Ayurvedic Tips for Diabetes and sleep disorders


Depending on your symptoms, it may help you to gather information on your sleep behaviors. Some tests conducted by doctors to diagnose sleep disorders are as follows:

  • Sleep history & sleep log: Your doctor will ask you to maintain a sleep diary and feed information in it based on your sleep patterns, breathing problems, extent of discomfort while sleeping etc. He may evaluate the information regularly to diagnose any particular sleep disorder.
  • Sleep recording in a laboratory: A sleep recording graph is usually done at a sleep laboratory, where your sleeping patterns, breathing pattern, brain, eye, muscle, heart and blood pressure patterns are evaluated.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Ayurvedic herbs, Ashwagandha (to deceases cortisol levels), Brahmi, Shankhapushpi, Jatamansi and Vidari are recommended to soothe vata. Calcium or magnesium-rich foods are important as they are natural sleep inducers (e.g. milk, almonds, brewer’s yeast).
  • In Pitta insomnia must also eat pitta-soothing foods like wheat, basmati rice, oats, barley and corn, millet and rye in moderation and drink cooling herbal teas, like tulsi, rose, liquorice, coriander, and avoid alcohol and caffeine.
  • In Kapha insomnia a kapha-pacifying regime would be beneficial – grains like barley, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, corn, millet, rye, oats, rice and wheat; avoiding vegetables like mashed potatoes, turnips, parsnips etc.; favouring lighter fruits, such as apples, pears are better for Kapha. Reduce heavy or sour fruits, such as oranges, bananas, pineapples, figs, dates, avocados, coconuts and melons.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Counselling, light exercise, yoga, walking, breathing exercise – Pranayama, meditation are helpful in this condition.
