Prameha upadravas {Complications of Prameha}

Doshas which are involved in pathogenesis of the disease. This may further complicate
the problem and must be considered in the management of the original disease, that is called
upadrava. Individual suffering from prameha usually seeks to doctor’s help when the
complications have developed. Fatigue, excessive thirst and excessive urination are some of the
symptoms for which the diseased person approaches physician. Susrutha has described
prameha complications according to dosha pridominance. Briha Thrayees have described
prameha pidaka as a major complication of prameha. Sussrutha has mentioned
“Malabandhata” (constipation) as a commonly observed complication as the body of the
diseased person is loaded with meda hence they do not respond to common purgatives in usual
doses. Modern Physiological theories attribute this complication to the involvement of
autonomous nervous system.
The following symptoms under each category of kaphaja, pithaja and vathaja describes
the dominant element in each diabetic patient. Doshas which are involved in the pathogenesis of
the disease may further complicate the problem and must be critically considered in the
management of the original disease. This element in the treatment is called upadrava. In most 5
cases it is only after the complication have developed, individuals suffering form prameha seek a
physician’s advise.
Sustrutha notes that Dosha predominance is a primary factor in prameha complication.
Susrutha documents that ‘malabandhata’(constipation) is a complication of this disease, because
the individual has a concentration of meda. The average doses of laxatives are not effective in
these cases.
Brihathrayees (Susrutha is one of the Brihathrayee writers) have described prameha as
pidika (diabetic carbuncle) as a major complication of prameha.

Ayurvedic Concept of Diabetes mellitus

It can be said in a way that the Ayurvedic remedies for diabetes mellitus are the oldest among all the available therapies. The approach of Ayurveda towards diabetes mellitus is that, diabetes mellitus is a disease caused due to doshic imbalances. The doshas are the three humors that govern the human body. These are the vata dosha, pitta dosha and kapha dosha. These three humors must be present in a proper balance within the body in order to keep the body in the normal state of its functioning. If even one of the doshas is vitiated, then it can lead to diseases, and diabetes mellitus is one of them.

Ayurveda includes diabetes mellitus in the prameha category. Pramehas are a list of urinary disorders, especially characterized by profuse urination with several abnormal qualities. There are twenty kinds of pramehas in Ayurveda. According to the doshic causes, these pramehas are classified as follows:

Vataja pramehas – There are totally four vataja pramehas. Pittaja pramehas – There are totally six pittaja pramehas. Kaphaja pramehas – There are totally ten kaphaja pramehas.

Diabetes mellitus is a condition that is extremely serious from both clinical and public health standpoints. The traditional healthcare system of India, Ayurveda, offers a balanced and holistic multi-modality approach to treating this disorder. Many Ayurvedic modalities have been subjected to empirical scientific evaluation, but most such research has been done in India, receiving little attention in North America. This paper offers a review of the English language literature related to Ayurveda and diabetes care, encompassing herbs, diet, yoda , and meditation as modalities that are accessible and acceptable to Western clinicains and patients. There is a considerable amount of data from both animal and human trials suggesting efficacy of Ayurvedic interventions in managing diabetes. However, the reported human trials generally fall short of contemporary methodological standards. More research is needed in the area of Ayurvedic  treatement of diabetes, assessing both whole practice and individual modalities.

Ayurveda, considered to be the oldest system of medicine in the world, had its origin in India about five thousand years ago. A holistic method of healing using remedies offered by nature, Ayurveda which when followed can restore, rejuvenate and revitalize body, mind and soul.

Mention of Ayurveda can be found in the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavat Gita and other ancient texts of wisdom. Of the four Vedas, namely Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Adharva Veda, Ayurveda is said to be the Upaveda or the sub branch of Adharva Veda.

The word Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words: 'Ayu' which means ‘life’ and 'Veda' which means ‘the knowledge of’. According to Charaka, "ayu" consists of four essential parts- mind, body, senses and the soul. In short, Ayurveda is the knowledge of life.

what ayurveda says about diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus has gained immense notoriety in recent times as it is fast becoming the world’s largest silent killer. Despite the thousands of people dying worldwide each year due to diabetes mellitus, it is very unfortunate that no proper cure for the disease has been discovered yet. The problem with diabetes mellitus is that it is very difficult to diagnose in the early stages. However, a person sticking to an Ayurvedic preventive strategy right from the beginning, can easily prevent this disease or control it if already suffering.

What is Diabetes mellitus?

Diabetes mellitus is the medical condition in which there is an accumulation of glucose in the urine and blood of the person. This condition is known as hyperglycemia. The word diabetes has been derived from two Greek words, diabetes which means ‘siphon’ and mellitus which means ‘sweet’. Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder, i.e. it is caused due to the malfunctioning of the pancreas, which is responsible for the production of the hormone insulin.

Diabetes mellitus has been largely considered to be a dietary dietary diseas that affects only richer men, but that is actually very far from the truth. First and foremost, diabetes mellitus is not a dietary disease and secondly, it can affect just about anyone. Hence, it is very necessary to educate oneself about diabetes mellitus in order to arrive at a proper preventive therapy for it.

 Ayurvedic Health Tips


Nowadays many people find it difficult to switch off in the evening and enjoy a good, deep sleep.The Ayurvedic texts give the following recommendations for people who have difficulty in sleeping.Regular oil massages; occupying oneself with pleasant and uplifting things; warm baths; light food in the evening (e.g. soups) and not taken too late; use of aroma oils; listening to relaxing and pleasing music; a comfortable bed and a pleasant atmosphere in the bedroom. Ayurveda recommends going to bed before ten o'clock: Each time of day has a different "quality". From 6 to 10 in the evening Kabha dosha is predominant, which facilitates failing asleep. From 10 o'clock onwards is Pitta time, when mental experiences should be being processed during sleep. If instead one remains awake, it is a common experience that the tiredness gradually disappears and one is then unable to fall asleep till well past midnight.
Recipes for Lassi

Lassi is an Ayurvedic yoghurt drink, which not only tastes wonderful but also helps digestion and balances all the doshas. Yogurt and lassi are not considered the same thing in Maharishi Ayurveda. Lassi is best taken after lunch or late afternoon rather than evening.
Basic recipe for making lassi: Blend thoroughly one part fresh, set yoghurt with 2-4 parts water, preferably using a mixer or a whisk). The flavours may be varied to suit your taste and the season. Try cooling rose or coconut, and cardamom with a little sugar in summer, and warming almond or salt in winter.
Rose lassi: Before mixing, add a few drops of rosewater, and sweeten if desired (rosewater can be obtained in delicatessen and chemist shops).
Almond Energy lassi: Before mixing, add 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of "Almond Energy" powder.
Coconut lassi: Add a dash of coconut milk or coconut puree, and cane sugar if desired. An added refinement could be to add a pinch of vanilla and cardamom.
Digestive lassi (helpful for gas problems): Add some rock salt, ground cumin, and two pinches of cumin, half a tsp of fresh coriander chopped. According to Ayurveda, salt lassi is particularly good for the digestion.
Also try lassi with vanilla, cardamom or cinnamon.

Ayurvedic Health Tips

Daily Oil Massage

One of the most enjoyable things you can do for your body and health is to have a full-body oil massage in the morning before your bath or shower. An oil massage has a soothing effect on the nervous system (vata), strengthens the circulation, and helps to remove toxins from the body. The Ayurvedic texts explain that the use of oil massage brings about a soft, flexible, strong and attractive body. It is extremely beneficial for the skin and should therefore be done regularly.

Guidelines for oil massage

Allow about 15 minutes, in the morning. The massage can be done either standing up or sitting down, in a comfortably warm room. Ideally the oil should be heated beforehand to a little above body temperature. Massage slowly and evenly, using the whole hand. By the end of the massage, a thin film of oil should cover the whole body.

Start by massaging the head region, with small circular movements. Then do the neck, throat, shoulders, arms and hands. Massage the limbs with long straight strokes up and down; for the joints use circular movements. The chest and stomach area should be massaged very gently. Use circular strokes on the chest, straight up-and-down strokes over the breastbone and solar plexus. For the abdomen use a slow, circular, clockwise movement. Massage the back and the base of spine up and down with the flat of the hands - as far as you can comfortably reach. The legs are done in the same manner as the arms: circular movements on the joints, straight strokes on the limbs. Finally, massage the feet and the soles of the feet. Best results are achieved if you leave the oil on for 15 minutes at least, before taking a bath or a shower, so that the body has time to absorb the oil. If you are short of time, then massage only the head, ears and soles of the feet.

 Health Tips From Ayurveda
Drinking Hot Water

Drinking hot water regularly is a classical Ayurvedic recommendation for balancing Vata and Kabha dosha, strengthening digestive power, and reducing metabolic waste (Ama) that may have accumulated. Boil a sufficient amount of unchlorinated tap water or (still) mineral water in an open saucepan, for at least ten minutes. Keep this water in a thermos flask and take a few sips (or more, if you are thirsty) every half-hour throughout the day. It is the frequency rather than the quantity that is important here. To increase the positive effect you can add 1-2 slices of fresh ginger (or a pinch of ginger powder) to the water when boiling it.
Exercising for Good Health

Exercise is an important part of Maharishi Ayurveda but as with many good things in life, there is a limit to the amount of exercise that should be taken, and if one goes beyond this, the results will be negative rather than positive.

    Do not strain the body in your daily exercise. Remain within 50% of your capacity When you begin to breathe heavily or perspire a lot, then you should stop or slow down.
    Regularity is the key to success. A quarter of an hour each day is better than five hours once a week.
    Do your exercise preferably in the mornings between 6 and 10 o'clock.
    Follow a healthy diet, and support mind and body with Ayurvedic food supplements.
    Observe the important relaxation and regeneration phase after exercise.
    Practise Yoga Asanas regularly.
