Author : Gurnam Saini  



Prameha- Ayurvedic co-relation to symptoms of Diabetes


Note- This article offers in depth knowledge of Prameha (Diabetes) in context of Ayurveda, so it has multiple sanskrit words etc, if you find it difficult to understand, you can choose to read the simple and easy to understand version on this link


What is Prameha


The word Prameha is composed of two words – Prakarshena Mehati meaning one who urinates profusely and frequently (Prakarshena means profusely and Mehati means one who urinates).


Causative Factors of Diabetes Mellitus based on Ayurveda Medicine 


Ayurveda Treatment for Diabetes Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic




  1. Ayasya Sukham: Lack of physical exertion
  2. Svapna Sukham: Excess sleep during day and night
  3. Gramya Audhaka Anupa Rasa: Intake of meat of animals residing in water or marshy places
  4. Payamsi Dadhini: Excessive consumption of milk, milk products, and curds. 
  5. Nava Anna Pana: Intake of freshy harvested grains and consumption of new, unformed liquor. 
  6. Guda: Excessive intake of sweets or food items made up of sugarcane or jaggery. 
  7. Bija Dosha: Genetic defects


Pathogenesis of Diabetes Mellitus based on Ayurveda Medicine


Due to excess indulgence in the above said causative factors, all three Dosha along with Rasa (Plasma), Rakta (Blood), Mamsa (Muscle), Meda (Fat), Majja (Bone marrow), Udaka (water components), Lasika (Lymph), Vasa (Muscle fat), Shukra (Reproductive tissue), Ojas (Vitality of all tissues) and Kleda (Unctuousness or moisture) contribute to the pathogenesis of Diabetes.


The prime factors involved in pathogenesis are Kapha Dosha, Mamsa, Medas and Kleda. As the disease progresses slowly, other components also participate in the pathogenesis leading to severity of the disease. Vitiated Kapha, Medas and Kleda lead to Agnimandhya (Low digestive & metabolic fire). This leads to Ama or endotoxin formation which blocks the Srotas (channels of circulation). As Vata Dosha, especially Vyana Vata moves in the circulatory channels, it is obstructed in its regular pathway and lodges in the Mutra Marga (Urinary system) thus vitiating Apana Vata also and producing Prameha. As Vyana Vata is obstructed, the nutrients are not properly transported to the Dhatus which affects Dhatu formation and nourishment.

Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus based on Ayurveda Medicine


The two main characteristic features of Prameha explained by different Acharyas are -


  • Prabhuta Mutrata: Frequent urination and expulsion of large volume of urine. Due to the liquefaction of the pathogenic factors, excess quantity of urine is passed.  
  • Avila Mutrata: Turbid urine occurs because the pathogenic factors vitiate the urine.


Frequent and excess urination occurs because of metabolic changes in the body whereas turbidity of urine occurs because of abnormalities in the urinary tract.


Acharya Kashayapa explains the symptoms of Prameha in children.


Akasmat Mutra Nirgamana: Involuntary / uncontrolled excretion of urine suddenly.

Makshika Akaranta: Urine is attracted by flies.

Shweta Mutrata: Whitish colour of urine

Ghana Mutrata: Turbid urine.


Classification of Diabetes Mellitus based on Ayurveda Medicine


  1. According to Causative Factor
    • Sahaja (Hereditary / Genetic defects)
    • Apathya Nimittaja (Due to unhealthy diet and activities).


  1. According to the Therapeutic Management
    • Apatarpanajanya (Weak & emaciated)
    • Santarpanajanya (Strong & obese)


  1. According to Doshic Predominance
    • Kaphaja (10 types)
    • Pittaja (6 types)
    • Vataja (4 types)


Symptoms of Sahaja Prameha


Krisha: Emaciated

Raukshya: Dryness of the body

Alpa Bhojana: Consumes less food

Bahu Pipasa: Increased thirst

Parisarana Shila: Restlessness


Symptoms of Apathya Nimittaja Prameha


Sthuli: Obese

Bahuashi: Consumes too much quantity of food

Snigdha: Unctuousness of the body

Shayyasana Svapna Shila: Enjoys sitting and sleeping always


Symptoms of Kaphaja Prameha


Factors that aggravate Kapha Dosha in the body are


  • Excess intake of freshly harvested grains, meat of sheep, pig and fish, preparations made of green gram and black gram fried in ghee, wheat preparations, green leafy vegetables, sweet dishes, sugarcane, milk products, unformed curds
  • Avoidance of physical exercise or exertion, desire to sit or sleep always increase, not maintaining personal hygiene


Because of the above factors, Kapha Dosha in the body, especially the Drava Guna (Liquidity nature) of Kapha increases. Also Agnimandhya (Decreased digestive capacity) and Ama (endotoxins) are formed because of indulgence in these causative factors. Because of Ama, Kleda (unwanted liquid waste product formed during normal digestive process) becomes vitiated too thus leading to Kaphaja Prameha.


Different types of Kaphaja Prameha and their characteristic feature are explained in the below table.


Type of Kaphaja Prameha

Nature of Kapha aggravation


Udaka Meha

Shita (Coldness)

Accha (Transparent)

Shweta (White)

Crystal clear, colourless, odourless urine which resembles water

Volume of voided urine is large


Ikshu Meha

Picchila (Slimy)

Shita (Cold)

Madura (Sweet)

Turbid, cold and sweet urine just like sugarcane juice

Volume of voided urine is comparatively less

Sandra Meha

Sandra (Dense)

Picchila (Slimy)

Urine is more viscous and turbid

Sandraprasada Meha

Sandra (Dense)

Picchila (Slimy)

On keeping still, lower part of the urine becomes turbid and precipitated whereas upper part remains clear, that is partly viscous and partly clear


Shukla Meha

Shweta (White)

Guru (Heavy)

Urine is white and turbid as if mixed with flour

Shukra Meha

Shweta (White)

Snigdha (Unctuous)

Urine appears like semen or sometimes small amount of seminal fluid may be actually mixed with voided urine

Sheeta Meha

Guru (Heavy)

Madhura (Sweet)

Shita (Cold)

Urine is cold and the coldness is experiences while passing urine. Also urine is sweet in taste.

Sikata Meha

Manda (Slow)

Sandra (Dense)

Urine is gravelly, that is several sand like particles are expelled along with the urine

Shanair Meha

Manda (Slow)

Slow and scanty flow of urine although bladder is full

Lala Meha

Picchila (Slimy)

Urine is sticky, fibrous and resembles saliva or phlegm.


Symptoms of Pittaja Prameha


Factors aggravating Pitta Dosha in the body are


  • Excess intake of hot, spicy, pungent, salty, alkaline and sour food, over eating, intake of incompatible food items
  • Excessive physical exertion, too much exposure to sun, excess steam bath, too much anger or irritability


Because of indulgence in above causative factors, Pitta Dosha aggravates in the body, in combination with Kapha Dosha and other vitiated Dhatus, it produces Pitta type of Prameha.


Type of Pittaja Prameha


Kshara Meha

The colour, taste, odour and nature of urine feels as if mixed with alkali

Kala Meha

Colour changes to black as if mixed with black tar

Neela Meha

Colour of urine changes to blue and resembles feathers of kingfisher bird. Voided urine is frothy. Process of urination is slow

Lohita Meha

Nature of urine is salty, hot, foul smelling like raw fish and reddish as though mixed with blood

Manjishta Meha

Urine is foul smelling, dark brownish red and resembles decoction of Manjishta (Rubia cordifolia) herb. Volume of urine is large.

Haridra Meha

Colour of urine resembles water mixed with turmeric powder. Taste of urine is astringent and pungent


Symptoms of Vataja Prameha


Factors aggravating Vata Dosha in the body are


  • Excess intake of sharp, spicy, astringent, bitter, cold and light to digest food items, prolonged fasting
  • Excess sexual indulgence, over exertion, faulty application of Panchakarma, suppression of natura urges, trauma, staying awake late at night, worries, grief


Indulgence in the above causative factors leads to increase of Vata Dosha which combines further with Kapha and Pitta Dosha and other vitiated Dhatus to produce Vata type of Prameha. Due to the dryness and roughness of Vata Dosha, Dhatukshaya (Diminution of tissue health) is observed.


Type of Vataja Prameha


Vasa Meha

Urine has appearance of muscle fat or mixed with muscle fat

Majja Meha

Urine has appearance of bone marrow or mixed with bone marrow

Hasti Meha

Volume of urine is large and flow is forceful resembling the urination of elephant.

Urge to urinate is uncontrolled and emptying of bladder is unsatisfactory.

Madhu Meha

The properties of Ojas and Vata are opposite. Ojas is unctuous, smooth, stable and soft whereas Vata is dry, rough, mobile and light. As Vata gets aggravated, the properties of Ojas get diminished. This vitiated Ojas gets expelled through the urine and hence urine resembles honey in appearance and taste, that is urine is turbid, extremely sweet and expelled in large quantity. It is said that over period of time, all types of Diabetes turn to Madhu Meha due to continuous indulgence in causative factors and not taking timely treatment. 


Ayurvedic Medicine for Diabetes Type 2


People suffering from Diabetes Type 2 are of two types – obese & strong / emaciated & weak. Obese & strong people should be treated with Shodhana Karma (Purificatory therapies) whereas emaciated & weak people should be treated with Brmhana Karma (Nourishing therapies). 



Treat Diabetes with Pure Herbal Ayurveda Clinic



For strong and obese persons –

  • Langhana (Fasting)
  • Vamana (Therapeutic emesis)
  • Virechana (Therapeutic purgation)


For weak and emaciated persons –

  • Santarpana (Nourishing)
  • Shamana (Pacification therapies)


Approach to Kaphaja Prameha - As Kapha Dosha has similar properties as that of Medas and are vitiated in the same place, similar line of treatment is effective in the management of vitiated Kapha Dosha and other vitiated elements in Prameha. Vamana and Langhana are beneficial.


Approach to Pittaja Prameha - As Pitta and Medas are opposite in nature, line of treatment for Pitta Dosha will be administration of unctuous, cold and sweet herbs whereas for the vitiated tissues will be pungent, hot and dry substances which are incompatible. Also since Pitta is located in the Amashaya which is closest to the location of Medas tissue, hence vitiation of Pitta or Medas will vitiate the other due to the anatomical position. Thus aim of treatment should be to balance Pitta and Medas using herbs and therapies which will be beneficial for restoring the balance of both Pitta and the other vitiated tissues. Virechana is beneficial.


Approach to Vataja Prameha - Vata and Medas are opposite in nature. Treatment to balance Vata Dosha involves the use of unctuous, heavy, nourishing herbs which in turn vitiate the Dhatus further. Hence line of treatment should be to balance both Vata and vitiated tissues by the use of hot potency, bitter herbs. Basti and Tailapana are beneficial.


  • If Vata is aggravated along with vitiated Kapha and Pitta, unctuous preparations are suggested.
  • For Kapha aggravation, medicated oils prepared with Kapha alleviating herbs is beneficial.
  • For Pitta vitiation, medicated ghee processed with Pitta alleviating herbs is useful.
  • For all types of Prameha – Decoction of Triphala, Darunisha, Vishala and Musta mixed with paste of Haridra and Honey.
  • Regular intake of Mung, Amalaki, dry corn-flour, roasted barley is beneficial in Prameha. 


The first step towards treatment should be to remove Ama, correct Agni, restore balance of Kapha and Pitta by purificatory procedures. Later Vata should be treated with nourishing therapies in order to bring balance of Vata and for proper formation and nourishment of the Dhatus. Vamana and Virechana remove excess Kapha and unctuousness from the body thereby removing obstruction in the Srotas. Vamana reduces Kapha and Medas. Virechana reduces Kapha and Pitta and restore the functioning of Digestive and metabolic fire. Basti clears obstruction of Vata, normalizes the function of Apana and Vyana, helps in proper formation of Dhatus and rejuvenates the body.


Panchakarama Detox for Diabetes Mellitus


Rukshana (Therapies that increase dryness in the body)


Rukshana therapy is the administration of herbs, diet and therapies in order to reduce excess unctuousness from the body. This is administered in conditions where there is excess Kapha Dosha, fat tissue, unctuousness / moisture in the body, low digestive fire and for persons who are accustomed to intake of fatty food and sedentary lifestyle.


External use – Udwartana, Kashayadhara

Oral use – Herbal decoctions, buttermilk processed with herbs


Deepana – Pachana (Appetizers and Digestives)


Ama should be digested and Agni functioning should be improved before administration of Snehapana because the fats administered during Snehapana will not undergo digestion properly if Agni is not in normal condition.


Snehapana (Internal oleation)


As a part of preparatory procedure for Vamana and Virechana, oral administration of medicated fats are administered. As the fats have subtle, mobile, unctuous, liquid, slimy, heavy, cold, stable and soft properties which are having opposite qualities of dryness, roughness, lightness, etc. hence bring the vitiated Doshas circulating in the extremities to the alimentary tract by causing excess increase of Doshas, their liquefaction, transformation and by controlling the Vata Dosha and cleaning the opening of the Srotas. Thus preparatory procedure are carried for 3, 5 or 7 days based on the body strength, Agni strength, age, intensity of vitiation of Doshas, etc. Signs of proper oleation include downward movement of flatus, enhanced digestion, unctuousness & softness of the body, unctuous and soft stools.


Abhyanga (Massage)


Oil massage with lukewarm medicated oils soften the toxins and localizes them.


Swedana (Fomentation)


Hot steam bath (Vashpa Swedana) or Kayaseka (Pouring of hot liquids on the body) liquifies the vitiated Doshas thereby helping them to be expelled out from the body easily through Vamana or Virechana. However too much steam is not recommended as it increases unctuousness and moisture in the body because of which their body might get shattered because of abundance of fat.


Vamana (Therapeutic emesis)


Therapeutic emesis using herbs such as Madanphala, Pippali, Nimba and infusion of liquorice is beneficial. As there is involvement of Kapha Dosha and Medas Dhatu primarily in the pathogenesis of Prameha, Vamana is useful as it brings balance of Kapha Dosha, Medas and Agni. Mainly, the subtle, hot and penetrating property of herbs used in Vamana karma liquifies excess Kapha and Medas and scraps out the toxins from the body.


Virechana (Therapeutic purgation)


Therapeutic purgation with herbs such as Aragvadha, Triphala, Haritakyadi churna, Trivrit Leha are beneficial. The hot potency of Virechana herbs increase the Agni thereby cause movement of Doshas into the alimentary tract from where they can be expelled out of the body. The penetrating property of Virechana herbs disintegrate the accumulation of Doshas. Because of subtle property and fast spreading nature of the Virechana herbs, the herbs spread quickly in the whole body before it gets digested. Also the Dhatus Dosha amalgamation is shattered causing expulsion of Doshas.


Samsarjana Krama (Post – Panchakarma procedures)


Samsarjana Krama are the diet and lifestyle precautions to be followed after Virechana. They help to protect and improve the functioning of Agni. As Agni becomes weak after Vamana or Virechana, because of the expulsion of the Doshas, specific diet and lifestyle is suggested for restoring the Agni strength. This is recommended for a period of 3, 5 or 7 days based on the outcome of Panchakarma and body strength.


Anuvasana Basti


As Anuvasana Basti has nourishing property, it is not recommended for patients suffering from Prameha. However when the Dosha & Dhatu balance is restored, it can be administered in order to keep Vata under control and to replenish the Dhatus.


Niruha Basti


As Niruha Basti is cleansing and produces dryness, it is beneficial in Prameha. Use of herbs having dryness, hot and penetrating properties is used in Niruha Basti. The scarifying property of these herbs helps to remove obstruction of Kapha, Medas and Kleda from the Srotas thereby regulating the normal functioning of Vata and Agni. Specially Lekhana / Karshana Basti is beneficial as the herbs used in this type of Basti have pungent, bitter and astringent tastes, light to digest, subtle and penetrating properties, hot potency. Pungent, bitter and astringent tastes decreases the unctuousness / moisture thereby corrects vitiation of Dhatus. Hot potency helps to reduce the Medas and Kapha. Also hot potency has Agni increasing and Ama removing property hence corrects the digestive and metabolic fire. Subtleness quality helps the herbs to reach the cells. Penetrating property helps to remove obstruction in the Srotas. Thus the function of Vata will be regulated, hence Vyana Vata will be able to transport the nutrients to all the Dhatus properly helping in proper formation and nourishment of the Dhatus.


Nasya Karma


As Nasya is indicated in diseases caused due to Kapha and Medas, specific type of Nasya namely Karshana Nasya using Triphaladi oil is beneficial to reduce symptoms such as excess sleep, lassitude, lethargy, etc.


Tailapana (Oral administration of oils)


There are four fats used for internal oleation, they are oil, ghee, muscle fat and bone marrow. As oils have fat reducing property, medicated oils such as oils of Tuvaraka and Bhallataka are beneficial in Prameha. Acharya Charaka says that sesame oil is the best among all the oils. Oil alleviates Vata but does not aggravate Kapha. When oil is processed with other herbs, it acquires the property of the herbs used for processing. It nourishes weak & emaciated persons and scraps out excess Kapha and fat from strong and obese persons. Due to its hot and penetrating property, it enters the minute channels (Sukshma Srotas) and scraps our excess Kapha and fat, hence the person loses weight. Whereas in weak and emaciated persons, the unctuous quality of oils imparts nourishment.

  • 100% Authentic Ayurveda Clinic.. Highly recommended for genuine ayurcedic treatments..

    Vishnu Datt Sharma- C.E.O

  • 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.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • 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.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

  • 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.

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
