Natural Treatments for Diabetes

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of Today I’m going to share with you my top tips for reversing
diabetes and natural treatments for diabetes. I promise, if you follow the diet tips, the
supplement tips and the essential oil tips and lifestyle tips I give you, you’re going
to see results really, really fast. In fact, I had a patient, Kirby, who was able to reverse
his diabetes in just two weeks. I’ve had other patients in less time, some in just a few
months. I guarantee you can see great results with this. Number one, let’s start with diet. When it
comes to diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes, we really need to balance out blood sugar.
Diet-wise, there are certain foods that will help do that. First, let me kind of shape
a meal for you. Ideally, your meals are going to be high in three things. Protein, fiber
and healthy fat. So protein, fiber and healthy fat, those are the three things that are going
to help balance out those blood sugar levels. What’s going to throw it off? Sugar and carbohydrates.
Now, you want some carbohydrates, but just a smaller amount. If not, that blood sugar
is going to go up and down. So remember that, protein, fiber, healthy fat during all of
your meals. Ideally, you’re also going to get foods that
are very high in a type of mineral called chromium. Chromium picolinate is found in
high levels especially in broccoli. So for you, broccoli is the ideal superfood for diabetics
in helping balance out blood sugar levels. Also, consuming foods that are rich in magnesium.
Magnesium has been shown to also help blood sugar levels, so foods like grass-fed beef,
certain types of nuts and seeds, also, many vegetables are high in magnesium. So that’s
another place you want to go. The number three food you want to focus on
are foods that are high in fiber. This is probably the most important. You want to focus
on fiber-rich food, and by the way, if you want a list of the top 20 fiber-rich foods,
simply go to my website,, that’s D-R-A-X-E dot com, search “Fiber Foods” or
“High-Fiber Food,” and I’ve got a list there of the top 20. Some of those include artichokes,
figs, also things like broccoli, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds like chia, flax
seeds, pumpkin seeds are great, almonds, walnuts, celery, and there’s a lot longer list than
that. But you want to load up on that list of high-fiber foods and get as many of those
as you can. That’s going to support detoxification and going to support those healthy blood sugar
levels. The number four thing you want to do in terms
of diet is start using coconut oil. Coconut oil is great for burning fat. It’s great for
blood glucose levels. Start cooking with coconut oil and using coconut milk or coconut oil
in a morning superfood shake. Coconut oil is great, or else ghee, it’s G-H-E-E, or grass-fed
butter, all of those work for balancing out blood sugar levels. Get those healthy fatty
acids. And then lots of protein. Wild-caught salmon
is the best. After that, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and turkey, get more of that protein
in your diet. That’s the ideal sort of diet you want to be following if you have diabetes. Now, the foods you want to stay away from
are pretty obvious, but sugar and grains, really, you want to stay away from all sugar
the best you can. You want to replace it with stevia, a no-calorie natural sweetener. If
you have to use a sweetener, a little bit of raw honey in moderation can be okay. Once
your diabetes is reversed and you’re where you should be, raw local honey is another
sweetener you can consider, as well as molasses. Again, the big thing, I think you realize
you shouldn’t do a lot of sweets. But grains are another problem, especially gluten-containing
grains, white flour products, wheat bread, even whole-grain breads and oatmeal. All of
those types of things, you want to eliminate grains while you’re healing from diabetes. The other foods you want to eliminate as well
are going to be conventional dairy products like conventional milk. Certain types of dairy
can be okay, for instance, like a goat cheese, small amounts of raw organic goat cheese is
fine, but other things aren’t okay. You want to stay away from especially conventional
milk. It contains a form of casein that’s going to cause some major health issues and
blood sugar issues. The next thing you want to do is, here are
the best supplements for naturally reversing diabetes. Number one is take a chromium picolinate
supplement, 200 mg three times a day with your meals. So again, chromium picolinate,
most important supplement for diabetes, 200 mg three times a day. The next supplement is cinnamon. One teaspoon
in the morning for breakfast, one teaspoon for lunch or dinner. Getting cinnamon in is
great for blood sugar. Number three is a fish oil. That’s going to help reduce inflammation.
Fish oil is great for diabetes. Also, number four is going to be alpha-lipoic acid, known
as ALA. It really works with your pancreas in naturally balancing out blood sugar levels.
Number five is going to be magnesium. Magnesium is very effective at treating blood sugar
levels. Now, I want to talk about essential oils that
are also effective. Two essential oils I’d recommend are going to be cinnamon and coriander.
Coriander actually works with your liver and communication in helping balance out blood
sugar levels, and cinnamon works with your pancreas. So your liver and your pancreas,
two important organs for balancing out those blood glucose levels. What you can do is take
a couple drops of coriander, a couple drops of clove with one teaspoon of coconut oil,
rub those on the bottom of your feet, rub them on your body. You can even make your
own homemade body butter or body lotion with those. Those oils really help in maintaining
healthy blood glucose levels. Also, if you have diabetes, keep stress levels
low. If you get stressed out, it is absolutely going to affect your hormones and your cortisol,
which then in turn will affect your insulin levels. So you want to keep stress levels
low. I recommend a detox bath at night. Use some of the essential oils I talked about,
something like the coriander with lavender oil with Epsom salts. Soak in a bath at night
and relax. I recommend several times throughout your workday, get up and take a 10-minute
walk, taking deep breaths, relaxing, getting outside. And then exercising is also crucial. Burst
training exercise is the best, but really, any form of exercise, including weight training
or cardio, is good as well if you want to naturally reverse diabetes. So guys, this has been Dr. Axe talking about

  16. Thank you so much Dr Axe for your commitment to humanity. The fact that you care for us is what matters.

  17. You may want to add Potassium to your list of supplements. Most of us are Potassium deficient and Potassium is the most important electrolyte. A low carb, high fat diet, ketogenic diet will also tend to make one potassium deficient. To get the recommended amount of Potassium, 4700 mG. from food, you would need to eat 15 bananas a day or 5-7 cups of vegetables like spinach. Proper Potassium levels are critical for reversing Diabetes. I supplement with Potassium Citrate and eat my veggies to get my Potassium.

  18. Thank you. Usually good videos. Please warn men about plants that can damage their male hormone balance – soy, 2:20 flax and walnut, 6:00 lavender, etc. Therefore can't recommend this video. Use the natural foods eaten before 1960 plus salmon, coconut and avocado. 3:55 Yogurt and cheese is healthy. Milk isn't necessary for adults. Cook with butter. Olives, coconut meat and coconut flour are much better than the oils which lack the fiber.

  19. I agree with you Doctor….also great to reversr diabetes is Bgr 34 made with herbs and best ayurvedic medicine.

    I am afraid of mame and I do not know how to help her further. it keeps me on a diet that drops weight from 80 to 75kg during the diet. please help.

  21. Kudos for the Video! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried – Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a smashing exclusive product for reversing diabetes without the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my friend Sam after a lifetime of fighting got excellent results with it.

  22. recommending meat????carcinogenics in your diet, WHY PLAY RUSSIAN ROULLET with your health. Dairy?????? DO YOU WANT TO KILL PEOPLE OR CURE THEM

  23. Great video…
    Your basic keto diet… but be careful and limit your protein intake. The liver has the ability to convert the amino acids that are found in excess protein into sugar by way of gluconeogenesis. When you restrict your protein and occasionally even eliminate it for a day or two, you actually give your immune system the chance to perform something called autophagy. It's like cleaning out the garage and recycling all the junk protein's amino acids into something useful.

    Buy yourself a 50 count bottle of urine test strips for seeing if you're in keto.

  29. My friend proposed this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) for my weight and diabetes. I`d been following a firm exercise and also diet regime. I was able to decrease Thirty five points from my blood glucose levels after a day on the diet system. After 4 days, I lost Sixty points from my blood sugar levels. That worked very well, nevertheless, and I felt great. I`m so pleased which I was able to normalize my blood sugar levels..

  30. I had blood sugars of 42 ( the 3 month average blood sugar test). Which means I am pre diabetic I'm not obese I'm only 31, however the past 2 years my diet has gone awful fizzy drinks and lots of chocolate bars this was due to being very stressed. I'm working hard now to reverse this however if i do reverse the diagnosis and exercise keep my weight down and eat healthy the majority of the time would it effect me if I did have the odd piece off bread or the odd chocolate bar? Thanks

  31. Brown seaweed extract Modifilan helps with cardiovascular problems and diabetes.
    It was shown that Modifilan was effective in those patients with elevated cholesterol levels and who also had an insulin-dependent (Type 1) or insulin-independent (Type 2) diabetes.

    Modifilan was given to another group of 13 patients, 76.9% of whom had ischemia (including stenocardia, infarct myocardia and different forms of arythmia). Two of these patients have a possible family history of hyperlipidemia and five patients have diabetes (Type 2). The function of the kidney and liver were not affected and no side effects were observed with any patients using Modifilan during the trial period.
    One unexpected benefit of Modifilan reported by patients was improved intestinal function.
    We conclude that Modifilan is effective in treating people with high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. We recommend using Modifilan as a prophylactic and healing tonic for people with atherosclerosis and other hyperlipidemia conditions.

  32. DR. Axe 2 questions .. Is Raw Milk and Raw cheese ok for diabetes?? ..and second is it important to use Ceylon cinnamon so you don't hurt your liver with regular cinnamon ??

  33. I’m recently diagnosed with type 2 so of course I did my do diligence research and know exactly what worked for me and may work for you.

    Here is what you need to ingest daily:

    Kefir Probiotic
    Apple cider Vinegar
    Potato Starch
    MCT Oil Powder
    Low Carb Diet (80 carbs per day)

    This is what I did I went from a fasting 306 Blood Glucose weighing 192lbs to a fasting 88-90 Blood Glucose weighing 179lbs in 3 weeks. Most of the ingredients I mentioned can be consumed as a drink concoction in the morning for before breakfast to get it out of the way early in the day.

    I didn’t work out at all because of a work injury but I’m sure if I included 30 min of exercise per day my results would have been a week sooner. Do your research check out the items I mentioned and create a diet using those products for 30 days and Im sure you will feel better than you have in many years with your diabetes in control , energized and feeling more mentally focused in life.

    Good Luck Everyone
