Traditional Chinese martial arts exercises like T’ai Chi could help Diabetics better manage their blood sugar levels.
Researchers found that a 12-week program of T’ai Chi, which is taught in classes all over the United States, led to a “significant” fall of 8% in blood sugar levels in those suffering from obesity-linked Type 2 Diabetes.
A study carried out by Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan also discovered that the exercises boosted the body’s immune system. This is important because an improved immune system damps down chronic inflammation of the body’s internal organs, which is associated with Diabetes.
In a separate study, researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia found that a 12-week program of T’ai Chi and Qigong – another Chinese exercise – resulted in a significant fall in blood glucose levels in a dozen middle-aged to older adults.
The imbalance of blood glucose and insulin called Insulin Resistance in these individuals also improved significantly. Both studies were published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
T’ai Chi involves moderate exercise using flowing movements and deep breathing using the diaphragm. It is practiced by millions of Chinese daily as a way to maintain health into old age.
A regular exercise regime combined with a balanced, nutritious diet can help reverse an underlying cause of excess weight and obesity, which can lead to Insulin Resistance. By reversing this latter condition, you can facilitate PCOS weight loss.
