 Naturopathic Medicine: Adult Onset Diabetes 

  • Allium sativum (garlic). Lots of garlic.

  • Arctium lappa (Burdock root). High in inulin, an insulin analog.

  • Chionanthus virginicus (Fringetree) for pre-diabetic symptoms such as easy fainting and fatigue.

  • Crataegus spp. (Hawthorne berry). Excellent for vascular tone.

  • Ginkgo biloba (Gingko) to help prevent diabetic retinopathy (failing eyesight) and peripheral vascular disease.

  • Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice root), to maximize adrenal function.

  • Juniperus communis (Juniper berries), a major component of many indigenous diets. Useful as a detoxify agent and to control blood sugar.

  • Lycopus virginicus: (Bugleweed) for the classic symptoms of DM: great thirst, great hunger and great urination.

  • Phaseolus vulgaris (bean pod)

  • Taraxacum officinale (Dandelion root), a mild, Potasium-rich diuretic and liver cleansing herb.

  • Trigonella foenum-graecum: (Fenugreek). This is a traditional remedy for DM, used world-wide.

  • Vaccinium spp. (Bilberry, also known as Huckleberry, especially the leaf) stabilizes blood sugar and improves vascular tone.
    Please consult with a qualified herbalist or naturopathic doctor to get the correct doses and method of administration. Many of these botanical medicines can be eaten as food, but some are best taken in tincture (alcohol extraction) form, and some may be difficult to locate. There does exist, however, a whole world of medicinal herb farms in the U.S., and many of these farmers grow their crops organically, without insecticides or weed-killers, which of course makes this form of medicine all the more desirable.

    What can Homeopathy do for Diabetes?
    Many homeopathic remedies have been applied to the treatment of DM. The trick with homeopathy is, however, to treat YOU, and not just your disease. The homeopathic physician must carefully assess your entire symptom picture, figure out your personality, your hopes and fears, your family history, and put it all together to come up with the single individual remedy that best fits your picture. The following list of remedies is given not so much as a place to begin experimenting (this is not advisable) but for you to read and begin to think about the kind of information your homeopath will want to get in order to find the "similimum." Please read the essay on Homeopathy in the Introduction to Modalities section.
    • Alumen for obstinate constipation; where the stools are flat, thin and take a long time to evacuate.

    • Aluminium Metallicum for coma with drowsiness, you feel unable to recognize people or answer questions; constipation.

    • Argenticum metallicum a remedy for emaciation and great weakness; pale and sallow face and swollen feet.

    • Arsenicum album for dry, brittle scaly skin, dry mouth, unquenchable thirst, no appetite, constipation. Often this patient "wastes away" and becomes very dry and thin.

    • Carbo vegetabilis dryness of mouth in the early morning, pain in liver as if bruised; sudden weakness and fainting, physical depression and lassitude.

    • Chionanthus Virginica for a pre-diabetic state in the patient with liver disease; great thirst, dark, sugary urine; insulin resistant.

    • Graphites for the patient who looks broken down, with gouty and rheumatic problems; emaciation and debility, twitching of limbs and paralytic weakness of joints; sleepless nights.
