Effect of diabetes on daily life and role of yogic activities on diabetes
AUTHOR(S): Upma Bhagat and Dr. Amarpreet Singh
Diabetes is a demanding disease, so it can affect life in many ways. Managing diabetes can be stressful. The way we feel when our blood glucose levels are low or really high adds to the stress. On top of that, there are the worries that we might develop complications, and the burden of dealing with any complications we may already have. It is no wonder that many people feel that diabetes affects their quality of life. Regular exercise patterns can be extremely beneficial to older patients with diabetes. In their case, the condition is partly due to lack of physical activity. A few minutes of brisk walking and joint movements, coupled with some gentle yoga postures – Triangle Pose, Standing Spinal Twist, and Butterfly Pose – followed by relaxation in yoga Nidra can help. Some specific Yogic activities to tackle diabetes better: Supta Matsyendrasana, Dhanurasana, Paschimottanasana, Ardhya Matsyendrasana, Shavasana, Kati chakra asana, Pawan mukat asana, Trikon asana, Vajar asana, Mandukasana, Gomukh asana, Ardha matsyendrasana & Shavasana Kriya: Neti, Om Chanting, Kapalbhati, Kunjal Kriya, Agnisara.
