Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda) is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than 3,000 years ago and remains one of the country’s traditional health care systems. Its concepts about health and disease promote the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other unique health practices. India’s government and other institutes throughout the world support clinical and laboratory research on Ayurvedic medicine, within the context of the Eastern belief system. But Ayurvedic medicine isn’t widely studied as part of conventional (Western) medicine.

The earliest classical Sanskrit works on Ayurveda describe medical science as being divided into eight components (Skt. aṅga). This characterization of the physicians' art as the teaching found in "the medicine that has eight components" (Skt. cikitsāyām aṣṭāṅgāyāṃचिकित्सायामष्टाङ्गायाम्) is first found in the Sanskrit epic, the Mahābhārata

Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, Is a holistic system of treatment that originated in the late Eighteenth century. The name homeopathy is derived from two Greek words that mean “like disease.” The system is based on the idea that substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in very dilute quantities to sick people who exhibit those same symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are believed to stimulate the body’s own healing process. Homeopathy is generally safe and good treatment to explore for acute and chronic illnesses. Homeopathic remedies are effective in treating diabetes.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine have been used to treat diabetes for over 2000 years. Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers and increases blood flow.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has formed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness. The clinical diagnosis and treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine are mainly based on the yin-yang and five elements theories. These theories apply the phenomena and laws of nature to the study of the physiological activities and pathological changes of the human body and its interrelationships. The typical TCM therapies include acupuncture, herbal medicine, and qigong exercises. Today Chinese medicine continues to develop in new and exciting ways and is utilized by millions of people around the world. It is truly a world class system of medicine.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIHExternal NIH Link), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), defines complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as a "group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered to be part of conventional medicine." Complementary medicine is used with conventional medicine, whereas alternative medicine is used instead of conventional medicine. Some people with diabetes use CAM therapies to treat diabetes. Although some of these therapies may be effective, others can be ineffective or even harmful. The category encompasses a variety of disciplines that include everything from diet and exercise to mental conditioning and lifestyle changes. herbal supplements can help to control diabetes or its complication.

Genetics play a strong role in the chances of developing both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Other factors include environment and lifestyle. The risk of developing diabetes is affected by whether your parents or siblings have diabetes. The causes of type 1 diabetes are unknown, although several risk factors have been identified. The risk of developing type 1 diabetes is increased by certain variants and genes. Type 1 diabetes is generally considered to be an autoimmune disorder. In people with type 1 diabetes the immune system damages the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Several factors have to come together for a person to develop type 2 diabetes. Elements like nutrition and exercise are extremely important. However, type 2 diabetes also has a strong hereditary component. several gene mutations have been associated with type 2 diabetes risk include, insulin secretion and glucose production, glucose transporter 2 (GLUT2), which helps move glucose into the pancreas.

With the growing awareness and information regarding preventive measures for combating fatal disease like diabetes, consumers are opting for proper food along with medicines. One can improve the health in a big way by making small changes to the diet, while still enjoying the favorite foods and taking pleasure from the meals. A diabetes diet is simply a healthy eating plan that is high in nutrients, low in fat, and moderate in calories. Manufacturers are now keen towards Diabetes Nutrition on introducing new low calorie food products with sugar substitutes and less oil, in view of the increasing consumer interest toward healthy eating and help prevent diabetes and its concomitant risk factors.

The main goal of diabetes management is, as far as possible, to restore carbohydrate metabolism to a normal state. To achieve this goal, individuals with an absolute deficiency of insulin require insulin replacement therapy, which is given through injections or an insulin pump. Insulin resistance, in contrast, can be corrected by dietary modifications and exercise. Other goals of diabetes management are to prevent or treat the many complications that can result from the disease itself and from its treatment.
