Diabetes mellitus is the subject of a great many case management programs around the world, as it is a very prevalent disease with modifiable risk factors and severely disabling complications, potentially preventable with the aid of homeopathy. Diabetes is a constitutional condition and it requires constitutional treatment for its management. However, constitutional treatment doesn’t mean treating the patient, throughout her life with a single remedy! The homoeopathic system of medicine is based on principles of individualization and susceptible constitutions. Although this article focusses on polychrest remedies, other remedies have their usefulness also, provided they are indicated according to the Law of Similars.
In the larger perspective of management of diabetes, homeopathy has a definitive role to play. Its armamentarium is rich and the classical approach based on totality of symptoms, individualization and clinico-pathological and miasmatic co-relations will prove to be useful for the treatment of diabetic patients. In this paper many concepts are discussed and many research findings are presented along with some illustrative cases.
At the end, I must mention that change of life style; yoga, diet modification and exercise are equally significant in the management of diabetes. They are symbiotic to the holistic application of homeopathy.
Thank you, my readers, with a lot of sweets and love!
