My nine year old daughter was found to have full blown diabetes 2 on May 10, 2006 and I was notified. Her readings were 118 and 117 on the 11th and on May 12th, the morning it was 122 but I began the ACV and cinnamon near lunch time and dinner. I am so excited as the research seems true. The night time reading May 12, 2006 was only 93. Yes, I know it is far too soon to feel secure but with all the other info on Earth Clinic and other places I am hoping this is the real deal, so to speak. This is what I did: 2 TBLS _______s raw, unfiltered w/ mother ACV mixed with 4-6oz of water or tea etc, and 1 tsp of cinnamon picked up with small pieces of apple for my child to eat. Both the ACV and Cinnamon have proven track records for this so I cannot even tell you which was better!!

Searching Earth Clinic for something to halt my diarrhea this guy said his mom recommended Cream of Wheat. It would absorb the extra moisture. Then I read about cinnamon as a cure and read about various ways to use it. I decided to combine the two remedies and I make a serving of cream of wheat and I covered it in cinnamon; I probably used 2-3 tsp. I love cream of wheat, so it was painless to scoff this down. It has been 25 minutes. Before I took the remedy I was in the bathroom every 15 minutes or so and my stomach was rumbling so loudly; I never heard it sound so awful!! Now, 25 minutes later there is an occasional low sounding rumble and so far I have not run to the bathroom...no urgency!!

This remedy makes sense; absorbing the excess water causing the diarrhea, and the cinnamon has amazing healing qualities. It was used in the "old days" as a diarrhea/upset stomach remedy, an anti viral/fungal and it helps to treat UTI. I can not contest to these as I have not proven the results. But as for the UTI, that is how I got the diarrhea in the first place. My doctor put on one antibiotic that I was allergic to and then changed the medicine. My stomach was all out of wack and UTI is not gone~! I will keep taking the cinnamon and report that back later. My stomach is calmed down, I do not have cramping and rumbling. No bathroom trips in more than an hour. I am going to bed to get some sleep. And bravo to earth clinic for being there ONCE AGAIN in a middle of the night emergency. I love this website; advice you can rely on (take what you want and leave the rest). Sweet Dreams...Elaine in Chicago.

I have been experiencing very rough diarrhea the past week, and haven't been able to sleep in four days because I was kept away from my bed. I saw the remedy of cinnamon and made my own meal, simple toast with cinnamon sugar on top, and immediately my internal system calmed down. It's a very easy process that has helped me get back into a routine life.

I would like to know how much cinnamon on toast Jeff took and if there was anything else he did. I am having diarrhea with fever & am being treated for bladder infection.I am on antibiotics and I am trying to treat diarrhea naturaly. Appreciate comment."

I made two slices before bed on the fifth night and went to bed. The next morning I didn't feel gas in my abdomen anymore. Then I put approximately one teaspoon of cinnamon in my oatmeal. By that night I was feeling 100% better."


07/09/2010: Matthew from N. Las Vegas, Nevada replies: "I have had steady diarrhea for two weeks now. I became concerned when I woke up with a mess in my bed! I take alot of vitamins and herbs and thought that might be it. I stopped them all two days ago and no better. I found this site and was looking for something around the house I could use. I tried a tsp of cinnamon on two pieces of toast each with some sugar. That was over an hour ago and the pressure in my lower stomach is gone and I don't currently feel a "pressing need" to run to the toilet! Thanks! I'll keep doing this and see how it goes!

Diarrhea (ailment) and Cinnamon (cure): My boyfriend had a stomach virus and was in awful pain. He was throwing up and using the bathroom around every 5-10 minutes. It was to the point where he had nothing left to expell but water and bile. I finally convinced him to drink a tea mix I made. I used- 1 cinnamon stick, broken up with a scissor a big pinch of ground ginger pinch of ground mustard a pinch of ground cloves (or 2 whole) I let it steep from boiling to drinkable temperature. He started getting better almost instantaneously. It stopped not only the diarrhea, but also the throwing up and the incredible pain. I never saw anything work so fast!

I have a question, could you take cinammon pills with the honey instead of mixing it? The cinammon is to over powering for me.

I warm about a cup of water in microwave for a minute. Then, I add a tsp of ceylon cinnamon and a tsp of honey and drink on empty stomach in the morning and again before bed.

The arthritis/swelling in my wrist goes away within half an hour and stays away for about 12 hours! I can't recommend it highly enough."

I was looking on your site a couple days ago and saw a remedy with honey to help lose weight. I tried it and found that i had more energy during the day, had less of an appetite, and fell asleep faster at night!! i love it! the remedy i found was every morning, a half hour before breakfast, as well as right before bed at night, drink a tablespoon of honey in one cup of boiling water with a teaspoon of cinnamon. It has only been four days, but man, what a difference!!

I had read somewhere that fungus could not grow in the presence of cinnamon oil (found in any aromatherapy store), so instead of going to the doctor for an expensive and harmful prescription I decided to try it. I applied it to the cuticle of my nail morning and night and the nail grew out perfectly healthy. My mom had the same problem and when she saw my results she decided to try it too and got the same results.

Hello, I am new to this site; am really enjoying and learning alot! I have a question for anyone that takes cinnamon supplements. Are there any recommendations of which brand? I know it helps reduce inflammation and would like to take it daily.

Hello Rocky. I currently take cinnamon myself & have been quite a while now. You should look preferably for an organic cinnamon product. There are many to choose from but make sure you do get organic. Google cinnamon research & its many health benefits.

I have also gotten my mother on it for her diabetes which this substance is known for helping treat. I take 1/2 tsp twice daily with a little water or olive oil. You can take it with or without food but I take it right after meals. Good luck & God Bless!

Hi Guys, I have had this disease from few years now & never bothered till the bumps & lumps got bigger & spreading with marks on my skin.... I got this disease all around my pubic hair....

I have found a remedy after trying nearly everything I read abt this diesease....

Try this and in a months time not only will you get rid of the marks & scars.... But it is the best remedy for this diesease....

No surgery needed.....

All you need is honey & cinnamon powder....

Yes thats it....

One tablespoon of honey & one half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder.... Mix them & make a paste...... Apply this all over your infected area & cover it with tissue.... Or any cloth leave it for three to four hours.... Do this preferably before you go to sleep.....

The best bit is it smells good & is good for ur skin as well.....

In one months time..... You are free from this chronic disease....

Good luck & be well...

Warning

Hey ya'll, I've been battling hypoglycemia lately and I've found some great stuff here on EC. So thanks to everyone for posting and special thanks to Ted for all of his input.

I did want to point out, however, that if you are dealing with hypoglycemia, be careful of taking too much cinammon. Most of the blood sugar supplements out there are for diabetics and the emphasis is on lowering blood sugar.

I read on one post that cinammon will "stabilize" blood sugar and it will, if you are diabetic. On the other hand, if you are hypoglycemic, cinammon could potentially drive your blood sugar too low. I guess "stabilize" means "lower" to a diabetic, I should have caught that.

So just be careful with cinammon and hypoglycemia. I experienced this myself when I tried taking 500 mg, twice per day. I took one tablet at night and one in the morning and by mid morning, my sugar plummeted. The cinammon was the only thing I changed in my daily routine. Before this, I had been getting progressively better and sugar swings were becoming less and less frequent.

Cheers, JRo

For profuse menstruation drink freely of a tea made with red raspberry leaves and cinnamon bark or cinnamon bark alone. This remedy will be found very effective for reducing pain and flow.

In a gel-capsule combine ground cinnamon and dried red raspberry leaves of equal volume; not by volume weight. Combine half the gel-cap with cinnamon and the other half with red raspberry. Gently packed the red raspberry leaves. The gel cap size is of your choice. I use size 00.

An easy way to fill a capsule is to place the ground or powdered material in a saucer or on a plate and scoop the two sections of the capsule together through the material; both halves will fill.

Fill one whole capsule with ground cinnamon and one whole capsule with dried ground red raspberry leaves. Use half of the cinnamon capsule and it place on one end of half the red raspberry capsule. Look at the capsule halves closely as one side is longer and a little bit bigger. This is so the two halves will combined to make one capsule.

Essential Oil Inhalation cure for Bronchitis, Sinus Infections, Pneumonia

I regularly get sinus infections due to a deformity in one of my sinuses. Until a few years ago when I found this cure I had regular bronchitis and lastly in 2005 I had serious pneumonia. I opted out of health insurance years ago so I had to take responsibility for my own health.
I got onto one of those $39.95 sites with the magical cure but this one WORKED! So here it is for all of you.

The following essential oils are 89% antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal. Cinnamon, Clove and Oregano. First, get the best quality you can.

These oils work magic together BUT, you can use just one or a combo of two if that is all you can get. Put 2-3 drops of each oil in a steamer or a steaming pan of water. BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET THE OILS ON YOUR SKIN...They burn. Cinnamon and Clove burn. (Cinnamon Oil is the main ingredient of all those lip plumpers :-) Now, inhale the steam with your eyes closed and take it in as deeply as you possibly can, breathing through the nose and the mouth alternately. When I did this with my pneumonia, I felt a kind of crack in my lungs after three or four breaths and everything started to come loose. I coughed up all the guck and was completely well in 5 days. I was so sick that I had bruised my ribs from the coughing and I was very, very weak. Now at the first sign of anything respiratory, I do this. I have never had a reoccurence of bronchitis or pneumonia and very seldom get any sinus trouble anymore. How happy I am that we can all share these wonderful old rememdies with each other! Thanks to this site and all of you.
