Specific Yoga postures for diabetes
Diabetes is yet another very common disease faced by people today. Contrary to popular belief this disease can hit anyone irrespective of age and is also passed down as a hereditary disease. If it gets too contagious, diabetes can also end a life. Diabetes is a condition where the body does not produce as much insulin as required and even if it does, fails to put it to proper use. Common causes of this problem are obesity, unhealthy lifestyle, stress and genetic problems.
Diabetes can be either pancreatic or it can be gestational and the symptoms of diabetes are excessive urination, being thirsty too often or even excessive hunger can be a potent symptom. Pancreatic diabetes is when no insulin is produced in the body and this disease is too crucial to be treated by yoga. However gestational diabetes is something that is caused by lifestyle and stress and hence yoga comes as a great way to counter this disease.
There is hardly a disease or a problem that cannot be cured by Ramdev Baba’s yoga techniques. Some of his poses and asanas that help to control diabetes are sun salutation or the suryanamaskar. This helps in increasing the flow of blood to the various parts of the body and also making the insulin work better for the well-being of the body.
Several asanas like dhanurasana, ardhamatsyendrasana, sarvangasana, halasana, vjarasana, pavanmuktasanaetc are extremely helpful in the control of diabetes. The basis of practicing asanas is to sit in one comfortable position and be stable. Once this is achieved there are various stretches and twists that are performed. These stretches and twists helps in the stretching of the organs and this in turn helps to inject fresh blood and oxygen to all parts of the body. These asanas also have very positive effect on the pancreas and working of insulin.
Similarly there are also many pranayamas advocated by Ramdev Baba for diabetic patients. Pranayamas like the nadhisodhana, bhramari and bhasrika pranayama are very effective for controlling diabetes.
There are however, certain dos and don’ts for diabetic patients practicing yoga:
- First of all the patient must understand that his efforts will only be helpful if they are holistic, he has to maintain a healthy life physically, emotionally and mentally both at home and at work
- Do not overdo it. Start with simple steps and let your body get used to the routine before you start with the more strenuous ones.
