Virendra Trivedi, a businessman of 67 years, had joined Diabetes Prevention Shibir in June, 2009, because he was a patient of Type-1 Diabetes Mellitus. The disease is very dangerous and affects all the systems of the body, specially central nervous system, heart, blood circulatory system and metabolism etc. Due to all these he had some other complaints also like excessive fatigue, high blood pressure and anger etc.
During this Shibir, he felt many improvements in his problems. He felt relaxed, comfortable in life's adverse situations, less anger and a decrease in blood glucose level. He had DM since 1985 and had been using insulin for 8 years continuously. He was started insulin with a mild dose but accordingly dose was increasing from 2 units to 27 units daily.
After completion of the Shibir, he had joined Healthy Life Club where we advised and taught specific Yoga Practices in a specific manner and we saw a miracle. After one month his doctor said to him that he had not need to take insulin because every week when he tested, his blood glucose level found under normal range so he decreased his insulin step by step. Now he is very happy because he is free from all that critical conditions and free from insulin also.
We have conducted an interview with him to receive his feedback. He was very thankful and awarded to Healthy Life Club and 'Life' and Life's efforts in providing health.
