How yoga can help fight diabetes
– The regular practice of yoga can help to reduce the level of sugar in the blood, along with lowering blood pressure, maintain weight control, reduce symptoms and decrease the rate of progression of diabetes, as well as decrease the severity of additional complications Let's see how.
– As for most lifestyle diseases, stress is one of the main reasons for diabetes. Increases the secretion of glucagon hormones in the body, responsible for the increase in blood glucose levels. The constant practice of yoga asanas (body postures), pranayamas (breathing exercises) and a few minutes of daily meditation can help reduce stress on the mind and body. This, in turn, reduces glucagons and may also help improve the action of insulin.
– It has also been proven that the practice of yoga reduces weight and controls weight gain, which is especially important to keep diabetes under control. The greeting to the sun and the pranayama Kapal Bhati are one of the best ways to lose weight.
– Diabetes can also get worse with the onset of high blood pressure or hypertension. Yoga asanas, such as the Pose of the corpse, the Bridge Pose, the Child's Pose and the Nidra of yoga are useful for controlling hypertension.
– Other yoga postures that are useful in diabetes include Vajrasana (kneeling posture), shoulder position, plow posture, lying body strain, arch posture, double-legged forward bend and mid-spinal twist sitting.
– Nadi Shodhan Pranayama is also good for diabetics. It helps to release stress and eliminate toxins from the body. Another excellent technique to combat diabetes is a unique breathing technique, Sudarshan Kriya, designed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. It has helped several diabetics around the world reduce blood glucose levels and control the worsening of their condition. You can learn the technique in an Art of Living Part-1 program.
– A few minutes of regular meditation practice also act as an excellent stress stimulant for the mind and body. Interestingly, while stress is the main cause of diabetes, the condition in turn makes patients feel very stressed, which further aggravates the problem. It has also been observed that most diabetics lose confidence in themselves and end up meditating on their condition. This is where meditation can help, restoring your levels of confidence so that they gain the strength to fight the disease and live well.
