A natural method of reversing type 2 diabetes, freeing you entirely from its clutches and returning your life and physical condition to normal, might seem to be too good to be true. Maybe its something to be hoped for, but not attained. Fortunately, you can make this dream a practical reality!
With a careful application of diet, lifestyle changes, exercise, and other diabetes-defeating techniques, you can banish the disease from your system permanently in many cases... although there is always a chance that a specific case will prove incurable. Ultimately, since type 2 diabetes isn't etched indelibly into your genetic material, it is usually reversible through natural means.

The sooner you begin your course of natural reversal, the better, since it is easier to return to a normal state when you haven't yet moved too far away from it. You also need to map out your plan of action and have the dedication and self-discipline to stick to it until you have conquered your internal foe... and then continue with a healthy lifestyle that will prevent recurrence of the blood sugar beast.
There is no single factor that will reverse the tide of type 2 diabetes. Rather, it's obtained by combining several different approaches, emphasizing those that work best and reducing emphasis on those that don't work. Throughout the process you should have a medical professional periodically check your condition, just in case your plan is proving unsuccessful. Then you can get treatment with medicines before serious harm is done to your body.
Exercise and diet are the two main pillars on which your reversal efforts will rest. You should plan to exercise regularly, preferably daily, with some type of moderate exercise such as walking... or working out on a rowing machine or elliptical trainer. You don't need to become a muscle-bound action movie star. The idea is to tone your body, release helpful, revitalizing hormones and chemicals into your bloodstream, trim your fat, and improve your circulation, all of which will help in reversing the symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
Diet is the other crucial part of any diabetes-reversal program. Eating plenty of healthy, high-quality natural food is the key to diet (easier than you thought, huh?). Eat smaller, more numerous meals with fruit and vegetables in each meal, if possible. Nuts are an excellent food for diabetics out to cure their disease, as are lean meat, fish, and egg whites... these protein and good fat rich items, in fact, can help to reduce the blood sugar impact of carbohydrates themselves. Eating a reasonable amount to gain or maintain a normal weight is also highly recommended, since even a small decrease in body fat is sometimes enough to stop insulin resistance, lower blood sugar levels and return them to normal.
Beyond these two basic, essential parts of your reversal program, there are many other things you can do to try to help rid your body of type 2 diabetes. You can experiment with cinnamon, olive oil, and vitamin C, all of which appear to have at least some positive effect in fighting diabetes. There are other herbal remedies as well, and some home remedies such as drinking apple extract, although the effects of these are anecdotal only.
Reducing stress is an under-rated method of reversing diabetes. Some type 2 diabetes may, in fact, be caused almost completely by stress. Exercise helps to alleviate stress but you should also seriously consider setting aside an hour or two each day for meditation, yoga or even a hobby to give yourself a mental and emotional respite from daily pressure.
Combining all these different approaches into one plan, you will be giving yourself a fighting chance to permanently rid your body of type 2 diabetes.
