What is Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus, the common form of diabetes, is caused by lack of insulin, a hormone manufactured by the pancreas gland. Insulin is responsible for the absorption of glucose into liver and fat cells and muscles which require it for energy, and if there is insufficient supply glucose levels in the blood rise. Diabetes is common among people with disturbed lifestyle like – those involved in lot of sedentary work lacking physical activity, obese, around 40 years age, suffering from constipation and fond of rich spicy food and lethargic.

In Type I (insulin-dependent or juvenile-onset) diabetes insulin levels may be very low (or totally absent), forcing the cells to obtain energy from fat instead, which may lead to diabetic coma \ and death. It usually first occurs in people under the age of 35 (most often between 10 and 16) and develops rapidly.

Type II (non-insulin dependent or maturity-onset) diabetes is normally found in people over 40, particularly those who are overweight. Onset is gradual and as insulin is not as lacking as in Type 1 it may go undiagnosed for some time. The symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst and the passing of large amounts of urine, weight loss, fatigue, hunger, weakness and apathy. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition and causes damage to the nerves, premature atheroma and therefore angina and arterial disease in the legs, hypertension, blindness and kidney failure.


Diabetes mellitus tends to run in families, although not all members who carry the gene will go on to develop the disease; the incidence of those who do is higher in Type II than in Type I.  Damage to the pancreas caused by a virus is thought to be the precipitating factor in Type I. Other aggravating factors of diabetes mellitus include:

  • Pregnancy.

  • Certain other illnesses, including hyperthyroidism, pancreatic diseases and thyro-toxicosis.

  • Treatment with corticosteroids may unmask a tendency to diabetes.


Orthodox treatment

Type II diabetes mellitus can often be controlled just by weight reduction, dietary restriction and oral medication, with insulin injections where these fail. Type I requires regular self injections of insulin, together with a diet calculated to avoid fluctuations in glucose levels. Patients need regular check-ups to monitor weight, blood sugar and blood pressure as well as an annual eye test.


Chinese Acupuncture

Acupuncture may dramatically reduce the amount of insulin required. Use of Byol magnets on the following points can reduce the level of blood sugar and control of diabetes:

Herbal Treatment

Chinese herbalist may offer herbal hormone tonics and herbal astringents. Diuretic herbs and herbs to regulate the blood condition may be required. In Ayurvedic medicine a practitioner may prescribe specific oral formulas to control the blood sugar level. Macrobiotic therapists suggest the standard macrobiotic diet, with particular emphasis on good-quality sweeteners in the form of barley or rice malt, raisins and seeds. Fluid restrictions may be necessary. The metamorphic technique will focus on a specific area of the foot: Yoga therapists may suggest gentle asanas, relaxation, pranayama and meditation. Cymatics may also be useful. Tai chi and polarity therapy may help to address imbalances causing the condition.


Dietary advice and applied nutrition may help; in particular, specific nutrients like magnesium and chromium are important in assisting glucose tolerance and can be taken as supplements. Herbal medication may be prescribed. All treatment is complementary to conventional treatment, which must not be neglected.

Diet & Nutrition

Recent research has shown that changing to a whole food vegan diet can enable some diabetics to come off insulin and hypoglycaemic drugs. Other factors involved in maturity-onset diabetes are nutritional deficiencies, particularly of zinc, chromium, magnesium and B vitamins. Diabetics seem to have a greatly increased requirement for vitamin C. When supplemented, insulin requirements may be reduced.

Homoeopathic treatment should be constitutional, and undertaken in addition to orthodox treatment. Apart from advice on diet and lifestyle, treatment may consist of the following specific remedies, which may be taken four times each day for up to two weeks.

Autogenic training

As long as there is some pancreatic function (in other words, the condition is controlled by oral medication) the response can be dramatic. Blood sugar level can be reduced and stabilized. Insulin control may show a slight improvement.
