Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either due to inadequate insulin production, or due to the irresponsive behavior of the body’s cells to insulin or both. Patients with diabetes generally suffer from polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst), polyphagia (increased hunger), fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, numbness and tingling in hands and feet. It is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels.
In 2013, it was estimated that over 382 million people across the world had diabetes (Williams textbook of endocrinology). There are two reasons why diabetes occur: either because the body does not produce insulin (Approx. 10% of patients) or the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function (Approx. 90% of patients)
As the risk of cardiovascular disease is much higher for a diabetic, it is crucial that blood pressure and cholesterol levels are monitored regularly.
Control and cure diabetes through Nitaai Breathing
Deep corrective breathing exercise called Nitaai Breathing has a significant ability to control and cure diabetes. Cardiologists Robert Schneider, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.B.M.R., and César Molina, M.D., F.A.C.C. studied the effects of deep breathing exercise and meditation on Type 2 diabetes patients. Their research shows that corrective deep breathing and meditation lowers insulin response during the initial stages of the disease.
Cortisol, adrenaline and non-adrenalin – the stress hormones – affect insulin and glucose levels in the blood and since corrective deep breathing (Nitaai Breathing) lowers stress and helps in metabolism, so the insulin and glucose levels get re-balanced. Cortisol level management is crucial in order to treat diabetes and as per the research, Nitaai Breathing is a beneficial treatment for cortisol management.
Nitaai Breathing treats stress and regulates sleep abnormalities. The pancreas which is responsible for insulin production has a chance to repair damage since healing takes place during sleep or during the deep relaxing process of Nitaai Breathing. Diabetes is aggravated by stress and cured by relaxation. The benefits of Nitaai Breathing are phenomenal and instant.
Nitaai Breathing gives rise to centeredness and mindfulness that helps people put things in perspective and be less prone to anxiety or other effects of stress. Deep corrective breathing i.e. Nitaai Breathing, is an excellent enhancement to medical treatment of diabetes and other diseases. It can help lessen the severity if it’s already full-blown, and prevent worsening of the situation.
