    Dear Dr.Janardhan. It is very nice to hear you through mails. Traditional practictioners are very rarely using this media. To-day when I received your mail it may look facinating that you have reached 5000 readers. No wonder. But you find different ways to reach out and wish you to keep it up. This is an acceptance of new trends in reaching mass. Serve to needy. God may give you more strength and a way of life – Ayurveda – a science which taught you the way of life

      Dear Vanitha,
      Thanks for cordial compliments.
      I do not think there is any specific medicine in both Siddha and Ayurveda that would cure type 1 diabetes.

      Just take it into a mortar and grind with a pestle. The color varies based on the quality of herb and place from where the herb is collected. Do not worry much about it.

    Bhui amla – whole plant is used. It can be used in two ways –
    1. Its plants are collected, washed thoroughly. Juice is crushed and consumed in a dose of 6 – 12 ml, once or twice a day, depending upon the disease condition.
    2. its whole plants are collected, washed thoroughly, dried under shade. – powdered and administered in a dose of 3 – 6 grams per day.

    Bhumi Amalaki plant can be crushed into paste form and can be taken in place of powder. But the dose of this paste needs to be double than the dose of powder. Suppose you were prescribed 3 grams of powder then the dose of the paste needs to be 6 grams.
    Its whole plant – leaves, etc together is used.
    But root etc should be thoroughly cleaned before consuming it.

    Sitaram .People in ancient times had a lot of knowldge about herbs. I have seen farmers and labours in mountains used to know about trees and their qualities but new education system and medicines stopped all this knowledge flow. They used bhumi amla, bhringaraj , punarnava ,kutki ,giloy ,kalmegh, makoy ,arjun ,daruhaldi ,neem,tulasi and make gulikas tablets with resin or some gummy material for all digestive ailments and healthy liver before food. and even patanjali liv 38 and other medicines use these herbs. Your article was amazing to read. Thank you.
