Ayurvedic herbal medicines can be safely used as an additional therapy to the modern treatment of different types of cancer. Treatment is three-pronged:- (i) reducing the tumor size (ii) preventing or stopping the spread of tumor cells via the blood and lymph ducts and (iii) directly treating the affected tissues. This treatment also reduces the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
According to the basic principles of Ayurveda, the human body consists of seven different, distinct tissues:- Rasa, Rakta, Mansa, Meda, Asthi, Majja and Shukra. The tissues which are affected due to any specific type of cancer can be directly treated with Ayurvedic medicines, and this forms the third approach to cancer treatment.
This is, thus, a short overview of the Ayurvedic approach to cancer treatment. The main advantage is that the above mentioned principles of cancer treatment can be applied to any type or form of cancer, and treatment can be tailor-made as per the specific requirements of each individual patient. This treatment can definitely improve the overall outcome and survival rates in cancer.
Long-term complications of diabetes include diseases related to the eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart, brain, intestines, sexual organs, skin and feet. Ayurvedic medicines are very effective in preventing or significantly reducing symptoms related to these complications, and are useful in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Ayurvedic medicines used specially for this are: Tapyadi Loha, Kaishor Guggulu, Agni Tundi Rasa, Vish Tinduk Vati, Kanchnaar Guggulu, Trayodashang Guggulu, Ekanga Veer Rasa, Vaat Gajankush Rasa and Amalaki (Emblica officinalis).
Thus, Ayurvedic medicines are useful both for reducing blood sugar and for treating long-term complications. These medicines can be used independently or as additional therapy to modern medicines. Ayurvedic treatment can significantly reduce the morbidity (severity of disease) and mortality (death rate) associated with diabetes mellitus.
When you meet any Ayurvedician, checkout the certification and ask for the degree-registration number. An ayurvedic doctor must be registered with a local as well as national board of Ayurveda (The Department of AYUSH, Government of India). A typical ayurvedician is capable of checking the pulse (naadi-in ayurveda) and should be able to evaluate the doshas involved in disease. Once the root cause is detected, an Ayurvedician should have the knowledge of pacifying the disease (doshas) without causing any harm to other bodily systems. The use of herbs, therapies and different components in Ayurveda is very important as it is based on the condition and degree of disease and diseased.
Unlike modern medicines and treatments, Ayurveda does not have a common treatment for the same disease occurred in two different individuals. Ayurvedician should be able to distinguish different signs and symptoms and must think about patient's prakriti (natural characteristics) depending upon which, the treatment, diet and other regimen can be decided.
Apart from these herbal medicines, you should follow a proper diet for diabetes. It is very important to maintain a proper weight. Excessive intake of fats disturbs the normal function of the body. It blocks the circulation of blood and thus supplies fewer amounts of nutrients to different parts of the body. It affects the production of insulin, which helps in converting sugar into glucose. Once the body does not generate required amount of insulin, sugar directly enters the blood stream. The presence of sugar in the blood stream spikes the blood pressure. This all create complicated conditions and thus provoking several other health issues.
