Cool keith, lots of places for us to go, now you just gave us a few more.
type 1 diabetes, there is a herb from india, gymnema sylvestre that causes the islet of langerhorn in the pancreas to produce beta cell that lower blood sugar, it may take up to a year to work, it may be a lot less, but it works,it can be bought at most health food stores or cheaper on line. i'm extremely prone to type 1, been doing gymnema sylvestre for 18 years,still not diabetic. diabetes can be controlled or reversed with a raw food diet
