You can come with all your past medical reports and records, if you have any. If you are suffering from any chronic problems, you can make a chronological record of your symptoms and the treatment undertaken and dietary habits and lifestyle. Ideally, being on an empty stomach before your appointment is better for traditional diagnosis.
"Health is not just being disease-free. Health is when every cell in your body is bouncing with life." - Sadhguru
Who is the Diabetes Management Program designed for?
This is an exclusive weekend therapeutic program designed by Sadhguru to enable people with diabetes to create a basis for holistic management of their condition.
What can you expect from the Diabetes Management Program?
“In yoga, if there is diabetes, we see it as a very fundamental disturbance – diabetes is not taken lightly as a disease. We see that the fundamental structure of the basic body is being disturbed. That is why diabetes happens. And it is different in each individual. For each person, the level of disturbance and the type of disturbance that happens in each system is very different. So it needs to be handled individually. However, irrespective of what the disease is, yoga only aims at balancing and energizing or activating the energy body. The basic premise in yoga is that if your energy body is in full flow and properly balanced, there can be no chronic disease either in your physical body or your mental body. Diabetes will go because we are not treating the disease as such, we are seeing disease only as a manifestation of the disturbance that could be existing in the energy body. So if people are willing to do a certain amount of sadhana to balance and activate their energy body, they can definitely be free of all chronic ailments.” – Sadhguru

It is best you continue with your Allopathic medicines until you see our doctors. During your consultation, you will be guided on how best to proceed with any changes. In our experience, generally, allopathic and traditional medicines do not interact with one another. If there is a specific situation, our doctors will advise you.
Our medicines are prepared following rigorous methods of manufacturing, adhering to high safety standards. Some people wrongly believe that the Ayurvedic and Siddha medicines can potentially harm the body, specifically liver and kidneys. Medicines that are carefully prepared as described in the ancient texts will not cause any harm
Some of our medicines do contain metals, however not all medicines contain heavy metals. When properly purified, these are highly effective and even curative for some diseases. All our medicines are carefully prepared as instructed in the ancient texts, under the supervision of experienced personnel. When prepared meticulously, the metals become medicinal and hence will not cause any harm. However, if you do not want to be prescribed medicines which contain metals, you can inform the doctor.
