Reverse Diabetes Naturally

There are lots of stories that can be found online of people stating that they have changed their lives and improved their health for the better because they have discovered ways to reverse diabetes naturally, but is this actually possible? When talking about reversing diabetes, it actually means that the person suffering is not as dependable on diabetes medication anymore and some people find that they don’t need to take their medication anymore. However, diabetes is a serious illness and all care should be taken seriously, so it is very important to speak your doctor before coming off any medication or changing your lifestyle in an endeavour to reverse diabetes.

Diabetes is a serious and life changing diseases. A diabetic person has high blood glucose, also known as hyperglycemia. After eating a meal, your body breaks down the food and turns it into glucose, a sugar form. Your body will then turn this into energy with the help of insulin. If you body doesn’t produce this insulin that is when diabetes becomes a problem.

Now it’s important to know that there are two types of diabetes.

  • Type 1 – an autoimmune condition.
  • Type 2 – stems from lifestyle choices.

There is no way to reverse type 1 diabetes, but maybe with a few lifestyle changes it may be possible to reverse diabetes type 2.

So what changes to your lifestyle can you possibly make to reverse diabetes type 2?


1. Firstly, cut out refined sugars.

Fruit juices and sugary pops enter the bloodstream quickly, causing a spike in blood glucose. It’s best to avoid these sugary drinks to not increase glucose. It’s also a good idea to cut out sugary snacks like sweets, lollipops and chocolate. Also, processed foods contain more sugar, salt, and artificial chemicals that are not good for a person without diabetes let alone with it. Cutting these out of your diet and eating wisely by replacing them with organic, homemade meals is a good way to cut out extra sugars, salts and fats from your diet.


2. Avoid alcohol intake.

Alcohol increases blood sugar, which like refined sugars, is also very dangerous. Cutting out alcohol or limiting your intake is a good lifestyle choice to make when suffering with diabetes.


3. Introduce Omega-3 fats to your diet.

You can find omega-3 in Krill oil, Mackerel, Kippers and Smoked Salmon.


4. More fibre!

Introduce more fibre to your diet as foods high in fibre such as oats, lentils and beans slow down the release of glucose, so you won’t have a quick peak of glucose, which is dangerous to a diabetic.


5.Control your weight

A very important thing to consider when reversing your diabetes is your weight. Type 2 diabetes is linked with your weight, so keeping a healthy weight and maintaining it is very important. This is a challenge, especially when insulin can cause you to gain weight, but losing weight can reduce the symptoms of diabetes.


6. Get a decent amount of sleep.

Lack of sleep can raise stress levels, anxiety levels and blood sugar. This will encourage insulin resistance and you might start to find that you put on weight.


Of course, it’s very important to remember that your doctor can give you the best advice on how to reverse or at least ease your symptoms of diabetes, but changing your lifestyle could possibly be the answer.

Keep a check on your blood sugar/glucose levels and as you make these easy lifestyle choices, see if they make a difference. Hopefully you will see your glucose levels drop.



Ask yourself some important questions: “Am I eating the right things?” “Am I exercising enough?” “Am I getting enough sleep?” These are important questions not just for a diabetic, but for everybody. Diabetes is not a disease you are born with, but Type 2 begins because of your lifestyle choices. So if possible, it’s a great idea to find ways to prevent it from happening to you or your children.
