Diabetic neuropathy is a kind of a nerve damage which happens if one is already suffering from diabetes. Actually, this disease occurs because of high blood sugar which affects your nerve fibers all across the body. Generally, it hurts your legs and feet. The symptoms can vary from person to person. Some may not find that much pain while others may experience an immense pain.
Neuropathy, popularly called us peripheral neuropathy, is a condition where the nerves that are responsible for carrying information from spinal cord to brain is damaged. It is always good to consult your Ayurvedic doctor to treat neuropathy. The affected patients are treated naturally with Bhumyamalaki Chura 3g on a dosage of two times per day.
Diabetic neuropathy is a relatively early and common complication affecting approximately 30% of diabetic patients. According to Ayurvedic principles, there is an involvement of Vata and Pitta Dosha in diabetic neuropathy. Bhumyamalaki (Phyllanthus niruri) is a plant which shows possibility to pacify these two Dosas. Another plant Atibala (Abutilon indicum) has also Vata pacifying qualities. Present study has been carried out to study the effects of Bhumyamalaki and Atibala on 33 patients of diabetic neuropathy. All the patients have been given Bhumyamalaki Churna 3 g twice a day and decoction of 10 g of Atibala-mula twice a day for 30 days.
In this process, whatever we give to the patients in the large doses, is being given in smaller doses. The same medicaments are given to the patients when they are hungry. The whole crux is to pacify the doshas instead of expelling them.
In this process, Sneha (Medicated Ghee or Oil) is being used in higher dose. This is done in order to saturate Sneha in the body. Here, everyday, the dosage is increased until all the parts and cells of the body get saturated. This procedure is being done in the early morning on an empty stomach. When the whole body gets saturated with Sneha then Swedana is being performed in which whole body steaming is being done.
