Herbal Ayurveda Management of Diabetes


Ayurveda is an ancient health system that is believed to be more than 5000 years old. The ancient Ayurvedic texts – Charakha Samhita, Sushrut Samhita, etc. – have considerable information about the different types of diabetes & their herbal treatments.



Ayurveda treatment consists of the herbs and remedies that may lower the blood sugar levels by reducing insulin resistance and correcting the insulin secretion. Furthermore, some strengthening herbs and rejuvenation Ayurvedic medicines may also help to stop weight loss. Diabetes is referred as "Prameh" in Ayurveda.


How to manage Diabetes Naturally with Ayurveda


Ayurveda Treatment pathway for Diabetes includes a complete health analysis of the imbalance of doshas and body constitution of the patient.  The treatment also includes regular blood sugar monitoring, healthy diet and lifestyle. 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.


Natural Remedies For Diabetes used Traditionally


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.

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.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • 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. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • 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.
