In one of the previous blogs, we discussed case of a person who developed diabetes because of use of green tea, which had inflamed his pancreas and brain leading to poor production of insulin and stress. This blog we shall discuss another birth chart (kundli) to analyze dosha that caused him diabetes requiring a different Ayurvedic approach to treat/cure him.
*** Please do go through the previous blogs (click here I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII,VIII, IX,X) to understand that how exactly Astrology evolved from Ayurveda if you wish to understand this blog in totality..
Here we go… First house of the person with Sun and Mercury (that too in its own zodiac) reveals that he is an intelligent fellow (sun represents pitta meaning intelligence and mercury represent VPK meaning intellect). However first house is also getting 9th aspect of ketu and 5th aspect of Jupiter which conveys that apart from Sun’s and Mercury’s aspect, the person is getting influenced by high Kapha towards his mind (remember aspect is influence of other houses/relations and not direct placement of a dosh). Despite influence of high kapha on mind, the person is high on energy due to seventh aspect (influence) of mars from 7th house on first.
However the bigger issue that lies here is that Ketu and Jupiter are aspecting each other with 5th and 9th aspect respectively making this influence of kapha even more pronounced. 9th aspect of Jupiter on 5th house also indicates a very sluggish pancreas with moon in 5th further adding kapha. The overall picture that emerges here is that apart from influence of Kapha in the brain, the person also has lots of kapha in pancreas leading to a typical Kapha type diabetes unlike the previous case where diabetes was type 1.5 or more towards type 1.
Thus medicines like Bael fruit will not work here as the aim is to increase inflammation in the entire body. So here medicines like Madhunashini Vati will work wonders which are a combination of various herbs which are pungent, astringent and a bit bitter. Even green tea in moderation (having all these three tastes) will work here however it doesn’t mean that we have all green tea and madhunashini vati in excess. Its important to take feedback from the body on regular basis by checking level of sugar in the body on regular basis to taper off these tastes as and when moves towards cure and remove them altogether when one is completely cured.
Remember no medicine (not even ayurvedic) needs to be taken forever for a disease. If you have to take it, you are not getting cured, you are just managing it which is not a good situation as long term usage of any medicine (including ayurvedic) is bound to create side effects. The difference is that unlike allopathic medicines (which show immediate address of symptoms), ayurvedic medicines show improvement slowly and gradually as they work on deep seated doshas. So if you are getting an immediate response to a medicine (and not a gradual one), it may not be right.
While intense exercises are good to pacify typical kapha dosha, Rahu in 11th house in aries zodiac of mars (meaning excessively high vata) makes his lower knee and shin area weak (that is so on ground too). And that’s why instead of jogging/running/cardio, he should perform Bhastrika on daily basis which will pacify his kapha by increasing pitta but will not put pressure on his knees and shin. Even Agnisar kriya will help him.
