Homeopathy for Diabetes

remedies Jun 02, 2021

Diabetes is an increasingly more frequent disease as a result of our modern diet and hereditary influences. It is one of the most insidious diseases affecting man. It can be a quiet killer if not properly diagnosed and treated. Allopathic treatment is fairly easy and with the help of dietary changes can help modify the disease. But to remove the disease and its symptoms, good homeopathy must be applied to help inspire deeper healing along with lifestyle changes, including diet.

There are two main types of diabetes; diabetes insipidus, which is characterized by polyuria (increased secretion of urine without containing any sugar or glucose), and diabetes mellitus, which is characterized by polyuria with an increase in sugar in the urine, abnormal thirst, and an increased or depressed appetite with progressive debility.  If left untreated, diabetes affects all metabolic functions and creates a horrible picture of disease. Circulation can become impaired leading to eye problems and blindness, ulcers that do not heal, gangrene, neuropathy, cardiac symptoms, and ultimately coma and death. Diagnosis is easy with the proper blood tests.

Diabetes is the result of improper function of the pancreas. The pancreas' job is to produce Glucagon and Insulin. Insulin is a protein compound that regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. When the pancreas does not create enough insulin, then the blood sugar will rise. Rather than being metabolized, it is secreted through the urine with diabetes mellitus.

The two major contributing causes of diabetes are hereditary and lifestyle. Homeopathy offers the only help there is to remove the hereditary influences. Modern lifestyles with excessive consumption of carbohydrates, emotional stress, and lack of exercise contribute to diabetes. Proper blood sugar monitoring and dietary changes can control mild cases of diabetes. It requires the patient to take more responsibility for their life. If they do not, the chances of them healing the disease are very slim.

Always do good case-receiving methods and get the story of the person's life. Because stress plays such a significant role in our health, understanding how the person copes and what symptoms are accompanying the disease will help lead to the remedy. Only the best-prescribed medicines can help remove the disease.
