Actually all the measures taken apart from

His experience (which can not be a
prescription but a kind of clue to the
approach and attitude) is that; the
supportive treatment proves more useful
His blood pp (post prandial i.e. two hour
after food) glucose was not coming down
below 300 mg in spite of 2000 mg of
metformin and glimeperide 2 mg and 80
mg of gliaclazide.
The first thing he did was to defy the fear
of any situation imaginable. Usually
medical doctors get afraid due to the
thoughts of horrendous complications of
diabetes, which they read in their
curriculum. Hence he was also getting
worried and extremely anxious by thought
of misery and helplessness.
He could however; overcome fear, due to
the practice of remembering God i.e. true
self, i.e. remembering His name.
This is called NAMASMARAN in Sanskrit,
Hindi, Marathi and many languages in
India. The practice of NAMASMARAN
appears wired and
irrational to many. Even he used to think
that way. But he realized later that it could
rescue him from the distressing,
suffocating and vacillating negative and
positive ideas and thoughts and help him
merge with himself. This was a great
experience of freedom from the prison
which apparently he himself created in the
state of ignorance!
No other measures such as getting more
money, more fame, more tangible success
in the form of accolades, socializing, chit
chatting, chatting on net, partying, movies,
picnics, music and even the tenacious
practice of pranayama and yoga could do
it, in his case!
In the course of the practice of
NAMASMARAN he became more and
more oriented to the most cherished
aspects of his life and began to get involved
in them on priority basis and in spite of
distractions and disturbances!
As a result of this buoyancy, he began to
feel that every moment and every good or
bad situation in life is a great opportunity
to grow within and merge with his true self
(which is said to be not different from
So he began to sleep well and get up early,
began to take bath twice every day, began
drinking water every morning and began
rubbing gums and palate regularly,
happily and enthusiastically.
He began taking salad and sprouted methi
(fenugreek seeds) without a stressful sick
feeling of compulsion and a sick feeling of
being a miserable and helpless patient!
He began to explore other possibilities and
began consuming (Homeopathic) acid phos
30, lactic acid 30 and sygygium mother
tincture and (Ayurvedic) standard
He began consumption of juice of ginger,
Amala, bitter gourd, turmeric, pudina,
neem, tulsi etc. with joy.
He began to climb the stairs regularly and
avoid the lift i.e. elevators with a
sense of victory.
He also began foot massage, acupressure,
eye exercises and yogasana and pranayama
with great thrill and assurance to grow
within and achieve and enjoy the
profoundest romance in life.
Presently his blood sugar pp has come
down to 90 mg to 101 mg (the tests were
repeated four times to confirm the
accuracy of results) with almost half the
dose of metformin and without
There can be many more tools in the
repertoire of therapy of diabetes, but he
shared his experience in brief.
I know nothing is certain and permanent.
Nothing is "absolute truth" including what
he has shared. Nothing can be guaranteed
to benefit yet another person. But the
feeling underlying his sharing is eternal
