During the time when the world is facing a deadly pandemic of coronavirus, the government has issued a nationwide lockdown in order to contain the spread of the COVID-19. Studies have revealed that out of 3 patients infected with coronavirus, one has been suffering from diabetes. There are many reasons that a person suffers from diabetes. According to Swami Ramdev, there are three main reasons for diabetes, first genetic, second unhealthy lifestyle and third, due to a prolonged illness, you adopt an unhealthy lifestyle due to which your immunity gets weakened. Due to this, the risk of blood sugar gets increased. While there have been many treatments for diabetes in medical science, yoga guru Swami Ramdev suggests treating it at home naturally by doing yoga asanas and pranayamas.
According to Swami Ramdev, diabetes can be easily overcome by doing 5 pranayamas and 5 yoga asanas daily. These yoga tips will help get rid of all types of diabetes by staying at home. Along with these Yogasanas, drink a kada (decoction) of Giloy, Basil, Pepper and Ashwagandha. In Pranayama, Swami Ramdev suggests doing Bhastrika, Udgith, Bhramari, Kapalabhati and Anulom vilom to treat diabetes.
