    How deeply misleading. Some of the studies showed no statistically significant effect and the rest only showed effects in specific circumstances. In all cases where there was an effect, the authors note that the cinnamon should only supplement existing medication, not replace (i.e. not a remedy).

    Is this the type of cherry picking you need for a PhD in ‘Alternative Medicine?.’ There is a name for alternative medicine that works – Medicine!

    Hello Rob, and thank you for your passionate and (a bit) angry comment. Let me address two major concerns for you.

    1. The definition of a “remedy” per Merriam-Websters: “a medicine, application, or treatment that relieves or cures a disease”

    I believe you can agree that “rememdy” per the actual definition is not misleading at all.

    2. You say, “There is a name for alternative medicine that works – Medicine!” Well if that were true then there would be no diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or autoimmune illnesses (just to name a few)- in fact, statistics are getting worse and not better despite countless pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, it seems the people you should be concerned with are drug companies as they obviously “cherry pick” results of their studies in lieu of profit (until it is recalled of course). Have you ever noticed how the side effects are often worse than the “remedy”?

    Speaking from a personal experience after my diagnosis of MS, so-called “medicine” offered me nothing but drugs and little hope of a cure (per their wisdom, there isn’t one). So I took matters into my hands and became responsible for my health by changing everything in my life, In other words, I ate only organic foods, addressed nutritional deficiencies, managed stress, etc…long story short – I recovered my health 100% naturally.

    I guess we all come from our own perspective 🙂

    Thanks again for your comment and I wish you the best of health!
