Amongst the commonly prevalent diseases in the world right now is Diabetes, a health condition faced by millions across the world. WHO demonstrates that the number of adults living with diabetes has almost quadrupled since 1980. India had almost 3 Crore diabetic cases in the year 2000, which is estimated to double up by the year 2030. With the increase rate of diabetes around the world, we at Vedi Herbals advise all of you to revert to the ancient science of Ayurveda which presents the perfect tips and tricks for Diabetes Management.
1. TURMERIC TREATMENT
Increasing the intake of turmeric in the diet is said to improve the functioning of AGNI (digestive fire) inside our body and is extremely beneficial for diabetes management.
2. DRINK WATER IN COPPER VESSEL
Water stored in a copper vessel is known as ‘Tamra Jal’ and it helps in balancing the 3 fundamental doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) in our body. Starting this practice increases the vitality of body and prevents fluctuation of blood sugar levels.
3. CONSUMPTION OF METHI DANA
Diabetics should definitely have a stock of methi dana in their homes. You can consume methi dana sprouts or have it with water the first thing in morning.
4.THE BITTER, THE BETTER
Apart from refraining oneself from eating sweets, loading up on bitter elements like hemp seeds, bitter gourd (Karela), Amla and Aloe Vera are found effective in managing and controlling diabetes.
5. AVOID FATTY DAIRY PRODUCTS
Eating regimented meals that contain less fatty foods thrice a day is very important. Try and avoid dairy products and opt for skimmed milk and low-fat yoghurt. Ginger tea helps stimulate digestion, which is very beneficial in reducing the excess of Kapha dosha (water and earth related) in your body.
6. BE WISE WITH THE SPICE
There are many spices that have been acknowledged to show anti-diabetic properties. Asafoetida (Heeng), Turmeric (Haldi), Cinnamon (Dalchini), Mustard (Sarson) and Coriander (Dhaniya) have properties that help manage diabetes.
