REFLEXOLOGY & DIABETES
Reflexology in Vernon is a great complementary treatment for diabetes.
There are 2 types of diabetes. The first is your body’s inability to produce insulin, and the second and more common type is the body’s inability to properly use the insulin that is being produced.
Insulin is a hormone that your pancreas produces to help regulate blood sugar levels, and it also helps your body use sugar for energy. Having a high blood sugar level starts to wreak havoc on your organs, blood vessels, and nerves.
Why Reflexology Can Be A Great Complimentary Treatment for Diabetes
- Reflexology improves circulation by bringing an oxygen-rich blood supply to all aspects of the body. In turn, the venous flow is also improved, helping with the detoxification of the body. This improved circulation helps repair the cells of the body, including nerve cells that may have been damaged due to high blood sugar levels.
- Reflexology releases stress and tension. By improving the blood flow and oxygenation level of the cells, the muscles and tissues relax and release unnecessary stress. When there is less general stress and tension, the body is more able to release energy. This allows for a better work environment for all systems of the body.
- Reflexology promotes homeostasis (balance) by systematically stimulating each of the organs through the Peripheral Nervous System. Reflexology helps balance the production and release of hormones and improves the function of overactive/underactive organs. This specifically aids the pancreas in producing and releasing the right amount of insulin for regulating the blood sugar level.
Although Reflexology is recommended for diabetics or those prone to disease, it is always beneficial to maintain a healthy lifestyle by limiting sugar intake, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, reducing external stress, and maintaining a healthy weight.
