Most effective for Diabetes
A German clinical study, which parallels our clinical experience with diabetes patients: People living diabetes Type 2 love Nordic Pole Walking because of the moderate intensity, yet maximum health benefits. All Diabetes Associations around the world recommend a moderate cardio and resistance training exercise to decrease blood sugar effectively. With Nordic Pole Walking, you have both moderate cardio and resistance training in ONE convenient activity. Many Pole Walkers (not all) with Type 2 diabetes need no medication or less medication on the day they pole walk for about 45-60 minutes. After three months of Nordic Pole Walking, many of them stopped taking medication or reduced to much lower doses. We also found that many patients did not need diabetes medication on the day they Nordic pole-walked. And, for those on oral medication were able to take less. Some clients were able to eliminate their use of medication as long they kept Pole Walking 3 times a week or more, for at least 45-60 minutes.
