Clinical Studies of 60 Patients with Ayurveda and Diabetes 2
Total years in practice: 5
Diabetes attained a global threat status in the year 2000. This emerged as the most important lifestyle disorder. This not only affects one individual but adversely impacts generations to come.
My clinical studies with 60 patients of Diabetes Mellitus type 2 (2000-2002), and 200 patients of Metabolic Syndrome(2005-2007) did reestablish the golden principles of Ayurveda in the management of these lifestyle disorders.
For all the clients who had Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 or Metabolic Syndrome, as a rule, after a complete physical examination, pulse examination (Nadi Pareeksha) and lab testing, the plan focuses upon four entities:
These tools apply differently to all as no two individuals are the same and Ayurveda being non-mechanical, no stereotype is practiced. In most cases, reducing their routine western medicine is the first target and its achievement is subjective to the precautions & instructions followed by the client. Many are able to shun most medicine and are well managed with diet and lifestyle modifications.
The Diabetes Mellitus type 2 (2000-2002) study showed a significant improvement in the Glycosylated Hemoglobin (GHb / HbA1c). This inferred an overall improvement at the cellular metabolism of glucose.
Some of the herbs used for Diabetes Disorder:
Ayurveda Treatment Protocol:
The clients were advised a standard Ayurveda diet and lifestyle protocol, which included calorie restriction / intermittent fasting and an ideal daily routine. The herbs operated through their pharmacodynamics of Rasa, Guna, Veerya, Vipaka, and Prabhava.
The goal is to ensure the non-chemical management of DM type2 and Metabolic Syndrome for all. This can best be routed through educating one and all regarding the golden principles of Ayurveda against LifeStyle Diseases.
