    Default Diabetes and Cinnamon

    I have been using Cinnamon to control Type II Diabetes for a while. My physician was quite skeptical, but willing to hear about my venture. He asked that I continue checking my blood sugar levels and come back in 3 months for a blood test in the lab. He found, to his amazement and mine, my blood sugar levels were down in a normal range and the cinnamon really is working for me. Please, can anyone explain why cinnamon is not recommended before drugs? Every morning I toast 2 pieces of whole wheat / raisin bread, butter it, sprinkle cinnamon on it, cover it with honey (a natural anti-bacterial) and what a wonderful treat!

    Thank you,

    Rick

    Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day significantly reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics, a new study has found. The effect, which can be produced even by soaking a cinnamon stick your tea, could also benefit millions of non-diabetics who have blood sugar problem but are unaware of it.
