If you’re looking for natural ways to control diabetes as either an alternative or a supplement to traditionally prescribed medication, I have good news for you. There are numerous steps you can take in the privacy of your own home to control the symptoms of diabetes without recourse to jarring chemicals or insulin shots. One of the most effective is the step-by-step plan laid out inside the Diabetes Destroyer by David Andrews.

Until just recently, scientists believed it was impossible to reverse a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes. You were, by all accounts, stuck with it. Today, however, there is growing recognition in the scientific community that under certain conditions dietary changes and targeted exercise can slowly counteract the symptoms of diabetes and work to balance your blood sugar levels.

Even for those who are unable to fully reverse the disease, there are a number of ways you can reduce the symptoms and lessen the physical effects that often accompany diabetes.

So let’s talk very quickly about how to control diabetes naturally and the various things you can do on a personal level to minimize the more serious symptoms associated with the disease.

1. Exercise

To control diabetes naturally, you have to get moving. Studies suggest a rise in the prevalence of diabetes (especially in developed countries) is closely correlated to our increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

There’s absolutely no substitute for good, old-fashioned exercise. It doesn’t take all that much time, either.

A mere 15-20 minutes per day can make a world of difference. Weight gain can often be linked directly to blood sugar imbalance, and exercise works to curb that. So get off of your couch and get moving if you want to beat diabetes naturally!

2. Diet

Diet plays the most crucial role in controlling diabetes naturally. Vegetables are an excellent way to control your blood sugar levels, and recent studies reveal men and women diagnosed with diabetes can greatly reduce their symptoms and control their blood sugar by adopting a Vegan lifestyle.

If going Vegan is a little too extreme for you, find a happy medium of meat and veggies that suits your personal tastes while incorporating the veggies you need to balance your blood sugar levels.

3. Stress

Stress is one of the most often overlooked triggers for a number of potentially debilitating illnesses, diabetes included. Not only is stress linked to all sorts of chemical imbalances within the body, including blood sugar levels, but it also leads to weight gain and insulin resistance.

One of the best ways to reduce stress levels in your life is through meditation. I’m not talking new age chanting; just a few minutes of quiet reflection in a comfortable, peaceful place each day. Take some time out from the hustle and bustle and give your mind and body the rest and relaxation it so desperately needs to keep diabetes under control.
