Would you like to have insulin injections all your life? No one would. Hence, you should alter your lifestyle in such a way that you stimulate your body to produce natural insulin. Changes to your lifestyle can also help in reducing the insulin resistance thereby helping in the treatment of Type-2 diabetes. Let us look at some simple dos and don’ts to manage diabetes in Ayurvedic lifestyle.
Naturally, one should begin on a positive note. Let us concentrate on what you should do to manage diabetes.
It is advisable to eat only as much as your body needs. Overeating can unnecessarily build up the blood glucose levels. We have a tough time managing the existing food. Should we make it harder for our body by overeating? Carbohydrates convert into sugar. You need sugar for energy, but diabetes mellitus patients develop resistance to insulin thereby releasing the consumed sugar into the blood and thus spiking blood sugar levels. Have a healthy diet with lots of fibrous fruits and other food, low in fat content. Whole grains, vegetables, and fruits should form essential ingredients of your diet.
Be active. A sedentary lifestyle can increase accumulation of fat in our bodies thereby bringing about an imbalance in the Doshas. Exercise regularly and ensure that you remain fit and healthy. Yoga is very good for relieving stress symptoms. Some of the asanas can also help the body in producing natural insulin thereby providing great relief to diabetic patients.
Maintaining your blood sugar level is important. You need to go for regular check-ups to ensure proper levels of blood sugar. This can also help you in guarding against the development of heart diseases and nerve damage.
We have seen three dos and don’ts that every diabetic patient should strictly adhere to in Ayurvedic lifestyle.
