Diabetes Mellitus is a nutritional disorder, characterized by an abnormally elevated level of blood sugar accompanied with the excretion of the excess glucose in the urine. This abnormality in carbohydrate metabolism as well as in the metabolism of fat and protein is known to the world since time immemorial. Its incidence rate has soared at present than ever in the past due to widespread affluence and more generous food supply. As one of the first among diabetic self-management tips, individuals should use self-screening test appliances (Glucometer) for periodic determination of fasting and 2-hour post-prandial blood glucose levels. A diabetic feels persistent, excessive thirst which can be quenched by drinking the sherbet (sweet soft juice) prepared by adding lemon juice and sugar to the juice of Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) leaves.
The onset of diabetes in 85% of the cases has an underlying genetic trait. It is considered almost impossible to prevent and cure hereditary diseases by using allopathic medicines. But, Tulsi possesses a special capacity to free the body from all hereditary abnormalities. Stated in ‘Padmapurana’, if the woody trunk of Tulsi, or clay in which a Tulsi plant is growing, is rubbed like sandalwood on a grinding stone and the resulting paste is smeared regularly on the forehead, hereditary diseases can be prevented and cured to a very great extent.
