In Ayurveda, Diabetes is known as Madhumeha (Madhu means ‘honey’ and Meha means ‘urine’). Medhumeha is categorized as Vataj Meha (a problem caused by the aggravation of Vata). Vata is Bodily humor symbolizing wind and dryness. Deterioration of the body is a characteristic that indicates impairment of Vata. Maximum deterioration of dhatus (body tissues) occurs in this type of disease and this is the reason why all vital organs are affected by Diabetes.
The other prime cause of Diabetes is impaired digestion. Impaired digestion leads to the accumulation of specific digestive impurities (known as ama) which accumulate in the pancreatic cells and impair the production of insulin.
The treatment of Diabetes recommended in Ayurveda as against modern medicine is aimed at rejuvenating the body to not only balance sugar levels but also foster a positive change in the patient’s life. Ayurvedic medicines work on the root cause of the disease, strengthening the patient’s immunity, enhancing digestion, and helping him lead an overall healthy life. Along with medication, dietary and lifestyle changes are also recommended to rejuvenate the body’s cells and tissues, allowing them to produce insulin properly.
As diabetic complication the disease effects 3 main vital points (3 Marmas) of body. They are Shiras(Head), Hrudaya (Heart) and Vasti (Urinary Bladder) – which causes Visual problems (Diabetic retinopathy) Memory loss, Psuedo hunger, Heart disease, Loss of sensation (Diabetic Neuropathy) and Kidney disorders, Urine Incontinence, Prostatic complaints ( Diabetic Nephropathy) along with the chance of Nonhealing Ulcers and Gangrenes.

Diabetes is caused by excessive consumption of ahara(food) which is garishta( heavy to digest), Navanapanam which means food prepared by newly harvested grains, amla ras (acitic juices), Akshay sukham or snigdha(unctuous). These factors aggravate kapha dosha, creating an unhealthy variation among fatty tissues. It also imbalance the fluid(kleda) of the body. This fluid(kinda) moves towards the urinary system and causes excessive urination and leads to premeham.
PanchKarma for Diabetes:
PanchKarma finds the roots of diabetes in patient and purifies it from toxins. PuchKarma naturally cleanses your body through medicinal oils and removes unwanted waste from body. This helps maintain the balance of elements in body and impowers the immune system.
How does it works?
Through abhyangam massage, muscles get relaxation and better circulation, increasing the absorbtion of glucose and excess amount of insulin. In the next step of swedanam, all toxins come from skin-by-skin pores in the form of sweat. Then use of medicated oils, and medicated powder massage reduces medas dhatu or fatty tissues of the body. Then doshas are removed from the faeces of the rectum. In this way, all-over body detoxification happens with the help of ancient and safe ayurvedic treatment.
