Abstract

Diabetes is a severe metabolic disorder. From a global perspective, it is becoming a growing problem due to the ever-increasing numbers of patients. The WHO estimates the number of people with diabetes around 347 million people with countries such as China, the United States, and India as the countries with the highest number of patients.1 Ayurveda treats diabetes with a person-specific combination of cleansing cures, dietary advice, herbs and mental guidance. In this report we study the efficacy of person-specific combination of therapy combined with the herbal supplement Mohana Choorna consisting of 20 different herbs in a case study from a patient with impaired glucose tolerance.
Materials and methods: Supply of the herbal formula Mohana Choorna consisting of 21 herbs that act on different layers of the body, dietary advices and lifestyle based on the patients dosha, mental guidance during the first 6weeks of the protocol.
Results: After four weeks of strictly following the Ayurveda protocol the HbA1c levels decreased profoundly. Two years after the start of the Ayurveda protocol T2D is reversed. Five years after this is still the case.
Conclusion: Our findings suggest that Ayurveda treatment with a person-specific combination of cleansing cure, dietary advice, Mohana choorna and mental guidance can reverse T2D.
