We see that stress is also one of the reasons causing some diseases like diabetes, autoimmune disease, arthritis, etc.., To get rid of these diseases stress management is important in today’s life.

How is diabetes caused due to stress?

 

Whenever the person feels stressed a hormone is released in the human body called cortisol. The cortisol hormone increases the uptake of glucose into the bloodstream. Because whenever the person feels stressed human metabolism can be increased and energy needs are increased. Long-term duration of stress can lead to increases in the glucose in the bloodstream. Also, the cortisol hormone affects the pancreatic cells which release the insulin. Finally, the stress leads to increases in the glucose in the bloodstream.

How meditation can help to decrease diabetes?

Meditation is a relaxation response that we give to our body. When we can relax the body, the stress hormone cortisol level will be decreased. The body’s metabolism will get into the normal condition. The blood glucose level will be under normal level. The pancreas can release the insulin without any effect.
