Top 8 ways to reduce "Diabetes" naturally

Hi Friends
Do you know that some very ordinary looking vegetables/fruits have medicinal effects on diabetes?

Yes!

But before reaching to those vegetables/fruits let’s find out, What do we mean by “Diabetes”?

“Diabetes” 

It is basically a nutritional disorder of carbohydrate(sugar) metabolism due to insufficient insulin secretion.Clinically it is called “Diabetes Mellitus”.
In the word “Diabetes Mellitus”, “Diabetes” is a Greek word which means “to pass through”  & “Mellitus” is a Latin word which means ”Honey/Sweet”.
Thus following two symptoms gave the name to the disease as “Diabetes Mellitus” or “Diabetes”.

  • 1.      Excessive urination because the normal volume of urine passed daily is about 1.5 liter, but in the case of “Diabetes Mellitus” or “Diabetes” it can vary from 4 to 20 liters a day.Clinically it is called “Polyuria” 
  • 2.      Glucose/sugar in the urine:- the normal level of sugar in the urine is 0-0.8mmol/liter, the level of sugar in urine in excess of this creates health related issues.Clinically it is called “Glycosuria”.
The excessive excretion of Glucose/Sugar in the urine leads to abnormalities in carbohydrate metabolism as well as protein & fat metabolism.
Worry, anxiety & grief also have a deep influence on the metabolism & may cause sugar to appear in the urine.
Heredity, systematic overeating & consequent obesity are also very significant players in the development of “Diabetes”.
Note: It has been estimated that the incidence of diabetes is 4 times higher in persons with moderate obesity & 30 times higher in persons with severe obesity. 
It has been rightly said that
“Heredity is a cannon & obesity pulls the trigger”
“आनुवंशिकता एक तोप की तरह है, और मोटापा ट्रिगर खींचती है”
“Diabetes Mellitus” or “Diabetes” is of two types.

Type 1 “Diabetes Mellitus” or 
Type 1 “Diabetes”

*This is called “Insulin Dependent” Diabetes.
* Body does not produce “Insulin” properly.
*It usually develops in children & young adults.
*Only 5-10% “diabetic patients are suffering       fromType 1 “Diabetes”

*It cannot be prevented.

Type 2 “Diabetes Mellitus” or 
Type 2 “Diabetes”

*This is called “Insulin Resistance” Diabetes.
*Body does not use “Insulin” properly.
*It usually occurs in people aged over 40 years.
*It is a most common form of “Diabetes”.
   90-95% “diabetic patients are suffering from
   Type 2 “Diabetes”
*It can be prevented by a healthy lifestyle.


So we see that in “Diabetes”

“Lack of insulin” is common whether it is “Type 1” Debates or “Type2” Diabetes.
Now a question arises that


Why “Insulin” is so important for our body?

Here is your answer
Because “Insulin” is a key factor by virtue of which our body cells become open to allowing glucose/sugar to enter within them, without “Insulin” our body cells cannot absorb glucose/sugar. Therefore glucose/sugar stays & builds up in the blood if this condition left untreated this “High blood sugar” can damage our kidney, heart, eyes etc.
Now let’s try to find out Some natural support system in term of vegetables/fruits for “Diabetes” &
