Diabetes Action Plan - The Natural Way

  • Know the early signs of diabetes. Get the proper annual tests to be sure.
  • The goal of every self-care and diabetes treatment is to keep the blood glucose level as close to normal as possible. Eating small and frequent meals of fresh foods that have low glycemic index rating is one of the best ways to restore the blood sugar.
  • Eliminate or lower the consumption of simple carbohydrates, junk foods, tobacco, caffeine and alcohol.
  • Exercise regularly and reduce stress for both help maintain blood sugar level as close to normal as possible.
  • Drink enough pure water every day.
  • Think of the supplements that may help like vitamins E and C, vitamin B-complex, magnesium, potassium, chromium, essential fatty acids, alpha lipoid acid, CoQ10 and vanadium.
  • Any of the following herbs can help: bitter melon, astragalus, garlic, fenugreek, ginseng, huerque and Gymnema sylvestre.

Combining the aforementioned natural cures with the care of a physician who is holistically oriented can provide a great benefit. The following have been found to help treat or prevent diabetes: cleansing, professional nutritional counselling, oxygen therapy, chelaton therapy, Ayurveda, parasite and food allergy testing and traditional Chinese medicine.

Prevention is a life-long process that requires commitment. Whether one is just pre-disposed to develop diabetes or is already managing the condition, committing to the above action plan will help the symptoms. There are reports that type 2 diabetes can be reversed.

An old lady offers the bus driver some peanuts.

Old Lady: Do you like peanuts?

Bus Driver: Yes, do. (Accepts the peanuts and happily eats them.)

Old Lady: Do you want some more?

Bus Driver: Yes, but why don't you eat them?

Old Lady: I can't chew because I don't have teeth.

Bus Driver: Then why do you buy them?

Old Lady: I just love the chocolate around them.

Question: What Are the Healthy and Life-Lengthening Foods?

Answer:Healthy foods that can lengthen one's life are those that keep us healthy and make us live longer. Instead of pounds, they pack on the years.

Fruits and Vegetables - To lower the blood pressure, eat five of them every day. Make sure, each serving is at least the equivalent of 3/4 cups.

Fish - Eat three servings of fish (broiled wild salmon or baked trout) each week. This will reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease by 14%. Mind you, those who are of childbearing age and young kids should only have two servings of fish a week and should avoid large fishes like albacore tuna, swordfish and shark.

Nuts - Two ounces sprinkled on salad or cereal will reduce the bad cholesterol by 14%.

Garlic - Adding on clove of garlic, either raw or cooked. every day to salad, pasta or any casserole will lower the bad cholesterol. Doing this can reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease by 38%.
