Diabetes is considered as a disease in which the deficiency or excess of blood sugar causes other health problems.

This is caused by the lack of a hormone named insulin in the body.

Generally, the symptoms of diabetes include increased thirst, weight loss which occurs suddenly, tiredness and fatigue and longer duration to heal.


Here are some natural ways to help you deal with diabetes.

1. Cinnamon

Researchers have been investigating a number of powerful natural agents that can help you stabilize your blood sugar, and once again, cinnamon has proven itself as a viable contender in the fight against diabetes, as the study in Diabetic Medicine reveals.

One of cinnamon’s most impressive health benefits is its ability to improve blood glucose control.

For example, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has previously been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

However, as helpful as supplements like cinnamon can be, they should not be misconstrued as cures.

They are not substitutes for proper diet and lifestyle choices. You cannot properly address your diabetes if you still maintain a sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary choices — cinnamon supplementation or not!

  • Mix one teaspoon cinnamon in a cup of warm water. Drink it daily.
  • You can also swallow a pinch of cinnamon with warm water every day.
