Now that we know how dangerous medications can be when it comes to treating your diabetes, now, it is time to learn about some of the best all natural remedies that will help you to actually reverse your diabetes by treating the cause of the problem rather than hiding the symptoms. In this chapter, we will look at how the foods you consume can make all the difference in how you feel.
When it comes to reversing diabetes, you need to find foods that can provide you with energy without relying so much on the processed foods and bad sugars that you ate before. Your body is damaged right now and is having trouble processing sugar because it’s not responding to insulin. Adding in more sugar or glucose will only make matters worse.
There are other sources of energy that you can rely on while the body is cleaning itself out and trying to get back to normal. You can go with the high protein and high fiber diets, and even healthy fats will be beneficial. Some healthy carbs like fruits and vegetables may help; you just need to make sure that all the carbs that you choose are whole and nutritious and not the processed stuff that you are used to in the past.
Over time, this is going to help to cleanse your body and make you feel so much better. Your body will be able to slowly clear out all the bad sugars that have been building up because you’re not adding more, and if you give it a little bit of time, you may be able to heal it enough to have an occasional sweet snack without ruining all the hard work. The amount of time that it takes to get the body back on track will depend on your personal results, as well as your body’s blood glucose level at diagnosis, but when you are able to focus on whole and nutritious foods and delay the sweets and processed foods, you will have a better chance of reaching your overall goals.
