Evaluation of the Efficacy of Homeopathic Remedies in Lowering FBS and A1c in 15 patients with Type 1 Diabetes – Summary of aA 7 Year Observatio

Dr. Seyedaghanoor Sadeghi followed a group of type 1 diabetics for 6 years to determine whether homeopathic remedies could lower fasting blood sugar and A1c.



This study sought to determine whether homeopathic remedies could lower fasting blood sugar and A1c.


Due to the increased prevalence of patients with type 1diabetes (T1D), in Iran, USA and many other countries, especially Scandinavia, the author decided to apply a natural, safe, complementary and holistic method of healing to enhance beta cells’ activity and to lower the need of patients for Insulin. This study (2009 – 2015) was done to evaluate the efficacy of homeopathic remedies in patients with T1D.

Materials and Methods

Among 169 diabetic patients seen at the clinic, 15 patients with T1D ,i.e. 11.26% were admitted. Their first interviews and physical examinations were carried out, taking about 60 minutes for each patient. All but one were under treatment with insulin, and that person was referred to an endocrinologist to start insulin.  Their rubrics were analyzed by the internationally used diagnostic software, Radar 8.1, and their simillimum or constitutional remedies were selected and prescribed. The cases were followed up for effectiveness and duration of action of the prescribed remedies. Their blood sugars were monitored 3-5 times a day. A1c was tested every 2-3 months. Their insulin was continued, as prescribed by their M.D.’s. As soon as the patients’ fasting blood sugars ( FBS) started coming down, they were guided on how to lower their daily insulin, starting from the morning dose. Syzygium was added to the patients’ remedies during the last 2 years of the study with remarkable results. It was prescribed separately based on their FBS. Patients that were seen later than their supposed follow-up appointments and did not take homeopathic remedies on time, reported increased numbers and more need for insulin.


Among the 15 patients, 12 cases, ie. 80% of them experienced better numbers of FBS and A1c  after taking homeopathic remedies, including Syzygium and their simillimums.  For juvenile patients, their parents reported better behavior and found more compliance in addition to better numbers of FBS and A1c. Non-juvenile patients reported more inner calmness and experiencing greater self control. These are typically the holistic effects of constitutional remedies, since such remedies cover emotional symptoms that can affect their limbic systems through changes in neurotransmitters.  The limbic system is a part of one’s brain, like a window, through which he/she looks at the surrounding people and environment.


The results show a strong association between the use of homeopathic remedies and the lowering of FBS, and A1c, and their need for insulin.  Their increased need for insulin after discontinuing the remedies, or failing to take remedies on time is another scientific sign of the true effects of the homeopathic remedies. The patients experienced remarkable changes in their behavior, showing the holistic effects of the homeopathic remedies. Considering insulin resistance after long daily use, homeopathy can be considered as an effective and safe method for T1D patients. Thus the author suggests doing more studies, especially controlled clinical trials to further demonstrate the efficacy of the remedies in these patients, including  remedies like Syzygium in the patients’ regimen.

    • Dear Sanjiv

      Arnica is one of the good remedies in healing various conditions including diabetes and diabetes foot ulcer. You can also take advantage of lower potencies like 6x.

      I love Arnica for its vast range of action!

      Good Luck,

  • I have also observed similar results with syzygium jamb. Mother tincture. Congratulations to Dr. Sadeghi and thanks to this publish more articles on Diabetes and blood pressure problems.

  • Hello! I am wondering do you see patients in the US? IF not can you direct me to one that can help with a child of mine that was diagnosed with T1 a year and a half ago? Since then we have been very successful in keeping the a1c 6.2 or below… in addition there are days of very little need for insulin… currently using less than 4 units TOTAL per day… currently the docs consider my child to still be in the “honeymoon” period.. The thing is it seems my child has a signalling issue more so than a production issue.. low body temp, low thyroid and insufficient antioxidants as well as decreased gut flora… Our diet consists ONLY of foods directly from our Creator, NOTHING processed and ZERO added sugar – only what is naturally present in the foods made by our Creator… pretty much stick to a “paleo” type regime… All to say is from a dietary perspective there shouldn’t be anything that is exasperating the condition.. Typical allopaths are unable to help us and we much prefer holistic approaches! Have read some of your studies and am quite encouraged… hoping you can at the very least point us in the right direction 🙂 thanks!!!
