Alternative Therapies and Explanations

Question from Israel:

I am going to the USA. Can you recommend a natural product (food or medicine) for diabetes?

Answer:

It is not my opinion that diabetes can be primarily treated with products from the health food store. You need to discuss sound medical therapeutics with your physician.

[Editor’s comment: There have been some small studies that have suggested that some herbals might have some effect on decreasing blood sugar, but I’d also suggest you read Herbal remedies: There’s no magic from the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research.
