lower blood sugar levels – naturally

First, we shall highlight some of the easy ways to lower blood sugar levels naturally:

  • Regular Exercise:  Exercising regularly can help increase the insulin sensitivity in your body. This means that your body would be more able to utilize the sugar in your bloodstream. Exercising can also help you lose weight. If your blood sugar control is problematic, you must routinely check your sugar levels. This would give you an idea as to how does your body respond to different activities, and this in turn can help you keep your blood sugar levels from going too high or too low.
  • Diabetic Diet:  A diabetic diet refers to a diet which includes foods suitable for diabetics. These include diabetic foods such as low carb foods, foods with a lower glycemic index, and high fibre foods. All of these ensure that the blood sugar levels do not spike. In this, it is also essential to keep a control on your carb intake. A high carb intake may cause your blood sugar levels to rise. Similarly, choosing foods such as barley, lentils, legumes, seafood, etc., which have a low glycemic index can help you maintain lower blood sugar levels.
  • Control Stress Levels: If you are trying to keep your blood sugar levels under control, it is important for you to keep your stress levels under control. The hormones which are secreted during stress- glucagon and cortisol, cause blood sugar levels to shoot up. Yoga, meditation and exercising can help you keep stress levels low, and in turn, can help your blood sugar levels to be low.
  • Monitor your Blood Sugar: Measuring and monitoring your blood sugar levels regularly can help you determine whether you need to adjust your meals or your medications. 

6 ayurvedic home remedies for diabetes

Now we move on to home remedies for diabetes and Type 2 diabetes treatments. Ayurveda has helped many diabetics manage their blood sugar levels and avoid the onset of major health complications. Some natural remedies for diabetes which you can try are:

  • Bitter Gourd: Known as Karela in the Indian subcontinent, bitter gourd has compounds which allow it to reduce the hyperglycemia, or the increase in blood sugar levels. You can increase the intake of bitter gourd in your diet by consuming it as a cooked vegetable or curry, once a week. You can also consume the juice of the raw vegetable on an empty stomach every morning.
  • Indian Gooseberry: Also called amla, it is one of the richest sources of vitamin C; and is known to help keep blood glucose levels remain balanced. You can consume raw amla everyday, or mix 1 tablespoon of alma juice with one cup of bitter gourd juice and drink it daily. You can also mix 2 tablespoons of alma juice with a cup of water and drink it every morning on an empty stomach.
  • Mango Leaves: Mango leaves are known to be an effective home remedy to treat and manage diabetes. You can sun dry some tender mango leaves, grind them to a fine powder and consume it with water daily in the morning and evening.
  • Fenugreek: A very commonly used herb in the Indian kitchen, fenugreek has many benefits like improving glucose tolerance, lowering blood sugar levels, and stimulating the secretion of glucose dependent insulin. You can consume powdered fenugreek seeds with hot or cold water or milk daily. You can soak 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight and drink this water on an empty stomach in the morning, daily; to bring down your glucose levels.
  • Barley and fibre: Dietary fibre slows down the absorption of fat and sugar from food. This prevents blood sugar spikes, which prevents the risk of type-2 diabetes. One of the best sources of fibre is barley, which has around 6 grams of fibre per cup. This not just improves your blood sugar levels but also reduces inflammation and regulates cholesterol. You can consume barley-based bread or cook it with some vegetables for a delicious snack.
  • Cinnamon: Several studies have shown that cinnamon has a positive impact on not just the blood glucose levels but also cholesterol levels of people with type-2 diabetes. Consuming just one milligram of cinnamon helps in increasing insulin sensitivity. This helps in preventing, managing, and even reversing type-2 diabetes. Soak a 2-inch piece of cinnamon in a cup of water and drink it on an empty stomach the next morning.
  • Drumstick Leaves: Also called as Moringa, the leaves of the drumstick tree are known for its ability to boost energy and maintain blood sugar levels. Drumstick leaves contain nutrients which increases the insulin secretion in the body, and are also known to have anti-inflammatory properties and are rich in antioxidants. You can consume these leaves by adding them to a meal, or a salad, or steam it like spinach.
  • Aloe Vera: Used for its medicinal properties for centuries, aloe vera is also used to lower high blood sugar levels in diabetics. Consuming aloe vera daily helps in attaining better fasting blood glucose levels, lowering HbA1c levels, and reducing body fat levels. Consuming two tablespoons of aloe vera juice daily helps you gain all the benefits.
  • Sunlight: Many studies have shown that low Vitamin D levels also lead to insulin resistance and diabetes. Vitamin D plays an important role in the production of insulin in the body. Exposing yourself to at least 30 minutes of sunlight daily, in the morning, can help you avoid a Vitamin D deficiency. You can also include foods rich in Vitamin D in your daily diet. Some of these are soy milk, orange juice, yoghurt, cheese and cereals.

how to control diabetes through naturopathy treatments?

Some of methods are:

  • Increase Fibre Intake: It has been proven though many studies that foods which have high fibre content slow down the release of glucose from food. Whole fruit, vegetables and beans are examples of such foods.
  • Correcting Mineral Deficiencies: Many people who have been diagnosed withType 2 diabetes are also deficient in minerals such as chromium and magnesium. Broccoli, Kale, chard, collard greens and chard are rich sources of these minerals, Even whole grains, peas, beans, seeds and nuts can be used to correct these mineral deficiencies.
  •  Restrict the White Stuff: Processed or white grains and sugars cause blood sugar levels and insulin levels to spike, which further leads to insulin resistance and weight gain. Eliminating or restricting these “white” products like white bread, white rice, potatoes, white sugar and white pasta, can help prevent the insulin levels and blood sugar levels from increasing.

While all these remedies are natural, it is strongly recommended that you consult your doctor before trying any remedies.
