Most of them talking about cinnamon and indigest, there is a natural way to solve this problem also reduce reading (atleast 20) oregano(ajwan) seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon bark all these boil in a water for 5-10 minutes. Let it warm, drink as herb tea. All these herb, you can find in indian grocery stores, health food stores.
(Ajwan) Oregano seeds, cumin—great for digestion (you can google)It produces heat not body tempareture, if you take too much, could cause diarrea, so you need somthing to compensate, which is fenugreek or milk or buttermilk or juicy fruits like watermelon
Fenugreek—-cools body, good for diabetic
It may work with most, and all natural,no chemical, no sugar, no fat

I take 2 cinnamon caps a day and I really believe it has helped get my numbers down close to where I want them. Still want to shave a few more points off, but can't complain about my numbers. Unfortunately,when I go to buy my cinnamon caps, the ones with chromium are always sold out.

I use cinnamon on yogurt and in coffee daily, but will look into cumin and the others … Like Jibber Jabber if I can do it more natural I am all for it.. my only problem is often the expense of the natural remedies, a lot of the herbs are expensive. Best of health. Heidi

If you decide to take cumin..and you have an ethnic arab or indian store nearby they sell it very can make tea from it..or just buy the tea bags..again the ethnic stores are generally cheaper..

I have been taking Cinnamon and chromium supplements since I was diagnosed..but my hubby introduced me to well as another herb (please dear god don't ask me the English name..I will try to grab him and ask him again today)…he is from Syria and swears everyone makes tea from mixing them when they have diabetes…well I googled and yes, they are very widely used in the Middle east..I did some research to make sure they wouldn't adversely effect me or my meds in any way..they came up as good…so I drink a couple cups of fresh tea everyday…will have to look up the Oregano and Fenugreek today..I am a very big believer in God's pharmacy…****** I SHOULD ADD…that cumin mixed with certain meds has been know to lower blood glucose too low…so be extra careful before you embark down the middle eastern/indian cure passageway..(grin)

So you take the Cinnamon in pill form? I am newly diagnosed (a month ago) and I have been sprinkling it on my food so far. Would a pill provide more benefit do you know?

I also sprinkle it on my food, when I am eating something cinnamon friendly..I really can NOT tell you which form works best..I mean it is actual cinnamon in a capsule that I am taking so I am assuming it is the same thing..But you know what they say about people that assume too much…I do know that the supplement I take does have the added chromium…

Thanks for replying. I just thought that maybe you had done some research into taking Cinnamon and maybe found something I didn't. Being new to this, I'm really looking to get a handle on this from the getgo and there is a lot of conflicting information out there to wade through. Thanks again!

Hi, If you do not know, the english name of your herb, still you can find in google dictionary, just type the herb name in english, you can also see the picture of it.
