This Overnight Learning audiobook for diabetes was made in consultation with diabetes educators, endocrinologists, and other medical specialists. It is endorsed and distributed nationwide by The American Association of Diabetes Educators, and dispensed to people with diabetes by endocrinologists, diabetes nurse educators, nutritionists, dieticians and other diabetes health providers, as adjunctive treatment, alongside other protocols and treatments.
It was written and narrated by noted guided imagery and holistic health pioneer Belleruth Naparstek, scored to the exquisitely soothing music of Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's noted sound engineer, Bruce Gigax.
The narrative provides images of a steady, balanced digestive process; continuous, on-going organ renewal and repair, and a steady flow of energy and strength, thanks to the healthy, even absorption of nutrients. Other imagery provides extra relaxation and stress relief training for an additional healthful boost to blood chemistry.There are also suggestions to inspire and motivate self-care and a positive attitude toward the sometimes rigorous and frustrating demands involved in managing diabetes. A separate chapter of affirmations provides shorter versions of the same powerful themes for those who prefer to listen while engaged in other activities, or even while driving.
Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact. Recent research has shown that meditation and diabetes create a positive partnership, reducing cortisol, blood glucose and hemoglobin a1c.
We invite you to check your blood sugar before and after listening to 10 or 15 minutes of this program, and you'll see that this is an essential addition to your diabetes care toolkit.
