Glucose is the main source of energy for the body and fuel for the brain. In a healthy individual, several hormones, including insulin, regulate blood glucose levels, allowing it to be used as fuel.
Eating food naturally increases blood sugar. The excess sugar is converted to glycogen and stored by the body. As and when needed, the glycogen is broken down into glucose and used for energy. When the body fails to carry out this process efficiently, the excess sugar remains in the blood and the person is said to be suffering from diabetes.
In classical Ayurveda text, Charaksamhitha under Premeha chikilsa sixth slokas state that that there are 20 types of prameha (diabetes). Of these, ten types are caused by kapha disorder and can be cured. Another six types are caused by pitta dosha and can be managed. The last four types are caused by vatha and cannot be cured.
In prameha patients (diabetics), the body either does not make enough insulin (Type 1), or is unable to use it efficiently and effectively (Type 2).
While modern medicine resorts to testing blood to determine sugar levels in the body it must be noted that blood drawn from different extremities of the body at the same time will show entirely different blood sugar values.
Ayurveda advises testing for sugar in the urine to gauge the body’s sugar levels. The treatment and management of prameha (diabetes) is based on urine parameters.
Allopathic or Western system of medicine sees the pancreases as the root cause of diabetes. It focuses on this one organ and the treatment is centred on supplying the body with insulin supplements. But, lack of insulin or weak insulin is not the root cause!
It is necessary to understand that insulin IS NOT the only hormone responsible for blood sugar regulation.
The pancreas secretes the hormone Amylin along with insulin to maintain the body’s blood sugar levels. Another hormone Leptin, which is stored in body fat, also helps regulate insulin. Stress hormone like cortisol affects insulin production and absorption in the body. Even Melatonin, the sleep hormone, impacts insulin production.
Further, the body’s beta cells must be maintained in healthy numbers for the body to make enough insulin. Even anti-insulin hormones like glucagon facilitate the release of blood sugar into the blood when levels drop too low.
It is the perfect chemistry and balance between all these hormones that keeps blood sugar at healthy levels. The healthy body not only manages insulin production but also ensures that all the other hormones are secreted in the right amount and at right time to control blood sugar.
If the hormone balance is such a complex issue, how can insulin supplementation alone cure a diabetic?
This is the reason why prameha (diabetes) continues to progress and worsen the patient’s health despite regular insulin injections and multiple medications. Anti-diabetic agents tend to dry out the body of glucose in an effort to reach effective sugar levels, resulting in reduced nourishment to the pancreas, liver and kidneys. This manifests as weight loss, loss of skin texture, loss of body hair etc.
Since the root cause is not addressed, the body starts to degenerate resulting in neuropathy, nephropathy, atherosclerosis, vascular complications, diabetic ulcers, dry skin and retinopathy. This degeneration is a result of Hyperinsulinemia, which is a condition caused by the insulin- supplements and insulin injections prescribed by modern medicine. Hyperinsulinemia leads to inflammation in all internal organs and it also affects the brain. In Ayurveda, this state is known as Oja Nasha.
We look at Diabetes as a Degenerative. Unlike the modern medicine which forces the pancreas to produce more insulin, our medicine works on the liver to keep the body to have Samaghni.
Wrong diet – Prameha (diabetes) can be described as carbohydrate toxicity or intolerance to carbohydrates. This can happen when the body is fed simple carbs alone, all the time. The body pumps insulin to digest the carbohydrates making one feel hungry very soon after a meal. The hunger pangs leads to overeating, and often overconsumption of carbohydrates.
Obesity – Excess fat is also a risk factor. The condition may be due to wrong diet, excess calories, and lack of physical activity or hormone imbalance. Type 2 prameha (diabetes) is linked to a number of lifestyle factors, including obesity.
Sedentary lifestyle – Any lifestyle with little or no physical activity weakens the immune system. With the body’s stress management system inactivate, it goes into a state of inflammation.
Hereditary factors – Prameha (Type 1 diabetes) was thought to be entirely genetic. But, researchers now believe that something in the environment triggers the condition in some people, explaining why some members of a family become diabetic while others do not. Cold weather and certain viruses are also considered to be likely causes for the disease.
Hereditary factors – Prameha (Type 2 diabetes) is at least partially hereditary. People with a family history of the disorder are more likely to develop this type of diabetes.
Stress – Chronic stress can lead to insulin resistance, which in turn elevates blood sugar levels. With regular exercise, meditation or yoga, the levels of stress hormones in the body decreases, resulting in better blood sugar control.
Toxins – Whatever goes into the body, be it food or medicine, the body converts it into an absorbable form and what cannot be absorbed remains within as toxin till such time it gets eliminated. This produces Ama, and as per Ayurveda, is a cause for diseases like prameha (diabetes).
Instead of directly supplementing the body’s insulin or forcing the pancreas to produce more, Punarjani’s medicines work on the liver aiding the body to maintain and promote metabolism. This stimulates the brain to achieve hormonal balance in the body. This manner of treatment does not load the body with excess insulin and protects it from inflammation.
In Ayurveda, prameha is considered a disease originating from kapha. The progression of prameha (diabetes) can be halted even if one has been suffering from the disease for years.
Those on allopathic medicines or on insulin may be able to stop taking insulin injections and come off medications after undergoing Punarjani’s Agnirasa prameha (diabetes) reversal treatment.
AGNIRASA – 14 day residential treatment protocol for prameha (diabetes) reversal
Agnirasa is a treatment protocol developed by Dr. Shaji Raj to effectively treat and manage prameha (diabetes). The therapeutic regimen has shown remarkable results over the years. Many patients have managed to wean themselves of insulin injections and other medications while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
The comprehensive treatment protocol addresses secondary diseases like that of the heart, liver, kidneys and others organs that have been damaged either due to very high blood sugar levels or prolonged treatments and medications.
Those currently on insulin injections and allopathic medicines can undergo this treatment.
Patients who have a history of prameha (diabetes) are encouraged to bring the following test results with them.
Stage 1 of Agnirasa
Stage 2 of Agnirasa
Patients who undergo Agnirasa treatment successfully bring down their blood sugar levels. Those who continue the lifestyle and follow the diet recommendations have been able to stop taking all types of medications for prameha (diabetes).
The aim of Agnirasa treatment is to effectively manage prameha (diabetes) without causing internal organ inflammation. After undergoing this treatment, those suffering from prameha (diabetes) can go on to live a healthy and medicine-free life.
