Health-Wise: Simple & Natural Guide To Prevent Diabetes

by For Content

You may not give diabetes too much thought. But a report showed that around 29.1 million Americans suffer from diabetes. Diabetes is a very real danger to this country's population, and it is always better to be safe than sorry. The following guide will teach you how to prevent it through simple means that are also natural.

Tips To Prevent Diabetes

Consider the following points:


A study found that depriving yourself of sleep may lead to diabetes, because it causes some of your cells to use insulin improperly to produce energy. A lot of your energy comes from sugars in your body. But the sugar content will rise if your body cannot absorb it correctly.

The following may help you sleep:

  • Put your air conditioner at 60 to 67 degrees at night, as it helps your body feel sleepy.
  • Do not sleep with the lights on, because your body mistakes light as sunlight, and this may keep you up.
  • Take a warm bath about an hour before you go to sleep, as this will cause a drop in body heat temperature, making you feel sleepy.


Drinking a little alcohol in the form of wine or beer could help prevent diabetes because it helps your body control the amount of sugar that ends up in your blood system. Research concluded that you need to drink about 2 small drinks per day or 0.8 ounces a day. Be sure to consider drinking healthier options, like natural and organic wines or beers.

Avoid Refined Foods

Believe it or not, refined carbohydrates and sugars seem to put you in greater danger of developing diabetes, according to most experts. This is likely because your body cells absorb the sugar from these types of foods quickly, which could seem like your body has been flooded with sugar. But all you have to do is change your diet a bit with some of the following options:

  • Sprouted wild rice, brown rice, or black rice
  • Whole grains, like bran or oats
  • Sprouted bread
  • Raw honey, unsulphured blackstrap molasses, or raw coconut sugar instead of refined sugar
  • Stick to natural and organic fruits and vegetables

You can also talk to your health care specialist about what else you can do to keep yourself safe from diabetes. There are some things that may be specific to you, such as being overweight, which have been linked to diabetes, too. Contact a center like Sound Family Health for more help.
