Herbs For Diabetes Type 2

Individuals suffering from type 2 diabetes are always looking for ways to help control their condition. While many go the traditional route of doctor prescribed medications, others are turning to herbs.

Herbs are an effective method of treatment for diabetes that have been around for thousands of years. The major appeal for using herbs is that they are all natural and, therefore, do not contain any of the side effects that can accompany prescribed medicines. While some side effects are simply a mere annoyance, others can be quite substantial and life-altering for the diabetic.

Herbs can be derived from several different parts of the world. The most common areas for their origin are India and China, although there are a few that have been introduced from the West. Despite their country of origin, when you consider the centuries that they have been successfully utilized for treatment of medical conditions their validity cannot be disputed.

Some of the more popular diabetes herbs from India include Fenugreek, Gurmar or Gymnema Sylvestre and Pterocarpus Marsupium. When you look at China, the favorites with the most use have been Ginsneg, Quei Fu Di Huang Wan, Rou Gui or Fu Zi, and Tang Niao Kang. Of course, green tea has always been a favorite and not only offers significant assistance for diabetes but has also been proven to a healthy addition to an overall balanced food plan.

Originating from the West, you can use Bitter Melon, Bilberry, Aloe Vera, Salt Bush and Garlic. But before you start on a specific herb the best advice would be to visit a herbalist to talk over your condition and see what they would recommend as a good start-up plan.
