Visakhapatnam ( Andhra Pradesh ): On the last day of a two-day program on “Goodbye to Diabetes”, arranged by the Brahma Kumaris of MVP Colony at Central Park in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, BK Dr. Srimanth Sahu began the morning and evening sessions with 30-minute Walking Yoga exercises with musical rhythm in which nearly 2,000 people (walkers and joggers) took part.
BK Dr. Srimant spoke about the main causes of Diabetes. Family history, Modern lifestyle, Environmental factors, Obesity, Overeating, Overweight, Drugs containing steroids, use of Chemical fertilizers, Pesticides in farming, Tension and Stress in the workplace are some of the main causes in becoming Diabetic. He said that 25% in cities and only 5% in villages are suffering with Sugar complaints because rural people toil hard physically, while in cities mental activities are more. He said that it is a Silent Killer because by the time it is known most of the organs are already damaged. He said that having a Sweet Nature is very good for health but Sweet Blood Sugar is hazardous for health.
He then reassured that Diabetes is totally preventable by sincere Holistic approach that involves Proper Diet Control, Simple Physical Exercise and Regular Rajayoga Meditation. He said, “Man is not a machine to be repaired in the hospitals. He must have the knowledge about the Self for holistic (spiritual) health of Mind, Body and Family (Society)”.
He said, “To manage Diabetes one must have a Positive and Peaceful Mind, and a Loving and Generous Heart, thereby he becomes mentally, physically, socially, financially, emotionally and intellectually healthy. Thus diabetic condition is totally vanished.”
