I have looked at diabetes from the standpoint of Natural solutions. Here the summary of my research. You may find this relevant. But do consult a diabetologist before implementing anything on your own.
Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that can be positively impacted by emphasizing a healthy lifestyle, physical activity, and implementing dietary goals that help bring down calorie intake.
Natural solutions for diabetes control and management are a popular option that people with diabetes like to explore.
Several herbs and herbal combinations are used in Ayurveda to treat diabetes. After a detailed scientific review, I have been able to identify four plants – Gymnema sylvestre, Trigonella foenum-graecum, Eugenia jambolana, and Curcuma longa that has the most substantial scientific support for their anti-diabetic properties.
A review of herbs used in TCM shows that Atractylodes macrocephala, Codonopsis pilosula, Dioscorea opposita, Flos lonicerae, and Pueraria lobata retard the progression of diabetes by reducing blood glucose level.
The universe of plants with antidiabetic properties is vast. Scientific studies are restricted mainly to animal trials.
Beyond herbal medicine, there are practices like yoga, tai chi, qi gong, acupuncture in alternate medicine, which have found scientific support as useful tools in diabetes management. This experimental support has extended to human clinical trials.
