What is Diabetes?
It is a condition in which the amount of sugar /glucose in the blood is too high. This is because your body is unable to see the sugar properly and this is because the body’s way of making glucose into energy is not working optimally.
How can Diabetes affect my feet?
Our feet are supplied with blood to keep them healthy and normal. Our feet has many nerves as a warning system so if you have a stone or needle in your shoe then your nerves in your feet will instantly send a message to your brain. However, if your diabetic condition is not controlled well for a long period of time this can result in Nerve damaging which reduce feeling in your feet The damaged nerve will now mean that you will no longer feel the needle or stone in your shoe because of the loss of feeling in your feet. This loss of sensation in your feet could now lead to an injury in your feet that you can’t feel, and that injury can further lead to an infection. Poor Circulation Now of you have poor circulation the infection affecting your feet will take longer to heal than a non-diabetic foot. This is because of decreased blood flow in a diabetic foot. If You have poor circulation its very important to take extra care to protect your feet from injury. Most foot problems in diabetic people occurs when injuries occur and go unnoticed and untreated and the healing is delayed because of poor circulation.

• MERIDIAN THERAPY
Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians are energy channels that runs throughout our bodies. There are meridians and six main meridians that run through the feet. All our meridians are interlinked. Due to a in depth understanding of how the energy pathways run in our body, therapeutic Reflexology with meridian treatment is an effective treatment to restore vital energy and clear blockages hence assisting your own body to start healing itself. In Western medicine this concept could be compared to blood flowing through the circulatory system. The energy flowing through our meridian pathways is also like chi and we get chic energy from the good nutrient dense vibrational food we eat and the air we breathe
It is important that we have enough chi or energy to maintain a healthy body. If we deplete chi or energy, then we are starving our body of chi and allowing disease to begin on a cellular level. When energy becomes blocked the continuous healthy flow of chi along our meridians are disturbed and illness and disease can result if this flow is not restored. A meridian therapist can pinpoint clues manifesting along your meridian and notice symptoms of illness indicating congestion within your meridian pathways. These could be external manifestations along a meridian pathway such as warts, eczema, toenail condition or internal manifestations such as arthritic conditions, constipation, sinus just to mention a few. The meridians are stimulated during the reflexology session, it is not a separate treatment.
The World Health Organization (WHO), announced, in 1990, that Auricular therapy is “probably the most developed and best documented, scientifically, of all the “micro-systems” of acupuncture and is the most practical and widely used.”Dr Nogier discovered this treatment. He discovered the ear is a ‘micro system of the whole body and this means that one small area of our body represents the entire body. There is no direct nerve connection between the ear and the body but the nerve from our ear connects to the reflex centre of our brain. When I stimulate specific points on the ear the neurological reflex sends messages down to the spinal cord and then to the nerves that connects to the corresponding part of the body. Stimulating the acupoints on the ears it triggers a natural healing response.
