Best tips to Reverse Diabetes Naturally
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control, there are over 29 million people in the country diagnosed with diabetes. There are an additional 86 million adults who have higher than normal blood sugar, but have not been diagnosed with the disease. That’s touching on almost a 3rd of the United States. Why? How?
Some of diabetes reversal is common sense. We’ll take a look at these, but there are also a few remedies for diabetes which may surprise you. Here are the best tips to reverse diabetes and to keep your blood sugar under control.
Foods to Eliminate from Your Diet
If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, you and your doctor have reviewed a list of necessary dietary changes. That list can seem long and daunting. That having been said, there are a few categories of food which you should avoid.
First, slow down on the drinking. Alcohol has a huge impact on your blood sugar, and will damage your liver. But how does alcohol impact your blood sugar? It comes down to how alcohol is made. Ethanol is commercially produced using a process called fermentation. Many other alcohols can be made this way, but are more likely to be produced by man-made routes – from natural gas, oil or even coal. Fermentation is a process in which yeast breaks down sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
Remember that any damage to your liver will put undue stress on your kidneys, which are critical to the management of insulin in your body.
Secondly, you’re going to want to cut refined sugars out of your diet. Candy, soda and other sweets need to go. You might ask yourself if organic cane sugar is okay – the anwer is NO! Our bodies were not designed to be eating sugar like that. If you do eat organic sugar, you still need to take it easy on it.
There’s also no evidence that using artificial sweeteners will be beneficial to you, so try to cut out the diet drinks as well. Artificial sweeteners will NOT survive too much longer – they will die in about 5-10 years when the evidence of them gets out along with the dangers of aspartame. In fact, it has been shown that even artificial sweeteners still trigger a glucose response inside the body, which is the same thing that happens when you drink sugar.
If you have to eat something sweet, it MUST be sweets found in nature. Organic maple syrup, organic honey, organic fruit or coconut. Do not use sugar packets or artificial sweeter packets anymore.

Finally, eliminate GMO foods from your diet. These foods are known to cause kidney and liver damage, and may increase the symptoms of diabetes. Eat clean, organic and GMO free foods when at all possible. Yes, this may require you to shop at better grocery outlets, but eating healthy is cheaper than stacks of medical bills.
Last but not least, eliminate foods that break down into sugar as well – WHITE rice, WHITE bread, WHITE pasta – and try to cut down on the carbs. Eat a diet consisting of organic meat, organic nuts, organic fruits and veggies with minimal grains. Look up the paleo diet.
If you are able to do these things right now, then decrease your medication for diabetes while you do the 2 things above and see what happens. If it were me, I would eliminate my medication completely – but check with a holistic doctor on what they feel is best for your specific needs.
You need to understand something if you are someone who takes their blood sugar all day and monitors it. Eating will raise your blood sugar, especially carbs. So don’t freak out if your blood sugar is lower and then raises when you eat. You just ate! Everyone’s blood sugar raises when they eat! So you need to understand that, and monitor heavily after you begin eating these organic foods. You should stop taking insulin or your diabetes medication if you are eating a full organic and non-GMO diet with no refine sugars and little carbs. Then you should go to a NEW doctor (because your old will continously tell you that you still need to take medicine) and ask the new doctor if they can check you for normal blood work, just like a new patient who was never diagnosed. Remember that once you get this STAMP that you are a diabetic, you label yourself as one and that is half of the problem. Start over and pretend you’re not one.
Now of course, I am not a doctor so I can only tell you what I’ve seen. But remember to find a holistic or naturopathic doctor and start over. Your current doctor will label you until you die. A fresh opinion with a complete change in diet is the best thing to start with.
While some foods may increase blood sugar, others may reduce the impact. Try foods which are high in fiber. Fiber can help to flush toxins and sugars out of your body.
Try to incorporate more fish in your diet instead of beef. Fish and birds are better than cows and is easier on the stomach for digestion. Be sure it’s wild caught fish – stores are required to include this information on the packaging. Fish like salmon are high in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which act as an anti-inflammatory. This will reduce some of the effects of elevated blood sugar.
Finally, try cooking with coconut oil or organic olive oil. Coconut oil can help regulate the triglycerides in your body, as well as regulate the markers for diabetes found in people who have been diagnosed.
Supplements to Regulate Diabetes
In addition to the addition (and elimination) of foods, you can also use supplements to reverse diabetes. The University of Maryland published a report about exactly this.
There are herbs and supplements which can help to lower your blood sugar. Chromium and magnesium are among these, and both are available in an easy to swallow pill from most nutrition and drug stores.
Certain teas can also help to regulate blood sugar. Gymnema, cinnamon, fenugreek and ginseng, when ingested in tea or capsule form, can help reduce the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. Here is a list of stuff that will detox you if you’ve had a cheat meal:
- Benzonite Clay
- Fennel Powder
- Licorice Root
- Irish Moss
- Slippery Elm Powder
- Milk Thistle
- Kyolic Garlic
Type 2 diabetes is prevalent in America. And there are a growing number of adults who are diagnosed with the disease each year. But by making changes to your lifestyle and by using these supplements, you can lessen the symptoms of diabetes, or reverse diabetes entirely.
Act now before it’s too late! And finally, stay away from fast food! Why? Because GMO ingredients that are sugar substitutes like high fructose corn syrup is one of the biggest root causes to diabetes in the first place! Also, please stop drinking sodas. Do I need to even mention this? Water, water, water.
