Diabetes Symptoms & Causes
Diabetes is a disorder characterized by high levels of sugar, or glucose, in the blood. Increased glucose levels are usually caused by a deficiency of insulin — a hormone that lowers blood sugar. Sugar is used to stimulate cells, especially brain cells. However, high blood sugar can be dangerous to a person’s health if left unchecked.
There are four types of diabetes:
TYPE 1 DIABETES
Chronic diabetes begins at any age, but especially in children and adolescents. With Type 1 diabetes, the body’s immune system attacks insulin, creating high levels of glucose in the body.
TYPE 2 DIABETES
Chronic diabetes usually occurs in adults aged 40+. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body reacts to the action of insulin, which in turn leads to an increase in blood sugar.
Diabetes mellitus is caused by excessive blood sugar levels. Like type 2 diabetes, prediabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin action.
Diabetes that begins during pregnancy and usually resolves after birth. Pregnancy diabetes occurs due to pregnancy hormones that cause insulin resistance. The pancreas, on the other hand, is unable to produce enough insulin to keep going.
The most common symptoms of diabetes include:
- Increased appetite and thirst
- Weight loss
- Changes in perspective
- Slightly heal wounds
- If you suspect that you have diabetes, we recommend that you consult your doctor.
- Left untreated, diabetes can lead to the following health problems:
- Foot Injuries
- Heart disease
- Disabled Addition
Is Essential Oil Helpful With Diabetes?
Many claims have been made about the benefits of essential oils in connection with diabetes, but are they true? Let’s look at science.
Numerous studies have proven the antidiabetic power of cinnamaldehyde — a major component found in Cinnamon Bark and Cassia essential oil. One such study concluded that cinnamaldehyde has the potential “to improve glucose and lipid homeostasis in diabetics” and, as a result, may be one of the most effective complementary therapies for diabetes.
The same study clarified the effects of cinnamaldehyde and collected that cinnamaldehyde diabetic studies showed significant improvements in many areas, including body weight, insulin sensitivity, blood glucose levels, diet and diet and more.
Scientists studied the effects of Clove oil on diabetes studies and found that Clove’s antioxidant activity could help control and prevent type 2 diabetes caused by oxidative stress.
The effects of Coriander Seed extract on insulin release were observed in patients with diabetes. Blood is extracted 1.5, 3 and 5 hours after treatment of Coriander seeds. Scientists note that administration of the extract significantly lowers glucose levels and increases insulin release. Note here, the extracts and essential oils are not the same but share the same properties.
In each of the above studies, essential oils or extracts were given orally – a method we do not recommend being careless about, especially when discussing hot oils like Cassia and Cinnamon Bark.
We suggest that you disperse these oils and inhale them, or contact your nearest aromatherapist for additional guidance that meets your individual needs.
Try adding the following combination to a diffuser or personal pocket inhaler:
- 8 drops of Cinnamon oil
- 5 drops of clove Bud
- 3 drops of coriander seeds
- 2 drops Melissa (also known as lemon balm)
