I know how much we all want away from this health condition; but reading reliable medical resources like the Merck Manual or PDR all conclude based on available medical evidence-based best practices thee is no cure. Controlling diabetes comes down to diet, exercise and (for some) medication. Many members here control Type 2 entirely by diet and exercise (I do). Being able to do so is my preference, but that is not possible for everyone and being able to do so doesn't make one better or more involved in their care, just biologically and biochemically able to do so.

I appreciate your post and understand the temptation for a "cure" that's marketed to groups of individuals like us. I agree with jayabee, it is almost always cinnamon anyway. Otherwise it is an ebook or slickly marketed pamphlet or reference card that does little other than champion the obvious and provide an income stream for the marketing company.

Taking as broad and supportive position that I can, I hope that if you do try the product or service that it works for you. I also hope that if it doesn't, that you actually get your money back. I must confess, I also hope that you consider not responding to alleged quick fixes for a complicated health condition, or series of health conditions, with one single product, substance or gadget.

All the best to you.

Yes I ran across an ADVERISEMENT which made that claim. If I remember correctly it was from an internet marketer of books known as Joe Barton.
He writes a lot of books about a lot of topics, mostly medical if I recall. He offers a guarantee of your money back if it doesn't work. But if one asks for one's money back it is rarely if ever honored.

I didn't watch the entire video persentation because Joe is pretty long winded, and I doubt that he'll tell anyway because he wants you to BUY the information (usually a book of some kind). I stongly suspect that the spice may be cinnamon. And if it is, I know it doesn't work for me, because I am taking cinnamon now without effect on my BG.

If you want to see discussions on cinnamon, go to the discussions tab on the left side of this page, click on it, and on the right side of the page which appears type cinnamon in the search box on that page. It has been much discussed over the years DC has been in existence.

I am also quite skeptical of those who promise a "cure" for T2. I always wonder what they mean by cure. Cure as in I no longer have to worry at all about my T2? Or "cure" in the sense of managing the disease. Often those folks who sell info leave the word undefined because they want to SELL you something, and they're not eager to burst your bubble by defining the term.

I did check this out a bit and cinnamon was a big part of the "cure" it also suggests cayene and a couple of others. I believe that someday they may find a cure but I do not think spices will do the trick. I sometimes crave sweets and if I eat one with cinnamon it will not spike my BG but I have a reaction to cinnamon that makes my mouth and throat feel raw and on fire.
