Some of most common daily side effects of type one diabetes are insulin resistance, anxiety and gastro-intestinal distress. Left untreated these common issues can turn into bigger problems like retinopathy, depression, heart disease and gastroparesis.
There is no cure just yet but in the meantime there is a simple and powerful way to improve and even resolve these common side effects with yoga.
The answer is vagal tone.
The vagus nerve is the tenth cranial nerve, the longest in the body. It is also known as the "wandering nerve" and connects the brain to the heart, lungs, diaphragm, stomach and digestive tract.
By toning the vagus nerve you can improve your stress response, increase circulation and reduces heart rate, inflammation and insulin resistance. Not to mention a healthy vagus nerve elicits parasympathetic response improving your brain function, reducing anxiety, depression and giving you the strength to recover sooner from the side effects from hyper and hypoglycemia.
Naturally yoga therapy is more parasympathetic.
