Natural hone remedies to treat diabetes at home

Diabetes treatment: 15 home remedies to treat diabetes at home (thinkstock photos/getty images)

India is said to be the diabetes capital of the world. With nearly 50 million people in india suffering from diabetes, the country has a big challenge to face. First, let's know what is diabetes. The elevated sugar in the blood is called diabetes. There are two primary reasons behind diabetes - one is when our body stops producing insulin and second is when the body does not respond to insulin that is produced by the body. Insulin is broken down by the body and used as energy, which is transported to the cells. There are two types of diabetes - type I diabetes and type ii diabetes. Let's know about them in a little detail: 

Type I diabetes 


Type I diabetes usually occurs in people who are below the age 20 and that is why it is also called as juvenile diabetes. In this type, the body becomes partially or completely unable to produce insulin. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease. In this, your immune system attacks the pancreas from where the insulin is produced, thereby making the pancreas inefficient or unable to produce insulin. Type I diabetes cannot be prevented, it can only be controlled with healthy lifestyle changes.

Type ii diabetes

Type ii diabetes is more common than type I diabetes in india. Type ii diabetes usually happens to people who are above the age of 40. This type of diabetes is caused due to insulin resistance. In this case, the pancreas produces insulin but the body is not able to respond to it properly. There can be many reasons behind type ii diabetes. Some of the reasons can be being overweight, high blood pressure, having a poor diet, taking too much stress, hormone imbalance, certain medications and leading a sedentary lifestyle. Though type ii diabetes can be reversed. 

Let's us know some natural ways by which we can treat diabetes at home: 

What not to eat: 

There are some foods which can negatively impact your diabetes. So, the first thing you need to do is to remove these foods from your diet. 


1. Refined sugar - we all know that sugar, until it is in its most natural form, is bad for people suffering from diabetes. When consumed, refined sugar spikes the blood sugar rapidly. Sometimes even the natural form like honey can cause a sudden spike in the blood sugar levels. So, it's better to avoid refined sugar by all means if you are a diabetic. 


2. Whole grains - grains that have gluten in them should be avoided. Gluten is associated with diabetes as its intake can cause leaky gut leading to inflammation which in turn can lead to auto immune diseases. 


3. Alcohol - alcohol consumption is directly related to diabetes. Alcohol not only damages your liver but also attacks the pancreas that produces insulin. Diabetes is linked with consumption of heavy alcohol which is two to three glasses a day. Beer should especially be avoided as it has a lot of carbohydrates


4. Cow's milk - just like whole grains, cow milk can trigger the immune system which can lead to inflammation. Milk coming from sheep and goat is not harmful in fact it helps to maintain the blood sugar level. But the conventional cow milk can be dangerous for you if you are suffering from diabetes. 


5. Gmo foods - gmo foods have the capability to promote diabetes along with causing liver and kidney diseases. Go for products which are labeled as gmo-free. 

What to eat and do 

Cinnamon 

Cinnamon contains a bioactive compound that can help to fight and prevent diabetes. Cinnamon is known to stimulate the insulin activity and thus regulate the blood sugar level. As excess of anything is bad, likewise cinnamon if taken in excess can increase the risk of liver damage due to a compound called coumarin present in it. The true cinnamon, not the one buy from shops (cassia cinnamon) is safer to have.

How to consume cinnamon 

- mix half or one teaspoon of grounded cinnamon with warm water and have it once daily. 

- boil raw cinnamon in 2 glasses of water. Let it cool for 30 minutes and have it daily.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is easily found in indian households. Though it's bitter in taste, but combing it with buttermilk makes it taste better. Usually, aloe vera is used for beauty purposes but as it has anti-inflammatory properties it can heal the wounds. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it is said to control the blood sugar levels. 

Jamun 

Jamun and its leaves have proven to be helpful in lowering the blood sugar levels. Consuming approximately 100 grams of jamun every day is said to show tremendous improvement in your blood sugar levels.

Vitamin c

Vitamin c is not only good for skin but also for diabetes. Recent studies have shown that consuming approximately 600 mg of vitamin c daily can improve the blood sugar level significantly. People who have chronic diabetes should consume foods rich in vitamin c every day. Some foods rich in vitamin c are amla, orange, tomato and blueberry. 

Exercise

One of the main reasons behind type ii diabetes is being overweight. Any kind of physical activity, be it yoga, zumba, aerobics, gymming, playing sports can significantly improve blood sugar level by maintaining your weight. Not only this, walking every day can help to reduce the blood sugar level tremendously.

Male infection and home remedies

Male infection and home remedies
Male yeast infection causes are many, but mainly there are only three causes. The first is unprotected sex with a woman who has yeast infection, the second is prolonged use of antibiotics, which reduces the population of the friendly bacteria that control the population of these organisms, and the third is stress. Male yeast infection symptoms and causes are usually related to each other. A lot of people wonder can men get yeast infections or can men get yeast infections from a woman. In reality, men can get yeast infections too, though not as easily as women can get them. Male yeast infection treatment can be done with the help of home remedies. Just as in the case of women, men can also benefit greatly from home remedies, which act as male yeast infection treatment. These home remedies can offer a beneficial male yeast infection cure. Thus, male yeast infection symptoms can be treated with these useful home remedies for male yeast infection:

The first step to the treatment of these yeast infections is to inhibit the growth and the spread of yeast. To do this, stop the intake of sugar. To limit the intake of sugar in your diet, stay away from grains that contain gluten. Simple carbohydrates also increase the level of sugar in your blood and so, should be avoided when you have an infection. Also, the skin where the infection is spreading should be kept clean in order to restrict the spread of yeast. Treating male yeast infection should ideally start with inhibiting the growth of the microorganisms.
You can also get yeast infection relief by yogurt. The bacterium lactobacillus acidophilus contained in yogurt can help in improving the condition. This bacterium destroys the fungal strain, therefore improving the skin infection and effectively treating it completely. Yogurt has been considered an effective yeast infection remedy for both men and women. Yeast infection remedy by yogurt is promoted by both consuming yogurt and applying it on the affected parts of your body.
Male yeast infection treatment can also be done by vinegar. Washing the affected area of the skin with a diluted solution of vinegar can help in improving the condition. If you are planning on treating male yeast infections naturally, you should use apple cider vinegar instead of synthetic vinegar.
For yeast infection relief, garlic can also be used. Garlic has many therapeutic properties, and the compounds present in garlic can help control yeast to a large extent. As a yeast infection relief home remedy, consume two cloves of garlic with warm water everyday. This can help purify your blood and normalize the body ph, enabling your body to fight off the infection.
Colon cleansing is another effective method of controlling yeast infections in men. Male yeast infection grows in an acidic environment and therefore, cleansing of the colon can effectively purify your body and increase the ph. Colon cleansing can also help in bringing yeast infection relief from itching. Drinking plenty of water everyday ensures that your body is free of the toxins that build up in your body. This also ensures that your body never builds up acidity.
If your skin is getting affected due to yeast infections, taking warm sitz baths can have a beneficial effect. This is a bath in which you bathe in a sitting position and in which your hips and buttocks are immersed in water. This yeast infection remedy is a natural treatment for this contagious infection. Adding apple cider vinegar to your bathwater allows your condition to heal faster.
Coconut oil or coconut capsules are extremely beneficial for this condition. You can get a massage with coconut oil and continue applying the oil on your skin everyday. Other oils that can be beneficial in this condition include oregano oil, the oil of cinnamon bark, and tea tree oil. These essential oils should not be applied to the skin directly. Instead, make sure that you mix these oils with some carrier oil, usually a vegetable oil, before you apply it on your skin.
These home remedies for male yeast infections have no potential side effects. I.
