Madhumeha is the most common lifestyle & stress induced disorder witnessed by the population. When a walking person prefers to stand, standing person prefers to sit, sitting person prefers to lie down & falls asleep starts dreaming, such preference of lifestyle is the typical feature of a person with Madhumeha as mentioned by Acharya Sushruta. It is a type of vimshati pramehas- mainly caused due to aasyasukham, swapnasukham, avyayama, alasya – improper regimen Swasthyarakshana being primitive aim in ayurveda, “dinacharya”, “sadvritta” - daily regimen is discussed in detail to maintain physical, mental, social, emotional & spiritual wellbeing. Right from waking up in kapha pradhana kala, leading to improper bowel evacuation, further accumulation of mala in koshta, danta & romakupa. Dosha accumulation leads to an unpleasant state of mind - constant thinking- stress. Kapha and medas are main dosha and dushya in prameha. Often neglected aspects like Danta dhavana with tikta rasa dravya, applying Rasanjana, Navana, Gandusha, Dhumapana, Tambulasevana – main effect is urdhwakaya and indriya shodhana , hence sleshma doesn’t attain dravtva. Abhyanga or Udwartana, Vyayama & Snana does agni deepana, medovilapana. Dinacharya results in vikaravighata bhava .The most important thing for a person with madhumeha is nidana parivarjana; regulating body and mind thus affecting the dosha dushya sammurchana. Vyayama is essential to combat madhumeha. Oushadhayukta ahara easily reaches target site with increased efficacy.
