According to yoga tradition, there are seven key points in the subtle body that are thought to be vortexes of energy, known as chakras. These 7 chakras are known to possess the great powers to improve your mind-body connection and they are something that must be activated in order to reap their benefits. It is very important to learn the 7 chakras in order to better understand your mind and body.
Dr. Pramod Tripathi in his day-10 session guide you on activation of the first chakra – the Root Chakra or Mooladhara. The Root Chakra is also known as foundational Chakra.
Insulin Resistance and Its Causes
Insulin is a hormone that is produced by pancreas, which allows cells to use glucose (sugar) as energy. People with insulin resistance have cells that don’t use insulin effectively, which means the cells have trouble absorbing glucose. The diminished ability of cells to respond to the action of insulin in transporting glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream into muscle and other tissues results in a build-up of glucose in the blood. As a result, the body needs higher levels of insulin to help glucose enter cells. The pancreas tries to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more. As long as it is able to produce enough insulin to overcome the insulin resistance, blood glucose levels stay in the healthy range.
How Can One Naturally Lower Their Blood Sugar Without Drugs?
Getting a regular Blood Sugar Test is one part of managing your diabetes successfully. Your blood sugar is tested both pre and post meal (i.e. before and after). This allows you to see how the meal affects your blood glucose levels and helps you to understand which meals may be best for your blood glucose control.
Type 2 Diabetes – Are You Experiencing Diabetes Burnout?
It is no secret Type 2 diabetes is quickly becoming the biggest epidemic of our time. If you have been diagnosed with this form of diabetes, how can you avoid becoming another statistic in the diabetes epidemic? If you have been recently diagnosed, then the talk of high blood sugar levels is still relatively new to you, even if the development of the condition took place over several years. If you were diagnosed many years ago, however, you are at a different stage, where you are likely encountering more difficulties than a newly diagnosed diabetic. High blood sugar levels can lead to crippling health issues, and this is well understood. But it is also frustrating because blood sugar levels can take more effort to manage than most people realize. You have to stay on top of them.
Type 2 Diabetes – Use Optimism to Help Lower Your Blood Sugar and Body Weight
If a “magic pill” cure for Type 2 diabetes existed, we would love to discuss it in-depth. But unfortunately, it doesn’t. The closest we can get to a cure is an intervention that would most likely involve drastic changes in the lifestyle of a person with Type 2 diabetes. But some people don’t want to hear about lifestyle changes and do not want to know about its existence. But good nutrition and moderate exercise are even more efficient in people age sixty and older than in younger people. The last thing you need however is a pessimistic approach.
Type 2 Diabetes – Persistent Organic Pollutants and Gestational Diabetes
In 2013 the Environmental Health Perspectives reported when all studies on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) were combined, the pollutants were linked to Type 2 diabetes. Could Gestational diabetes of diabetes of pregnancy have the same link? A study at Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran says the answer is “yes.” According to the journal Environmental Research POPs called Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCBs and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers or PBDEs had been found in the blood of women with first-time pregnancies and no health history or family history of diabetes. Seventy women who had been diagnosed with Gestational diabetes and 70 women without diabetes diagnosed during their pregnancy, donated blood for the research. The Gestational diabetes group of women had higher levels of both POPs, and the risk of Gestational diabetes was highest in the women with the highest level of POPs. From these results, the scientists concluded exposure to the POPs studied was linked with Gestational diabetes.
