Among other topics, the website discusses how the Total Heart Health Program helps to control diabetes.


How the Total Heart Health Program Helps to Control Diabetes and Reduce the Risk of Heart Attacks

Diabetes is a blood disease resulting from the body's lost connection with its inner intelligence, as with other risk factors for heart disease. This lost connection results in a specific mind/body imbalance, which in certain individuals, may lead to diabetes. People become pre-disposed to diabetes through various dietary and hereditary factors related to mind, body and environment.

Imbalance begins on the most subtle and basic level of the principles governing all the activities and processes of your body. In Maharishi Ayur-Veda, these principles are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vata is the principle of movement, Pitta is the principle of transformation or heat, and Kapha is the principle of structure. If it continues over time, an imbalance at this basic level of your body eventually manifests as disease. Kapha is the primary type of imbalance associated with diabetes.

Total Heart Health's Ayurvedic Recommendations for Diabetes:

The Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health offers changes to diet and daily routine, to reduce excess Kapha—the primary imbalance leading to excessively high blood sugar. These changes also increase the body's production of Ojas, an essential body essence in Ayurveda. More Ojas increases the body's intelligence. This helps with proper metabolism and organ functioning—for example, in the pancreas and the liver, which are involved in regulating blood chemistry.

Below are examples from Total Heart Health of dietary modifications that may be helpful to reduce a Kapha imbalance.

* Eat more light, dry, warm, bitter, pungent, astringent foods, such as bitter gourd, fenugreek leaf, guar, and well-cooked leafy green vegetables.

* Increase quinoa, amaranth, and barley.

* Reduce sweet, sour, salty tastes.

* Avoid fatty foods.

* Do not overeat.

* Avoid heavy foods such as meats, cheeses, and other hard-to-digest dairy products.

* Avoid ice-cold drinks and foods.

* Drink lots of warm water throughout the day to help flush toxins that can inhibit the function of the liver and pancreas.

* Avoid fasting or skipping meals.
