Diabetes stems from a disorder in the pancreas. Insulin treatments simply treat the symptoms, but you want to go beyond the symptoms and actually treat the cause. Proper diet and nutrition along with herbal aids that support and heal the pancreas will go a long way to help alleviate the pains of diabetes and heal the body.

The most notable reasons why people shifted to alternative medicine is because they are safe to consume (of course with proper guidance) and relatively inexpensive compared to prescription drugs. Although the use of natural products are generally safe, you should still consult a healthcare professional. Diagnosis of the type of diabetes you are dealing with is especially important, and a qualified healthcare professional can be extremely valuable in this regard. And you must bear in mind that whatever kind of treatment you have, it must be coupled with healthy lifestyle that includes diet plan and exercise.

The following are some of the numerous herbal remedies for diabetes.

1. Bitter melon is a tropical vegetable also known as bitter cucumber which is abundant in Asia, Africa and South America. It has a property to lower blood sugar levels but should be taken in small doses for it can cause diarrhea and abdominal upset.

2. Asian ginseng has the capacity to produce insulin.

3. Cinnamon is known to convert glucose to energy thereby increasing glucose metabolism that can be readily absorbed by the blood cells.

4. Onions – clinical studies have shown that it stimulates the production of insulin thereby reducing the levels of blood sugar in the body.

5. Gymnema known to help pancreas produce more insulin and as a result, it can lower blood glucose level.

Juices such as carrot, dandelion, spinach, and cabbage are also extremely helpful against diabetes. We’ve already mentioned diet, but it can’t be overstressed. Those suffering from diabetes should avoid dairy products altogether as well as severely limit meat consumption. Avoid heavily processed foods (almost anything in a box or can at the supermarket as well as fast food restaurants). Your diet should consist almost entirely of fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds eaten either raw or cooked at low heat to preserve the natural enzymes in the food.
