By Manav Sodhi +2 more

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition caused by the imbalance of insulin in our bodies. It affects the production of energy from the food we eat. Although positive life changes are necessary for the body’s overall health, people with diabetes need medical help to curb the issue. Most patients tend to reach out to Allopathic treatment. However, due to the adverse side effects of conventional medicines, many show interest in homoeopathy for diabetics and other diseases.

This article will help you find out about how homoeopathy treatment for diabetics works? 

What is Homeopathy, and how does it work?

Homeopathy uses a holistic approach to treat a patient. It targets the whole body instead of the malfunctioning body part. The homeopathic practitioners ask questions based on the patients’ diet, lifestyle, other possible symptoms, history of diseases in the family, the environment, work, stress levels, basic behaviour, habits, and more. They then form a detailed profile of the patient based on the answers and then prescribe the treatment.

No two patients ever get the same treatment, and prescriptions are tailored according to the needs of each patient. Homoeopathic treatment, thus, is a time-consuming process, and the patient might need multiple sessions to give their detailed profile to the practitioner.

Homeopathy for Diabetics

Homeopathic medicines are extracted from plants, minerals, or animals. The medicine is diluted to the level that only trace amounts of the original substance are left. Since only a trace amount is present in the actual dosage, homeopathic medicines pose little to no side effects. 

Homeopathic doctors prescribe the medicine in various forms, namely

  • Sugar pellets
  • Ointments
  • Creams
  • Oil
  • Drops
  • Tablets

Homeopathy manages diabetes by treating the aberrations caused in patients’ bodies due to the imbalances in the life force.

  • Fatigue
  • Excessive urination, especially during the night
  • Dry mouth
  • Frequent hunger pangs
  • Weight loss in case of type 1, weight gain in type 2
  • Blurred vision
  • Ulcers

Ways to take Homeopathic Medicines for Diabetes

Patients may take Homeopathic treatment for diabetes besides conventional medications. A few points to keep in mind are:

  • Always wash your hands thoroughly before taking homoeopathic medicines.
  • Read the instructions on the medicines carefully.
  • Keep the medicines away from strong perfumes and smells like camphor, eucalyptus, etc.
