: Hi Rehana,
It is good to hear that you have found a natural remedy to beat your diabetes. I congratulate for your good willing to lower your blood sugar naturally. It is true that apple cider vinegar can help lower blood glucose. There are many studies determining this effect.
For example, the blood glucose of 11 type 2 diabetics having 2 tbs of apple cider at bedtime, were found to be lowered 4% to 6%.
In addition, cider vinegar could help diabetics losing weight as it increases the feeling of being full while eating.
Since ancient times, fenugreek, cinnamon and bitter gourd have been used for general health and diabetics in particular.
With regards to jamun, to my knowledge, it is referred to an Indian type of Black-berry. Besides being an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, it has been used in the Ayuverdic medicine in treating diabetes.
Particularly, its bark is used to beat the thirsty feeling of diabetics, while its powdered seeds are good to lower blood sugar.
This is true because, if powdered seeds are taken as a juice up to four times per day, it can enhance the action of insulin, especially true in type 2 diabetics or those with insulin resistance.
As I was not able to find any true resource regarding what wild melon can do to lower blood glucose, could you please provide more info?
We appreciate your help! All the best!
Cure for diabets type 2
There is a cure for type 2 diabetes. It's changing the habits that created the situation in the first place.
Eating right and exercising. Contrary to the popular opinion espoused by the medical community, a cure is not a magical pill that you take once and never have the
That doesn't even work for disease if you keep exposing yourself to pathogens.
The cure is simple, eat foods that are as close to natural (read unprocessed) as possible, stick with vegetables primarily until you get your glucose back to where it should be, then add fruits in moderation.
(Use natural aids like Apple Cider vinegar, chia seeds, spirulina, cloves, fenugreek, bitter melon, cinnamon to help get those numbers down).
Bread, crackers, chips, potatoes, pasta, candy and cakes are not necessary parts of a healthy diet, they are killers that should only be a part of the human eating experience on rare occasion.
As for exercise, build a little muscle, boost your metabolism with regular cardio. Move for an hour a day. It's easier than you think.
