It is recommended that your herbal treatments should also be discussed with your medical professional to ensure you are not at risk of too much reduction in blood sugar level especially if you are also taking conventional oral hypoglycaemic agents, as the combination sometimes may lead to hypoglycaemia.

There are many natural remedies for diabetes mentioned in the Ayurveda Texts. Ayurveda herbs may help to treat and naturally manage Type-2 Diabetes but some of the Ayurvedic herbal products may also play important role in preventing or delaying the complications related to Type -1 Diabetes. Ayurveda aims to restore a healthy lifestyle and avoid or delay complications, rather than curing the disease.


Ayurveda Herbs Used Traditionally in the Management of Type-1 and Type-2 Diabetes are:



Vijaysar (Pterocarpus marsupium)


It is a rasayana which means that it helps in energizing the body. This herb may helps to detoxify the body and may support exceretion of the unwanted products refered as ama in Ayurveda. It may be useful in treating the disorders where the symptom includes discolouration of urine.


Aswagandha (Withania somnifera)


Aswagandha is used traditionally in Indian medicines for thousands of year to fight general weakness, stress, depression, insomnia, neuropathic diseases and diabetes. In diabetes type symptoms, it may work on pancreas and protects the cells from further damage.


Gurmar Leaves (Gymnema sylvestrae)


Gymnema sylvestrae is considered to works on pancreas. It may help to improves the health of pancreas gland. It may reduces blood sugar levels.


Karela (Momordica charantia)


Momordica charantia is bitter in taste. It may reduce blood sugar levels. It may also be beneficial in high cholesterol levels, fever, skin diseases, abdominal cramps, psoriasis and hemorrhoids.



Home Remedies For Diabetes  


Below mention recipes are some of the common home remedies for diabetes. 


  • Gymnema Sylvestre – The leaves of this plant are dried and made into a powder which is then consumed daily with lukewarm water. The recommended dosage per day is one teaspoon.
  • Momordica chirantia Karvellaka – Called Karella by the locals, the juice of this vegetable is considered very useful for treating a variety of disorders, including Diabetes.

All these herbs considered to possess a characteristic that may help reduce insulin resistance. As Ayurveda believes, insulin resistance may occur due to the unwanted byproducts called as "ama" accumulation in the body or body channel blockage. Trikatu may help to remove this blockage and help to eliminate accumulated toxins from the body.

Virechana is a purgation therapy used in Ayurveda panchkarma treatments to help expel excess toxins from the body. It may helps in reducing insulin resistance and enhances insulin sensitivity by offering cleansing effect to the body.

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system.

  • Dr saini, explains very well..has really helped me overcome all health problems I had been facing. Will definitely recommend and safest solution to any health issues..thank you once again for your time and effort.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

    Christine Medley

  • Hello all, I have been consulting Dr. Saini for past 2years or so and have found his treatment very helpful and effective. He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

    Rekha Gupta

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I am very happy with the treatment and thankful for Dr.Saini. I was suffering from psoriasis for past 7 years. I never had such an improvement with any medications before. Psoriasis in my face was completed cleared in first 3 months. And almost 50% improvement in other places of my body in last one month. Ayurveda has a better impact on mind , body and soul rather than harmful anti immune tablets which is used as a medication for the condition. I really appreciate Dr.Saini for the his compassion.
