Applying gentle pressure on precise acupoints called acupressure is believed to stimulate the central nervous system (i.e. brain & spinal cord) to release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and the brain. These chemicals release other chemicals, such as hormones, that influence the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional wellbeing. And thus naturally the blood’s sugar/glucose level normalizes without any negative side effect, but may be with positive side effects (additional benefits).
Before applying any alternative medicines therapy, you should be aware that many of these therapies have not been evaluated in scientific studies.
Diabetes as per TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine)
Diabetes is known in TCM (traditional chinese medicine) as depletion-thirst disease, characterized by polydipsia (drinks abnormally large amounts of fluids), polyphagia (eating too much), polyuria (passage of large volumes of urine) and emaciation (occurs when a organism loses substantial amounts of much needed fat & often muscle tissue, making that organism look extremely thin).
