First thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon cinnamon powder mixed in hot water. Breath stays fresh throughout the day.

I sprinkle powdered cinnamon on my oatmeal every day, and include it in every recipe that it works with. The bedbugs don't bite me anymore. They have all died of starvation. I figured that if bedbugs hate cinnamon, then why not get it into me, to make it even more effective. It's tasty, and good for you, too. I ingested some cinnamon every day for about three months to totally get rid of the bugs. WARNING: We're only talking about the powdered cinnamon that you buy from the spice shelf at the grocery store. (NOT the concentrated oils in Rest Ease which would be highly toxic.)

Bedbugs can live for a year without feeding on anything. They can even live in a year (at least) in an empty apartment. Are you sure it was the cinnamon? http://www.wired.com/2014/10/essential-oils-fail-killing-bed-bugs/

How do I mix the witch hazel, distilled water, and cinnamon to put in a spray bottle because the recipe you have calls for one gallon of distilled water.

I started having nose bleeds, again. My brother told me to sniff a little cinnamon and that would stop it and clot it. It worked.

Try cinnamon on your next burn. I keep it in my car, back/sports pack, work & kitchen. Any burn; iron, gas/electric/wood stove, insect or jellyfish sting, motorcycle muffler or abrasion can be remedied using this native healing product. Our family has been using for generations for it's anispetic/healing capability. May be applied as often as needed. Doesn't stain clothing or furniture. Promotes healing via it's phytochemical compounds to reduce pain, counteract bacteria and disinfect wounds without blistering and little to no scarring. I've had 3rd degree burns from a clothes iron (inner arm) and from motorcycle pipes (leg calf) and have no scarring. Use it on my grandkids at the beach when they encounter jelly fish. Simply shake on, the pain is immediately gone. If pain returns (as with 2nd & 3rd degree burns) simply shake on more. Blistering will be minimal & will not run (aka 'leak'). Scabbing will look slightly darker than normal, but will come off without leaving any disfigurment to the skin surface. On major injuries, I use until fully scabbed. (And it smells good too! )

My cholesterol was above normal my Dr put me on Lipitor causing memory issues. So I decided to to stop taking it and eat oatmeal and cinnamon because I had researched natural remedies and this is what I found could lower it. It worked. My cholesterol is still borderline but my HDL and triglecirides are good so my Dr is happy with my results. I have add apple cider vinegar to regimen. Hope everyone has my success. Thank you for your website.

Cinnamon for smelly drains! I discovered I had a sulfur-smelling kitchen sink drain when I moved into a new apartment -- it was a strong smell that would spread through the house! Tried repeated treatments of pouring baking soda into the drain, then washing it down with vinegar, then rinsing with hot water 30 minutes later. It helped some, but not enough. By accident, I discovered that true cinnamon powder would fix the problem. I had spilled about a half cup of cinnamon into that sink and simply rinsed it down the drain with enough water to avoid clogging the drain. The drain smelled fresh the next day and every day after. Cinnamon acts as a natural antibiotic. It saved me from having to bring in a plumber.

Using Cinnamon to reduce Glucose Levels.

I have read much research on the internet that shows 3-6 grams per day of Cinnamon included in the daily diet will reduce Glucose levels. It consistently states that regular, daily intake of cinnamon improves glucose control and cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes. 3-6 grams of Cinnamon would be approximately the tip of a teaspoon.

I also saw that other factors can also raise or lower your Blood Glucose levels.

FOOD: Bread, pasta, rice, pastry, and some types of fruits and vegetables can all contribute to a rise in blood sugar. Research this on the internet to see what works for best you.

EXERCISE: Even the smallest amount of daily exercise can help to lower blood glucose levels. I suggest that you work a little exercise into your daily schedule - walk more, park your car a little further away from the store, use the stairs instead of the elevator.

SUNLIGHT: Low levels of vitamin D in the body have been linked to insulin insensitivity and lowered glucose tolerance. Sitting in full sunlight for 20 to 30 minutes, at least three times a week, can help maintain calcium levels and help lower blood glucose levels.

Hopefully one or two of these will appeal to you and you will use them.

Cinnamon Tablets cured my Hypoglycemia! I use to suffer from Hypoglycemia until I started taking Cinnamon tablets which you can purchase at any Health Food store or Vitamin shop. The Cinnamon helps to stabilize your blood sugar when taken on a daily basis. It's inexpensive and ALL natural. I havn't had any hypoglycemic episodes since I've been taking the Cinnamon. 500 to 1000mg per day is what is recommended. You will experience immediate results!!!

My blood sugar was consistantly 126, which is high pre- diabetic. I read the results of several cinnamon trials and began taking three 500 mg. capsules of it around two years ago. My fasting blood sugar dropped to between 89 -103, and has remained at that level. I am tested at a local senior citizens center once a month. It is a finger-stick test. A serum test once was 106.

It has been known for a long time that taking Cinnamon tablets, Coenzyme Q-10, and Chromium Picolinate lowers blood sugar in Diabetics... I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for 32 years, and have found this to be true after reading many articles as to their usefulness, and finally taking them in a quest to lower my blood sugars..

I have been a type one diabetic for around 7 years and most of the knowledge I have about it has come from my curiosity about my ailment. I read an article about cinnamon in a diabetes magazine that suggested it helped blood sugar control, and I have been using about a table spoon in a half cup of apple sauce, and I have been finding that my waking blood sugars and throughout the day have become much tighter and I have lowered my insulin levels slightly because I simply don't need as much. I am still tinkering with the mix, but my blood sugar has definitely seen change for the better since I added some cinnamon

Be careful with cinnamon. There is a chemical in table cinnamon which is a carcinogenic. Don't take it over a long time. Make sure you buy the kind that is "Cinnulin PF". My physician has his phd in nutrition and is the head of Integrative Medicine. He rarely puts anyone on pharmaceuticals.

I also know that a sliced apple eaten, as well as green tea with a stick of cinnamon to brew and a dash of black pepper lowers blood sugar. It worked with my elderly mother and some of her friends. Also fenugreek, available in Pharmacies, eg. CVS, works well.
