NATUROPATHY TREATMENTS OF DIABETES

Obesity treatment in Naturopathy is done by a proper mix of scientific massages, steam and sauna, enema, mud therapy, hip bath, detox diets, yoga and pranayam.

DIABETES

Diabetes is a disorder that strikes the metabolism of the body. People affected with diabetes have large amounts of sugar in their blood level. The food that we eat is broken down into glucose for growth and energy. The excess glucose present in the body, after digestion, is used by the cells for development. However, the body requires the presence of insulin hormone to move glucose, from blood, into the cells. People affected with diabetes have little or no insulin production in their body. The glucose that builds up in the blood passes out of the body in the form of urine. Thus, the body loses its main source of fuel even though it contains large amounts of glucose. This condition is termed as diabetes.
The normal sugar content should be 80 -120 mg per 100 ml of blood. When it is above this level, it needs to be controlled. Diabetes causes hunger, weight loss, thirst, urination, dehydration. In severe cases, heart disease, hearing and vision problems are also caused.
