Type 2 Diabetes

The Chinese Remedy for Type 2 Diabetes

The Chinese civilization in the ancient times developed a successful treatment for Wasting and Thirsting Syndrome which in the present times is now used as a method to control diabetes. This is because thirsting and wastage of energy are the common symptoms in both the cases.

Chinese herbs are indeed quite an effective tool against diabetes. As these herbs are employed in their most natural forms, their effect seems to be directly on the affected body organs (pancreas). Hence, their popularity across the world is rapidly soaring.

Let's have a look at some of the notable remedies from the Chinese Kingdom.

Mai Men Dong:
Latest Chinese research has shown that an herb named 'mai men dong' can help in the treatment of diabetes. The claim is made based upon a demonstration in which the herb was seen as a potential cause of regeneration of cells in the pancreas.

As readers might be aware, pancreas is almost entirely made up of insulin-producing cells, which are responsible for helping absorption of blood sugar in our muscles and tissues. If the claims can be empirically verified, then this particular stimulation of regeneration of insulin-producing cells can be used to treat diabetes in those cases in which the body has ceased to produce insulin.

Tian Hua Fen:
Apart from 'mai men dong' there is another Chinese herb which, Chinese researchers claim, has shown a lot of promise in the treatment of diabetes. The herb is called 'tian hua fen' (or trichosanthis) ad research has shown that it can help in the lowering of blood sugar level inside our body.

Other Herbs:
There are a few other herbs which are used alongside 'mai men dong' and 'tian hua fen' to control diabetes. These herbs include the Chinese wild yam, bittermelon (an Asian vegetable) and lude astragalus.

Herb Preparations: Yu Xiao San 8805
This herb formulation was developed by Dr. Lianjin Chong, Director of The Red Cross Hospital in Beijing. Its designated objective was to restore production of insulin producing cells inside the pancreas. The formulation is made up of herbs such as Niu Bang Zi (Fructus Arctii Lappae), Ramulus Euonymi Alatae, Di Gu Pi (Cortex Lycii Chinensis Radicis), Wei Ling Xian (Radix Clemetidis Chinensis), Jie Geng (Radix Platycodi Grandiflori), E Zhu (Rhizoma Curcumae Zedoariae), Ren Shen (Radix Ginseng) and Li Zhi He (Semen Litchi Chinensis).

The formulation has undergone rigorous experimental tests both in China and the United States. The results found after these extensive user trials have been encouraging. So far, observers have not come across any negative reaction or allergies on the liver, kidney or any other bodily organs. Due to these positive results, the preparation is being actively promoted in at least fifty countries of the world.

An important note; these herbs are used mainly for treating Type 2 diabetes. Hence, expect only limited miracles from them.
