YOGA FOR DIABETES-PART 2

In the previous article we understood how and why a disease manifests in the body and how one can cure it. The Arurvedic remedy for diabetes was detailed, that needs to be taken every day along with certain yogic asans that will help control the rising sugar levels in the body. A combination of Ayurveda, Asans and Mantra chanting will have an immediate effect on controlling diabetes.

ASAN

It is important that the breath rate and heart rate do not shoot up while performing asans. But since these are repetitive asans, there is a possibility of a slight increase in the breath rate while performing them. Therefore it is vital to perform them in tandem with Sanatan Kriya to balance out or decrease the number of breaths taken overall. It is advised you learn the practices at a Dhyan Foundation centre near you.



·        VEERBHADRA ASAN – Stand straight. As you inhale, slowly bend forward keeping your spine straight. Touch both hands on the ground and raise your left leg up so it remains parallel to the ground as you balance the body on the right leg. Gently exhale and bring the leg down. Repeat this 7 times.

·        NATRAJ ASAN – Inhaling, bend your left knee backwards and lift the left leg behind you and raise your right arm up while you look upwards. Support the left ankle with left hand. As you exhale bring your hand and foot down. Repeat 7 times.

·        UDYAN & JALANDHAR BANDH – Stand straight, inhale and expand your stomach as much as possible, then exhale from your mouth emptying the stomach and the lungs as much as possible. The area below the rib cage has to be pulled inwards but only enough so it does not cause any discomfort or trauma. Do a chin lock, Jalandhar Bandh, your chin touching the chest as you look down. Exhale while the abdomen is pulled inside. Gradually release the abdominal lock then the chin lock.

Caution – Kapal Bhati pranayam should be avoided completely as it causes hyperactivity and is not advised for diabetes.

MANTRA TO STRENGTHEN THE MANIPOORAK

Along with the asans it’s important to strengthen the Manipoorak chakra (navel), as diabetes is caused due to an imbalance in the Manipoorak chakra.

The Beej mantra of Manipoorak chakra is RAM. Sit in Sukhasan or Vajrasan. Place both palms on the navel, one on top of the other, and chant ram. To hear the correct uccharan of the mantra, visit www.dhyanfoundation.com. This mantra activates the Manipoorak chakra.

YOGA FOR KIDNEY STONES

There are two bean shaped organs in the body, one to the left and the other to the right in the pelvic region, and their function is filtration of the fluids of the body. The residue after filtration is then expelled from the body as urine. I am referring to the kidneys. Kidneys assume greater significance in our lives, given that are body is 60-70% water. And this water needs to be regulated constantly.
The kidneys are so fine an organ that they remove all the solids from the water. Certain solids which are heavy and cannot be expelled completely, get calcified. This leads to kidney stones. When the kidney stones grow in size, they block the top of the kidney or are pushed into the urethra thereby blocking it. Early symptoms are pain. And this pain need not be limited to the lower back area, and may even be experienced in the lower chest area.  This is because when the kidneys gasp for prana, they can put pressure on any nerve in the body. Another symptom is weight gain. When kidneys …

SHED YOUR COLONIAL MINDSET OVER COWS

The British punctured our roots, killed cows and poisoned our minds, and left behind generations of ‘brown Englishmen’, writes Yogi Ashwini Macaulay in his infamous ‘Minute’ in 1835 changed the course of how Bharat (or India as we call it now) would be perceived by its countrymen. He planned to uproot the Indian culture through English education. He advocated education for a selected class and wanted to create eminent clerks to serve the lower cadres in British administration, “Brown Englishmen”. The fact that most of us find it perfectly normal to address him, who ravaged our culture, as “Lord” Macaulay and find the idea of cow, which nourishes us, being our mother or goddess absurd, is a direct indicator of the fact that Macaulay succeeded in brainwashing us. A brainwash to the extent that no matter what we write here or whatever stats we share, the Brown Englishmen, even if they make it through the end of this article, would still not find anything wrong in killing cows or eating bee…

Yoga for Eyes and Ears

Yoga was conceived millennia ago; it is a science which has stood the test of time, survived invasions from races across the globe. Yoga has survived because it is shashwat (eternal), what it was, it will remain. Invaders and plunderers can destroy all the records, but they cannot destroy Yoga for it is a blessing straight from the Creator. The gyan of Yoga is handed down from the Guru to the shishya, the reason its theories are being rediscovered by modern scientists. As per Yoga, it is possible to maintain vision in the eyes along with good hearing abilities till the last. We have occipital lobes at the back and temporal lobes in the front of our brain, sides of the brain, right behind the temples. These two are directly connected to the sight and hearing abilities. Actually when you hear, it is not the eardrum that is resonating, it’s the lobe and when you are seeing, it is not the retina, but the lobe which is responsible for the vision. If your lobes are healthy, then the hearing …
