  2. Start your yoga session by Chanting ‘OM’ loudly and repeat it 11 times. This creates good and effective vibrations. Diabetes is often termed as the ‘mother of all diseases’. That is why Baba Ramdev has developed a yoga session for Diabetics and to help them get rid of the disease.

    To begin with, a person who has diabetes has to do Bhastrika pranayama every day for about 30 minutes. While practicing pranayama, one must have sound knowledge of mudras. The energy which is created while practicing meditation or pranayama is transferred in to the body through mudras. That is why one needs to have good knowledge of mudras.

  3. Kapalbhati is one of the best options for a diabetic. If a diabetic person practices this technique regularly, then certainly he can get his disease controlled. This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath and then exhale quickly, making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati, you have to forcefully and quickly exhale and slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times and then release. This works as a blessing for diabetics and helps in controlling the disease.
