Diabetes does not just happen one day but is a gradual process that often can be turned around in the early stages.
How do you stop diabetes in the early stages?
Diet changes and Exercise are two of the most important factors in blood sugar control.
That means getting rid of the sugar, junk food, sodas, processed food, and high carb foods. There are books and articles on the subject. Most people know what they should not be eating, they just are unable to stop. There are reasons you are overeating. You need to find out why you eat first. It it stress related? Is it deep seated pain from a marriage or childhood? What feelings come up in your heart and mind when you reach for that fork? So counseling or therapy might help root that heart wound out and show you how to deal with it in more constructive way. I knew a nurse that would overeat because of horrible memories of when she was used by her parents in child porn. You need to forgive others or yourself. Find a way to look into the mirror and see the beautiful person that is looking back at you. So these steps should come first to conquer diabetes.
Are there thyroid or endocrine problems in your family?
Were either one of your parents very thin or suffer with weight problems? You need to find out if endocrine problems are causing problems in your weight and health. See an endocrinologist who is specialized in these health problems.
If possible find one who is holistically centered in his treatment.
Are there herbs and supplements to help you conquer your blood sugar problems?
It is important that you get help from a holistic doctor to help you use the proper amounts of these herbs and to monitor your blood sugar while doing so.
Do not take herbs and diabetic medicine together. Herbs can affect your medication, causing a possible overdose of your diabetes medicine. So again, you need the direction of a holistic doctor to use these herbs properly. These herbs can reduce your blood sugar to the point of causing a problem with your medicine.
This article is about the herbs and supplements that help your body to be more effective in dealing with sugar and foods.
