I forgot to add that Joe and Teresa Graedon,
http://www.peoplespharmacy.org , recently did an article on a diabetes
patient who had finally controlled his blood sugar levels consistently.  The
patient's doctor asked him what he was doing differently, and it turned out
that his new girlfriend, a woman from Mexico, was making him tea from
nopalito cactus (prickly pear, Opuntia) to drink three times a day.  There
is medical research showing this works in animals, but the human research is
not conclusive.  They suggested that people who want to try this work
closely with their doctors in monitoring their blood sugar levels.  No
details were given on the strength of the tea, or whether the tea was made
from fresh or dried fruits, pads, or flowers.
