In brief: Diet/Exercise

Please talk to your physician or diabetic educator to develop a treatment plan and let them know you are wanting to look for non-medication treatments.
Having said that, the main thing that has caused patients of mine to get off of their diabetic meds is weight loss, exercise, and eating a low-sugar/carb healthy diet. I know that's not easy, but it can make the progression of the disease slow.
