Herbs for diabetes

There are many herbs which are very effective in curing diabetes and controlling associated problems. A lot of research has been done on all these herbs for their anti-diabetic action. No adverse effect has been reported so far with these herbs on long term use even. Nature has its own ways of treating disorders. When there is a will, there is a way. There is definitely a way but we are not willing and determined to follow it. Ayurveda is a 5000 year old science which is now being researched and the modern world uses the term “Scientific Ayurveda”. Few herbs with researches have been mentioned here!!

 

Gymnema sylvestre (Meshashringhi, Gurmar)

The Gymnema leaf or its concentrate is accounted to be the most commonly used herb for diabetic patients. Potential antidiabetic ingredients of Gymenma are gymnemic acids, gymnemosides & gurmarin (Porchezhian and Dobriyal 2003). Especially, the impact of Gymnema sylvestre extract on sugar metabolism has been proposed to be optional to enhancing glucose take-up in peripheral tissues and increasing insulin secretion and β cell number in the pancreas (Dey, Attele, and Yuan 2002). Means gymnema helps to revive and rejuvenate beta cells of pancreas which make insulin. Gymnema helps to mask the taste impression of sweet, diminish the take-up of glucose from the small intestine, enhance glucose digestion, diminish glycosylated haemoglobin(three months sugar levels- HbA1c), and enhance insulin secretion and dyslipidemia(lowers lipids levels as well) (Baskaran et al. 1990; Porchezhian and Dobriyal 2003). This herb does a lot of multitasking for your health. I think this is one of the best herbs for diabetes patients.

Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon, Dalchini)

Cinnamon is coming up as an excellent supplement for diabetes patient. The bio-active ingredients thought to be in charge of anti-diabetic impacts are polyphenol type-A.  In a Research Study done by T Crawford (2009) assessment of 109 diabetic patients who were already treated with eating routine and exercise, they were found to achieve normal glucose levels as indicated in their HbA1c report. Different researches additionally recommended advantageous impacts on glucose and lipids as well(Khan et al. 2003; Anderson 2008; Mang et al. 2006).  One of the best home remedy for diabetic patients.

  1. barbadensis (Aloe vera)

Aloe vera has likewise been utilized as a part of the restorative treatment of diabetes in India and the Arabian landmass. The gel, which is acquired from the inward segment of the leaves, may contain glucomannan, a water-dissolvable fiber that apparently has hypoglycemic and insulin-sensitizing activities (Vuksan et al. 1999, 2000).  Little scale clinical research trials proposed a change in fasting glucose levels with the extract of Aloevera(Bunyapraphatsara et al. 1996; Yongchaiyudha et al. 1996; Yeh et al. 2003).

Acacia arabica (Babool)

This is a common tree found in India and Asean countries which has been used more often to clean the teeth (used as datun in India). The plant extract is known for its antidiabetic properties, as it helps to discharge insulin. In research on mice its hypoglycemic activity has already being established.

Aegle marmelos (Bengal Quince, Bael, Bilva) It is sacred fruit which is widely used in India as fresh fruit juice or dried. In trials, its fruit and root both showed hypoglycemic  & anti-amoebic action. Its extract acts like insulin as it helps in the restoration of blood sugar and body weight to normal levels in mice and was therefore recommended as a potential hypoglycemic agent.

 

Allium cepa (Onion)

Dried onion powder has shown hypoglycemic action in diabetic rabbits. Allium cepa is likewise known to have cancer prevention agent and hypolipidaemic activity. At the point when diabetic patients were given single oral measurements of 50 g of onion juice, it fundamentally controlled post-prandial glucose levels.

Azadirachta indica (Neem)

Hydro-alcoholic concentrates of Neem indicated hypoglycemic action in streptozotocin treated rats. Besides having anti-diabetic action, this plant additionally has antibacterial, antimalarial, antifertility, hepatoprotective and cancer prevention agent impacts.

Caesalpinia bonducella (karanj)

Both the watery and ethanolic extracts demonstrated powerful hypoglycemic action in constant kind II diabetic models. The antihyperglycemic activity of the seed concentrates might be because of the obstructing of glucose retention.

Eugenia jambolana (Indian gooseberry, Jamun)

In India, decoction of portions of Eugenia jambolana is utilized as family solution for diabetes. This additionally frames a noteworthy constituent of numerous natural supplements for diabetes. Antihyperglycemic impact of watery and alcoholic concentrate and powder demonstrates decrease in blood glucose level. The concentrate of jamun mash demonstrated the hypoglycemic movement in streptozotocin initiated diabetic rats. The oral administration of the concentrate brought about increment in serum insulin levels in diabetic rats in a Research.

Momordica charantia (Bitter gourd, karela)

Momordica charantia is usually utilized as an antidiabetic and antihyperglycemic specialist in India and other Asian nations. Concentrates of bitter gourd seed, leaves and entire plant appeared to have hypoglycemic impact in different mice models.

Ocimum sanctum (Sacred basil)

It is commonly known as Tulsi. Since ages, this plant is known for its therapeutic properties. The watery concentrate of leaves of Ocimum sanctum demonstrated the noteworthy decrease in glucose level in both typical and alloxan initiated diabetic rats. Noteworthy reduction in fasting blood glucose, uric acid, total amino acid, total cholesterol, triglyceride and total lipid showed the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic impacts of tulsi in diabetic rats. This plant additionally demonstrated antistress, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antitumor, gastric antiulcer movement, cancer prevention agent, antimutagenic and immunostimulant exercises. This plant saves our body from multiple diseases & is also worshipped in Hindu religion.

Phyllanthus niruri (Bhuiawala)

It is normally known as Bhuiamla. Customarily, it is utilized as a part of diabetes therapeutics. Methanolic concentrate of Phyllanthus niruri was found to have strong cancer prevention properties. The concentrate likewise reduced the glucose levels in alloxanized diabetic rats in a research. The plant also demonstrates calming, antimutagenic, anticarcinogenic, antidiarrhoeal action.

Pterocarpus marsupium (Vijayasar)

Pterostilbene, a constituent, derived from wood of this plant caused hypoglycemia in puppies which demonstrated the hypoglycemic action of the extract of this herb vijaysar. Flavonoid derived from Pterocarpus marsupium has been proved to cause pancreatic beta cell regranulation. Marsupin, pterosupin and liquiritigenin derived from this plant demonstrated antihyperlipidemic activity as well.  This means generally a patient of diabetes type 2 is having both the issues together, so by supplementing one herb one can treat both diabetes and high cholesterol.

Tinospora cordifolia (Guduchi)

This herb is termed as Amrita in Ayurveda as it works like its name in various disorders. This is one of the most widely researched herb & has been evaluated for various diseases. Oral administration of the concentrate of Tinospora cordifolia brought about a huge decrease in blood and urine glucose levels and also decreased cholesterol in alloxan diabetic rats. The concentrate additionally caused reduction in body weight. That means it is very useful for obese persons and for those who are looking for sugar level reduction as well.

Withania coagulans  (Paneer dodi)

The fruit of Withania coagulans has been proven to possess antihyperglycemic properties and is widely used in the Indian system of medicine. Treatment of diabetic rats with different doses of water extract of W. coagulans resulted in significant reduction in Fasting Blood sugar levels,  Post Prandial sugar levels and HbA1c , also Serum insulin increased significantly compared with the untreated- diabetic rats.

How to cure Diabetes in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, Diabetes is compared with Prameha. Ayurveda has altogether different approach for the treatment for Diabetes. Lifestyle Management along with Medicine plays a very crucial role in controlling the disease and curing it. Ayurvedic treatment has ability to treat and reverse diabetes no matter how high the sugar level is. First we have to diagnose the type of diabetes. According to modern approach- there are two types –

  1. Type I- Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus.
  2. Type II – Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus.

How to cure Diabetes in Ayurveda:-

Also, we should diagnose that whether the patient is suffering from Insulin deficit or insulin resistance?

Doctors all over the world eye on Fasting blood Sugar levels or HbA1c, but we at Ayurveda24 focus on Serum Insulin levels of patient often ignored by Diabetologist and Allopathy Medicine doctors. Doctors at Ayurveda 24 check this parameter and accordingly plan the treatment protocol. The levels are generally found to be poor in 80% of diabetes patients as they are suffering from Insulin deficit. This means Beta cells of Pancreas are unable to manufacture Insulin despite of the fact that patient is using the first and second line of Oral Hypoglycemic Agents like Metformin & glimepiride etc. With Ayurvedic Treatment for Diabetes, Insulin levels rise and Diabetic Levels come under control. Slowly and steadily when Diabetic levels are in control we can reduce Ayurvedic medicine and ultimately stop the medication completely because we have increased the Insulin levels in blood naturally.

Patients who already have good Insulin levels suffer from Insulin receptor defect. These patients need to adopt a strict lifestyle and diet to control Diabetes. Younger obese patients who have a sedentary lifestyle fall in this category.

There are a lot of cases of Type 1 Diabetes patients who are taking Insulin. They are also sometimes suffering from the same defect, which can be identified by Serum Insulin test. Type 1 patients generally are not able to secrete enough amount of Insulin which can metabolize the food.

Alternative Medicine and Ayurveda is gaining importance worldwide due to its role in the treatment of diseases and also maintaining overall health. Patients have experienced ill effects of having all the Allopathic medicine for diabetes control. More and more diabetic patients are now incorporating alternative methods in their daily routine like intake of Karela juice & other anti-Diabetic agents like Jamun Juice etc. But these are just mediums to manage the sugar levels. Diabetes can easily be reversed if the patient is able to understand few things. First, the most important thing is diet & obviously causative factor of the disease. Of all the causative factors identified, one which is most common and basic is sedentary lifestyle and obesity. Second one is immunity. Nowadays in Successful & Stressful India, people are more into perfectionism and idealism which increases stress and leads to many diseases, one of which is Diabetes. Prolonged stress can damage one’s immunity & can also lead to immune system disorders. More and more people in urban cities are suffering from thyroid related disorders these days.

One particular treatment or medicine can’t be followed blindly for all kinds of Diabetic people. There are four steps in treating Diabetes.

  1. Identify root cause of disease.
  2. Nothing works alone, we have to give wholesome treatment.
  3. First Ayurvedic Medicine is given as an adjuvant, then slowly and steadily Allopathic medicine is tapered off.
  4. Maximum one year treatment in 90 % of cases.

 

Long term use doesn’t cause any complications or side effects. Diabetes Herbal treatment is adopted nowadays by many people worldwide.  There are a lot of herbs which help to control and eliminate diabetes. We have treated a lot of cases with our diabetes herbal medicine and supplements. Few case studies have been discussed here.

Case studies- Testimonies

 

Amit Kumar, Naya gaon(Punjab) working as a software professional in IT park. I am suffering from diabetes since five years. I lost around 10 kgs in last 2 years. I am 68 kgs now & look underweight as my height is 5’9”. Earlier my sugar levels used to be around 120-130 but now they crossed 200mg/dl. My doctor increased my dosage of allopathic drugs but I was not willing to increase as I was fed up with all medication. I then met Dr. Aggarwal who advised me to go for Serum Insulin test. It was found to be 9.2 mg/dl. Dr. Aggarwal explained me what this test is and how it is significant in my disease. And, Accordingly started my treatment. Soon I experienced some change in my body. Earlier I used to feel week and lethargic and my leg muscle used to pain a lot but after starting Dr. Aggarwal’s treatment for diabetes my energy level has increased. My diabetes levels reduced to 150 mg/dl & insulin levels increased to 21 mg/dl after four weeks of treatment that too without Allopathic medicine which was quite encouraging. I continued their treatment & now after three months of treatment I am completely free of any medicine and my Insulin levels are nearly 49 mg/dl.  Thanks to Dr. Aggarwal for reversing my diabetes.

Devinder Kaur-I am Diabetic patient since 30 years. My eyes got affected with the same. My sugar level was near 350 mg/dl and creatinine levels also started rising. My family doctor suggested me to start with insulin. Now,  I wanted to try some alternative medicines to treat my diabetes. My daughter searched online and read about Dr. Aggarwal. We went for a consultation first as we wanted to meet him personally. To be honest we were not sure that Ayurveda can work on such high sugar levels. Dr. Aggarwal went through our reports and asked about Serum Insulin. We were not aware of that. So he suggested to go for that test. My Serum Insulin came to be 8.23 mg/dl. I started with the treatment as advised by Dr. Aggarwal and within 10 days my sugar levels started coming under control. My Serum Insulin levels after a week were 17.87 mg/dl. I am feeling a lot of relief after 5 months now and my Insulin levels are 35.8 mg/dl and HbA1c have decreased to 6.1 & I am not taking any Allopathic medicine now.

Kewal Krishan- I am advocate in Punjab and Haryana High Court. I am suffering from Diabetes since 10 years. I tried different Ayurvedic, Homeopathic and alternative medications till date but my blood sugar levels never came to normal. I was taking so many medications, 4 Allopathic medications for Diabetes and 2 for Heart. I was very week and used to get vertigos (chakkar) but my sugar levels start coming to normal. I came in contact with Dr. Aggarwal through a reference. He then tested my Serum Insulin levels which came to be 1.14 mg/dl. I was a bit sceptical for the treatment as I have already took many medications but was suffering with other associated issues. But after speaking to Dr. Aggarwal I gained some confidence and started with Ayurvedic treatment and suddenly I felt some new energy levels in my body within a week of treatment. After three and half months of treatment my sugar levels are normal & my Allopathy treatment stopped. My blood sugar levels range between 99-120 mg/dl and HbA1c is 5.9. Now, it’s been 5 months & I am continuing with his treatment & expect to reverse Diabetes completely. Thanks to Dr. Aggarwal to treat me and rebuild my trust in Alternative Medicine.
