Naturocure Management of Diabetes
Approximately 20-25% people are affected by diabetes there are three major types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Normally, your body breaks down the sugars and carbohydrates you eat into a special sugar called glucose. Glucose fuels the cells in your body. But the cells need insulin, a hormone, in your bloodstream in order to take in the glucose and use it for energy. With diabetes mellitus, either your body doesn’t make enough insulin, it can’t use the insulin it does produce, or a combination of both.
Since the cells can’t take in the glucose, it builds up in your blood. High levels of blood glucose can damage the tiny blood vessels in your kidneys, heart, eyes, or nervous system. That’s why diabetes especially if left untreated can eventually cause heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and nerve damage to nerves in the feet.
Risk factors for diabetes are obesity, family history of diabetes, inactivity, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, triglycerides, pcod and poor eating habits of fatty & spicy foods
The objective of Naturopathic Treatment of diabetes is to reduce high level of glucose in the blood and to bring it under control and ensure the overall wellbeing of the patient in a natural way. And the good news is that it can be easily brought under control by a change in lifestyle and regulated diet.
Diabetes can be managed through a combination of Dietary changes, Yoga, Pranayam, LDM Meditation, Naturopathy and Ayurveda Panchkarma under expert guidance.
- Diabetes can be managed by regular yoga practice and naturopathy treatment.
- Diet control is necessary for diabetic patients.
