)-- Spa-Warehouse, a premier hot tub and spa dealer in Ventura and Thousand Oaks and Malibu area selling MAAX portable spas, publishes 3 tips for American Diabetes Month.
“Diabetes is a disease on the rise,” said Jim Vishnefske, president of Spa-Warehouse. “With November being American Diabetes Month, there’s no better time to try and find the best ways to battle this disease,” continued Vishnefske. Here are the three ways to control diabetes.
Drink It Away - The average American consumes roughly 152 pounds (yes, pounds) of sugar every year according to studies by the DHHS, United States Department of Health and Human Services. Of that massive amount of sugar, over 33% of it is consumed in the form of sugary drinks like soda. A study by the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition from the Imperial College of London showed that just a single serving of any type of sugar sweetened sodas per day increases the overall risk of Type II Diabetes by as much as 22%.
While fresh, plain water is always the best alternative for providing hydration to the body, it is still possible to enjoy a relaxing beverage without boosting sugar levels. Substitute a warm glass of green tea for sugary sodas and even caffeine filled coffee or black teas. Plain green tea provides lots of taste and many extra health bonuses as well, such as a high level of antioxidants.
Work It Off - Controlling diabetes means learning how to get rid of the couch potato mentality. Exercise plays as much of a role in blood sugar regulation as a good diet does. According to the American Diabetes Association, regular activity boosts metabolism to help the body absorb and use nutrients more efficiently and it increases the cellular sensitivity to insulin so the body uses it better.
The first step is just getting started. For many Americans not used to daily exercise that can be the biggest hurdle. Finding exercise solutions that are enjoyable can make a big difference in how likely a person is to continue with the program, so don’t pick an exercise based solely on how effective it will be in battling diabetes at first. Even something as simple as walking around the block everyday is a good start.
However, for the best exercises to beat diabetes, high intensity workouts are the goal. The ADA recommends 30 minutes of intense aerobic work 5 times per week.
Soak It Away - Dr. Philip L. Hooper, MD from the McKee Medical Center studied the effects of hot water therapy from hot tubs on blood sugar levels, and found it especially helpful for those patients who could not exercise. The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that soaking 30 minutes per day in a hot tub, at least six days per week for three weeks effectively lowered blood sugar averages in the patients and also helped decrease weight levels by 3 to 4 pounds.
The study also showed that soaking in a hot tub had more beneficial effects than swimming, and was superior to simply soaking in a warm bath tub due to the fact that hot tub waters are regulated to maintain the level of heat. Diane Pearson, RN suggests that hot tubs also add a level of socialization that makes them a great way for individuals to get the benefits in a way they are most likely to maintain and continue.
Because of the relaxing effects of a hot tub, it is best to pursue this type of therapy in the evening. Soaking for 30 minutes before bed also provides a good foundation for a great night’s sleep.
