Reflexology For Diabetes & Pre-Diabetes
Help Regulate Blood Sugar & Insulin Secretions
There are four main types of diabetes mellitus (DM), in this particular treatment protocol we are focusing only on types 1 & 2 along with pre-diabetes.
This month sees the annual World Diabetes Day which is marked every year on 14th November in a global effort to raise awareness of the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. In addition to those already diagnosed with the condition, many people destined to develop type 2 diabetes can spend years in a state of pre-diabetes.
As a simple yet powerful tool to help regulate glandular and hormonal secretions, normalise insulin levels and balance blood sugars, neuro-reflex therapy is a great addition to your overall health and lifestyle management to help manage the side effects on all your body systems.
-World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. It is marked every year on 14 November, the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who co-discovered insulin along with Charles Best in 1922.
-537 million adults (1 in 10) were living with diabetes in 2021. This number is expected rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045.
-Almost 1 in 2 adults (44%) with diabetes remain undiagnosed (240 million). The majority have type 2 diabetes.
-541 million adults are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
-More than 1.2 million children and adolescents (0-19 years) live with type 1 diabetes
Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).
There are four main types of diabetes mellitus (DM), in this instance we are focusing only on types 1 & 2 along with pre-diabetes.
Type 1 DM results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and currently requires the person to inject insulin or wear an insulin pump. This form was previously referred to as "insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus" (IDDM) or "juvenile diabetes".
Type 2 DM results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute insulin deficiency. This form was previously referred to as non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or "adult-onset diabetes".
Type 2 diabetes is the most common type.
In the early stage of type 2, the predominant abnormality is reduced insulin sensitivity. At this stage, hyperglycemia can be reversed by a variety of measures and medications that improve insulin sensitivity or reduce glucose production by the liver.
Pre-diabetes indicates a condition that occurs when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 DM. Many people destined to develop type 2 DM spend many years in a state of pre-diabetes which has been termed "America's largest healthcare epidemic”.
Neuro Reflexology Diabetes Protocol helps regulate the glandular and hormonal secretions to normalise insulin levels and balance blood sugars to mitigate the onset of diabetic symptoms and side effects.
A combined face and foot therapy, this protocol is suitable for anyone dealing with type 1 or 2 diabetes and for those who are pre-diabetic to help address risk factors.
