It’s no wonder that more and more people worldwide are looking for natural cures for diabetes – what with the continuously increasing number of people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and the serious side effects associated with drugs used to treat diabetes and diabetic complications.
Diabetes is now the 6th leading cause of death in Western society.
Over 194 million people suffer with diabetes worldwide. This global figure is estimated to reach 333 million by 2025 if current trends continue. Recent figures from the American Diabetes Association reveal more than 20 million Americans are afflicted with the disease, while approximately six million more live undiagnosed and another 40 million or more may be considered pre-diabetic.
Natural remedies for diabetes exist have been used for thousands of years. There is a large body of evidence available showing that natural cures for diabetes, including diabetes supplements; moderate exercise and a good diet, can be a successful treatment option for some diabetics.
Conventional drug based treatments for type 2 diabetes involve controlling blood sugar levels. Diabetic complications are less likely to develop if this can be achieved.
When it comes to pharmaceutical drugs, diabetics need to thoroughly educate themselves about the side effects of any drugs their doctor may prescribe. A thorough review of the literature allows diabetics to make fully informed decisions about treatment options – conventional, alternative and complementary.
The main classes of diabetic (oral agent) treatment drugs are glitazones, sulfonylureas, biguarides, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, thiazolidinediones and meglitinides...
The more serious side effects of these drugs include:
Common side effects include:
The number and severity of these side effects is frightening!
Key Point: Drugs commonly prescribed in the treatment of diabetes only suppress the systemic damage that has already occurred, and most often create further deterioration and weakening.
Where possible, diabetics should try to reduce their dependency on drugs and seek to achieve metabolic control of diabetes through diet, supplementation and exercise.
An FDA approved diabetes drug Muraglitazar, was found to double the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death, as per a study released on the Journal of the American Medical Association’s website (JAMA).
A study by the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, titled ‘Effect of muraglitazar on death and major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus’ presented this conclusion:
“Compared with placebo or pioglitazone, muraglitazar was associated with an excess incidence of the composite end point of death, major adverse cardiovascular events (MI, stroke, TIA), and CHF. This agent should not be approved to treat diabetes based on laboratory end points until safety is documented in a dedicated cardiovascular events trial."

Two Commonly Prescribed Diabetes Drugs May Cause Heart Failure and Fluid Build-up!
“Two diabetes medications, taken by more than 6 million Americans, may lead to serious side effects, including the onset of congestive heart failure.
Oral drugs such as Pioglitazone and Rosiglitazone can cause or exacerbate heart failure and pulmonary edema. Both medications among a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones are used for the treatment of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes mellitus.
Researchers report that from discontinuing with these medications and administering diuretics, sufferers no longer exhibited the signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure and pulmonary edema.
The Food and Drug Administration approved Rosiglitazone and Pioglitazone in 1999. The prescribing information indicates that the drugs should not be used by individuals with heart conditions, particularly in combination with insulin."

The dangers associated with diabetes drugs have forced many sufferers into researching natural cures for diabetes. Natural diabetes cures usually include supplements. Of these (to date) the most popular supplement options involve diabetes and herbs and/or minerals with the inclusion of a few other specialty nutrients - listed below.
I will discuss the limitations of these supplements further down!
Clinical data has shown the most effective herbs in addressing diabetes are:
Supplements are usually formulated around a combination of the following ‘diabetic vitamins and minerals, specialty nutrients and supporting herbal extracts with perhaps only one or two of the above key herbals included:
The main problem with virtually all diabetes supplements in the market is that they do not contain all the correct nutrients and therefore do not address diabetes from a holistic perspective.
They aim only at blood sugar control!
There’s always key ingredients left out - this significantly compromises the efficacy of the product!
Why is this the case?
Because supplements are manufactured to a price! The limitations of this approach mean they lack crucial ingredients which are too expensive to be included but which are critical to treating diabetes and its complications in a complete and holistic manner.
What diabetics need is for a professional supplement company to set out with a goal to create the best diabetes supplement formula that nutritional science allows. This means giving the formulator a free hand to use all ingredients necessary, in the right amounts and in the most efficacious forms:
No Exceptions Or Restrictions!
The result would be a supplement that would lead all others promoted as natural cures for diabetes because it would address all aspects of diabetic care:-
And most importantly with no adverse side effects!
A broad spectrum of efficious and compatible ingredients addresses not only the first two of these key aims but also helps protect organs from serious associated disease:
by enhancing immune system reactions and antioxidant action. Effective diabetes supplements must be good multi taskers!
The general types of imbalances at the source of most chronic conditions, including diabetes, include:
This is where supplements form an integral part of natural cures for diabetes because unlike drugs there are no dangerous side effects and -
They address the root cause of the problem!
While type 1 diabetes only affects 5 to 10 percent of people with diabetes it is an extremely restrictive disorder for those living with it. Type 1 diabetics need to monitor their blood sugar levels and in more severe cases inject themselves with insulin about 5 times a day.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin producing cells in the pancreas.
To cure type 1 diabetes - damage to the pancreas must be corrected! Thus far no natural cures for diabetes type 1 exist.
I have been privy to the research of one supplement company who has achieved a major breakthrough with the creation of a natural science formula for people with Type 2 diabetes, or pre-diabetic symptoms, i.e. impaired glucose tolerance (IGT).
It does everything I’ve mentioned above and very importantly, this cutting edge formula is not made to a pre-determined price.
The manufacturer set out with only one non-flexible goal – to produce the most effective diabetes supplement possible – one which addresses diabetes and all its complications holistically.
The organizational structure of this company and their clever cost efficient marketing and distribution policies (which do not involve MLM marketing) have allowed them to do this, and offer it at a reasonable price within the purchasing range of most people I believe.
This supplement contains 31 bioavailable compounds and
It's called - 'Systemic Care'
View Systemic Care
The R&D department of this company is headed by a world renowned bio-scientist – a scientist who has been hired by governments around the world to develop complex natural formulas which their own scientists could not (including brain formulas for the NASA space program).
He has now developed this diabetes supplement that produced amazing results during its testing period. In a large majority of the type 2 diabetics tested, their condition was reversed.
Systemic Care is now commercially available.
It is manufactured by the Xtend-Life Company in New Zealand. Because a number of the more critical and highly expensive ingredients are susceptible to destruction by stomach acid, Systemic Care tablets have been enteric coated to protect them until they reach the upper intestine where absorption into the bloodstream takes place.

And just before you go – a quick mention about the importance of omega 3 fatty acids with natural cures for diabetes.
Omega 3 fatty acids should be included as an essential component in all natural cures for diabetes. That’s because they offer scientifically established cardiovascular benefits (lowering triglycerides & blood pressure) - this is important to diabetics because they have an increased risk for heart attack and stroke.
The benefits of fish oil supplements are crucial to the health of diabetics and quality omega 3 fish oil supplements should be a part of all diabetics supplement regimes.
