Living with diabetes is a difficult task that people have to go through every day. It’s why people living with the disease are such brave and persuasive people. The disease causes an array of health problems like heart disease, blindness, nerve damage, stroke, coma, infections, etc.

It’s why it’s important to think from different perspectives and to look for different solutions to improve our health state and balance out our levels.

We’ve compiled a list of some tips that people can try out themselves in order to make life with the condition better. Read below…

1. Uncooked Food

Eating raw food that our oven or frying pan hasn’t gotten in touch with is an excellent alternative for a way to eat food that actually can be beneficial. It’s because the food that we cook gets in touch with many chemicals that damage our bodies.

Eating foods rich in soluble fibers does a great deal for our body since it’s said that it brings down the levels of LDL cholesterol, so we should ensure we’re packing in apples, parsnips, winter squash, carrots, beets, berries, apricots, and other citrus fruits, that not only benefit our health but are delicious as well!

Try eating most of the food raw, since it helps and refreshes our system.

2. Wholesome Nutrition

If we want to improve our health, we should eat more foods that are rich in antioxidants and are filled with loads of vitamins and minerals.

It’s why we should put fruits and veggies at the forefront of our nutrition to help prevent various diseases like artery wall damage, elevated sugar levels, etc.

3. Get Our Sweat On

Bettering our overall lifestyle by following properly balanced nutrition and regular exercising is the key to a happy, long, and healthy life. A regular exercise routine is crucial to lowering the risk of developing a disease like diabetes.

If we get our heart rate up we are making ourselves more and more insulin sensitive, and our cholesterol levels will go down as well. In order to have the needed energy for working out, we should also eat the right food that’s going to make us feel good and ready.

That is why food and exercise always go hand in hand. We must ensure to start off small if we can’t do too much physical exercise, we need to start by doing something small every day until our system gets used to it.

4. Meditate The Stress Away

If we undergo a lot of stress during the day, that could possibly indicate the development of various diseases and health issues as time goes by.

That is because noradrenaline and cortisol, which are the hormones released when we are stressed out blow up the insulin levels, as well as the levels of glucose.

That can lead to health issues in the future. That is why we need to make sure we learn how to balance out our stress levels and how to handle our feeling when we’re under-stressed. Meditation practices like yoga can help us out with that.

5. Basil

If living with diabetes and taking Metformin, taking Isabgol is a good idea, if Metformin created problems and people are having stomach pain. But such people should consult a professional before doing that though, just to make sure.

11. Reflexology
