Intro: Learn how to treat your diabetes naturally. According to medical professionals, diabetes is an incurable physical disorder usually characterized by high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). Diabetes is referred to as type-1 and type-2. Although a cure may arrive someday, type-1 diabetes cannot be cured by conventional means because the pancreas fails to produce any insulin to lower a diabetics high blood sugar levels. However, type-2 diabetes can be effectively treated or reversed by making dietary changes, consuming blood sugar lowering supplements, participating in physical exercise, and taking your prescription medication because type-2 diabetes is usually due to the negative effects of insulin resistance.
Step 1: Eat a healthy diet. The primary reason why many people develop type-2 diabetes is insulin resistance caused by a high fat diet. According to some medical professionals, a high fat diet clogs up the insulin receptors in your body and some of the sugars in your body cannot enter the cells; thus, your blood sugar rises. If you have the discipline, you should remove meat from your diet or eat less of it because meat contains hormone treated animal proteins and fats that causes insulin resistance in people with a genetic predisposition for diabetes. Therefore, you should begin eating lightly steamed vegetables like brussel sprouts, broccoli, and green beans because these vegetables contain chemicals that are similar to insulin. Additionally, you should begin drinking green tea because green tea thins your blood while making your insulin work better by increasing insulin sensitivity.
Step 2: Take Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) for your diabetes. ALA is a vitamin-like chemical and antioxidant. Potatoes, broccoli, spinach, kidney, liver, and yeast are good sources of alpha-lipoic acid. It is also made in the laboratory for medicinal use. ALA is used for diabetics suffering with nerve-related symptoms such as burning, pain, and numbness in the legs and arms. ALA supplements are used in Germany for the treatment of these symptoms. ALA is used for memory loss, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, liver disease, heart and blood vessels diseases and Lyme disease. ALA is used to treat eye-related disorders, such as damage to the retina, cataracts and glaucoma. ALA work as an antioxidant and it provides protection to the brain and eyes. ALA prevents certain cell damage in the body, while it restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E and vitamin C. ALA sometimes improve the neurons’ function and conduction in diabetes. ALA breaks down carbohydrates to make energy for the other organs in the body.
Likewise, ALC is an effective treatment for Diabetes. ALC is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body. ALC contributes to your body’s energy production. ALC is used for cognitive disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, age-related memory loss, mental confusion, and psychological depression. ALC used for Down syndrome, poor circulation in the brain, cataracts, and nerve pain due to diabetes.
Step 5: Take blood sugar normalization minerals such as chromium picolinate, vanadyle sulfate, zinc, and magnesium. These minerals contribute to the operation, function, and effectiveness of insulin by improving insulin sensitivity throughout your body. Without these minerals insulin cannot do its job correctly.
Step 4: Exercise at least six days of the week for about 30 minutes a day because exercise increases insulin sensitivity. Getting regular exercise will control your diabetes, reduce your risk for heart disease, and lower your high blood pressure. If you have the financial resources, you should join a gym as soon as possible. If you cannot join a gym, you should participate in more physical activities such as taking the stairs, jogging or waking outside, or transforming the basement into your personal gym. Also, work with your physician to determine the safe intensity levels of your exercises and how increased physical activity may affect your medication needs.
Step 5: Take your medication and follow your doctor’s advice because there are many non-medical professionals saying that you can reverse diabetes without medication. This may be true for some people, but not for all people. If insulin or drugs are prescribed to control your diabetes, you should take them as directed by your doctor. When you improve your insulin sensitivity through diet, exercise, and supplementation, only then should you take less medication. You must always check with your physician before making any changes in your medication.
Warning: Although these instructions are beneficial to many diabetics, they should never be substituted for professional medical care. Remember exercising more, dietary changes, blood sugar lowering supplements, and medication can put you at risk for hypoglycemia if your doctor is not informed about your activities.
