May I ask you a question? I read an article by a dietitian who wrote that there are compounds in turmeric which increase insulin production; he has never answered my letter, in which I sought further information on these compounds. Do you know these compounds? Can you direct me to more information?Also being a research scholar I have done alot of research on how and what to take. Have read that some people take turmeric and boil it enough with water. A word of caution... curcumin is insoluble in water and is moderately stable to heat. So its advisable to not to boil it. Best way I think would be to grind it and take it with milk. Any comments?

if what you believe is true then people with medical conditions where the insulin level is low should not get affected by this disease. Is that true?. Secondly..some people have flare-ups once a year despite being on same diet- low carb..lets say. So what happens that their insulin level suddenly rises and leads to flare-ups and then things again settle down for another year. Would like to know your comments on this.
It would seem reasonable to assume that any substance like sugar substitutes or sugar alcohols (which are sweeter than sugar) would prompt the pancreas to produce even more insulin than regular sugar does.As some researchers have suggested, because they taste sweeter than sugar, artificial sweeteners train your taste buds to prefer very sweet foods.
on page 150:...turmeric is thought to strengthen the immune system, relieve inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, improve digestion, relieve gas, kill parasites and worms, alleviate menstrual problems, dissolve gallstones, and relieve other ailments.... While it's still too early to recommend it for specific medicinal uses, turmeric shows early promise for several medical conditions, mainly due to the powerful properties of its major active component, curcumin. Curcumin consists mainly of the smaller bioactive components turmerone, atlantone, zingiberone, and heptanoids. Other compounds mainly consist of various proteins, sugars, resins, vitamins, and minerals.
On page 174: Chamomile is a wonderfully healing herb. It can help alleviate heartburn, indigestion, and insomnia.... Chamomile, however, does contain a compound called coumarin that can act as a blood thinner, so we don't recommend drinking more than 6 cups a day, especially if you are already on a blood thinner.
Caffeine can raise the blood sugar level in some people...
