Let’s face it, Indians love to eat good food and the multifaceted Indian cuisine is full of sweets, fried and rich dishes which has made this nation the diabetes capital of the world. Definitely not something we can be proud of. Artificial suppression by external insulin has weakened our own defense mechanism against this fear over time, and now it is not uncommon to see a family history of diabetes in many. There is another problem, not detected and addressed at the right time; he appears out of the blue with a vengeance, demanding rigid lifestyle changes as the consequences could even lead to death.
Some quick facts to tell us the seriousness of this disease:
● In 2019, approximately 463 million adults (20-79 years old) were living with diabetes; by 2045, that number will increase to 700 million.
● The proportion of people with type 2 diabetes is increasing in most countries
● 79% of adults with diabetes lived in low- and middle-income countries
● 1 in 5 people over 65 have diabetes
● 1 in 2 people (232 million) with diabetes has not been diagnosed
● Diabetes has caused 4.2 million deaths – this is much worse than the number of deaths from Covid.
● One in six people with diabetes in the world is Indian and the situation is not improving.
While eating the right food is never a bad idea, overeating or under exercising is a problem, especially if you have diabetes. Since the onset of the global coronavirus pandemic, doctors have suggested that Covid-19 may pose a serious threat to people with diabetes. But has it ever occurred to you that the coronavirus can cause new cases of diabetes?
Recently, it was noted that people who have recovered from the coronavirus show a spike in their blood sugar. There has been a surge in the number of people with diabetes during the coronavirus pandemic. About 40% of people who have recovered from Covid-19 have developed diabetes. The Delta variant of the coronavirus damages beta cells present in the islet of Langerhans of the pancreas. Beta cells are essential for the synthesis of insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar. By damaging beta cells, the Delta virus can cause diabetes. In addition, the coronavirus tends to bind to ACE-2 receptors in organs, thereby making the body resistant to insulin.
Although this is a serious threat to the body, it is not unmanageable or (in some cases) reversible. If a person is on the verge of diabetes, the simple act of applying yellow color to the fingernail of the little finger of the right hand works like magic. The yellow color can be turmeric, a yellow flower petal, or even nail polish.
Likewise, applying a strip of yellow color all around the “K” joint of the index finger of the left hand and the index finger of the right hand can cure diabetes. But if the patient is on insulin, the application of a strip of yellow color should also be applied to the “P” joint.
If the sugar level reaches 200, men will experience pain in the knuckle, next to the palm. While women will feel pain in the index finger of the right hand. It is advisable to stimulate the pressure point with a probe, it can be a blunt pencil or a ballpoint pen without a refill. The probe should be 1/3 the length of the phalanx. Apply a moong seed with a white germination point facing the skin. This remedy should be done once a day.
A low sugar content is more dangerous than a high sugar content. Every three to four hours, the patient experiences symptoms of low blood sugar. People whose blood sugar drops frequently should see their doctor and take appropriate medication. Always keep a chocolate or a piece of sugar on hand if you are someone whose blood sugar levels keep dropping.
Continue to stick moong dal and take the medications prescribed by your doctor. Sticking moong dal for 15 to 20 days on a regular basis can reverse your diabetes. Later, avoid sugar after getting rid of the disease.
And for those who suffer from hyperglycemia, such people should apply a magnet to the nail of the little finger of the right hand. The magnet should be kept for one to five hours, depending on the sugar levels. Never apply magnets at night, as you might not realize that the sugar level is low and that low sugar level could cause serious problems. Medication will be free in about 18 months (without a dose of insulin) to 30 months, if you are on insulin.
