Diabetes and Its Permanent Cure With Homeopathic Medicines


By Dr. Prashant Ruikar , Homeopathy

Diabetes is a disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar levels in the body. It is a metabolic disorder that leads to various symptoms such as frequent urination, thirst and increased hunger. It is either caused by reduced sensitivity of the body to insulin or reduced production of insulin by the pancreas.

Causes of Diabetes Type 2:

Type 2 basically occurs due to defective insulin secretion combined with defective responsiveness of the body to the insulin (also called Insulin resistance). Due to both these factors, hyperglycemia starts occurring in the body. Type II is strongly associated with obesity and with increasing age. Sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc pose as risk factors for developing Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can begin at any age though it is not very common in childhood. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin but later it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. This ultimately results in Hyperglycemia (high levels of glucose in circulation).

Homeopathy For Diabetes:

Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of the body. Moreover, homeopathy recognizes the importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in the management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.

When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment along with intake of hypoglycemic drugs and/or insulin can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover, timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at a minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. However, it may be noted that there is no substitute of insulin in homeopathy.

Homeopathic treatment does not target one illness, an organ, a body part or a symptom. Remedies are prescribed based on an assembly of presenting symptoms, who the person is, and how he or she experiences and copes with their stresses in life. Treating diabetes is no different.

Homeopathic treatments for diabetes aim at rooting out the cause rather than just treating the symptoms.
