Natural remedies for diabetes08/07/2021, SHA Wellness Clinic
In order to ensure that any treatment for diabetes has a beneficial impact on your body, it is important to focus on improving your pancreas' performance. This can be done by following an appropriate diet and nutrition guidelines.
Every year new cases of diabetes are diagnosed, and with the lockdown and the resultant change in lifestyle, there have been more cases. In the case of Type 2 diabetes in which insulin or oral agents aren’t administered and in which eating habits are especially important.
To keep your Type2 diabetes under control there are a few natural remedies you can follow as below.
- Eat only naturally occurring sugar which can be found in fruits and vegetables
- Eliminate refined sugar, honey and fructose entirely from your diet
- Get food rich in fibre that can be found in whole grains, fruits and vegetables because they help to reduce your cholesterol and triglycerides levels
- Be prepared and make 5-6 meals daily and keep a fixed schedule to avoid hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia situations
- Ensure that you do exercise regularly on a daily basis. This will help you to control your weight and regulate your blood sugar levels
- There are herbs that if taken with consideration can help reduce your diabetes
- Eucalyptus: It helps lower blood sugar and urine levels
- Salvia: It stimulates bile secretion and reduces the content of glucose in the blood
- Green nettle: It increases pancreatic insulin secretion
- Bean pods: They reduce glucose and urine levels.
With these four medicinal herbs, you can prepare an infusion and drink it 3 times a day. It can be sweetened with stevia which not only provides a sweet flavour, but also increases your body's glucose tolerance.
Food is one of the main pillars of people’s health and even more for those with diabetes. A healthy and balanced diet can help us face the day with energy and courage.
