Diabetic Care or Cure? Often the most controversial subject whirling around unanswered in the Medical field. Let us discuss what is Diabetes and how Homoeopathy can shed  light on it so that we get to know later  that whether care or cure, which is the best term to suffix Diabetes.



It is not a disease of Pancreas alone rather it is a syndrome characterized by persistent increase of glucose in blood. If untreated can later on lead to  acute and chronic complications affecting whole body and mind. Diabetes classified into  Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes and others such as 1.5 Diabetes.  Disturbance in normal balance in the  factors regulating Carbohydrate mechanism can lead to Diabetes. In majority of cases it is the inability to store sugar as glycogen hence it increases and absorbed in renal tubules in kidney. After explaining theories over theories now it says, diabetes is not due to insufficient amount of Insulin secreted by Islets of Langerhans but it is the antagonistic action of Pancreas, Pituitary, Thyroid and Adrenal glands together that leads to Diabetic syndrome. An anti Insulin factor secretion is also to be considered. Hence we should have a system of medicine  which acts on whole organism so that it creates a homo stasis within the body. Homeopathy is a  holistic system where it has action on the whole organism rather than action only on specific single organ.

SYMPTOMS: Increased thirst, hunger, urination. Others symptoms are fatigue, numbness and burning sensation, weight loss, slow healing wounds, dark skin patches, blurred vision according to the stage of disease.


It’s a derangement of sugar “HOMEOSTASIS” and also It’s an “INBORN ERROR” of sugar metabolism. The enzymatic defect that limit functional capacity of Insulin and one or more missed link in chain of complex mechanism, which convert sugar into energy and heat.

Foremost cause is ‘Hereditary’ then stress, ethnic differences, Indiscretions in diet, Pregnancy, Obesity, Pancreatic, Extra Pancreatic, Pituitary, Adrenal, Dopamine, GIT, Other medication induced etc. Let us discuss the cause which is important for patient as well as for Homoeopathic treatment.

  1. A) Hereditary (INBORN ERROR): 

It’s one of the  basic cause of Diabetes and it is a genetic defect with presence or absence of accessory factors such as age, various races and ethnic groups, error in diet, stress etc. The Non-Diabetics may act  as a carrier to the next generation; as we all know grandparent’s gene which is recessive in their children gets expressed in their grand children (Atavism). In every cell there is a specific gene for every specific enzyme. When gene is altered its corresponding enzyme get altered. Hormones such as Insulin and glucagon increases or decreases with altered enzymatic reaction ie; a genetically defective gene causes an enzymatic  malfunction which may lead to Diabetes.

Role of Homoeopathy :

Let’s read the above passage in reverse

altered Hormones <- altered Enzyme <- altered “Gene”.

Hence the basic problem is in the gene. Let’s discuss how a gene gets altered? There should be some strong powerful internal or external agents to cause a change in the gene. Hereditary disease means, there should be a single person who started the chain to begin with. For eg:  the then considered first couple ‘Adam and Hawwa’ should have started the chain. It is illogical; because if so, the entire descendants should get affected by that. So some other cause has changed the genetic pattern at some stage. Our genetic code gets fixed during time of conception and it gets influenced either; before (spermatogenesis period),during and after conception (gestational period).

These stages can gets influenced

(a) Externally by exposing to powerful physical noxious agents Eg: spraying of Endosulphan causing genetic defects.

(b) Internally by mental stress. Eg: Here in the case of Diabetes, as it is more of a life style disease, a strong mental stress plays a major role – stress induced Diabetes.

Gene selection is a random selection process so if creating a positive ambiance ie; if you are able to live a stress free life your descendants will remain healthy. In regard with you, even though if you have a genetic pre-disposition to get a familial disease, diseases wont get affected if you can cope up with your stress more effectively. Homoeopathy take cares you at any stage of life. Hence Diabetes can be cared or cured in this generation or even can prevent passing on the disease to the next generation with suitable Homoeopathic medicine.Various races and ethnic groups demonstrates differences in glucose metabolism, again supports importance of hereditary factor. These aspect of Diabetes are especially important for a multi-ethnic country such as India. “Heredity is the gun and environment is the trigger”.

  1. B) Stress

Stress result in derangement of HOMEOSTASIS. Recurrent and persistent physical and mental stress in family and at work place slowly leads to pancreatic exhaustion; as above condition causes a sharp rise (spike) in blood glucose level causing demanding situation on pancreas which results in pancreatic exhaustion in due course of time. The same happens in a person who has excessive consumption of carbohydrate or indiscriminate consumption of sugar and glucose to get instant energy.  Stress can be managed successfully and can create homeostasis by ourselves within our body, as nature has given us inborn power to heal ourselves. The stress which is not controlled properly can lead to mental and physical diseases including diabetes which require medical attention, hence a system which gives importance to  the cause can give you a better results that is Homoeopathy.

Homoeopathic therapeutics in Diabetes and it’s prognosis:

Diabetes can be dealt beautifully through Homoeopathy by adopting different strategies according to the cause and particular symptoms experienced by the patient. Prognosis depends on so many factors like age of the patient,duration of the illness, concurrent diseases and its medication, past history of the patient and his family, present state of health, his sensitivity, recent or past physical or  mental stress and strain in the family and at his workplace. If more causes present, diabetes will be intensified so it become a complex disease which  will be difficult to treat, however can be cared well. Homoeopathy has lot of  medicines for Diabetic patients selected purely on totality of symptoms particular to the individual. Hence whether your condition can be suffixed with cared or cured depends on you and your Homoeopathic Doctor after thorough assessment only. Hence don’t let hope to go once you get diagnosed that you have diabetes. In a 5 and half year Indian Medical education system, Homeopathy is the only system where  psychology is a subject in the first year curriculum, as psychological approach in  the patient care goes a long way in mitigating many diseases including Diabetic syndrome. And also Diet and Exercise is an inseparable part in the treatment. Each Homoeopathic medicine is proved on Healthy human beings so that it is devoid of side effects and is safe to use as it is extracted from nature. Proper selection and administration of constitutional Homeopathic medicine after case taking, analysis and repretorisation is very effective in Diabetes.

In a nutshell, we can say Diabetes is a slow progressive disease where you don’t have to  panic to do any emergency treatment,  when initially get diagnosed. A Homoeopathic doctor can better treat diabetes if you are going as fresh case rather than who is already under other mode of medication. Less the duration and multi system involvement more the chance of cure, and the condition which cannot be cured can be endured with hope of minimizing complications and symptomatic relief. Be close with nature and create homeostasis within the body through Homeopathy !
