The main causes of prameha (diabetes) are lack of exercise and improper food habits in excess food intake which falls in the category of ushna, snigdha and guru are the primal cause of this disease – fish, curd are good examples.
Putting it as plainly as possible, the above is simply not the case. Fish and curd do not cause diabetes.
It is expected that an ancient system such as this would treat this sort of disease with diet (and magical oils that probably do some good in most cases.)
However, were I to follow this course of treatment my life would be cut short so, thanks but no thanks.
Sassoon General Hospital’s six-month trial on the use of ayurvedic treatment to control diabetes has provided a ray of hope. In what can be termed as a breakthrough of sorts, a majority of diabetic patients in the clinical trial showed relief of symptoms in just two months of ayurvedic treatment, while one diabetic patient successfully managed on ayurvedic treatment without insulin.
The clinical trial on 63 patients was undertaken to find out the effect of ayurvedic treatment on diabetic patients. Around 46 patients (73 per cent) responded to ayurvedic diabetic treatment, where a statistically significant difference was found in the blood sugar levels. One out of 14 Type 1 diabetic patient successfully managed on ayurvedic treatment without insulin, while nine patients of Type 1 diabetes (those requiring insulin) showed reduction in the dosage of insulin from 35 units to 21.6 units.
Dr Sarita Gaikwad, Head of the Department of Ayurved, Sassoon General Hospital, told The Indian Express that a majority of patients showed relief. The effect of the ayurvedic diabetic therapy was more pronounced in patients with Type 2 diabetes (those not requiring insulin). Allopathic drugs were completely stopped in 19 patients, whereas in 14 patients the dosage was reduced after 180 days of treatment. While 43 participants in the study were males, there were two children below 10 years. The average age group was 31 and above.

There is ample evidence and the problem is how are the masses going to handle the information.

Think glass, brick, ceramic, cut gems - last tens, hundreds and even millions of years - not to mention violation of the soil - the sediments remember. As do pollens and chemicals in lake sediments.
No sign of "advanced" civilizations - but we can find plenty of evidence of ancient man during the same period...........
not necessarily. high tech item have a very low half-life of survivability outside of controlled environments. Bury a laptop for five years and see what comes out, much less try to access any of it memory.
technology has to be built durable, and we don't do that. Our technology is not hardened for much of anything - my own laptop, which never comes out in the daylight, has had keys pop off, a motherboard warp, and other such things. Now, if I exposed it to the out of doors on top of this, I would probably have a dead lump of electronics by now.
