Natural News Blogs Natural remedies for diabetes and lowering blood sugar » Natural News Blogs
Natural remedies for diabetes include food, herbs and supplements. With 23 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes and millions more undiagnosed, healthy foods and herbal remedies can offer healing health to diabetics and people wanting to lower their blood sugar.
A healthy diet can reverse the signs and symptoms of diabetes and lower blood sugar. The first step to establishing a healthy diet is to limit the intake of simple sugars and carbohydrates, increasing protein intake, and adding fiber. Avoid sugar and corn syrup to help stabilize the blood sugar. Eat a few small meals a day that each contain a small amount of protein and fiber. Fiber slows the uptake of sugar from foods.
