Diabetes - Homeopathy Treatment
Homeopathic medicines are immunity-boosters (balance your immune system, fight infections, inflammations, viruses and bacteria), and they increase the body's resistance power and help in better absorption of insulin. The system of homeopathy is based on the mental personality of an individual. Therefore, it becomes the most effective treatment for stress-related diabetes. It lowers the risk factor of diabetic complications like diabetic neuropathy, nephropathy and retinopathy.
Homeopathic treatment, along with the intake of hypoglycaemic drugs and insulin, can prevent the progression and complications of diabetes. Homeopathic medicines administered on time help maintain insulin levels and taking conventional anti-diabetic drugs at the minimum dosage possible could allow one to gradually taper the dose and also discontinue them later.
A combination therapy of homeopathic and allopathic medication showed 50% extra improvement in the control of diabetes. In one study in Athens, a group of patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 was treated with a conventional oral anti-diabetic drug and placebo (Group 1). Another group was given the same oral anti-diabetic drug and homeopathy (Group 2). The duration was nine months of parallel treatment. Group 1 showed 47% improvement, while Group 2, on conventional medication and homeopathy, showed 97% improvement.
Certified diabetes specialists on Dr Batra’s™ panel work closely with homeopathic doctors to monitor and manage diabetes patients effectively. Blood sugar (fasting and post-lunch) and glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C) levels are regularly monitored. Patients are also closely tracked for any diabetes complications that may be setting in. Homeopathic medicines can also help maintain insulin levels and they, as already cited, complement conventional medicine, bringing about better and long-lasting treatment outcomes.
The following complications may arise out of diabetes:
- Non-healing wounds
- Carbuncles (a severe abscess or multiple boil in the skin)
- Loss of sensation—tingling and numbness
- Cellulitis— an inflammation of body tissue (especially that below the skin)
- Gangrene (localised death and decomposition of body tissue)
- Candidiasis (infection with candida, especially causing oral or vaginal thrush)
- Decreased sexual drive/ libido
- Renal failure (kidney failure)
