Among the health challenges, management of diabetes is very important. This is on account of the decrease in the age of incidence, high prevalence and systemic complications that reduce the quality of life of patients. The age-standardised DALY rate was highest among major non-communicable diseases for diabetes, which is increased in India by 39ยท6% from 1990 to 2016. Furthermore, conservative management through modern medicine has produced many adverse effects along with invariable systemic complications. Personalised Prakriti-based medicine is an essential part of Ayurveda as compared to modern medicine, which advocates disease specific management irrespective of personal factors. This personalised Prakriti specific management offered by Ayurveda will play a vital role in changing global health. It offers a holistic package of modalities encompassing diet, lifestyle, and medication. Prakriti-based herbs are likely to offer remedies for health issues like adverse drug reactions, drug withdrawals, and economic disparities. Hence, a review study on personalised Prakriti specific herbal tea for Diabetes mellitus (Madhumeha) throws light on the various herbs along with their mode of action, which can be a very effective remedy.
