I have been taking pure Ceylon Cinnamon for the last six weeks and I can see the results already. At last my Diabetes is under control. You must take the Pure Ceylon Cinnamon ONLY as the others have side effects that affect you over a long term. You can start on 6 capsules a day until you have some reduction in your levels then take 4 a day.
For diabetic people the ideal alternative might be a cinnamon based remedy.
Studies show that cinnamon lowers blood glucose levels in diabetes. It also enhances the effectiveness of insulin. It is often used in baked sweet breads (or other sweet or heavy foods) because it counterbalances the negative properties of such foods. That's why it might be a perfect medicinal spice for diabetes.
Cinnamon improves the blood circulation and warms the body. Incidentally, poor blood circulation and coldness are seen as one of the major causes of fibroids and cysts in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, one of the formulas used for fibroids is Cinnamon and Hoelen (Gui Zhi Fu Ling Wan). If you can get it, it would be the best. But if you cannot, just pour hot water over 1 tsp. cinnamon and drink the tea 2-3 times a day. You can also put water and cinnamon powder into a pot and boil it for 10 minutes. I found out that it has a stronger taste when drunk this way.
Also, make sure that the cinnamon you use is from Sri Lanka (Cinnamomum zeylanicum). The most popular commercially sold variety might be harmful to health when taken in high dosages (it contains toxins).
CINNAMON. S'posed to be an end to HBP and Diabetes.
