Meditation is a way of relaxation and a path to enlightenment. If we dissolve our attachment with the outside world and bring our minds to rest, well-being, positivity and enlightenment (inner happiness) arise. All negativity vanishes. We think positively again and suddenly live in the light. We see the positive in the world, in our fellow human beings, and in ourselves. We are in harmony with ourselves and our lives. Here is the process for meditating with your inner voice.
- Control your weight. One of the most important things you can do if you have diabetes
is maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight, talk to a registered dietitian
about healthy ways to lose weight.
- Get regular physical activity. There is a significant body of research that proves
the myriad cardiovascular benefits of regular physical activity (that goes beyond
weight loss). Start off slowly, and build a plan that works well for you and meets
your needs. The Joslin Diabetes Center offers one-on-one consultations with clinical
exercise physiologists that are covered by many insurance providers. These sessions
are considered diabetes education—not training sessions—and can start you on the
path toward physical fitness.
- Don’t smoke. If you already do, make plans to begin a smoking cessation program.
"Nicotine narrows and restricts blood vessels; diabetes will also do the same thing
to your blood vessels.. You can't change having diabetes. But you can stop damage
caused by nicotine," says Dr. Ganda.
- Maintain tight control over glucose. Tight control can prevent many complications
from diabetes and also protects your heart. Shoot for an A1C reading of less than
- Lower your LDL cholesterol (the "bad" type). Both the American Diabetes Association
and the American Heart Association recommend an LDL cholesterol goal of less than
100 mg/dl. Dr. Ganda recommends eating fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables,
and whole grains. Also, he recommends asking your healthcare provider about omega-3
fish oil supplements.
- Psoriasis. Here’s the real heartbreak of psoriasis: It hikes the risk for heart
attacks, stroke, and peripheral artery disease (clogged vessels in the legs) as
much as smoking does. Blame inflammation, which triggers the dry scaly patches,
itching and burning of this chronic skin disorder. (Joints and organs can also be
affected.) Some studies suggest that aggressively treating psoriasis may trim CVD
- Vitamin D deficiency. Up to 50 percent of Americans have low levels of the sunshine
vitamin, doubling their risk for heart attack and stroke. A relaxing solution: Sit
in the sun and sip wine. The sun’s rays stimulate your body to produce vitamin D,
while a recent study reports that drinking two 6.8 ounce glasses of wine a day raises
women’s levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and lowers inflammatory markers. Men get
similar benefits at a slightly higher level of consumption.
Sub Topic 1: Prepare
Sit in your meditation seat (cross-legged, heel seat, chair, etc.) and in your meditation posture (hands on the legs or in the lap. Your hands can rest on both your knees if cross-legged, with the tips of the index finger and thumb of each hand touching).

Sub Topic 2: Use yoga as the model
Put your hands together in your lap. Visualize yourself as part of God's creation and encased in the light of Om. Move your toes a little and think or pronounce the mantra Om (sounds like Aum).

Sub Topic 3: Visualize
the cosmos around us, a universe full of stars. Make large circles with your arms and think: "I take things the way they are. I let go of my false desires. I live in the unity of the cosmos. I flow positive with my life." What do you want to accept or release today? Say: "I accept .... I let go ...".

Sub Topic 4: Connect with God
Rub your palms in front of the heart chakra. Connect with the God and think: "Om all enlightened masters (God). Om inner wisdom. I ask for guidance and help on my way."

Sub Topic 3: Work your sciatic nerve
The reflexes for the sciatic nerve are found just behind your ankle bone and continue up in a straight line for about 4" or 10 cm. Sciatica causes searing pain down the leg because the nerves are compressed, which can be triggered by a number of factors. Working the sciatic nerve reflex points will improve the blood supply to this area. Working the sciatic nerve reflexes every day for a few minutes is a great way to prevent a painful case of sciatica.
