Try these Yoga techniques to fight Diabetes


Our consciousness is all the time moving around and we are receiving energy from the whole Creation, through energy centers called chakras, which act like receptors and catch these frequencies and translate it into the body. Like the Manipoorak chakra will catch all the thoughts which are connected to power, Anahad chakra will catch all the thoughts which are connected to love, Vishuddhi chakra will catch all the thoughts connected to creativity. 

A disease is an imbalance, which first enters your pranic layer (chakras and nadis) and then manifests into the physical body. A clairvoyant can see this imbalance in the form of grosser shades in the pranic layer, much before it sets into the body. For example, diabetes is caused by imbalance at the level of Manipoorak. When manifested, it affects the pancreas in the physical body and results in an uncontrolled increase in the sugar levels of the body. Lethargy and low energy levels are early symptoms.


If the disease has manifested in the body, it is recommended you see a good vaid or a doctor.

Here we detail certain remedies and asanas to prevent the disease from setting in. In case you are diabetic, these practices maybe adopted in tandem with the medical/ayurvedic treatment.


Take 4-5 pieces of the Jamun tree bark. Heat them in an earthen utensil on coal under the ground. Combustion will take place and it will turn into powder. Ensure not to burn it and turn it into ash instead, as the process of combustion starts, you take it out, pound it and store it. Eat two 2 tsp full of the powder, 3 times a day with hot water.

This will give the strength to your pancreas which is going to help you manage diabetes. For more such Ayurvedic remedies one may refer to the book ‘Sanatan Kriya, The Ageless Dimension’

The remedy must be coupled with certain yogic asans to control the rising sugar levels in the body.


It is important that the breath rate and heart rate do not shoot up while performing asans. But since these are repetitive asans, there is a possibility of a slight increase in the breath rate while performing them. Therefore it is vital to perform them in tandem with Sanatan Kriya to balance out or decrease the number of breaths taken overall. It is advised you learn the practices at a Dhyan Foundation centre near you.

Veerbhadra Asan – Stand straight. As you inhale, slowly bend forward keeping your spine straight. Touch both hands on the ground and raise your left leg up so it remains parallel to the ground as you balance the body on the right leg. Gently exhale and bring the leg down. Repeat this 7 times.

Natraj Asan – Inhaling, bend your knee backwards and lift the left leg behind you and raise your right arm up while you look upwards. Support the left ankle with left hand. As you exhale bring your hand and foot down. Repeat 7 times.

Udyan & Jalandhar Bandh – Stand straight, inhale and expand your stomach as much as possible, then exhale from your mouth emptying the stomach and the lungs as much as possible. The area below the rib cage has to be pulled inwards but only enough so it does not cause any discomfort or trauma. Do a chin lock, Jalandhar Bandh, your chin touching the chest as you look down. Exhale while the abdomen is pulled inside. Gradually release the abdominal lock then the chin lock.

Caution: Kapal bhati pranayam should be avoided completely as it causes hyperactivity and is not advised for diabetes.

Along with the asans it’s important to strengthen the Manipoork chakra (navel), as diabetes is caused due to an imbalance in the Manipoorak chakra. The beej mantra of Manipoorak chakra is RAM.  Sit in Sukhasan or Vajrasan. Place both palms on the navel, one on top of the other, and chant RAM. To hear the correct uccharan of the mantra, visit
