Widespread disease diabetes type 2

Medicinal mushrooms make a valuable contribution in prevention and therapy

Diabetes remains one of the greatest global health threats in the 21st century. According to figures from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), around 415 million people worldwide suffer from the disease. By 2040, the IDF even forecasts an increase to 642 million. In Germany, the country with the highest diabetes prevalence in Europe, the number of diabetes patients is also increasing. The good news: With naturopathy you can do something against diabetes type 2 very well and sustainably. Thus, medicinal mushrooms – also known as vital mushrooms – have proven their worth both preventively and in the treatment of metabolic disease.

Modern lifestyle sins promote the disease

In the development of type 2 diabetes, lack of exercise, an excessively rich and unbalanced diet, and the associated obesity play the main roles. Particularly dangerous: Type 2 diabetes usually develops insidiously at first and is often paired with high blood pressure and high triglyceride levels. Often, the disease is only detected at an advanced stage. In most cases, serious consequential damage has already occurred.

Medicinal mushrooms - efficient helpers from nature

Natural remedies such as medicinal mushrooms have proven themselves well in the therapy of type 2 diabetes, both as a precautionary and supportive measure. This is shown by many years of experience in naturopathic practice.

For example, the vital mushroom Coprinus is said to have a regenerating effect on the pancreas, sensitization of the receptors for insulin uptake and a blood sugar-lowering effect. Its antidiabetic properties are mainly attributed to the vanadium it contains. The medicinal mushroom Maitake has a beneficial effect on fat metabolism and the sensitivity of insulin receptors. In type 2 diabetes, blood pressure, blood lipids, triglycerides and weight are very important parameters. The intake of Maitake can help to get these influencing factors under control – even in the run-up to the disease.

Balanced diet and exercise

In order to counteract type 2 diabetes, the abandonment of an unhealthy lifestyle is of utmost importance. Regular exercise can lower weight and blood sugar levels. Recommended activities include brisk walks, cycling, swimming or walking. In addition, experts advise a fundamental change in diet. To delay an excessively rapid rise in blood sugar, the consumption of sweets and fast food should be greatly reduced or, preferably, completely eliminated. Instead, a diet rich in vitamins and vital substances is important. High-fiber foods with slowly digestible carbohydrates, such as vegetables and mushrooms, are ideal.

In the treatment of type 2 diabetes, medicinal mushrooms are a good supplement to a balanced, low-carbohydrate diet in combination with a varied exercise program.
