A note about Using Yoga for Diabetes
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
Insulin is a hormone that is required to metabolize sugar to glucose and is produced by the beta cells of islets of langerhans, situated in the pancreas.
Insulin also moderates the entry of glucose into blood cells to provide energy for work.
In the diseased condition called diabetes, cells do not receive fuel for cell building, but excess glucose remains in circulation, resulting in an imbalance that leads to illness.
Yoga for diabetes
Some studies have shown that following a regular, disciplined regimen of yoga reduces blood sugar levels, blood pressure, obesity, and eliminates diabetes related complications.
Since the effects are therapeutic as well as prophylactic, yoga reduces diabetes related hospital admissions as well as the symptoms related to diabetes.
