Anti-Diabetes

For Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
Natto roots, Momordica balsamina, Caju bark & Artemisia Afra Tincture

Anti-Diabetes a blend of African herbs traditionally used to assist in:

  


There is compelling and credible ethno-botanical and anecdotal data to back up these claims.  


Added benefits:


1) Lessens debilitating end organ damage (anecdotal data)
2) Beneficial to the liver, bile, pancreas and digestive system (
Momordica balsamina, ethno botanical & anecdotal data)
3)
Artemisia Afra has positive cardiovascular effects and antioxidant properties (ethno botanical data)
4) Increased energy and stamina (
Momordica balsamina, ethno botanical & anecdotal data)
5) Is rich in phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and amino acids (ethno botanical data)

The phenomenal efficacy and results of this traditional herbal remedy demands a re-evaluation of long-held beliefs on diabetes. Anti-Diabetes has a success rate of over 90% in lowering blood sugar levels in type 1, type 2 and insulin resistant diabetes patients. Its beneficial results are generally felt within the first week with the reliance on insulin and on drugs being dramatically reduced and often ended. Patient data backed by tests, shows a remarkable reversal of diabetes type 1 and type 2 with some diabetic sufferers reporting normal blood sugar levels even four years after the treatment. Anti-Diabetes has also been used with success for insulin resistant diabetes.

Natto roots, nicknamed by patients as “sugar sticks”, are the principal ingredient of this tincture. The roots are found in Africa and form an integral part of African herbal medicine. Its positive results on non-insulin dependent patients are generally felt within weeks. Anecdotal data supports the properties of Natto roots for non-insulin and insulin dependent patients. Like most African herbal medicines, the number of traditional doctors prescribing these roots can best measure its effectiveness.

In recent years,
Momordica sp. has experienced a resurgence in research for hypoglycaemic activity. A number of patents have been submitted on actives and processes of Momordica sp. for insulin-type properties. The fruit has at least three different groups of constituents reported to have hypoglycaemic (blood-sugar lowering) action of potential benefit in diabetes mellitus. These include a mixture of steroidal saponins known as charantin, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids. It is still unclear which of these is most effective, or if all three work together. Multiple controlled clinical studies have confirmed the benefit of bitter melon for patients with diabetes. Ethno-botanical data also supports the use of Momordica sp. in the treatment for diabetes. From as early as the 1840’s, the Portuguese and other communities in East Africa were using this herb as a supplement for diabetes.

The use of
Artemisia Afra for diabetes has been recorded in early botanical and medicinal books. Its use in southern Africa is extensive. It is recorded that the early settlers used this herb to control diabetes, mainly in the Cape Province.

Caju is used by South American and East Africans alike and is rreported to have hypoglycaemic properties. Although the ethno-botanical data is imprecise, there is a strong following of this herb in the treatment of diabetes and its associated symptoms in Africa, South America and India. Two studies (one in mice and the other in rats) in 1989 and 1998 document the protective quality of a leaf extract against lab-induced diabetes, although the extract did not act as hypoglycaemic, it did stabilize blood glucose levels near pre-test levels.

Anti-Diabetes was formulated not to replace medications but to help the liver and pancreas function normally. For reasons not yet clear, Anti-Diabetes rapidly drops the reliance on pharmaceutical drugs on type 1 diabetics and it seems to make the pancreas either manufacture or release the required insulin on type 2 diabetics. Some type 1 diabetics have had their sugar level between 5 and 6 since 1995 after being on a course of Anti-Diabetes. Consistent anecdotal data has shown that the damage caused to the vision, nerves and kidneys is minimised and often reversed with the use of Anti-Diabetes.

What kind of diabetes do you have?
People can get diabetes at any age. There are three main kinds:


Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is usually first diagnosed in children, teenagers, or young adults. In this form of diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas no longer make insulin because the body's immune system has attacked and destroyed them. Treatment for type 1 diabetes includes taking insulin shots or using an insulin pump, making wise food choices, exercising regularly, taking aspirin daily (for some), and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol.

Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes, is the most common form of diabetes. People can develop type 2 diabetes at any age-even during childhood. This form of diabetes usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which fat, muscle, and liver cells do not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin. In time, however, it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. Being overweight and inactive increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. Treatment includes using diabetes medicines, making wise food choices, exercising regularly, taking aspirin daily, and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol.

Some women develop
gestational diabetes during the late stages of pregnancy. Although this form of diabetes usually goes away after the baby is born, a woman who has had it is more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Gestational diabetes is caused by the hormones of pregnancy or a shortage of insulin.
Diabetes can start at any age.
