A Free Report on Guided Imagery and Diabetes

11 Aug

Last week Jim Mosnot and I attended the 2013 AADE meeting (American Association of Diabetes Educators), where I gave one of the keynotes – talked about the impact guided imagery and other mind-body methods have on managing diabetes.

It was a great public health opportunity to put together a free report on diabetes and guided imagery for the attendees.  So we did.

The report summarizes the positive impacts on blood glucose, cholesterol & lipid profiles, hemoglobin A1c, blood pressure, peripheral circulation, neuropathy, motivation for self-care, body mass index, depression, anxiety and other psychological distress. It also offers several links to sample audio segments and a lot of practice tips, plus a bunch of research citations for ammunition with skeptics.

At the end of my talk, I let people know that they could access the report by texting the word ‘BELLERUTH’ and their email address to this number:  1-678-249-3375, whereupon, they immediately received the download.

So now you can, too.  It’s a strong report and we want people to have it.  Please pass the word around to colleagues, friends and family who deal with diabetes:

•    Text the word: BELLERUTH
•    And your email address
•    To this number: 1-678-249-3375

AADE 2013 was an impressive conference.  Diabetes educators are a pretty wonderful bunch – committed, knowledgeable, smart, down-to-earth, caring and fun.  A lot of professions are represented here: nurse practitioners, dieticians, pharmacists, endocrinologists, public health officers from the CDC, social workers, psychologists… and many, I noticed, are serious foodies – always a plus, as far as I’m concerned!

You can access their summary of my talk here.

Okay, take care and be well.
