Diabetes is a disease but in Ayurveda, it is not considered as a minor disease but a major disease. Why major disease? Because it is not treated by a mere medicine and if not treated on time then it can lead to several other complications. And these complications are not good for the body and health.
As per the Ayurveda, there are many types of diabetes. Approximately 20 types of diabetes can suffer a human being. Out of the 20 types of diabetes, 4 types of diabetes are due to Vata, 6 diabetes types are due to Pitta and other 10 types are caused by Kapha.
Before proceeding further towards the home remedies of diabetes we must know what is diabetes and how it causes? Diabetes is a result of increased blood sugar levels in the body. When it is increased the normal limit then it results in Diabetes. This happens due to the lack of insulin. When we eat food it is broken down into glucose.
With the lack of insulin in the body, the glucose won’t break down into energy. In this case the blood sugar levels of the body increase. How lack of insulin can cause diabetes? This is because insulin is a necessary hormone that is used to change glucose into energy. If we select allopathy then a single drug with some pills and injection can cure diabetes. But the reliable method to treat diabetes is Ayurvedic treatment. Ayurveda reaches the heart of the disease and then kill the root cause of it.
