Posted: Updated:

Millions of adults in the country have prediabetes and are unaware of this fact. This condition can lead to type 2 diabetes if untreated. The new program halts this progress, IQIM.org announces

Bothell, WA – September 10, 2018 /MarketersMedia/

Diabetes is now the seventh leading cause of death in America and many individuals are at risk of developing this disease but remain unaware or in denial of this fact. In 2015, more than 80 million adults in the United States suffered from prediabetes. The Institute of Qigong and Integrative Medicine wishes to alert people of this shocking risk and is offering an integrative program designed to Reverse Prediabetes and prevent this condition from progressing to type 2 diabetes.

“Anyone concerned about diabetes may take advantage of this program. It helps individuals live well and free of this common disease, doing so by integrating the mind-body-soul. As a result, the person’s quality of life is greatly improved. The program blends Yi RenÒ Qigong and traditional Chinese medicine along with nutrition, positive psychology, herbal medicine, and naturopathic medicine to offer a comprehensive approach to dealing with the condition and enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself. The program guides and supports individuals who are working to overcome their health challenges and become healthier in the process,” Amy Putiri, spokesperson for the program, announces.

People should not assume that simply because they have prediabetes they are not in danger. This is a serious medical condition that needs to be addressed promptly. Every day the condition is left untreated, the person moves closer and closer to developing type 2 diabetes. The program works to reverse this condition and restore the person’s optimal health. This 10-month program consists of five weekend informational and experiential seminars. Each two-day seminar will incorporate Yi Ren Qigong exercises with various topics presented by experts in the field of psychology, western and naturopathic medicine, nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, and qigong. Qigong is gentle on the body and consists of breathing, meditation, intention, and slow movements to activate and circulate your bio-energy, connecting the mind-body-soul. Between seminars, we will offer online support through video and discussion formats to reinforce the information discussed and exercises provided in the seminars, and help participants create healthy lifestyle changes.

Prevention is key when it comes to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Individuals who are more than 45 years of age, those who are overweight, and anyone who has had gestational diabetes are more at risk of developing this condition. Furthermore, certain races, such as African Americans, Mexican Americans, American Indians, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and Asian Americans,

have a higher rate of prediabetes. Those who exercise less than three times a week, consume a standard American diet, or those with a family history of diabetes are at greater risk. However, every American should be tested. With positive lifestyle changes, type 2 diabetes can be prevented. Visit our site to learn more today and schedule an appointment to have your blood sugar tested. You cannot be too careful with your health,” Putiri states.
