3 Yoga Moves To Beat Diabetes

Diabetes is not only a dangerous disease, but it's also expensive to manage. The good news is that yoga experts have identified some yoga moves that can be used to manage the condition. Here are some of the beneficial moves:
In addition to helping you to beat diabetes, this move also aids in helping you to breathe deeply so that you can oxygenate your blood and improve blood circulation.
To assume the pose you need to sit on a yoga mat in a cross legged position. While sitting, you should ensure that your back is straight and your chin is parallel to the floor.
You should then place your hands on your knees with the palms facing upwards then close your eyes and start breathing deeply. Once you are done, you should rub your palms together until they are warm and then place them on your eyes. You should then open your eyes and smile.
Other than keeping your blood sugars in check, this pose also aids in keeping your blood pressure in control. The move also aids in relaxing your mind, improving your digestion, and stretching the neck and spine.
To assume the pose you need to lie on a yoga mat with your feet flat on the floor. Pushing up off the floor with your feet, you should raise your body until your neck and head are flat on the mat while the rest of the body is in the air. You should hold in this position until tension starts to build.
While this move is very beneficial, you should avoid doing it if you have back or neck injury.
Widely known as the child's pose, this move not only aids in beating diabetes, but it also aids in relieving stress. The move also aids in stretching the hips, thighs and ankles. Research has shown that the move also aids in relieving fatigue.
To assume the move you need to sit on the floor with your weight on your knees. Flattening your feet, you should sit on your heels and spread your legs a little then bend forward from your waist.
You should let your stomach rest on your thighs and elongate your back by stretching out your arms. You should then rest your forehead on the floor and hold in this position for as long as three minutes.
Experts say that you should avoid this pose if you have diarrhea or if you are pregnant.
