Holistic Management of Diabetes
Why do so many people around the world practice yoga?
When I started Yoga for the first time I didn’t experience anything just tired, sore muscles.
Next day I exercised 30 min and I liked it. It opened something inside of me.
The most important is the connection of mind and body. How to start yoga if you never exercised before? If you can afford to sign up for the classes or go to the place to learn on 1:1, in this case you learn how to do correct poses, avoiding injury.
Breathing is one of the most important parts of yoga. You will be surprised how you can transform your body.
Diabetes is a chronic disease affecting physically, emotionally and spiritually. Traditional medicine treats symptoms, but holistic medicine heals the whole system. I’d like to share my experience and open the door for healthier and happy life!!!
Do we like massage? YES, ABSOLUTELY. Holistic is big, it includes many options which you can try to make yourself happy and healthy. You live with diabetes 24 hours x 7 days a week. You never can take a break from it. We talk so much about vacation from diabetes. Many books and web sites trying to describe how you can cope with diabetes. What about one day you will go for massage or session of Reiki.
Aromatherapy was used for centuries. Not much information is available at this time to say what kind of oils can help with blood sugar control? Diabetes is not only affecting metabolism of carbohydrates (sugar) it affects the whole body. This is why you can add simple and easy therapy to treat yourself.
Can a dog detect hypoglycemia and help cope with diabetes?
Two years ago I was reading an article by Whalen Jill “Dog could help girl cope with diabetes”, it touched my heart, brought memories to the time when I was a kid.
This article is about a little girl and special trained dog who could recognize hypoglycemia. I was searching libraries, websites and articles and found out this is true.
Special trained dogs exist. They can recognize low blood sugar. What is the most important is to help kid cope with diabetes and make family stronger and united. I was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
My mom and dad were not sleeping at night to be sure to wake me up to check blood sugar. Coping skills is one of the most important and difficult parts of diabetic care. What can you say to this girl who is only 3 years old who said “I don’t want diabetes anymore”. Minimed released a new version of sensor called mySentry which monitors blood sugar wirelessly. It means you can keep monitor at your bedside and your child can sleep in another room. Personally, I’d like to choose a special trained dog.
I got this little guy for my parents (yorkie terrier), when I brought to my mom he was only 2 month old. Now he is the best buddy for my mom and dad. In several months my dad decreased his blood pressure medication and the same with my mom.
The most important he makes them HAPPY. I don’t know WHY? But when you see him you are starting to smile.You will walk up to 30-
Many studies show a dog decreases stress, blood pressure and makes you happy. I’m not sure if I can train this guy on pictures, he is spoiled, but he does make you smile and happy.
If you can own such cute companion do it. You will never regret. In near future I’m planning fundraiser to donate special trained dog to the family who has a child with diabetes.
You run to local pharmacy to buy vitamin C and drink hot tea with lemon. Supplements are safe to use for a person with diabetes under guidance of the professional. It can be a naturopath or your physician. Never rely or add supplements based on information posted on websites without discussing with your medical team.
We are all looking for more healthy and natural way to manage our health. We have more stores which sale organic food, supplements, but every time when I’m visiting organic department I become overwhelmed and confused, what to choose is it really good staff for me? Welcome to supplements’ world
Our society starts to turn back slowly to more healthy way of managing and curing diseases. Diabetes is a chronic progressive disease, it hard to accept but because diabetes can turn so quick in complication, your goal is to keep blood sugar as normal as possible. Do I need to take fish oil, or vitamin D3 or other supplements? If yes, what brand and how much?
What is meditation? Meditation is opposite from stress :)
My definition of meditation. When you meditate, you give a break for your mind to relax and allow to stay in reality, not dreaming or be in phantasy stage.
I will provide with most easy technique which will help you stop spinning your mind around and be present.
I’ll also review all the devices (light and sound machines) to provide meditation, relaxation and much more.
Technology is great and it allows you in no time to do meditation.
Benefits of meditation:
Decrease blood pressure
Boost immune system
Improve performance and much more
