Find out what are the 3 Natural Treatments to Control and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes.

Controlling your sugar and diabetes reversal values ​​reduces your risk of blindness, kidney failure, nervous sensitivity, which are common complications of diabetes.

Pay attention to the power of a Food with high healing capacity, Physical Activity and Massage therapy to achieve normal blood sugar values ​​naturally.

1. Food with high healing capacity in Type 2 Diabetes

According to a study conducted at the University of Kentucky, the diet should be composed of whole grains, highlighting oat and barley bran, nuts such as nuts and almonds, legumes such as soybeans, fruits, and vegetables.

These real foods, of plant origin and rich in enzymes are fundamental for the treatment of diabetes, even when there is resistance to insulin and for the prevention of complications.

1.1. It has a low glycemic index

Whole grains and legumes are foods with low glycemic index, which decreases the increase in blood sugar after eating. It also enhances its benefit along with the fibers.

1.2. It is rich in fiber

All plant-based foods are rich in fiber which delays glucose uptake and delays the increase in postprandial glycemia (after meals).

The inclusion of between 60 and 70% carbohydrate sources of fiber improves glycemic control and lowers your cholesterol.

1.3. It has antioxidants and healthy fats

These true foods also contain fiber, antioxidants and unsaturated fats, protective substances for cardiovascular diseases, major complications as we have mentioned of diabetes.

1.4. Provides Vegetable Proteins

Substituting proteins of animal origin for soy proteins or other vegetable proteins decreases the loss of protein by urine (proteinuria), renal hyperfiltration and renal acid load.

Therefore, vegetable proteins reduce blood pressure and in the long term reduce the risk of kidney disease.

1.5. Decrease the use of Medication and Insulin

A diet with true foods, that is, free of processed foods, allowed the suspension of insulin use in 39% of patients and the use of oral hypoglycemic agents in 71% of people with type 2 diabetes.

1.6. Improve your blood tests

In turn, this diet with plant-based foods reduced fasting blood glucose by 24%.

A diet with foods with high healing power along with physical activity improved cholesterol values ​​by 25% and triglycerides by 27% and these values ​​were maintained between 2 and 3 years in which follow-up was carried out.

1.7. Facilitates Weight Loss

The diet with plant-based foods and physical activity facilitated a significant one

2. Physical Activity

Regular exercise improves glucose control and insulin action in people with type 2 diabetes.

In the long term, aerobic exercise, such as walking, cycling, dancing, gymnastics classes, swimming, increases insulin action by 46.3% and lowers blood glucose levels for more than 24 hours after your practice.

Resistance exercise, such as weights, reduces glycemia 24 hours after exercise by 7.1%, even more when there are several continuous and vigorous sessions.

The combination of aerobic and resistance exercise is the most effective option in glycemic control.

According to a study conducted at the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre, training that includes aerobic activity, resistance exercises or both decreases glycosylated hemoglobin in people with type 2 diabetes.

Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a parameter of good glycemic control when its value obtained by a blood test is less than 7%. HbA1c is an indicator of how glycemia varied during the last 6 weeks.

The weekly exercise recommendation is 150 minutes, that is, 1 hour and 30 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, added to resistance exercises 3 times a week.  

It is essential that you consult your doctor before starting a training routine to determine the type of activity recommended according to your general health.

According to the Center for Women’s Health Research, since light activities such as yoga and the increase in daily movement such as using stairs is useful in glycemic control, but they should not replace the aforementioned recommendations.

If you are a person with type 2 diabetes and have more than 300 mg/dl of glycemia before doing physical activity, consider that in these values ​​the body can be in ketosis and cannot use glucose as a source of energy.

Therefore, if you do not have how to measure ketones, the practice of exercise is not recommended.

If you use insulin it is important that you check your blood sugar before exercising, remember that exercise lowers blood sugar so it is important that you eat carbohydrate foods to avoid hypoglycemia. 

3. Massages To control Type 2 Diabetes

According to a study conducted at Karolinska Institutet Sweden, massage therapy in people with type 2 diabetes is useful for controlling blood glucose levels, stress and increasing well-being.

A Swedish massage of the entire body with a duration of 60 minutes, once a week for 10 weeks, decreased glycemia and 1% glycosylated hemoglobin one week after the end of treatment.

Only 1 month of massage throughout the body during the night lowered blood sugar almost 40 mg/dl

Some patients had to decrease their hypoglycemic medication, by medical indication, due to the effect of massage on the decrease in glycemia.

In turn, according to a study carried out in Complementary and Integrative Medicine, massages improve the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy and optimize the absorption of insulin in the application areas.

Diabetic neuropathy is a complication that affects the nerves, is expressed in arms and legs and is characterized by the presence of heat, tingling, itching, pain, restless legs and loss of reflexes.

The use of massage in patients with neuropathy in the lower limbs after one month of application eliminated symptoms in 56% of patients, improved symptoms in 32% and had no effect in 12%.

On the other hand, a 3 to 15-minute massage in the area of ​​insulin application increased insulin levels and decreased glycemia by 8.3% compared to days without massages. In turn, long-term massage in the area reduces glycosylated hemoglobin by approximately 2%.

Massage on the skin is smooth and superficial, without manipulation of the muscles. Natural vegetable oil is used and music is used during the session.

It starts at the back of the legs, back, neck and scalp. Then the face, chest, stomach, upper limbs, lower limbs. 

Starting a natural treatment is important, since according to Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, the lack of long-term food treatment, gymnastics or oral medication increases the risk of hyperglycemia.

According to the University of Udine Italy, postprandial hyperglycemia, sugar after eating, increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases 5 times, such as heart attack, the main cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes.

Another frequent complication that usually occurs in people with type 2 diabetes, according to a study conducted at the University of Texas is liver cancer due to the prolonged use of some of the drugs for diabetes and the use of insulin.
