Report Touts Common Cinnamon as
I'm going to tell you how someday soon the threat of type 2
diabetes could be wiped out for millions of people. In fact,
some type 2 diabetics may NEVER need drugs again.
true. Dr. Wright has shown us how to overcome and prevent it,
with nothing more costly than table cinnamon.
not talking about some exotic variety, but the stuff that's
already in your cupboard!
until recently, type 2 diabetics thought they had no choice but
to pay through the nose for dangerous drugs, including metformin
(Glucophage®). Side effects from this stuff include extreme
weakness, muscle pain, trouble breathing and even heart
arrhythmia. But now, Dr. Wright's patients have learned...
success can be as simple as saying "sugar and spice!"
It turns out that cinnamon contains a very powerful nutrient
called methylhydroxychalcone polymer -- MHCP for short.
few years ago, a research team led by Dr. Richard Anderson
isolated a part of cinnamon (MHCP) that closely mimics insulin
activity. The researchers observed that a combination of MHCP
and insulin worked synergistically in regulating glucose
researchers concluded that although there were differences
between the responses MHCP and insulin can have on regulating
sugar metabolism, the benefit of combining the two therapies is
clear. They also noted that MHCP does mimic insulin and that, in
most instances, MHCP can work alone -- without the presence of
insulin. Keep reading...

Cinnamon may eliminate the need for drugs in patients with type
According to Dr. Wright, cinnamon/MHCP might not only help
control blood sugar but also, when combined with appropriate
diet, exercise, and other supplementation, make patent
medications and their myriad adverse effects (including
significantly increased cardiovascular mortality and occasional
deaths from other causes) totally unnecessary.
Individuals with type 2 diabetes who aren't using patent
medications should also consider this addition to their diet,
exercise, and supplement plan. If you have a mild case of
diabetes, it's quite possible that your blood sugar level will
normalize simply by using cinnamon or MHCP. At the very least,
it should improve.
in either circumstance, using cinnamon or MHC should postpone or
even help prevent progression of type 2 diabetes and its
complications. Of course, always work with a physician who can
monitor your progress and help you withdraw from any patent
diabetes medication you may be taking.
Since insulin and MHCP have been found to be synergistic, taking
MHCP or whole cinnamon should make it possible to regulate blood
sugar with less insulin. Some complications of type 1 diabetes
may come from insulin use itself, so using less insulin while
maintaining blood sugar control could be beneficial. Always work
with a physician whenever trying to taper down insulin usage.
before you start sprinkling it on...
Anderson noted in his research that all species of cinnamon and
numerous bottles of commercial cinnamon were tried and that they
all worked to help regulate glucose metabolism in his research
Coupled with the widespread availability of self-monitoring
devices for blood sugar measurement, it isn't hard to tell if
cinnamon or MHCP is helpful. However, keep in mind that whole
cinnamon, like most plants and other living things, has both
fat-soluble and water-soluble fractions. There is some evidence
that high levels of the fat-soluble fractions of cinnamon could
be cause for concern.
researchers have found that substances in the fat- (and oil)
soluble fractions of cinnamon may be both carcinogenic and
genotoxic (damaging to genes, and leading to an increased risk
of both cancer and birth defects). Fortunately, these risks are
easily avoidable, and you can still get all the benefits of
cinnamon just by taking a few simple steps.
Anderson has observed that essentially all toxic materials in
cinnamon are fat soluble. He simply recommends that, to be safe,
anyone using more than 1/4 to 1 teaspoonful of whole cinnamon
daily first boil it in water, then pour off the resulting watery
solution for use, and discard the solid remainder, which would
contain the fat- and oil-soluble fractions. Since MHCP is water
soluble, it's still readily available in the watery solution
poured off after boiling the cinnamon.
helpful hint for actually going about separating the oils and
fats on the surface of the water: Try pouring the water through
a cheesecloth (cheesecloths are available in many supermarkets
and other cooking-supply stores).
you prefer not to take these steps, but still want to try this
natural approach to controlling diabetes, you can avoid the
potential hazard of whole cinnamon by using the cinnamon
derivative, MHCP, in supplement form.
As a result I am much more active and have lost some
weight. The increased activity levels bring my blood sugars down and I use less
insulin. Before the water I was using 4 vials of insulin a month. Now I am down
to needing only 2 vials a month! And my A1C numbers have dropped from 2 years
ago at 11, now down to 7. I would like to claim I am eating better, but I can't.
It's all increasing my special water, eliminating diet sodas entirely and being much
Sharing the water with family and friends has been
the most rewarding thing I have done in years. It's so wonderful to hear when a
friend has relief from pain or illness. Every single one has been totally
satisfied with their water processing machine and the results.
The biggest frustration in my life is having family
close to me refuse to drink the water and not believing it will help. Yet they
are the ones most in need of the water and can see how much it has helped me! My
prayer is that they will see the light and try this powerful water and eliminate the
harmful sodas and other toxins from their lives.
Note 2011 - Mom & Dad have moved in with me now and are drinking the water
regularly. The realtor who had seen Dad before the move, when he had not been
drinking the water, saw him at Christmas after he had been drinking it for
only a week and she noticed a profound difference in his ability to speak and
walk. (Dad suffered a massive stroke in 2005) I agree that he is showing many
more good days when the speech comes easier and walking more steady without a
cane. Mom has fairly advanced Alzeheimers and Congestive Heart
Failure. She can't drink much water so her results are less obvious. The little
she does drink seems to have relieved the chronic constipation problems her meds
