  • Food plan
  • Herbal plan
  • Exercise

Food plan

Fibre-rich foods, especially only plant foods (vegetables, fruits, legumes, husk and unrefined grains) that contain dietary fibre and soluble fibre are effective in managing diabetes. These include foods like psyllium husk, beans, lentils, flaxseeds, citrus fruits and vegetables that are low in glycemic index (GI).

Nuts: Health Total food plan includes almonds, walnuts and avocado that control sugar level. They keep you full for a long time, thus curbing hunger pangs. We replace foods that are high in saturated fats with nuts since they are a good source of fibre, low in GI and rich in protein.

Soybeans: The food plan also includes soy protein present in tofu, soya granules, soy milk, soy yoghurt, soy nuggets, soy nuts and other foods made from soybeans.

Omega-3 fatty acids: Eating Omega 3-rich foods helps in managing diabetes effectively. Health Total Diabetes Management Plan includes fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna and sardines. Supplement sources include fish oil capsules, rice bran oil, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil.

Functional foods like neem, karela, methi and cinnamon help in controlling the blood sugar levels.

Herbal plan

Herbs such as gudmar, mamejava and jamunbeej are added in the diabetes management plan as they improve blood sugar level. Supplements like B-complex, B12 and Folates, and antioxidants help in rejuvenating and preventing degeneration of tissues in diabetic persons. These supplements also boost energy levels.

Exercise plan

We recommend a mild exercise plan, which includes 30 to 40 minutes of active exercise at least 5 times a week. It can give you amazing results in terms of weight loss and helps to manage diabetes effectively.
