Yoga great for diabetes!
A number of studies show that if you have diabetes, yoga can benefit you in several ways. Yoga can help lower body fat, fight insulin resistance, and improve nerve function — all important when you have type 2 diabetes. Like tai chi, yoga is also a great diabetic stress reducer. “When stress levels go higher, so do your blood sugar levels,” says Colberg-Ochs. One of the advantages of yoga as an exercise is that you can do it as often as you like. “The more the better,” she says. Curtesy of healthyliving.com
