Foreword
If you are one of those thousands of people who are looking for a natural, safe,
yet effective approach for a problem named 'DIABETES', welcome to the world of
AYURVEDA.
Vibrant, holistic and completely natural, Ayurveda is a system of holistic healing
more relevant in today's world than ever before.

Diabetes mellitus is a curious condition. It was identified as a disease entity


thousands of years ago (called madhumeha in Charaka Samhita) but even today
we cannot pinpoint its cause in a given patient. The cause may be diet, lack of
exercise, overweight, genes, stress, auto-immunity, a virus, or a combination,
which includes some of these factors and perhaps also something which we still
do not know. Diabetes has been treated successfully for more than 75 years but
it continues to maim and kill even today. The worst paradox is that although we
have a good idea of how diabetes may be prevented, the prevalence of the
disease is actually rising at an alarming rate.

Since lifestyle, especially in terms of diet and exercise, plays a major role in the
causation of the common types of diabetes, it stands to reason that appropriate
changes in life style could prevent diabetes. Further, the same measures can
also contribute to treatment. However, for prevention only life style changes are
enough, but for treatment drugs may also be necessary in addition.

Ayurvedic medicine does not need to be complicated, or difficult to incorporate


into your lifestyle. You can integrate it into your routine, as much or as little as
you are comfortable with, in the beginning. As you see results, you will want to
incorporate more and more of these ayurvedic tips for health and well-being into
your daily life.

Ayurveda doesn't promise instant results. Its approach is gentle and


comprehensive, working to correct the root cause of imbalances rather than the
surface symptoms. And it places the responsibility for your well being squarely
where it belongs, with you. But if you make that commitment to yourself, you'll be
richly rewarded, with ongoing benefits that add up gradually, day after day.

Although ayurveda has been around for 5,000 years, it's not outdated. Its very
practical, time-tested principles are perfect for today's seekers of prevention-
oriented self-care and cure. You will find this book rewarding in a deeper sense of
word

Diabetes (Prameha) Ayurvedic View
In this Ayurvedic Review, we would not only discuss the ayurvedic concept of this
dreadful ailment but we'll come up with preventive measures as well. After all,
Ayurveda not only cures but acts as a preventive shield as well.

It has been proved that if we keep our 'blood sugar' close to normal, there is a
chance to resist Diabetes. So here are the ayurvedic principles to guide you at
every step. Unlocking a healing world for you. The Multifold Ayurvedic system will
help you in charting out various ways including yoga postures for putting a rein
on your blood sugar. In short, this booklet packs a -- Preventive punch too ...

This disease complex was known to the oriental world by the name of "ASRAVA"
and "MUTRATISARA" in Vedic period. 3,000 years back.
The etiology, symptomatology, pathology, prognosis, and management principles
of diabetes are described in detail by the physician 'Charaka' in the Charaka
Samhita. This is the earliest major medical text of Ayurveda, and it reached its
present form around the first century A.D.

Another term for madhumeha is 'dhatupaka janya vikruti.' The first word,
“dhatupaka,” means metabolism. The entire term, roughly translated, means that
derangement in body tissues take place due to discrepancies in metabolism.

Etiology of Prameha and Madhumeha with their main characteristic features are
given in Su.Ni. 616. A.H.Ni.10/7, M.Ni. 33/6)

It is said as "Prakarshena Mehati Asminiti Prameha" which means excessive


urination.The word Prameha is derived from the root 'Miha Sechane' meaning
“watering”. In reference to disease of human beings, it may have a meaning of
passing urine, qualified by prefix 'Pra' meaning excess in both frequency and
quantity.

A study of the ancient literature indicates that Diabetes was fairly well known and
well conceived as an entity in ancient India.

The aetiology, pathogenesis and the principles of management, which are


described in Ayurvedic classics, resemble with the modern concepts almost in
toto.

Description of two types of Prameha from management point of view strikingly is


same.
" Krisha" (Lean Diabetic) and "Sthool" (Obese Diabetic) are classified in
Ayurveda on very similar grounds as Diabetics are classified in IDDM and
NIDDM respectively.
On the very similar pattern we find the classification as Sahja
prameh(Congenital) and Apathya nimitaj prameha (Due to overeating and wrong
eating habits).

“With simple lifestyle changes—including healthier diets and physical


activity like -Yoga, Yogasana , Pranayama etc.—you can decrease your risk
of developing diabetes by more than 70 %.”

What should I include in my diet ?


What should I avoid ?
Which exercise is good for me ? What Yoga & Yogasana will be beneficial ?
What simple changes in lifestyle I should do?

The ebook provides right answers to all such questions ……….

In short --

"Ayurvedic Cure of Diabetes" is the *New Encyclopedia* of self-help for


every diabetic patient.

Reviews
Atreya Smith -
"This book should help bridge Western and Ayurvedic
approaches to disease treatment in general and diabetes specifically. The
problems and causes of the disease are clearly discussed and explained.
A number of valuable treatment modules are discussed for both Type I & II
diabetes that are reasonable for self-treatment. This text is also advanced
enough for all medical professionals who wish to have an insight into the
Ayurvedic protocol of this debilitating disease. The work is a valuable
contribution to medical literature and will be help to all persons suffering
from this disorder." - Atreya Smith

"The book has discussed all the important aspects like history,
etiology. pathogenesis, types and there relation with the modern medicine
, various useful herbo-mineral formulations, home remedies and yoga
exercises. The last chapter of the book ' Diabetes complications and its
management' is really excellent and it describes how to prevent as well as
how to treat these complications.
I feel that every diabetic patient must read this ebook to keep him
healthy."
