Diabetes and Herbs
The treatment of diabetes at home with herbs is an old method, like humanity itself. Herbs can effectively supplement the diet, defeat fluctuations in blood sugar levels and keep it at an acceptable level. The incurability of diabetes should be recognized by people who are obese, as well as by all, so far, healthy potential future diabetics (people at risk), and sometimes seek the help of herbs in preventive measures.
There are several types of herbal medicines, i.e., made from herbs, which, however, cannot be considered as a substitute for medicines, but perceived as a supplement. It is not recommended to use several herbs at once or products from several manufacturers at the same time. It is recommended to try using herbs gradually.
The most common natural remedies used to treat diabetes include beans, blueberries and galega, upright bloodroot and others, which are usually part of tea blends.
For medicinal purposes, green fruits are used, which are collected at a time when they are already beginning to ripen, and the beans can be taken out, but are still soft and juicy, not dry. The most valuable substance that contains beans is called “plant-based insulin,” thanks to which beans, along with blueberries, are the main component of herbal diabetes products. It can be used independently. When mixed with other active herbs, such as blueberries, the bean effect is enhanced. In principle, all legumes are reliable and safe plants that do not have negative consequences; they can be consumed in the long term.
If you are interested in the question of how to cure diabetes without pills, pay attention to delicious blueberries, which are the most popular fruit present in the season and markets. Consume it as much as possible, because it contains a large concentration of vitamins, minerals and other beneficial substances. In addition to a pleasant taste, blueberries are a first-class preventive medicine for the whole body. Blueberry leaves, which are collected even before the flowering of the plant, also have unsurpassed qualities (they can be purchased at the pharmacy in bulk form and in bags). Blueberry leaves lower blood sugar, so they are a great helper for all patients with diabetes. The advantages of blueberries are also confirmed by the fact that it can be consumed in unlimited quantities, fruits and tea from the leaves are also an excellent preventive measure.
Although the name of the plant “medicinal” ranks it among the highest category of medicinal plants, galega is rarely used in our country. However, it is a grass that is present in the wild, and is quite beautiful. The leaves of the galega are collected at the beginning of flowering, until the stage of full flowering, later they are not collected. Galega has proven therapeutic applications. The plant significantly reduces blood sugar and, therefore, should not be missed as tea against diabetes. As a single drug, a galega can be taken only occasionally, an overdose can cause poisoning symptoms, mixed with other herbs, however, it can be used for a long period of time.
The cinquefoil is erect
This is a proven and effective plant with high blood sugar.
The pharmaceutical market offers a large number of herbal mixtures for the treatment of diabetes, and most of them contain a large percentage of upright potentilla.
A few more medicinal plants for patients with diabetes mellitus:
In the spring, during the flowering period of dandelions, chew 10 stems of the plant per day, slowly suck out the juice, and throw the rest. Dandelion juice reduces blood sugar, and also positively affects the liver.
An easy way to keep your blood sugar low is to consume 3-5 sage leaves daily. They can be ground in a small amount of water or consumed as part of a salad. During the off-season, you can replace fresh sage leaves with tincture.
A proven folk remedy for diabetics is a cup of sauerkraut or fresh cabbage juice on an empty stomach. Thus, you can start a day very well, especially in winter, as this vegetable supplies the body with a lot of vitamin C and other necessary substances. You can use fresh juice of white cabbage in an amount of 1-2 cups per day.
Fresh celery juice (100-200 ml daily) helps lower blood sugar. In its use, the previous recipe for using cabbage is used, both of these vegetables can alternate.
This plant, or rather root crops, comes from Peru. However, tea imported from Peru is available in specialized stores. The biggest problem for diabetics is known to be rapid changes in blood sugar. Consumption of decoction from the yacon allows you to solve this problem and prevent hypoglycemia. Tea from leaves is an excellent complement to diabetes therapy, as well as a prophylactic against this disease. It is recommended to drink 0.5 liters per day for 3 months, a repeat of the course - 2 times a year. In most cases, visible effects are noticeable after a month of use.
Diabetes and Aloe Vera Juice
After a series of studies, there was no doubt that aloe vera has a significant antidiabetic effect. In addition to helping protect pancreatic beta cells, it also lowers blood sugar. In clinical studies, it was found that aloe in the control of blood glucose is as effective as the antidiabetic agent glibenclamide. The use of aloe also has the effect of lowering triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in the blood. We can not ignore the favorable effect, which consists in the absence of weight gain, as is usually the case with drugs.
For example, one study conducted by ACTIValoe demonstrated a decrease in blood sugar levels in diabetics in approximately 44% of cases. Obviously, such effects should not be expected after a week or a month of use, they appear after the use of aloe vera juice on a regular basis for 3-6 months.
Aloe vera helps diabetics fight free radicals
The diabetic organism cannot fully use the vital vitamins C and E. These vitamins are one of the important antioxidants. Simply put, a diabetic body has a reduced ability to protect itself from free radicals. Aloe vera contributes to a better and more efficient use of vitamins C and E, therefore, its use is very useful.
