The present study is designed to assess the efficacy of Virechana, one of the detoxification treatment procedures of Ayurveda followed by administration of oral herbal medicine in Sthula Madhumeha with special reference to Noninsulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM). The prevalence of the disease Diabetes Mellitus is increasing all over the world. Shodana (Detoxification procedure) followed by shaman (Oral medication) is the treatment measure for Sthula Madhumeha as explained in Ayurvedic text books. Thus the present study was undertaken to assess the effective management from classical Ayurvedic point of view i.e., Virechana followed by Nygrodadi Churna in the management of Sthula Madhumeha. The screening of the patients between the age group of 30 to50 years was done randomly and finally 30 patients who fulfilled all necessary criteria were registered for the study after taking a written consent for the clinical test. The registered patients were assessed for both subjective and biochemical parameters before and after treatment schedule. The study showed significant reduction in blood sugar level (P0.001, ANOVA) after the treatment.
