Diabetes and Herbs

Herbal Remedies for Diabetes

Historically, Diabetes and herbs have gone hand in hand. Before insulin was available to treat diabetes, herbs and plant medicine were the only medicinal aids available. Often this was in the form of herbal tea.

Traditional herbal medicine is still an effective means of treating diabetes. Some herbs are very effective and have been noted in Medical Journals and scientific investigations.

The herbs discussed here are the most common for treating diabetes and have a blood sugar lowering effect. Many of these herbs can be incorporated into your diet by a herbal tea or tonic.

Caution: Diabetes is a serious disease and should be treated by your medical practioner.

  • Onions and Garlic:

  • This is a tropical fruit that is commonly cultivated in Africa, South America and Asia. You intake this fruit in its green, unripened state. Bitter Melon has demonstrated its ability to lower blood sugar levels in Type I and Type II diabetes patience.
