Diabetics food

Recent study has shown that people having type 2 diabetes can remarkably control their
sugar levels by following a vegan lifestyle. Foods from these groups can especially be
beneficial.
Grains: Whole wheat pasta, brown rice, high-fibre cereals, corn, oatmeal, couscous, bulgur
wheat, millet, barley, rye, etc.
Legumes: Beans (black, pinto, kidney, garbanzo, white, etc.), peas, lentils, non-fat soy
products like tofu.
Vegetables: All except white potatoes. Examples include tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots,
broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, kale, collards, squash, green beans, bok choy, sweet potatoes,
and artichokes
Diabetics are always told to increase their physical activity and lose weight. This is because,
when youre exercising, your body derives energy from glucose reserves of your body. When
that stored glucose is exhausted, your body extracts glucose from the bloodstream. This
causes a drop in blood glucose levels. After your finish exercising, your liver restores the
exhausted energy reserves, which further helps to reduce blood sugar levels. Regular
exercise also increases your sensitivity to insulin. It also helps to burn fat, lower blood
pressure cholesterol and improves circulation
A study has suggested that increased water intake plays an important role in how the body
regulates blood sugar levels. When the body is dehydrated, vasopressin, a hormone that
helps to retain water in the body, signals the liver to produce more glucose, which increases
blood glucose levels
Add a handful of nuts to your diet and control blood glucose levels. Although high in
calories, nuts like almonds, peanuts and walnuts are good sources of fibres, vitamin E and
magnesium, which regulate blood sugar levels efficiently. Nuts also contain healthy fats that
are good for heart health in diabetics.
Fruits like oranges, grapefruit, oranges, lemons, berries, melons and sweet limes have
properties like insulin, which help to control blood sugar levels naturally. Other than that
diabetics can have all fruits except avocados, olives, pineapple, and watermelon
Stevia, a naturally sweet plant is shown to be an excellent substitute of sugar in diabetics. It
stabilizes blood sugar levels by increasing insulin resistance, inhibiting absorption of glucose
and promoting health of the pancreas.
Researchers have revealed that green tea contains polyphenols, a substance that helps to
increase insulin activity. Green tea also inhibits certain enzymes involved in digestion of
carbohydrates, which reduces the rate at which glucose is released into the bloodstream
Several plant extracts have shown to have anti-diabetic properties. Especially, methi
(fenugreek leaves), tulsi leaves (Basil), neem leaves, Pterocarpus or Vijaysar, Karela (Bitter
gourd), Gurmar leaves (Gymnema) and Amrit (Guduchi). They either reduce the rate at
which glucose is absorbed in the intestine or by increasing the production of insulin.
Increased stress levels can completely disturb the glandular system of your body. Since
diabetes is a hormonal disorder, stress can have a negative impact on health. So
meditation, relaxation and good sleep are important for controlling diabetes.
Every time you roll your shopping cart into the supermarket, youre making a decision that
goes far beyond whether youre going to have pork or pierogies for dinner. Youre actually
choosing between being a victim and a victor. What you put in your cart goes a long
Page 1 of 9

Diabetics food
way toward determining whether youll be compromised by diabetes or start controlling and
eventually even beating it.
Thats why weve assembled the following list of the 20 best foods for fighting diabetes.
Every time you go to the store from now on, take this list with you and check off each item.
In fact, if your favourite store has a delivery service, sign up for it so your supplies are
automatically replenished every few weeks.
Research proves that making a few key changes to your dietsuch as eating more produce,
fewer refined carbohydrates, plenty of lean protein, and more good fathelps improve
blood-sugar control and cuts the risk of diabetes-related complications. Dont make the
mistake of thinking that one or two or even five foods on this list will transform
you. You need most of themyes, even the flaxseedbecause together they represent a
new approach to eating, a lifestyle rather than just a diet.
1. Apples
Because they offer so many health advantages, put these at the core of your diet. Apples
are naturally low in calories, yet their high fibre content (4 grams) fills you up, battles bad
cholesterol, and blunts blood-sugar swings. Red Delicious
and Granny Smith are also among the top 10 fruits with the most disease-fighting
antioxidants.
Eat them whole and unpeeled for the greatest benefit, or make a quick baked apple. After
washing and chopping one apple, put it in a bowl with a dusting of cinnamon and microwave
until soft (about 4 minutes). Enjoy with yogourt and oat bran sprinkles for a nutritious
dessert, or serve over oatmeal for breakfast.
2. Avocado
Rich, creamy, and packed with beneficial monounsaturated fat, avocado slows digestion and
helps keep blood sugar from spiking after a meal. A diet high in good fats may even help
reverse insulin resistance, which translates to steadier blood sugar long-term. Try putting
mashed avocado on sandwiches instead of mayonnaise or on bread instead of butter. To
keep whats left over from turning brown, spritz the flesh with cooking spray or coat with
lemon juice and wrap in plastic.
3. Barley
Choosing this grain instead of white rice can reduce the rise in blood sugar after a meal by
almost 70 per centand keep your blood sugar lower and steadier for hours. Thats because
the soluble fibre and other compounds in barley dramatically slow the digestion and
absorption of the carbohydrate. Even brown rice cant compare. Add barley to soups, serve
it as a side dish, or make it the basis for a stir-fry or casserole. Pearled, hulled, or quickcooking varieties are all crackling good choices.
4. Beans
When menu planning, think bean cuisine at least twice a week. The soluble fibre in all
types of beans (from chickpeas to kidney beans to even edamame) puts a lid on high blood
sugar. And because theyre rich in protein, beans can stand in for meat in main dishes. Just
watch the sodium content. Always rinse canned beans before using. To save time cooking
beans, invest in a pressure cooker. Soaked beans are tender in just 10 to 15 minutes.
5. Beef
Yes, beef is a diabetes-friendly food, as long as you choose the leanest cuts and keep
portions to one-fourth your plate. Getting enough protein at mealtime keeps you feeling full
and satisfied. Plus, it helps maintain muscle mass when youre losing weight, so your
metabolism stays high. The skinniest beef cuts are eye of round, inside round, ground
round, tenderloin, sirloin, flank steak, and filet mignon. To lean up other cuts, put them in
the freezer for 20 minutes. This hardens the meat so its easier to slice off the fat. Lean cuts
can be tenderized and made more flavourful by marinating in any mixture that contains
vinegar, wine, or citrus juice. The acid softens them up.

6. Berries
Think of them as natures M&Ms: sweet, convenient, colourful, and satisfying. Berries are full
of fibre and antioxidants. The red and blue varieties also contain natural plant compounds
called anthocyanins. Scientists believe these may help lower blood sugar by boosting insulin
production. Put some in an easy-to-grab location or freeze a handful to suck on or use as ice
cubes.
7. Broccoli
Hey, dont make that face. Broccoli is filling, fibrous, and full of antioxidants (including a
days worth of vitamin C in one serving). Its also rich in chromium, which plays an
important role in long-term blood sugar control. If you dont already love it, either hide it
in soups, pasta dishes, and casseroles, or saut it with garlic, soy sauce, and mustard, or
dark sesame oil (or any combination thereof) for a taste youll fall for.
8. Carrots
Dont believe what you hear about carrots rapidly raising blood sugar. While the type of
sugar they contain is transformed into blood sugar quickly, the amount of sugar in carrots is
extremely low. Thats good news because carrots are one of natures richest sources of
beta-carotene, which is linked to a lower risk of diabetes and better blood-sugar control. Sick
of raw sticks? Make some fries by slicing carrots into thin strips, scattering on a baking
sheet, and flavouring with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 400F (200C) for 40 minutes.
Who needs McDonalds?
9. Chicken or turkey
These meats can be high-fat disasters or perfectly healthy fare. It all depends on the cut
and how its prepared. Breast meat, whether ground or whole, is always lower in fat than
dark meat such as thighs and drumsticks. Never eat the skin because of its high saturated
fat content, and when buying ground turkey, make sure the package says ground turkey
breast. Otherwise, you may as well be eating hamburger. And need we remind you, the
Colonel is not your friend. (Why are you eating anything that comes in a bucket anyway?) If
you stick to these rules, youll enjoy a nice, low-calorie dose of sustaining protein. No time
to cook? Pick up a rotisserie chicken.
10. Eggs
Eggs are another excellent, inexpensive source of high-quality proteinso high, in fact, that
egg protein is the gold standard nutritionists use to rank all other proteins. An egg or two
wont raise your cholesterol, and will keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours afterward.
Such a magic food deserves a little sleight of hand in its preparation. To flip an egg, spritz
the skillet with cooking spray, wait for the egg white to bubble and, in one continuous
motion, slide the pan quickly toward you and then forward with a slight upward flick of the
wrist. Bow to your guests.
11. Fish
The single deadliest complications of diabetes is heart disease, and eating fish just once a
week can reduce your risk by 40 per cent, according to a Harvard School of Public Health
study. The fatty acids in fish reduce inflammation in the bodya major contributor to
coronary diseaseas well as insulin resistance and diabetes. And unless youre pregnant,
dont worry too much about potential chemical contaminants. An exhaustive review of the
scientific literature on fish and human health by Harvard researchers led to the conclusion
that eating it far outweighs any accompanying risks.
12. Flaxseed
No, this is not something you fill the bird feeders with come winter. Rather, these shiny
brown seeds hit the diabetes trifecta: Theyre rich in protein, fibre, and good fats similar to
the kind found in fish. Theyre also a source of magnesium, a mineral thats key to bloodsugar control because it helps cells use insulin. Ground flaxseed spoils quickly, so buy whole
seeds in bulk, keep in the fridge, and grind as needed. Sprinkle on cereal, yogourt, or ice
Page 3 of 9

Diabetics food
cream or blend into meat loaf, meatballs, burgers, pancakes, and breads. It works in just
about anythingincluding bird feeders.
13. Milk and yogurt
Both are rich in protein and calcium, which studies show may help people lose weight. And
diets that include plenty of dairy may fight insulin resistance, a core problem behind
diabetes. Go low-fat or fat-free, though. If you dont like the taste of skim milk, try 1 percent.
Its a little thicker and creamier than skim. Likewise, reduced-fat Greek-style yogurt tends to
taste richer than its Canadian counterparts because of how its made. Drizzle with honey
and imagine youre on the Mediterranean.
14. Nuts
Because of their high fibre and protein content, nuts are slow burning foods that are
friendly to blood sugar. And even though they contain a lot of fat, its that healthful
monounsaturated kind again. Roasting really brings out the flavour of nuts and makes them
a great addition to fall soups and entres. Just spread shelled nuts on a cooking sheet and
bake at 300F (150C) for 7 to 10 minutes.
15. Seeds
Like nuts, seeds of all typespumpkin, sunflower, sesameare filled with good fats, protein,
and fibre that work together to keep blood sugar low and stave off heart disease. Theyre
also a natural source of cholesterol-lowering sterols, the same compounds added to some
cholesterol-lowering margarines. Fill an empty Altoids mint tin with your favourite unsalted
seeds and stash it in your purse or pocket in case of snack emergencies. Or tell the waiter to
hold the croutons on your Caesar and substitute pumpkin or sunflower seeds instead.
16. Oatmeal
Ever wonder why oatmeal is so good for you? Its because its loaded with soluble fibre
which, when mixed with water, forms a paste. Just as it sticks to your bowl, it also forms a
gummy barrier between the digestive enzymes in your stomach and the starch molecules in
your meal. So it takes longer for your body to convert the carbs youve eaten into blood
sugar. Dont like oatmeal in the morning? Buy oat flour and use it as a thickener in autumn
stews, casseroles, and soups. Or add ground oatmeal (not the instant kind) to muffin,
pancake, or waffle batters. You wont even know its there.
17. Olive oil
This stuff is liquid gold. In fact, it contains an anti-inflammatory component so strong that
researchers liken it to aspirin. This may be one reason why people who follow a
Mediterranean dieta traditional way of eating that emphasizes olive oil along with
produce, whole grains, and lean meathave such low rates of heart disease and diabetes,
both of which are linked with inflammation. Unlike butter, the good fat in olive oil wont
increase insulin resistance and may even help reverse it. A touch of olive oil also slows
digestion, so your meal is less likely to spike your glucose. Dribble it on salads, baked
potatoes, pastajust about anything.
18. Peanut butter
One study found that eating peanut butter dampens the appetite for up to 2 hours longer
than a low-fibre, high-carb snack, making this childhood favourite a grown-up weight-loss
ally. The monounsaturated fats in PB also help control blood sugar. Looking for a new way to
enjoy it? Try raw or steamed veggies with this peanut dip: Bring 2/3 cup water to boil in a
saucepan, stir in 1/3 cup creamy PB, 1 clove minced garlic, 2 teaspoons fresh-grated ginger,
2 medium chopped scallions, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and
a dash of chili powder. Simmer 2 minutes, remove from heat, and stir in 1 tablespoon of
lemon juice. Wait until it cools, then start dipping!
19. Whole-grain bread
Eating white bread is practically like eating table sugar when it comes to raising blood sugar.
So if you eat a lot of it (and this includes bagels), simply switching to whole grain may
improve your sensitivity to insulin. In one study of nearly 1,000 men and women, the higher
Page 4 of 9

Diabetics food
their intake of whole grains, the greater their insulin sensitivity and blood-sugar stability.
Dont mistake any old brown bread, or even multigrain, for whole grain. If it doesnt have
the word whole in the first ingredient, dont buy it. And look for the coarsest bread you
can find; the coarseness will slow digestion.
20. Sweet potatoes
Choose a baked sweet potato instead of a baked white potato, and your blood sugar will rise
about 30 percent less. Sweet potatoes are packed with nutrients and disease-fighting fibre,
almost 40 percent of which is the soluble kind that lowers cholesterol and slows digestion.
Theyre also extra rich in carotenoids, orange and yellow pigments that play a role in
helping the body respond to insulin. Plus, theyre full of the natural plant compound
chlorogenic acid, which may help reduce insulin resistance.
1. Bitter Gourd
Bitter gourd, also known as bitter melon, can be helpful for controlling diabetes due to its
blood glucose lowering effects. It tends to influence the glucose metabolism all over your
body rather than a particular organ or tissue. It helps increase pancreatic insulin secretion
and prevents insulin resistance. Thus, bitter gourd is beneficial for both type 1 and type 2
diabetes. However, it cannot be used to entirely replace insulin treatment.
Drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the
seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some
water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two
months.
Also you can include one dish made of bitter gourd daily in your diet.
2. Cinnamon
Powdered cinnamon has the ability to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin activity.
It contains bioactive components that can help prevent and fight diabetes.
Certain trials have shown that it can work as an effective option to lower blood sugar levels
in cases of uncontrolled type-2 diabetes.
Cinnamon, however, should not be taken in excess because we commonly use Cassia
cinnamon (found in most grocery stores) which contains a compound called coumarin. It is a
toxic compound that increases the risk of liver damage.
There is another variety of this herb known as Ceylon cinnamon or true cinnamon. It is
considered safer for health but its effects on blood glucose levels have not been studied
adequately.
Mix one-half to one teaspoon cinnamon in a cup of warm water. Drink it daily.
Another option is to boil two to four cinnamon sticks in one cup of water and allow it
to steep for 20 minutes. Drink this solution daily until you see improvement.
You can also add cinnamon to warm beverages, smoothies and baked goods.
3. Fenugreek
Fenugreek is an herb that can also be used to control diabetes, improve glucose tolerance
and lower blood sugar levels due to its hypoglycaemic activity. It also stimulates the
secretion of glucose-dependent insulin. Being high in fiber, it slows down the absorption of
carbohydrates and sugars.
Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Drink the water along
with the seeds in the morning on an empty stomach. Follow this remedy without fail
for a few months to bring down your glucose level.
Eat two tablespoons of powdered fenugreek seeds daily with milk.
4. Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Indian gooseberry, also known as Amla, is rich in vitamin C and Indian gooseberry juice
promotes proper functioning of your pancreas.
Take two to three Indian gooseberries, remove the seeds and grind it into a fine paste.
Put the paste in a cloth and squeeze out the juice. Mix two tablespoon of the juice in
one cup of water and drink it daily on an empty stomach.
Page 5 of 9

Diabetics food
Alternatively, mix one tablespoonful of Indian gooseberry juice with a cup of bitter
gourd juice and drink it daily for a few months.
5. Black Plum or Indian Black Berry (Jambul)
Black plum or jambul, also known as jamun can help a lot in controlling blood sugar level
because it contains anthocyanins, ellagic acid, hydrolysable tannins etc.
Each part of the Jambul plant such as the leaves, berry and seeds can be used by those
suffering from diabetes. In fact, research has shown that the fruits and seeds of this plant
have hypoglycemic effects as they help reduce blood and urine sugar levels rapidly.
The seeds, in particular, contain glycoside jamboline and alkaloid jambosine that regulate
control blood sugar levels.
Whenever this seasonal fruit is available in the market, try to include it in your diet as it can
be very effective for the pancreas. Else you can make a powder of dried seeds of Jambul
fruit and eat this powder with water twice a day. This fruit is native to India and its
neighboring countries but you can find it at Asian markets and herbal shops.
6. Mango Leaves
The delicate and tender mango leaves can be used to treat diabetes by regulating insulin
levels in the blood. They can also help improve blood lipid profiles.
Soak 10 to 15 tender mango leaves in a glass of water overnight. In the morning,
filter the water and drink it on an empty stomach.
You can also dry the leaves in the shade and grind them. Eat one-half teaspoon of
powdered mango leaves two times daily.
7. Curry Leaves
Curry leaves are useful in preventing and controlling diabetes as they have antidiabetic properties. It is believed that curry leaves contain an ingredient that
reduces the rate at which starch is broken down to glucose in diabetics.
So, you can simply chew about 10 fresh curry leaves daily in the morning. For best
results, continue this treatment for three to four months. It also helps reduce bad
cholesterol levels and obesity.
8. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera gel helps lower fasting blood glucose levels. It contains phytosterols that
have possible anti-hyperglycemic effects for type 2 diabetes
The combination of aloe vera gel, bay leaves and turmeric is helpful for controlling blood
sugar. To make this herbal medicine:
Mix together one to two teaspoons of ground bay leaves, one teaspoon of turmeric
and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
Drink this solution daily, before lunch and dinner.
9. Guava
Due to its vitamin C and high fiber content, eating guava can be really helpful in
maintaining the blood sugar level. It is best for diabetics not to eat the skin of the
fruit so peel it first. However, too much consumption of guava in a day is not
recommended.
10. Water
The amount of water you drink on daily basis is important in controlling high blood
sugar. Water mobilizes the high sugar content in your blood. Drink at least 2.5
liters of water daily. Drinking enough water will also lower the risk of other ailments
associated with diabetes.
Moderate exposure to sunlight too, is essential for leading a healthy life, and a
very simple yet effective way to help control high blood sugar. Sunlight improves
the functionality of vitamin D, which is essential for insulin production. Take a few
minutes every day and let your body soak in the sun light.

Diabetes is among the most common disorders in the world today. Despite various
researches done and precautions taken, one cannot predict who will suffer from diabetes.
Depending on the type and severity, every diabetic patient should be given medications.
Here are a few natural remedies that can be helpful in reducing the sugar levels in a
diabetic patient
Fig Leaves- Figs leaves are very commonly used in treating diabetes. They are believed to
have anti-diabetic properties that help them to reduce the sugar levels in the blood. Fig
leaves can be directly chewed on an empty stomach, or the leaves can be boiled in water
and the water can be drunk like tea. Done on a regular basis, the need for insulin gets
reduced.
Fenugreek- Fenugreek seeds are rich in sugar-lowering properties. Even the leaves of this
plant can be made as curry and consumed regularly. Fenugreek helps to reduce the insulin
dependency when taken in regular intervals. A teaspoon-full of seeds should be soaked in a
glass of water over night and the water along with the seeds should be drunk on empty
stomach. No foods or medications should be taken for the next 30 minutes after consuming
the water. This treatment is recommended for 2 3 times per week.
Cinnamon- Cinnamon is the common spice used in every Indian cooking. The taste and the
aroma enhancer also has beneficial anti-diabetic properties where it is believed to have the
same properties like insulin in lowering the blood glucose level. It is recommended to take
half spoon of cinnamon powder everyday to get the desired effect. It can also be chewed in
its natural form instead of being made into a powder.
Grape Seed Extract- Grape seeds are a rich source of vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid
and oligomeric proanthocyanidins. Recent studies have proved their efficacy in treating
diabetes. The grape seeds are ground and placed in capsules; the person can take up to
300mg per day to reduce the blood sugar levels.
Olive Oil- Olive oil is believed to have beneficiary effects such as reducing the cholesterol
and triglycerides level in the blood. It also helps to reduce blood sugar level. Cooking all
foods with edible olive oil brings about this effect on the long run.
Bitter Melon / Bitter Gourd- Bitter gourd is an ancient remedy to treat diabetes at home.
It can be taken in the form of juice, or cooked and fried and consumed with food daily. Many
prefer drinking the stock after boiling the bitter gourd. The best effects can be gained when
taken on empty stomach every morning. Be cautious while taking bitter gourd as it can even
lead to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels.
Vitamin C- Wondering why vitamin C is used for diabetes? Recent researches have found
that consuming up to 600mg of vitamin C daily can help to normalize the blood glucose
levels. Foods rich in vitamin C should be consumed daily by chronic diabetics.
Garlic- This is a common Indian herb known to every Indian family that is extensively used
in everyday cooking. Everyone is aware of the cholesterol-reducing effect of garlic; few
people know about its anti-diabetic effect. The chemical Allicin in garlic is believed to have
hypoglycemic effects.
Aloe Vera- This is a very common plant grown in most households. It has varied benefits
and uses for the human body. Widely used for the cosmetic property, it also has
hypoglycemic characteristics. It has a slight bitter taste, yet has proven to reduce the sugar
Page 7 of 9

Diabetics food
levels. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that promote wound healing. It is best taken
with buttermilk to improve the taste.
Neem- Neem, a tree that is believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal property, has
anti-diabetic properties as well. It has been found to reduce insulin requirements by up to
50%.
Indian Gooseberry- The common mans fruit that is rich in vitamin C also has
hypoglycemic properties. The fruit when taken orally helps to reduce the sugar level by
stimulating insulin production within 30 minutes of consumption. The seeds of this fruit are
also taken in ground and powdered form, which has much slower effect in reducing the
blood glucose levels.
Mango- The leaves of the mango tree are believed to have anti-diabetic properties. The leaf
extracts need to be administered at least 60 minutes before food consumption then only the
desired effect can be seen. It helps to reduce the intestinal glucose absorption, which is the
reason behind its anti-diabetic effect.
Holy Basil- This is a medicinal plant, which is also considered holy by many Indians right
from ancient times. It is recommended to extract the juice from the leaves and consume it.
A daily habit of eating fresh leaves from the garden after washing has tremendous effects
on the body. Basil leaves bring about a significant reduction in the blood glucose level. Apart
from that, this leaf also has anti-stress, anti-asthmatic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, gastric
anti-ulcer, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-tumor, anti-mutagenic and immuno-stimulant
properties.
Lady's Finger- This most sought out vegetable is rich in soluble fibers. It helps to slow
down the absorption of glucose from the intestine. Soak one lady's finger slit in the middle
in a glass of water overnight and consume it on an empty stomach. Done over a month, it
reduces the blood glucose level to a great extent.
Beans- Beans help to slow down the digestion process thereby preventing the rise in blood
glucose level. Beans give a feeling of fullness to the stomach and satiety is reached early.
Soy- Soy is a blessing for those having unmanageable chronic diabetes. Soy contains
isoflavones that help to reduce blood sugar levels while keeping the body well nourished. It
also prevents the accumulation of fat as it gives very little calories. It is ideal for weight
reduction program too.
Jamun- This is a seasonal berry that is not available all through the year. The leaves of the
Jamun tree are useful in reducing the sugar levels. 100 grams of this fruit consumed per day
can do wonders to the blood glucose levels. Caution many tend to develop sore throat
after consuming Jamun.
Vinegar- Many may not include vinegar in their regular diet. But this again helps diabetics
to reduce the sugar concentration in the blood. Add vinegar to foods that can be palatable
with this ingredient. Two spoons of vinegar before food helps in the reduction of glucose
influx.
Oysters- Oysters may have no direct effect in reducing the blood glucose level. But, as a
rich source of zinc, they help to promote wound healing in diabetics. Thus, it is advisable for
diabetics to include oysters in their diet for better wound healing capability.

Papaya- It is recommended to consume papaya on a daily basis as it has natural blood
sugar controlling capability that helps to control diabetes by and large. It is also a rich
source of vitamin C and anti-oxidants along with carotenes and flavonoids.
1)Natural Medicine 1: Prepare 100g Dry Amla (Indian Goose berry ) Powder which you can
get from local Ayurvedic shops in India. 50g fenugreek powder, 30g turmeric powder; mix all
these powders together and keep it in a dry glass bottle. Every morning mix 1 table spoon
powder in to warm water, wait for 5 min and drink at empty stomach. Within few days you
can achieve bodys immunity power and also will stabilize the blood sugar level. Better use
it with a portable blood sugar analysis meter so you can understand the progress. According
to sugar measurement one has to increase or decrease the amount of medicine intake. After
some days you can understand the ideal amount of medicine powder suitable for your body.
One have to do body exercise along with this treatment.
2)Natural Medicine 2: Prepare dry Basil leaves (Indian basil is best with dark blue color)
50g , dry neem leaves powder 50g, turmeric powder 50g mixed together and use as
described in section 1 or mix it with 1 tbs honey and drink early at morning. Do good
exercise for sweating
3)Natural medicine 3: If people cannot follow section 1 and 2 then they have to do the
following things: (Anybody can follow these method)
Stop all the non-veg food and completely turn in to a vegetarian. Use more half boiled
vegetables or fresh fruits in your meals. Lime juice is very effective for diabetic patients so
drink it as much as possible only with pure honey. Eat more fruits of different varieties all
around you, the natural sugar in fruits is not a problem but eating meat will make more
problem. Fish can be eat moderately. But dont eat too much sweet fruits more which will
cause sugar unbalance in your body. My suggestion is carrots, oranges, lime/lemon, mango,
pine apple, green apple, all green vegetables, sprouted vegetables etc. An ideal diet is as
follows
a)Morning honey with medicine powder, after that eat anything light weight without butter
and full fat milk like corn/oats with moderate low fat milk, bananas, boiled veg, badams, any
dry fruits or fresh fruits
b)Lunch time eat any veg food without too much oil.
c)Eat fruits/boiled veg/ oats/wheat/veg soup/
4)Do proper exercises daily until you sweat. This is very very important in our package.
Without doing this all the sections above is not effective. Exercise will make your blood more
pump and all your bodys natural system will stabilize. So, naturally you will make a
tendency to produce natural insulin in your body. You can also play sports/games if you are
capable.
5)Laugh as you can, it is a magical medicine for any disease and it will control your blood
pressure and give you good immune. All your body systems will be stabilized and the
healing will be faster.
6)Practice yoga if you can, otherwise listen to music as you wish and relax whenever
possible. A little bit gardening or any other hobbies which will make you busy and cheerful is
vital for your body
