Diabetes is a syndrome of metabolism, resulting to abnormality of high blood sugar level. It is usually due to a combination of hereditary and environmental causes. This abnormality may lead to other health problems and that is another why you should take action to manage and treat it.
Conventional treatment is focused on fixing the symptom of elevated blood sugar, rather than addressing the underlying disease and it is doomed to fail in most cases. Treatments that concentrate merely on lowering blood sugar while raising insulin levels can actually worsen rather than remedy the actual problem of metabolic miscommunication that is at the root of diabetes. It just trades one evil for another.
And according to Dr. Mercola Natural Health Article, the solution to diabetes has been available ever since and remarkably simple. Here are some tips to cure or prevent diabetes:
- Severely limit or eliminate sugar and grains in your diet.
- Eat a diet that’s right for your nutritional type. While nearly all type 2 diabetics need to swap out their grains for other foods, some people will benefit from using protein for the substitution, while others will benefit from using more vegetable-only carbohydrates. Therefore, along with reducing grains and sugars, determining your nutritional type will give you some insight into what foods you should use to replace the grains and sugars.
- Exercise regularly and at the appropriate intensity. It increases the sensitivity of your insulin receptors, causing the insulin already present to work much more effectively, so your body doesn't need to produce as much. I’ve discussed how to use exercise to your best advantage in this past article.
