Of course, every diabetic relies on patent medicines, which compounds the problem. Metformin is a huge big-ticket diabetic drug that has serious side effects, including lactic acidosis, a lifethreatening condition caused by the buildup of lactic acid in the blood. Symptoms of lactic acid in the blood are feelings of extreme weakness or lethargy, unusual muscle pain, trouble breathing, stomach discomfort, dizziness, lightheadedness, and arrhythmia.
But what if we didnt have to rely on patent drugs to regulate glucose metabolism? Theres an all-natural, great-tasting treatment. Its well worth considering both for current diabetics and for those with a high risk of developing the disease. Its plain table cinnamon! Just a spoonful of this common spice can help stave off Type 2 diabetes.
This is not an instruction to get off of insulin and medical supervision. That may come later. But in fact cinnamon was shown to work better with insulin for those already diabetic. Cinnamon mimics insulin and in most instances can work alone without the presence of insulin.
For those not already diabetic, cinnamon may prevent Type 2 diabetes before it ever begins. If you have a mild case of diabetes, its quite possible that your blood sugar level will normalize simply by using cinnamon.
Dr. Richard Anderson noted that all species of cinnamon worked to help regulate glucose metabolism in his research. It isnt hard to tell if cinnamon is helpful with the availability of all the blood sugar measurement devices.
Boil about one teaspoonful of whole store bought cinnamon daily in water, then pour off the resulting watery solution for drinking, then discard the solid remainder.
