Natural Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes

From supplements to guided meditation, your diabetes treatment could include traditional medicines, alternative therapies, and natural remedies, too.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health, defines complementary and alternative medicine as a “group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine.” Complementary medicine is used with conventional treatments, whereas alternative medicine is used instead of conventional medicine.

Although some may be effective, others aren’t or can even be harmful. If you want to try complementary or alternative medicine, talk to your doctor about the pros and cons and what may be a good idea for you.
