Ok the cinnamon pills did not work for me. But they did for a friend. I am a homepathic person. I love herbalism, chriopractors and Ti chi and Reiki and QuiHong. But I am also a realist. Not everything will work for every one. I also am very cautious of what is in the foods I eat. I dont eat meals in a box. In fact the only box I have is my Chicken stock. I make 98% of my food from scratch. I do eat pumpkin out of a can. But I am also leary of some herbs. Information and Information and Information and more times than not what people thing about what they have learned. Educate yourself. And if it sounds to good to be true . It usually is.

Hi Robin052,
I'm also learning about "Natural Cures" and I hope the following information will help you. I posted it in another discussion.

I'm especially interested in things pertaining to naturopathic medicine, also known as naturopathy, which is a complementary and alternative medicine that emphasizes the ability of the body to heal and maintain itself, which practitioners believe is innate. Naturopathic practice may include different modalities such as abstinence, acupuncture , colonic irrigation, counseling , chiropractic , diet , exercise , herbalism, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, environmental medicine, manual therapy, orthomolecular medicine and relaxation. Practitioners emphasize a holistic approach to patient care, and may recommend patients use conventional medicine alongside their treatments.

In case you don't know, "naturopathic medicine" and "standard medicine" can and often do, overlap forming a "mixture." Naturopathic practitioners prefer not to use invasive surgery, or most synthetic drugs, preferring natural remedies, for instance relatively unprocessed or whole medications, such as herbs and foods.

Graduates of a naturopathic medical school in North America are trained to use diagnostic tests such as imaging and blood tests before deciding upon the full course of treatment. If the patient does not respond to these treatments, they are often referred to physicians who utilize standard medical care to treat the disease or condition. In some states, naturopathic doctors who hold an ND are licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medicines and perform minor surgeries.

I'm following the recommendations in 2 books listed in my order of importance:

1. "The 30 Day Diabetes Cure" by Dr. Stefan Ripich ND, CNP. He presents lifestyle changes for 30 days, with each day's lifetime changes building on the preceding day's lifetime changes. So at the end of the 30 days, IF you incorporate all his recommendations EVERY DAY you have the strong possibility of reversing Type 2 diabetes and getting off all medications. I was diagnosed as "quickly heading toward diabetes" by my "standard medicine" Dr. but now after following Dr. Ripich's plan, my tests show that I'm completely normal. (That's my short version)

His website: Don't let his business & finance guru with the "show name", Jim Healthy, scare you off. Dr. Ripich is for real but I have my doubts about this "Healthy" guy. I paid $57 for this large, very easy to read, informative & lifestyle changing book & consider it $$ well spent. I found it at & but it was much cheaper at Dr. Ripich's site.

2. "Stop Prediabetes Now" by Jack Challem. He goes into all-natural solutions for preventing or reversing prediabetes using his suggested lifestyle changes. I found the used book at for $4 including shipping.

AND I have absolutely no financial interest in the above mentioned books.

Thanks for your input Tony. I believe in natural stuff as well. I used to be a massage therapist. I'm also Reiki Master and certified hypnotherapist. So since 2002 I've spent time with people who were vegans, vegetarians, and natural ways to help their health. I didn't mean to get anybody's feathers ruffled and if I can I will be deleting this discussion.

Please do not delete this discussion. There are a few people here, not many, but just a few who are very caustic, sarcastic and rude in their postings. You just met one who is famous for tactless replies BUT please don't let her discourage you. There are many of us who are very interested in "natural" cures and are having success with them, including me.

Jayabee52 (James) is a really nice & intelligent guy and I always find his postings very helpful. I appreciated his info. on Barton. He just helped me and I hope he helped you.

On the other hand, the reply from that sarcastic person should be taken with a grain of salt. She has "ruffled feathers" & hurt people before, many times. Just remember the source of that rude sarcasm and ignore future postings by her. It has been documented that some have been healed of diabetes the "natural" way and she is in error with her statement that there is "no cure." All of our bodies and minds are different and what works for some, may not work for others. I personally have seen and have experienced "miracle" healings that tend to go against traditional medicine that involves ingesting drugs that have caused terrible "side effects" with some.

This discussion might help many so please leave it for them. Again, please don't let this discourage you from future postings & please don't drop out of this wonderful group. You can be a tremendous asset to this group with your honest input. Actually I believe that you already are a great asset by starting this discussion.

Hang in there my friend…Tony5657 in New Braunfels, TX

My feathers are not ruffled, and I really do not think you need to delete this discussion. In fact it might serve to get the facts out about certain internet publishers and their tricks. They do scam many unsuspecting people and give them information they can get other places without cost.

Well I guess I got told. I know there is NO CURE but I do believe cinnamon helps. I take capsule form every day and my numbers went down. I also take Turmeric for arthritis. That was told to me by my pain doctor for the arthritis in my bulging discs. It only feels a little better, but a little is better than nothing. I'm sorry that I ruffled your feathers. That wasn't my intent. I will heed.

moon74 2013-02-12 10:40:57 -0600 Report

I love Tumeric for the arthritis. If your numbers went down, keep taking it. I didnt see this post when I posted.

jayabee52 2013-02-10 23:25:45 -0600 Report

well Robin, my feathers weren't ruffled by you! I just wanted to warn you off from spending your money on a bogus "cure" claim.

Some of what Barton publishes may be true, but MOST of what he would send you would be stuff you could learn on DC for FREE!

Plus the "wierd spice" does not work on every PWD (person with diabetes. Cinnamon does not work for me! I have tried for quite some time to get it to work. I have tried cinnamon and chromium pills, I have tried the regular cinnamon you buy in grocery stores in various doses, I have even sent away to get "true" cinnamon (sweet ceylon) zylonicum in various dosages. Effect for me was zip, nada, none! So, my ire was aimed at Joe and his people who prey on other PWDs eager for a cure, and then when they try to collect on the money back gurarantee, get stiffed! That is what rases my ire!

Robin, I got a 16 room ocean front mansion for sale in Iowa. This group has been around for several years selling so called "cures" or "reverse your disease" type information.

These kinds of salesmen/companies prey on gullible people. There is no cure for diabetes and even if you get off medicine you still have to watch what you eat. I never open those kinds of emails and I get them in my spam box all the time.

You have to research the source of this information. I found the same information James found. As he said stay away from this man and others like him.

jayabee52 2013-02-10 15:50:44 -0600 Report

There is SOOOO much wrong with this I have trouble knowing where to start!

First of all the video uses the "C"-word REPEATEDLY when referring to diabetes.

Second, this is from Joe Barton publishing company. A google search of Joe Barton publishing brought up this link here ~ and also this one here ~ (please also read not only the blog, but ALSO the responses to the article. Joe's company not only puts out advertisements aimed at diabetes, but for also SEVERAL other diseases and conditions. In the responses there are complaints that once purchased and discovered what was in the reports, they wanted their money back, which according to the posters was not forthcoming. I myself had investigated Joe myself and had seen that charge made before)

MY assessment? SAY FAR AWAY FROM JOE BARTON PUBLISHING! If you don't do not say I didn't warn y'all!
