Yoga is considered to be a promising, cost-effective option in the treatment and prevention of diabetes, with data from several studies suggesting that yoga and other mind-body therapies can reduce stress-related hyperglycemia and have a positive effect on blood glucose control.

Controlling mental stress (stress management) is one of the keys of diabetes treatment. When we’re stressed, our blood sugar levels increase and elevated blood sugar levels increase the chances of serious complications such as heart disease.

Using controlled breathing techniques, meditation and body postures, yoga and other mindfulness-based programmes train participants to invoke a relaxation response.

This response helps regulate cortisol and other stress hormones, which increases blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Both play a big role in the development of type 2 diabetes and related complications.

Yoga can also treat diabetes, or in the case of type 2 diabetes, prevent the disease from developing by:

Rejuvenating pancreatic cells - Yoga postures that aid relaxation (asanas) stretch the pancreas, which can stimulate the production of insulin-producing beta cells.

Exercising the muscles - Like other forms of exercise, yoga increases glucose uptake by muscular cells, which in turn, helps to lower blood sugar levels, improve circulation and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Promoting weight loss - Exercising through yoga can reduce weight and improve weight control, both of which are essential for protecting against conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease, as well as diabetes management.

Improving your mental attitude - Regular yoga practice can help to focus the mind and create the right mental approach to dealing with diabetes.

Before starting any yoga classes, you should consult with your doctor and diabetes healthcare team and continue with your conventional diabetes care plan
