Try Black Seed Oil as a Natural Treatment for Diabetes
Nigella sativa is a well-known treatment for a number of conditions, ranging from asthma, liver diseases, cancer, high blood pressure, to rheumatism and diabetes. The black cumin seed of Nigella sativa contains a high level of essential oils, which is why black seed oil has immense medicinal healing power, especially when dealing with diabetes. Research suggests this is due to the high levels of antioxidant activity that is found in black seed, which helps to protect the pancreatic cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. This makes black seed oil one of the best alternative treatments for people who suffer from diabetes (according to “Bangladesh Journal of Pharmacology”, 2009). We recommend that you take black seed oil or black seed oil capsules in conjunction with any prescribed medication. (Always consult your healthcare practitioner.)
You should always follow any diabetic diet that has been prescribed by your doctor or medical practitioner to gain the maximum effectiveness of black seed oil.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLACK SEED OIL
One spoonful of precious black seed oil has been known to hinder many diseases. The list of health benefits goes on and on:
Diabetes mostly occurs in children and young adults. It’s mostly treated with insulin.
A healthy diet that controls starches and sugars (carbohydrates) is important. Black seed oil is is more commonly used for type 2 diabetes, but under a Dr.’s supervision may be helpful in diabetes 1. Regular exercise can reduce risk for heart disease and other complications.
For diabetes 1 symptoms include sudden weight loss, excessive thirst and hunger, frequent urination, nausea, vomiting, poor growth, and lack of energy. Although black seed oiI may help in diabetes 1, it should be prescribed by a Practitioner. If it is not treated, a condition called ketosis occurs. Ketosis can cause coma and even death.
Diabetes usually occured in older adults. However, it is now becoming more common in children and teenagers. It is in this type that black cumin seed has been shown to be most beneficial.
Those with type 2 diabetes often are overweight and unfit. They cannot make enough insulin to keep their blood glucose in control. A meal plan for weight control and regular exercise is the first treatment tried.
Pay attention in your diet if you are including foods with hydrogenated fats. These modern processed fats have been discovered in Scientific papers to cause many illnesses such as Diabetes, heart disease, etc. etc. If diet and exercise are not enough, medicine may be required. Black seed has been shown in scientific study to benefit diabetic conditions.
