If you have diabetes, it is quite likely that the high blood sugar is either due to low production of insulin in the body, or a lack of response from the cells of the body to the insulin produced. Diabetes can be classified as Type 1 or type 2 or it can even be gestational – occurring during pregnancy. Whatever the case, the earlier the condition is treated, the better it is for the individual. For this, yoga, pranayama, and meditation, along with good diet and lifestyle practices are tools that can help one manage his or her diabetes.
Stress is one of the major reasons for diabetes as is the case with most lifestyle related diseases. Stress increases the secretion of cortisol and glucagon hormones in the body, responsible for increasing blood glucose levels.
Regular practice of yoga Asanas (poses), Pranayamas (breathing exercises) and a few minutes of daily meditation can help reduce stress in the mind and body. This, in turn, not only reduce glucagon but can also help improve insulin response along with added benefits of lowering blood pressure, keeping a weight check, along reducing the symptoms and slowing the rate of progression of diabetes, as well as lessening the severity of further complications.

BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is a device that helps in improving microcirculation and promotes the blood flow in the smallest of our blood vessels. This improves the performance of the body’s cells, which in turn favors the body’s own self-healing powers. Blood circulation is the human body’s supply system. It supplies the tissues and organs with nutrients and oxygen while removing and disposing of resulting waste products. 75% of this process takes place in the smallest blood vessels – the so-called microcirculation.
We educated the audience on BEMER which enhances and supports general blood flow, cardiac function, physical fitness, endurance, strength, energy, concentration, mental acuity, stress reduction, relaxation, and sleep in just 16 minutes a day!
They also got to try the BEMER while listening to the presentation.
