Alternative Therapies and Explanations
Question from Israel:
I am going to the USA. Can you recommend a natural product (food or medicine) for diabetes?
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.
