ABSTRACT

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that is caused by unhealthy behaviour, habits and practises. Obstinate urinary disorders with increased urinary flow are grouped together as prameha in Ayurveda. Common symptom for all pramehas is that urine is increased in quantity and is altered in consistency. The need to develop more efficient drugs with minimum side effects and cost for the treatment of prameha is very necessary. Prameha is a disease which requires lifelong medication. In its chronic state, it may manifest many complications and sometimes compromise the quality of life of the patient. So along with controlling the disease, prevention of complication and improvement in the quality of life of the patient is equally important. Classical Ayurvedic treatment of prameha includes ahara, achara, vyayama, samana chikitsa (internal medication), sodhana chikitsa (purification processes) and rasayana (rejuvenation) therapy. Rasasastra (Ayurvedic Chemistry) has been successful from very early times in using various formulations in preventing or treating prameha. Some of the important formulations that can be used for treating prameha in Rasasastra are Yashada bhasma, Swarna makshika bhasma, Shilajatu prayoga, Vanga bhasma etc. In the present work we are discussing about the role of these formulations in the management of prameha. The aim of this work is to provide a general outline about diabetes and its management by following the principles of Ayurveda.

Keywords: Diabetes is a lifestyle Yashada bhasma, Swarna makshika bhasma, Ayurveda.
