Turmeric – Natural Remedy for Diabetes


I use turmeric in my kitchen a lot. I do so for a few reasons. The main one is that it is seen as a natural way to possibly reverse diabetes, or, at least to help me to control this lifestyle illness. I am also a lover of most things cooked with curry and since turmeric contains the substance used to make curry, then I am sure you can understand why I love to use this Indian spice at home.

This post will be brief. I will be sharing with you a research about turmeric as a natural remedy for diabetes. Let me first point you to an earlier article I wrote on said matters. Please click Turmeric for Diabetes – The Cure

Turmeric is popular in India because of the spice it contains – curcumin. It is said to:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Reduces diabetic complications
  • Prevents diabetic complications
  • Regulates blood sugar
  • Aid in digestion
  • Ease the discomforts associated with ulcerative colitis
  • Protect us against cancer

According to the review which was published in the Evidenced – Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, curcumin could:

  • help with insulin resistance
  • hyperglycemia
  • hyperlipidemia
  • organ failure
  • reduce/prevent diabetic complications

Please note that thus far curcumin is being used to effectively treat eye conditions associated with diabetes. It is also worth knowing that there is a cry for further research as it relates to turmeric and curcumin.

The biggest win for this century is that we are now embracing and proving that diabetes can be effectively controlled via lifestyle changes involving our diet and activity levels. Yes, we can significantly reduce our blood sugar levels and possibly stop taking our medication, if, and only if we maintain a certain lifestyle.

This lifestyle dictates that we lose weight, eat whole foods which are rich in fiber, reduce our carbohydrate intake, eat healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, olive and coconut oils, exercise and be happy, thereby reducing our stress level and sleeping for the required time.


Yes, becoming diabetic-free is that natural and doable. Please read this article for some recipes using turmeric. I trust that you will both enjoy your meals with turmeric and that, like me, you will experience the joys of seeing your numbers reduced, including your complications (blurred vision, nerve pains, etc.).

      Thank you. Sorry, I am clueless about hair, but, I am sure that eating lots of fruits and vegetables and cutting out junk foods would be a good place to start for most issues relating to our health.

    Every time that I visit this website, I learn something.
    I know ginger, but I have never heard of Turmeric before. Thanks for sharing Josephine.
    Guess what, I’m all over Google reading up on Turmeric now.
    What amazing health benefits are available from natural products and we perish because of a lack of knowledge.
    As all your posts, very informative. Thanks
    Cheers 🙂

      I am so happy that the website has this impact on you. The idea is to share information so that others will be more aware of foods that are available to heal diabetes and the bonus is that other illnesses will be healed as well. Please continue to read and share with your loved ones. Are you diabetic?

    I am a believer in natural remedies for modern day ailments, and it is
    fair to say that natural remedies should cure all modern day ailments.

    Ailments that were non-existent before the Industrial Revolution and the production line which increased production and therefore a whole litany of packaged products for consumption.

    I agree with referring to diabetes here as an ailment and not a disease because in most cases it is preventable. Also interesting to note this page is setting a good example by displaying images of foods you do not buy prepackaged.

      Yes, packaged, processed foods can be a big issue healthwise. I find that sticking with whole foods is the way for me. I can see that you feel the same. Please remember to share the post with loved ones. Cheers and all the best that life has to offer.

    The only symptom that I had was tingling in my legs especially at night after I retired to bed. The tingling became more severe where I could not get them to stop. I thought I had restless leg syndrome. My doctor tested me for diabetes and found that I had type II diabetes and the sugar was attacking my legs because it had no place to go. He put me on a sugar free diet and Actos and within one to two days my symptom were gone.. One day I got extremely sick, could not keep anything down, had blurry vision, a rapid heartbeat.I Started taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily. I am writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the metformin (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on Diabetes herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 7 weeks use of the Diabetes natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well.

      Julia, I am happy you are better now. May God be praised. Did you change your lifestyle (diet and exercise)?

    I had no idea that I had type II diabetes. I was diagnosed at age 50, after complaining to my doctor about being very tired. There is no family history of this disease. I’m a male and at the time of diagnosis, I weighed about 215. (I’m 6’2″)Within 6 months, I had gained 30 to 35 pounds, and apparently, the diabetes medicines (Actos and Glimiperide) are known to cause weight gain. I wish my doctor had mentioned that, so I could have monitored my weight more closely. I was also taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily December 2017 our family doctor started me on Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case blurred vision, frequent urination, or weakness. I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This is a breakthrough for all diabetes sufferers.

      Thanks for sharing with us and I am happy that you were helped with a mixture of herbs. This confirms that food is indeed for our healing and needs to be used as our medicine. In addition to herbs, I am confident that you should do well with a complete lifestyle change. Be encouraged and continue to rid our planet of diabetes and other lifestyle illnesses. Be blessed.
