Our body has a gland called ‘Pancreas’, which secrets insulin, a hormone. Insulin functions as a digestive agent for the carbohydrates present in our food and strengthen parts of the body by providing glucose, which is a form of energy. But sometimes, due to certain reasons, the pancreas stops functioning and carbohydrates (sugar) are not digested resulting in the accumulation of glucose in the blood. This results in “diabetes”.
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to utilize glucose properly resulting in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and sugar in urine. This happens due to deficiency of insulin in the pancreas or insulin resistance.
Insulin is a hormone that enables the body to use glucose required for producing energy. Insulin is a hormone produced by specialized cells (Beta cells in the Islets of Langerhans) in the pancreas that allows the body to use and store glucose.
Mainly there are two types of diabetes. Type-I Diabetes-known as Juvenile diabetes (onset or insulin dependent diabetes) where the body stops producing insulin. In such cases, daily insulin supplement in the form of insulin is required for survival. This usually develops in children and in young adults, but can occur at any age. This condition is called IDDM (Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus).
Type-II diabetes is usually seen in adults. In such cases, body produces insulin insufficient to convert food into energy. This usually occurs in people who are above 40 years of age, over weight or having a family history of diabetes.
The symptoms of diabetes are: excessive thirst, increased hunger, non-healing wound, frequent urination, blurred vision, unexplained extreme fatigue, weight loss, recurrent infection. By the process of microangiopathy and macroangiopathy, Diabetes mellitus may cause widespread damage to the human body in the form of cardiac failure, hypertension, cerebral stroke, cataract, end stage renal damage (ESRD) and non traumatic amputation of the lower limbs.
Several factors such as genetic, environmental, life style etc. cause hyperglycemia (persistent) leading to human body deterioration. Diabetes mellitus is the leading cause of death in developing and underdeveloped nations. At present, it is a major cause of concern.
The therapeutic use of exercise is well documented in 600 BC, by Sushruta in Indian system of treatment. Exercise helps in lowering blood sugar levels and enhances the body’s ability to utilize glucose. It can help in resolving the risk factor of resistance to insulin. Regular exercise reduces LDL (bad cholesterol) and increases the level of HDL (good cholesterol). Exercise helps maintain body weight.
Diabetes mellitus occurs throughout the world; however, it is more common in the developing countries. This is due to change in life style. According to WHO, in 2004, more than 150million people worldwide were reported suffering from diabetes mellitus. Due to growing incidence, it is presumed that by 2025, this figure may be doubled.
In India, it is seen that it is the 7th leading cause of death. Various agencies through survey have confirmed that nearly 25 million people are suffering from diabetes and this number may increase. Nearly more than 90% of the people above 40 years are prone to this disease.
Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for about 90 % of diabetes cases in the United States, is most common in adults over age 40 years affecting about 6 % of the U.S. population, this form of diabetes is strongly linked with obesity (more than 80 % of people with Type II diabetes are overweight), inactivity and a family history of diabetes. It is more common in African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians and Asian and Pacific Islander American. With the ageing of Americans, and the alarming increase in obesity in all ages and ethnic groups, the incidence of Type II diabetes has been rising at a fast rate. Type II diabetes is often part of a metabolic syndrome that includes obesity, high blood pressure, and high levels of blood lipids. People with Type II diabetes first develop insulin resistance, a disorder in which muscle, fat and liver cells do not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas produces more insulin, but, gradually, its capacity to secrete insulin falters and the timing of insulin secretion becomes abnormal. After diabetes develops, insulin production continues to decline. Symptoms include fatigue, nausea, and frequent urination or infections, unusual thirst, weight loss, blurred vision, and slow healing of wounds or sores. Some people have no symptoms at all. Researchers estimate that about one-third of people with Type-II diabetes do not know they have it. Many people with Type-II diabetes can control their blood glucose by following a careful diet and exercise programme, losing excess weight and taking oral medication. However, the longer a person has Type-II diabetes, the more likely he or she will need insulin injections, either alone or together with oral medications.
Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy. Though it usually disappears after delivery, the mother is at increased risk of getting Type II diabetes later in life.
Herbal preparations attracted attention of various scholars in the management of metabolic syndrome. Since time immemorial, medicinal plants have been used virtually by all culture as a source of medicine. The traditional herbs require scientific and medical evaluation. Our packages have been combined essentially in a fiber based lifestyle approach. The medicines in our package is purely herbal, known for its anti hyperglycemic and anti hyper lipidemic potential.
It restores pancreatic function and stimulates the circulatory system. It also regenerates the Beta cells in pancreas in controlling glycemia, dyslipidemia. It prevents the long term problems of diabetes mellitus e.g. Retinopathy, Nephropathy, Neuropathy and risk of strokes and heart attack.
It seems to be a safe medicine and effective oral treatment in the management of metabolic syndrome.
It can safely be combined with modern hypoglycemic drug. It helps in minimizing the dosages and in long run will minimize the dependency on modern drug without any ill effect.
Our package helps in protection and regeneration of Beta cells, which confer insulinotropic property. Possible effect on insulin resistance by reducing adiposity enhanced transport of blood glucose to peripheral tissue and increased peripheral glucose utilization, glucose uptake inhibitory or glycosidase inhibitory effects.
It has anti–oxidant effects by inhibiting oxidative stress. Biologically antioxidant directly acts as a free radial scavenger and prevents their conversion to toxic products. With increased glucose metabolism its beneficial hypotriglycedemic effect will help the sense of well being.
Diabetes is a silent killer and is the leading cause of death in the United States and especially prevalent among African Americans. Even in India, diabetes is a leading cause of death .Ignorance and even stress is playing a leading role in spreading of diabetes.
Allopathic practitioners prescribe Hypoglycemic drugs to reduce blood sugar. Though, blood sugar is reduced by consuming such drugs, no attention is given to the affected organ, where insulin is generated i.e. Pancreas. So such treatment causes dysfunction of the Pancreas gradually. Now, to relieve the symptoms, the dose of such medicines is increased causing complete damage to the pancreas.
On reaching critical stage, doctors suggest injection of Insulin. Thus, the patient becomes ‘drug’ or ‘Insulin’ dependent. It clearly means that the patient have to be insulin dependent throughout his life.
Ayurveda suggests medicines directly to cure dysfunction of the ‘Pancreas’. This herbal treatment provides strength to the ‘pancreas’, which after sometime starts functioning normally and the patient becomes ‘self dependent’.
Taking into consideration the worldwide danger of diabetes, “G KUMAR AROGYADHAM” has presented a SPECIAL TREATMENT PACKAGE, which has significantly proved to be a boon for diabetics, as it consists of herbal medicines, Yogasana and Pancha-karma. This package has considerably minimized the dose of insulin too and many patients are freed from the “claws” of insulin, ill effects of diabetes are also checked.
So, it will not be wrong to say that the World Health Organization should start research on the Indian pattern of treatment and encourage people to adopt Ayurvedic treatment to control diabetes and help diabetics to lead a normal and healthy life.
It is estimated that about 20 percent of the Indian population is suffering from diabetes. Modern medicine believes only in management of level of blood sugar. With the increasing use of insulin, pancreas becomes non-functional. Although initially no Ayurveda practitioner would recommend complete stoppage of modern medicine for a diabetic, but gradually one can get rid of the modern medicine and still manage required level of sugar in the body. Ayurvedic Diabetes Care Unit monitors the developments carefully. The greatest advantage is that the side-effects of modern medicines on the nervous system and kidney of a diabetic are avoided. Increasing restriction on diet are also gradually reduced under Ayurvedic treatment. This is accompanied with traditional Yoga exercises and helps the diabetic live a healthy life.
