medicine is of no use and when Diet is correct medicine is of no need”.. Ayurvedic proverb.

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.
