Diabetes Naturopathy

If you have diabetes, your blood sugar levels are likely to be constantly on your mind. Maintaining healthy levels is essential to prevent or delay long-term, serious health conditions. Whether you have type 1 diabetes where your body is unable to make insulin or type 2 diabetes where your body cannot use the insulin it does produce effectively, life can certainly feel like a balancing act.

When your blood sugar levels are unbalanced, both the mind and body are affected. Your immune system, circulatory system and nervous system are all affected so it’s important to find a naturopathy treatment for diabetes that enables you to stay in control. Naturopath therapy will work to target all areas of your health, well-being and lifestyle to provide a well-rounded treatment plan that will work to restore your blood sugar to healthy levels.

Can Diabetes Go Into Remission Through Naturopathy?

Naturopathy focuses on the mind, body and spirit as a whole. No matter your condition, naturopaths work to create a treatment plan that incorporates your entire lifestyle in order to target the issue at the root. Contrary to some beliefs in conventional medicine, naturopaths aim to restore balance within the body, enabling it to heal itself. As a result, naturopaths believe that those who suffer from type 2 diabetes can indeed go into remission with the right treatment plan.

Can You Reverse Diabetes Naturally?

Naturopathic medicine for diabetes involves caring for the whole person to treat and prevent disease and empower patients to achieve optimal health. Their treatment methods stretch beyond conventional medicine, delving into health and lifestyle changes that individuals can make to improve the blood sugar levels in their body.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when there are defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both. In general, insulin production gradually decreases until it eventually reaches a stage where the body is no longer able to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Naturopaths work to prevent the decrease in insulin production and reverse the effects with their treatment before the damage is irreversible.

A natural treatment form, naturopathic therapy such as nutrition management and increased exercise has been proven to reduce haemoglobin A1c levels. If treatment begins early enough, the diabetes diagnosis can be reversed, these levels returned to within a normal range and the need for medication and ongoing treatment reduced.

What is the Best Natural Remedy for Diabetics?

When it comes to natural remedies for diabetics, there isn’t a one size fits all approach or single best remedy. Naturopaths utilise a number of remedies in order to create a treatment plan that works best for you. These herbal medicine could include:

Bean pod

A vegetable that is used commonly across the globe. It contains particular hormones that can stimulate the production of insulin and help regulate blood sugar levels.

Milk thistle

A popular herb within naturopathic therapy, milk thistle is rich in antioxidants. Regular intake has been linked to lower blood sugar levels in those with type 2 diabetes.


Made up of many healthy ingredients, fenugreek also contains a large amount of fibre. This fibre helps to reduce carbohydrate absorption in the body and consequently lowers blood sugar levels after a meal.

What Helps Diabetes Naturally Without Medication?

Type 2 diabetes is hugely linked to lifestyle and is entirely preventable. So it’s never too late to make positive changes and work to get your blood sugar levels back into the normal range. Whilst medication can help you to manage symptoms and reduce blood sugar levels, there are many naturopathy medicines for diabetes available that can help without the need for traditional medication.

Plant-based herbal therapies have been proven to have anti-diabetic properties such as aloe vera, cinnamon, fenugreek, ginger, okra and more. But it’s essential to seek the advice and guidance of a professional before incorporating such supplements into your diet. A naturopath has the knowledge, expertise and experience in this area and will be able to provide a safe and sustainable treatment plan that doesn’t include medication through the use of a naturopathy diet plan.

How Can You Control Diabetes With Naturopathy Treatment?

Naturopathy treatments for diabetes usually include:

Increased exercise

If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, you’ve likely heard the recommendation of exercising moderately five times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes in each session. When you are active, your cells become more sensitive to insulin, enabling it to work better. And as a result, exercise immediately lowers your blood sugar levels. A naturopath will work with you to create an exercise plan that is achievable to maximise results and minimise the risk of injury.

Balanced nutrition

It’s no secret that diabetes is heavily linked to nutrition. So when it comes to natural remedies for diabetes, it’s essential to start with diet. A naturopath will incorporate nutrition into their treatment plan in order to manage blood sugar levels and prevent them from rising. A naturopath may ask you to keep a food record to identify where changes need to be made. They’ll create a nutrition plan enabling you to avoid foods that increase blood sugar levels and eat more foods that lower them. Naturopaths combine herbal and traditional medicine with conventional nutritional advice to create optimal results that cater to your individual needs.

Lifestyle changes

Naturopaths have the knowledge and expertise to delve into all areas of your life, including other lifestyle changes in your treatment plan. These include stress levels, relationships, quality of sleep and much more. Their treatment methods include the mind, body and spirit – by creating positivity and balance in other areas of your life, your body will be in its optimum state for healing.
