Diabetes is a chronic condition resulting from low levels of insulin and high levels of glucose in the blood.
Type 1 or insulin dependent Diabetes is most prevalent in childhood and puberty, however it can develop at any time in life. The onset is usually sudden and results from a failure of the pancreas to produce insulin.
Type 2 or non-insulin dependent Diabetes is far more prevalent than type 1, usually develops slowly, and can go undiagnosed for a long time. It is most common in people over forty, overweight and who have a genetic predisposition. This disorder occurs when the body is unable to produce a sufficient amount of insulin, or it cannot properly use the insulin that is produced. Type 2 Diabetes can sometimes be managed with exercise and a properly balanced diet.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who brought the Transcendental Meditation technique to the world more than 50 years ago, has revived and systematized Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. The word "Vedic" means pertaining to Veda, the field of Pure Knowledge or Total Knowledge of Natural Law.
For thousands of years, Veda and the Vedic Literature have been held to be the expression of the Total Knowledge of Natural Law. According to tradition, the Vedic sounds contained in Veda are the fundamental vibrations which structure the material universe, including the human body. Through a tender impulse of Vedic vibration, pain can be transformed into a feeling of pleasantness and abnormality can be transformed into normal physiological functioning.
