One of the best natural supplements to help control type 2 diabetes is Costus Pictus (you can read about it on Google). The leaves of the plant have the ability to help control and normalize blood sugar levels. Research has shown that the plant extract also contains the same properties and can be consumed in a powdered form as well. There are numerous growers of the plant in India, however according to my knowledge, the only people that have a certified product with a food licence to sell the powder are a farm based in Tamil Nadu. The contact person is a gentleman by the name of Manu and he can be contacted @9881976661

Shaheen,

PCOS is a disease in which ovaries are not able to produce eggs, which causes menstruation obstruction. It is also linked with insulin levels, high levels of insulin leads to PCOS as it encourages the rise in levels of testosterone in women.

But there is no link of Insulin Plant with PCOS. For PCOS the best remedy is Manjakani ( Quercus Infectoria ) and Shatavari ( Asparagua Racemosus ). Buy tinctures of both the herbs. Take 10 drops of each in half a glass of water. Take Shatavari in the morning and Manjakani in the evening.
These herbs help to maintains the monthly ovulation which automatically treats the PCOs

For other remedies or more information, you can visit our PCOS page in disease section. Please let us know the results after 1 month.

Neha dear.

I do not know why do you want to use this herb to reduce weight. There are a number of things you can do to reduce herbs. Insullin Plant ? I don't think so, it has got anything to do with over weight.
For reducing weight, drink green tea daily, early morning.
Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily. Eating 250 gm of Papaya daily for dinner will also help to reduce weight.

Have you heard of a fruit called Avocado. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, reduces the urge to eat and will help to shed off extra calories, that too without any side effect. Take care of your diet, do not go for dieting at all. Regular exercise is a must to keep your body in shape.

Goodbye.

Dear Navya, You can try some simple home remedies for Skin pigmentation. Take a potato cut it in a slice, put a drop of water on it. Rub it on the affected area. Leave for 15-20 minutes and then rinse. One more thing, you can use is Aloe Vera gel. Apply fresh Aloe Vera gel on the affected area. Wash it off after 20 Minutes. One more important thing is to apply sunscreen lotion when ever you go into direct sun light. Sun light worsens the condition, so you have to avoid it as much as you can. With Regards

Dear Josue, Yes, Insulin Plant does give relief from symptoms of Diabetes. But it is an interim relief. To get an aid for a long time, it is suggested that you take Gudmar. It is super effective Herb in curing Diabetes. Be careful, if you take it with other medicines. Since it is known to drastically drop the sugar levels, so you might need to reduce your dosage of pharma drugs. You need to keep a check on your sugar level. Buy Gymnema Sylvestre ( Gudmar) tincture from a homeopathic store. Start by taking 5 drops in a glass of water, once a day. Keep a check on the sugar levels. Observe, if you feel better, dosage of tincture can be increased and dosage of other medication can be decreased. Try this for a month, by adjusting the dosage level. Please check Diabetes in the disease section of this website. For any doubts, write back to us.

Dear R. R. Kamble Asthma is a disease of Respiratory System. It is a recurring disease.
But, do not worry, it can be controlled. Chew 2 Insulin Leaves daily in the morning, do this for 30 days, it will provide relief from Asthmatic attacks. Garlic is a superb Herb in controlling it. The Herb has anti-asthmatic properties, which provide great relief.
Take 3 or 4 Garlic cloves . Put it in hot water. Steep for 10 minutes. Let it cool and then drink. Follow this for 20 days.
Bitter Gourd-- Take out the juice of Bitter Gourd. Add paste of Basil and honey to it. Stir well. It will cure asthmatic attacks. Fig is a fruit very effective in controlling Asthma. Soak some dried figs in water, overnight. Eat them in the morning on an empty stomach. Also, drink the fig water, in which the figs were soaked.

You may take this drink for 15 days. Then you can stop and try with another super effective Herb called Gudmar. It indeed is very famous Herb here on this website and all over the internet and research studies. give her 10 drops of this Herb daily, before every major meal. Monitor the sugar levels. If they drop, the dosage can be reduced to 7,5 or even 3. Give her bitter gourd juice daily on an empty stomach. When the sugar level comes under control, then she may reduce the dosage of insulin levels. Oh yes, and the homeopathic name of Gudmar is Gymnema Sylvestre. All the very best.

Dear S. narain For back pain and fatigue, Take Guggul capsules. known as mahayograj guggal. Or take Ashwagandha capsules, one capsule on alternate days. try this for 15 days first. To reduce weight, drink green tea, everyday. Take 2 to 3 cups in a day.
Avocado fruit is a great fruit that burns extra fat. Eat 2 to 3 avocadoes in a week. other herbs are : fennel, onion seed oil with honey can be taken every morning and evening.
Take a teaspoon of kalaunji oil ( onion seed ). Add 2 teaspoon of honey to it. Stir well and eat it. Do it in the evening also, before going to bed.

Since you can not find it's tincture from homeopathic shop. You must know that it's Homeopathic name is Gymnema Sylvestre. This can be bought from any homeopathic shop. If, even then you do not find it, you can always order it over the internet. It is readily available. All the best buddy!!

I don't think so that Insulin Plant has got to do anything with Breast Cyst. Why don't you try Fagonia Tea ( Dhamsa ). You can search this herb and it is one of the best remedy for Breast Cancer. You can try this for 1 month and get your test done.

You should visit the herb Ginkgo Biloba. Because, this is your cure. A super effective herb for you it is. take one capsule ( 60 mg ) everyday for a month. But, before that check the herb and read the "Side effects" section of the herb, if you suffer from any of the symptoms given there, do not take it. Check the Ginkgo Biloba Page first.

Insulin Plant does give relief from symptoms of Diabetes. But it is an interim relief. To get an aid for a long time, it is suggested that you take Gudmar. There is only one herb by the name Insulin Plant
.It is super effective Herb in curing Diabetes. Be careful, if you take it with other medicines. Since it is known to drastically drop the sugar levels, so you might need to reduce your dosage of pharma drugs. You need to keep a check on your sugar level. Buy Gymnema Sylvestre ( Gudmar) tincture from a homeopathic store. Start by taking 5 drops in a glass of water, once a day. Keep a check on the sugar levels. Observe, if you feel better, dosage of tincture can be increased and dosage of other medication can be decreased. Try this for a month, by adjusting the dosage level. Please check Diabetes in the disease section of this website. For any doubts, write back to us. NO, a non diabetic person must not take Gudmar or Insulin Plant.

Or drink Horse gram soup everyday for 15 days. Apple Cider vinegar is another cure for you. Consult your health care provider before taking any herb.

Insulin Plant is good for diabetic people. But, I do not think it should be taken when you already are taking so much allopathic drugs.
The dosage of the drugs need to be reduced in order to take the plant. Despite of taking these many drugs, your sugar level is not under control.

You need to closely monitor your sugar levels. If you think that the reading is too low , then yu can decrease the intake of your allopathic drug and adjust the amount of homeopathic tincture accordingly. This has shown great results in lowering the sugar levels. Please share your feedback after 20 days.

Hi.

My friend is 60 years and struggling with diabetic neuropathy. He gets pain due to damage on nerve endings.
I can see in the comments that you most often suggest other herbs for treating diabetic conditions.
He is currently taking some homeopathic remedies for a while, but doesn't seem to do much, except being very costly. But who knows, he might get worse if he stop taking it.
I make cannabis butter, and gently massage to relieve his pain.

I just got back from Indonesia and took with me I bag of dried insulin leaves.

What do you think? I really appreciate your knowledge and hope you can suggest something..

Also, is it likely that this condition is not reverseable, and that we should focus on managing instead of curing?

Insulin Plant is very effective to cure Diabetes, if it suits your, then you may continue to take it for a month. For Fatty Liver, it is suggested that you take Half teaspoon of Kutki Powder every day after breakfast with a glass of water.
This herb can be taken for one week.
Do not increase the dosage on your own.
Also, we advise you to start with Milk Thistle capsule, one everyday for a month. Evion is vitamin E capsules, you may continue to take them. And Esomac 400 is primarily used to cure Peptic Ulcers. So, you must avoid foods that are acidic in nature.

One of the best natural supplements to help control type 2 diabetes is Costus Pictus (you can read about it on Google). The leaves of the plant have the ability to help control and normalize blood sugar levels. Research has shown that the plant extract also contains the same properties and can be consumed in a powdered form as well. There are numerous growers of the plant in India, however according to my knowledge, the only people that have a certified product with a food licence to sell the powder are a farm based in Tamil Nadu. The contact person is a gentleman by the name of Manu and he can be contacted @9881976661

Yes, it can be. But you need to be very cautious while taking it. Keep a regular check on your sugar readings. If you see, the readings are normal, then you can decrease your dosage of allopathic drugs. You will have to adjust the dosage as per the readings. Else, the sugar level may fall beyond the normal. So, that is why we advise everyone to monitor the sugar level, if they take a antidiabetic herb with additional allopathic drugs.

Ruchita. You may take Berberis Vulgaris tincture, 5 drops in a glass of water, daily. Observe the sugar readings and adjust the dosage accordingly. There are other herbs too that have shown positive effects in reducing sugar levels, these are--
Gudmar, Pata De Vaca ( Cat's Claw ) Tea. One cup every day for a month.
You can only take the herbs in case you are not breastfeeding your baby. All the best.

Yes, You may take Insulin Plant decoction for a month. one cup, daily
Keep a check on your sugar levels. Also, I believe you already are taking Metformin tablets to control the sugar levels. Just adjust the dosage of the herb according to the reading. If you feel the sugar level is dropping too fast, then you may skip the medicine or decrease the dosage .

Although Insulin Plant is used to cure Diabetes, but if you take it for a prolonged period, it may pose a threat to Kidneys. For Kidney Disorders, give her Land Caltrops capsules, one daily for a month. Also, try Varuna Capsules.

For Liver, it is suggested that you take Half teaspoon of Kutki Powder every day after breakfast with a glass of water. Insulin Plant is a beneficial herb for Liver, and Kidneys, you may take it. Your husband may also try Galega Officinalis. This is one of the best herbs for curing Diabetes.

Insulin Plant and Berberis Vulgaris might help her. But, since she is already taking Metformin and Insulin, she needs to keep a note of her sugar readings while taking the herbs and then adjust the dosage accordingly.

You can try Metformin tablets 200 mg, every day. Also, take Gudmar. It is an excellent remedy for controlling diabetes. Read about Diabetes in the disease section of this website. And see the reviews by the users and the remedies given on Diabetes Page.

No. instead of taking BGR capsules. it is suggested that you take Galega Officinalis mother tincture, 5 drops added to half a glass of water, every day for 15 days. Monitor the sugar readings and then adjust the dosage of the remedy accordingly. It is suggested that you go for a regular walk, and buy an acupressure kit or a device for your feet.

Hi,
All of my family members are having type 2 diabetes, but luckily I'm not having it yet.
But I know I have a risk of having it in the future.
Will it reduce the risk of getting diabetes, if i consume insulin plant leaves without having diabetes or will it weaken the insulin generation in my body and increase the risk of diabetes?
I recently started taking about 10 leaves as a salad once in every day. Is it too much?

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate your service :)
