There is a great hype about it... and costing at minimum 30 a month, I wonder if it is worth money like 1dollar a-day, next to all other supps diabetics are supposed to afford?  

Any Ideas on that?

What should a diabetic expect to pay for care?  or does one have no options but take Metformin? Which is paid for by insurance?  

Are there real options, or just barking up a tree with wishful thinking?




Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Metformin has some epigenetic benefits. Notably with mTOR.

What does your SWAMI say about cinnamon? It's good for Gatherers but bad for O nonnies. My SWAMI says it's a black dot. I'll consume it occasionally in foods, but I won't use it as a "medicinal spice" because I don't think a black dot is really "healing" for me.

If I had cinnamon as a diamond, I wouldn't  buy it in pills. I would buy it in bulk (such as at Costco from the spices section) and use it liberally in foods or beverages. Before I knew I was a nonnie, I used about a teaspoon in a cup of hot cocoa each day.

There is a difference between the cinnamon you get at store and "real cinnamon"

http://thymewisper.com/index.php/medicinal-foods/98-true-cinnamon

Here is a simple article about the two different types.

again I suggest checking out Gymnema sylvestre.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Amla Versus Diabetes

“For a dollar a month, Indian gooseberry (amla) powder may work as well as a leading diabetes drug without the side effects”

http://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-diabetes/

Also, I found http://www.vitacost.com/Paradise-Herbs-Activin-Grape-Seed-Extract/ in the health food store which contains Amla 120 mg.

Amla is a fruit that is in abundance in my country. Most are grown in the mountains or in the woods  naturally.  The fruit is only produced once a year in the winter. The people who live in the mountains  eat them when they catch cold. It is medicine from the Angels.

I miss that fruit a lot and never thought I would be able to find it in the US, until Chole posted that link.  So, thank you so much for sharing!

Ahh...the other name for it is Gooseberry, it is my superfoods in my Swami.  

Best wishes,

On my SWAMI (which decided I would do best on a hybrid of the GTD and BTD), it says cinnamon is neutral for me.  In the GTD book, it is a superfood for my Gatherer type, but on the BTD, it is an avoid for my O non-secretor self, so SWAMI split the diff.  I personally feel like cinnamon is beneficial to me, not that I use it very often.  When I do use it, though, I tend to use a TON of it, as there is no such thing as too much cinnamon, far as I'm concerned.

It is good for your blood sugar stabilization, Goldie, so what I'd do is forget about getting the expensive pills, and just get a high-quality, organic cinnamon and add it to foods.  Great stuff.  Spices, in general, are very powerful things and very healing.

You are so cute and make me smile after I read your post.

Wanthanee is another word for the way we greet each other politely in Thailand.  It is done with a slight bow with hands together.  You may have heard of this greeting by it’s more popular name of “Wei”.

Also, we do like this when we say thank you or say good bye with somebody.

  Here is an example picture of Wei or Wanthanee:

So, nice I'll remember that every time I see you name, I'll always think of that sweet young lady and the friendly greeting of Thailand.
