Homeopathic Management Of Diabetes Mellitus- An MIT Perspective

In spite of tall claims of curing diabetes with a ‘single’ dose of potentized drug, the sad truth is that homeopaths fail in curing diabetes in most occasions. Some of them desperately try to ‘lower’ the ‘sugar’ by administering large quantities of mother tinctures disregarding the similimum principle, but failure is the ultimate result. Most homeopaths even advise their patients to continue with allopathic medications along with homeopathic drugs.
Based on the MIT concepts, I hope to evolve a method of treatment for DIABETES using potentized homeopathic drugs. Our inquiry in this direction should begin with a clear understanding of molecular mechanism of pathology involved in diabetes.
What we call DIABETES is actually a large GROUP of metabolic diseases with entirely different MOLECULAR basis, but presenting through some what similar clinical problems. Clinically, all conditions with high blood sugar, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. are grouped under DIABETES. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).There are three main types of diabetes mellitus (DM).Type 1 DM results from the body’s failure to produce insulin, and currently requires the person to inject insulin or wear an insulin pump. This form was previously referred to as “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (IDDM) or “juvenile diabetes”.

Type 2 DM results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute insulin deficiency. This form was previously referred to as non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or “adult-onset diabetes”.

The third main form, gestational diabetes occurs when pregnant women without a previous diagnosis of diabetes develop a high blood glucose level. It may precede development of type 2 DM.

Other forms of diabetes mellitus include congenital diabetes, which is due to genetic defects of insulin secretion, cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, steroid diabetes induced by high doses of glucocorticoids, and several forms of monogenic diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is characterized by insulin resistance, which may be combined with relatively reduced insulin secretion. The defective responsiveness of body tissues to insulin is believed to involve the insulin receptor. In the early stage of type 2, the predominant abnormality is reduced insulin sensitivity. At this stage, hyperglycemia can be reversed by a variety of measures and medications that improve insulin sensitivity or reduce glucose production by the liver.

INSULIN RECEPTORS are transmembrane receptors that are activated by insulin, IGF-I, IGF-II and belongs to the large class of tyrosine kinase receptors. Metabolically, the insulin receptor plays a key role in the regulation of glucose homeostasis, a functional process that under degenerate conditions may result in a range of clinical manifestations including diabetes and cancer.

Endogenous ligands of INSULIN RECEPTORS include insulin, IGF-I and IGF-II. The binding of ligand to the receptor induces a chain of biochemical processes leading to blood glucose homeostasis.

Insulin receptors, work by causing the addition of a phosphate group to particular tyrosines on certain proteins within a cell, which eventually leads to an increase in the high affinity glucose transporter molecules on the outer membrane of insulin-responsive tissues, including muscle cells and adipose tissue, and therefore to an increase in the uptake of glucose from blood into these tissues. In other words, the glucose transporter molecules are transported from cellular vesicles to the cell surface, where it then can mediate the transport of glucose into the cell.

THIS IS THE EXACT MOLECULAR MECHANISM BY WHICH INSULIN CONTROLS SUGAR METABOLISM WITH IN THE CELLS

The main activity of activation of the insulin receptor is inducing glucose uptake. For this reason “insulin insensitivity”, or a decrease in insulin receptor signaling, leads to diabetes mellitus type 2 – the cells are unable to take up glucose, and the result is hyperglycemia or an increase in circulating glucose, and all the sequelae that result from diabetes.

There is a group of diabetic cases, where the defect is purely related with a GENETIC DISORDER, resulting in a totally non-functional insulin receptor. They present with fluctuations of the glucose level: After a meal the glucose is initially very high, and then falls rapidly to abnormally low levels. HOMEOPATHY HAS NO SCOPE IN THESE CASES.

Pre-diabetes indicates a condition that occurs when a person’s blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 DM. Many people destined to develop type 2 DM spend many years in a state of prediabetes which has been termed “America’s largest healthcare epidemic.”[10]:10–11

Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA) is a condition in which type 1 DM develops in adults. Adults with LADA are frequently initially misdiagnosed as having type 2 DM, based on age rather than etiology.

Genetic mutations (autosomal or mitochondrial) can lead to defects in beta cell function.

Abnormal insulin action may also have been genetically determined in some cases.

Any disease- CHRONIC PANCREATITIS, CYSTIC FIBROSIS- that causes extensive damage to the pancreas may lead to diabetes

Diseases associated with excessive secretion of insulin-antagonistic hormones can cause diabetes (which is typically resolved once the hormone excess is removed).

Many drugs impair insulin secretion and some toxins damage pancreatic beta cells, leading to DIABETES.

The following is a comprehensive list of other causes of diabetes:

1. Genetic defects of β-cell function- Maturity onset diabetes of the young- Mitochondrial DNA mutations

2. Genetic defects in insulin processing or insulin action- Defects in proinsulin conversion- insulin gene mutations- Insulin receptor mutations

3. Exocrine pancreatic defects- Chronic pancreatitis- Pancreatectomy- Pancreatic neoplasia- Cystic fibrosis- Hemochromatosis- Fibrocalculous pancreatopathy

4. Endocrinopathies- Growth hormone excess (acromegaly)- Cushing syndrome- Hyperthyroidism- Pheochromocytoma- Glucagonoma

5. Infections- Cytomegalovirus infection- Coxsackievirus B

6. Drugs- Glucocorticoids- Thyroid hormone- β-adrenergic agonists- Statins

My method of managing DIABETES:

SIMILIMUM is selected using PHYSICAL GENERALS, MENTALS and PARTICULARS. In certain cases, it may not be single, but multiple, depending upon symptoms. Doses repeated daily for long period.

CORTISONE 30, PITUTRIN 30, PANCREATINUM 30, INSULINUM 30, ACTH 30, THYROIDINUM 30, CARCINOCIN 30, ADRENALIN 30, SULPHUR 30 etc are also used ALONG WITH selected similimum.

In persons with genetic disposition for cancers, especially if there is such a family history, ANTIBODIES against proteins synthesized by mutant genes will be existing in their body- whether they have cancer or not. These cancer antibodies work as chronic miasm, by attacking various off-target biological molecules. In my opinion, we should consider CARCINOCIN to be included in all chronic prescriptions, especially METABOLIC diseases such as DIABETES and various AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

Pancreatic enzymes play a big role in destroying beta cells and producing a state of diabetes. Hence, molecular imprints of constituent molecules of pancreatic extract is expected to reverse it, if used before total destruction of beta cells. That is why PANCREATINUM 30 is incorporated in the prescription.

I started practicing homeopathy in 1970, when I was 20 years old and studying for final year of BSc (Zoology) course. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy. I was also deeply involved in studying marxism and dialectical materialism during my college days, which attracted me to political activities. MARXISM and HOMEOPATHY became two essential parts of my intellectual and practical life, which still continues so. Even though I joined DHMS course in a karnataka homeopathic college, I could not continue it due to my intense involvement in revolutionary political activities that resulted in jail life and a lot of criminal cases. Once that phase was over, I took a diploma in veterinary science and became a livestock inspector in animal husbandry department under govt of kerala. I have been continuing my study and practice of homeopathy all through these years. Since CCH act came into force only in 1976, and it contained provisions allowing existing practitioners to continue, my homeopathic practice went smoothly in parallel with my government job. In 1987, co-operating with some local homeopaths and social activists, I started Kannur District Homeopathic Hospital Sociey, which established a chain of hospitals and homeopathic clinics in different parts of Kannur district. After a few years I had to leave the society for some political reasons, and I established a 100 bedded well equipped homeopathic hospital in Taliparamba, employing a number of prominent homeopaths. That was ended up as a financial disaster for me due to many reasons, including my lack of skills as a money manager, and I was compelled to close down my dream project with in a short period. I lost huge money I invested, lost my reputation, and it pulled me into a debt trap. I learned a lot of valuabl lessons from this failure- about life, human psychology, relationships, and above all, about myself. I realized failure is the greatest teacher, if you are prepared learn from it. I learned how will power and determination to win will help us come back into life as a phoenix from our own ashes. I learned, one does not fail unless he stops fighting and accepts failure. My failure and the hardships that followed has moulded my personality in such a way that I can now withstand any disaster and fight back. I tell you, you will not know what life really is, unless you miserably fail at least once in your life. By this time, I left my government job also, and settled as a full time homeopathic practitioner. By this practice, I could repair my earlier financial losses, and establish well in life. It was during this period that I felt the need of developing a simple and user-friendly homeopathic software, that resulted in the evolution of SIMILIMUM, which was later upgraded into SIMILIMUM ULTRA. Similimum Ultra was well accepted by the profession, and it collected good revenues which continues even today. I stopped my practice a few years back , and concentrated in the study and research activities to evolve scientifically viable explanations to the so-called riddles of homeopathy. This unrelenting study resulted in MIT or Molecular Imprints Therapeutics, which provides a scientific and rational explanation for homeopathy. I started a homeopathic discussion group on facebook called HOMEOPATHY FOR TOTAL CURE, which has more than 35000 homeopaths as members. By this work on facebook, I could establish close relationship with many homeopaths around the world. It goes on. I could successfully convert facebook as my office and work place, from where I propagate my MIT ideas, co-ordinate my works for homeopathic community, and sell my Similimum Ultra Software. My years of hardwork in search of HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS ultimately resulted in the publication of a book titled REDEFINING HOMEOPATHY (3000 pages, 3 volumes, hard bound, Rs 6000), in which I have compiled my articles regarding my scientific explanations of basic principles of homeopathy. These ideas are called MIT or MOLECULAR IMPRINTS THERAPEUTICS. MIT is now included in the syllabus of MD (HOM) course of prestigious DY PATIL DEEMED UNIVERSITY, PUNE, INDIA. Research department of SARADA KRISHNA HOMEOPATHIC COLLEGE, Kulashekharam, Tamilnadu, India, the only NAC accredited homeopathy college in India, has recently taken up certain reserch projects for proving the scientific explanations proposed by MIT. Based on MIT perspective of homeopathy, I had developed an MIT PROTOCOL for scientific homeopathy, and initiated a project for establishing a chain of MIT NETWORK CLINICS all over India, where MIT PROTOCOL will be practiced. More over, I have developed a whole range of 351 MIT FORMULATIONS, which are disease-specific combinations of post-avogadro diluted homeopathy drugs. NOW I AM IN 71st YEAR OF MY LIFE, AND STILL LOOKING FOR NEW HORRIZONS!
