Alternative Therapies To Fight Diabetes

Try These Alternative Therapies To Fight Diabetes Better!

While there is no alternative to taking prescription medicines for controlling diabetes, years of research have gone behind to validate the role of adjunct forms of treatment for diabetes management. Numerous studies suggest that various adjunct therapies (such as Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Acupuncture) alongside the daily prescribed medicines are effective in managing diabetes better. Here are some of the common ones:


The science of Ayurveda manages diabetes through a combination of activities that include, exercise (Vyaayam), dietary regulation (Pathya), panchakarma (bio-purification) and medicines. It is best to consult an ayurveda consultant before taking any ayurvedic medicine for diabetes. Some household herbs and spices that you can include in your diet include:

Powdered Jamun seeds can be taken with water or buttermilk (chaach).

Methi (Fenugreek) seeds are taken with water 15-20 minutes before each meal. Methi has soluble fibers that slowdowns the digestion and absorption of glucose.

Bael Leaves are squeezed to prepare fresh juice that can be taken along with a pinch of black pepper.

Dalchini (Cinnamon) powdered form of which is taken with water, helps in improving sugar as well as cholesterol level.

Concentrated amla juice taken along with bitter ground juice, helps in releasing more insulin.

Bitter gourd (Karela) is recommended to be taken every morning.


-Defined as a complementary medicine, homeopathy majorly concentrates on improving the functioning of the pancreas to produce insulin.

-Homeopathy experts rely on the patient’s history and temperament to devise a constitutional medication.

-However, it is recommended to use the homeopathic medicines only if prescribed by the homeopath and that too alongside the usual course of medications suggested.

3 . YOGA

-Yoga focuses on mindful exercise where a person’s attention is on the body or breathing and eases away worrying or depressing thoughts from the mind.

-Restorative yoga involves yoga poses and healing through relaxation techniques with conscious breathing and power yoga has been found to benefit for losing weight (a risk factor for diabetics).


-This technique uses needles to treat chronic pain.

-It has been found to be beneficial in relieving pain in diabetics with complications such as neuropathy.


This technique uses relaxation techniques and stress reduction methodologies and helps one become aware of and deal with the body pain.

So, go ahead and add these forms of therapy to your daily regimen to fight the disease.

However, remember that these complementary forms of therapies are recommended to be utilized as a supplement to the primary/ first line treatment for diabetes and not as the sole treatment option.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy!
