What is Diabetes in Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine, which is based on the idea of balancing three doshas namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha along with natural diet, proper life style and some herbal remedies.
In Ayurveda, Diabetes is known as Madhumeha. There are many references you get in ancient Ayurveda books – diabetes as Madhumeh but some authors has mentioned this diseases as Kshodrameha too. Kshodra is a synonym for honey so named so.
According to Ayurveda, the existence of this disease is due to the imbalance of three doshas - Kapha, Pitta and Vata. These three body energies should be balanced to maintain the healthy body. In the initial state of diabetes, there is Kapha imbalance and with the excessive accumulation of "earth", it disseminates throughout the tissues, which blocks the urinary channels and results in the Vata dysfunction. Then it causes various urinary infections and leads into the excess of pitta.
Diabetes results the increase in blood sugar levels, either due to inadequate production of insulin or inability of body cells to respond for insulin, but in some cases both the factors together are present. There are various problems associated with the high sugar level in the blood, like it can damage nerves and blood vessels.
