Research Into Natural Herbs Leads To Lower A1c, 190-lb Weight Loss

I am a diabetic and was taking four insulin shots per day and still had problems with my sugar. I did two months of research on the Web because I had to find a way to get off the shots. I hate needles I was astonished at what I found on natural herbs!

My Hemoglobin A1c was a 10 percent and my doctor was really worried about me. After one month of taking the natural herbs that I discovered (I chose to do this experiment without telling my doctor), my hemoglobin A1c went down to a 6 percent!

When I went back to the doctor, she was in shock and wanted to know what I did. I didn’t tell her until a year later and 190 pounds lighter. I believe that these herbs can help any diabetic. I also changed my diet by eating multi-grain breads and drinking green tea, low-carb veggies and plenty of water. I didn’t even exercise!

I think the news needs to get out that there is hope for diabetics. Doctors don’t have the time to research like a housewife does. Now my doctor has companies coming in and leaving herbal samples and info for her to read. It’s nice to know that my experiment has piqued the curiosity of so many people that I have spoken to. Here is what I took:

  • Gymnema sylvestre
  • Fenugreek seed
  • Chromium picolinate
  • Full-spectrum cinnamon
  • Super Citrimax
  • Fat Burner

Thanks for allowing me to share my story. I still have 50-75 more
pounds to go to be at a more healthier weight that will prevent
diabetes complications. Thanks again.

Sincerely,
Lassie McClellan

Editor’s Note: Lassie is on to something when she says that a determined person can often track down more information on diabetes than a busy, often distracted doctor.
