Ayurvedic and Herbal Treatment for Diabetes

Ayurveda is an ancient medical science, in fact the oldest of India. It is believed that ayurveda has the power to heal your body as well as soul. It is a science that has the ability to cure almost any illness with herbs and yogis. If followed properly and devotedly it can control and possibly treat chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, etc. We know that keeping diabetes in check is a challenge for the patients, their families as well as their respective physicians. After several years of futile combat with diabetes, several patients and their families have resorted to ayurveda for control and treatment of this debilitating chronic condition. These patients have greatly benefited from ayurvedic medicines and vouch for the difference it has made in their lives. Herbal medicines, yoga, panchakarma, and controlled diet have proven to be a successful “combination prescription” for the control and treatment of diabetes. Ayurveda often uses one or many of these approaches in combination for the control and treatment of diabetes. Let’s take a look at the commonly employed and practiced approaches:
