4 Vacay Destinations to Kick Diabetes to the Curb

You're dreaming of a vacation, anyway.


Ever wonder where you can both indulge and reverse diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease, more or less, so changing the patterns of your lifestyle can basically reverse the disease.

Here are 4 places where you can kick back, relax, and say goodbye to your diabetes.

#1 Vilcabamba, Ecuador

The Valley of Longevity sits tucked away from the rest of Ecuador, only accessible by a day-long bus ride or a private half-day shuttle. It’s worth it, though. The natural water is full of minerals, and the air is the purest in all of South America. It is rumored that the people here live over a hundred years old, and most visitors find themselves trapped by its beauty. The valley is surrounded by endless mountains thanks to the Andes Mountain Range, and the weather is always just right.

Come here for a week or a month and feel yourself heal. The mineral water, fresh air, and endless hiking will surely get things flowing again.

#2 Phuket, Thailand

Thailand is a magical land, and I don’t care how absurd I sound in saying it. The tropical climate means that literally everything is buzzing with a vibrant energy and that the air is heavy like a comforting blanket. The fruit is abundant and bursting with nutrition, and the salt water is cleansing. Yoga and meditation are the pastimes here, making it a perfect safe haven to get yourself back on track. Plus, Thailand is super affordable, so you don’t have to break the bank to get here.

#3 Malpais, Costa Rica

Malpais is like a little oasis tucked at the corner of the peninsula that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. A dirt road runs down the middle, and health food restaurants dot either side. Surfing and yoga are two major activities, aside from watching the spectacular sunset each night. Fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant, the healing salt water permeates the air, and a tranquil vibe envelopes the entire town.

It truly is the perfect escape for reordering your life priorities and is one of the more affordable places in Costa Rica, too.

#4 Todos Santos, Mexico

If there’s one thing about Todos Santos, it’s that they know how to provide quality service. The breathtaking views and the incredible sunsets help you get your mind straight. The relaxing luxury retreat style services make it easy to focus on your health and well-being. Fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant, and virtually any kind of food is available at these world-renowned resorts. While this may be a pricier location for many, it certainly makes wellness an easy feat.
