QUESTION: TAKE 2 FRESH OAKRA CUT THEIR HEADS AND TAILS,PUT 3-4 CUTS AND DIP THEM IN A GLASS OF WATER AT NIGHT TIME.


DRINK THAT WATER 1/2 HOUR BEFORE BREAKFAST.IT WILL
CONTROL YOUR SUGAR LEVEL.


ANSWER: Hi ,

It is good for you that you have found Okra. This herb is really effective in patients with diabetes, because it can reduce the amount of glucose absorbed by the food through your gastrointestinal tract. As a consequence, it will reduce the amount of glucose in your blood, keeping it under control.


  • Other important thing is that you are preparing okra in the right way. The only thing, which you have to avoid, is to fry them, because the heat destroys the molecule of the active substance. USDA National Nutrient data base for Okra:
    okra water nutrient vitamin minerals

  • Another point I want to emphasize is to combine the use of Okra with a healthy diabetic diet and keeping exercised.


    Running for about an hour a day, will help you to burn the excessive amount of glucose in your blood.

    In addition, the diet, along with the consumption of Okra, will minimize the amount of glucose acquired per day and your body will not suffer from elevated blood glucose level again.

    Keep in mind that diabetes is a progressive disease and it is possible to start using drugs at some point, due to irreversible changes in your organism.

    Because of this, I will advise you to check your blood glucose level regularly and to refer to your doctor, if severe changes in your results are observed.

  • Besides the Okra, there are herbs, which you can start using, including Gymnema Sylvestre, Cinnamon and Bitter Melon. These herbs, along with Okra will provide you better control of your blood glucose level.

    The other thing is that they are at the form of capsules, so it would be easier for you to take them.

    Hope it helped!

    Temperature of water
    by: Osei k

    What should the temperature of the water be for soaking? Do I use cold, warm or hot water? Thanks


    Hi Osei K,

    You should use cold water, but not icy, neither warm or hot to keep the nutrients of okra untouched.

    If it is hot at the place you are living, then, should place the water at a cool place or can use the down part of the refrigerator to keep it for 24 hours.

    If it is cold at the place you are living, can leave it at room temperature.

    Hope it helped!

    The Okra Water
    by: bigdog

    QUESTION: Do I understand this correctly?

    To make the water you first follow the directions and the following morning you remove the okra and squeeze them into a clean glass and add fresh water and then drink that? Is this correct?

    I was told to drink the water that you soak the okra in after removing it the following morning.

    Which of these methods is correct?

    Thank you so much.

    Bigdog


    ANSWER: Hi Bigdog,

    Both methods are the same thing. In other words, after soaking okra overnight in the water, you can use the same water and squeeze the okra and mix up with new fresh water.

    Some of my patients find it difficult to take that mucilaginous drink, and they mix with fresh water.

    You can have the same water or the fresh one after squeezing okra.

    Be healthy!

    There is no problem in eating okra either raw or cooked. So, it's up to you on this.

    by: Anonymous

    QUERY: Hi doctor,

    My mom is getting insulin shots, will okra work while receiving insulin shots? pls give give your advice ty


    RESPONSE: Hi,

    Thank you for your query.

    Okra is a good solution for all patients with either type of diabetes: type 2 or type 1 diabetes (whether on insulin or not).

    The effect of okra water is on blood sugar levels, and not on medications she is using.

    Hope it will help your mother normalizing her blood sugar levels too!

    okra/diabetes
    by: Sherri

    QUERY: Hi,

    I have read several ways to prep this okra and water for diabetes...so is it supposed to be covered with something as it soakes over night?

    ...I have had diabetes for 26 yrs and will this remedy help with my diabetes?

    RESPONSE: Hi,

    Thank you for your query.

    This is my way of preparing okra water based on folk advised and used with high efficacy.

    It is supposed to put okra inside a glass of water and then add water until it is fully covered.

    I usually recommend cover this mixture in order to:
    - avoid contact with air
    - avoid contamination

    It has been used with efficacy for years, and I wish from deep of my heart that it will work for you too.

    Okra water won't do miracle, The best results will be seen if you:
    - drink okra water on daily basis
    - follow healthy changes in your diet/lifestyle regimen
    - continue medications as prescribed.

    I advise to monitor your blood sugar as it will be reduced and you should be adjusting the dose of your medications.

    All the best!

    by: Anonymous

    QUESTION: Hi,

    This is for my Dad. But he is a long distance truck driver. How long would it keep. he likes taking bottled water on trips. So I could stick it in a couple of bottles before he leaves on a trip.


    ANSWER: Hi back,

    Thank you for taking care of your father.

    If okra water will be kept fresh and cool place, away from light, he can use the water during his trip.

    Until he will be back and you'll prepare another bottles for the next trip.

    About times of using okra?
    by: dan

    QUESTION: How many times i've to use it? The okra meaning if soaked to night i've to soak new one for next day?

    ANSWER: Hi Dan,

    Thank you for your query.

    When you soak 2 or 3 pieces of okra in a glass of water, you should be use that water in the next morning at once.

    However, If you prepare more okra water, then, you can use it for the next days. But, you need to refrigerate.

    So, if you prepare for one week, you should take:
    - 7 glasses of water (1 glass for each week day)
    - and 21 medium sized pieces of okra

    Hope it was of help!

    okra with my medication
    by: Dusek.Alexandra

    i was reading on okra i do myself drink it every morning because im trying to control my blood sugar and im on a medication called JANUMET, which is of course a combination of Metformin and another drug, does the okra cancel out the effects of Metformin as ive read elsewhere?
    i read: 'If you’re taking metformin and you consume too much okra, you could possibly see your blood sugar levels creep up instead of down.' on this website listed below.
    i dont want to drink it every morning if the effects are like this can you help me understand.
