Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition that a huge percentage of the world population is grappling with. Diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar levels; it occurs when the insulin production in the body is inadequate or the body’s cells do not respond well to the insulin produced, or a combination of both factors. According to the Diabetes Foundation of India, the country has about 50.9 million people afflicted with diabetes, and this figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025, making India the ‘diabetes capital’ of the world.
Diabetes is a condition that will stay life long, and therefore its optimal management is important to prevent it from affecting various organs of the body and creating further complications.
One school of thought believes that diabetes is a lifestyle disease. What you eat and how you lead your lifestyle contributes to the disease. This is one reason why researchers spend a lot of time studying and identifying plants and foods that can help to control and cure the ailment. Of late, there has been considerable research and interest in natural systems of medicine in the treatment of chronic ailments such as diabetes. The reasons are several such as the lack of a permanent solution for the disease provided by allopathic treatment, increased side effects of allopathic drugs, high cost of the drugs and so on. Globally, scientists and researchers are therefore spending time and money on researching healing botanicals.
Turmeric, for example, is one botanical that has been used as part of ancient medicine, for its medicinal benefits on several ailments with a foundation in inflammation, including diabetes. Scientists believe that inflammation is an important underlying cause of diabetes. The most active compound of turmeric, curcumin, known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, bestows turmeric with its medicinal qualities, making it a suitable natural medicine for diabetes. Curcumin has been researched as the wonder botanical that can stabilize blood sugar levels, boost insulin sensitivity, and control all further complications related to diabetes. Some other botanicals that have shown promise as natural medicine for diabetes are fenugreek, ginseng, bitter melon, known to lower blood sugar levels and maintain blood glucose control.
Ensuring your blood glucose levels always remain within a normal range is the critical step in the management of diabetes. The good news is that diabetes can be managed by following a natural treatment path, and a balanced lifestyle that includes a good diet, exercise and rest. There are several natural supplements that can help to manage and lower blood glucose levels but not all are efficacious. You must ensure the therapeutic benefits of the natural supplements you take are absorbed well by your body so that the benefits of the botanicals can actually help in healing the condition. The best part of adopting a natural treatment path is that there are no side effects!
