A. General Information About Diabetes

Diabetes is 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.

After digestion, 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.

There are three types of diabetes:

  1. Insulin-Dependent Diabetes
    Insulin-dependent 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.

  2. Noninsulin-Dependent Diabetes
    The remaining 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.

  3. 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.

Diabetes is associated with long-term complications that affect almost every major part of the body. It contributes to blindness, heart disease, strokes, kidney failure, amputations, and nerve damage. Uncontrolled diabetes can coSome symptoms of diabetes include:

Main points of diagnosis

  • A typical case of diabetes mellitus often features polyphagia, polydipsia, 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.

  • The main complications and concomitant diseases of diabetes mellitus are diabetic ketoacidosis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetic renopathy and peripheral neuropathy. Cardiovascular complications are the main causes of death.

Auxiliary examination:

  • Fasting blood-glucose is higher than 130 mg. Blood glucose after meal is more than 160-180 mg. Urine is positive for glucose. If complicated by ketosis, urine is positive for ketone bodies.
  • Glucose tolerance test can be used to diagnose early or suspected cases and is the principal test means in diagnosis.

E. DaMo Qigong Practice: Deploying Internal Medicine to Treat Diabetes

1. Mechanism
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 their means 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 pathogenic factors.

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 years."

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 always!

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 every day
  • 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.
