What are the common things that you hear about Diabetes? It is a chronic and progressive disease and you require life-long medications. Once you get a diagnosis, it is one big life sentence. We are going to tell you that this is a big fat lie.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes?

Diabetes is rather a dietary disease that can be treated in natural and simpler ways. Type 2 Diabetes is reversible with diet and lifestyle changes and not mere medications. In order to understand a disease, you need to find its root cause. Just think about how you have to zoom into the right domain to find your desired destination in a google map. The same way when looking at Diabetes, we need to narrow down to its root cause and that is Insulin Resistance.

In a nutshell, insulin resistance is not referring to lower insulin levels in our body, rather it says that there is too much insulin in our body and our pancreas is tired of responding to it. However, modern medicine treats Diabetes by prescribing medications that put Insulin again back into the system. Giving more Insulin will not make the disease better, it makes it worse.

So, what is it that can be done towards the cure of Diabetes? Go the natural way and follow the below simple steps to treat Type 2 Diabetes:


4 Natural Ways to Treat Type 2 Diabetes

1. Intermittent Fasting

Isn’t that starvation? No, we are not asking you to starve, instead voluntarily withhold food at the right intervals to enable your body to burn off the excess body fat. This ancient secret of health carries with it huge benefits if done in a safe and right manner. Plus, it will save you time and money.

Life is all about balance – the yin and yang. The same applies to eating and fasting. The flip side of eating is fasting. When we eat, energy is produced and stored for later use and insulin is the primary hormone involved in this process.

   Food Intake  –   Increase in Insulin –  Store Sugar and Produce Fat in Liver

Now, this process goes in reverse when we fast. Insulin levels fall inducing the body to start burning the stored energy.

    No Food – Decrease in Insulin – Burn stored sugar and fat

There are several intermittent fasting regimens that can be used – you can fast longer or shorter depending on your requirements. For example a 16:8 fasting regime involves an 8-hour eating window along with 16 hours of fasting time. You can consume 2-3 meals within the time period of 11.00 am to 7.00 pm or time it according to your preference.

2. Low-Carbohydrate, High-Fat Diet

The LCHF or ketogenic diet follows a low-carb regime and concentrates more on healthy proteins and fats. Since high insulin is the root cause of type 2 diabetes, a high-fat diet helps to bring the insulin down. While carbohydrates and sugar cause a major spike in insulin and blood sugar level, fats have a minimal impact on both insulin and sugar. Therefore a low carbohydrate and high-fat help to control and reverse insulin resistance. Apart from weight loss benefits, Ketogenic diets come with loads of benefits. Incorporate the below steps in your diet:

Reduce your intake of added sugars.
Decrease your consumption of refined grains.
Moderate your protein intake.
Increase your consumption of healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, nut flours, ghee, butter, olive oil, coconut oil, eggs, fatty fish, and meat
Increase your consumption of fiber and vinegar.
Consume unprocessed real food. Make sure you do not consume refined, vegetable oils, and transfats.

3. Losing Weight

Easier said than being done, losing weight can actually reverse Type 2 Diabetes effectively. Studies have proven that losing up to 15kg weight produces total remission of Type 2 Diabetes along with other health benefits as well.

Why is this so? Type 2 Diabetes is caused by the increase of fat clogging the liver and secondarily with the pancreas resistance to Insulin Secretion. So, as the fat levels drop, it signals the return of normal function of the liver and pancreas.

4. Ayurvedic Approach with Natural Herbs

Rather than injecting Insulin into your bloodstream, the Ayurvedic approach tends to strengthen your liver and make it capable of expelling the excess blood sugar and aid in insulin secretion. Some of the natural herbs used in this approach are Gymnema Leaf or gurmar which literally mean the destroyer of sugar and Cassia Cinnamon that contain polyphenols to maintain insulin sensitivity.

Other herbs like Fenugreek and Bitter Goard can also be used to strengthen the metabolic system. These time-tested ingredients have been proven to support healthy glucose levels and correct imbalances in the body.

Be your Own Evidence

Move away from the dogmatic propaganda of the pharmaceutical industry or poorly updated experts and take command of your own health. Dietary and lifestyle changes along with the use of natural Ayurvedic herbs is an easy way to reverse Type 2 Diabetes. Try it for yourself and experience its benefits.
