Conclusion

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!

  • A very good description of DM . This kind of information is useful for both the patients and health care professionals. God bless you

  • Dear Dr.Kulkarni,
    You are one of the few who truly present Homeopathy scientifically.There’s nothing mystical about Homeopathy and it truly is an rational art of medicine.
    Thank you once again for a great article.

  • This article is excellent.Analysis of diabetis is is simply great.I hope more and more practitioners follow this analysis to treat this common disease.

  • Thank you Dr Kulkarni.Your article on DM is indeed worth reading repeatedly for day to day practice.

  • It is a very in depth article given by you and has given me new insites into treatment of diabetes. Keep up the good work and Homeopathy will become popular.

  • Dear Dr A kulakarni,
    presentation is very good. Homoeopathy field is very vast, there is no end for exploring, end in itself . Homoeopaths need to develop combativeness to control menace of Diabetes in world today which is wide spread. it is the high time that Homoeopaths should raise above to proove homeopathy will work, not placebo effect, it is benign, no adverse effects, cost effective and can save human life. it is possible only when homoeopath’s explore all possible methods without limiting the knowledge to a paricular principle. one should never close our mind to a particular idea only, we should be open our mind to all new Ideas. oneself experiencing is much more authentic proof than theorotical puddings. ‘ sky is the limit ‘.

    There are many more remedies to add the list – gymnema s, syzigum z, NS, Abroma , curare, ARS brom, chionanthus, codeinum, , iris – many more.

    Thanks again for the highlights

  • Hi! this is the first time I have read such a detailed and comprehensive article about diabetes and its management. One that also reflects my own beliefs on the subject. Just one more aspect could have been added, viz, the dietary management.
    Thanx a lot.

  • Sorry to belated comments DM by Dr. Ajit Kulkarni:
    1. Very elaborated Presentation on DM with a alarming data of DM patient in coming year.
    2. Undoubtedly artificial sweetener is playing a vital role to invite DM and upto extent to Carcinocin. Presentation by Dr. Manu Kothari is very significant. Next author has stressed serious side effect of Insulin intake as well as Zinc over dose
    3. Author has very innocently and honestly accepted less experience to deal with Factor-3 type of DM. How many % doctor do accept this ??
    4. Research revelation of oral drug ‘Avandia’ and its impact on human heart must be taken care as author has stressed through this essay.
    5. You have stressed upon ‘Drug miasm’ along with other ‘miasm’. Dr R. P Patel uses ‘tautopathic’ medicine very often as and when cases required.
    6. After going through all points mentioned in 1- 6 factor, it has become reportorial value to treat all type of DM.
    7. Enlisted Therapeutic Index of Remedies and steps to deal with the DM cases and ‘ Radar’ presentation has become of much importance
    8. Author has very significantly stressed upon ‘IMP’ factor while treating the DM as well as ‘Acidosis’ and its impact .
    9. Doctor as well as author has thrown light with profound and deep insight into ‘Sugar ,‘Love’ & DM. Very impressive para. We find a religious touch in this para and energy of this essay & this valuable presentation cetres round in this para . Aesthetic beauty lies here. What a similarity and coincidence in Love & sugar & vice versa !
    10. Analysis of medicine from all Kingdoms and its reportorial value is another feather of this presentation.
    11. Various references taken from the gems after a ‘ Saundra Manthan’ is a very herculean task and author has played a very vital role to mention emphatically.
    12. Overall, this presentation on DM has become a boon to all novice and classical practitioner who really wish to treat a Man rather than a disease.
    13. Author has covered all the issue relating to DM & affecting parts like Neuropathy, Ratinopathy Nephropathy, and impotency.
    14. Congratulation to Hpathy team who is serving globally and canvassing in favour of Homoeopathy. Please keep on asking such type of presentation.
    With regards,
    S.N.Ojha
