I read one of Ted's posts about taking Vanadium Sulfate to help lower blood sugar... I have been taking 200 grams a day not milligrams, but GRAMS. Since I've been taking it, I have been so dizzy, lethargic and weak... I have absolutely no energy, am fatigued... Good thing is though, that my Insomnia is gone and I have been sleeping like a rock!!!!! DOG TIRED!!! I've stopped taking the Vanadium Sulfate a week ago, but still have this fatigue and weakness... How do I get rid of it?? It's almost like Vertigo, but not quite... Maybe Hypoglycemia.... Help!

Why on earth would you take 200 grams of anything? That's just crazy! I hope you got proper medical assistance for this?

Sometimes humans tend to think "well if a little is good, then I'll take a lot and that will be better" - well this is just not the case! Just because something is natural, doesn't mean it can't have serious side effects.

To Joyce from Dallas, Tx - if you want to lower your blood sugar - there are several natural ways you can do this without getting too much and hurting yourself. One way is cinnamon. They sell tablets of 1000 mg. now and you can take one with each meal to lower your blood sugar. I would not take more than that unless you were eating a large amount of carbs.

The second way is to use an herb called gymnemma. It is a great herb in that it helps restore your pancreas. You can also take two to three a day safely.

The Last way you can lower your sugar naturally - besides exercise - is to eat a low carb - moderate protein diet.

BUT - the CAUTION is: Don't Over-do on the supplements. (You'll make yourself sicker) ~ AND - IF you are using Insulin - you Must keep tabs on your blood sugar - because these supplements will really bring your sugar DOWN pretty rapidly.

As for what you have now - you can drink hot lemonade two to three times a day for a couple of days and see if it will re-balance your body. It ususally works to clear you of anything that is upsetting your body. Do Not use Honey to sweeten it as it might cause you diarrhea. Good luck!

Gymnema has tendency to raise blood pressure, So those with HBP should take caution. JdparkUSA

Hello! :) I have a problem , so that I would like you to help with The vinegar-cure stuff.

I soaked my hand fingers in vinegar once a day. For 3 days I repeated the action. Today my fingers ached so heavy that is even unbearable, and even there is a swelling that terrifys me.

Please, I would be very grateful if you could help me and tell me what to do in order to solve my problem.

Thank you in advance. Regards, Jovana
