A Guided Meditation To Help You Manage Diabetes CD
Lower your blood sugar naturally with this evidence-based, stress-vanquishing guided meditation, designed to target either Type 1 or 2 diabetes. It was distributed at the annual meeting of The American Association of Diabetes Educators.
Let this calming, physiologically accurate guided imagery help you envision a steady flow of strength and energy, due to improved access to insulin and a heightened ability to absorb nutrients from the bloodstream. There is also help for quickly and easily reducing stress, a known cortisol and blood glucose elevator, and the depression that often accompanies high blood sugar. A second track offers brief affirmations you can listen to while you're on the go.
We developed this meditation in consultation with diabetes educators, endocrinologists, psychologists, and other health and wellness professionals, drawing on research showing that meditation consistently helps reduce blood cortisol, blood glucose, and hemoglobin Alc. Professionals have been recommending it for years as an essential part of the diabetes care toolkit. Check your blood sugar before and after listening and you’ll understand why!
It's written and narrated by mind-body pioneer Belleruth Naparstek, with music by Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax. (48 minutes)
