May help diabetics

It is widely accepted that diet and exercise are beneficial in diabetes (see
WDDTY vol 3 no 7). But far less is generally known about the use of more
exotic foods or herbs to treat the condition. It's worth stressing that these
remedies may help a no.

Both onion and garlic are now known to have a very significant ability to
lower blood sugar and should be used liberally as part of the normal diet of
diabetes sufferers (Ind J Med Res, 1977; 65: 422-29; Quart J Crude Drug Res,
1979;17: 139-96).

Fenugreek (Methi) seeds have also been shown to have a similar effect (Eur J Clin
Nutr, 1988; 42(1):51-4; Eur J Clin Nutr, 1990; 44(4): 301-6).

The stems of prickly pears (of the Opuntia cactus), or nopal, eaten in
Mexico, have the reputation of helping diabetics. In an experimental double
blind study, a group of non-insulin patients took 500g of broiled nopal stems. After
three hours they experienced a average reduction in glucose of 17 per cent and
in insulin, 50 per cent, compared with those taking a placebo (Diabetes Care,
1988, 11:63-6).

Dandelion root, Jerusalem artichokes and burdock root all contain a substance
called inulin, which assists in blood sugar control (Am J Clin Nutr, 1990;
52:675-81) and in reducing hyperglycemia and fatigue after starchy meals (Ann
Intern Med, 1931; 5: 274-84).

In the Indian sub-continent the bark of sanderswood has long been
successfully used in the treatment of diabetes. A flavonoid named epicatechin
contained in the bark and an alcoholic extract of Pterocarpus marsupium have been proved able to regenerate functional cells of the pancreas (Lancet, 1981; 2: 759-60;
Lancet, 1982;2: 272).

In my own practice, I have very often found that Diacure capsules (a product
of France's Laboratoires Lehning) helps my diabetic patients reduce their
insulin requirements by 40 to 45 per cent after about two or three weeks (as
recorded by patients with their home glucose monitors). This powdered herbal
compound contains dandelion root, barberry, butternut, yarrow, whortleberry
(bilberry) leaves and red centaury with some natrium phosphoricum (Enquiries:
UK:

NutriCentre, London; Canada: Homeocan, Montreal; US: Enzymatic Therapy, Green
Bay, WI 54311).

As for herbal remedies, German herbalist Rudolf Fritz Weiss mentions a home
remedy for diabetes used widely as a tea in Europe. It is made in equal parts
of whortleberry leaves, bean pods, goat's rue herb, goat's rue seed and
peppermint leaves. The first four contain substances with insulin like action,
called glucokinins (R F Weiss. Herbal Medicine, 1988, A B Arcanum, Gothenburg).

In homeopathy, the seeds or mother tincture of the rose apple (jambul in the
US, and Syzygium jambolanum to homeopaths) is a reliable homeopathic remedy (W
Boericke, Pocket Manual of Homoeopathic Materia Medica, 9th ed, Boericke &
Runyon, 1927).

As far as nutritional management, one or more of the following can be of real
benefit in diabetes: chromium, quercetin, pyridoxine, carnitine, omega-6
fatty acids, ascorbic acid, vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, manganese, magnesium,
biotin, inositol and potassium. A full vitamin and mineral profile will
establish which supplements should be taken.

But the most important supplement of all is vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) .
There is mounting evidence that raised blood glucose levels produce more free
radicals. Vitamin E has been shown to measurably stop the production of free
radicals (Diabetes Care,1991;14( 1): 68-72). However, only doses of 600-1200mg
have this effect; lower doses are ineffective (Am J Clin Nutr, 1993; 58: 412-16).

Vitamin E also helps with circulation of diabetic patients (Diabetes, 1982;
31: 947-51; and 1984; 33: 239-43; Metabolism, 1992; 41(6): 613-21). By lowering
free radicals and protecting blood vessel walls, it can also prevent diabetic
complications, such as foot ulcers and neuropathy.
Vitamin E can also stabilize blood sugar. In a carefully controlled study,
900mg per day of vitamin E given for four months both lowered free radical
production and improved insulin action in non-insulin patients, compared with a
group of controls (Am J Clin Nutr, 1993; 57: 650-56).

Under no circumstance should anyone suddenly take him/herself off diabetic
drugs, especially insulin. Taking any supplement that will probably affect blood
sugar regulation can be potentially dangerous, particularly for any patient
needing insulin injections. Such supplements should be tried only under
professional direction. According to current informed opinion, an insulin
dependent patient will never be able to stop taking insulin altogether.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Look what can be done if you are determined and have the will to live.

An engineer (DeWayne McCulley) was able to overcome a diabetic coma, a blood sugar level of 1337, two blood clots, pneumonia, and four insulin shots a day. DeWayne used his engineering and biochemistry background to help repair his body and wean himself off the insulin. After three years, he is still drug-free with his blood glucose level in the normal range.

You might like to read the links below with information from actual cases about how Arnica/Cinnamon helped Diabetics:

Cinnamon alone helped diabetes.No need to use Arnica.

Murthy

I am copying a link to the Hpathy forum below where anyone interested will note that Murthy confirms in his post last March that it was I that first brought this information about Cinnamon and Arnica helping Diabetics to his attention. I did so in a post on the Hpathy forum. This was also confirmed by Dr Leela d'Souza a well known homeopath in India on the same thread.

I am bringing this matter to the attention of members to show how this same Murthy has changed in his characteristics today and shadows every post that I make to help members as I have done for the last 4 years on the ABC. The reason that he ascribes to his posts which are more like the ravings of a lunatic, are to warn members that all my prescriptions are dangerous when it is only too obvious that these same members still hold me in high regard and even today post their ailments directly to me as can be witnessed on today's posts.

I cannot understand the real reason for his hatred of my helping members whom I have helped for many months or even years, and I can only think that he has finally taken leave of his mind due perhaps to some reason that I cannot diagnose from Colombo where I live.

It will be observed that Murthy does not try to help anyone who posts his ailment. All he does today is to shadow the posts that the resident prescribers on the ABC including Kuldeep and me and a few others make and he then proceeds to vilify us in terms that seem to convey that he and his soulmate Nisha are the only chosen duo who are qualified to post a remedy for an ailment.

I feel that it time that this anomaly is stopped forthwith in the interest of members of this forum before Murthy is instrumental to closing it down.

I am also copying the statement that Murthy has made on the Hpathy forum after his signature on every post he has made which seems ironic as his present status on the ABC as the homeopathic constable seems to be the direct antithesis of his philosophy which he seems to have very conveniently left behind on the Hpathy forum

Hi everybody

Here is good news.

After reading on the net about Cinnamon, i suggested it for two patients of diabetes type 2, and both of them reported excellent results. Their blood sugar dropped from around 160 post lunch to around 120. Ofcourse, they are continuing their regular medication, but never got to less than 150, in the past few years.

They are taking two pieces of 1 inch length, and about 10 mm width, twice a day. The result is seen within 3 weeks.

I suggest to all the diabetics of type 2 to start on cinnamon, and post your results here. I haven't heard of any side effects at the dosage mentioned above. It can be taken as it is, chewed, or can be taken along with tea. You will love the aroma.

Murthy

I think Joe Dr Livera was the one who sent me this information that he has used it in many cases and it worked.

Yes Madam

After the matter is brought to our attention by Joe, I surfed the net extensively, and I am very much impressed by the reviews. All positive, and very encouraging.

I didn't advise to use Cinnamon alongwith Arnica as Joe did, as we will never know, which really worked. Now, it is clear that Cinnamon works despite Arnica.

I am encouraging more diabetic patients to try it out, and will be posting the results.

Murthy

yes. It is Joe who brought our attention to Cinnamon.

I am consistant in my stand then and now too.

I said there also, Cinnamon alone helps. No need for arnica.

Thanks Joe, for bringing this post out.

You are welcome.

You have not however commented on your change of your philosophy that I also copied in your posts on the Hpathy forum:

Dear Joe

I still subscribe to it.

I wish that everybody observes it, not only me.

I will not feel belittled if somebody intervenes in my presriptions,saying that they may be dangerous.

I will not feel angry, if somebody says, my prescriptions are more a placebo, than a medicine.

I will defend my prescription without getting angry.

I will understand that they have nothing personal against me, but, has the interest of patients only, in their hearts.

however, if people start name calling I will retaliate.

This is better.Keep rambling like this.

It won't harm others, as long you keep pasting photographs, without any medicinal advice.
