It is a universally accepted fact that good health plays an important role in human development, day to day life and every aspect of life you can think of. According to the concepts of Ayurveda, good health is based on the equilibrium of dosha (humor), agni (digestive fire), dhatu (seven body tissues: lymph, blood, muscle, adipose tissue, bone, bone marrow, semen), and mala (feces, urine, and other waste products). Furthermore, in Ayurveda there is clear-cut emphasis on maintaining physical, mental, and spiritual well-being as part of good health. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines good health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity, which is close to the definition of good health mentioned in Ayurvedic books like ‘Charak Samhita’ and others.

Streptococcal pharyngitis, also known as strep throat, is a contamination of the back of the throat including the tonsils by a bacteria.

Diabetes also known as ‘Prameha’ and ‘Madhumeha’ in Ayurveda, is becoming a more and more common disease in the modern age of easy and relaxing life. Every now and then we come to know new patients of Diabetes. Sugar or glucose in our diet, provides energy for our body but if the sugar concentration in our blood increases very much then it is not good for our body and this is known as Diabetes. Insulin is a hormone produced by our body to keep the sugar level in control. Diabetes happens if the body is not capable of producing insulin or if the body becomes resistant to insulin. As we all know about the side-effects from the conventional allopathic drugs, a safe and easy alternative like Ayurveda becomes more important. Ayurveda have been treating Diabetes since the time of ‘Charka’ and ‘Shush rut’. The knowledge and effectiveness of the Ayurveda can be understood by the fact that Ayurveda has classified Diabetes into 20 categories and Ayurvedic Diabetes cure are also described in detail.
