Diabetes & Fenugreek, Part 1:  How to Grow Spouts (See Top Pinned Comment)

I read a few articles on the benefits of Fenugreek. At every stage–seed, sprouts, and microgreens (leaves), there are amazing claims for this legume. In my case, I want to test the claims it’s said to have in assisting diabetics with the control of the disease. I am type 2 with a slowly elevating blood glucose levels over time. I am not a fan of injecting myself and, quite honestly, I’m hoping for a miracle cure here. Something akin to the clinical trials I’ve read about. These first two videos are how to grow spouts and microgreens to create the “medicine” I’ll take and the third will be my daily regimen and the results after a period of months. I am skeptical because I tend to believe “if it was so amazing, it would already be a big deal”. Regardless, I’m going for it and I show here how to grow sprouts the IHG Method. Wish me luck. :O)

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Dr Jason Fung has an excellent couple of books on diabetes (that’s his medical specialty). He has he best information of diabetes I’ve found. One of his thesis is that fasting is one of the pillars of prevention and cure (type 2). Please take a look. Be Well

  2. Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent + Gynura procumbens A.K.A. Longevity Spinach: GOOD FOR YOU >> Gynura procumbens also goes by the common name, longevity spinach or cholesterol spinach. It is supposed to have amazing powers to ease such medical conditions as diabetes, high-blood pressure and cholesterol.Jul 20, 2013

  3. I look forward to seeing the results of your experiment. Have you ever tried cinnamon for your diabetes? Years ago we had to buy in bulk and fill our own gel caps, but now you can even buy cinnamon already in pill form from Walmart. There are certain forms of cinnamon that are more effective than others.

  4. I have type 2 diabetes also. You can also try Gymnema. It's mechanism of action is that it helps the pancreas produce more insulin. You can get the liquid tincture on Amazon for $15. It works great.

  5. I will be following this! I am pre-diabetic. I have been for 15 years. I know that getting my weight down will help… now that i am walking again I should be able to shed some pounds.
