Diabetes for today! After eating, the remaining calories
left in the body form visceral fat, which causes high blood pressure,
hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. It is the muscle that plays a very important role
in alleviating the symptoms of diabetes. You’ve got around 650 muscles in your body, and 70 percent of which are in the lower back and body. In particular, if you have lots of thigh muscles,
you can burn unnecessary visceral fat. The muscles store the intake sugars as glycogen, and use them in the form of glucose,
resulting in lowering the blood glucose level. Also, muscles actively consume energy to prevent sugar from overflowing in the blood, and neutral fat and cholesterol
from being accumulated in the organs. Therefore, in preventing and treating diabetes,
not only taking care of your food intake, but building muscles and strengthening them
is absolutely necessary. Hopefully, the qigong movements and poses for strengthening lower body
help to treat and prevent diabetes~! Breathing & Lower body strengthening :
Joints warm-up, Maltagi arm press-down and rotation,
Apkkubi arm press-down and rotation, Maltagi hold Before we exercise, let’s warm up the joints. Knee rotation. One, two, three, four, five.
On the opposite side. Waist rotation. One, two, three, four, five.
On the opposite side. Make sure warming up joints first
that are far from the heart is a good way not to strain our body. Shoulder rotation. One, two, three, four, five.
On the opposite. Wrist rotation. One, two, three, four, five.
On the opposite. Neck rotation. This time, three is enough, one two three.
The opposite. Shoulder pulls. One, two, three, four, five.
The opposite. The last, body shaking
In spite of the name ‘Shoulder Shaking’, you can shake the whole body. Your shoulders should be raised almost until they touch your ears. Make your elbows 90 degrees, and your hands closed lightly as if you hold an egg.
Body shaking, 10 reps. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
Turn your heel outward like bow-legged. Gather your knees and keep the distance of both knees
one or two fists width. Lower your arms first, then raise them,
then lower and rotate your arms. Repeat the motion. When lowering, do it by bending your knees. When raising, fully stretch your back backward. When rotating, bend your knees slightly.
Do the exercise while moving your knees slowly. Lower the body and stretch your back
as much as you can. Give your knees a little rebound.
When standing up, don’t stretch your knees fully. I’ll show you how to do it from the side. Lower your arms by bending your knees. Raise your arms by stretching your back backward. Rotate your arms with breathing out. Bend knees and lower hands.
Stretch back and raise hands. Breathe out again with standing up a little. Be careful not to stand up completely. I’ll do the qigong exercise 45 degrees from the side.
After taking the pose, follow along the motions. Let’s do it 10 reps. Next, I’ll do it in Apkkubi pose,
10 reps for each side. Turn your front foot 45 degrees inward. Keep your back foot perpendicular to the floor,
bend your knees, stretch your back backward, and
keep your buttocks slightly out. Do the same hand movements
as I did in the maltagi pose. I’ll do the exercise, arm press-down and rotation
in Apkkubi, 10 reps to the right side. When lowering arms, breathe out.
When raising them, breathe in. Bend knees, stretch back backward,
and put buttocks out. Bend your lower back forward enough, until your lower belly touches your thigh. In the Apkkubi pose, do the qigong. I’ll keep standing in Maltagi pose. Raise your arms. Like this, make a triangle with your both hands. For the Maltagi pose,
stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Turn your heels outward like bow-legged. Bend your knees enough, and make a triangle with hands and
both palms go forward in front of your face. Keep standing the pose for one minute. After taking the pose, do shoulder shaking to relax your whole body, 10 reps. So far, qigong exercises of
strengthening lower body and back for preventing and curing diabetes. Do the qigong at least one set in a day to help you prevent diabetes from occurring
and treat it effectively!
