Diabetes is a condition where the sugar level of the blood is too high. The two main types of diabetes are Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. When the body fails to make enough insulin to break down the glucose in the blood cells, one is said to have been diagnosed with diabetes. It is often genetic, but mostly occurs due to an unhealthy lifestyle. It is very difficult to find a proper solution to this problem.
Ayurveda, however, is the natural medicine available in the very heart of Mother Nature in various herbs, flowers, leaves, etc. The best part about this treatment is that it can be easily done in home, thus saving medical bills. Western medicine fraternities have started giving extreme importance to Ayurveda treatments as they give effective remedies to various ‘incurable diseases’.
Let’s look at some of the effective ways to treat diabetes using Ayurveda in home.
