These Leaves Treat Diabetes Naturally


Diabetes has become a worldwide health problem. The disease is created when production of insulin by the pancreas is slowed or stopped, and the ability of the body to produce the hormone is inhibited. There are three types of diabetes. Type 1, also known as juvenile diabetes, happens when the immune system malfunctions and attacks the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Type 2, also called adult-onset diabetes, is lifestyle related. It happens when the body cannot use insulin properly, or does not produce sufficient amounts. The third type is gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy, typically during the second trimester.

The most commonly seen symptoms of diabetes are:

Extreme thirst
Frequent urination, especially at night
Constant fatigue
Blurred vision
Itching around the penis or vagina
Cuts and wounds that heal slowly
Unexplained loss of weight

The long term effects of diabetes can be devastating. They range from impaired vision or blindness to heart disease, kidney failure, erectile dysfunction in men, and nerve damage.

There are herbal approaches to treating diabetes. One Chinese medicine remedy that is widely-used is mango leaves. Mango leaves contain phenolic constituents, including caffeic acid, polyphenols such as mangiferin and gallic acid, and flavonoids.

It is easy to use mango leaves. Simply add ten to fifteen tender leaves to a container of water, and boil. Then leave the to soak overnight. In the morning, strain the mixture and drink the water on an empty stomach, every day for two to three months.

You can also dry the leaves in a dark corner, then grind them. Take half a teaspoon of the resulting powder twice a day.

Mango leaves are also powerful antioxidants, high in vitamin C, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients. They are also used to combat asthma, colds, fever, insomnia, diarrhea, varicose veins and bronchitis. The leaves also support vascular health and lower blood pressure.

Mango leaves can be purchased in some Chinese groceries, and on the internet.


  1. Type 1 for 52 yrs. Don’t know anything about mango leaves, much less where I would be able to obtain them to try.
    Gymnema Syvestre does work very well because it 1) blocks some of the absorption of glucose in the digestive process and 2) stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin in most type 2 diabetics and in several studies has made the pancreas in type 1 begin to function. I take 2000mg per day morning/evening split and have reduced my basal level insulin by 50%. I have not had a hypoglycemic episode since following this regimen plus the one that follows below,
    Diabetics should eat a plant based whole foods diet w/o any dairy products and be extremely careful in consuming carbohydrates high in the glycemic index. Removing gluten based foods is also helpful. I follow all of this and no longer take any blood pressure meds or statins, I am a 58 yr old physically active diabetic who got very, very sick 5 months ago following a hypoglycemic episode. It was combined with severe side effects from a combination of 2 blood pressure meds which made all symptoms appear to be diabetic autonomic neuropathy. I found an integrated practitioner who changed my entire diet and had me read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. I strongly suggest everyone to get this book and read it. By far the best medical/diet/food study backed by 35 yrs of scientific studies from leading universities and medical establishments globally.
    Good luck!

  2. Papaya leaves are reportedly effective for the same reasons, including against dengue and Zika. But of course the pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that.
