Diabetes is a degenerative metabolic disorder affecting the way our bodies use digested food for growth and energy. This happens when the blood sugar level in a person goes abnoramlly high.

Most of the food we eat is broken down by the digestive juices into a simple sugar called glucose which is the main source of fuel for the body. After digestion, the glucose passes into our bloodstream where it is used by cells for growth and energy. Insulin helps glucose to get into the cells (Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, a gland behind the stomach.)

In people with Diabetes, however, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the body cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. As a result, glucose builds up in the blood, overflows in the urine and passes out of the body. Thus, the body loses its energy source even though the blood contains large amounts of glucose.

Homeopathy sees diabetes as an imbalance that results in ineffective utilization of the insulin that it produces, or to produce sufficient insulin for its needs.

The metabolic condition of a diabetic patient requires both therapeutic and nutritional measures . Along with the patient's strict compliance to a proper diet, homeopathy can regulate sugar metabolism while helping to resolve metabolic disturbances that lead to diabetes.

Homeopathy also helps stimulate the body's self-healing powers to prevent health conditions related to the illness, like glaucoma, hardening of the liver, hypertension, depression, kidney failure, rheumatic processes, etc.
