To help manage type 2 diabetes, the Kapha-balancing diet should include the following:
- Eating food sources that are light, dry, and warm and keeping away from food varieties that are slick, cold, and weighty.
- Milk products aggravate Kapha Dosha, so avoiding or reducing their consumption is preferable. You can eat low-fat milk products. Ghee helps to strengthen the digestive fire, so use it sparingly.
- More beans and legumes are needed in the Kapha diet. Moong beans, in particular, are highly beneficial to people with diabetes.
- Wheat and rice are heavy and hard to break down. You can eat light grains like corn and millet.
- Spices are beneficial to Kapha dosha and should be used in cooking. The diet must include pepper, mustard, garlic, and ginger.
- Ginger tea helps with digestion. However, salt should either be avoided or consumed in moderation.
- Meats should be avoided because they may cause inflammation, according to Ayurveda.
- Consuming warm food is necessary for blood sugar control in the diet. Warm water should be drunk by patients.
- Diabetes management is more accessible by eating bitter foods. A vital vegetable that should be consumed is the bitter gourd. Another essential spice that should be included in the diet is turmeric.
- Fried foods, tuber vegetables, soft drinks, mangoes, custard apples, dates, and bananas should all be avoided.
Proteins like chickpeas, mung, lentils, masoor, mung dal, and soya bean products. Vegetables like spinach, leafy greens, dudhi (bottle gourd), turai, bhopla (white pumpkin), padwal (snake gourd), karela (bitter gourd), broccoli, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, zucchini, all leafy greens and all kinds of cooked vegetables are very good. Cereals like green millet, ragi, corn, kulit (horse gram), jwari and barley (jav).
Note: If you have a kidney problem, you may need more vegetables and less protein. Foods to avoid: rice, potatoes, fruits, white flour, wheat, deep fried foods, red meat.
- First two days—fasting with ginger water only
