Fenugreek is perhaps best known as a natural herbal remedy that can be used to increase a mother's breast milk supply. Mothers have been using it for that purpose for centuries. However, the leaves of the herb fenugreek are also used medicinally for skin care, arthritis symptoms, lowering cholesterol, modulating blood sugar levels, and as an anti-inflammatory. In cuisine, fenugreek leaves and seeds often are included in Indian curries as well as in the foods of East Africa.
Traditional Chinese Medicine additionally uses Fenugreek seeds as a natural remedy for a general range of conditions, and it is internationally used for diabetes. Use of fenugreek supplements might even increase male libido!
[YEA] Fenugreek steeped into a tea / mouthwash cured abscessed teeth. I rinsed my mouth and then soaked a gauze pad and placed in in my mouth for an hour at a time and it drew the infection out of my system. Sometimes I had to open a little hole in my gums so it would drain. I had 10 abscessed teeth at one time and did this for many months. It helped me alot as I didn't have any medical coverage to go to a dentist myself. I still to this day recommend this to anyone with the same problem.
[YEA] Hi, I will have to add that fenugreek tea or supplement are a very good remedy for those who are trying to gain weight. Also, fenugreek promote the appetite. For the breastfeeding mums, fenugreek enhance amazingly the milk amount in breats.(produce more milk)

[YEA] One of your contributors said that she had lost weight by taking the herb Fenugreek. I tried it for five days and couldn't stop eating and found that I'd put four pounds on in five days. And when I looked up Fenugreek I discovered that it is an appetite stimulant. So other readers please be aware.
I'm not questioning what the contributor said, because I think that we all react differently to what we intake. That was her experience and it rests there.
I recently went on holiday to China and Japan, and when I arrived back was struck with an overwhelming tiredness, and every bone in my body ached. Was it jet lag, I wondered, but the symptoms still continued, so I starting taking Apple Cider Vinegar, Maple Syrup, lemon juice, bi carb, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Within a couple of days I'd started to feel well again, and so have continued with this mixture, and I am amazed at the way it has increased my energy and well being.
However, I'm sorry to report there's been no weight loss!! Thanks for your web site. I do enjoy it!Replied by Roro
