Diabetes Part 2, Reversing Pre-diabetes Holistically

In the last segment we went over Pre-diabetes and explained what makes a person a Pre-diabetic, we spoke about how the pancreas pretty much gives up on trying to control the absorption of sugar into the cells for energy, and the causes of Pre-diabetes. Today we will discuss how we can reverse diabetes and its importance. Today we are going to go over holistic measures that can help reverse Pre-diabetes; Please pay close attention because this information can help you prevent the occurrence of Type 2 Diabetes.

The first suggestion is to work on the weight. Set a goal of losing 10-11 percent of your total body weight So what does that mean? If you weigh 220 lbs, how much bodyweight do you have to lose? Approximately 24 to 26 pounds. Studies show that losing 10-11% of your weight can help decrease the chances of developing diabetes within the next three years, pretty much extending the time for Pre-diabetes manifesting itself as Type 2 Diabetes.

The second suggestion eats lots of leafy greens and food rich in fiber if you have sugar craving opt for fruit. Avoid foods that have are rich in hydrogenated fats or trans fats, reduce sugar intake, eat as if you had diabetes. The daily recommended sugar intake is 22 grams of sugar for women, 36 grams for men, and children 12 grams of sugar. Meals should not contain more than 7-9 grams of sugar.

The third is to opt for water over sugary drinks. 1/2 of your body weight in ounces is ideal. Water is crucial for our bodies; it helps hydrate, flush toxins, and also helps with weight loss. The forth is to exercise. Put yourself on a move regimen, even if you feel you can not kill at the Gym, start walking, park your vehicle farther from the entrance of places you will be visiting, it will force you to walk. Exercise for approximately 3 hours in half throughout the week. 45-50 minutes 3 times a week or 30 minutes five days out of the week. It can make a significant difference in your weight and health.

The fifth is to reduce stress. I think I have explained time and time again how stress is a stimulant for the diseases. Stress can cause the endocrine system to release extra hormones, and insulin is a hormone: meditation, breathing exercises, physical activity, and even sex help to reduce stress.

The last one get your sleep on! Sleep your eight hours, and if you need a nap, take one. Sleep disorders can cause numerous chronic diseases and can make the body feel stressed. If you have a sleep disorder, let me know. I can recommend some yoga poses, some herbs, and other exercises to help you sleep longer and more in-depth. In the next part of this segment, we will be talking about which herbs can be used to help reduce blood sugar levels, so stay tuned! Please don't forget to subscribe, like, and Share!
