People who live with Type 1 or 2 diabetes often think they have no alternative to taking medication for the rest of their lives. In fact, there are ways to decrease and even eliminate the need for medication in the fight to control and overcome a diabetic condition. These all-natural strategies not only help to reverse diabetes; they also help to promote general good health and can aid in minimizing other health issues as well.
One of the first lines of defense in the fight to reverse a case of diabetes is the use of regular exercise. An
active lifestyle will help to regulate blood glucose levels, thus reducing the need for oral medications or insulin. Even something as simple as taking a brisk thirty-minute walk or bike ride will make a huge difference in the way the body handles carbohydrates.
Diet is also a key element in controlling and reversing diabetes. At one time, the conventional medical advice was to eliminate all carbohydrates from meals. That is no longer the case. Today, most physicians recommend including complex carbohydrates in limited amounts at each meal. These types of carbs help to provide the body with what it needs to create energy and keep the body going. As a general rule, simple carbohydrates such as processed sugar should be minimized or eliminated in order to get the most benefit.
At the same time, it is important to consume plenty of fresh or frozen foods that are high in nutritional content. Leafy green vegetables are often good sources of nutrients that that are essential for controlling blood sugar levels. Look for foods that have low simple carbohydrates but have plenty of Vitamin A, C and the various B vitamins. Including foods that contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium can also be helpful. Make sure to consume lean meats that are lower in cholesterol as well as low in carbs in order to achieve the optimum benefit.
Nutritional supplements can also prove very helpful when the aim in to reverse the advance of diabetes. Herbs like capsicum, ginger, Hawthorne berry, lobelia, and garlic are known to contain nutrients that help with the reversal of diabetes in many people. Supplements can help to augment the efforts made with eating properly, and make it very easy to maintain a proper blood sugar level without having to resort to medication.
