There are 26 million Americans who suffer from type 2 diabetes .

A recent study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine has shown that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), along with conventional medicine, has multiple benefits for type 2 diabetics, in contrast to those who just receive conventional medicine.

For example, an improved diet and regular exercise habits reduce blood sugar levels, enhance moods and imbibe the individual with a stronger sense of control in terms of their condition.

Director of the and Cardiovascular WellnessClinic, Ryan Bradley, ND, MPH, at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, stated that the news will be encouraging for those with the condition.

Study participants highlighted the benefits of attempting various approaches to pinpoint the best ways to lessen the effects of type 2 diabetes.

The study involved 40 type 2 diabetics, who received diet and exercise counselling as well as glucose monitoring from four naturopathic physicians.

Most participants received stress management care and dietary supplements, as well as standard diabetes care and prescription drugs from their doctors. Then the participants were compared with 329 patients who were just in receipt of conventional diabetes care.
