More Diabetes Info on Herbs to Go Natural
Diabetes info is everywhere. We have to be cautious to make sure we do it the right way. Remember that not all information is good for everybody. No two people are like. Each one has its own level of tolerance. So use the diabetes info well and wisely.
Cayenne (capsicum)I don’t know if this is related to pepper but it is found to have substantial benefit in easing nerve pain linked to diabetes and diabetes neuropathy.
Celery This we know, don’t we? Beside being an important source of fiber, a laboratory study showed that the juice of this herb lowered total cholesterol and LDL levels in animals in a noteworthy manner.
Centaury This is used for poor gastric secretion, dyspepsia and also known to be a treatment for diabetes.
Cinnamon You will like this one and we use it every day in place of sugar in oatmeal. It can increase the insulin ability to metabolize glucose and has been used for centuries both as spice and as treatment for gastrointestinal disorders.
Cocoa We love this and didn’t know it was considered as a herb. Cocoa preparations are used for bladder, liver and kidney disorders. It is also used for diabetes and as an astringent for diarrhea. I don’t know about the last claim but for me what works instantly is an apple.
Couch grass Used for constipation, this herb is also considered a dietetic for diabetes. What a diabetes info!
Dandelion A mixture of dandelion leaves and root is used for hemorrhoids, liver and gallbladder disorders, gout, rheumatic complaints, eczema and other skin problems. This weed, oh I’m sorry I mean herb has also a constructive diuretic result on kidney and bladder problems, kidney stones and gravel formation. Wow! I have more respect for dandelions now which I am sorry to admit I ruthlessly removed from our lawns. I’ve got to learn how to make dandelion soup and when I do, I’ll share it with you, I promise. This is another diabetes info I can’t live without!
Divi-divi Diabetes is treated with the roasted seeds.
Eucalyptus Just like divi-divi, this is used as treatment for diabetes.
Evening Primrose Oil The evening primrose wildflower produces seeds containing oil that has lots of the essential fatty acid gamma-linoleum acid or GLA. Eleven years ago, a study published a report that GLA reversed neurological damage in diabetic patients with diabetic neuropathy.
Fenugreek Seeds from this herb have shown important diabetic effects in clinical and investigational studies. The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that two studies on fenugreek showed its positive effects on improved glucose tolerance in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Being a soluble dietary fiber, fenugreek can slow down the rate of glucose absorption from the digestive tract as reported in the journal, Diabetes. It is mentioned that this type of fiber works best with meals containing carbohydrates. The improvement of glucose tolerance and lower cholesterol levels result from the use of fenugreek seeds and/or skimmed fenugreek seed powder. Here’s another study to prove the veracity of this claim. The cholesterol and blood sugar levels of sixty Type 2 diabetes were measured by the Indian researchers. They asked the participants to make only one lifestyle change. And what is this change? Just for them to have a bowl of soup with about one ounce of powdered fenugreek before each meal. They measured the blood sugar and cholesterol levels of the participants and found out that both fell considerably.
Here we go again, it’s time to digest what’s been noted here and get ready for another lesson on herbs in a day or two. An important caution is excellent here. Don’t try these all at once. And for heaven’s sake, run this by your doctor first and read the disclaimer on the home page.
This is the way we do it. We pick one that we think may help. A common one like celery is good. Then we try that one and monitor the changes in our body. As soon as we feel a negative change, we stop it right away. After thirty days and we notice a positive change, then we try another one to test if our body will tolerate it before adding it to our herb repertoire. Did you find this diabetes info helpful?
