Treatment of diabetes with folk remedies. Causes of occurrence. Symptoms
Diabetes mellitus is a disease that is characterized by a high sugar content and a partial lack or complete lack of insulin in the blood. Treatment of diabetes with folk remedies or medication primarily involves the normalization of the content of these substances in the blood, as well as the adjustment of the work of internal organs, systems and metabolic processes that are violated in this disease. Symptoms of diabetes are thirst and dry mouth, increased appetite (especially a strong craving for sweets), fatigue, furunculosis, itching on the skin, frequent infectious diseases that are not amenable to quick treatment.
Causes of Diabetes
Often, diabetes does not occur immediately, and this disease is not characterized by any clinically manifestations. Its main reasons are:
- Heredity. Children born in pairs, where at least one of the members has diabetes, are automatically at risk.
- Obesity. According to statistics, overweight people are most susceptible to this endocrine disease.
- Diseases that destroy beta cells, such as pancreatitis, cancer, diseases of the glands.
- Viral infections. For example, smallpox, hepatitis, some forms of flu. This reason is most likely secondary or auxiliary, that is, an obese person after the flu has significantly more “chances” to get diabetes.
- Stress and emotional stress.
- Age. Most people with diabetes are sick 40-45 years.
Drug or folk treatment of diabetes?
First of all, we want to draw attention to the fact that diabetes should be treated only under the close supervision of a doctor. Despite the method that will be chosen for this, in any case, a diet is necessary. She will be appointed individually on the basis of the patient’s characteristics: the level of metabolic disturbances and insulin production. There are generally accepted recommendations: the reduction or complete cessation of the use of sugar and starch, as well as products containing them.This list includes bakery products, cereals, chilli fruits, potatoes, dried fruits. During the day, allowed the use of honey and honey water.
Diabetes treatment of folk remedies
Research into the development of new drugs led to the identification of a number of plants with a pronounced anti-diabetic function. Both physicians and phytotherapy patients are attracted by the absence of side effects, contraindications and negative effects on the internal organs. And the main positive feature is a mild effect on the body. To date, more than 200 medicinal plants are used to treat diabetes, which are used in the form of decoctions, tinctures, tinctures and syrups. Most of them have already been recognized as official medicine and are being successfully used in it. Treatment of diabetes with folk remedies implies a hypoglycemic effect on the body. For this, burdock (leaves and cuttings), flax seeds, empty ears of oats and bean leaves are most often used. These plants have a strong sugar lowering effect. In order for the treatment of diabetes mellitus with folk remedies to bring results, a comprehensive approach is needed: exercise, diet and insulin therapy.In this case, under the supervision of a physician, it is necessary to reduce the level of need for insulin and medicines.
How and why does it work?
Today, herbal remedies occupy one of the first places in the fight against diabetes and complications associated with it. Through clinical research and scientific experiments, it was determined that the substances that make up medicinal plants have alkalizing properties. By creating such an environment, they contribute to the conversion of glucose to mannose or fructose. For their metabolism does not require insulin and, accordingly, the need for it is significantly reduced. Some plants contribute to the activation of metabolic processes or have an immunostimulating effect, thus normalizing disorders in the body. Another sub-category of herbal remedies has a tonic effect, activates the autonomic and central nervous systems.
