Diabetes, Part 2: Natural remedies for overcoming diabetes

· Health

There are a number of herbs and other natural remedies that a person can use to improve their chances of beating diabetes. For herbs, two that are particularly effective, according to reports, are sage and milberry. If you do not want to take too many pills, even natural, non-chemical ones, you can always steep these herbs in tea. Granted, this form of the medicine is weaker than a capsule; however, it is good to test it a little, and more inexpensive, then you can see if your body has a good reaction to it.


Pills that help lower blood sugar include PBX. This is an excellent source of fibre, which helps to slow down the rate at which carbohydrates travel through your system. This in turn helps to lower the glycemic index, which lowers blood sugar. PBX is known as a super fibre.


Fenugreek seeds are also very helpful. Karela juice and neem leaves are also cures that have been used extensively in India to help people reverse Type 2 diabetes (this article applies only to Type 2 diabetes, not Type 1 diabetes). Neem leaves cannot be ingested, but they can be boiled and later steeped in tea, etc. They also come in capsule form, but I think they can be fairly hard to come by.


Cinnamon and lemon juice are also helpful. For a treat, especially if you are missing dessert, you can put hot water in a cup, squeeze some lemon juice into it, and according to taste, add some stevia, one of the best natural sugars you can find. In fact, stevia even lowers blood sugar to a certain extent. Spreading cinnamon on toast (whole wheat, of course!) is another trick to add flavour to an otherwise boring snack.


As I said in my last article, Vitamins B and D are also helpful in reducing blood sugar levels. The minerals chromium and magnesium are also good. I am going to be taking Vita Vim, which combines chromium, magnesium, Vitamins B and D, zinc, etc. I am also taking Super Foods Supreme, which is a collection of antioxidants, digestive enzymes, fruit and vegetable blends, silica, etc.
