Let me reiterate that I HAVE never claimed to be an expert or professional on black seed or ANY OTHER HERBAL/ALTERNATIVE MED! Like MOST of you, I came to share and learn in hopes of improving my health with alternative methods. I am a type II diabetic, and I also have neuropathy in my feet, which causes pain and tingling. Not that i joined curezone to air ALL my ailments lol, but I have to clear the air, as I've now been accused of being a novice and misleading hopinso! I only suggested to hopinso or OTHERS what has worked for me! I DO take black seed with other meds (glucose lowering), and it has had no side effects for ME! I use black seed orally and topically.
This public forum was not opened so that dictatorial advice could be given. I will share what has worked for me, but will also welcome ANY SOUND ADVICE. I also have said before and will reiterate, that I AM NOT an EXPERT, I have never claimed to be, and ANYONE pursuing alternative health methods should do their own due diligence and research first! I have said this since day one. YES I AM A NOVICE (in terms of being able to prescribe ANY herb or spice to treat illness)! And any advice given by ME is based on personal use and what has worked for me and my family. I will also share credible articles and information published by the alternative med community.
Additionally, 100% fruit juice has as much natural Sugar as a spoonful (tsp) of RAW HONEY and can be consumed in moderation by pre and diabetics, when taken in conjunction with black seed or black seed oil or other organic herbs. I take the black seed oil, at LEAST twice a day, and chasing it with juice OR HONEY at night helps it go down easier. JUST AS HONEY ENERGIZES, RAW HONEY IS RECOMMENDED FOR INSOMNIA AND IS NOT DISCOURAGED FROM BEING TAKEN AT NIGHT!!! Again, I also alternatively take black seed with juice at night, BUT PLEASE implement the methods you feel best and what works for YOU. If juice at night, energizes you, take it with water or milk!!! I came here to LEARN, not to stand on a pedestal and look down upon others!!! I AM not an EXPERT, AND HAVE NEVER CLAIMED TO BE ANYTHING ELSE!
