What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to process insulin or use processed insulin. The food we consume is converted into glucose. Insulin aids the cells in absorbing this glucose. When affected by diabetes, it results in the body being unable to process food properly for energy.it leads to various other complications like weight gain, cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases, etc.

Natural ways to cure diabetes :

WATER:


For people with diabetes, the risk of dehydration is greater. To get rid of the glucose, the kidneys will try to pass it out in the urine, but that takes water. So the higher your blood glucose, the more fluids you should drink, which is why thirst is one of the main symptoms of diabetes.
How to use:                           
Consume 2.5 litres of water a day.

SUNLIGHT:


In recent years, researchers have linked low Vitamin D levels to insulin resistance and diabetes. Studies found that Vitamin D plays a vital role in the production on insulin in the body. The lower your levels of vitamin D, the more prone you are to develop type 2 diabetes.
What to do:
Expose yourself to 30 minutes of daily sun to avoid Vitamin D deficiency.

Include Vitamin D rich foods in your daily diet such as



  •  orange juice, 
  • soy milk,
  • cheese,
  • yogurt 
  • and cereals.

  • Vitamin C:


Vitamin C is not only good for skin but also for diabetes. Recent studies have shown that consuming approximately 600 mg of Vitamin C daily can improve the blood sugar level significantly. People who have chronic diabetes should consume foods rich in Vitamin C every day.
Some foods rich in Vitamin C are

  • amla,
  • orange, 
  • tomato 
  • and blueberry.

Exercise:

One of the main reasons behind type II diabetes is being overweight. Any kind of physical activity, be it

  •  yoga, 
  • Zumba
  • aerobics
  • gymming
  • playing sports
can significantly improve blood sugar level by maintaining your weight. Not only this, walking every day can help to reduce the blood sugar level tremendously.

Sleep:


Diabetes patients should sleep soundly for a minimum of 8 hours per day. This will keep them fit and fresh while releasing stress and anxiety, two more of the primary causes of diabetes.

Low Salt Diet:

A recent study suggests that intake of high-salt diet increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases in diabetics so it is advisable to opt for a low salt diet.

Cinnamon:


People suffering from Type 2 diabetes can benefit considerably from cinnamon. It boosts the insulin production process in the pancreas and lowers the sugar level. You can take cinnamon in several ways. Mix it with your tea or other drinks or directly take it as a powder for at least 40 days to get optimal results.

cloves:


You many not believe it, but cloves are good for diabetics. A research shows that the compounds found in cloves may help keep blood sugar under control. As little as one teaspoon of the super-star spice is enough to reap benefits.

sweet potatoes:


Sweet potatoes have a lower GI than white potatoes. This makes them a great alternative for people with diabetes, as they release sugar more slowly and do not raise blood sugar as much.

Sweet potatoes are also a great source of:

fiber
vitamin A
vitamin C
potassium

Garlic:

Garlic is a popular ingredient in traditional medicines for diabetes and a wide variety of other conditions.


The compounds in garlic may help reduce blood sugar by improving insulin sensitivity and secretion.

In a 2013 study, 60 people with type 2 diabetes and obesity took either metformin alone or a combination of metformin and garlic twice daily after meals for 12 weeks. People who took metformin and garlic saw a more significant reduction in their fasting and post-meal blood sugar levels.

Carrots:


Don’t believe what you hear about carrots rapidly raising blood sugar. While the type of sugar they contain is transformed into blood sugar quickly, the amount of sugar in carrots is extremely low. That’s good news because carrots are one of nature’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which is linked to a lower risk of diabetes and better blood-sugar control. Sick of raw sticks? Make some ‘fries’ by slicing carrots into thin strips, scattering on a baking sheet, and flavouring with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 400°F (200°C) for 40 minutes. Who needs McDonald’s?

Broccoli:


Hey, don’t make that face. Broccoli is filling, fibrous, and full of antioxidants (including a day’s worth of vitamin C in one serving). It’s also rich in chromium, which plays an important role in long-term blood sugar control. If you don’t already love it, either ‘hide’ it in soups, pasta dishes, and casseroles, or sauté it with garlic, soy sauce, and mustard, or dark sesame oil (or any combination thereof) for a taste you’ll fall for.

Nuts:


Because of their high fibre and protein content, nuts are ‘slow burning’ foods that are friendly to blood sugar. And even though they contain a lot of fat, it’s that healthful monounsaturated kind again. Roasting really brings out the flavour of nuts and makes them a great addition to fall soups and entrées. Just spread shelled nuts on a cooking sheet and bake at 300°F (150°C) for 7 to 10 minutes.

Milk and yogurt:


Both are rich in protein and calcium, which studies show may help people lose weight. And diets that include plenty of dairy may fight insulin resistance, a core problem behind diabetes. Go low-fat or fat-free, though. If you don’t like the taste of skim milk, try 1 percent. It’s a little thicker and creamier than skim. Likewise, reduced-fat Greek-style yogurt tends to taste richer than its Canadian counterparts because of how it’s made. Drizzle with honey and imagine you’re on the Mediterranean.

Fish:


The single deadliest complications of diabetes is heart disease, and eating fish just once a week can reduce your risk by 40 per cent, according to a Harvard School of Public Health study. The fatty acids in fish reduce inflammation in the body’a major contributor to coronary disease, as well as insulin resistance and diabetes. And unless you’re pregnant, don’t worry too much about potential chemical contaminants. An exhaustive review of the scientific literature on fish and human health by Harvard researchers led to the conclusion that eating it far outweighs any accompanying risks.

Eggs:


Eggs are another excellent, inexpensive source of high-quality protein’so high, in fact, that egg protein is the gold standard nutritionists use to rank all other proteins. An egg or two won’t raise your cholesterol, and will keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours afterward. Such a magic food deserves a little sleight of hand in its preparation. To flip an egg, spritz the skillet with cooking spray, wait for the egg white to bubble and, in one continuous motion, slide the pan quickly toward you and then forward with a slight upward flick of the wrist. Bow to your guests.

Beans:


When menu planning, think ‘bean cuisine‘ at least twice a week. The soluble fibre in all types of beans (from chickpeas to kidney beans to even edamame) puts a lid on high blood sugar. And because they’re rich in protein, beans can stand in for meat in main dishes. Just watch the sodium content. Always rinse canned beans before using. To save time cooking beans, invest in a pressure cooker. Soaked beans are tender in just 10 to 15 minutes.

Berries:


Think of them as nature’s M&Ms: sweet, convenient, colourful, and satisfying. Berries are full of fibre and antioxidants. The red and blue varieties also contain natural plant compounds called anthocyanins. Scientists believe these may help lower blood sugar by boosting insulin production. Put some in an easy-to-grab location or freeze a handful to suck on or use as ice cubes.

Ivy gourd :

Research suggests that ivy gourd supports healthy blood sugar by acting like natural insulin in your body.


Correct insulin levels are absolutely crucial to blood sugar level health. That’s because insulin gathers sugar from the blood and carries it to cells where it serves as their energy source. Consuming ivy gourd boosts your body’s sugar metabolism, because this plant is just as effective as biologically generated insulin at transporting sugar to your cells.

  1. I love this! My grandpa had diabetes, but because my grandma watched over his diet so well, he never had to take insulin until (ironically) he was in the hospital and eating whatever he wanted under the doctor's care.
    Great article and so important!
