Most helpful Homeopathic Remedies for Diabetes

Glucose is the main source of energy for your body. It not only helps make up our body cells, muscles and tissues but also acts as fuel for our brain. The glucose or sugar levels have to be maintained fairly constant in the body. The excess of sugar in the body leads to various health problems.

Causes of Diabetes

The cause of diabetes varies from person to person. It is considered a genetic disorder and runs in families. However, anybody can suffer from it, even if it does not run in your family. Some risk factors include sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, extremely stressful life, lack of sleep, etc. These factors increase the likelihood of getting diabetes.

Types of Diabetes

There are two types of diabetes - type 1 and type 2. There is also a stage called prediabetes which is reversible diabetes. It is mainly caused during pregnancy where sugar levels are higher than normal but not so high as to classify as diabetes. In such people, usually, the sugar level comes back to normal once the baby is delivered.

Type 1 diabetes - Usually, it appears in childhood or teenage life. However, it can occur at any age.

Type 2 diabetes - Most of the time, it appears at an older age, that is, after 40 years. However, this type can also be seen at any age of life.

Symptoms of Diabetes

The symptoms experienced by each individual depend on how much the sugar is increased in your body. The most common symptoms are:

  • Frequent urination.
  • Increased thirst.
  • Increased perspiration.
  • High appetite or increased hunger.
  • Weight loss without any diet or without any reason.
  • Fatigue.
  • Wounds take a longer time to heal than usual.
  • Prone to frequent infections.
  • Presence of ketones in the urine.

Conventional Medicine Vs Homeopathy

Millions of people have been suffering from diabetes and its related complications. And millions of people have been taking conventional medicines for this problem. We all know there is no cure for diabetes and hence patients have to keep on taking the medicines every day, either in the form of tablets or Insulin. The practitioners of conventional prescribe Insulin in the treatment of diabetes. This is more like a replacement therapy where diabetes becomes a lifelong disease and patients have to take Insulin every day. This is so troublesome as well as expensive.

In such cases, homeopathy can be very effective in treating diabetes. Homeopathic medicines mainly act on the pancreas, allowing it to produce adequate amounts of insulin. There are so many best homeopathic remedies given for diabetes.

Can Diabetes Be Cured by Walking?

It is one of the most basic forms of exercise and is highly effective in reducing blood glucose levels. Sometimes patients on insulin might find it difficult to reduce their blood glucose levels even after increasing the insulin dose. In such cases, walking is helpful in bringing back the glucose levels close to normal.


What Is the Effect of Fasting on Diabetes?

Some studies indicate that fasting may be helpful for diabetic patients. However, The American Diabetes Association does not recommend it as a method of diabetes management. Rather it suggests lifestyle changes, including medical nutrition therapy and more physical activity, as the cornerstones for weight loss and good diabetes control.


Which Natural Herb Can Be Used to Decrease Blood Sugar Levels?

Should Eggs Be Avoided in Diabetes?

The American Diabetes Association regards eggs as a great food for diabetic patients as they are a great source of protein (one egg contains seven grams of high-quality protein) and other essential nutrients. In the past, diabetic patients were advised to limit their egg intake due to the cholesterol content, as these patients are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Therefore eggs can be beneficial for diabetic patients with no or low risk of cardiovascular disease.

The eating plans for diabetes patients have certain common things, like eating the right amount of food at the right time. The best diet for diabetes means eating healthy food from all food groups, like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and non-fat or low-fat dairy products.


What Are the Three Major Tips That Must Be Followed by a Diabetic Patient?

Diabetic patients should make changes in their lifestyle to avoid future complications of the disease. Three major tips that must be followed include:
- Exercise or Increased Physical Activity: It helps control blood glucose levels and enhances the body’s sensitivity to insulin.
- Losing Extra Weight: Losing weight decreases the risk of diabetes. One study conducted on a large group showed that the risk of diabetes is reduced by 60 percent by reducing 7 percent of the body weight through diet and exercise.
