The article discusses various approaches to cure diabetes. Ginseng is a traditional cure-all that restores a more health-promoting balance to the body. Studies show that people with diabetes who consume ginseng before an oral glucose challenge had lower blood-glucose levels. Unripe bitter melon, a cucumber-shaped fruit, is a traditional Asian diabetes remedy. Individuals who drank juiced bitter melon had lower fasting and postprandial blood-glucose levels. Bitter melon includes physiologically active agents that affect glucose metabolism, including an insulin- resembling molecule. INSET: Rejection Correction.
