Managing your Sugar Naturally
When we eat, especially carbohydrate foods, the foods are broken down into glucose. Ordinarily, the pancreas should secrete a hormone called insulin that would help get the glucose into the body cells so it can be used for energy. But when diabetes sets in, one of two things usually happens; either the body cannot make use of the insulin secreted by the pancreas properly, thereby leading to an accumulation of glucose in the bloodstream, or the pancreas doesn’t even produce insulin at all, which would still lead to glucose accumulation in the bloodstream.
Either way, there is usually an accumulation of glucose in the bloodstream as a result of diabetes. This is what then leads to high blood sugar. Diabetes is of two types; type 1 and type 2.
Type 1 Diabetes
This type of diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes no insulin secretion by the pancreas. It usually occurs in children and adolescents, and it accounts for roughly 10% of all diabetes cases. The pancreas cannot produce insulin mostly because the immune system fights insulin producing cells in the pancreas.
It is also majorly caused by genetic conditions. Sufferers need regular insulin injections to stay alive.
Type 2 Diabetes
This type of diabetes is the more common type, accounting for 90% of all diabetes cases. For this type, insulin is secreted by the pancreas, but it is not used properly by the body. This is called Insulin Resistance.
This is because the insulin produced is unable to successfully inject the glucose in the bloodstream into the body cells. It is majorly a disease that springs up via bad lifestyle choices when it comes to one’s diet.
Inflammation Management for Diabetic Patient
Recent studies have shown that inflammation does have a connection with the development of diabetes.
Ordinarily, inflammation is the response of the body to fighting infections or toxic substances in the body, all in an attempt to heal itself. But with diabetes, inflammation often occurs internally.
As a diabetic patient however, managing inflammation can be done in two simple ways;
Regular exercise, even walking or jogging for 30 to 40 minutes in a day helps a lot with inflammation management as a diabetic. Exercise engages your muscles, and causes an increase of anti-inflammatory chemicals into the body.
- Consumption of the Right Diet
Eating the right foods will also help you manage inflammation properly. The right food in this case are foods with anti-inflammatory qualities like avocados, fruits and vegetables, etc.
Vitamin D and Diabetes
Vitamin D is called the Sunshine Vitamin, and for good reason; when we receive sunlight, the cells in our bodies use a vitamin D receptor to convert a cholesterol derivative into Vitamin D.
A commonality of diabetes is the low level of vitamin D. This shortage can be corrected, as it helps a lot in the fight against diabetes. It is believed that vitamin D helps to improve insulin sensitivity in the body, thus reducing insulin resistance.
Vitamin D also helps to aid weight loss and regulate your appetite.
In some places such as Malaysia, vitamin D production from the sun is not enough. This is because the exposure of the inhabitants to the sun isn’t enough to generate production of vitamin D in the skin. But here at V Wellness, we help you circumvent this by administering the vitamin via injection.
EECP Treatment and Diabetes Management
EECP Treatment is a treatment procedure that has a lot of applications. One of them is in the management of diabetes. A study showed that administering EECP to diabetic patients helped to enhance insulin utilization by decreasing insulin resistance and increasing insulin sensitivity.
This study confirms that EECP is a viable procedure for you with regards to diabetes management.
Does Natural Management Methods of Diabetes Work?
Yes. The major key to treatment is proper lifestyle changes. Dietary changes are key, as it can help reverse the condition in some cases. Lifestyle changes are generally preventive.
Ways to Manage Sugar Naturally

- Religiously Monitor Carb Intake: Eat less foods with a lot of carbs like bread, pasta, sweets, etc. Fiber rich foods help you stabilize your blood sugar and help you manage your weight properly, not to mention increased bowel movements.
Recent studies have also shown that fiber heavy diets can help prevent type 2 diabetes by almost 20% in comparison to fiber light diets.
