General Information About Diabetes
a disorder of metabolism---the way human's bodies use digested food for
growth and energy. Most of the food we eat is broken down by the digestive
juices into a simple sugar called glucose. And glucose is the main source
of fuel for the body.
the glucose passes into our bloodstream where it is available for body
cells to use for growth and energy. For the glucose to get into the cells,
insulin must be present. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas,
a large gland behind the stomach.
When we eat,
the pancreas is supposed to automatically produce the right amount of
insulin to move the glucose from our blood into our cells. In people with
diabetes, however, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin,
or the body cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. As a
result, glucose builds up in the blood, overflows into the urine, and
passes out of the body. Thus, the body loses its main source of fuel even
though the blood contains large amounts of glucose.
three types of diabetes:
diabetes mellitus (IDDM) occurs when the pancreas no longer produces any
or very little insulin. It is considered the body's system for fighting
infection turns against a part of the body in diabetes, and the
immune system attacks the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas
and destroys them. Insulin, you know, is needed in the body to use sugar
for energy. Approximately 10 percent of people with diabetes have Type-1
diabetes. Someone with IDDM needs daily injections of insulin to live.
- Noninsulin-Dependent Diabetes
90 percent are non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Type-2
diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when
the body does not use the insulin, though it is produced effectively.
- Gestational Diabetes
It is a temporary
condition that occurs during pregnancy. It affects 0.5% of pregnant
women with 40 percent of those cases developing into Type-2 diabetes later
in life times.

polyuria and loss of body weight. Early or asymptomaric patients only
show abnormal release of cortical hormone and insulin. The level of
fasting blood sugar is high with abnormal glucose tolerance test. Symptomatic
patients are frequently complicated by other symptoms of dermal, neural
and endocrinous disorders, besides polyphogia, polyphsia, polyuria and
loss of body weight.

complications and concomitant diseases of diabetes mellitus are diabetic
ketoacidosis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetic renopathy and peripheral

than 160-180 mg. Urine is positive for glucose. If complicated by ketosis,
urine is positive for ketone bodies.
tolerance test can be used to diagnose early or suspected cases and
is the principal test means in diagnosis.

DaMo Qigong Practice: Deploying Internal Medicine to Treat Diabetes
Qigong, an ancient science and art of health, is a traditional form of Chinese
energy excise and healing art for the body, mind, and spirit. Qigong is
ideal for establishing emotional balance in today's stressful lifestyle
and for helping to heal seriously ill people--those struggling with chronic
degenerative conditions such as paralysis, cancer, asthma, cardiovascular
and other more.
People will ask us what the mechanism of qigong is. Generally speaking,
like in a rice field, western medicine always have the trend of using all
to kill the weeds. But in the meantime the rice shoots incur damage, more
or less. Most patients know what the results is when they receive radiotherapy
and chemotherapy. But for qigong practice, at beginning it will directly
strengthen patients immune system and more deep concerning inner energy
system. In a word, it seeks to harmonize the relationship of all internal
organs and drop the idea to distinguish which is friend and which is enemy.
How to achieve such aim, you may ask? For a tree, at the very beginning
there is no division of which is normal and which abnormal for it stays
at initiative stage of the very root. But later different branches develop
into various forms, and good, bad, long, short, etc. come into being. By
adopting special means we can reverse the process of growing up and take
the course of sailing against the life current to return back to the very
beginning. Once we reach that state there should be no any "branches"
possibly existing to wield effects upon our physical existence. Qigong is
just the method of how to take the reversing course.
As like to let the rice shoots get stronger and stronger, the weeds will
have less and less effects upon the rice shoots. As the process continues,
sometime the weeds will have no effect upon the rice shoots. Later the time
will come of the rice shoots overpowering weeds. And people naturally know
why qigong can prolong patients' life expectancy, at least. If patients
can properly proceed with the practice, qigong can bring them much more
than they could expect, especially the serene happiness general people could
never have the chance to experience throughout their life time. Yes, somebody
may ridicule at the theory, but no proper practice for a certain period
people will never know what the qigong is. Qigong is the study of practice
rather than just a theory. Qigong theory will be always beyond the thinking
sphere of the persons who never seriously join the practice for a time.
2. Qigong Treatment Course
2-1. Taking Chinese Herbal Medicine
Patients with diabetes are advised to take some Chinese medicine which can
help open up channels and collaterals quickly and strengthen immune system.
In most of the herbal formulas the herbs should work together to open up
channels in a quick way and strenghten Yin and Yang, make for the balance
of Yin and Yang, quicken the blood flow, enhance the presence of Defensive
Qi and Operative Qi, enrich the blood and Qi. Etc. Here we recommend Diabetes Recovery Capsule. Taking such herbal medicine
can lay a good foundation for Qigong practice to quickly take effect: first
is the Yang Qi can have a play ground to arise and reside in. Second, Qi
can arise quickly in large amount. When Qi arises from the very deep Qi
Ocean the internal organs would function more harmoniously with each other
and they would like more to behave as like an integrated unit which can
effect incredible power in launching overwhelming force against any potential
2-2.Receive External Qi
Emitted by Qualified Qigong Master
Patients with diabetes should receive external Qi emitted by qigong masters,
to help them get rid of the evil qi of cancer. Such evil Qi features entangling
nature and could not be eliminated easily when patients only choose self
practice. Yes, the Qigong master will experience a very difficult period
when assimilating such Qi and they should use special means to get rid of
it finally. Sometimes, such external Qi treatment is essential for many
cancer patients to gain progress with Qigong practice. Most of patients
will experience such feeling as strong heat, sweating, tingling, inner trembling,
up-rising power flow, etc. Many patients' pain can disappear quickly with
such external Qi emission. In a word, another obstacle is moved away.
2-3. Persistent Self-Practice
When channels are opened up and evil Qi is driven away, the excellent environment
for Qi to arise comes to be ready and patients should pracitice diligently
with the practice every day. Many patients failed to gain final success
because they don't have a strong will power in persisting
in the practice every day. Qigong practice pay much attention upon how to
discipline the false heart. There exist no diseases that cannot be cured,
yet there always exist the false heart that could not be dead. So the first
step for qigong practice is to discipline the false heart. Zhong Liu once
said:" I am a dead man still alive. I can see nothing, I can hear nothing,
my thinking ability is gong. I have no consciousness of my existence."
All these mean I am dead, yet my mind-will still keeps its presence motionlessly
in the infinite emptiness. What am I? I have been dead for thousands of
The key for successfully achieving incredible
progress lies in rapid storing up adequate Yang Qi, then with it to open
up the twelve meridians, Ren channels and Du channel, and the eight extra
meridians. When Yang Qi and Primeval Qi smoothly circulate in all channels
and collaterals, all evil pathogenic factors will be gradually die out.
There are about twenty postures available for treating
ALS in Qigong. If patients persist in practicing these postures six hours
every day in a proper way, and keep free from all other stray thoughts
intruding upon the heart, there will be no despair anymore! When
our heart, as like the root of a tree, falls ' ill,' our body will fall
ill. When our heart keeps away from all 'diseases,' our body will be healthy
Lee, Xuhan, a great Qigong master accomplished in Tao,
once said: " When only the last breath is left along there still
exists the opportunity for the patient to recuperate their health again."
For proper Qigong practice, the following lists all
the essential things patients should pay attention to:
- Strong will power in persisting in the practice
- Preserve enough Jing for it is the physical foundation
for Qigong progress.
- Fall the heart into a constant stillness, get rid
of all disturbance, abstain from experiencing too much emotional changes.
- Lead a very simple life, take vegetables rather
than food of cold, pepery, fat, too sweet nature.
- Choose to practice very effective school of Qigong,
which can prevent patients from wasting too much time.

The first is to discipline the heart throughly, and cleanse the heart
of all stray thoughts. The second is continue with the practice three
hours every day. The third is to take some herbal medicine and puncture
some points in order to lay a good foundation for Qigong practice. The
fourth is to pay much attention upon the food you take. Almost 85% of
the diseases have less and more connection with the food people take every
day. No carefully prepared food you are advised to stop Qigong practice.
