A paradigm-shifting study indicates that the standard of care for diabetics, including synthetic insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs, increases morbidity and mortality from diabetes. Natural substances, on the other hand, have proven healing properties that if used could mitigate the global diabetes epidemic.
The research is quite clear – oral medications to treat type 2 diabetes do not alter the long-term progression of the disease. While these drugs can be quite effective in the short term, several different types are associated with increased all cause mortality and in particular an increased risk for dying due to cardiovascular disease.
Many diabetics already know about the benefits of a low-glycemic diet, but why haven't they heard about turmeric, one of the world's most extensively researched anti-diabetic plants?
