MORE NATURAL REMEDIES FOR DIABETES
Diet:The single most important change any diabetic or person at risk can make is to improve their diet. A Diet containing moderate protein-high fiber and low simple carbohydrates . Another big factor you will lose weight and reduce blood sugar,insulin levels,high blood pressure,also it will give you better health and energy.
Nutritional Supplements:These supplements are very effective in helping to lower blood sugar and insulin levels, reduce cholesterol levels, reduce triglyceride levels, reduce blood pressure, improve energy, and reduce the risk of heart disease.Diabetics should be taking supplements on a daily basis, just to name a few vanadium, alpha lipoic acid cinnamon,banaba leaf.
Supplements can also protect your tissues (kindeys, eyes, blood vessels) from the damage often cause by diabetes. Supplements can also support your immune system, improve circulation,and protect your heart. Diabetes and its complications can be treated or prevented safely without prescription drugs.
Lets take a closer look at some of thes supplements.
ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as thioctic acid or lipoic acid), is a very powerful, natural antioxidant; and is the single most important supplement you can take to treat diabetes.
It turns out that cinnamon is much more than just a spice . . . it has demonstrated great medical application in preventing and combating diabetes. Cinnamon plays the role of an insulin substitute in type II diabetes.
Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) is a plant native to India, Southeast Asia and the Philippines and has several medicinal uses. In many cultures the banaba leaf is brewed into a tea and used as a treatment for diabetes and as a weigh loss aid. Banaba Leaf Extract provides a blood sugar lowering effect similar to that of insulin in that it induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.
CHROMIUM AND VANADIUM ARE TWO VERY IMPORTANT MINERALS FOR DIABETICS
Chromium can actually help insulin transport sugar to the cells. It works to make insulin more effective by "bridging" insulin to cell membranes, thus increasing the number of active insulin receptors, resulting in increased insulin sensitivity.
Exercise: Many studies have shown that exercise is of great benefit to diabetics and can significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Regular physical activity helps lower blood sugar,helps reduce weight, improve insulin sensitivity, strengthen the immune system, improve circulation, lower blood pressure, lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol, raise HDL ("good") cholesterol, and reduce risk of heart disease.
Type 1 ("insulin-dependent" and previously called "juvenile diabetes"). Type 1 diabetes is associated with a malfunctioning pancreas which does not produce adequate amounts of insulin. It develops most often in children and young adults. Type 1 diabetes is traditionally treated with insulin
Type 2 ("noninsulin-dependent" or sometomes called "adult-onset diabetes"). Type 2 diabetes is associated with insulin resistant cells. It is much more common and usually develops in older adults. Type 2 diabetes is now being found at younger ages and is even being diagnosed among children and teens.
The most common causes of type 2 diabetes are poor diet and/or lack of exercise, both of which can result in insulin resistance . . . a condition where the cells in our bodies aren't sensitive enough to react to the insulin produced by our pancreas.
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by a series of chain reactions Too many carbohydrates leads to a spike in blood sugar levels,and this is followed a corresponding rise in insulin levels which casues blood sugar to drop.The pancreas over time"wears out" and can no longer pump out enough insulin to overcome this insulin resistance.
