Battling diabetes is a life long struggle. People who suffer from diabetes have to live a life filled with subtractions rather than additions. The only additions in their lives are medicines and doctor's visits. For all its claims, allopathy has only managed to control the spread of diabetes to a certain extent. The reason for the same is very simple. This branch of medicine works to reduce the effect of diabetes in the body. But no matter how powerful the dosage, its effect gets diluted as it passes through the human body and out of it. This leads to a vicious circle of taking heavy medication and suffering from side-effects.
This is one of the main reasons why people are turning to an Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes. The concept of Ayurveda is a number of centuries old. In fact, it precedes allopathy or modern medicine as it is called and even precedes the industrial revolution. This form of treatment was devised in India. This focuses on the use of herbs and plants to make medicines. If you take a look around you, you will notice that there are many plants in nature.
As a casual observer, we may ignore a plant because it does not produce flowers. But for a person practicing Ayurveda, this is not the case. They have a detailed manual available to them with the benefits of each and every plant in nature. The manual tells them exactly which disease is treated with which plant. It also shows them how the plant should be processed and the quantities needed for each dosage.
So what are the actual benefits of this mode of treatment? Well the first benefit is that it is entirely natural. When medicines made from plants are consumed, the body recognizes them as “friendly”. This means that it knows that it has to break it down completely and digest it. This does not happen with allopathy medicines. When they are consumed, they are dissolved by the stomach acids and then a portion of the medicinal value is received by the body.
The second benefit is the complete lack of side-effects. The natural properties of the medicine ensure that the person does not suffer from any type of complication. He or she can take the medicine and go about their daily routine with ease.
However, when it comes to the Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes, there is one thing that every patient needs to understand. They are not as fast acting as the allopathy course of treatment. Instead, their slow release mechanism ensures that they remain in the body for a longer period of time. So when a patient consumes the second dose, he or she is adding to the amount of the first dose available in the body.
This method of slow healing may seem frustrating to some. However the fact is that their sugar levels will normalize faster and remain normalized for a much longer period of time. This will benefit them in the long run.
