How Sanjiu Chinese Medicine Treat Diabetes

Diabetes is a common metabolic endocrinopathy (hormonal disease) related to the pancreas (leaf shaped organ in the body, which produces Insulin). Insulin is the hormone which prevents accumulation of sugar in the blood).

Causes of Diabetes:
a. Obesity often contributes to the problem because the presence of the excess adipose tissue decreases the production of insulin
b. During middle age, insulin decreases gradually
c. Anxiety can increase Epinephrine production in the body, which can:
- Block insulin secretion
- Stimulate glucagon production (glucagon is the hormone that has the opposite effect as insulin, it facilitates the release of stored sugar into blood)
- Activate glycogen breakdown (glycogen is the stored form of glucose)
d. Overeating is a common cause of elevated blood sugar, since diabetics do not have enough insulin to decrease the blood sugar level
e. Drinking and smoking can increase cholesterol level in the body, which leads to decrease in insulin production.

Signs and Symptoms:
a. There is greater than 160 - 180 mg per 100 mL or more of whole blood sugar concentration two hours after meal, and over 130 mg per 100 mL early in the morning
b. The sugar or ketoses are found in the urine two hours after meal
c. Increased hunger and sweating
- Severe thirst
- Polyuria (Increased urination) is another one of the symptoms;
- Weight loss is the symptom of chronic diabetes
d. The main complications are diabetic ketoacidosis (state of uncontrolled breakdown of fats in the body due to lack of Insulin), cardiovascular diseases, diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease due to diabetes), and peripheral neuropathy (initially dull pain and burning sensation in legs, feet and then numbness in hands, feet and legs).

Qigong Treatment
Generally speaking, Qigong is good for healing of this specific ailment, however individual results may vary. It improves the flow of the Qi and the circulation of the blood, so you'll experience more energy, but you won't see or feel any immediate effects. As with many exercises and therapies, it takes a few weeks or even months of practice before you'll see any significant improvement.
