While there are numerous peer-reviewed studies on the effect of pranayama on blood sugar, can anyone point me to any such study on shankaprakshalana (a yogic way of intestinal cleaning involving drinking 4-5 litres of water)?
In recent times, Swami Ramdev has been popularising this old approach (which has been used by several yoga/naturopathy centres, btw). I've tried this a few times in the past, but only once since I became diabetic -- and then forgot to test the sugar. Sw. Ramdev says he has thousands of cases of people whose blood glucose readings fell dramatically after this practice.
Anyone on this forum with personal experience of its effect on blood sugar or who know of any scientific studies (esp. on PubMed)?
