HEALTH: High & low blood sugar

A doctor friend recently came for a visit and told me about a diabetic patient who came in looking great and said she was off all her medicines.

She is a new patient, so my friend did all the usual check-ups, blood tests, etc. and found everything normal -- whereas the info in the patient's file clearly showed she was a full-blown diabetic.

The patient explained that she got fed up with taking all her medications, so she stopped cold turkey and instead started taking 1 tsp of cinnamon powder in hot water twice a day, morning and afternoon. That's it!

I then passed on the remedy to a friend with migraines and a history of high/low blood sugar and insulin-related exhaustion (hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia).

After 3 days of the remedy, she was feeling great, not even a hint of a headache although she is under enough stress at work that normally she would get a migraine by the weekend (up at 2 am, leaving home by 3.30 am, working a 10-hour shift with 13 employees to manage, driving long distances to a variety of locations in dazzling sunshine/heat).

I'll add an update on this as she tries the remedy longer. Right now, after 50+ years of migraines, she is feeling ecstatic! Update: Two weeks without a migraine (she's been having them once a week or more).

Cinnamon is great for constipation and diarrhoea, also.
Diarrhoea: 2 tsp in hot water. Take it for a few days, even though you'll probably find the diarrhoea stops on the very first day.
Constipation: Take cinnamon daily if you tend to be constipated -- 1/2 tsp in hot water, plus sprinkle it on foods or mix into smoothies. As an acute constipation remedy, try 1/2 tsp in hot water, drink plenty of warm water first thing in the morning, and cut back on how much you eat (keep drinking warm water throughout the day) until your bowels have normalized.
