3 Ways to Reverse Your Diabetes Naturally
Posted on March 15, 2018 by Family Physicians in Trinity
When were you diagnosed with type 2 diabetes? Have you been living with the condition for months or years? Having type 2 diabetes means that your body does not produce enough insulin on its own, or your cells might be ignoring the insulin that you do manage to produce. Monitoring your blood sugar levels and protecting yourself from dangerous drops can be exhausting, but you don’t have to accept your diabetes diagnosis as a act of life.
It is actually possible to reverse your diabetes without insulin or other medications. By adopting healthier lifestyle habits and remaining committed to your wellness, you increase your chances of reducing or eliminating diabetes altogether.
What Causes Diabetes?
Diabetes is an illness related to high blood sugar levels. The majority of Americans with diabetes have type 2 diabetes that is caused by the body’s resistance to insulin. This means that the hormone insulin is still released into the body, but the body does not respond to it efficiently. This leads to fluctuating blood sugar levels, serious side effects, and increased risk of blindness, kidney disease, nerve damage, and obesity.
Adjust Your Eating Habits Strategically
First, begin by removing the foods that cause inflammation and trigger immune responses in your body. The foods to avoid include refined carbohydrates, added sugar, sweet drinks, gluten, cow’s milk, hydrogenated oils, and alcohol. Each has its own downfalls that make blood sugar levels surge and negatively impact hormone levels. Replace those with healthy and productive choices like foods high in fiber, chromium, magnesium, healthy fats, and clean protein. Wild-caught salmon, raw vegetables, goat’s milk, chicken, avocado, and raw almonds are all great options.
Use Holistic Supplements
Rather than relying on diabetes medication, work with your holistic doctor to develop a supplements regime that can support balanced blood sugar levels. Chromium Picolinate is known to improve insulin sensitivity, cinnamon can lower blood sugar levels, and alpha lipoic acid helps turn glucose into fuel for the body and reduce diabetic neuropathy. With the right supplements, you will feel liberated from your diabetes suffering. Don’t forget probiotics! Feeding your gut bacteria will improve your health immediately.
