Combined Therapy: Right-Mindfulness and Dietetics

Right-Mindfulness – Based Diabetes Recovery

Being diagnosed with Diabetes can be a life changing event. Managing diabetes is not only just sticking to the insulin regimen and diet requirements as prescribed by your dietitian. The real issue is when trying to deal with setback; i.e. missing a shot of insulin or not eating healthily.

Heba is a registered dietitian with the NHS, who has several years experience in working with diabetic patients. Heba realised over the years that seeing her patients for only 15 minutes per appointments, hardly solved the concerns and struggles the patients expressed over their condition.

Heba understands that the psychological impact of diabetes on patients upon receiving the diagnosis and the symptoms linked to the condition directly change the course of their life.

Eventually, living with diabetes affects individual’s perception of themselves (self-image), increases emotional ill-health like stress, anxiety, depression, fear over insulin adjustment; but more importantly, accompanied with psychological comorbidities.

These psychological comorbidities can vary from body image issue such as developing eating disorders – food addiction or leading to behavioural and conduct disorders – self-harm, self-abuse, suicidal thoughts, self-neglect, self-criticism, isolation, withdrawal from social interactions.

Therefore, integrating dietetics and right-mindfulness will help you to not only manage diabetes, but to understand the psychological impact of diabetes on a psychological emotional, physiological level and in some cases on a transpersonal level.

In a holistic approach to overcome diabetes, you will become the expert in designing their own self-care strategies more sustainably and managing diabetes to its optimum.
